Used the Tropical Moringa Hair Glaze on my
twist out and I’m currently on day 3 and during this Unpredictable Atlanta Weather my hair is definitely retaining its moisture.
Sometimes it takes a breakdown to breakthrough
I never claimed my life is perfect
I get frustrated
I get emotional ( even more emotional with this pregnancy.. the struggle is REAL )
These are emotions we ALL go through
Make a choice to Use the pain as POWER
Make a choice to Use the frustration as FUEL ⛽️
Remember you are more than a Wife, Mother, Sister, Friend, Entrepreneur... You are YOU & that is your greatest power
You have a pulse, you have a purpose
It’s not easy but it’s worth it
No Test... No Testimony
No Trials ... No Triumph
No Guts.. No Glory
No Pressure... No Diamonds
You are destined for greatness!!!
First comes love
then comes marriage
then comes the baby in the baby carriage.
Let’s just say butterflies in my stomach turned into a heartbeat
Time to tell our secret
My MCM turned into my husband & now Daddy @claysons_ig
New addition to the Panton Family
We’re Expecting!! Our girls are excited and so are we! 🍁🍂✨🧡🎊 #WereExpecting#BabyPanton#blacklove
Are you living your dreams? ✨
Do you see it? It took me a second glance too...
Love this photo! And had such a great time shooting with @aceapproved over the weekend in my Brum hometown.
Thank you Ace for getting your kicks wet just to get this shot.
And whilst trés editorial, I love that we caught this little message in the background.
Especially as it’s been something on my mind; a recent family health scare got me putting life in perspective.
With everything turning out all fine in the end, it’s made me realise more than ever how precious life is! So thankful for my Christian faith that I hold onto and that sees me through the good and the bad, always. So blessed for my family, my friends, my work that I love, and all the exciting adventures that I stand on the edge of.
So, indeed, sometimes you gotta get your feet a little wet - heck, you gotta wade right in! - to take hold of all the opportunities and experiences that this life can give 💫

You can’t pour from an empty cup
You can’t even pour from a full cup
You have to pour from the overflow
The FULL part is for you
The overflow is for everyone else.
At times we pour so much into everything & everyone else we forget about
Numero Uno... Ourselves 🙋🏾♀️ So many titles we hold... as a mom, wife, entrepreneur, sister.. etc it’s okay to be all those things & more but make sure you are FULL & have an abundance of overflow so you can physically, emotionally and mentally be in a position to pour into someone.
Stop depleting yourself...
Even on a plane they say in case of an emergency 🚨 put the mask on first then help someone else.
Swing when you’re winning they say 💛
So here’s me: swinging, (feelin’ like I’m) winning, and doing quite a bit of grinning. (I do a lot of that last one! )
This week it’s on account of good things coming together... exciting news to be shared soon ➰
Plus, here I think I’m feeling pretty chuffed that I snapped this photo of myself!
A funny story. Me and my mom go for a walk in the park. I decide to take my camera and tripod to see what I can snap . A few self timers later & less funny looks than expected, some decent shots! (People must be much more understanding of what you gotta do for the gram)
But lesson learned: ain’t no point worrying about what people think.
So, in the words of one of my favourites (@mayasworld) : “Just do you, boo!” _
Happy Wednesday! 💫
OAHU Curlies! I am coming out November 8th & 9th back at Salon Ava in town! Let me know if you would like a Deva Cut!! For those who got their cuts in July it’s been 4 months lmk if you need another trim! 😘 See you soon! Contact info in my bio👆🏾👆🏾
A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset
The desire to move forward despite...
When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive & healthy
Remember you have purpose
Life is a blessing & I’m forever grateful
To have another day
Another opportunity to get it right! 🌱✨

Taking @Topshop selfies since 2011
This is giving me all the feels:
Feeling like I need this suit in my life
Feeling myself even in my socks
Feeling like imma boss lady, no shoes and all.
Feeling like that last one is especially true as just recently I’ve been taking some real significant steps to becoming an actual boss lady; actually taking the plunge to focus on building a business.
So feeling like it won’t be long until the day comes when someone asks me, what do you do, I’ll have a better answer than “Freelance Creative” because whilst that’s “real” specific, boss lady kinda feels better 😅
So my final feels for the day; Got a dream? A big idea? A passion you want to pursue? - Why don’t you feel the fear and do it anyway! ✨
It’s the season to cut those dead ends off. Just got a trim! Even though this Atlanta humidity got my hair struggling to stay straight... no split ends. Mission accomplished. Thanks to my sister & stylist @kanishiafairyhairmother 😘😘#fall#trim#naturalhair#deadends#healthyhair
103 days left to the year
Today I chose to be my own #WCW because I’m super proud of the Woman I’m evolving into. Everything I have prayed for has been happening and I’m just so grateful. I went through the lowest of the lows... sweat and tears to get to where I am today. Let me tell you the amount of
Character building moments I had this year... whooaaaa!! But I’m a better Woman, Wife & Mother because of it. Sometimes you have to look in the mirror and say “ I’m proud of you! You can & have surpassed every and any hurdle that has came your way!” Trust me, It can be challenging trying to be positive in a world where people constantly prey on your happiness. This year was about removing anything & anyone that wasn’t conducive to my Growth. Protecting my peace by any means necessary. It’s okay to be in touch but out of reach. You know the saying “ separation is needed for elevation” So if you catch me shining it’s because I’ve been working on my
In a couple days it will be less than 100 days left to the year.
Finish with momentum...
Finish with purpose...
Finish the year being the absolute Best version of yourself you can possibly be.
Believe in yourself and all that you are.
There’s something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle
There’s greatness in you. 🌱
