  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday
  • THANK YOU! You guys are awesome! All the kind words and cheers are appreciated. I was just talking about doing things when you’re scared.  I was low key scared to change my blog that’s why I put it of for years. I did it and I lived.  Don’t let fear stop you. Thank you guys for rocking with me over the years and hello to the new folks! Outfit head to toe @jcpenney #heytrina 📷 @kaynjames
  • New blog, who dis? Y’all! I’m so happy to reintroduce myself...Hey Trina! I’ve been wanting to change my name for over 5 years. Baby Shopaholic has held me down for 8 years! Even though I have kids, I felt that the “baby” aspect was holding me back. Content will still be the same. Now I feel I can venture out and continue to focus on life hacks, style and conversations to help other moms and women to live their best mom life! Visit www.heytrina.com. I hope y’all continue to rock with me! #heytrina #rebranding

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?
