• It’s been a week y’all! I’m emotionally drained that living while black is a crime.  I have a black husband that takes care of us and provides this beautiful home we live in. I also have to worry if he gets pulled over or “Karen” decides to call the police on him what the outcome would be. Or if it happens to me. Anyway, this weekend I decided I’m going to self care which means cleaning up. Take it easy on yourself. Take a break from social if you have to.  I had to leave IG alone and go to Pinterest.  It’s ok!
  • During these trying times, people have been going above and beyond and we want to thank them. #AD @Hallmark has beautiful cards to help us show our appreciation in a meaningful way. I think we can all agree that our appreciation for teachers is at an all-time high!  I'll be sending this beautiful card to Peyton's 4th-grade teacher.  As hard as homeschooling the last few months were, she was there even after hours to assist parents. Who would you like to send a special thanks to? You can purchase @hallmark cards online or grab a few when you're picking up essentials.  #cardsdomore Link in profile
  • The before doesn’t usually look like this.  Mister (bless his heart) has been cleaning the kitchen more and this is how he puts away the pans.  I didn’t say nothing because I’m not trying to discourage him 😩. I just cleaned it up.  He said it looks much better 😒. Looks like as long as he’s cleaning the kitchen I’ll just tidy up ever couple of days. We were supposed to get a custom system installed in this large corn cabinet but I never got around to it. This will do for now. PS, music stopped but you get the point 😆#quarantinecleaning #kitchenorganization
  • I miss outside 😩! If you know me in person you know I’m a extra-extrovert. Being out with the people shaking hands & kissing babies is what I do!  I kinda miss finding something cute to wear like this @suakokobetty kimono and shorts look. I think I’m turning into an social media introvert. Y’all know how i feel about introverts 😒😂. I don’t post as much as I used because I like the human energy. I sure we will get passed this! How are y’all coping socially? I’ll add a swipe up to my look in my stories.
  • Had to bring Mr. out of retirement to show y’all the new black on black Superdad! Father’s Day is coming and they need this drip. Also BOGO sale going on for Memorial Day wknd. Link in profile. supermomculture.com
  • Glad that’s over 😩. School is out for Quarantine Summer! Not sure what we’re going to do but I’m just happy to not have to log in teams and scan homework! So proud of how Peyton handled these few months.  She picked up a part time job with @supermomculture and got all her work done. In pray they will return in the fall 🙏🏿. 5th grade here we come!
  • I don’t know what today is but it’s always a good day for something with bacon in it! #AD Since every day feels like Blursday, I’m sharing details on my delicious Bacon Bagel sandwich on the blog!  @nationalporkboard wants to help you beat the Blursday blues by sending you some pre-cooked bacon!  Up to a 1000 people across the US will be selected!  Follow @nationalporkboard for details. Head to the blog, link in profile for my #baconforblursday recipe.  Let me know in the comments what’s your favorite dish with bacon?
  • When outside opens back up, I plan to have flawless skin! I have several affordable skincare products to share with you that I recently started using. Video features @pixibeauty @theordinary @versed and more! Book by @funmifetto. Do you have a new fave? Links to everything https://heytrina.com/shop/
  • Motherhood is something I wasn’t sure I wanted.  Look at me now! I was missing my mom today but overall I had a good day. Thank you for all@the love! @supermomculture showed out and I know that was my mom shining down. Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day!
  • For Mother’s Day Sunday my mom would have a new sharp suit laid out and she would have me run around Atlanta looking for a hat to match. I miss my mom so much. I find comfort in knowing that the very best parts of me are because of her. I feel her with me every day. 🌹
  • You guys have held me down this past year! Words of encouragement and supporting @supermomculture. I want to say thank you! I know I’ve been quiet but I’ve been working getting orders out.  Tonight we are going to celebrate US at 8pm on  @supermomculture Live! Grab your drink of choice and join me! #ipartiedatsupermothersday #clubsupermomculture

Inside My Closet

June 17, 2015

I’m slowly checking things off my home bucket list before the new baby arrives.  Peyton’s room (here) and closet (here), my home office (here) and living room are pretty much done.  Well, as done as they are gonna get for now.  My kitchen is close to being complete (update here).  One room that is very important to me is my closet. I was determined to get my closet functioning before baby comes.  We had our closet designed using Elfa from The Container Store.

I decided to “display” some of my bags on a shelf using dividers from Elfa at The Container Store.  I left the handbags that I use the most out of their dust bags.  I left my leather handbags in the dust bags.  I also put my smaller bags in the large basket on the top shelf.

This is my section for dresses and pants.  I thought it would be plenty of room, but as you can see, I’ve managed to pack it to the gills.

On the right side of my closet, I have my double hanging racks for tops and jackets.  I folded my jeans (that I pray I can fit again) at the top and used dividers to keep them neat.  Because that space is tight, I used my old shoe racks (HERE).  I stacked three on top of each other.  To the right of this picture is my accessories wall.  The baskets are filled with hats and scarves.  The drawers have belts, scarves, sunglasses and more jewelry.  I plan on adding some Elfa drawers in the empty space.

I wanted my accessories where I could see them.  I decided to put my necklaces and earrings at eye level so I pull pieces easily.  I used tie/scarf hangers to hang the necklaces.  I may change this out in the future, but I’m sticking with it for now.  I also left out the box that Mister gave me when he proposed.  That’s my boo!
master elfa closet 5If you squint really hard, you can see Mister’s section behind mine.  We’ve shared a closet for several years.  I was sure that sharing a closet would break us up but he stays on his side and we stay happily married.  His side is not as cute as mine.  I thought about fixing up his side for Father’s Day or his upcoming birthday.  Since Father’s Day is this weekend, more like his birthday in July.

So that’s our closet.  Nothing spectacular but it’s organized and clean (for now). It’s more wide than it is deep, so the space needed some design help.  I believe in a good foundation for your closet to maximize the space.  High and low hanging racks will instantly double your space.  Using velvet hangers saves you so much space and makes your closet look super neat.  I also switch out my closet from spring/summer to fall/winter.  It saves so much space and I don’t have to search through sweaters looking for tanks.  Let me know what you think.  Do you have a custom closet system?  What are your closet organizing tips?

    Great job organizing your closet, love it! I like the idea of keeping spring/summer and fall/winter things together.

    Looks nice. I’ve decided the only way I’m going to get closet organization is to move. 🙁
