• And another ☝🏾. My precious babies. How did Harper grow up so fast! She looks 6! Slow down baby! #pictureday

On Saturday I’ll be chatting momprenuership with Suakoko Betty owner @iamcharlenedunbar at the @craftsavvymarket. Event is free! Plus you can shop @supermomculture and 25 other handmade vendors. Time flies! I’m still desperately trying to fit back in it! My goal for 2020!
  • Fall school pics are in and Peyton made mama proud! Low key annoyed they cut off her beautiful puff. It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!
  • Getting ready for our first vendor sale at @craftsavvymarket in Atlanta this Saturday! I’ll have hoodies, tees, bags and a few new items 😆. Special discount st the event.

Judge your supermama 😂
  • Me busting into 2020! Amazing day at @cantuxcurlboxmasterclass19! So many gems from @myleik @meccagamble @thefinancebar @theamonyee today! These ladies didn’t come to play. Real talk from start to finish. I’ll share my takeaways on my stories later but @cantubeauty commitment to insuring we take action and holding us accountable is what I needed.  Time is up for going to events and not taking action.  I’m ready! 📷 @daynabolden. Hat from #targetstyle Jeans #fashionova
  • Some weekend project inspiration! Cleaned out my kitchen cabinets to get ready for the holidays.  Details on blog https://heytrina.com/kitchen-cabinet-drawer-organization/
  • We’re taking neon right into winter! I saw @funmiford with this coat on a few weeks ago and ordered it the next day.  Wouldn’t you know, it matches my @supermomculture hoodie perfectly! Consider this my winter uniform. Details and links are on the blog heytrina.com. Link to hoodie in my profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?
  • What am I? If you don’t know ask your elementary & Jr high kids. #andioop #sksksksk #savetheturtles #halloweencostume

The Difference between #BlackLivesMatter & #AllLivesMatter

July 13, 2016

There’s a strong support for #BlackLivesMatter but there are a lot of people screaming back that #AllLivesMatter.  Duh!?  Yes all lives matter but there are some lives that need a little more support.  I must admit, a few years ago after the Travon Martin case, I didn’t think there was anything wrong with saying All Lives Matter.  Actually, there’s nothing wrong with saying it, just don’t say it in response to Black Lives Matter, umkay?  After deep conversations with a friend, I was like “Oooohh”.  I’m going to try and help you get it if you’re still confused.blacklivesmatter

  • All children matter but what about the one’s fighting cancer, abused, and hungry?
  • All women matter but what about women battling breast cancer?
  • All babies matter but what about premature babies?
  • All women matter but what about women being abused?
  • All men matter but what about the men being murdered at the hands of bad cops?

Basically, if you can support Susan G Komen, you can support Black Lives Matter. The Black Lives Matter movement is to encourage change and hold bad cops accountable for their actions.  How many more videos do we need to see of black men being killed unjustly at the hands of bad cops.  Black Lives Matter doesn’t mean Police Lives Don’t Matter.  I truly believe that majority of cops are awesome.  They protect and serve us everyday.

I hope this helps you to understand why Black Lives Matter and you’ll pause before saying All Lives Matter. You won’t respond to a person that wants to fight breast cancer with “Well, all breast matter”.  Got it?
