Girls Night Out At Butcher & Bee

Girls Night Out At Butcher & Bee

It's like the universe knew I needed a girls' night out full of great eats, laughter, and love. It was an intense first week of being back to school and I needed that mid-week picker uper. After a group text from my girls, with time and location, I was ready to head out to Butcher [...]

The Continuous Journey Of Becoming

The Continuous Journey Of Becoming

I remember like it was yesterday sitting across from a man I once knew when he uttered the words, "I want to start life over; I don't want this." In that moment my heart dropped and my world shattered. In that moment I knew I had to become someone different. A few weeks later, I [...]

Hey Sis,

Hey Sis,

Pull up a chair grab your tea and let's chat. Today I'm sharing my heart because it's been burning inside of me for quite so long. After having multiple conversations surrounding this topic I decided it's time. Time to clear the air and just clear my heart. You ever had this unsettling feeling of something [...]

Plantain Lasanga

Plantain Lasanga

Plantain lasagna is better known as Pastelon. This dish originates from Puerto Rico and is a casserole dish similar to Italian lasagna. The meal is layered with sweet plantains, ground beef, tomato-based sauce, and cheese. I'm not a fan of ground beef so I swapped the beef for beans. Check out my revamped recipe below. [...]

Ten Things To Do During Quarantine

Ten Things To Do During Quarantine

As most of the world lets up I'm still staying in. It's crazy to think that just yesterday we were living lives per usual going to work, spending time with family, attending church services, and shopping.

My Groupon Steals

My Groupon Steals

Most recently I went browsing on Groupon and stumbled upon a great steal. Groupon is known for deals but to me this was a huge steal especially for jewelry. Living in the south I've noticed rocking your monogrammed initials is a big trend. Thanks to Groupon I'm "#trending" as the youngins say. Finally I have [...]

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality

The reality is in these times we are all tuned in virtually. The world wide web has never been so widely used in the history of its time than now. My reality is that during these past few months I've gained my "quarantine fifteen." In all honesty, I probably haven't gained an extra fifteen pounds. [...]

Valentines Day Looks

Valentines Day Looks

I Combed Out My Locs

I Combed Out My Locs

Two months in to this journey and I quit!! I quit listening to others and listened to my gut! There is a saying that goes "if you did it right the first time you wouldn't have to start over." So true in every area of life; for me it's this loc journey. I knew from [...]
