4 Last Minute Soul Food Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Hola Chicas!

This will officially be my first Thanksgiving without one (or two) Honey Baked Hams!  I've been vegan since May 2018 and I'm still going hard. Luckily, my parents are also plant based now (still!!!) and hubby is a flexitarian, so we're mostly on the same page! I don't do the kitchen, but I look forward to tasting one of these recipes on Thursday! 

You Hold the Power to Heal and Be Healed

Today, there’s only one choice that matters. You have to stay conscious enough to choose your ‘go(o)d vibe’ over your ‘shook vibe’, regardless of circumstances.

Confessions from my 4-Day Silent Meditation Retreat (and why you should book one, too!)


"A retreat is a time to come home inside yourself, where the mind stops and silence of the heart begins." - Ruth Davis

Maya Angelou's Prayer and Meditation Practice!


"Along this path of knowledge, I find that prayer and meditation are elemental. Guidance comes from those practices. Sometimes in meditation one really tries to think of nothing. I do, anyway. I try not to have any focus or use any focus to get away from everything. I try to make myself a quiet vessel, a quiet pool where ideas can rise. Prayer, on the other hand, does focus and keeps the focus in focus. I think that I use both to get myself out of the way. Sometimes our daily problems can so impede our progress to quietude that one needs to step aside. I think when we step aside, when get apart from everyone else and any other ideas and meditate and pray, I think that we can be led to the knowledge of how to meet our next challenge, whatever it is--whether it's physical, psychological, practical, social. I believe that."
...
"Some people tell me I have an abundant life, and I have to agree. There's a song that I've known forever, 'My father's rich in houses and land, He holds the world... all the world in his hands. His coffers are filled with silver and gold. My father's riches, he has riches untold. And I am a child of a king.' So, if I'm a child of the king and my father has everything and loves me... you understand? So, I ask for everything- everything I need, and I have much more than I need." - Maya Angelou

Fotki Days and Boy Mom Life


Hola Chicas!

Two things:

1. When I first started blogging (Oct 2008... 10 years ago last week!), it was the Fotki days.  The original IG! I'd snap a pic of myself first thing in the morning to share some essential hair revelation, and wouldn't think about the fact that I was completely bare faced... we didn't have filters... no apps to smooth out ya shit... there were no IG eyebrows... I was usually in a robe or sweatshirt.  Hell, I was barefaced (save for a neutral lippie) at my own wedding in Aug '08!

Stay Tuned!


back filming with the homie! #StayTuned

Hola Chicas!

It's Friday!!!!! And after a quick trip to NYC and back,  I'm checking in with you to see what's popping for the weekend! Epsom salt baths and pinot noir are definitely in the forecast over here!  

You are Already, HER.


As you read these words, you realize that the hands that are holding this phone, your hands, belong to HER.

You’re remembering now... and it’s like you cut the light back on! You are HER, already!

You feel HER face smiling now, her shoulders relaxing down from HER ears, HER breath deepening. You notice a go(o)d feeling in HER body— peace, relief, relaxation or joy. In this moment, all of your limitations from the past and therefore, your limited future, are gone. You can feel HER future, now, and it’s BRIGHT af!

2 Years.


Two years ago this morning (5:51 am), I sat with my best friend and watched as she took her last breath. It was intimate and painful and beautiful and scary— the best and worst moment of my life. I was filled with so many powerful emotions that all I could manage were tearful ‘thank yous’. We were so close. We still are.

Thank You, D.C.! #BeHerNowWorkshop


Last night was amazing! Thank you D.C. for coming out (in the snow ❄️ ) to my first #BeHerNow Workshop. Thank you for being open to the experience. Thank you for speaking your truth. Thank you for allowing me to speak mine. The energy in the room was absolutely powerful and I hope you’re loving and living from that presence today. I love you all and can’t wait to do it again!

How to Instantly Level Up.


The instant you consciously choose to shift from feeling like yourself to feeling like yourSELF, your whole life trajectory changes. You level up.

Let’s do it together, right now. Notice your breath. In. Out. Nice! Smile, 😊 BIGGER 😆 Now, listen for the silence. Keep smiling. Don’t think about it, just listen. Cock that left ear and listen for the silence that’s under all the thoughts. Listen like you’re listening to see if you hear the baby stirring in the other room. Listen like it’s after 1am and you’re waiting to see when Bae is gonna try to creep in after a night out. Listen to the silence and the space that allows all the other noises to be. Listen for the silence, listen to the space— it’s in you and all around you. That’s where the joy is. And you’re feeling it now— subtly, in your chest as you stay aware of your smile. You feel the peace, the joy in the silence as you breathe in and out. It’s getting stronger. You’re breathing in the joy. You feel the joy as the silence. That joy you’re feeling right now, it’s always here! It’s you. This is HER. You’re being HER, now.

The Only Choice That Matters.


Today, there’s only one choice that matters. You have to stay conscious enough to choose your ‘go(o)d vibe’ over your ‘shook vibe’, regardless of circumstances.

Can you stand firm in your go(o)d feels—unbothered, unshook, smiling and at peace? Or are you gonna seemingly give ‘them’, the power to upset you again, to knock you off balance?

You are JOY, being human!


Today, you will remember what’s important. You will remember that you have a choice.

The Upgrade.


I see you, guuuhhlll! Got that hair popping, I like your lippie too! 💄 Is it new? Nah? Your energy ain’t either, apparently. Look at you— just scrolling, serving resting bitch face and reading this with that same old, played vibe from yesterday. It’s the same energy you’ve been offering for a minute now... and you wonder why not much around you has changed for the better. You’ve been hoping it’ll change, praying everyday for change, maybe even affirming and expecting it to change cause you read a few books on the #lawofattraction. But trust me, you will never live the monumental changes you’re seeking unless you first change the way you’re feeling, the way you’re BEING right now. You have to upgrade your energy if you want to experience a different and doper slice of creation. I sound like a broken record and I will continue until you shift out of your familiar way of being you. The way you feel right now feels like YOU, but it isn’t... you’ve just practiced it for a while. Let’s practice something else.
