Cheers To Good Health

Lean Green Smoothie. Spinach, Kale, Pineapple, Oranges, topped with Chia seeds . Yum! Here is my story.ย  Smoothies always make me feel alive. I can talk about them for hours.ย 

In June 2020, I was hospitalized when I used to have low blood cells. I nearly died and God showed out for me leading me to the right connections and better healthy choices internally. Ever since then, I have been hooked on leafy greens and plants; they have changed my life and so many things lol

My passion with good health was always about working out but when you learn more about how foods can heal, you become obsessed and healthier. I left my banking job and just didn’t feel like it was me; realizing I was just there for the wrong reason. I’m now with a science lab where I am able to help people fight colon cancer and have good health.ย 

When I would have stressful days working for a bank and feeling like a machine I was able to lower blood pressure because of yoga- in which I later received my yoga teacher certification because of that lol Sometimes negative things can become positive things that can lead to a blessing in disguise. Your passion. โคย  Cheers to your good health!

Godly Green Smoothie


Since I am now a certified yoga instructor and work for a science lab to help people with colon cancer testing, the deeper studies of healthy food intrigues me. It’s amazing how God is so smart, that He put the medicine in the plants for us.

This smoothie was decided when the only fruits and veggies I had left in the house were spinach, Kale and pineapples. I usually will add strawberries in my smoothie but to my surprise the items I had tasted EVEN better. I was also interested in the benefits of the nutrients of each. I thonk Continue to read below for some of the positive uses and you can even research more but this was just some of the uses that stood out to me.
*** Ingredients: 1 cup of spinach Kale mix and 1 cup of pineapple.l and 1/2 cup of almond milk.

***Spinach is good for digestion, healthy skin, immunune system, blood circulation and iron. It’s good for the heart..
***Kale- Kale helps lower cholesterol and fights off cancer.. Did you know it boosts your fertility and immune as well?
***Pineapple helps with joints, prevents cancer, arthritis and is also good with any irritable bowl syndrome.

Get The Look

If anyone loves makeup and gets excited about makeup and shopping then it would have to be me because it’s fun and girly. lol I wish CoverGirl Queen Collection was still in Walmart because it was always my go to but it got played out. Fenty cosmetics is one of my favorites so I’ll be ordering again. I am wearing Milani Cosmetics liquid concealer foundation and Black Radiance right now which is good quality and good price. I contoured/highlighted with Juvia’s Place eyeshadow pallet, you can find it at Ulta. It has actually been a year since I’ve arched my brows so thanks for good brow pencil and eyeliner. The lipstick is Sunburst by MaryKay and lined with MAC chocolate lipliner. The eyeshadow is a blend of orange brown and tan since we are in the last days left of autumn

I Finally Told My BFF To Be My Valentine And He Said…YES

With Valentine’s Day approaching sometimes Cupid starts to point his arrow at some of the most surprising targets. Some of us will spend this day saying it’s no big deal (bc it isn’t) some of us will enjoy it with a bucket of ice cream and a LMN movie while others will go all out celebrating it with someone we love (rather it be a loving partner, a date, family or our girlfriends) …

Well, after a month of dropping hints, I finally told my best friend of nearly 10 years that I wanted him to be my Valentine and he agreed… Things seem old fashioned and that’s what I like about him. He has always been there for me and this will be my 2nd ever Valentine’s EVER. So I would be more than honored to celebrate it with no one other than one of the closest friends in my life that I trust.. lol

He always gives me and my mom the best advice๐Ÿ˜Š What’s funny is that we’re born 1 month and 1 day apart..same life path numbers. .twin flames.. lol  As soon as he said “sure babe.”  I got nervous ๐Ÿ˜ฉ not sure why when he’s HIM… He’s been through so many things with me and so I have with him.

Lol kinda wanna change my mind bc I am still in relax mode after my final iron transfusion last week lol So I dont wanna get cute or do much right now  ๐Ÿ˜‚

but he says “I’m sure you’re gorgeous, babe”… lol ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ Now I can’t back out lol We’ll just enjoy pizza and laugh at things as usual. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Virtual amidst covid perhaps. He’s my best friend and that’s all that matters.

Good Doctors Are Hard To Find…They’re Angels in Scrubs

One of my doctors was so touched today when I went for my follow up appointment. She thanked me for the thank you card and she said that simple cards like that to healthcare workers means so much more to them than just money a lot of  times… She said she was taking photos of my card and showing the staff. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I talk so fast around her when trying to tell so much because we have a little bit of time at appointments but a lot to say lol She has become like a second sister. …My story about how I had prayed for countless months to be healed and how my spirit led me to her.. (the only doctor after 6 months of 2 previous opinions) I am a black woman with Creole descent and so is she. Sadly I thought the reason other doctors didn’t take my situation serious was because I was in the minority and when I choose her she could relate. ..bc this is also something that was common in African American women. She  knew how to permanently stop the reason for my loss of blood cells with a simple solution that had saved my future and my future generation.

It was so inspiring; to her, myself and a few others I shared that part of my life with..

I won’t reveal her name yet until I am ready to one day tell everything I went through…the entire story! One day I will tell of this full blessed testimony of how God can lead you to the right people in life to help with you with things that seemed impossiable and when others said no…even when it took 3 opinions like it did with me ๐Ÿ˜Š..as of now I am thankful, overwhelmed and happy. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you Dr. G.S.

Jealous Ones Still Envy

I overheard a woman saying that Godly people can’t envy lol I wanted to remind her the story I remembered from my bible study group days of how a God fearing king named King Saul had such envy for a sheppard boy named David who praised him and admired him..

David did so much to assist him in the palace while admiringโ€ฆyet King Saul was jealous of him..envied him for being closer to God and tried to kill him lol People can sometimes envy your relationship with God.

I was shocked when I found that out as a teenager..my aunt used to explain that to us. They can have everything in life- lots of money, fancy cars, a happy marriage, a family, an education, talent- and yet STILL envy othersโ€ฆeven envy those that are inspired by them. Don’t be blinded.

Remain faithful to doing good on earth and doing the right thing. Your light will shine to God as long as you are focused and balanced with self.

Girls Trip Planning.. Miami 2021 HERE I COME

So I have decided to go on an all girls trip/spa retreat in Miami with some ladies I met from Facebook groups for women in need of making other female friends. That sounds desperate, no? but I love this group and I really bond and click with these other girls. I’ve always wanted to go on a girls trip, but no chics have asked to travel with me. I sure don’t want to travel alone when I go on my getaway trips for my regular me-time. As you have noticed, I don’t really have as many close girlfriends. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ lol The only one I am close to is married and I know she has other responsibilities and such, which I humbly respect. (love her..) The other few close friends I have are 2 guys and how would I be able to enjoy doing girly things with them? lol.

I’ve always wanted to have a group of girlfriends like on The Golden Girls or Waiting Exhale, where we can laugh and enjoy the physical view of life on earth…TOGETHER. I want to be on Miami beach taking selfies with a group of girlfriends and making memories. ๐Ÿ™‚ Some women have asked to do things with me were women that had a history of being mean/petty towards or just wanted to know my information on things…so I wouldn’t want any awkward feelings. Sometimes finding your tribe is hard though. It would just be nice to have a group that doesn’t act as if I did something wrong or serve me with attitude for no reason or use me. I know these new friends and I will hit it off when we explore Miami together. I CAN’T WAIT! I really am looking forward to this trip because it is definitely needed. I can hear the sound of the beach music down the street and I can smell the coconut drinks at the tiki bar. We’ll have to shop at the mall (Dolphin Mall) and the boutiques in the plaza as we laugh along our way. CAN’T WAIT! CAN’T WAIT!

6 Surprising Things That I’ve Experienced In 2020!!

2020 has been a total shock for some of us and things happened that caught us off guard. Perhaps since the era of the year changed, that was a bomb that landed on our heads. ๐Ÿ˜‚ This pandemic and the longest election ever has made this year one of the strangest years drizzled in what the hell moments lol but I still had an overall good year. The year isn’t over yet though. Here are some of the BIG things that caught me off guard ๐Ÿ˜‚

  1. So my dog howls when I mention the name of his dog buddies. ๐Ÿ• I’ve never heard him howl before! I thought it was only a wild wolf thing. ๐Ÿค” I took him to visit one of his pals from the old neighborhood and he was pleased.
  2. My best friend and I flirt A LOT now โ€ฆnearly a decade later and  BOOM where are all these weird feelings coming from that we don’t understand?โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ’.. lol ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Notโ€ฆhim. phew TOTALLY UNEXPECTANT. We both had to stop each other from flirting yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I needed to go to my safe place and meditate ๐Ÿ˜Š Gosh, him?  lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚ now my heart is beating. phew
  3. I gave up coffee months ago. I know, I don’t see how I did it but consuming coffee so much slacks up your routine. I had to let that habit go because I was totally dependent on it.. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ (refer to a previous blog discussing this dilemma lol.)
  4. One of my dead plants from the summer started back blooming. I thought it was dead from all that heat this summer..I left it alone for months, but just like Lazarus, it rose from the dead.  ๐Ÿ˜‚  ๐Ÿฅ€๐ŸŒน It’s blooming yellow and I take it as a sign of renewal. I’ll rename it Lazarus lol
  5. I got a blood transfusion over the summer while in the hospital.. bc I’m anemic ๐Ÿง›โ€โ™€๏ธlol wasn’t as creepy as I thoughtโ€ฆit increased my intuition. Maybe I’m a vampire because I do work part time as a psychic and I stay up late and love gloomy weather lol
  6. I finally got a Camaro in January after dreaming of it as a child..Dreams really do come true ๐Ÿ˜. ……………So there you have it. I am thankful that my surprises weren’t anything negative; if they were, it’s best to turn negatives into positives. What were some things that took you by surprise in this ROLLERCOASTER of a year? lol Oh yes and we had a full moon on Halloween, how unpredictable was that? lol

A Simple ‘Pick Me Up’ Vitamin C Drink

Since I have given up coffee over 4 months ago, I have gotten very creative with making healthy drinks. So I have this addiction for adding fruits to my orange juice in the morning. I wanted to share this wake up drink that’s bursting with vitamin c. I like to wake up to
fruit blended drinks because it gives me just the right nutrients to jump start my day. WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW!!

Strawberries are good in vitamin c and so is orange juice. Having fruits early in the morning or before bed also helps with digestion, MOOD ENHANCING and helps you to use the bathroom (via #2 lol If you ain’t poopin then you ain’t groovin lol) I have also found out that making this fruity drink is great for relieving stress and makes you feel relaxed. (Insert yoga meditation pose here. _______ ) I like to sit by the window as the sun is shining on me and pretend that
I am somewhere on a tropical island. It also wouldn’t hurt to add some tropical music to listen to in the background as you devour your tropical drink lol (ahem…passes you a virtual coconut cup with the umbrella straw. lol)

So all you need to do is chop as many strawberries as you like and add some non concentrated orange juice. THAT’S IT! You can cut the strawberries into small circles and toss them in the glass, afterwards pour the orange juice over the strawberries. All the vitamin C in there is enough to keep you glowing and going strong for the day. What’s fun is that after drinking the orange juice, there is the left over strawberries to munch on for a healthy snack.
This drink is sure to give you the burst of energy you need to start your day
or anytime you need a pick me up.

You’re welcome!

Dress With Class If You Don’t Want To Attract Trash

Yes, crew! I have been a victim of this in my early 20s. I remember wondering why did I always attracted perverts or men that only wanted to try getting into my pants. Insert 20 something photo below. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Can you believe I went on a date in the left photo dressed like that and expected to be treated like a queen? and then come back home complaining about how the guy was such a pervert or a creep? Thank goodness for wisdom and growth. Okay, I do believe in flaunting your curves and shape, but wearing a deep low cut with a mini skirt short as a shirt on a date does not scream BE MY MAN! It screams BE MY MAN FOR THE NIGHT! It screams, I’M HOT IN THE PANTS! Also even if a woman is dressed a bit risque (that’s a fancy word for extreme.) it doesn’t give a man the right to proceed in treating her with disrespect and perverted-ness.

A woman should be treated with respect and not be judged just from her appearance, but sadly the way you dress will give people the radar of what kind of person you are. I know, I hate believing that too, but it’s true. What isn’t fair that people automatically will assume your easy based off your body. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Here are some photos below that will give men an example that you are looking for a long term from the get-go. You can still be sexy and classy and embrace your body without exploiting who you are.

It goes both ways, but this is referring to women that wonder why they attract men that only want to get in their pants. What’s the message you are sending? I’m not saying dress boring or un-sexy, dress how you want by all means, but if you want more respect you can combine sexiness with class by not exposing every of your ass. lol

Not being so desperate in conversations and thirsty so soon, even if you are dressed nice. When you are just getting to know someone, the early stages and first impressions counts so much for the outcome.

During my younger days I’d dress this way at times going out, but it would give the idea that I was easy when I wasn’t. I thought sexiness and a sexy body would give me a relationship and that my figure or showing skin would make the guys I want go crazier over me and fall in love with me. Man, did I have it all wrong. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ A lot of young women believe this as well, but a person does not fall in love based off your assets. lol Yes, it attracted men but they were attracted to me for the wrong reason and not for what I wanted. I knew I wanted more.

I was dressed like I wanted a fling when I didn’t. Was it because I thought my body was the way to a man’s heart? Did I lack the self love to dress with self respect when I seeked love from others? This is why they say you can’t truly receive true love if you don’t love yourself first. Sometimes women will hate hearing that and think it means boredom, but trust me, it will help you in the long run and improve your self worth.

If you are seeking love, you should let your goodies and sexual side be the surprise within. If you love to show the print of your vagina in tight pants, have cleavage as low as the south of the border and booty cheeks hanging out of shorts, go ahead. ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ If you want someone to first get the impression that you are long-term, you are going to have to not be so openly sexually at first or dress so raw during the first few dates .

If you want to dress sexy or like an instagram baddie, it’s fun too and represents your confidence of coming out your shell, but going over the top with it will immediatly give others the impression that you are fast ( even if you aren’t.) There is classy feminine, classy sexy and sexy trashy; which one are you okay with? So if you don’t want to be judged as an easy target, add some class or else you’ll attract trash. I hope this helps.
