Shea Moisture Cosmetics Swatches

The much anticipated Shea Moisture Cosmetics has arrived at select Target stores!  Unfortunately the Shea Moisture section at my Target looks like a tornado came through with only a few items left blowing in the wind.  Shea moisture had an awesome booth at the World Natural Hair Show this past weekend and I was able to check out all the cosmetics.

Mini Panama Hat

I love my Panama hat.  It comes in handy for picnics and at the pool.  I was determined to get Peyton a Panama hat for this spring and summer.  I found one from Gap Kids in February when the snow was still coming down in Atlanta.  Peyton was finally able to take her Panama hat for a spin with her denim Ruum dress.

Mother's Day Gift Idea: Lipstick with a Message

I recently received the most awesome gift ever from Neiman Marcus that I can't stop talking about.  I received the Guerlain Le Rouge Lipstick.  I know your wondering what's the big deal about a lipstick.  Not only is my Guerlain lipstick in a bright deep berry color (Garconne), it has my name on it! A shed a tear when I saw it was made special for me.

Wu-Tang Clan

One fact you may not know about me is that I love Hip Hop!  Old hip hop that is.  Some of this new stuff I just can't roll with.  One of my favorite groups of all time is Wu-Tang!  Yes!  One of my first outings after having Peyton was going to a Wu-Tang concert in Atlanta.  You don't know how excited I was when one of my friends found a mini Wu tee for Peyton.  Introducing the Mommy and Me Wu-Tang Clan!

Sunday Best

Happy Easter!  I hope everyone had a fabulous one!  I attempted cleaned out Peyton's closet this week and found several dresses that she hasn't worn.  One of them being a beautiful Marchessa dress that I purchased during the Neimans/Target holiday collaboration.  Luckily I bought it in a bigger size so she was able to wear it on Easter Sunday.

Suited Up

I feel like it has been so long since Peyton had an outfit post.  I have so many looks ready for spring but with my crazy schedule and busted SD cards it hasn't been going as planned.  But Peyton's back and flyer than ever!  Watch my baby werk in this little girls pant suit that I picked up at Zara when I was in LA.

My Motivation for Grinding #McCafeGrind

This post is brought to you by McDonald’s®. I have partnered with them to spread the word about McCafé® Coffee.

People don’t grind for no reason at all.  No one just wakes up and say, I’m going to “Go hard today” with no motivation behind it.  Yeah, we got bills to pay, gotta keep the lights on and eat.  But what is the real motivation?  I could easily say Peyton motivates me to keep grinding.  She does motivate me to a certain extent, because I want her to have the best life possible.  But person that motivates me the most is my Mom.

Face Mapping with Dermalogica

I was invited to the new Dermalogica store in Atlanta to enjoy a complimentary face mapping skin analysis.  This was right on time because I've been having crazy issues with my skin lately.  My face has been dry, flaky and breaking out.  I knew it it was time for a change.

Atlanta Baby & Child Expo April 26th + Giveaway

I'm a big fan of baby expos.  You know why?  Because I went to one when I was 8 months pregnant and won an amazing stroller and car seat from Britax!  You never know what could happen at these events!  So I wanted to let you know that Atlanta Baby and Child Expo is coming to the fabulous Fox Theater on April 26th.  Yes, Britax will be in the house!  I'm giving one mom two passes to head to the expo.

What I wore to #LuckyFabb

If you follow me on Instagram, you would've gotten a sneak peek at what I wore to LuckyFabb in LA.  Dressing for a conference can be a little stressful, especially a fashion conference.  Instead of trying to do something crazy and out of the norm, I decided to wear something that would be comfortable and flattering with some super cute shoes.

Best of the Fest with ModCloth

I hope you guys had a great weekend.  I just made it back from L.A. for LuckyFabb.  Even though I was dog tired, I managed to get some pictures of Peyton yesterday.  I put my SD card in the computer and all her pictures were corrupted!  So your stuck with some pictures of me today until I figure out how to fix it.   My few days in LA were action packed!  I had a ball hanging with Danielle from Style and Beauty Doctor and Aracely from Mama Fashion Files.  I couldn't have asked for a better crew to roll with.  Right off the plane, we headed to have lunch and checkout some "Best of the Fest" looks from ModCloth.

Becoming an Mompreneur by Imperfect Concepts

After starting this blog, I have been blessed to connect with some amazing women that are beautiful, smart, driven and just good people.  Being in the in the company of these awesome women is nothing short of inspiring.  Even though I'm getting close to *clears throat* to forty, I know I can still peruse my dreams.  Some of y'all may not know I used to have my own jewelry line, clothing company, and styling (I still do).  After having a Peyton, my attention was focused on her.  

God put the thought of starting a blog with her in my head, even though I didn't really know what a blog was.  And here we are!  I'm saying all this to say, we can be moms and still go after our dreams.  While I head to the "West Side" *in my Ice Cube voice* for LuckFabb, one of my genius friends and business consultant, Tasha from Imperfect Concepts is going to drop some gems on working your way to becoming an Momprenuer.

Welcome to Spring #AladdinParty

Regardless of the weather, Spring is here!  Before you know it, it will be summer, than back to school.  Work and events can get in the way of connecting with friends.  I was happy to take the time out to host a Welcome to spring party with a few of my girlfriends featuring the new Aladdin Mason collection.  

Fashion Blogger Pop-Up Shop in Atlanta

Being the shopaholic that I am, I have way too much stuff.  New shoes have to wait in line for their turn.  It's so sad.  Lucky for you (if you wear a size 7.5 or 8) I'm teaming up with some fabulous Atlanta fashion bloggers for a pop-up shop at the W in Buckhead on April 12th.

Beach Ready Without Working Out #TENways

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I think it’s safe to say that spring has arrived.  I’m about to head to the beach and I’m not ready!  I need at least 30 days to get my life together, eat better and work out.  I was doing well with my weight loss plan earlier this year.  I lost weight but the snow storms came, stores were closed and I ate whatever I could get my hands on.  
Don't laugh at my big bathing suit bottom.
