    I bought somethings & learned somethings

    Its July 3rd! This months first blog is about this healthy eating journey I’m trying to be on. So I have began to only eat grass feed and organic food. I shop mostly at Whole Foods now ( although its really expensive) . As you can tell I purchased organic bananas and apples and other fruits. I even tried this coconut almond chocolate Gelato for my kids and they enjoyed it. I have not been able to rid myself of bacon so I got lucky and found organic bacon at wholefoods. I cooked it with eggs and toast. It had a weird after taste but I guess that is something…

    Healthy Eating

    Hi everyone! hope everyone is recovering from the last few weeks trauma. Today’s blog post I want to get on minds on something I less traumatic and maybe help others change their lifestyle. Since January I have been talking about being a pescatarian, but I soon realized that it was something I just could not do. I love my beef and chicken and I didn’t truly want to let my favorite food go, so I started to research healthier types/forms of meat that I could begin to eat that was still healthy for me. I spoke a friend who told me about Grass fed beef and organic chicken. So went…

    We All We Got

    Sista’s and Brotha’s how yall feelin?! This blog post is more geared towards my people of African decent. Over the last couple of weeks my people have been dealing with the death Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. I personally have been going through the emotional roller coaster of dealing with all this trauma. Protesting, marching, posting and talking about these issues became draining. I had headaches and my body was hurting from the physical toll I was placing on my body. My legs, head, feet, back just everything. I cried for almost a week straight because I was sad and overwhelmed with everything that was happening. I stopped…

    South Carolina

    Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week. Living in these uncertain times can cause children especially to be stir crazy. We live in a two bedroom apartment and there happens to be no playground area. You can imagine how crazy the kids get when they can go outside to play. we take walks sometime but its nothing like running free and playing with other kids as well. So I called my cousin and we agreed that I would come down to visit her in South Carolina so the kids can have each for a little while. all the kiddos playing in the kiddy pool. During this road…

    Mommy Pouch

    Hello Everyone! I hope all is going well for everyone. During this time I even more focused on self and all the things that I want to achieve and become. One of the things I’m focusing on is self love. I’ve talked a lot about the spiritual aspect of self love and also loving your self enough to set boundaries from toxic people. But I want to talk about another form of self love, and that is body positivity. We mommy’s know what it is like first hand to watch our body’s change during the baking or our babies and after we give birth. So many people shove ideas about…

    Therapy

    Hello everyone! I hope all is well. Apart of me writing this blog is for complete openness and the ability to vent without judgement. With that being said I have not had a good couple of days. I have a bad headache, I have been dealing with some toxicity and I just decided to be extremely alone right now. I only talking to a few people here and there but that is it. My anxiety pops up right when I think I am perfectly fine and my family happens to be my trigger. Isolating myself right now is the best thing for me. I have not worked out in about…

Being stuck in the house after a while can be frustrating but I decided to focus on self care.

The first positive habit I began is Spiritual, I began praying first thing in the morning. I find talking to God before I get my day started has somehow comforted my spirit more and more everyday. I meditate after…

    Coffee Diaries

    Good Morning! I hope everyone is keeping their mental health intact during these difficult times. I know I’m going stir crazy. one day I’m writing, the next sleeping and after that binge watching my favorite shows. Not to mention I always catch myself scrolling through the gram or commenting to post on Facebook. Isolation can be a lot for most people. I know for me its not even about going out ( even tho I do have plans this coming month and this summer that I’m praying I can still do) but its about being around the people I care about. being able to go to my friends house or…

I fix at least two meals a day for my kiddos. For myself a few…

    5 Virtual Field Trips

    Hello Everyone! The last time we spoke the world was definitely in a different place. We were able to gather with friends and family, go to the malls, parks and events. Have our weddings and concerts, but now with the Covid-19 outbreak we have been stripped or our normal lives. One of those things was work and school. Now if your like me (which you probably are) you have been in self containment or quarantined for the past month and honestly things don’t look like they are changing soon. Now mommies and daddies this means that our precious babies are not at school we are home schooling. Teachers are doing…
