Monday Motivation

I was talking to my cousin on Saturday about the goals I had written down in 2016, that had come to fruition in 2017. As I was talking about my goals, she started talking about some things that she had written down that came true, and she then realized that she had been writing down…

It’s Beginning to Feel a lot like Fall

  It is finally September (1 month and 5 days until I am 29!), and the leaves are changing, as is the weather. Pumpkin spice everything is filling store shelves, and the air. Fall has always been my favorite time of year in Houston, simply because we actually have Fall weather. Aside from Summer, we…

Financial Check and Update!!

If you have been following me for a while, then you know I am on a journey to financial freedom, and I have been doing a damn good job. I have paid off so much debt since 2015 and I am happy that I am now in the place that I want to be –…

Harvey, No, Not Steve

Living in Houston, or Texas for that matter, hurricanes and tornadoes are inevitable. This past weekend, we experienced hurricane Harvey. What started as a tropical storm, turned into something catastrophic for many. At landfall it had strengthened to a category 4 hurricane and ripped through Corpus Christi and stalled over San Antonio and Austin. It…

My Spirituality

I think back on the days as a child going to church every Wednesday and Sunday, going to bible study, vacation bible school and everything else that meant having to go to church. Growing up in a Black household, majority of us did not have a choice in whether or not we went to church….

Ruffles Green

Before I tell you about my experience here, let me just say that the best part of eating out as a vegan at a non vegan restaurant, is that your food comes out fast and is prepared fresh. Now this restaurant is located in The Woodlands and if anyone knows the area, you know its…

Trap Yoga

This was probably the best yoga experience I have ever had.  Trap  music and yoga? It gets no better than that!!  Trap Yoga Bae, Britteney, was freaking amazing. We started with Bodak Yellow by Cardi B and ended with Rake It Ip by Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj​​​. I have a ratchet side that I…

Baba Yega

My friend Jazzie told me about this place months ago and I’m not sure why I am just now getting around to it and I could kick myself for it. It’s located off Montrose and it’s a nice little restaurant. It kind of has seating for everyone. They have the inside area that looks more…

Tout Suite’s Vegan Falafel Sandwich

The best way to get repeat vegan customers to a non vegan restaurant is to have vegan options on the menu, actual vegan options, not salads. A lot of non vegan restaurants think that a way to serve vegans is to have salads. I’m here to tell you that’s more of an insult if anything. …

Nourish Juice Bar

Located off W Gray, this juice bar is so amazing and I love the atmosphere. I had been there once before. I ordered the Pink Starbust juice and a Buddha bowl. Both were absolutely amazing. The juice really tasted like candy and the kick from the ginger was perfect.  The Buddha bowl was a curry…

Vegan Tamales and Cupcakes @ Dan Electro’s

I don’t typically go into Houston that often because I hate the traffic and it’s a helluva commute but when I saw this event was in The Heights, and that’s fairly close to me, I was down.  It’s located off 24th street and it’s a fairly small venue with a backyard patio. I actually only…

Top Staple Foods For Vegan Newbies

When I became vegan, I did not know what I was doing and I wish I had this list for when I went vegan. So I am making this to help my fellow vegan newbies. These are foods that I have in my house at all times.  Grains: Rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet, oats Proteins: Beans…

Self – Love Sunday: Live in Your Purpose

“It’s not that the things and opportunities that we want in life don’t exist yet. It’s that we’re not yet aware of their existence (or the fact that we can really have them).” – Jen Sincero You are a Badass Did the quote above hit home or did it confuse you? When I came across…

Snooze A.M. Eatery

I am apart of a group called Awkward Black Ladies on Facebook and one of the ladies, Ashley, posted about going to brunch. I’ve never gone to brunch before because there aren’t any places I know of that serve a vegan brunch, or vegan breakfast period, in Houston. So I responded anyway because 1). I want…

Tout Suite HTX

I stumbled upon this place on Instagram from someone I followed. They were listed as a suggestion. I saw all the pictures on their page and knew I had to check them out. Once I got here, I could tell it was it by the white and black building and their symbol on the doors….

My Trip to Austin, Tx | June 23-25

This past weekend I did a mini tour of Austin’s vegan scene. I had an amazing time. I have made several posts on the things I did, but I wanted to come on here and make a compilation post. I will also be linking to each individual post.   The first thing I did when…
