What motivates you?  Sometimes when I take a step back and look at the daily challenges we all face - as adults, as parents, as women, as people of color - it is amazing that we can all even get out of bed in the morning!  I've always felt like a pretty self-motivated person, with a "type A" personality, but even for me - it is difficult to feel motivated EVERY DAY.  That's why I rely on a few different sources of motivation.  First and foremost is my faith in God.  Faith in a higher power has helped me climb mountains and overcome obstacles that I never imagined I could.  Secondly, is motivation to spend quality time with family and friends.  I absolutely LIVE for a fun Orlando vacation with my family!  But...vacations aren't cheap.  In fact, nothing is cheap these days, so my third source of motivation is to Secure the Bag.  While having the drive to succeed is important, I've also learned that sometimes I have to take time to relax and become "unmotivated".  I recently started taking yoga classes again, because I realized I was pushing myself too hard and needed to spend more time meditating and stretching to release tension.  I hope that you all are able to stay motivated while taking time out for yourselves to de-compress.  This month’s newsletter is dedicated to all of YOU who motivate us at the UnFrumpyMommyStore, and helping you find your source of motivation.
XOXO - Tan

Hi Tan & Eric!

I wanted to send a note and say THANK YOU for the Pink Package Shoulout! I was tickled PINK to see my name on the screen! I attached a pic of the shirt from my first order...I knew this would probably look like my first order because I recently moved. My first order was at my previous address. So this most recent order is actually my second - but won't be my last. ERIKA C.

This is Amy H from Owensboro, Ky. I just wanted to take a second to say thank you so much for what you do share of your life. In a world of craziness, its refreshing to see a beautiful couple and family that are a representation of doing it right and are clearly blessed.
Big fan of home decor is what drew me to the channel seem to be great people and inspirational is why I stay no matter the subject.

In response to my first order and Pink package shout out. We have never been to Disney my daughter (preteen) wanted a shirt also and that was her pick, (the LV Mickey shirt )and I chose the CC. Thank you for the fast shipping, care in wrapping the shirts and appreciate the socks and confetti. Little touches and details matter.

Thanks again be safe and blessings. AMY H

Great afternoon Tan I came home to the pink package outside my door and I started dancing lol, have the very best day. F. WILLIAMS

Need some motivation to do some Spring cleaning?  Check out some of Tan's "Clean With Me" videos...




  Bring all the loveliness of a Spring garden inside with Meyer's Cleaning products that are thoughtfully formulated with plant-derived ingredients and essential oils. One of my personal Mrs. Meyer's favorites is the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Kitchen Basics Set (Acorn Spice).
How did we clean floors before Swiffers?  I personally think the Swiffer is the greatest invention since sliced bread! I use both types of Swiffers (Wet Jet and dry) on each floor of my home!
The Swiffer Wet Jet  is AMAZING and a great alternative to mopping the floor.
As much as I love my Swiffers, sometimes you just have to mop the floor.  The O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Spin Mop, Bucket Floor Cleaning System is a great system to clean your floors without breaking your back or the bank!
What would mopping be without a little bit of Lavender Fabuloso All Purpose Cleaner for Floors and Kitchens to add that fresh, clean Spring smell to your home?
I absolutely LOVE the smell of lavender in my home.  This Method All Purpose Cleaner, French Lavender (in a single pack or pack of eight) is a great compliment to the Fabuloso lavender cleaner! 
To save my nails and hands, I always make sure to wear a good pair of gloves when I clean.
Spring cleaning is about more than dusting, vacuuming and laundry.  It's tax time!  It's also a good time of the year to clean out our files, junk drawers, mail, etc.  This Amazon Basics 6-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper and Credit Card Home Office Shredder is a great choice for shredding your paperwork securely and efficiently!
This Glade Carpet and Room, Hawaiian Breeze always takes me back to my favorite Hawaiian vacation memories.
Clorox ToiletWand is the best way to clean dirty toilets for germaphobes like me, who don't want a dirty toilet brush lying around their home!

One way to stay motivated is to follow someone who motivates you on a daily basis.  It can be a social media influencer, celebrity, athlete, family member, friend, etc.  It should be someone you relate to and that radiates positivity.  One of my personal faves has always been Tina Turner.  While she's always been a favorite of mine, her recent HBO documentary, TINAmade me admire her even more!  Be sure to checkout this inspiring documentary and check-out the UnFrumpyPride collection for inspirational looks featuring your favorite iconic celebrities!
