• It’s been a week y’all! I’m emotionally drained that living while black is a crime.  I have a black husband that takes care of us and provides this beautiful home we live in. I also have to worry if he gets pulled over or “Karen” decides to call the police on him what the outcome would be. Or if it happens to me. Anyway, this weekend I decided I’m going to self care which means cleaning up. Take it easy on yourself. Take a break from social if you have to.  I had to leave IG alone and go to Pinterest.  It’s ok!
  • During these trying times, people have been going above and beyond and we want to thank them. #AD @Hallmark has beautiful cards to help us show our appreciation in a meaningful way. I think we can all agree that our appreciation for teachers is at an all-time high!  I'll be sending this beautiful card to Peyton's 4th-grade teacher.  As hard as homeschooling the last few months were, she was there even after hours to assist parents. Who would you like to send a special thanks to? You can purchase @hallmark cards online or grab a few when you're picking up essentials.  #cardsdomore Link in profile
  • 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
  • Glad that’s over 😩. School is out for Quarantine Summer! Not sure what we’re going to do but I’m just happy to not have to log in teams and scan homework! So proud of how Peyton handled these few months.  She picked up a part time job with @supermomculture and got all her work done. In pray they will return in the fall 🙏🏿. 5th grade here we come!
  • I don’t know what today is but it’s always a good day for something with bacon in it! #AD Since every day feels like Blursday, I’m sharing details on my delicious Bacon Bagel sandwich on the blog!  @nationalporkboard wants to help you beat the Blursday blues by sending you some pre-cooked bacon!  Up to a 1000 people across the US will be selected!  Follow @nationalporkboard for details. Head to the blog, link in profile for my #baconforblursday recipe.  Let me know in the comments what’s your favorite dish with bacon?
  • When outside opens back up, I plan to have flawless skin! I have several affordable skincare products to share with you that I recently started using. Video features @pixibeauty @theordinary @versed and more! Book by @funmifetto. Do you have a new fave? Links to everything https://heytrina.com/shop/
  • Motherhood is something I wasn’t sure I wanted.  Look at me now! I was missing my mom today but overall I had a good day. Thank you for all@the love! @supermomculture showed out and I know that was my mom shining down. Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day!
  • 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

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.
