Fridayyy Favoritesss

Friday, you beautiful ol'gal you! This day just gifts pep for our steps, amiright? One thing to accompany a Friday, at least in my world, is reflection of the week. I love to sit back and think about some highlights and excitement that occurred. It's positive energy being recycled and you know what they say about recycling; it saves the earth. I'm ultimately doing my part to save the universe. Let's get this party started, hmmm?

Favorite chef moment: I made a Greek pasta salad with plenty of love, olives, and feta and a cornbread cake, which totally called for sour cream and out of habit, I grabbed cream cheese. Fortunately, it was quite the serendipitous turnout and got rave reviews from my coworkers at our summer office party :)


Favorite accessory:

Like walking on air y'all. They were a steal of a deal and gift from my bubsy, and man they are on point.

Favorite #throwback pic: my Mama, Nana, and uncle D



Favorite follow up story: Raju has a gf! And no more chains on his beautiful, bodacious legs. PS: To the monsters who let him live for 50 years on this earth like that---There is a very special table reserved for you in hell.

Favorite inspiration: Two words: John Legend. The man is a genius and serious crusader for the female gender. Have a single doubt? Hear his beautiful song and see the wonderful video made to accompany it: http://vevo.ly/Q2VvFB

Andddddd I'm dropping the mic. Hopefully your Friday brings all the goodness you could wish for. Have a fabulous weekend!

Til we meet again,

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
