• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

Black Mom Magic at The Momference

May 23, 2018

This past weekend I had the honor of speaking on a panel in DC at The Momference aka Wakanda for black moms.  As a blogger/influencer that attends lots of events, there is a huge void in events with black mothers in mind.  I’m usually one of a handful of women of color.  This Black Mom Magic experience is the brainchild of DMV area PR specialist Simona Noce and Nikki Osei-Barrett.  I’m still on a high one from this one-day event.  It was pure magic, almost like a dream.  To walk in a room of over 250 black moms (and a few dads) that looked like me and could relate to me, it was magical.  I left feeling inspired celebrated and empowered.  Check out a few of the beautiful photos from The Momference by Iris Manning.

Things kicked off at 7am with a VIP breakfast where VIP ticket holders and speakers got to mingle before the event kicked off. 

Founders coming in dancing down the aisle.  We were all here for it.  The energy was like that all day!

The first panel on the main stage talked about modern parenting featuring Jamilah Lemieux from Interactive One, Kelli Coleman from She Who Dares and Dr. Rainbow Barris aka Tha Real Rainbow from Blackish.  It was great to hear how these powerful ladies handle motherhood with being in the spotlight. 

The Mommy Market was filled with vendors curated with black mothers in mind.  Most of the vendors were black women and mothers with products that we don’t often see for ourselves.

I spoke on the panel Handle Your Business Mama with Dayna Bolden, Christine Michel Carter, Shante William and Candace Montgomery. Major gems were dropped on how we’ve been successful in growing our businesses while being a mother.

The day wrapped up with an emotional champaign toast by the founders. I’m not crying…You’re crying. Wrap top and pants c/o Suakoko Betty | Shoes, Vince Cumoto

Magical is the only way I can describe it.  Kind of like that feeling after watching Black Panther or seeing a black American woman marry a prince.  Black women, especially black moms are underrated and underrepresented.  I’m so inspired and empowered.  I’m walking with a little more swag and my head held a little higher after attending The Momference. To attend an event that was created by us, for us gives me butterflies.  I’m so proud of Nikki and Simona.  Make sure you CLICK HERE to sign up for their email updates.
