  • Head over to @supermomculture. I want to help two moms that need a little help during this time. ➡️ @supermomculture
  • 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

Live Better: Tips for Cold & Flu Season

November 30, 2017

This post is sponsored by CVS. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Welcome to cold and flu season! This is the time of year when moms’ shirts double as tissues. Disgusting but we do what we gotta do right? We do our best to keep our kids protected but being around other kids with runny noses and coughs all day, a cold is bound to make its way into your home. Harper has already been under the weather once this season. Luckily no one else in the house caught the bug (knocks on wood). I’m excited to partner with CVS and their new exclusive brand, Live Better and share my tips to help you through cold and flu season.

  1. Check expiration dates. Active ingredients in medicine expire so you have to check. You don’t want to discover that your medicine is expired when your child has a fever or a cough in the middle of the night.
  2.  Stock up on medicine. Once you clean out your medicine cabinet, head to CVS and stock up on Live Better products exclusively for CVS. The Live Better collection includes cold/ cough relief and immunity support for both kids and adults. The brand contains no alcohol, artificial preservatives, dyes or flavors.

  1. Wash your hands often. Encourage your family to wash their hands as much as possible. Wash you hand before meals, snacks, when you enter your home and before you leave. Keep plenty of hand sanitizer on hand with soap and water are not available.
  2. Create a medicine station. Collect your Live Better medicines, thermometers, and medicine syringe for young kids and place them in a bin or basket. This will help you find everything you need when a cough breaks out in the middle of the night. Nothing worse than looking for a thermometer at 3am.

  1. Wipe down toys regularly. Playdates can be fun but kids leave their mark everywhere.   Do your best to disinfect toys asap.
  2. Layer on the clothes. Temperatures can vary throughout the day. Dressing your child in layers allows them to stay warm and remove items if it gets too warm. I suggest adding hoodies, sweatshirts, and flannels to their wardrobe.  Don’t forget your hat!
  3. Pay attention symptoms. Watching out for cold and flu symptoms early on can help speed up recovery times and keep others from catching it. When you hear a cough or a raspy voice start checking for symptoms. Using products like Live Better that help the body heal naturally can give you or your child early relief.

  1. Use disposable cups. Using disposable cups at home and away will keep you or your child from spreading germs or getting them.
  2. Stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water is great for your body in general. Staying hydrated helps rid your body of toxins and aids in recovery.
  3. Get some rest. I’ve learned the hard ways that lack of sleep makes it easier for you to get sick. I’m speaking from experience but I’m sure there’s some scientific research that goes along with this. Sleep does help you build a strong immune system.

Please keep in mind that I am not a doctor or nurse, I’m just a mom with two kids and one of them happens to get sick pretty often. Having medicine like Live Better on hand makes it easier for me to nurse my family back to health. I love that these products are free of alcohol, artificial preservatives, and gluten. Debut products from the CVS Live Better line include children’s cough syrup for 12 months and up, adult cough & throat daytime relief, and adult immunity & melatonin. More Live Better products coming soon to CVS for both kids and adults.

I hope these tips will help make cold and flu season easier for you and your family. You can find Live Better products conveniently at you local CVS and learn more HERE.

    I would love the children’s cough syrup! I have two little girls who have weak immune systems due to prematurity so I am always looking for good medicine brands

    Hey Harper. Trina I am all over these. These kids have been coughing over here and the little guy has been in and out of fever. Sent the hubs to grab some of the Live Better cough syrup from CVS. Thanks for sharing this brand 🙂
