Day1 of 14Day Vegetarian Challenge

Day1 of 14Day Vegetarian Challenge


Hey Guys!

My 14 Day No Meat Vegetarian Challenge has begun! Excited mucho mucho! Lol! I am also excited that a good number of ladies and gents have decided to do this challenge with me. Now I don't feel alone. Also, Maggi from CluelessCurl have joined me on this challenge and we will both be documenting the challenge and supporting each other. Please go check out her blog. She is such a positive person, Eco-lover and tries to live clean with every passing day. 

So, yesterday February 1st was day 1 of the challenge. I woke up and reminded myself that this is not just a challenge but a change in lifestyle. I hope this challenge will allow me to fall in love with more earthy foods and improve the health of my household. Yes people......the FiancĂ© is supporting the challenge and also excited to see how it will affect his health. He is much better at making smoothies than I can so he is the official Smoothie Master in this challenge. 

So here is a break down of what I ate yesterday:

Breakfast 

I wasn't that hungry so I had a banana and orange and drank some black tea that I got from Teavana. 


Brunch
My friends Krista and Yana took my fiancĂ© and I out for brunch at a Jamaican spot in Soho to celebrate our engagement. 



I went back to my Jamaican roots and ordered the Jamaican Breakfast: Ackee, callaloo, plantains and festival. Yummy! Now I miss my mommy's cooking. 




Dinner
For Dinner I took over.  I loved it. No meat but still taste good and filling.

I made a lovely dinner of couscous, steamed cabbage with sweet onions, fried ripe plantains and freshly sliced cucumber. Served with a glass of lemon water.


What did you eat today? Share with us. 

See you tomorrow. Let's learn and grow together.

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?
