• 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. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • 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.

  • I’m ready for #backtoschool! New merch available for @supermomculture today! I call this my Momiana hoodie in neon green! I also have baseball caps, beanies, gray tees and sweats! Carpool will never be the same! Link in profile! #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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
  • THANK YOU! You guys are awesome! All the kind words and cheers are appreciated. I was just talking about doing things when you’re scared.  I was low key scared to change my blog that’s why I put it of for years. I did it and I lived.  Don’t let fear stop you. Thank you guys for rocking with me over the years and hello to the new folks!

Nars Fall Beauty Day at Nordstrom

August 14, 2013

On Saturday, a few of my blogging buddies and myself hosted a day of beauty featuring Nars fall collection at Nordstrom at Perimeter Mall.  Jessica from Glamazons Blog, Eboni from Fashionista Next Door, Danielle from the Style and Beauty Doctor and Lexi with the Curls all sported our favorite fall look using Nars cosmetics.

All of our guest were treated to a mini makeover using one of the five blogger inspired looks.  My “Baby Shopaholic” look featured a smokey eye using the Nars Empire Shadow.

Sorry for this horrible picture.  Told y’all my camera was tripping but this is the only one you can see my outfit.  My jumpsuit is from JustFab when they first launched dress collection.  Unfortunately it is sold out now.  I hope they restock more dresses and outfits like this.

Glamazons” look features a Cat Eye with a Jungle Red lipstick.

“Fashionista Next Door” look featured neutral eye with  Nars Schiap lipstick.

Style and Beauty Doctor” look featured a vamp lip using Nars Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

“Lexi with the Curls” look was a soft natural using Abbey Road Larger Than Life Eye Pencil.
We had such a fabulous time!  A ton of Atlanta bloggers came out to mingle and get their face painted by Nordstrom makeup artists.  Our guest left looking amazing in the Nars products.  Did you know that Nars has the best blushes ever?  Orgasm and Taj Mahal was the crowd favorite!  Do you use Nars?  What is your favorite item?

    I don’t own any Nars at the moment (not in the budget lol) but I definitely have a few things on my wish list. Looks like y’all had a ton of fun 🙂
