@bkjaden and I are almost settled into our temporary home which is an Airbnb for the next 4 months before our big move to LA. I am excited and very optimistic about this next new chapter of my life. It was scary at first but once I pushed passed all the fears that divorce brings, and reminded myself to keep a positive attitude, then it just felt better as time went on. And now I’m good! Some of you have asked me how I was able to rent an Airbnb. . . . First search google for short term Airbnb rentals in the area you’re looking for. See what pops up. If you’re like me and don’t find what suits your needs as far as size and neighborhood in my case, since I wanted to still be close to my sons school, then start messaging the Airbnb hosts to see if they will rent to you short term. Explain how long you are looking to rent for. If that’s a success, find out how much rent is monthly and see if it fits your budget. That’s exactly how I did it. The great thing about renting an Airbnb instead of a regular apartment is that it comes fully furnished and all bills included in the rent. Yeah, the furnishing and interior decor isn’t my style but figure out what you are willing to sacrifice for the short term. . . . All my furniture and winter clothing from the house I just sold is currently packed away in storage until we make the big move to LA at the beginning of June. . . .

Activated Charcoal Latte Recipe & Benefits ☕️ . . . Activated charcoal has the ability to absorb toxins. Each particle has tons of small pores that can bind to toxins and usher them out of the body. It can help prevent a hangover, relieve digestion upsets like gas and bloating, and help our bodies detox. It”s also great if you have food poisoning to take as soon as symptoms appear. Since it can soak up substances in the body, avoid taking any pills or vitamins within a 2 hour window of consuming charcoal. Otherwise, your charcoal will absorb your pills and miss the toxins you want removed. I usually have this latte first thing on an empty stomach, and then a few hours later when my stomach lets me know it is time for breakfast, I have a solid meal and take my vitamins. . . . You can either pick up activated charcoal from a local health food store or order it on Amazon. Just make sure that it is food grade charcoal. You can choose either capsule form or powder. I like the convenience of just poking a hole in the capsule form. . . . ▪️Detox Charcoal Latte: This Detox Charcoal Latte is a toxin eliminating elixir that tastes just like a vanilla latte! 2 servings ▫️Ingredients * 3 cups almond milk (or non dairy milk of choice) * 1 teaspoon activated charcoal * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract * Sweetener of choice (date syrup, honey, stevia, etc.) 🔹Instructions 1. Add the almond milk into a saucepan and heat over medium high until steaming. . . .
 2. Add the warm milk, charcoal, vanilla, and sweetener into a blender, or if you have a handheld electric frother you can use that. Blend until creamy and frothy. Serve. . . .

A conversation with my long lost friend and I. I’m the blue text. We live in different cities and haven’t spoke in a while. But she always keeps it 💯 with me & everybody else! You see she agrees there are times I’m stupid! Lol! 😂😂😂 She knows what’s been going on the last few months, with my divorce, selling my Pinterest house, moving to a temporary home until Jaden graduates at the end of this coming May. And then moving to LA. The place I said I couldn’t stand and would never want to live there ....lol! Never say never! . . . In hind site, every time I went to LA it was a unique experience. Once it was with my best friend/homie lover friend. He had moved out there for acting. So it was a great excuse to fly out. The second time I flew out for a friends movie premiere. That’s when I experienced young black Hollywood at the time. And that shit was crazy, wild, and fun with no fuxxin boundaries whatsoever!!! But it was also bugged out at the same time in a bad way. Like some people were pretty odd. Almost like stuck in a time warp on a C budget movie set odd. It just didn’t vibe with me. The third time I flew to LA, my long time friend/homie lover friend flew me out. He was a drug dealer, who grew up in the Trap in LA (don’t judge me 😒). He picked me up from the airport in a red Lamborghini. And let’s just say the trip got crazier from there. 👈🏽👈🏽👈🏽my mom just died from reading that. It’s ok mom, I make better decisions now. 😝. . . All of that to say, I was young and in a different head space each time. I’ve been so many different people since those days. And every person I changed into over time was me. They were all me! Just me growing and at different phases. . . So here I go moving to LA. Because a great life is being a combination of both brave and stupid! You can’t live your life in fear and expect to live an extraordinary life! Heck you can’t expect to live at all! At that point you’re just existing and watching other people live. And you can’t live a life being afraid of failure. Failure is inevitable. It’s the only thing that allows you to truly grow. Here’s to being brave & stupid! . . .

My favorite toner ever, is from a Korean beauty brand called Whamisa Organic Flowers Skin Toner🌼🌼🌼. What makes this toner special is that it’s made with fermented organic flowers. It’s great for making your skin softer, plumper, hydrated, soothed, & balanced by creating a skin barrier after use. The pH level is between 5.2-5.7. . . . When it comes to the pH of our skin, it's reliant on the skin's acid mantle. This acid mantle protects skin against external influences like bacteria, allergens and pollution, while maintaining moisture. For your skin to remain balanced, your acid mantle will naturally stay slightly acidic with a pH of around 4.5-5.5. . . . Emulsifiers found in moisturizers and cleansers tend to have a higher pH. Their alkalinity can disrupt the skin's acid mantle. Extreme pH levels can cause inflammation, irritation, dryness and skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and redness. Ideally, the products you are using should stay within the pH range of the skin and sit around (4.5 – 6.0) Products you use regularly and leave on your face should be pH balanced accordingly and sit around the (4.0 – 5.5) range. . . . A couple of exceptions would be an exfoliating product that contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) that are used to create an acidic environment to assist with shedding of the skin. Another would be a professional treatment like a chemical peel that’s designed to neutralize the acidity of the skin. . . . You can test the pH of products using pH litmus strips from a pharmacy or if you want to get techy, invest in a simple pH meter. If the pH of a product is less than 4 or more than 6 then you should discontinue using it. You can also test your makeup as well.  Because soap is high in alkalinity (8.0-11.0) you should be aware of using it on your face unless it’s specifically pH balanced and labelled as such. Or if your skin doesn’t  seem to mind it. . . . I purchase Whamisa Organic Flowers Skin Toner from Amazon.
