Vegetarian Challenge Food Shopping



Hey loves!

So, as I plan for this 14 Days No Meat Vegetarian Challenge, I realize that I need to go food shopping soon. I better get this shopping list in order. I will not be going crazy in the supermarket getting every veggie in site - I need to start slow. If you don't know what your doing either, I suggest you go slow with me. Lol!


First, think of what meals you want in the first few days. Google recipes and see what you might want to try. Make sure your list has items that are rich in vitamins, Protein, Iron, Zinc and Fiber. We want to make sure our meals are balanced so we get the most out of this experience. Also, I will post here and the Facebook Page as I come across recipes or ideas that I love. I know I will be on my smoothie game and I think I will be trying steamed veggies and grains and salads and potatoes maybe.

Ok....now to my list:
  • Bag of leafy greens (baby spinach, kale, chard) for salad, cooking and smoothie 
  • Red Cabbage 
  • Sweet peppers
  • Onions
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Wholewheat Couscous 
  • Quinoa
  • Red skin potatoes 
  • Plantains
  • Potatoes
  • Mushroom
  • Salad dressing 
  • Egg
  • Frozen mix fruits for smoothies. 
  • Navel oranges and tangerines
  • Banana 

**pardon my crabby handwriting. hehe!
I often drink a homemade smoothie few times a week. Maybe now I will make smoothies more often as they do fill me up and give me a glass full of goodness. I will post pics and recipes for some of my smoothies when I make them.

What will you be shopping for?

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.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

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?
