14 Days - Vegan Challenge With Island Essence

14 Days - Vegan Challenge With Island Essence

Hey Loves!

My best-friend Trudy from Island Essence started a 14 Day Vegan Diet Challenge and I thought you guys would just love to join her. She decided to be more conscious of the food she eats and I believe we all need to start watching what goes into our body.

Her 14 Day Vegan challenge is a collaboration with the Kushites Vegetable Cuisine in Kingston Jamaica. So, if you are in Jamaica then you know where to go to get vegan meals. However if you are here in America, your choices are endless. I have done this challenge before using meals and grocery from Trader Joe's, Pret and Whole Foods as these places have tons of vegan choices along with your neighborhood supermarket. Just remember: no meat, no dairy, no fish!  Only natures gifts.

CLICK HERE to check out her blog for details on the challenge and join her.



Below are images of some of the foods that she has been eating so far. They look so pretty and nutritious.

Nut Balls in green thai curry, coconut jelly noodles and
black "Forbidden" rice salad with Lemon Grass Iced Tea 

Falafels & Jimbilata Cous Cous including a carrot and dates salad

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: God can I ask you a question?
God: Sure
Me: Promise u won't get mad

God: I promise
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.....
God: All right
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?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through 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?
