The Year 2017

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great holiday season. This was my first time having to work and not be able to spend time with my family cyah happen again lol (means: I have no intentions on doing this again). We are a few days away from a new year so thought I’d do a year in review post. In the first half of the year I had already deemed 2017 to be trash simply because it started off bittersweet and things weren’t going as planned but I had to shake that negativity off real quick.

Before I continue to tell you about how my 2017 was, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to you all. I can’t thank you all enough for rocking with me these last six months. Thanks to each and everyone of you for taking the time out of your busy lives week after week to read, comment, and share my blog posts.

Christmas Gift For Nursing Students. 

Christmas is right around the corner(a week to be exact) and I’m sure many of you are like me  squandering to buy last minute gifts (procrastination really is my middle name). No worries I’m here to help. I came up with a short list of things you can get the nursing student, nurse or healthcare professional in your life for Christmas. If they’re a little like me in any way, keep in mind a little goes a long way. I know for me I’m satisfied with a handwritten note, showing a little appreciation is all we need, after all school is no Joke and working in the healthcare field is no easy fete.

Let me stop blabbing (as if we’re not late already) get to the list I created. Some of these I don’t own and are on my personal wishlist (family take note ) but I also think any of theses would be ideal for you guys.Read More »

Sunshine Blogging Award Nominee

Hey my darlings, this weekend marked the 6 months anniversary of All About The Scrub Life. This journey has been an amazing experience thus far and I look forward to seeing where the next few months takes us. Once again I want to express my sincerest gratitude to all my supporters. This which was once a dream is now a reality.

In the short time that I have been a  blogger, I’ve had the opportunity of connecting with so many bloggers whether on a small or large scale, anyways to my surprise almost a month ago I received a message from one of my blogging sister Ashleigh over at thesilencedwoman saying that she nominated me for a sunshine blogging award (raeeeeeeeeee) I was super excited and I immediately messaged one of my blogging friends/ fellow island gal to tell her the news, to which she said it was something special and I should do it. As usual life always gets the better of me and I kept putting it off. I am truly elated to accept this award.  Truth be told I can’t recall being nominated for anything in recent times, so this is major for me ( praise dances).

You may be wondering what is the sunshine blogging award, at first I didn’t know either but I can recall seeing it on my timeline. It is basically an award that aids in getting small bloggers recognition from other small bloggers, after all we must stick together and help each other climb to the top, there’s plenty of room for us all at the top.Read More »

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 »
