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

Check out Island Essence and Join The Vegan Diet Challenge!


  1. Everything actually looks delicious! I tried vegan for a year but I missed cheese so badly :( I'm thinking it would be fun to join the challenge!

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?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
