  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

  • Spring is here but no spring break 😓. Just over here washing my hands, trying to stay positive and plotting where I’m going when this is all over. Homeschool was a fail this week but I did finish my new Supermomculture.com site, set up my new workspace and deep cleaned my kitchen.  Currently happy hour at the crib. Can’t wait to rock this @suakokobetty outfit again.
  • My 2nd quarantine project is complete! So y’all remember that cute office I had.... well Mr stole it a few years ago even though it has pink accents 😒. My pictures are still on the wall an everything.  Since then, my main office has been the kitchen counter with my laptop. How am I supposed to run a multi-thousand dollar business from the counter? Being a blogger is one thing but having a retail business is another beast. I have a computer in my guest room where I package orders but it was on a small writers desk with no room for papers or anything.  It was getting too hectic. So I switched the room around to make more space to fulfill orders and work. I shopped my basement to put it together. I super excited to have a new space where I can leave my papers and planners. My desk is the Linnmon desk from Ikea. I already had 2 of these tables that are on the other side of the printer for @supermomculture orders. PS: while I’m being productive my kids aren’t 🤷🏾‍♀️
  • Trying not to come out of this self quarantine 50lbs heavier.  The girls and I did a 30 min Tabata and they are now doing hip hop routines on YT.  I wrote a post last year sharing my favorite free home workouts.  Visit the blog and search workouts or watch my stories for swipe up.  Doing my best to stay busy and being productive cuz after cleaning my kitchen, I haven’t done anything else 😩. Outfit from @jdowfitness #homeworkouts
  • Speed kitchen deep clean! Taking this time to get my home in order. I used several products including my favorite stainless steel wipes. I used a mixture of warm water and vinegar to clean the floors by hand. There are a lot of ways you can disinfect with what you have at home since everyone finally decided to clean up now. I’m also counting this as my home workout 🏋🏾‍♀️
  • Let’s play a game! Since 2020 is turning out to be the “Ghetto” I want to know what you do that would be considered “Ghetto”. I know we act all bougie on the internets but I know there’s something we do that we know would be frowned upon. Set yourself free and tell me in the comments.  I may pick a winner who makes me clutch my pearls... maybe a @supermomculture tee 🤔. I’ll leave mine in the comments 😆 📷 @kaynjames
  • Channeling my inner Supermom powers during this time to clean this house from top to bottom. I’m starting with a kitchen deep clean. Then it’s on to bathrooms, the girl’s rooms, closets and my workspace.  I’ve ordered Mr to paint the guest room, y’all know how that goes 🙄. It’s the last room in the house that hasn’t been painted. Get ready for a lot of home content since I’m stuck here. Let me know what y’all want to see. #springcleaning #heytrinashome
  • Working for yourself can be overwhelming during tax time.  #AD Instead of being stressed out, I headed to @HRblock to meet with one of their tax experts.  My tax pro Darshna was awesome.  She answered all of my questions and gave me some great tips for my personal and business taxes. I plan to use my refund to invest back into my business (and maybe a few pairs of shoes). Save time with convenient hours and get upfront pricing.  Use code 69539 to save on your tax preparation fees at @hrblock . #betterwithblock
  • It's our 1 year anniversary of Supermom Culture.  One year ago I pushed post with a slight panic attack to share a tee and a hoodie that I didn't know if anyone would like, let alone buy.  When they say you have to do it scared, it’s true! I've always wanted to create something fun, cool and comfortable that represents what I stand for.  Thousands of shirts sold and we’re just getting started! I want to thank you guys for all the support via likes, follows, tags and photo shoots.  This movement wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for you guys. There is more to come for Supermom Culture to celebrate you guys!  Be on the lookout for new drops and live events! Black on Black is now back in stock!  To celebrate I have a special deal when you buy one, get a tee 25% off! If you don’t have one, go ahead and save on the black and white tee. No code needed!

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?
