• The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • 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.

  • *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.

Happy Hour Thrifting! Not Gonna Believe What I Got!

January 6, 2012

Last night Peyton and I decided check out Happy Hour Thrifing with Karen of Two Stylish Kays and Kerri from Virtuous Styls.  These jazzy ladies are experts in thrifting and you can use their styling service to assist you while you shop or just shop for you completely!

Kerrie found this cute, and I think new Mango dress for $2.50!  This line is currently sold at JC Pennys!

 I found this wonderful black beaded jacket for $8.50.  I know that is expensive in a thrift store but these are going for $200 or $300 and more and the quality is not close to this.

I found this Hermes scarf for $2!  Bah- nan- nas!  This scarf retails for $400!  Now I just need to find a bag in a thrift store.

I got a 3 more dresses and a navy blazer.  I spent a total of $25!  What a great way to start off the year!  I am still not sold on thrifting for Peyton unless it has the tags.  I know…  But at least I find great deals for her.

Have you found any great thrift finds lately?

    You got some really great pieces. Your reaction to finding the scarf was priceless :-). I had fun. I got two dresses and one bolero sweater for under $10. I can’t wait to go again when I don’t have to rush. As a first timer, I definitely suggest that you make sure to take your time when you go. You don’t want to miss out on any great finds.

    Between the CL’s and the Hermes scarf, you’ve just about sold me on going thrifting!

    Consignment shops are really great for finding clothes for kids. Consignment shops require that all clothing is washed or dry cleaned before it is even placed on the sales floor.

    I haven’t really been to any thrift stores since I had JJ, but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things and rack up some fab finds!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that is not an authentic Hermes scarf. Still a very pretty one though. Check this out in the future, it helped me! 🙂 http://sassyme.org/2011/12/how-to-spot-fake-hermes-scarf/
