‘Crazy about a man with a FRESH stance…

Good morning good people and those otherwise.
Life is at hand, and therein is surprise.

I felt super loved this morning upon opening my eyes.
I knew that feeling would yield unlimited once I gazed upon the skies.

In short, today I’m feeling alright
in fact I’m a bit giddy and a tad bit high.

I understand the difference between the weekend and an absolute conclusion.
I understand the White House is still under scrutiny with this “Russian collusion…”

Did something fishy go on that caused the commander-in-chief
to win the 2016 election and clutch the presidential seat?

If not, in evidential form —
then why the diversion of bigger alarms?

I won’t go down that rabbit hole, God knows that it’s rough
and I think the administrations fall will come in the lies to a “cover up.”

Step your game up

Cover up for  what? I don’t know. That’s where most are in the dark.
So on this Monday, promise me a fun day:  
A Fresh Start and Do IT with Heart.

There are bigger fish to fry in either direction if you want to fry them.
Keep in mind TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE and seizing the moment for good is ‘gem.’

So what’s on your days agenda? Will you meet up with and chill out with a friend?
Or will you buckle down until the ‘weekends clown’ and grind up this weeks begin?

I’ll probably do the latter.
I’m just 7 days in from Texas — still fatter.

Every time I visit that state it goes down.
I always return to Arizona with an additional 3-5 pounds.

This week will find me with a good heart
putting in Maxi Climber minutes, because I’m smart.

This week will find me doing a diagnostic ‘boom-pow!’
when I go to class at the Healing Center of Tao.

When starting anew, don’t forget to massage the spirit.
I’m Qui
no Tao Master yet, still the truth – you will hear it.

Go out and enjoy the begin of the week. Sing gratefulness like a lark.
You deserve A Fresh Start, so go onconquer it and Do IT with Heart.

Fashion Happens

Fashion Happens everyday –  if you let it! Don’t fight it.
Take a mundane-look and #RightIt!

HEAD-TO-TOE SHARPNESS starts at the crown.

How’s your crown sitting when you first wake up? Tilt your crown properly by checking in with Curly Nikki. Your mane should always be tops! After all it is the first thing we see aTOP when we see you, therefore, it has got to set the tone going forward towards your forehead and those beautiful eyebrows of yours that will voice your expressions all day long – even if you never say a word.

GIVING FACE without a make-up trace IS KEY.
Now put those eyeborows on #fleek:

SIP with PRETTY LIPS.

Lips are KEY. I love my lips.
They are just as curvacious as my hips:

Lips are Qui

Lips are important. You use your mouth to communicate and convey information, may as well polish up the device. I use MAC products but there are many more out there that will do the job. All you have to do is to remember how to apply and it never forget how crucial it is to do so.

There’s a lot of conversation going on in the world, make yours appear interesting before you ever hit the punchline by pouting color before you open your mouth. Bob won’t likely try to compete with you in this area and if he does, ladies – my money is on you!

I’ve not ever been afraid to lip up some color.
And YES! I’m the kind of chic that leaves kiss marks on my lover.

It’s MY personal ART.

 

Adorning YOUR BODY with STYLE.

This part is easiest. You don’t really have to be a fashionista but it would help if you’ve picked up a fashion magazine or two in the last few days. If you haven’t the grocery store checkout is your friend. Fashion magazines should be referred to only as guidance and not law. Your style is your law. Beyonce may look good in a yellow-lemonade dress, but they may not highlight your melanin tone, so you may want to try on a pastel yellow or linen white dress to do the trick. Play around with colors, textures and fabrics — they can each make a huge difference in making an outfit pop!

I notice every time.
And for a clean pair of shoes I’ll stop on a dime.

My daddy must be a lephrachaun —
a man in clean shoes is closer to geting some. lol! 😀

Male fashion can be exquisite when in good taste.
He must be aware by the looks on his counterparts face.

I’m quick with a compliment to him and my sister.
My sisters blush quick though the cutest is that of the Mr.

Men seem to be caught off guard when I compliment them on such.
I can’t see not highlighting his absolute winning touch.
I do appreciate the view very much.

I feel the same about my sisters
who leave the house on fleek – because GOOD STYLE has kissed her.

I admire them all, and then I adorn myself.
I wear relative clothes not up for breaking wealth.

Still, I peruse the blogs and magazines at checkout stands because,
I’m Qui
and while individual style is a OUI, I’m not above a high fashion fuss.

I always dress how I feel.
I’m usually complimented on my appeal.

PERUSE on FOOD

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Technology on August 27, 2012 at 10:00 am


Who doesn’t like to eat? I DO! But I must admit I’m more of a snacker than a 4-course meal connoiseuer. Though at my tender young age, I am trying to correct my bad dietetic ways. So instead of hitting the donut shop or IHOP, I’ve been making protein smoothies every morning for breakfast, for about 6 weeks now.

My skin looks GREAT! I accredit it to the ingredients of my morning smoothies: Chocolate Protein, Frozen BlueBerries, Rasberries, pineapple, vanilla yogurt, [natural raw] wheat germ, flaxseeds, a few leaves of fresh spinach and soy milk (vanilla). It’s quite tasty. Sweet in fact. Which is great for me, since sweets are my thing.

While staying healthy and in shape is a quest I’m working hard to conquer, my kid has decided she wants to open up her own cupcakery. She’s always loved to bake but in the face of CUPCAKE WARS – she’s ready to go at it full throttle. And how did I respond to her future dreams? I said, “GO FOR IT. You’ve got great baking skills for a teenager, (she makes her cookies, cupcakes, and icings from scratch). She has officially started her journey and I’m a trusty team member (like on Cupcake Wars).

Check out the current venture of my mini-me:

The Cupcake Chique

She’s so on-fire about building her business for the long run and even legacy purposes. She does a lot of research and has found some pretty cool FOOD SITES that she’s drawing from. Wether it’s in their style, their artistic baking skills or their enticing web presence — she has found inspiration and is using it as fuel to drive her to her goal. I applaud her and the following sites for being so nourishing, sweet and a reminder that AMERICA is still the place where DREAMS can come true:

I’m just a mom. I do what I can
to help out my kid and my fellow man.

So I hit the wire in search of a show
of those who bake – so I could website promote.

My kids website was built 3 weeks back.
I couldn’t let her enter business without having that.

I admit: I’m high on sweets not too much for the the sour.
I’m also fond of technology: Ultrabook & Jack Bauer.

I’m just a mom. I do what I can
to help my neighbor – be they woman or man.

So I hit the wire to see what I could see.

And for entrepreneurism – I’ll always be sweet.

The benefits of LUNCH

Today I decided to cook lunch, rather than do take out. Besides I’m on a tight budget and all that I had in the freezer was ground beef, turkey burger patties, frozen fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangos, pineapple, peaches) and chicken. I went with the chicken, thawed out a few strawberries, pulled fresh spinach from the fridge that I bought last night and mixed up a balsamic vinegarett and tah-dahhh! Lunch is served and the fam is looking at me like I’m a winner ...click here for the recipe – it’s to live for.

ASPARTAME

 

Decrease the size of your appetite for ASPARTAME. You must. It’s killing you. It’s killing us. Do your own research and save yourself. Be mindful to refrain from chewing MENTOS (or any other sugar free) gum, drinking a diet soda or enjoying a sugar free cookie while engaging in your research. The fore mentioned products are filled with Aspartame and working towards degenerating your health.

I know it’s such strong news and seems to come out of left field, but it’s not. What is in left field is the publics awareness towards the sugar free killer that was FDA approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated soda in 1983. There were 5 deaths attributed to Aspartame prior to 1987 and since then fatality figures have not been made public. Likely because …click here to learn more
