• Yesterday I laid around watching HGTV and thought about how dreams can become reality. I still can’t believe this is my bathroom. God blessed us with a new bathroom via a leak. It was stressful and we still had to come out of pocket but here we are! Dreams are possible with faith, hard work and perseverance. A lot of us started with nothing but here we are.  Don’t give up. Once I get my life together I plan on producing some of the content I promised y’all. #heytrinashome #babyshopahome #bathroomremodel
  • This pretty little lady has her first science fair next week! She did a fun experiment that I’ll share once’s it’s complete. I’ve taken on the role as creative director. That means her display is going to be doing the most. I remember how bad my projects looked when I was little because I had to do everything by myself. This is my chance to redeem myself 😆. How involved do you get in your child’s projects? Links to this look on the blog (in profile).
  • I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

  • Happy Love week! Make sure you show love to your girls this week! Linked up with these beautiful ladies for some #galentines love! My dress was $13 from H&M

Luv + Learn Your Hair with Taren Guy

November 15, 2013

Sunday evening, YouTube superstar & natural hair diva, Taren Guy brought her Luv & Learn Your Hair tour to Atlanta.  Luv & Learn Your Hair tour is to help encourage women to learn to love THEIR hair!  There was a line a block long of natural hair enthusiasts waiting to get into the event.   The Atlanta Luv & Learn Your Hair event was sponsored by Carol’s Daughter and Hairfinity.

Taren is stunning!  You can see why she has over 17 million YouTube views! 

Taren brought an expert panel consisting of Carol’s Daughter Founder, Lisa Price, Philly from Jam Poet, Robin Groover, owner of Too Groovy Salon, and Ebony of EClark6.  Each panelist talked about their natural hair journey.  I was surprised to learn that Lisa Price, the founder of Carol’s Daughter has been natural for over 30 years (even though she looks no older than 30, maybe she was a baby).
During the event they did a live Big Chop!  Big Chop means to cut all your hair down to the root!  This is a big deal!  To see it happen live was very inspiring.  This brave women got all her hair cut off on stage in front of hundreds of women!  I would have been thinking to myself, I gotta go to work in the morning and I have no hair!  But she was so excited to start this new journey in her life and she looked great!

I went super casual to the event wearing my Wu-Tang tee with a utility jacket.
The event was very inspiring.  While we all have our hair crushes like Taren and Lexi with the Curls, we have to learn to embrace the hair we have on our head.  I will never have either one of these ladies hair.  It’s not a bad thing, I just have to embrace the hair I have and learn what works best for me.  What works best for my busy schedule and limited hair combing time is wearing my extensions.  I can get up and go and look somewhat put together.  
Have you learned to love your hair?  Taren’s Luv & Learn Your Hair tour is still going on.  Check here for next stops.
