• 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.

  • Y’all! This is my baby! How did this happen?! She’ll be 10 in July (going on 17). She swears she’s already a teenager and should get a phone. No ma’am! Stay my baby 😓. Also, get into this blazer tho! Link in profile. #fashionkids
Chi-town Mamanista Marshalls Nail Polish Weekend Style

Weekend Chicago Style

May 14, 2012
I wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day again to you ladies!  I hope you had a great one!
Just I suspected (and checking the weather) Chicago was pretty cool and rainy compared to Atlanta.  It was 80 when we left Atlanta and low 60s in Chicago!  Don’t you hate packing for a whole other season?

For the cool weather Peyton is wearing a cardigan by Imoga from Gilt Groupe, tank from H & M.  Levi Bootcut jeans from Marshall.  Leopard mary janes from Target.

While in Chicago, my BBF and I took our girls to get there toes done.  Peyton surprised me and did really well and sat there like a big girl!  Yes that is an blue extension in her hair.  It came with her happy meal.

I can’t wait to take Peyton in the future to get her nails done.  Now maybe I can enjoy a pedicure instead of rushing.  Do you take the kids to the nail shop?

    So cute!

    I prefer not to bring Madison with me. She’s only been once and she ended up getting a mani and pedi as well.

    Cute!!! I take Reagan to the nail shop with me also. I usually leave off the mani. As long as I have plenty of snacks and beverages she does pretty good, lol.

    I don’t take my little one but I would take her to one that catered to kids just for fun. I said I would wait until she is 3 to explore that… Don’t know why I chose that age – it’s arbitrary
