A Healthy Smoothie a day promotes better health

Living Healthy The Smoothie Way!!





Recently I have been blending up a storm in the kitchen. I have read a lot on greens and fruits that does the body well and wanted to improve my health. Last week we bought a Vitamix and I love it. I have been on a healthy journey for a few months now and I am enjoying it.

Dark leafy vegetables are great for our body but lets face it, they don't taste good. They are bitter and unless you add salts an butters they simply just taste bitter. However cooking leafy vegetables and adding salt and butter makes it less nutritious. But throwing these raw nutritious elements into your blender with some sweet frozen fruits mask the taste and you still get the benefits.

Just want to share this morning's smoothie recipe with you. Bare in that mind I have ZERO time in the morning (on a workday) to do anything in the kitchen. So, I make smoothies in the evening ( I have time for that. Lol!). After my boyfriend and I have a cup the rest I put in the refrigerator for my Morning Smoothie.

See below for my current smoothie recipe:
  • 2 Kale Leafs
  • 1 Large Carrot
  • 1 Orange
  • 2 Apple
  • 1 Kiwi
  • 2 Celery Stalks (optional or use less if you think its overpowering for you)
  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Tablespoon Chia seeds

I will be sharing more smoothie recipes and tips with you along with a Vitamix review. Stay Tuned!


Do you make smoothies often? Please share your recipe!

Words of Encouragement

Hey Loves!

A few days ago I was very down on myself and needed some encouragement. My boyfriend sent me the following words to uplift my spirits and it did.  I feel like it will help some one too so please read below.

Me: Promise u won't get mad

Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
God:Huummmm...
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....

Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
