I know Mothers Day was Sunday , but I am very unorthodox in my means of celebrating.Todays post is all about mom’s who I love , admire and inspire me.Can you tell which Mega Mogul Mommy inspired this look? I will give you a hint.IT’S BEYONCE!
I don’t have Beyonce’s money or team so I took my birthday princess crown from my Paper inspired birthday editorial and literally stuck plastic flowers in the small holes between the letters and boom! Instant flower crown. I only used hot glue for the leaves on the side of the crown. Other than that, the flowers are totally removable.
Why pay for it when you can do it ya damn self? #diyd
This dress though?! Can I for a minute just tell yall the goodness of this piece, can I? Aside from my mother passing her Burgundy obsession down to me the details of this dress really won me over.Im a flat chested chick (not ashamed) so the deep v-neck really flatters and elongates my short torso.It is perfect for spring and summer and no need to worry about your goodies spilling out. It has shorts made into it.I can bypass getting fully undressed to go potty in this lol.Speaking of being butt naked in the bathroom, where do you all stand on the #romphim craze? I’m getting one for bae you know what they say—the couple that romps together , stomps together (no one says that , but they will).

Everything about this look is inspired by a mom , but the most important elements come from my own mommy. I am pretty sure I have told you guys before how much she loves Burgundy and I love it too. So thanks ma for laying the ‘burgundy print’ for me. You know I live for your Southern Old lady, “put a brooch and scarf on everything”,”look what I found at the thrift store”, “Neeka you can never wear Burgundy as good as me” style. Yes, she says all these things.SHE.IS.A.MESS.
I wanted to go with a black-girl-magical, enchanted-forest, sexy –forest-nymph , backdrop because there are two MUA (makeup artists) and dope moms who inspire me to no ends with their amazing looks! Rachel Davis and Brittney Taylor are both amazing multi-talented moms and wives of service members and they…ARE LIFE! Their signature looks are so different but I wanted to capture a bit of their essence in this shoot. I recently told Rachel she does very romantic looks ;very story-tale and enchanted is what I meant to say. I hope you enjoyed your Mother’s day my love! I know you are glad hubs is back home. Brittney Taylor is my bae, ok?! We stay sliding in each other’s DM’s being messy (kidding) and bouncing creativity off one another! Her looks are always so fresh , dewey and never overly done and I love the fact that she uses blush on her melanin rich models. I tried my best to incorporate that and her love of amazing and magical backdrops just for her. I hope Breeze showered you with nothing but love and your other babies showered you in kisses and told you how awesome you are!
Hopefully I did you ladies justice, you two are just so incredibly talented and you keep me inspired! *hugs

So how did I spend my Mother’s Day? Well I got a mom’s day off as my baby spent time with with grandma.I decided to celebrate and have a mommy makeover day with my besties since they are both moms and now both nurses,congrats again Nina! I did Shalanda's (yellow dress) makeup with a tutorial and we drank plenty of wine! Moms deserve to be pampered and I will do anything I can to make my friends feel and look good. Did I mention she has twins and she nurses them? She's so amazing and has been so since 2nd grade.The only people I have known longer is my family lol.
Since my friends are nurses, they get a kick out of seeing my veins.I have great veins for giving blood.I drink a lot of water and have thin skin.Any nurses wanna see my bomb veins? lol jk
Below is Shalanda with one of her boys serving Lemonade fierceness in her yellow dress. What a coincidence it's the same dress I have on , but in yellow lol. Great friends think alike, that's the saying right? Sure it is.
Don't wait for a certain day to celebrate your mom, friend's, loved ones, do it daily. Make it a habit of celebrate them daily. Positivity begets positivity so get the energy you want in return. I love all you ladies so day and moms deserve more than one day. Oh yea guys, I got another special project coming ! I'm shooting with a new photographer this weekend.Be sure to check out my IG stories I will be giving a sneak peek!Love you all for reading!
That's Just Me!
