  • Tonight is the season finale of @davidmakesman and I’m on the edge of my seat.  Another important women in David’s life is his gifted class teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. She sees the potential in David and continues to guide him as much as she can at school, his safe haven. Teachers, coaches and mentors  play in important role in our children’s lives.  Peyton has a teacher that looks like her this year and Harper thinks her teachers are family members. I think most of us have a teacher that stands out whether it be elementary or college. I still remember the first teacher that I felt really cared about me.  Sometimes that’s all it takes. 
Make sure you tune in to David Makes Man or catch up on @owntv 9/8c #davidmakesman #ad
  • It was all good just a week ago. I brought in my birthday in Aruba for my friends wedding last week.  It’s been hard to get back to reality. I realized I’m in desperate need of a time management makeover but I don’t have the time 😩. Now that I’ve started @supermomculture, trying to balance that, life and blog hasn’t been easy.  If you have some time management hacks, please share 😘
  • Let me introduce you to the new learning playground, @tumblesjohnscreek. Harper celebrated her birthday there a couple of weeks ago. Tumbles has Indoor zipline, rock wall, play ground & STEM classes and more! They are the unicorn of indoor playgrounds! Sharing details from our experience on the blog.  They also have a Halloween parents night out.  Details on the blog or visit

  • Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad
  • Thanking God for another year! These last 6 months have been rough but I thank God for keeping me covered. Celebrate with my by taking advantage of the @supermomculture hoodie sale! Ends tonight. #libraseason
  • Felt cute, might delete later (jokes). Lol 😂 I’ve been wanting to use that caption. Hello from #Aruba 👋🏾. Having a ball celebrating my friend nuptials. This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.
  • Your girls got a birthday coming up (10/8)! I’ll be celebrating in a tropical location this wknd for my friends wedding. I won’t need a hoodie but you guys will 😆. My birthday gift to you is a sale on @supermomculture hoodies! Link in profile.  I’m wearing a medium in the hoodie (unisex sizes)! ♎️ #supermomculture Wearing @thelipbar Hot Mama
  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well! Tune in to the powerful series #DavidMakesMan on OWN on Wednesdays at 9/8c #AD
  • I used 3 packs of @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair in Suga Mama and one pack of exotic curl in coffee (said wrong in video). My edges can’t handle single braids so cornrows it is! #latchedandhooked #bohobraids

DIY Closet Dividers for Back to School

August 6, 2016

School starts Monday!  I’m trying my best to get prepared this weekend.  This weekend will be filled with grocery shopping, ironing and washing hair.  I’m a true believer in laying out school clothes for the week on Sundays.  That way there are no disagreements about what Peyton wants to wear at 6am.   Trust me, it makes life in the mornings a whole lot easier.  This year, I decided…

DIY Outdoor Drop Cloth Curtains

July 1, 2016

July is here and I’m still finishing up my Mommy Oasis. I’ve been working hard trying to get everything just right. Because I have (nosey) neighbors that are pretty close, I wanted to add curtains to my porch. After some window shopping, I learned that outdoor panels, especially the amount and size I need, are not cheap. I have 8 large windows to cover. At $50 to $100…

Can you believe Easter is next Sunday?  Just like every other holiday, I’m unprepared.  I haven’t even finalized Easter Sunday outfits.  Jesus is the reason for the season, but I still want to give Peyton and Harper as little basket.  During one of my recent Dollar Tree runs, I discovered they had cutest Easter items.  Instead of putting it off, I went ahead and picked up some items for…

DIY Baby Boyfriend Jeans {Video}

February 24, 2016

Every person should own a pair of boyfriend jeans.  Even the little ones.  I received so many comments on Harper’s little jeans in her newborn pictures (HERE) about her little jeans.  People are shocked when I tell them I made them that way.  It’s so easy!  I decided I would revisit this DIY with a video.  Once you see how I did it, everyone in your house will…

It’s finally done!  Well, as done as it’s going to get.  Plus I’m out of coins.  I’m so happy that Mister has been the perfect husband and got everything completed before Harper arrives.  Baby Harper’s modern teal nursery is ready for her arrival.  I don’t know why, but I knew I wanted to use the color teal. Remember my inspiration rooms HERE?  I took some inspiration from every…
