• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

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!
