• 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.
  • I want to giveaway one Supermom hoodie and monthly planner to a mom that has big goals for 2020!

  • 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.

It’s holiday party time! The invites are rolling in left and right. Between school, church, and dinner parties with friends, my schedule is OFF THE CHAIN. I may not have outfits to wear to all my parties but my skin will be on point! Using NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum and a few other tips, my face is in check and ready for the holiday parties. Here is how I prep my skin for holiday party season.

  • Drink (water). Staying hydrated in the winter is important in general. This is the time to take advantage of water’s natural beauty benefits.

  • Be Gentle. The cold weather will make your skin drier than normal. Using a gentle cleanser will help you to clean your face and not dry out your skin.
  • Exfoliate. Using an exfoliating brush or pad will help you remove dead dry skin. If you wear foundation, exfoliating is a must.

  • Serum. Invest in a good serum. I’ve started using NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum to improve the appearance of my skin. NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum helps to volumize, tone and hydrate my skin. Just a few drop prepares my face to look radiant for my next event.

  • Rest. This time of year is busy but do your best to get as much rest as possible so people can’t say “You look tired”. That may mean trying to fit in a disco nap before your next holiday event.

Thanks to NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum I’m ready to put my best face forward for my upcoming events. This triple threat serum helps to volumize skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles. SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum also tones the skin for enhanced clarity. Last but not least, SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum hydrates the face with low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid for a smooth finish.

Making sure your skin is in formation before you add any makeup is the key to a flawless holiday face. You have to have a great foundation to build on and NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum has helped me get there. Learn more about NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum HERE.

I hope these tips will help you (and your face) have the best holiday party season ever! How do you prepare for holiday party season?
