Currently working on straightening and raising my #urdhvapadmasana in #sarvangasana. I will be working to build this position and present a then and now shot in the future. 

In yoga, you always want to carefully extended yourself into the next level. This is why after you reach your ability to do certain postures you then progress into sharpening your alignment and strengthening your endurance within your given position. Some #Ashtanga #yoga teachers are known for giving you a position to hold for minutes at time.

☝️I have been getting backlash behind choosing to do self work rather than waste some poor man’s time as he attempts to cozy up to me only to find himself in the friend zone. If you are a women who is perfectly FINE with finding solicitude in your innermost self without the assistance of any other party than the Divine it is MORE than ok. It’s actually absolutely necessary to do so because there is no 50/50 in a relationship only 100/100. Continue to work on you Queen. No more bags. No more meaningless relationships that dead end and leave you where you started. Capeesh???

I had to post this because this recipe was almost orgasmic. So before I was vegan I lovvvvved Nutella, however if you read the ingredients list you will activate the side eye because it’s first ingredient is sugar aside from the milk fat and emulsifier. Additionally, food labels 101 teaches you that the content of all of all products will be listed from the most (weighted)  to the least; so, that means at least 50% of Nutella is sugar which makes it basically spreadable chocolate. 


So here goes less sugar more spice. 

"Not"Ella 

2 cups of Hazelnuts 
1.5 cups of almonds 
1/4 cup of Palm fruit oil
1 Tsp of sea salt 
2 cups of 100% organic cocoa
1/2 cup of Manuka Honey 
1/4 cup of organic cocoa butter 
1 tsp of rum 

This is a treat for those who can’t or don’t do milk and it is much much healthier. I love it with apples and every other fruit you can think of. Play with the ingredients to adapt it to your taste but stay away from artificial flavoring. You don’t know where that shit comes from…

Every person of the African diaspora should see this movie. It’s deeper than you think. After you watch it, galvanize your community and promote education and self sufficiency. Do not rely on other parties to hand you your freedom.

Have you ever considered guacamole to be a main course? Well here ya have it. Ripe avocados, garlic, spinach, red onions processed to a smooth texture then seasoned with cumin, cayenne pepper, Bragg’s seasoning, nutritional yeast, turmeric, sea-salt and cracked black pepper, then mixed in with rice noodles (they are clear) topped with Roma tomatoes and imitation bacon bits (because they’re good). I placed mine on top of organic baby leafed spinach. It’s light yet filling. Enjoy!

The goal of #Gomukhasana is to build your flexibility to the point where you can sit without leaning to one side and the tops of the feet face the ground with a centered torso.

I remember a time when #reading used to be cool. In Georgia, we had the accelerated reader program that allowed us to accumulate points for prizes; such as, pizza and tickets to Six-Flags. We stopped encouraging our youth to think. They are being programmed to become batteries in this homogenized dumbed down society that we wave flags and pop fire crackers for. If you knew who really ran this country, and the world; you would read everything you could get you hands on before they make this shit illegal. πŸ“š

My Grammy hates social media but this cut was too cute to hide. She’s growing out the color to rock the gray with pride so we are clipping away until we get there. 
No chemicals, just a heat protector and tourmaline iron. The beauty of this cut is that she can rock the natural curl with a curl former such as the coconut hibiscus #sheamoisture curl former.

I have the great pleasure of working with and amazing creative artist to bring my “A Black Girl that Will Change the World” Campaign together. @simplysir  

The campaign focuses on my charge to heal communities through its women. I’m charged with showing women how to stand tall in their strength. Understanding that God is in our breath. We are truly and purely royalty. Health, spiritual reformation, psychological restructuring, beautifying, and healing will be a few of my angles of approach. The consciousness shifts when you stop seeing with your eyes and open the third eye of enlightenment… 

More information to come😊
