• My first time vending with @supermomculture at @craftsavvymarket today. I had so many moments leading up to today that I told myself that it would be a lot easier to just quit and not have a both.  But then I thought, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Just remember when you have an idea that starting is half the battle.  It won’t be easy but it can be done! Thank you @craftsavvymarket for having me today.  Mr and the girls helped out so much. Thank you to everyone that came by to support! I have no clue who the little girl is on the left but she stayed with us the whole day.
  • And another ☝🏾. My precious babies. How did Harper grow up so fast! She looks 6! Slow down baby! #pictureday

Time flies! I’m still desperately trying to fit back in it! My goal for 2020!
  • Fall school pics are in and Peyton made mama proud! Low key annoyed they cut off her beautiful puff. It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!

Real talk from start to finish. I’ll share my takeaways on my stories later but @cantubeauty commitment to insuring we take action and holding us accountable is what I needed.  Time is up for going to events and not taking action.  I’m ready! 📷 @daynabolden. Hat from #targetstyle Jeans #fashionova

  • We’re taking neon right into winter! I saw @funmiford with this coat on a few weeks ago and ordered it the next day.  Wouldn’t you know, it matches my @supermomculture hoodie perfectly! Consider this my winter uniform. Details and links are on the blog heytrina.com. Link to hoodie in my profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?

Top 20 Newborn Must Haves

February 5, 2016

Baby items have certainly changed in the last 5 years. This time around I know what I really need and what not to waste money on. I bought so many things for Peyton that weren’t even used one time. I’d like to think I’m a little wiser with Harper. Outside of clothing, I try to make sure everything I buy is a must have item. I’m sharing our favorite newborn must-have items and why we love them. We have every single item that I mention so you know it’s real. Oh and before we get into it, its a good idea to make sure you have the best insurance deal possible as well. Some policies work better for families so do some comparison. My friend recommended Money Expert to me and they were so helpful! I got the perfect quote for me and my family.

Top 20 newborn must have items


top 20 baby items 21. Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30 Infant carseat. It’s one of the lightest infant seats out and is available in different colors.

2. Shea Moisture Baby Ointment. This ointment does everything! I use as a diaper rash preventative.

3. Lansinoh Electric Breast Pump. I spent a lot of time with my pump. This one is easy to use and clean.

4. Target Up + Up Diapers. I’ve tried just about every brand of diaper and found that these work just as good as expensive diapers.

5. Milk Screen Alcohol Test Strips. I’ve waited long enough to have a drink. You can use these test strips to check if there is any alcohol in your milk.

6. Boogie Mist. There is not much you can do when a baby has a cold. I’ve under estimated the power of saline for decongestion.

7. Nose Frida. If there is one thing you get from this list, get this aspirator. It get everything out an more. It’s safer than using the traditional aspirator. Pair the Nose Frida it with the Boogie Mist to get those hard dried up boogies out.

8. Quinny Zapp Xtra Stroller. It’s so chic and folds up small, I can slide it under my chair at restaurants.

9. Braun Forehead Thermometer. You don’t have to wake the baby to take their temp.

10. Johnson’s Leave-in Conditioner. This has worked great to detangle Harper’s curly thick locks after wash.

11. Babies’R’Us Disposable Changing Pads. I keep these all around the house to change Harper’s diaper. Use them to cover changing tables in public restrooms.

12. Britax Carseat Mirror. You can see baby while you drive.

13. 4 Moms Rockaroo. This swing is small and easy to move around the house.

14. Muslin Swaddle Blankets. Muslin blankets are super soft and will have your swaddle game on point!

15. Formula Dispenser. I don’t know how you travel with your formula but this makes it super easy.

16. Summer Video Monitor. Being able to see your baby without going into the room. Hello sleep training.

17. Tommee Tippee. These bottle are great if you are breastfeeding to help avoid nipple confusion.

18. Aveeno Calming Comfort Lotion. This smells divine and the lavender helps to relax baby.

19. Gerber BabyNes Formula Maker. This is the Keurig for bottles. Super easy and makes a nice warm bottle in seconds. Husband proof!

20. Shea Moisture Baby Wash and Shampoo. To this day, I still use this wash for Peyton. Leaves skin moisturized and smelling good.

Whew! Y’all just don’t know how long it took me to put this together. I’m sure I left out a lot of items. I feel like these are the most “slept” on baby items. You know, the items you use all the time and take for granted until they go missing or you run out. Do you have any of the items on this list? Do you have any must-have items to add? I may have to do a part two. Feel free to share and pin!
