Kim Kardashian's "Not So" Maternity Style

Last night on Bag Ladies Radio show not only did we discuss kids style but we weighed in on Kim K's maternity fashions!  Poor girl is getting ripped apart by the media and social media.  I think everyone was excited to see what she would be wearing to cover her bump and this is what she comes up with!  I feel bad for her but have you seen what she has been wearing while rocking the bump?

Spring Trends: Black + White

One trend that we all should be excited about rocking this Spring is Black + White!  It's so chic and oh so easy to do!  Match pieces with white top or black pants and you are ready go!

Global Kids Fashion Week Wrap Up

The first ever Global Kids Fashion Week just went down in London last week!  Children's fashion has evolved and I think it deserves to be celebrated!  Here are a few of the looks that I loved from Global Kids Fashion Week!  Seriously, the boys fashion held it down!

Tales of Singledom: Bag Ladies Recap

If you ladies don't tune into Bag Ladies Radio on Wednesdays you are missing out!  A few weeks ago we dished with Bobbi Thomas (HERE) about retail therapy.  Last week we talked "Tales of Singledom" with Certified Dating and Relationship Coach, Shay "Your Date Diva" Williams!  I know I am not single but I once was!  Regardless, Shay Williams had some great advise!  You can listen to the show HERE!

Weekend Style: Florals + Headbands

I hope you guys had a great weekend!  Pretty low key over here!  Saturday started out rainy so I thought it would be a good idea to flip my closet from Winter to Spring.  While stuck in my closet for hours, the sun came out and the day ended up being pretty nice but a little chilly!

Beyonce for H+M

As if I didn't have enough reasons to shop at H+M!  Beyonce is the new face for the summer campaign for H+M!
Not only is she the face, but she also had a hand in the design for the collection.  Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.  The collection is will hit stores in May!  I was a little a surprised that she partnered with H+M.  I think of her more as a Gucci or Chanel kinda lady.  But it is great that she is working with a brand that we all can obtain!  She should design a Blue Ivy collection for H&M!

What do you think of this partnership?  Will you be checking out the collection?

Style Me Friday: White Jeans

Happy Friday Ladies!  Weather is crazy in the A!  We had a few nice weekends now it's going to on the cold side this weekend.  My girl Eboni from Fashionista Next Door is back in her groove with Style Me Friday!  This weeks inspiration look is based around white jeans!  The fashion rule is no white until after Memorial Day!  I tend to follow the fashion rules but there are some exceptions!  I'm cool with rocking white jeans for Spring whether it's March or May and winter whites.  But please no white linen pants!

Mama Needs a Swimsuit

Peyton was walking around the house last weekend saying she was going to the beach with her little buckets.  I kept thinking to myself... how does this child know what a beach is?  After further questioning I found out she learned what a beach was from watching Caillou!  I felt bad that she has not been to a beach so I booked a mini vacay to the Gulf Coast in FL for Spring Break.  But now I am freaking out because I am not in bathing suit condition!  I'm frantically looking for a flattering swim suit.  These are the only ones I like online.

Pattern Mixing with Peyton + New LMA Necklace

Watch out Solange!  Peyton has become quite the pattern mixer!  She does it so effortlessly!  The key to pattern mixing is having the patterns with similar colors.  Make sure one of the patterns are simple like strips or dots.  Peyton will show you how it's done!

Spring Shopping Spree Part 2

My name is Trina and I am a Baby Shopaholic!  Can we say that I borderline went HAM shopping for Peyton just Saturday alone!  The weather was so nice so I had no choice to but rack up on Spring clothing!  I found some great deals!

The Gap was having their friends and family sale with an extra 40% off of everything!  Picked up these awesome bamboo sunglasses and white and lemon eyelet top.

I know... I have been slacking on the outfit post the last couple weeks.  I haven't been out much therefore I have been rocking a lot of sweats at the crib!  I hope to get my swagger back this week!   Mister and I went out for a casual date on Saturday evening so I snapped a few pics.

My Curls are Poppin! #NaturalHair

My hair has been free from extensions for almost a month and my go to style is usually a bun.  I wanted to embrace my natural curls more this time around but it tends to only look good for one day or maybe even just a few hours!  I want my curls to look more define but the end result is usually just looks a hot frizzy mess.  I finally went through my stash of hair products to find something new and pulled out the Curls Cashmere Curl Jelly.

I received the Curls Cashmere Curl Jelly in my CurlBox black Friday bag!

What I Learned From Bobbie Thomas on Bagladies Radio

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

If you didn't tune in to Bagladies Radio show last night for our Shopping Confessions chat, boy you missed out!  Not only did we all dish about our not so good shopping habits but Bobbie Thomas, style editor of the Today show joined in on the chat as well!  Maj!  Lucky for you, you can listen to the show on demand on 
During the show, Bobbie shared with us how she loves retail therapy and that every lady should treat herself!  She said that therapy doesn't mean going out and splurging on expensive items.  It could be just a pair of earrings, a scarf or cruising the thrift store!  Something that makes you happy!  I like how this girl thinks!

Bobbie has a new book coming out April 23, The Power of Style!  This book is said to be more than a style guide but more of a "Life" style guide!
Beyond understanding your best colors and figure-flattering clothes, Bobbie takes a unique step back in this inspiring guide to empower you to feel stylish, smart, sexy, and satisfied—with a look that's uniquely your own…
I love Bobbie!  I can't wait to get a copy of the book!  I feel a Book Club coming on.... Who is in?  How do you do "retail" therapy?

The Secret to Movie Night

Going out for dinner and a movie with Mister are non-existent now that we have a child.  Even if it were easy to get out to the movies, who has 2 hours to sit in a movie theater?  The last time my husband and I went to the movies I sat there thinking about clothes that needed to be washed and folded, I gotta pick up some diapers on the way home, and what emails I need to respond to.  In the words of Sweet Brown “Ain’t no body got time for that!”  LOL!

Found: Awesome Liquid Eyeliner!

I am a big fan of liquid eyeliner because it doesn't run. Regular liners make me look like I didn't wash my face from the day before.  That look is to be kept for a smokey eye.  I normally wear my Kiss liquid liner but it recently went missing.  The place that I buy it from is a little out of the way so I have not been able to replace it yet.  I was in the mall and stumbled into Sephora to see what's new.  They had an eyeliner tester display so I decided to play with them.  The Stila liquid liner reigned supreme! 

I made a line on my hand and rubbed it immediately and it did not smudge!  So I took it home!
