• 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

  • 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
  • Meet my team... Peyton! Seriously, this little girl works so hard.  She works hard in everything that she does but I didn’t expect her to work hard for me.  She’s not half working either! She catches me making mistakes sometimes.  She even wants to take on more responsibility. She will work long hours with me (because she does get paid) and we chat and laugh while working.  I hope this continues because she is going to be a beast in business as an adult because she’s is getting firsthand experience at 9.  Proud mama! What’s that scripture about “train up a child” .... y’all know the rest 😂. Also, head to the site for white or black tees available now!
  • Taco Tuesday on Cinco de Mayo 🙌🏾 Yes Please! I told Peyton to look up what Cinco de Mayo was and she grabbed the sombreros I brought them from my MX trio earlier this year when traveling was a thing. Mamas got Margaritas on deck! 🍹 Who else is having a special taco Tuesday?

Press On Nails for the Win

March 14, 2019

For the last few years getting my nails started to feel more like punishment than self-care. With a limited window of being kid free to escape to the salon had me wondering into any salon that was open and could take me right away. I would still experience poor service, high prices and unpleasant atmospheres. I know it would be easier to just wear my natural nails but have you seen my nails? They are short, stubby and brittle. With my demanding blogging engagements, I’m not going out like that.

I posted about my nail drama on my Instagram stories and received a ton of referrals. I found a few that I wanted to try but setting up a time for available appointments coupled with a 30-45 minute drive to get there was just not manageable. Then my friend Kristin on IG told me she dealt with the same issues and started wearing press-on nails. Eureka (I always wanted to say that)! I had some nails that I kept for emergencies but why couldn’t this be a thing.

You can’t tell me nothing now! I went to the beauty supply store a few weeks ago and have been wearing them ever since. Press-on nails have come a long way. Now I can switch my nails out as often as I want in 10 minutes for less than $10! My nails have been lasting for at least a week without losing any. Most packs come with 24 nails so you’ll have a few extras in case you lose one. The key is to make sure your natural nail is clean and rubbed with polish remover.

Below are some more cute nails that I found online.

There is a style for everyone. I’ve been wearing a medium length with no problems. The only issue is pushing the button to release Harper’s buckle on her car seat. I pushed it with my nail once, it didn’t come off but I thought I was about to lose one. The same issue is to be said for acrylic nails. I also have been giving myself manicures in between the sets.

I’m seriously enjoying the time (and money) I’m saving on my nails. Gel nails with designs can run you $60-$80 each weeks. I’m not trying to put no one out of busy, but the way my life is set up, I can’t keep that up.

    I started wearing press on nails a few months ago and I love it!!! They always look great and I change them up weekly when i get bored. CVS and Walgreens carry my favorites and have such a good selection…some walmarts do too!

    Thank you for showing me more brands if press ons! I used to just to press ons in between full sets, but have been just using them lately. I put a little nail glue on my nails when I use the imPress ones to get a little more wear out of them. They also allow me to get fun and crazy nails for vacation without spending too much money.
