  • 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
  • Obsessed with Harper’s Enchanted Fourest theme! Thx @swankyroseevents for the set up! I DIY’d the grass letters.  Details on how I did them on the blog.  Super easy but costly 😩. Link in profile

DIY Rainbow Hair for Curly Girls inspired by Sunny Day

April 17, 2018

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

When I was little, I would spend all day combing my dolls hair. Thinking back during to that time, I see how something as simple as combing dolls hair can have an impact on your life. Hairstylists are lifesavers. I’m sure if you ask any of them about their childhood, I’m sure it included combing dolls hair. I even thought I wanted to be a hairstylist. The new series, Sunny Day on Nick Jr., encourages individuality, entrepreneurship and problem-solving skills for our girls. Inspired by salon-owning Sunny, I thought it would be fun for the girls to fun DIY to express their individuality with hair. You can watch Sunny Day Weekdays on Nickelodeon.

Make sure you check out Sunny, a hairstylist and salon-owning entrepreneur, in the brand-new Nick Jr. cartoon series, Sunny Day! With the help of her best friends, Blair, Rox, and her adorable pup, Doodle, Sunny can untangle any problem that comes her way. She always uses her styling skills in creative ways to be a true leader and inspires individuality in every preschooler.

Peyton has been asking for colored hair for the longest. I’ve been telling her no because it would be more work for me because I would have to wash it out and do her hair again. Who got time for that? Fun hair options like clip-ins for our curly girls are limited so I thought we would make our own easy to use option.

Watch the cute video below to see how the girls put this hair together. Details are below.

We used colored Marley hair and a hair comb. You can find the hair at most beauty supply stores or search on line.

Slip a small piece of the hair in the comb and tie in a knot.

Repeat and tie to comb.

Continue until the comb is full. Fill free to add additional colors.

Harper loves her fun new look. You can’t tell her nothing. The best part is that I don’t have to wash her or anything. I just take the comb out. You can also make tie the hair on to a hair tie in the same manner for quick and fun ponytails.

Peyton is currently wearing braids but she added some bright rubber bands from the dollar store for a fun and easy look inspired by Sunny Day. For more Sunny Day inspired styles check out the Style Files on Nickjr.com/sunny-day.

We hope you enjoyed our easy and fun DIY!

Have a Sunny Day!
