Reiko/ God’s Favorite Shoes  Houston• Lifestyle Your humorous guide to eclectic style, motherhood & everything in between. Mom to @zaviandzara #JLMBoxAmbassador

Happy Monday! I was looking at this outfit and immediately thought about how much it also reflects my interior design style. If I walked into a room and it had hints of clean lines, classic pieces with a touch of boho, I would be a happy girl. When I was younger, I bought all of these wicker chairs and baskets because I thought that my home interior style was all boho. I realized later that it’s not. I feel cluttered in a true boho environment. I like clean lines in furniture but I don’t necessarily care for everything to be structured... same goes true for my personal style. •


What is your style? Does your personal style match your home interior style? #gfsstyle #momshavestyle #blackmomsblog

Life is full of its ups and downs, so l choose to really celebrate the good things! You never know when the unexpected will happen, so why not be glad right here and right now? I announced my #JLMBox ambassadorship at the top of the month. Read all about it and the other exciting things happening for our family in this month's installment of #KUWTF. Yup, l said WTF. 😂 F is Fosters! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As a mother's day gift to myself (well, kinda) l am thinking of slipping away for an hour or two on the weekends to work on the blog. If my BA in Journalism didn't give you a clue, l hope that one or two of my posts here or on God's Favorite Shoes would have hinted at my love for writing. It is absolutely one of my favorite things to do. I love the opportunity to be creative and leave my sense of humor on a page. It makes me happy. 😌 If ever you need a little something something written, call @zaviandzara's mom. I hear she's good! 😛

It's Monday morning and l'm already thinking about how l will reclaim my lunch period today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time l hear (from fellow teachers and non-teachers) that they do not take breaks at work, l want to take off my earrings and start something!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first round of state testing is done for us which means kids are about to turn all the way up. I’m trying my best to handle stress and fatigue. I’m learning I cannot complain about stress and fatigue if I do not change the things I can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know that sometimes working through your lunch period sounds appealing, especially if that means you can get home to your family on time instead of working late.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But one hour (or in my case 28 minutes) of fresh air can make such a difference to the energy and mood of the woman, wife and mom who walks through the door at the end of her work day. Whether you arrive home at 3pm or 3:45pm, tired is tired and a headache is a headache. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give yourself the opportunity to mend from your morning and prep for your afternoon by having lunch time to yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Looking for other ways to de-stress and reclaim your time? Remember that l've got a freebie for you under the #selfcare tab on the blog! 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Oh and the winner of the @justlikemebox will be announced this Wednesday in my Instastories 😉

While everyone is still coming off the #beychella high, l'd like to draw your attention to #mothersday which is noooot too far off in the distance! 😂 If l were a boy (or rather, a man) l'd follow the simple Mother's Day hacks listed in my latest post on the blog! Feel free to pass around to all the men in your lives ladies! You can thank me later, maybe with a ticket to #ontheruntour 2? (Joking)

In my closet, denim ain't denim if it ain't distressed! 😅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We have plans for both kids today, with Zavier attending a party at the @thewoodlandscm later! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Somewhere between our usual weekend shenanigans l need to fix this hair and get my life!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you've ever wondered (which you probably have not)) l don't really enjoy styling my hair, don't ask me why! Lol.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Loved the faux locs but it was time. I'm not sure if it's a head wrap kinda morning or whether l'll bite the bullet and tackle this head. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think l should do with my hair next?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Low maintenance recommendations are certainly welcomed!

No ordinary #disneyprincess will do for Zara! Lol. We're beginning birthday party prep this weekend. She specifically wants an Uma theme which doesn’t really exist. So let’s see what I can pull together. Would you like to see Zara’s #uma theme come to come to life on my Insta Stories? Let me know and I'll hook you up with the deets! xo #descendants2 #descendants3 #umaparty #descendantsparty #kidsbirthdayparty #girlsbirthday

Sometimes you have to do what you need to do, to do what you want to do. I have to remind myself of this daily these days. For the moments in between, we keep our style on lock and the music really, really loud...Unless it’s a Disney soundtrack that your kids are forcing you to listen to- in that case, good luck mamma!

My husband says I'm ruining the new Drake @champagnepapi song. Find out why in the latest post on the blog! Click link in profile! #niceforwhat #moodmusic #issafriday #drake #weekendmode

My #teacherstyle has certainly changed over the years. It is not unlikely for me to wear a kimono or something with a little shimmy in it to work. The kids gotta learn that personal style is important at some point, right ? 😩😂I have a friend who works at a school where it is mandatory for teachers to wear shirts with collars and hosiery everyday. Ummmmmmm, I’m going to need some google analytics proving that’s necessary because the way my sneaker and skirt game is set up.... #GFSstyles



I am unable to really post daily outfits but click the “Teacher Style” icon in my highlights to see what I am wearing. I usually try to make a little morning video every morning! Does your job have a disagreeable dress code? #blackmomsblog #style #houstonblogger #teachersofig

Happy #nationalsiblingsday ! Did you know that I’m the middle child of 5? (My oldest brother not pictured) We have a sibling group chat where we communicate mostly in memes and emojis. Except my sister, she can’t figure out how to create memes and none of us will help her 😂😂😂
