• 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.

Style Me Friday: Peplum

June 21, 2013
Happy First Day of Summer!  Yesterday, my style diary was featured on Elizabeth Street!  Please check out the diary (here) and see a week worth of outfits in the life of a blogger!  
Style Me Friday is back!  The inspiration look is peplum.  I’m not the biggest peplum fan.  I only have one current peplum top and one dress.  I found this old top I still had from back in my dress up for work days that I got from Arden B.  

Top (super old), Arden B (similar)/ Boyfriend jeans, Gap/ Pumps, Gucci/ Bag, Fendi/ Earrings c/o C Wonder/ Bracelets c/o Madison Maine

I scored these gently used sequin Gucci pumps for my favorite consignment store!  These will be in heavy rotation in the fall.  Consignment stores are a great way to find awesome designer pieces for a fraction of the price.

Are you a peplum fan? You can check out the other Style Me Friday looks HERE!  Don’t forget to check out my Elizabeth Street Style Diary!  Have a fabulous weekend!

    Recently I’ve been using this app called Mavatar on both my iPad and web browser that offers great deals on big name department stores. When you add items to your cart on department store websites the app compiles it all and adds all the available discounts to your purchase so you can get the best price possible. I totally recommend it and it’s really easy to get started. http://mavatar.com

    I am glad you wore peplum! I die for peplum. When I say I have maybe 8 to 10 peplum dresses and maybe 6 or 7 peplum shirts. I would wear it everyday!
