• Every time I attend event like @theprevailingwoman Conf, and share it in my stories, I get dozens of... I should have went. What’s keeping you from going? Are you scared? Too shy (or introverted 😒) ? Money? I’m addressing all of this and how to get the most out of a women’s empowerment event. Link in profile. #sheprevails
  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch!

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday

What I Wore on the Red Carpet

October 3, 2012
Saturday, I had an amazing opportunity to be a red carpet correspondent for Bag Ladies Radio at the BET Hip Hop Awards.  Bah-nan-nahs!  I am so grateful for this opportunity.  I was out there to check out the fashions, seeing who was Haute and who was NOT!  

For my hair… I wanted to do something low maintenance   The forecast called for clouds and rain so I rocked a high natural bun cocked to the side.  My makeup was done by the talented Jazmine from Fashion to Rouge!  I wanted a soft natural look and boy did my girl deliver!  The burnt orange lipstick was Jazmine’s idea and the perfect touch! 

I went for a more conservative look for the red carpet.  I wanted to make sure I separate myself from young groupies  ladies as much as possible!  I just LOVE my dress to death!  I got it from Nordstrom in the new Topshop section! How much do you think it was…..$350?  Nope! It was $96!

The dress is cream covered in black lace.  The cap sleeves is what got me!  This dress will be making an appearance during the holidays, wedding, parties… you name it! 

I wore my new suede Sole Society booties!!!  The cut out detail makes the shoe.  Can you believe I had them on for 3hrs standing!!!

Being on the red carpet was a great experience and would love to do it again.  All the cameras, lights and people!  It was crazy and fun at the same time.  I am a Hip Hop head at heart!  Well, more of an old school head now.  I didn’t know who 70% of the artist on the carpet.  I would hear the crowd roar, so I would ask… who is that? What do that sing?  I’m old!  Most of the artist were super nice, stopping to talk and take pictures.  I will be giving more dish on from the Red Carpet on Bag Ladies Radio soon!  I will let you guys know when I will be on air!  It’s going to be gud!!!

Who are your current Hip Hop artist?  Yall listen to that ratchet music don’t you? LOL!

    The dress is hot! That was a nice choice. You are right about the booties, the cut make them fierce. I’m still a hiphop fan but I’m definitely getting old becasue I don’t know half the artist out now. But I will forever be a Jay Z fan. Congrats on the opp! You’re looking fab like always!
