  • 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!

Breaking Out of A Funk

January 16, 2018

I hope you all had a great Dr. Martin Luther King weekend.  I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys much since the New Year.  I planned on hitting the ground running for 2018 but that didn’t happen.  I don’t know what happened but I’ve been in a deep funk since Christmas.  I haven’t been wanting to get dressed or leave the house.  I did go to the gym only because I felt it was acceptable to look like I just rolled out of the bed.  I’ve managed to look presentable about 3 times since Christmas.  I haven’t taken pictures of me or the girls since before Christmas.  This was a feeling that I wasn’t used to.  I’m usually always ON.  I’m thinking that I was just burned out. This phase has encouraged me to change some of my plans for 2018.

This “funk” has taught me that I need to start putting me first more often.  I’m sure we can all relate to being everything to everybody.  I was pretty good on asking for help but when the holidays came, no one was available to help.  I tried to do everything in addition to all the content I had to post.  I had no downtime.  Every waking minute was spent doing something for someone else.  I was tired.

In the words of our auntie Maxine Waters, I’m reclaiming my time.  I finally got my hair and nails done.  That did so much for my spirit you just don’t know.  I went out to an event this past Sunday with some of my blogging friends and didn’t have to rush to get home.  It felt good.

After this funk, I’ve decided that I’m going to focus more on content for us moms to help us reclaim our time. Have you ever felt like this?  What helped you come out of the “funk”.  Please share topics you would like to discuss on the blog in the comments.

    Hey girl. So glad to see you back! I feel like the gray cloud on my end is finally lifting. You got this for 2018! Trina first.

    You are speaking to my soul right now! I’m so happy to see that you’ve broken out of it. The little things like getting your hair and nails done can do wonders. I know exactly what you feel like. You are my friend in my head!!! Stay strong, your post helped me realize I am not alone! One day we’ll have to meet up 🙂

    This article was exactly what I needed to hear at this very moment! I can echo a lot of what Nakia mentioned above. I have been in a funk during the holidays as well, I usually have my mom to help me with the many events, shopping, and hosting. She passed suddenly in September so I have been on autopilot since Thanksgiving! I knew I was in a funk because I too have not done much since the holidays and it’s usually the best time for me to share precious moments with my little one and other family members. I have felt really low, but I did manage to get a new haircut for the new year and it has done great things for my mood!

    It’s always a struggle. I’m learning to be easy on myself. This week I was just trying to get in a groove and make some things happen. I think the key is rolling with the punches knowing that some weeks we will kill it and others we’ll be lucky to make it out of bed.
