• The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • 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.

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?
