  • Tonight is the season finale of @davidmakesman and I’m on the edge of my seat.  Another important women in David’s life is his gifted class teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. She sees the potential in David and continues to guide him as much as she can at school, his safe haven. Teachers, coaches and mentors  play in important role in our children’s lives.  Peyton has a teacher that looks like her this year and Harper thinks her teachers are family members. I think most of us have a teacher that stands out whether it be elementary or college. I still remember the first teacher that I felt really cared about me.  Sometimes that’s all it takes. 
Make sure you tune in to David Makes Man or catch up on @owntv 9/8c #davidmakesman #ad
  • It was all good just a week ago. I brought in my birthday in Aruba for my friends wedding last week.  It’s been hard to get back to reality. I realized I’m in desperate need of a time management makeover but I don’t have the time 😩. Now that I’ve started @supermomculture, trying to balance that, life and blog hasn’t been easy.  If you have some time management hacks, please share 😘
  • Let me introduce you to the new learning playground, @tumblesjohnscreek. Harper celebrated her birthday there a couple of weeks ago. Tumbles has Indoor zipline, rock wall, play ground & STEM classes and more! They are the unicorn of indoor playgrounds! Sharing details from our experience on the blog.  They also have a Halloween parents night out.  Details on the blog or visit

  • Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad
  • Thanking God for another year! These last 6 months have been rough but I thank God for keeping me covered. Celebrate with my by taking advantage of the @supermomculture hoodie sale! Ends tonight. #libraseason
  • Felt cute, might delete later (jokes). Lol 😂 I’ve been wanting to use that caption. Hello from #Aruba 👋🏾. Having a ball celebrating my friend nuptials. This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.
  • Your girls got a birthday coming up (10/8)! I’ll be celebrating in a tropical location this wknd for my friends wedding. I won’t need a hoodie but you guys will 😆. My birthday gift to you is a sale on @supermomculture hoodies! Link in profile.  I’m wearing a medium in the hoodie (unisex sizes)! ♎️ #supermomculture Wearing @thelipbar Hot Mama
  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well! Tune in to the powerful series #DavidMakesMan on OWN on Wednesdays at 9/8c #AD
  • I used 3 packs of @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair in Suga Mama and one pack of exotic curl in coffee (said wrong in video). My edges can’t handle single braids so cornrows it is! #latchedandhooked #bohobraids

The Perfect Summertime Drink

June 11, 2018

This post is sponsored by The J.M. Smucker Company, all opinions are my own.

Summer break will be here soon! Entertaining both girls all day can be a lot of work but I’m looking forward to not having to wake up at the crack of dawn. It’s also a time to plan some fun play dates with my mom friends. Since my mom friends are tired like a mother like me, I’ll be serving a new summertime treat, Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew. As a refreshing pick me up, Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew is perfect for a warm day. Available at Walmart, I’m going to show you how easy it is to make a pitcher of Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew.

Each box of Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew comes with two packets that will make two pitchers. I’m only making one pitcher.

I open one packet and drop the two bags in my pitcher.

I add water as directed and place the pitcher in the fridge overnight (8 hours). Once I’m ready to drink, I can add in more water for my desired cold brew strength.

After pouring my Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew over ice. Which by the way I’d seen on an ice-making reviewing site which reviews the best equipment needed to make ice! You should definitely check out, https://icemaker.zone/. I had then added a little almond milk. I have the perfect refreshing drink at home.

I’ve already got my porch all ready up to host my girlfriends and their kids this summer. One pitcher is good to sip on for up to a week when refrigerated. Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew is great to serve at play dates or just to sip on at home. Head to Walmart to find Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew in the coffee aisle.

Are you a cold brew/ice coffee fan? I’m looking for more delicious ways to drink my Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew so please share what you like in your ice coffee.

    Ice coffee always hits the spot in the warmer months when I still want to get my coffee fix. Sometimes, I pull out the blender, add a scoop of ice cream, and some ice to it and make a coffee milkshake. Super delicious.
