• No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

  • Spring is here but no spring break 😓. Just over here washing my hands, trying to stay positive and plotting where I’m going when this is all over. Homeschool was a fail this week but I did finish my new Supermomculture.com site, set up my new workspace and deep cleaned my kitchen.  Currently happy hour at the crib. Can’t wait to rock this @suakokobetty outfit again.
  • My 2nd quarantine project is complete! So y’all remember that cute office I had.... well Mr stole it a few years ago even though it has pink accents 😒. My pictures are still on the wall an everything.  Since then, my main office has been the kitchen counter with my laptop. How am I supposed to run a multi-thousand dollar business from the counter? Being a blogger is one thing but having a retail business is another beast. I have a computer in my guest room where I package orders but it was on a small writers desk with no room for papers or anything.  It was getting too hectic. So I switched the room around to make more space to fulfill orders and work. I shopped my basement to put it together. I super excited to have a new space where I can leave my papers and planners. My desk is the Linnmon desk from Ikea. I already had 2 of these tables that are on the other side of the printer for @supermomculture orders. PS: while I’m being productive my kids aren’t 🤷🏾‍♀️ #heytrinashome
  • Trying not to come out of this self quarantine 50lbs heavier.  The girls and I did a 30 min Tabata and they are now doing hip hop routines on YT.  I wrote a post last year sharing my favorite free home workouts.  Visit the blog and search workouts or watch my stories for swipe up.  Doing my best to stay busy and being productive cuz after cleaning my kitchen, I haven’t done anything else 😩. Outfit from @jdowfitness #homeworkouts

My Current Nighttime Skincare Routine

May 2, 2018

It’s been a while since I shared my beauty routines. My skin has been LIT lately and I’ve been getting a lot of complements (Thank You!). If I didn’t take some time to improve my selfcare and actually looked into finding products that benefitted my skin type instead of just buying anything I see, I feel as if I would still be in square one. If you are like me and you want to take your skincare routine more seriously, click here. It’s best to read a bit about products before you buy them, just so you have an idea of their benefits and how it can help your skin. Good luck! I usually share product reviews here and there but I thought it was well over due for me to share my current routine. Here you go!

First I start by removing my makeup if I’m wearing any. My favorite product to use for a full face is Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser. You can learn more about it HERE.

After my makeup is removed, I wash my face using Kiehl’s Ultra Face Cleanser. It does what it says and doesn’t over-dry my face while leaving it feeling clean. This small tube is $10 and worth a try. You can find more info HERE.

After my face is clean, I go straight for the eye creams. I alternate between two different creams. I use my SKII eye cream (in first picture) on my “off” days. Those are the days when I don’t wear makeup or need a little more moisture under my eyes. It’s pretty pricey so I try to use as needed. I’m also always on the lookout for a budget-friendly eye cream (gel) and Vichy Aqualia Thermal has been it. It works great to hydrate your under eye for under $30. Learn more HERE.

I love me some serums. They work overtime to help your skin even look more beautiful. I’m currently using NeoStrata Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum. I’ve noticed my pores getting a little bigger so I’m trying to do what I can to hold them back. This definitely makes my skin feel smooth and more “plump”. You can learn more about it HERE.

I’m almost done. I’ve been using the Olay Regenerist Luminous overnight mask all winter long. This olay night mask helpt to keep my winter dry skin in check. Any night that I did not use the mask, my skin was dry and flaky. This jar is huge and a little goes a long way. Of using it for several months, I’m probably half way through it. You can find more info HERE.

I end my routine with using the Laneige lip sleeping mask. I have very dry lips and they peel. Laneige helps to keep that in check. It’s very thick and a little goes a long way. When I get up in the morning, dry skin easily comes off with a towel and warm water. Find more info HERE.

I know this seems like a lot of steps but it’s worth it when your skin is looking it’s best. I’ll be turning 40 soon so I’m doing my best to keep my skin on track. Depending on how much time I have and my skin’s needs, I use my Clarisonic Mia and some cheap Target buff pads on a regular basis to remove dead skin. If you don’t have a Clarisonic, I suggest you invest in one.

My beauty routine changes throughout the year based on my skin care needs and the various products out there on the market, Waterlilies And Company offer Natural Cosmetics so I’m tempted to give them a try someday. I would also like to note that I’ve been drinking more water and eating lots of vegetables. That does wonders for your skin by itself. Share your favorite nighttime products in the comments.

    I’ve been using the Olay Regenerist Luminous mask for a long time. Really great product! Hope other skincare products you recommend are as good as it, cause I want to try them all!
