• Fall porch loading... I want to add some hay stacks, lanterns & maybe more pumpkins but then I’m like, nah looks good enough. If you watched my stories you know i have a long list of projects I’m trying to get done before Thanksgiving. Get ready for the home content.  Some of my projects include but not limited to is transforming Harper’s room into a big girl room, mini master bedroom makeover, new kitchen lights, powder room update and possible a guest bathroom renovation. Oh, I also gotta clean up before my family arrives. My head hurts thinking about it but I’m going to do the best I can.  #teamdoingthemost #heytrinashome
  • Tonight is the season finale of @davidmakesman and I’m on the edge of my seat.  Another important women in David’s life is his gifted class teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. She sees the potential in David and continues to guide him as much as she can at school, his safe haven. Teachers, coaches and mentors  play in important role in our children’s lives.  Peyton has a teacher that looks like her this year and Harper thinks her teachers are family members. I think most of us have a teacher that stands out whether it be elementary or college. I still remember the first teacher that I felt really cared about me.  Sometimes that’s all it takes. 
Make sure you tune in to David Makes Man or catch up on @owntv 9/8c #davidmakesman #ad
  • It was all good just a week ago. I brought in my birthday in Aruba for my friends wedding last week.  It’s been hard to get back to reality. I realized I’m in desperate need of a time management makeover but I don’t have the time 😩. Now that I’ve started @supermomculture, trying to balance that, life and blog hasn’t been easy.  If you have some time management hacks, please share 😘
  • Let me introduce you to the new learning playground, @tumblesjohnscreek. Harper celebrated her birthday there a couple of weeks ago. Tumbles has Indoor zipline, rock wall, play ground & STEM classes and more! They are the unicorn of indoor playgrounds! Sharing details from our experience on the blog.  They also have a Halloween parents night out.  Details on the blog or visit 
  • Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad
  • Thanking God for another year! These last 6 months have been rough but I thank God for keeping me covered. Celebrate with my by taking advantage of the @supermomculture hoodie sale! Ends tonight. #libraseason

This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.
  • Your girls got a birthday coming up (10/8)! I’ll be celebrating in a tropical location this wknd for my friends wedding. I won’t need a hoodie but you guys will 😆.

  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well!

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?

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