    Taking a Pause for Change

    Over the last few weeks, if you are subscribed to either my email list or happen to follow me on Instagram you may recall me mentioning some changes within my business. In the event that we are NOT connected through either of those methods the short of the long of it is, my business is CHANGING. Change can be scary and it can also be the thing that helps pushes you to the next level. 2020 has been a catalyst for me in alot of ways. It has made me face things, reflect + truly look at myself and the life I was living. 2020 has called for me to…

    4 Hacks to Make Healthy Food Tasty

    We have spent the last few months really pouring back into ourselves both inside and out. We have done this through movement, healthy eating + pulling tools from our self-care toolkit when we need them.  Now that we are in the last quarter of the year this is not a time to let up off the gas.  Even more so than the beginning portion of the year these last few months can be a bit overwhelming with the Holidays, upcoming Elections, family gatherings and even that tinge of uncertainty that is still in the air. High Vibrations Now is a time for ALL of the hacks that help us maintain…

    5 Tips for My Curly Girls Going Straight for Fall

    Silk press + Blowout season is upon us!! For my curly girls like myself (4C standup!), October marks the beginning of safely straightening your curls without fear. And I for one have been patiently waiting. Why do I silk press? A silk press or a professional blowout is a curly girls dream specifically in the fall. It allows us to dabble in both worlds, the curly + the straight. With both a silk press and a blowout the hair is straightened using a blow dryer, flat iron and sometimes a roller brush. The hair is treated, straighten and often times trimmed. As a curly person, you do not have to…

    3 Tips for Moving Plants Inside for Fall

    This is not a drill, I repeat this is not a drill.  To all of my new plantparents, or this might serve as a reminder to my OG plantparents. The time has come to move your outdoor plants indoors.  Depending on where you live in the world, fall may be showing its face a more and more with each passing day.  Here in NC we have started to see consistent low temps which tells me its time to move my plant babies inside. During the spring and summer due to the warmer weathers, especially at night, I like to move certain plants outside to be as close to their natural…

    A Week of Mindful Eating

    I started eating mindfully and it has completely reshaped how I view mealtime. I wouldn’t categorize myself as a fast/quick eater before last week, but after completing a full week of mindful eating I now know I have been scarfing down food hand over fist since Ive been old enough to feed myself. Why do we quick eat? There are a lot of situations that can produce a behavior of quick eating; from growing up in a large family down to lunch time in school we have all experienced situations that have conditioned us to eat fast. Even as an adult I have experienced “30 min” lunches or visiting restaurants…

    Easy Slow Cooker Oats

    Ok, so I was this years old when I discovered Slow Cooker Oats! I literally had no idea that was even a thing. But once you know better you start doing better, am I right? With the months cooling down while the schedules are ramping up, you know I am all for things EASY. So when looking for easy breakfast ideas I came across a few variations of overnight oats. One thing led to another and boom! I was down a rabbit-hole of Slow Cooker Oat combinations. Slow Cooker Oats is really no different than regular oatmeal or even overnight oats. The beauty however lies in the fact that you…

    7 Affirmations of Grace

    Have you ever heard the saying “Words have power”?  The words we speak have the ability to either breath life + manifestation or it can fuel negativity + tear down esteem.  For the most part we have all been taught to speak kind to one another, the ole “if you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all”, but for whatever reason those rules tend to not apply when thinking of self.  Negative self talk is REAL. We have all been guilty of it at some point or another.  Didn’t get the job? We pick apart why we were not qualified.  Didn’t fit into the dress?…

    Spaghetti but Make it Fashion

    If you don’t know anything about me by now, know this. I LOVE an easy throw together meal. And if that meal can be one of those comforting meals, then we are really hitting on all cylinders. Now while a pasta dish is essentially mandatory at least once a week in my household. I have to admit I have made this particular one 2-3 times in one week before. It really is that easy and delicious. So think “spaghetti” but make it fashion. This dish is both nutritious and can be made with simple ingredients that you likely already have on hand. I also love that this sauce can really…
