• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

Style Me Friday: Preppy in Red

February 1, 2013
Happy Friday!  It’s time for my new obsession…. Style Me Friday with my girl Eboni of The Fashionista Next Door.  This is the post that almost wasn’t!  But I am going to keep real and post it anyway!  I look thicker than a snickers in this skirt!  This was my only red skirt…. now I know why I have not worn it! LOL! 
Shirt, Brooks Brothers/ Pencil Skirt, F21/ Infinity Scarf, F21/ Booties, “shoe guy”/ Bag, Louis Vuitton

Sorry for looking like a stuffed sausage!  LOL!  I liked everything about the inspiration look except for the black tights so I ditched them!  Instead of a chambray shirt I put on a blue striped blouse since the skirt was tight fitted.  I already got enough going on under there!

My old booties from my shoe guy with a classic LV speedy bag.

Besides looking extra stuffed, do you think I pulled off the inspiration look?  If not, please give me a pass for this week : ).  Head over to the Fashionista Next Door to check out the Style Me Friday participants and link up!  If you are looking for me this weekend… I’ll be at the gym!

BTW: February 1st is National Wear Red Day helps raise awareness about women’s heart health.  Perfect timing!

    Girl you don’t look like a stuffed sausage! You got curves like most women of color. I like your version better. I prefer the look without the tights too.
