  • Every time I attend event like @theprevailingwoman Conf, and share it in my stories, I get dozens of... I should have went. What’s keeping you from going? Are you scared? Too shy (or introverted 😒) ? Money? I’m addressing all of this and how to get the most out of a women’s empowerment event. Link in profile. #sheprevails
  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday

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 🙂
