• I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • 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.

New Dining Room, Who this?

January 30, 2020

I’ve been in my home for 5 years and I’m finally 90% done decorating it. I’ve been on the slow-boop with decorating because when we first moved in, I was pregnant with Harper and we remodeled our kitchen completely. Talk about money depleted. I was just happy to have a kitchen I wasn’t too worried about the rest of my house. That was until I decided to host Thanksgiving with 10 guests staying at my house. I made a major list and we just knocked each item out. I’m happy to share with you my beautiful space.

Before! Looks like solitary confinement.

Wall color Paper White, Sherwin Williams | Table, Ashley Homestore | Rug, Amazon | Curtains, Target | Bay curtain rod, Amazon | White vase, Hobby Lobby | Plates and chargers, Dollar Tree | Cabinet, Ashley Homestore | Chandelier, Amazon | Painting, Ross

I’m so happy with this space. I may not keep the settings on the table. Now that I have a cabinet in the space, I can store them there. I also need to style the top of the cabinet. I don’t want it cluttered because these will be the space where we’ll keep desserts for parties. The painting is also too high so it needs to be moved down. Other than those few things, it’s perfect.

A few tips when you’re working on space. Paint, rugs, and curtains are game-changers. I suggest searching Amazon for the size and style you are looking for. I’ve ordered 3 large area rugs from Amazon and love each one of them. If you need long curtains for a steal, head to Target! They have a great selection in long curtains. Mine curtains are 108 inches long. If you have a bay window, buy the rod that I linked. Super easy to install (long as you mark the holes correctly) and cheap.

My goal for my home is to make it look like a magazine but lived in. I think I have accomplished that. If you’re new around here check out my new master bathroom (HERE) and living room makeover (HERE). Any spaces in your home you’re dying to makeover?

    Wow! Soooo pretty! I love that mixture of seating at the table with both chairs and a bench. Very modern. The light fixture is life… it’s all beautiful. I want an entirely new apartment LOL! But I really want to make over our bedroom.
