Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

The Future of Sustainable Fashion

We are on the brink of a new era in fashion, an era that is completely embracing of sustainability and ecological integrity. Trendsetters and the fashion forward are learning to adopt proverbs such as “waste not want not!” Those pieces from Max Mara may be three seasons old but so what! There is no need to waste perfectly good fashion! It’s okay to adopt a mindset of minimalism in sustainable fashion. You won’t want for anything when you invest in well-made fashion. You extend the wear of your clothing because the pieces are so carefully constructed that you don’t want or need to part ways with them. Prioritizing a few stylish well-made pieces over hundreds of mass produced ill fitting garments is one style standard that should always be held in the most high regard. I coined a term for the most popular mass produced fashion company at current: “Fashion-NONO!” Can you guess which one that is!?! Hahah! The future of sustainable fashion entails saying no to these types of companies a

Skin Regimens and the Ageless Woman

Halle Berry once said that “beauty is not just physical.” Halle’s fountain of youth flows from a myriad of self care actions that she partakes in every day. Halle made skin care a priority ever since she was a teenager and as a result, 54 has her looking fabulous! Many have wondered what Halle does to maintain her youthful appearance. she took everyone by surprise when she revealed her regimen for a social media challenge during quarantine. Halle mentioned that she started doing at home facials at 16 years old and she continued the habit into her adult life. Her 4 step skin regimen includes cleansing, exfoliation, application of a hydration mask and moisturization. She does this regimen religiously. Every day for twice a day! Having a skincare regimen is extremely important for maintaining a youthful and glowing appearance! why do regimens work? well--regimens are like homeostasis for the skin. having a system of care is instrumental to maintaining equilibrium of the skin. equilibriu

Elle's Hair-rific Adventures: My New Children's Book

It’s here folks, yes, it’s finally here! I mentioned in a previous post earlier this year that I was going to get the publishing ball rolling again. Elle’s Hair-rific Adventures has arrived I wrote this book a long time ago, way before there were any popular books that were centered on young female afro-heritage characters. It was during the year 2012, that I created the character, Elle and this story. Eight years later, little girls and boys can now meet Elle! It was my desire to create a character for young black girls whom they could see themselves in as well as their wondrous kinky hair ! Let’s face the facts…little black girls growing up may face trials when it comes to their hair especially if they have parents who do not instill texture and kinky hair appreciation within them at a young age. They grow up seeing popularized and normalized standards of beauty that do not look like them and as a result, shun the features and characteristics that they were born with! (Insert Elle h
