Getting back into the Word

Heavy title, right? Some of you know this feeling. Its like you know you need to get back to it, but you allow exterior things to get in the way of something that will benefit you the most on this earth. Reading the bible becomes difficult when we look at it as a task. Like exercising (at least for me, LOL) We need to pray and ask the Lord to change our perspective on this. BIG TIME. The Word of God is MORE important than food. Its more important than water. Have you ever had that feeling where you’re sooo parched that you could drink a whole water bottle in less than a minute? Well I have. In fact, thats where I got my inspiration for this post. Today I was at a photo session shooting and this OVERWHELMING physical thirst came upon me. I didn’t feel like I had time to go anywhere and get myself some water so I was willing to wait another 2 hours without drinking. Thankfully my client graciously offered …

Young Living EO’s

It finally came in the mail and I haven’t stopped researching the different ways I can use my starter kit! Ahhh! Heres the thing, I have been following Young Living for 2 years now. I have bought their Thieves essential oil through my sister in law and have gone back to her for it over and over. I figured that its their best seller and thats all I needed from them. I was doing fine ( So I thought) with my essential oils that I would occasionally buy from TJ Maxx & Whole Foods… But then it hit me, there were serious red flags! For one, I couldn’t use this oils topically without them drying out my skin or affecting me negatively… I tried using an over the counter citrus oil from one of these stores in my water and it tasted like pure chemicals. I immediately freaked out and wandered why I almost put into my body… It led to weeks of research and serious study on what makes an oil a quality one. …

Fall for Matcha

Can we just talk about Matcha for a second? Its everywhere. All over Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest. I was so head strong about tasting this powerhouse of antioxidants that I marched into a local tea shop and tried the famous matcha latte… YUCK! My friend Prissy and I literally spat it right out. It tasted like almond milk and grass had an ugly baby. However, the hype was still on. The rich color was so beautiful to photograph that it was truly getting to me. I was on a mission. I determined to make the best matcha latte that anyone has ever tasted. So around March 2018 I was thinking about what makes my favorite lattes taste good… SPICES: Cinnamon, ginger & pumpkin spice (because who does’t like fall spices?) RICHNESS: Coconut butter for some rich froth and creaminess! TEXTURE: Oat milk. The creamiest of all plant-based milks & EASY to mix with anything! DONE! The gentle green beast was born, and its perfect for fall! Here is how to make it: Gather your spices. …
