• Sun came out this weekend in Atlanta but it’s gone again.  This hoodie from @mikaela.pabon line is bringing me spring vibes today.  I’m also going on my first field trip with Peyton’s class.  Pray for me and send 🍷.
  • Yesterday I laid around watching HGTV and thought about how dreams can become reality. I still can’t believe this is my bathroom. God blessed us with a new bathroom via a leak. It was stressful and we still had to come out of pocket but here we are! Dreams are possible with faith, hard work and perseverance. A lot of us started with nothing but here we are.  Don’t give up. Once I get my life together I plan on producing some of the content I promised y’all. #heytrinashome #babyshopahome #bathroomremodel
  • This pretty little lady has her first science fair next week! She did a fun experiment that I’ll share once’s it’s complete. I’ve taken on the role as creative director. That means her display is going to be doing the most. I remember how bad my projects looked when I was little because I had to do everything by myself. This is my chance to redeem myself 😆. How involved do you get in your child’s projects? Links to this look on the blog (in profile).
  • 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.

BlogHer Fashion Mamanista New York Party Style Spring Fashion Suakoko Suakoko Betty Toys Zutano

Zutano Kids Fashion at FAO Schwarz NYC

August 9, 2012
Parties in NYC for BlogHer were just off the chain!  Next up is a party at FAO Schwarz on 5th Ave!  Hosted by Nicole of Momtrends and Melisa of Project Nursery, with a Spring 2013 preview of Zutano.  

Me with the FAO Soldier! *Que Destiny’s Child.  Wearing Suakoko Betty Maxi Skirt, Forever21 tee, necklace from H+M. 

I learned of Zutano when I was pregnant and fell in love with the line!  The fun colors and adorable designs drew me in.  Zutano founder, Michael Belenky, shared the history of Zutano and the inspiration behind the brand.

With the force behind Momtrends, Nicole.  Let me get that top!!!

FAO Schwarz is Ah-Maze-Balls! (first time using that phrase.. felt good!)  I mean, I was ready to play!  Peyton would lose her mind if I took her there.  It is a Wonderland!

These animals were bigger then two of me!  Cray!

Great party in a fabulous place!  Are you a fan of Zutano?  Zutano has a Zutano Blue line coming to Target soon!  Can’t wait for that!

    I love FAO Schwarz. Looks like so much fun. Who doesn’t love a massive toy store on 5th ave in NYC. You look gorgeous. The Zutano line is adorable. I can’t wait to have a little bambino, so i can dress them up in some cute outfits from Zutano. Love! 🙂

    I loved FAO Schwartz as a kid! They had two stores in IL and the one on Michigan Ave had the most amazing things…like a real gasoline required ferarri for $7K.
