• 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.

Denim Events Fashionable Atlanta Madewell Mamanista Spring Fashion

Madewell Challenge Event

April 30, 2012
If you can believe this, I have never shopped at Madewell!  I know I know!  Everyone raves about their denim!  Sunday I attended a Madewell Denimthon hosted by Mattie from Mattieologie.  At the event the Atlanta Style Bloggers got to compete in a style challenge! 
With Host Mattie from Mattieologie
I was out late the night before so I threw on this fedora hat to try and hide my face!  T-shirt is from Forever 21 and skirt is from Old Navy.  I got the necklace from the Apparel Mart Show.

 Mattie is cute as a button in her Madewell outfit.

Bellini’s were served!

 Cupcakes by Cami Cakes were in the building!

 Peyton keep yelling “Cup Cake”!  She ate like 5! They were mini ones… so let’s say she ate like 2.5!

 With Adrienne of Sadiddy Magazine, Jazmine from Fashion Rouge

 Allison of Style Pundit

 Tia from If I were a Brit Girl and Kristen from Lily Kai

With Jessica from My Style Vita

So the fun and games are over!  Time to compete!  We had ONE minute to pull outfits based on the scenarios given.  Who can shop in one minute… well I can, but still!  Once you pulled the outfit you had to dress yourself in THREE minutes!  Bloggers were eliminated after each round.  Since I was participating I need to collect some photos so that post is coming soon!

Do you shop at Madewell?

    Had so much fun! Your styling is IMPECCABLE. And Peyton was so cute as usual – (that yellow bow was everything). My favorite part of your styling was the androgynous look. So chic!
