• I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

  • Y’all! This is my baby! How did this happen?! She’ll be 10 in July (going on 17). She swears she’s already a teenager and should get a phone. No ma’am! Stay my baby 😓. Also, get into this blazer tho! Link in profile. #fashionkids

Cancun Momcation: What I Wore

January 28, 2020

Your girl just returned from 4 days in Cancun, Mexico! This is my first Cancun trip. I’ve been to Mexico once for my job like 15 years ago that consisted of crossing over the border by car from Laredo, TX to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. That didn’t really count. I was invited as a speaker for the Mom Redefined MOMents in Paradise retreat. I thought I would share what I wore since that is what always stumps people when they are traveling.

We wore shades of pink and blush for the Babies X Bellinis live podcast. If you don’t listen to Babies and Bellinis already, you should. All things motherhood unfiltered and hilarious!

Off the shoulder top, Suakoko | Shorts, BCBG Generation | Hair, Latched + Hooked

Dress, Fashionova (sale)

Bikini top and bottom, Target | Kimono, Suakoko Betty

Dress, ASOS ($20) | Shoes, H+M (old)

Sorry for the blurry pics, but I wanted to document these moments of getting dressed before I revert to my hoodie and sweats uniform.

Cancun doesn’t owe me a thing! My turn-up mom crew Kacey, Meka, and Ebony also participated. Anytime two or more of us are together, it’s going to be a good time. The weekend was filled with all the attendees pouring into each other, ensuring each other we are Supermoms and of course party time. My husband commented that he didn’t see anything but partying… Yes, sir, we did! When you don’t have kids to tend to around the clock, the energy levels are through the roof… until you get back home of course.

I’ll share more about the trip, resort and Cancun nightlife in another post. I hope these looks help you with vacay inspiration for your future trips. I also encourage you to take a momcation if you’ve never been. You will feel like your old self again.
