A Box of Chocolates

Tuesday, January 8, 2019





 
So ummm, I just started really digging sneakers about 3 years ago. Since then I have a nice little collection. I'd say 11 pairs. Is that a collection? Anywho these Nike Cortez were on my wishlist for a while because they go with just about anything and they remind me of one of my favorite movies... Forrest Gump!
















How friggin cute is my mini? Well technically she favors her dad, but who's paying attention to that? Lol!
 
 
 
This suit from Charlotte Russe caught my eye because I can wear it to work or to kick around in on the weekend. It also makes for good separates. I can live in a suit, they never steer you wrong.

First of all how cute is this hoodie dress from She In!!! I didn't realize that they had such cute childrens clothes and great prices.
 
 
Yesterday was such a gorgeous day here in Atlanta, so we went out window shopping and to grab some food. I really wish that I could have gotten some more pictures of her outfit but, a running toddler is hard to take pictures of!











We hope you enjoy your Monday!

Lead the Way

Saturday, September 8, 2018

 
 
 
While crafting this post I literally just realized that all of Hendrix's outfit is Target! I love that place.
 
 
 
Onesie: Target // Tulle Skirt: Target // Cowgirl boots: Target // Turban: See this post
 
 
 
 





 
Hendrix's onesie says Malcolm, Martin, Harriet, Ida... Lead the Way. I love putting Hendrix in cute clothes, especially ones that really say something. I have a huge job to do. Grow and water an individual. And I plan to impact her with those who came before us and set an example.














We are picking up some Fall items for Hendrix and I have a couple things I have my eye on. But I had to get some cowgirl boots for her. I can see her in these with so many outfits. 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



 
In most of her pictures she is taking off in a run and I have to pause and catch up to her real quick! But those are the pictures I love because they really show her personality. Can you just look at the legs in these boots!! Adore!

Decatur book fair

Sunday, September 2, 2018

It’s been a great summer for books. We got a chance to explore at the Decatur Book Fair yesterday. It was hot but we listened to some authors talk about their books, and saw some titles we wanna buy. We even came across some live poetry at a little coffee shop. Ate some lunch, and of course we stopped and had ice cream at the cutest little shop. 






Hendrix’s outfit 
Kimono: Crazy 8 // Romper: Old Navy // Shoes: Converse






I didn’t get a good full outfit picture but I’m wearing 

Dress: Forever21 // chains from my shop: Jade Vintage and Jewelry // Shoes: San Edelman by way of TJ Maxx












We’ve been singing about the importance of sharing and saying please and thank you. So Hendrix even loves sharing with people that she meets. ❤️





















After a full day Hendrix kicked back and fell asleep. I don’t know why my child always has to have her feet propped up, lol!





How did you kick off your long weekend?

We're Going to Need More Books

Sunday, August 26, 2018




Hendrix definitely loves two things already... books and music. We recently found a place nearby our home called Books by the Pound. You get as many books as you want and they weigh them. You just pay $3.99 per pound. I got Hendrix a few books but it takes sooooo long to look through them. So Hendrix just decided to kick back and flip through Pocahontas while I looked around for some books for mommy.





I'm really into spiritual, self help, and autobiographies lately. I want so many more autobiographies now after listening to Jenifer Lewis' "The Mother of Black Hollywood" and Gabrielle Union's "We're Going to Need More Wine" on audible. have a huge want list of books on amazon right now for me and Hendrix both. Here is what is on our list... I'm making my way down it slowly but surely!

Baby Selfies

Tuesday, July 24, 2018







Sometimes all I can do is look at this child in amazement. She is learning more and more each day. Learning from me and her other cherished ones. As I grow sometimes I learn some nerve-racking things but I know that ultimately my knowledge will make me a better mom. Unlearning is my job so that her awareness is atop of mine.  Ps. It’s super hard to take a selfie with her now because she grabs and tries to control the phone. 


What are some things your child does that just makes you laugh and shake your head? ❤️❤️

Transparency

Saturday, June 9, 2018







Haven’t been posting myself lately. I may be wrong, but I’ve felt like there’s not much to show. Hendrix is the cutest part of me lately. 80% of the time I’m as pictured. No makeup, lounge wear, and possibly hair unwashed. 


I haven’t dealt with this feeling in a looonngggg time so it’s quite unusual but my esteem of self is quite low. I dare not say that I am not beautiful. How can I say that when I have birthed and nurtured a child. When my skin is still smooth and glowy, and my hair thick. What I can say is that I don’t know how to own my beauty right now. I don’t know how to navigate the extra 25 in my curves. I’m unsure of this new skin. She isn’t familiar. 


Now I’ve never been petite. And I follow a wealth of curvy bloggers but can’t grab a hold of the same confident look they have. I follow beautiful mommy bloggers but can’t take a fresh white bright photo with my baby in tow because I’m so flustered from working full time and being a mom. How do I do it all? Well I know, I love to write. I love a good outfit and photo. And I know that in due time I will figure it out. I know that I am beautiful because I tell myself that in the mirror each day along with the other mantras that matter. But until I ace this part of the journey here I am, how I usually look. Fresh faced and undone. But like the phoenix, the billowy clothed queen will rise again.
