• After going to Detroit for 24hrs last wknd, coming back to get the girls ready for school on Monday, Harper’s Taco Tuesday birthday celebration and shipping orders, mama tide (tired). Why must I always do the most?! I guess I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t 😆. I can’t wait till the weather cools off so I can rock my @supermomculture sweats full time 🙌🏾. Grab your hoodie & matching sweats cuz y’all know when the temp drops they’re going fly 💫🦸🏾‍♀️ Link in profile
  • Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes. Harper had a great action packed day. She still has a big birthday party next week with her school friends. I hope this doesn’t turn her into one of those Birthday people who celebrate their birthdays all month long 😂. If that’s you raise your hand 🙋🏾‍♀️ 😂.
  • Happy 4th Birthday Harper Mae! Doesn’t it seem like I just had her?! Harper is such a joy.  She’s the funniest little person I know.  She’ll be sweet but will go off in a second if you do something wrong.  She will even go off on someone for her big sister (and Peyton let’s her 😆). She loves music and drawing. We enjoy watching her grow daily. I’m excited to watch this little girl shine! She requested Taco Tuesday dinner tonight and her party is next weekend. So the party will continue.
  • My squad secured new bags! We’re rocking our new @zenkoleather pink croc bags. #Zenko makes quality leather bags for the whole family, including the man in your life. Don’t tell Peyton or Harper buy I may borrow their bags when I need something small 🤫. I’m always happy to share a fashion moment with my girls.  Details on our outfits on the blog.
  • I keep forgetting I have a beautiful bathroom to take mirror selfies in 😆. I wanted to share these #targetstyle sweats that match my neon green @supermomculture hoodie. Couple PSAs. Large neon hoodies are sold out. Denim hats and beanies (only a few left) are in stock. Also, check the size charts.  Hoodies and tees are unisex which means men sizes.  I’m wearing a medium in this pic. I normally wear a large in women’s for my 👀. All sales are final. If I do returns I would have to charge shipping both ways. I know y’all don’t want that. If you have questions please leave them below or dm. Thanks for all the love and support #supermomculture
  • Happy Birthday to my mom in heaven. Last year we celebrated her 80th birthday. I remember her saying she wanted to do it big because she never had a party and she said this might be the last one. I’m grateful that she was able to witness how much everyone loved and adored her.  This was the last time I physically saw her. We flew back the next day. I miss her so much!
  • It’s back to school time and this #TBT pic by @creativesoulphoto has been in heavy rotation. I think Peyton was like 3 or 4.  I wasn’t even pregnant with Harper. Still one of my faves. #creativesoulphoto #creativesoul
  • Mood when all kids have went back to school! Why does it feel like they are only there for 45 mins before you have to head back to pick them up 🤷🏾‍♀️. #Supermom 🧢 are back in stock.  Claim yours before they are gone! Link in profile.
  • I’m taking my talents international with @momredefined #momentinparadise in Cancun, Mexico in January! We’ll get to relax, have sessions, drink & eat...w/o kids!  We deserve this! I’ve met most of these women and person and we’re all a good time 😆. Grab your mommy friends or roll solo (we won’t bite) come on! Reserve your spot with $75 (deposit) before Sept 15 use code TRINA75. Link in profile. Who’s rolling out with me? 🙋🏾‍♀️ 🍹 ✈️ ☀️
  • I went dressed as a zebra to hang with my friend and fave designer @suakokobetty at @29rooms. I’ve been on the move so much it was cool to just hang out. I’ve been going hard but I have a feeling something amazing is on the horizon. Until it happens you can find me cleaning my house and up to my eyeballs in laundry. 💫 Outfit was $10 at HM

How to Always Be Ready to Go + Look Fab!

January 17, 2013
Have you ever had an event or party to go to and you just couldn’t pull it together?  You end up not going because you can’t find anything to wear or your hair is a mess!  As a mommy on the go, I  know all about it!  I wanted to share my tips on how I am how manage to pull it together to head out to special events.

1.  You should always have something to wear!  Invest in a figure flattering LBD (little black dress)!  No thinking is involved with a dress!  I love LBD’s that are not so form fitting.  If I am bloated or gained a few pounds they always look nice!  You can change them up your LBD with accessories jackets, scarves and shoes!

2.  Keep your hair did!  I don’t know if y’all have noticed but I don’t like doing my hair!  Even though I love my natural hair, it takes time for me to manage.  When my schedule is packed and I have to deal with Peyton’s hair, my hair is left behind.  My go to style is a weave or extensions.  All I have to do is brush and go!  If I have a few minutes to spare I will throw in a few loose curls. When I am not wearing a weave I am more than likely rocking a high bun!  This no fuss hair do takes no time!   Throw on some fabulous earrings and I am good to go!  I am not saying get a weave or wear a bun but plan you hair style ahead of time or prep the night before.

3.  Stick with your makeup routine.  If you just got some new makeup items, try them out ahead of time.  Nothing worse than putting on something and it wasn’t what you thought or trying to put on lashes and getting glue all over your face!  Now you have to start over!  Stick with what you know!

4.  Lay out your clothes for the week.  Every weekend I take about 30 minutes and head into my closet to put together outfits.  Try on the outfits to make sure you like the fit and look.  Make sure everything is washed up before the week starts.  This ensures that your “good” jeans are not dirty when you want to wear them.

5.  Buy some nails!  Kiss Nail Dress and Impress Nails are my solution for not having time to get my nails done.  On only takes a few minutes to put these bad boys on!  No drying time required.

This may seem like this is a lot of work but trust me, it take less time to plan ahead than standing and staring at the clothes in your closet for an hour every time you have some where to be.  When you are not in a rush it is actually easier to put together an outfit.  I don’t want to hear any excuses anymore!  What do you do to make sure you are ready to go?  Do you pick out your clothes right before you go out?

    I need to take your suggestion and throw some quick nails on before events..I HATE wearing them in my day to day life..but it would really spice up my look for big events etc.

    Thanks for sharing your tips–I was just gifted a nice LBD for Christmas. I look forward to wearing it soon. Also, I’m with you on the convenience of a weave–love my kinkycurls but it’s time to put them to rest while I rock the ease of weave. .LOL
