So day 1 went pretty well on the cleanse.. Today waking up is. A little bit difficult then yesterday. Day 2 going strong and fighting but I will continue.

Evening or shall I say morning... it has proved to be so difficult for me to update as often as i wanted to since the beginning of the business, homeschooling, driver to all activities. I really wish BLOGGEr had a software for the Blackberry  just like WORDPRESS and the Iphone app. Instead of the test a post which only gives you a certain amount of characters you can insert.

Ahh alas, it has been a little over 5 days since i have had this hair style, the cut was done by MOI as well as the styling. I really thought with all the hair I cut of it would have been much shorter. to my surprise it was that length. 

Hope you like the mew cut!

This was me 9 to 10 months ago.

This was a couple of days ago.

All had fallen to the ground never to return again ( sounds great to me...lol)

This was the outcome...My own little PUFF.....LOVED IT

Wednesday, September 15, 2010


So finally after removing the extensions from my hair, I looked in the mirror and just decided to do it. I was just so fed up with it all.

I saw the scissors and just stated cutting,of course while my daughter screamed " NO MOMMY....WHAT ARE YOU DOING, I'M CALLING DADDY." Incase you are wondering, yes she did call her daddy to tell on me (I died laughing).

I feel so free, like I did 2 years ago when I was all natural. After 9 or 10 months of transitioning I am free from this madness called my hair.

Pictures to follow for some reason my macbook has said  good bye to the photos in my library.

Back up time.

So I have been in NYC for the past week or so. After already spending alot of money on groceries. We went out and had some food. Now we have agreed that we will fulfill our commitment for this lifestyle we have adopted. So we went out and had some things to eat (that we which to not mention, does not include meat, eggs or any thing that is truly bad) we have fell prey to some cheese ppl. We went to UNO' and it was absolute torture. I felt like it was the end of the world i felt awful. It was not like i was sick to my stomach, just that we really wanted to continue. Then later the affect was worse. I felt awful. 

When I get back home I will defiantly fix this problem ASAP.

I am in NYC for a couple of days and it has proved to be very difficult to find or even cook outside of my dwelling... But I keep going STRONG....

Friday, August 27, 2010


 Hey, I know it has been a while since I have been up dating my post. Not only has it been so crazy for me with all that is going on with school for my eldest, but also work has come into play.
  Along with many other aspects of life, while sitting in the media room one morning on a chill day (as I would  call it) which was about 2 1/2 months ago. My husband and I were doing the usual reading different books and constantly sharing information back and forth. At some point  both of us in the mist of our reading and researching we stumble on to something that was different in text but similar in meaning pertain our eating habits. At that time we did not think out eating habits were really something that needed any dramatic change.
We were not eating any meat ( chicken, beef, goat...etc) However , sea food was our thing. Still eating everything us (not to say if you do eat these things you are less of a person or are wrong and I am right.) was the issue for us.
My husband was socializing on  a regular basis with an gentelman that was very much an interesting person to converse with. It was thorough numeros conversations that we came to get our own RESEARCH at hand and really decieded to explore our option. Cleansing was our first plan of action. get all the build up out and start fresh.
With that said the Gentelman had us meet his mother who is and Herbealist (Please keep an open mind to that title). We met (Annette Thomas) at 3:30 pm ( at least that was when we were scheduled to meet her but with two children to run after and get ready it was more like 3:45 pm) at the Dekalb Farmers Market. She had her hair in an afro as beautiful as she can be. When she stood to greet us she was this slender women who was confident in her steps as well as her words.  After studing for years and EDUCATING individuals, she is someone I have come to repect and learn from.
The objective of this meeting was not sell anything or prey as many of you reader might think. It was for her to get a sense of what our objectives were, and how she can better assist us to getting there with knowledge instead of perscriptions. We had a great straigh forward , no nonsense talk. She went from A-Z with us, explained and examine with us. We asked question and she answered. Many of the questions we asked she wanted us to research them for ourselves and make our understanding of it and  if and when it need more dysections she will make it a smooth recovery.
Annette gave us source of things we should keep in our diet and other that should be eliminated completely.  With that information at had I was to schedule the meals according ly.
Now I began this journey on the 1st of August 2010, so we have been at this for about 27 days. The most difficult part of this was the transition portion. getting all the right meals in at the right time for us and creating meals from nothing was soooo dfficult , we were really use to one way and having to changed that 360 degrees was very difficult.
Getting into a place where it was just GREAT
After meeting Annette there were alot of days that I even had to call her 3-4 time a day to just ask questions, and again she was a ton of help and inspiration.
As the days would follow I would she changes in our attitude, skin, hair and even apperance. I felt like I was walking on clouds. LITERALLY.
Again to get here you would have to really come out side of your element and see what it is this whole cleansing process will do for you. Beside the fact that I lost 20 pounds out of this was just a great bonus.
Here's What We Have Not Eaten
Since the first I have not eaten any form of dairy, any animal product many veggies, eggs, carrots, table salt, rice, wheatt, many grains omitted, sugar. and many things that were in our diet that was just eliminated completely.
PLEASE READ.........I wrote this for those of you who feel there has to be another way, another option that can enable you to live a health life without counting calories or worring about when a next out break of bacteria will happen on these wonderfulk things we call food.
Again before I went on this journey I was READY. mentally, physically and most of all spiritually. You have to be very much ready for this. take sometime do some research on your own. Then to get more indepth with what you  have learned you can contact Annette:

Friday, July 16, 2010


It is around 11:21, the children are sleeping as well as the husband and here I am still awake.

Taking in my peace I wondered, as much as I love my blog ho w can I make this blog better. I still have yet to post any pics of myself. FEAR has taken over or just the thought of what if's cross my mind.

I have realize at the end of the day it is just me alone that can make this decision. 

Let see in the next postings to come what happens

All in all I have honestly feel in love with Savannah Georgia. It's rich history and amazingly executed architecturally detail homes and buildings have just made a place in my heart and is there to say.

WE (The whole family) HAD A BLAST.

Saturday, May 22, 2010


I am so proud to say that my sister has graduated from Law School, the whole family came and we celebrated this huge accomplishment.

Wednesday, May 12, 2010


So as this week ends I am getting even more excited. We will be on our way to Tennessee for my sister-in-laws Graduation. The amount of family coming from all  over the world is also exciting. She is an inspiration to not just us but the little future me's that I have created. My eldest one adores her, she is counting the day's one by one. Too funny.

Sid note: Mother's day was just so amazing. I was still super busy however, I was told by my husband and daughter to stay in bed for the morning and was bought breakfast in bed. WOW the whole nine. I was so tearful at the sight. I Never really care to celebrate anything because I do believe that life should be celebrated every single day that we have to live on this earth.

I would like to take this time to say thank you to my lovely family.

You don't know until you try.

Picture's to come soon.

* update.... So I get to the YMCA, only to be told that the Tot and Mommy class was not being taught . I was the only one that signed up for it. My argument was I paid so guess what, whether or not the baby and I are the only one's in the class is not my problem. I would like the teacher to teach us period. If not I would l Like my a refund. Soon enough the teacher came and taught the lesson. Surprisingly, the lesson went well she did not cry, she was a little cold, and it was new to her. She was more frightened about the temperature of the water more so then the "one, two, three... under the water" game we played, she did not like it too much. At the end she was just over it.

After the baby Nat's class then it was time for Gab's class. She on the other hand was super excited. Gab's was all over herself with excitement. Only for the director to walk in and say to a pool room full of parents " um, there is no class today, you have your days mixed up." WOW... two unorganized mistakes in one day. At this point i was livid, before i even open my mouth he double checked his calender and apologized for the discrepancy. Thank goodness, I was getting so upset of how they ran this facility I was ready to withdrawal the kids from the classes.

This is the All black everything website relating to all moms of color. Just launched one week and a half ago. Love the style of the website.

What I also like is that she is showing there are many different aspects of being a mom but yet, style and health while taking good care of yourself as a mother. One thing which we MOM have a hard thing doing.

All in all she is a wonderfully entertaining writer , insightful and 100% Real.

I will succeed .

So I just wanted to share this with my readers. Just in case you have not seen it, this little video (thanks to my older brother) has been playing in the house again since yesterday evening. As cute as it was the first 5 times after the 20th time I was sick of it. The baby decided that since she was sick she will bug me until I put it on for her and she was the happy camper for about 20 minute.
Here it is:

Nikole Crowe is blogging about life,fashion art... but one reason why I appreciate her blog is the fact that she is true to herself... doesn't try to hard and is free spirited when writing her posts.

Also in my transition from chemical to natural she is one of my educational resources.

Love this site.

This is the begining fof my Honorable mention. there will be some blog I would like and have on my Blog Roll. However, there will come a time where I would visit a blog which just stops me for about hours as I get Knowledge and just become WRAPPED up in what this person(s) have to say.

Afrolicious is one such sight that will leave you inspired. Wether it is the music the art, Fashion. the Beauty in the discovery of oneself, you still want more.

Now this is what I call fashion #2

Maison Martin Margiela 23-karat gold plated ring set Dear Maison Martin Margiela (designer)

If I can just wake up and find a package of your 24-Karate Gold Plated ring set on my door step tomorrow, you would make me a very happy women. $355 does sound like a reasonable Price, but i will wait...

This is considered something I will definitely have on.

Now this is what I call fashion #1

So these sunglasses alone are just amazing looking to me. Though very simple it's feature has me drooling for more than one pair.

the designing behind these "simple" sunglasses have mother earth smiling from ear to ear..."F@%# a plastic".

Shwood Eyeware are the masterminds behind the design.

Now this does not hold the big name like the one below, I prefer them 100% more.

Dolce & Gabanna Sun Glasses S/S 2010

Via Fashion Indie

With the look of two glasses in one, i have to question, Would you wear them?

My style differs from time to time. depending on the mode or the article. in the next post I will show you what I would prefer to spend my cash on.

Work is never over when you say it is over.....

So this morning i woke up @ around 3 o'clock to the sound of my eldest daughter coughing, literally hacking out the lining of her esophagus. In to the kitchen we went for some honey and lemon just like my mother taught me. Then back to the bedroom trying to sleep then, the little one wakes from the light and noise (she sleeps very light) darn. I put her back to sleep but now I am fully awake ( hate when that happens).

Down I went looking over at me was the alarm clock, taunting me, teasing me changing its number minute by minute as if it was saying :

'yeah you and I know that you will be asked for breakfast by the little one's in less then 4 hour so hurry'...

To shut it up I just unplugged the B#&$@......

I finally got some sleep, once I woke up it was like a machine.
Starting with breakfast then cleaning of the first floor of the house. Yes all of the first floor
then then second floor and finally the dreadful children playroom. We all know how that went, I unlisted the help of the big baby girl who was less then eager to help.

Got down stairs a washed and comb the girls hair..finishing off with dinner. husband went to the office today so...did this all myself.

I was able to write this because I finally sat my behind on a chair and was able to just chill..

Then there was night....3rd day

Deciding to go natural

I was natural for 3 years before becoming pregnant and deciding to relax my hair.( I do know that pregnancy was the worse time to decide to so this) at that time I was working in the Beauty/fashion business, and appearance was everything. Meaning having my head stuck between the toilet more than 3 times a day was my main concern more so than my appearance. I was also not as educated enough about my own hair and thought relaxing it would make it easier.

So after three years I relaxed it, now i am back to my origin roots.

I have been 4 months since I have relaxed my hair, I am also trying to just grow it out without the bug chop. Will I succeed? Stay tune

there was day...2nd day


The recent tragedy in Haiti (my Home country) has got me thinking. There are so many things in my closet that i have yet to wear or am not going to wear anytime soon, so i decided to send all of them to Haiti. I want to teach the girls how to give and not just take. My Daughter and I went through her closet together as i explained to her the reason for us giving she was very proud to give and i saw the smile on her face and that in itself made me so happy.

So now the question is what will you do to help.

There was day....2nd day
