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…

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…

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…

Welcome to the Second Half of the Year!

It’s July 1 and that means we are officially done with he first half of the year. I can’t believe it is already July. Felt like just yesterday was December 31. I’m so excited about the second half of the year and all that I have accomplished. I’ve paid off some debts, passed my teacher…

Proclaim Professional Care: Review and Wash Day Routine

I am not a product junkie, therefore I don’t typically go out and buy products for my hair. I normally use the Aussie Mega Moist shampoo and conditioner and pre-poo my hair with coconut oil the night before. However, I have been binge watching wash day routines and figured it was maybe time to change…

The Perfect Mate

I had quite an interesting conversation with a friend earlier today, a very close guy friend. He made me realize something about the kind of man I should be with. Aside from him being black, vegan, pro-black, conscious and plays no games, I also need someone who suits me, someone who is just as big…

Social Media: Relationships (Platonic and Romantic)

I temporarily disabled my account today on IG to really evaluate what I want my page to be about and what I want to share with people. I don’t really share things in my personal life. It seems as of lately that so many people I come across on social media, take it seriously. I’ll…

Detox Day 5 and Final Thoughts

Friday was my last day of my detox and I got so busy preparing for Saturday that I forgot to post. I broke my fast that morning with my chia seed pudding. It was amazing. I made hemp milk for the first time and it went amazingly in my pudding. For lunch I had guacamole…

Day 4 Detox

This morning I was super hungry but I had my smoothie and went about my business. I had a second smoothie for lunch and then for dinner my last juice. Did not experience strong bowel movements, kind of back to normal. I will be easing off my fast tomorrow starting with chia seed pudding. The…

Detox Day 3

Morning: for whatever reason I woke up at midnight. I went to sleep at 8:30 and woke up at midnight, wide awake. I stayed up until about 3:30 then went to sleep. When I woke up at 5:15 and felt groggy. I drank a juice and took my chlorella and spirulina. Again, like yesterday and…

Detox Day 2

Morning: I woke up with a slight tickle in my throat and sneezed throughout the morning. Not sure if that’s a side effect but whatever. I feel like I’m on cloud 9 right now, as if I’ve smoked some good marijuana, and I’ve never smoked a day in my life. I feel less irritable and…

Detox Day 1

Morning: When I woke up, I began drinking my first juice, taking my chlorella and spirulina tablets. I got an instant boost of energy. My juice contained kale, spinach, Swiss chard, rutabaga, cucumbers, apples, moringa, and black walnut oil. I had had a bowel movement before drinking the juice. I drank it throughout getting ready,…

Still in Love with His Ex

I was talking to this guy for a few months and things were pretty good. When we first started talking, he told me everything up front. He and the mother of his kids had been broken up for a while, but she finally told him that she was going to see other people and was…

Money in Relationships

A while back, someone I follow on IG made a post about why men don’t take women on dates. Now he had some great points, I will admit, but it also brought up another topic that has been on my mind. In my past relationships, I have always been broke. Relationships can be expensive if…

A Matrimonious Affair

Last Friday, January 6, 2017, I watched a dear friend of mine get married. It was a beautiful wedding and such a fun time. She looked absolutely gorgeous and her groom, very dapper. The wedding party was large but they all looked beautiful. Her colors were real and black. The reception was nice as well…

My 15 Expectations of 2017

I made a video on my goals for 2017-2019.  So now I want to go year by year and we are going to start with 2017, which begins tomorrow. With 2016 coming to an end, I’ve been reflecting on all of the things that the year has brought me. I got my first apartment and…

What I Learned in 2016

Here are some things I learned this past year: Good things take time. I got an apartment and a new job. I have been speaking these things into the universe for years and they came within two months of each other. I found out what friendship really meant. I have a handful of good friends…

2016 has been a great year

Around this time last year I did not think that I would be where I’m at in my life now. Last year this time I was: -living paycheck to paycheck -had a negative balance -working as a substitute teacher -couldn’t pay all my bills -living at home -depressed -unhappy I was a lot more things…

Lunch at Sunshine’s Vegetarian Deli

Since this is the week of Thanksgiving, and I’m a teacher, I have the week off to enjoy with friends and family that I don’t normally get to see and spend time with. Yesterday, I went to Sunshine’s Vegetarian Deli with Jazzie. I hadn’t seen her in almost forever, so it was due time. We…

My Grandmother’s Wedding

Yesterday my grandmother got married and she was the most beautiful bride. I am so happy for her. I ran the music for the wedding which was a tad stressful seeing as how I did not know I was until the day before. But it ended up running smoothly. It wasn’t too big or too…
