F O O D| Smoothie Pops

Hello Loves!

Tonight…I bring to you…the Smoothie Pop!

I have loved popsicles, whether it was cold or hot outside. So, I have come up with my own healthy recipe for homemade smoothie popsicles, especially for my kiddies. My kids love smoothies generally, so it wasn’t hard to get them excited about the different fruits and veggies to include in our smoothie.

You can purchase these popsicle holders  from your local Store(Walmart, Target, World Market, etc.)



The ingredients that I chose to use were spinach, pineapple, strawberries, mango, low fat yogurt, water, and blueberries. I would have included kale if I had it too.🙂



I blended these ingredients on “High” because I didn’t want chunks of spinach in the popsicle.

This is a fabulous way to get your kids to consume more fruits and vegetables….and the best part is…..you know exactly what is being put into your food! It will not get any better than that.🙂

Share your favorite recipe and…Enjoy!


Peace and Blessings,

H A I R| souffle

Hello Good People!

Today, I decided to create my very own hair soufflé…and I think I did a decent job. This in the long run is going to be a more natural and least expensive approach when doing my hair. I like this method because I can visually see what is being used to create this little masterpiece.🙂


What you will need:

4-6 oz of Shea butter

3 -4 oz of coconut oil

hand mixer and mixing bowl

Now…the ingredients on a website I viewed said that corn starch is optional and that you may use a essential oil…I didn’t use either today.

I did add about 5 drops of Jamaican black castor oil and sweet almond oil to my soufflé . I


I warmed up my Shea butter for 30 seconds in the microwave. I put it in my mixing bowl and blended it out until it became creamy.    20160117_141627.jpg


I then added my coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and then my Jamaican black castor oil. I blended with the hand mixer for about  3- 4 minutes until I was able to obtain a fluffy consistency.



Here are my results!🙂


I actually saved my old containers to store my soufflé in, or you can just buy cute mason jars to store it. My soufflé is cooling in a cool and dark place -the fridge…I expect it to go on really nice while I’m doing my flexi rods again.


Whip yourself some up and tell me how you did yours!🙂


Peace and Blessings,

Flexi-Rod Twist Out

Hey Loves!

Quick post with results of my Twist Out… I was clearly trying a new style…other than my normal wash and blow dry. My 3rd attempt was the best attempt with this style. The products i currently use are Creme of Nature with Argan Oil, shea butter, and coconut oil. I tried the first two times by just wrapping my hair around the flexi rod…the 2nd and 3rd attempt was when i did section of 5 parts with two strand twists. By doing the two strand twists, I was able to achieve a head full of curls. It was amazing!


Follow me for more styles coming soon….🙂


With Love,

C H A N G E S| Journey

Hello Loves!

For those who know me personally, I am always speaking of changes and being on a Journey.

What is Change?

a :  to make different in some particular :  alter <never bothered to change the will> b :  to make radically different :  transform <can’t change human nature> c :  to give a different position, course, or direction to a :  to replace with another <let’s change the subject> b :  to make a shift from one to another :  switch <always changes sides in an argument> c :  to exchange for an equivalent sum of money (as in smaller denominations or in a foreign currency) <change a 20-dollar bill> :  to undergo a modification of <foliage changing color>

What is a Journey?

       1 :  an act or instance of traveling from one place to another :  trip
2 chiefly dialect :  a day’s travel 3:  something suggesting travel or passage from one place to another <the journey from youth to maturity> <a journey through time>
I use to shy away from change, but now I embrace it…Never knew how to adapt to it, or at least never had the desire either.
By definition, I am on and have been on this Journey full of Changes since 2013…coming into my own person & sincerely knowing and loving me first.
The thing about change is, is that it can be invited, or it can just happen…when it just happens…it can be more uncomfortable. Being that uncomfortable can make you the best person that you’ve Never been.
So…since 2013-2014….I separated from a 5 year relationship…Began a relationship for several months in 2014-2015…it was different and fun…and i re-learned how to love and to be hurt…but i was able to simply apply it as a life experience and move on from that moment…and were still friends! I can call him whenever about anything ….2015…it had its challenges…my two loves started school(kids being kids…possible ADHD …post coming soon….) …Made some great friends along the way….this year taught me about existing friendships and taking inventory on those…You have to be with people who add value to your life and make you a better person…I experiemented with new hair styles and color…I’m loving the Red currently! I found that I actually Love EDM itself(get lost in the instrumentals y’all), Sango, Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Marian Hill, etc….I added 5 other piercings and 1 tattoo to my body…I also came out to some close family and friends(and now to the world :) ) that I am Bicurious….not sure where that will lead to (its been made clear that you dont have to accept it because its my life), but i believe that you should be honest with yourself…and by being honest with yourself first, then growth occurs.Yay for Growth!!🙂

I believe that people live their entire life trying to please another human(s). My entire life, up until now, has been lived for someone else. How is that living, Or are you merely existing? To define your happiness based on someone elses’s life and values…For what reason(s)? For them to agree, validate, and like you more? You can be your normal self and you will still have people judge you. This Journey has taught me to judge less and to correct those who want to judge more.  Dont live you life full of regret and wishing that you could have done this ,or that…Just do it now! Of course, be within reason. We are never going to be perfect and we still may mess up, but at least we are conscious the next time that we want to be mean to someone because they seem different. Be Kind and do right by people, but dont apologize for who you are growing to be(positive of course).
2016 will be Beautiful…judging less, more QT w/family and friends, loving myself even more, and traveling! I hope I see you on the way!🙂
(this is  constant reminder above, that i have in my bathroom for preparation daily, as I leave my home and set out on my Journey to be changed.)
Know & Love yourself so that you will know how to love others.
With so much Love,

It Could Be You……

Hello Beauties!   It’s 4 a.m. and Im awake! My daughter woke me up….because she had an “accident” the bed. She is 5 years old and she typically doesnt have accidents, but when she does, I usually get upset.

My logic is that maybe if she sees my disapproval about it, then maybe she will try hard to just get up. Sometimes kids forget and you have to limit how much they drink before bed. I can say that I have become very accustomed to not having to get up and change diapers, or bed sheets any longer….so long are those days! But, no…. It happens. I actually caught myself this morning….I told her what she needed to do since SHE wet the bed…take the sheets off and change her clothes….Of course she was unable to do it. I am Mom…and she is accustommed to me doing the dirty work🙂

After I was done washing her sheets, God spoke to me softly when i got back in my bed and I realized…. 1. This could be me in my Silver years 2. Just help her because you love her…dont make her ashamed of what she has done. can you imagine being old in adult diapers while having your children have to change you just for them to scold you and say, “Didnt i tell you not to pee on yourself, Mom?” How sad and ashamed you would feel. Im not going to do that to her again and Im going to apologize to her when she wakes up in the morning…because it as just an “accident” and it could be me….

These are the moments that help me the most while on this Journey to being the best mom…EVER! Sometimes you need reminding how much of a child you are in your adult life. You were once ther too…wetting the bed..:) Lesson Learned …..

Peace and Blessings,

This had me thinking as well….. Enoy the poem…I got it from my Facebook timeline…

“My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way … remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you … my darling daughter.” Original text in Spanish and photo by Guillermo Peña.

Do As I Say…and As I Do!! :)

Hello Beauties!

A comment that I put on my last post inspired me to write this one…


Kids are so impressionable at any age, but truly when they are under ten year old, in my opinion. They are so observant and listen closely to your every word…even when you think they are not….! I know you have faked sleep once, or twice when your parents, or parents friend were having a “grown folks conversation”…..Ummmm hummmm.🙂 We all did it…we were all inquisitive….and still really are… For example…there is an accident pulled over to the median. What do we all naturally do? We stare for as long as our wheel and brakes will allow us to AND we may even roll down the window. So, we all want to know something.

I grew up in the 80-90’s, so McDonald’s and Burger King were a treat..we didn’t eat there everyday. In 2015, its far from a treat. It is a death sentence by choice. Sarcastically speaking, I’m unsure if the salad is even healthy. If you choose to partake in it, eat it in so much moderation that you’re barely eating it at all! My family cooked at home and I cant say that I always wanted it, but if I got hungry enough, then it was eaten. Not many people are cooking at home and when they shop for groceries, they head for the middle aisles…where are the sugary, gooey treats are…Then you have parents who are just getting off work and are tired..I get it. *raises hand* I am too. I have alarms set…here is my schedule:

5:30 a.m. Wake up. Get work out clothes on and kids clothes on

6 a.m. Feed the kids

6:25 a.m. Heading to daycare * thank God they are open this early*

6:35 a.m. Drive to the park

6:45 a.m. MaymyRun and Pandora…locked and loaded

7:30 a.m. 2 miles around park….maybe step runs once or twice..Done.

7:45 a.m. Doing either arm exercise, tummy, or back workouts

8:15 a.m. Getting ready for work

6:45 p.m. Working out with the kids at the park again


I’m becoming disciplined because you wouldn’t get me up that early to save your own life🙂 Now, I can!🙂

You have to re-route your food choices. Only shop for foods on the outside areas. Fruits/Veggie section will ALWAYS be my first place to go. Then, Meat section…followed by Dairy area. Until i learn how to make my own sauces, etc..that’s when i will stay off those aisles. My kids watch me…they see what kind of fruits we ingest…they even watch my exercise…I make it so important that it becomes important to them. It so good for me because I ask random people running up the stairs if they want to race, so it becomes fun for everyone. I don’t care if i look foolish…its about living! Sometimes i give them kid version of being healthy and then some days I give them NC-17 version…For example: “If you eat fast food all the time, you will become over weight…like me…and you will be unhappy…like me…and you will have a plethora of diseases attached to you…UNLESS you make the CHOICE to eat better”. I explain, that mean eating fresh fruits and vegetables, trying green smoothies, sticking to a strict carb intake. I’m learning that food tastes good, but Im not going to scarf down so much that I’m sick because I’m choosing to binge eat. And you know…that is actually a disorder.

Parents: Set great examples…it costs less than you think to eat healthy… You can get out of Walmart with pineapples, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kale, spinach, and even tomatoes…with about $25-30. That is the same amount that you would spend on one meal full of junk. Do better so our kids can do better. Diabetes is real…and I have it. I don’t want my kids to have it and deal with what I’m putting myself through when I CHOOSE to binge eat. I had a blood sugar at 300-400…my body is use to, but I’m damaging organs and nerves in the process. In this past week alone, I have managed to get my blood sugar down to 92- 115. I’m amazed and i rechecked….because i though the meter was lying…* as if it can talk back*.

Were going to do this together…..No one gets left behind!!

I’m challenging everyone to walk 2 miles a day in the park for at least 3 days. Eat 2 more vegetables and fruits in replace of a starch like mashed potatoes, or pasta.🙂

I believe in you🙂

Peace and Blessings,

Health Journey 2015

Hello Love’s!

Its mid-summer and I am….back at on this health journey once again-because i just cant seem to get it right….or get all these love jiggles tight.😉

What prompted me to come out of stuffing whatever food I pleased down my throat was when i got sick with Strep unknowingly….I had a fever and felt different….decided i would eat something really quick on my lunch break. Guess where i decided to go….? McDonalds, of course! Who doesnt love the good ‘ole $1 menu until payday rolls around again!?! I did- until i threw it up that night. I made the choice to not go back to McDonald’s unless its for water. My lesson was that I had to get Strep just to have a wake up call about my health…. Oh and my blood sugar was spiralling so far out of control.

I had a endocrinologist appointment within the next few days…and was basically given to straight….I needed to make the necessary changes to stay alive- not ust for me…but for my ‘lovies as well :)  We went over some new medications that could help me lose weight while i diet and exercise. I can tell you now….it definitely suppressed my appetite. My blood sugars have been its lowest ever. I dont look at food the same…it has too many effects that complicate my life if i choose to eat too much of the food or the wrong foods.

Long story in short….I have been exercising by walking at least 2 miles once to twice a day now for 1 month and counting….( I have lacked these past few days because my hamstring has been sore). I even run the stairs…all 8 of them in the park–sometimes.🙂 I plan to powerwalk in a 5K….I dont care how long it takes🙂

My goals is to lose weight, but Im not rushing it and im not setting myself of failure either….it took about 5-10 year and 2 kids to put this 50lbs on….and Im going to be patient with my body to allow it to come off.

If youre just starting out or doing it over, no worries were going to get it right together this time!🙂

My dream body…she looks very toned.
