• Sun came out this weekend in Atlanta but it’s gone again.  This hoodie from @mikaela.pabon line is bringing me spring vibes today.  I’m also going on my first field trip with Peyton’s class.  Pray for me and send 🍷.
  • Yesterday I laid around watching HGTV and thought about how dreams can become reality. I still can’t believe this is my bathroom. God blessed us with a new bathroom via a leak. It was stressful and we still had to come out of pocket but here we are! Dreams are possible with faith, hard work and perseverance. A lot of us started with nothing but here we are.  Don’t give up. Once I get my life together I plan on producing some of the content I promised y’all. #heytrinashome #babyshopahome #bathroomremodel
  • This pretty little lady has her first science fair next week! She did a fun experiment that I’ll share once’s it’s complete. I’ve taken on the role as creative director. That means her display is going to be doing the most. I remember how bad my projects looked when I was little because I had to do everything by myself. This is my chance to redeem myself 😆. How involved do you get in your child’s projects? Links to this look on the blog (in profile).
  • 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.

5 Tips to Radiant Legs This Summer

June 20, 2017

This post is sponsored by Vaseline.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Summer 17′ is officially in full swing.  If you’ve been hiding those gambs all winter, it’s time to bring them out.  There was a time in my life when I hated summer because I was so insecure about showing my legs.  My tomboy legs were crooked (bow) and full of scars.  All the other little girls had pretty smooth legs.  By the time I reached high school, I finally embraced my legs.  Now they’re my favorite body part.  I wanted to share with you how Vaseline along with a few simple tips, keep my legs looking radiant all summer long.

Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Lotion

Tip 1: Exfoliate at least 3 to 5 times a week.  Exfoliating helps to remove dry and dead skin.  You can exfoliate with a loofah or body scrub.

Tip 2: Shave your legs often.  I’m guilty of only shaving my legs when it’s time to go somewhere and I’m trying to get better.  I’ve put myself on a shaving schedule and try to shave every other day.  A schedule makes it easy to maintain my legs instead of waiting until they have a layer of fur.

Tip 3:  Pat dry after a shower. When you step out the shower, don’t rub when you’re drying off.  Using a soft bath towel, pat your body gently to remove excess water.  Rough towel drying can dry out your skin.

Tip 4: Use a great moisturizer with cocoa butter immediately after a shower.  I’ve been using Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant moisturizing lotion since it hit the scene several years back.  Cocoa Radiant lotion made with pure cocoa and shea butter, it gives me enough moisture to make it through the day and leaves my skin smooth and radiant.  Applying Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant immediately after a shower helps to lock in the moisture while your pores are still open. Vaseline Cocoa Radiant LotionTip 5:  Drink lots of water.  You should be doing this anyway.  Radiance starts from within and drinking water will reflect in your skin.  Plus, it’s hot.

Even though my brown skin has that natural glow, it can be hard to find a moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated and radiant all day.  I’ve trusted  Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion for years on my body.  Use these tips and start planning those “Summer 17” outfits then head to Walmart to take advantage of special deals on Vaseline products.  Click HERE to learn more.

How do you get your legs ready for the summer?

    Good tips. I need to get on a shaving schedule also. Once it gets cold and I’m wearing tights/pants all the time, that goes out the window. LOL
    What do you use to exfoliate?
