In The Kitchen: Pumpkin Soup

Hey guys, I know we’re all busy with life, some of us are in school, working and just trying to get our life all the way together. I know it can get really hard at times just trying to keep up with our already busy lives and also having to think about eating at least 2 square meals a day. But no matter how busy our lives may get we all need to be nourishing our bodies not to mention the fueling of our brains.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal after a long day, this pumpkin soup is where it’s at y’all. I recently made this one night after a long day of both class and work and after having a sudden craving for pumpkin soup(ladies you know we crave the strangest things when it’s that time). This is very simple to make and you can add anything you desire to complement it.Read More »

Happy Halloween!

Now I’m from the Islands where Halloween is not that much of a big deal, it’s not really part of our culture, so growing up I wasn’t exposed to it as much. The most I would do is watch Halloween movies on the Disney channel (I still do every year lol). If I’m honest, I’ve been living here in the US for 8 years and I’ve never taken the time out to fully understand the significance of Halloween. I do have an idea however, it seems like in this day and age Halloween is all about dressing up in costumes and of course slaying the different makeup looks. I’m all the way here for the fashion part of Halloween, could I dress up fancy like I’ve seen others? I’m sure I can but the way my patience is set up, Issa no! Hahahaha!Read More »

Are We Practicing What We Preach?

We’ve all seen the memes and the many posts on social media about protecting your energy or peace, but let’s be real how many of us are actually practicing what we’re preaching? It’s so easy to catch on to trends these days, everybody wanna be “woke” or “deep”. I too was one of those people who would tweet “I’m all about protecting my peace” but little did I know those were just words and there wasn’t any action to back up my claims. Let’s be real, how many of us truly know what it means to protect our peace and energy? It took me a while to fully understand and learn what it truly meant to protect my peace (still learning). I’ve had my moments where I know for a fact I was putting my negative energy onto others. I’ve had my moments of being negative Nancy and did some things to others I’m not proud of but thank God for growth. Read More »

AfroPunk Atlanta

Hey guys I know it hasn’t been 2 seconds since my Miami trip but your girl got the chance to attend Afropunk Atlanta last weekend(look at me, living life 2 weekends in a row lol). I’ve heard about Afropunk before but never attended so it was only right that once I heard there was one to be held in Atlanta, I just had to be there. For those not familiar with what Afropunk is, it is a festival that basically celebrates Black Excellence through art, film and music.

 Girls Trip: Miami Edition 

Ever felt like you’ve been constantly going and life is passing you by? Well that’s how I’ve been feeling recently, unfortunately.  I haven’t had a break since 2017 started to put that into perspective for you, we’re ten months into 2017. It’s so common for us to say we need a break but often times end up not taking one(life always gets the best of us). Anyways let me stop blabbing about my oh so busy life and talk about the break I finally got to take….

 In The Kitchen: Banana Fritters 

Hey Guys! It’s been a while since I’ve been in the kitchen, but I’m back with another recipe I whipped up the other day. Banana Fritters or pancakes as some may call it, is the choice. I have an obsession with Banana fritters it’s the only reason I buy bananas at the supermarket if I’m being honest. This is a very simple recipe and can be eaten any time such as a for breakfast, lunch, dinner and just as a snack. For me I mainly use it for breakfast and usually make enough so that I can have for a snack throughout the day and sometimes it rolls into dinner whenever I’m too lazy to actually make dinner lol. The recipe is as follows:

Fall TV Is Back!

I know most of you guys are excited for the fall season because of the fashion and change of weather but for me I’m excited for fall because of the fall TV shows. I’m a self declared TV junkie, I watch almost EVERY show there is. I suck at time management and I have been trying to improve this skill, but for some reason when it comes to my TV shows I seem to manage that time really well (I know, I know I need to get it together lol). Watching TV is one of the ways I entertain myself, some shows are just really addicting. I know it can be very overwhelming when trying to find a show to watch but have no fear, the TV junkie is here to help. I’m going to list some of my favorite shows to watch and the new ones I’ll pick up this fall. For me it’s very important to find a show that’s going to catch my attention or as my friend Gigi and I like to say “pull me in.” I’m only going to list a few, if I were to list all the shows I watch, this will be a very longgggg post. In another life, my true calling would be to lay around all day in my PJ’s and watch all the shows in the world lolol.
