• Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container.

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

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!
