Welcome Greens

I know, its been so long since I've posted on here. Please forgive me, but so much has changed, I mean dramatically. From moving back to Queens from Brooklyn, two completely opposite neighborhoods, to being a new full time mom, yes a mother! (Up coming post soon) So since becoming into a new mom, I had to reluctantly change my diet with a whole lot of cheat days too. Because lets admit it, we all fall into temptation for food, all kinds. I once in a while crave greens and one of my favorite greens are callaloo. This bunch was gifted from my neighbor where she grow in her backyard. I would love to plant a little vegetable farm but I seriously don't have a lot of time, or skills rather, if it even takes skills. Though, I one day shall try. 

There are many ways you eat callaloo. My mother pairs it with boiled green bananas, fried yellow plantains and maybe with a side of roast breadfruit. I swear its so good. You can also check out some Callaloo styles on Africanbites.com

Mints & Pistachios

I turned 30 years old last month, and one thing I can say has changed about me is my view on womanhood and sexuality. Feeling grown and loving you as is, is imperative. And that means to be comfortable in the skin you're in as well finding the right pieces that will highlight your homemade goods. This dress from Tobi is beautiful and perfect for the spring and summer season, I love how the fabric sits, it is airy and the settle detailing makes me want to run through a meadow field of sunflowers. It gave me a country home feel, where you can just imagine sitting on your porch with lemonade and mints while waiting for that kissed summer breeze.

Bare with me...

Bare with me, every journey is your own. No one can tell you where to go, go back, turn left no turn right. The right way is your way whether you fail or succeed 

I have so many questions on the my life journey. My path seems clouded, crowded with errands, family, friends and duties. I forget my purpose, what I am supposed to be doing, I walk with my eyes covered and my heart shielded. I put my feelings and wants aside for the sake of others. In the mix of it all I lose my balance, my wants as well as happiness. Though I do not realize it until I stop, and think to myself and say "I am literally unhappy", why? Because I have forgotten myself. Forgotten my rules of life. 

I have so many things I want to talk about, I am hoping I can come around more to tell how I feel.

Thanks for reading

Disturbed Fleur...

Pardon my disappearing act, time has moved in fast-forward that I can't remember the in between. I have been trying to place priority first, given up posting, let go of social media and just shut off the world. Last year was, I can say, the worst year of my life. And now I feel like I am slowly picking up the pieces. Appreciating the smaller things and the changes, which, of course, a blessing in disguise. I was disturbed, emotional, and hurt. However, I didn't understand that the higher being had a bigger plan for me, and I am truly grateful. I just sit back and let shit happen, like it is suppose to. 

My flower suffocated, dismantled and poisoned. Disturbance changed my life, perspective and vision. 

Thank you for reading.

When you need that one thing and have to fight to get it, does that mean it isn't meant for you? How do you know when to let things go just to live a normal life? Normal sounds so cliché, nothing is ever normal anymore. I am learning to put myself first but only if I knew this 10 years ago, never sacrifice your happiness for anything. Your happiness is what's important, whether if others get hurt, it’s you or them.

Life Full of Sour Fruits...

You ever woke up wishing you had a talent, whether it is baking, sewing, singing or even refurbishing furniture. It makes you so angry because you feel as if your life is a waste. You work 9-5 miserably because you have to. Doing what you love and getting paid for it is a dream and an internal luxury. Why can’t we all live the dream? I thought life was all about happiness and its pursuit? But they won’t allow me to pursue, I have to work to eat. I realized that I am actually a robot, I am programmed to live this way. They lied to us, and we are forgiving them by working til 70. Then we must live their dream and die already.

Grey Sky...

 Never wait till its too late to say I love you or good bye. 

I have been holding back from posting these photos. Lost my grand daddy.

We miss you grandpa

Ransom all...

 Photography is still and always will be my passion, I can not let it go, I will not let it go.

See you soon
