Keeping my hair straight after a fresh press should actually be a full time job 😂 I think I’ve tried to dodge every single ounce of moisture this week including my Fix+. But thank you to @salontamikabell for being my ride or die master stylist for 12 years and counting! Excited to get on a regular regimen so that we can continue this growfth #KelliHands

We actually shouldn’t be allowed to travel together 😂

#IssaLongOne Momma, I made it!!! Jk not really. But, one of my all time favorite brands thought that I was cute enough to use in their window display. Sandy cheeks, bruised leg, and all!
I only have a couple of brands that I genuinely believe in, and @aerie is at the top of the list. I think all women can agree that bathing suit shopping is a mental and emotional roller coaster. We’re our hardest critics and society creates this impossible standard of perfection that’s only attainable with photoshop. But when you’re scrolling through their website and you’re able to see other women with a shape like yours, stretch marks, natural hair, AND cellulite rocking a bikini, it takes a lot of the stress away. They’ve given me so much confidence when I’m at my beach happy place!
So thank you to @iskra for being the stunning (inside and outside!) catalyst for this whole new perception that I have about my body, @fopopps for helping me pick out my bathing suits because “if her butt looks good in it, mine will too”, and literally all of the aerie models for having the courage to join their campaign and not be retouched in their photos! I want to be like y’all when I grow up.
P.S. I’m trying not to hit “buy” on my cart full of suits right now 🙃#aeriereal

Happy International Women’s Day! I’m lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing women, but these two are the original Queens of resiliency and strength in my life! Meet Branny and Grandmama aka Thelma and Louise aka Waltsie and Beatrice. When I was still incubating inside of @3cs_mom, they thought they were going to name me Waltsie Beatrice 🤔. But I serve an awesome God.
I grew up confused because I always thought that mother in laws were supposed to be best friends like them. They even share the same birthday so I think it was just meant for me to have them. These two are proof that having a praying grandma will do wonders for your life. Pretty sure this unreal favor is partly due to them and I’m forever grateful to have their blood running through my veins because a Baskerville AND Waites woman is a force to be reckoned with 😈

It’s my favorite lady’s birthday today!!! Happy birthday to you momma! Thank you for being my super woman and for letting me ruin your empty nester dreams 😘😘 I appreciate and love you to pieces boo!!

Hello Wednesday. Meet Beana (pronounced Bee-Nuh). My woman crush. She likes bread, tequila, and getting sunburnt. She also has a bachelors degree in peer pressure (summa cum laude). Lastly, I love her very much. #aeriereal #doublethetrouble

I think we’ve started a new family tradition ❤️❤️ #BoatingBaes2019 #BeReadyMomoAndTommee

Still cruising along ☀️ 🛳 #aeriereal

Two peas in a pod since 1992!!! Happy Birthday to my original best friend, Joe Natnan!!

Y’all, my manz is 26 today. I’m not going to get too mushy about how awesome he is because 90% of the Atlanta population already knows that he’s great. But I will say that he has been one of the most welcome and beautiful additions to my life! Thank you for being uniquely you; that includes you’re Beni Hana obsession😘! Happy Birthday to you old man and I can’t wait to celebrate many more with you! #ComeHome #Now #😐
