• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired. Links to what I’m wearing in profile. #momstyle
  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

When I Grow Up #KidsDreamingBig

February 23, 2015

We all have fond memories of early beauty and style chats with our mothers, grandmothers or aunties. My mom has always dressed to the nines wherever she went. Her looks were always complete, from head to toe. I remember noticing that my mom was always the best-dressed person everywhere she went and the impression she left.   She was my first beauty and style role model.  I wanted to be like her when I grew up.  I hope to make the same positive impression on Peyton.

I know that mommy and me dressing can be mad corny but Peyton loves it.  Ok, I love it.  Peyton always compares something she has to what I have.  That tells me that she is paying attention to what her mommy wears.  Not only does she pay attention to the things I wear, but what I say.  I do my best to make sure to say positive things when Peyton is around.  I’m hoping that she will be able to reflect on these moments when she grows up.

For a four year old, Peyton talks a lot about what she wants to be when she grows up.  African Pride Dream Kids is encouraging young girls grades 3-5 to pursue their dreams of what they want to be when they grow up with the Kids Dreaming Big scholarship contest!  In partnership with fred’s Super Dollar, Dream Kids “Kids Dreaming Big” scholarship will award $3000 worth of scholarships.  Contest will end on March 15, 2015.  Click HERE for details.  African Pride Dream Kids and fred’s will also host a meet & greet with Cynthia Bailey and one of our lucky scholarship winners on Saturday, April 4th in Tunica, Mississippi.

    So sweet! I love that you and P have such an amazing bond; it’s such a blessing and she will look back and appreciate it so much when she gets older. Keep doing your thing, both of you. Great post and great award!

    Happy Wednesday, Trina 🙂 I know Peyton will cherish all of the memories created from putting together these amazing ‘mommy & me’ looks. Perhaps, she will carry on the tradition with her children one day.
