So growing up in the south my whole life, I love good food and it’s the key to my heart. The only thing is, even though it taste delicious, that deep fried, cheesy, smothered goodness wasn’t good for me and I began to feel the effects of it. I completely cut out all dairy, poultry and red meats from my diet and let me just say, it was the best decision for me and my body. I feel more energized and I sleep better. I also cut out fast food and try to cook every night (which saves me money). Thankfully, I’ve learned how to make healthy meals that taste bomb, check out my favorite recipe below!

I’ve spent years trying to change my mindset and perception of how the world worked, because the old way just wasn’t working for me. A couple of life events, positive and negative, have somehow lead me to almost everything I needed to know spiritually and I feel better. No two souls, energies or vibes are the exact same, maybe similar, but not the same. Basically, we all walk around with unique energies that vibrate outward and if you’re familiar with karma, you know that what you put out comes back to you. So, if you want to live a genuine good life (not faking it for your peers) you have to start with high vibrations for better results. It is also important to know that once you start vibrating higher you might walk away or distance yourself from a lot of people, places or things, that you didn’t realize before, weren’t serving you. For example, most of us know a couple of people that have a “bad energy” about them and it doesn’t matter how much money they have, how they look or who they know. Every time you get around them something just feels off and that is because they are vibrating at a low level, or this could be you☕. That is the exact energy you should avoid being around, because it starts to take a toll on you and no one has time for the bad energies or negative vibes from other trolls rubbing off on them. When you eventually get to that place of high vibrations everything will feel like it’s falling into place and every single thing you’re seeking … will find you. You just have to be committed to the journey.

So like I have said plenty of times before, I am all about discounts and saving money. No matter how much money I have in my bank account, I will always bargain shop because … 🤷🏽♀️why not? I drove by this cute little shopping center the other day and had to stop because it had a Nordstrom Rack, HomeGoods and Marshalls all next to one another. Of course, I had to do some retail therapy and I did a mini shopping haul. Before I talk about the things I bought, I just want to share my love for discount stores. For those of you who do not know what discount stores are, they are just that, merchandise (usually name brand), that is sold at a cheaper price at a store. If you love discount stores just as much as I do, comment below and tell me your favorite store (i’m always looking for new ones).

So I recently got this strong urge to switch up my look a bit. I’ve been natural my entire life and either I wore my hair curly or straight. Whenever I would see people with braids, I would always low-key want some, but I never thought I could pull it off. One night I was in my bed on Pinterest pinning hairstyles to my ‘hair’ board and it was a done deal, I decided I was getting box braids. Luckily, I was able to get them done for ‘the free’ because my mom did them, might I add that my head was so sore afterwards like omg! I’m on this journey to grow my natural hair longer and this is the perfect hairstyle for that, so I plan to keep them in for about three weeks and there should be about an inch or two of new growth, which i’m excited about because who doesn’t want their hair to grow? Check out my braid growth regimen below: Continue reading Grow Your Hair With Box Braids
So I just recently got into the ‘Flaxseed movement’ and I must say, I think I made the right choice. So many other natural hair youtubers have done videos on how to make your own flaxseed gel, for example Naptural85
and they seem to love it, they also have two totally different curly hair textures, so it goes to show just how versatile the gel is. I have been using ecostyler gel for years, but I would like to use something more natural to lay and slay my hair/edges. I did use flaxseed gel to lay my edges and put my hair in a bun, which put it to the ultimate test. I was shook nonetheless … at how smooth it laid my hair. It is also very inexpensive, I purchased a bag of Organic Flaxseeds from Marshalls for $3.99. Now this isn’t a strong hold, which I like because ecostyler would make my hair feel crunchy and hard after awhile and it also tames the frizz, so you’ll be good. Below are the steps I used to make my own DIY Flaxseed Hair Gel and the benefits I noticed.
