The involved Revolution – Vegan

 

totally Vegan

Vegan the very involved way of living and definitely rewarding. I have always been curious about leading & living a healthy life style for the good of my health, I mean who doesn’t want to live longer on earth and look good whilst doing it?

I never quite understood he difference between the different ways of eating and living, I only understood Vegetarian. I sat down to do some research about the different lifestyle routes one can take to lead the healthy lifestyle according to their standards and with this I discovered; Vegetarianism, Banting, Pescetarianism, and Veganism of course which I chose to lead in my lifestyle.

Now growing up a eating animal products or a carnivore, why would I give up all of that and start a plant based diet?

To be honest the among the reasons, beauty is one of them – I want better skin, I want my skin to consistently glow without even trying, I grew up with skin problems and I never quite understood it I figured this could contribute towards a better skin. Phlegm, the body produces phlegm naturally and dairy products just accelerate the production, the constant clearing of the throat irritates me and I wanted to badly experience the different energy levels that people who are Vegan experience.

Now with this drastic change in my diet comes challenges with it, I went vegetarian first before the complete transition so that I could prepare my body. The first weeks were easy because I was determined, after 3 weeks the hard part started, I would crave normal food like cheese, meat, and at work it’s not easy when pizza and all this delicious non-vegan foods.

Being Vegan means that I do not eat any animal products from the meat of any animal to their products like cheese, eggs, gelatine, and going for gluten free products etc. Sounds crazy right, you’ll be surprised of the alternative there are there out there.

I will not lie, it is not a joke LOL! From buying cook books to help me prepare these meals to shopping for 5 hours in a grocery store, reading each and every label to ensure that it is organic and Vegan. Can you imagine my frustration of being a really good cook and now you have to start all over to learn how to cook again! With everything in the United States being almost processed and GMO it has been a schlep! Despite that I love the numerous choices I have and the affordability of everything.

I’m well on my way to a better self on my journey of living a plant based life style. I love waking up in the morning to make my own juices and feeling good about it. I must add I definitely have more energy on a daily basis and I can say my skin is looking much clearer and happier. I would recommend the 22 day Revolution book for anyone who want to start living a better life!

Another One!

Yes, Another One! DJ Khaled is the new ambassador for the WeightWatchers – Freestyle programme and he is personally using the programme to lose the weight. I was lucky enough to be invited to the Nashville leg of the tour to learn & experience the freestyle programme, get to know who the weight watchers are. On the day DJ Khaled was opening for Demi Lovato at the Bridgestone Arena and he came down with the kitchen!!

 

the city from below (1)

Some of the food that was being sampled at the event included foods that are on DJ Khaled’s diet, the baked potatoes skins with creamed spinach & bacon, the spinach breakfast rolls, and my favorite the vegan cookies! I have started taking my first steps towards going Vegan which mean’t I could not have most of the foods because they contained milk, meat, & gluten. I will tell you later all about it why I decided to go vegan.

It was lovely meeting some of the people who are on the programme, Julie & Kaylee took sometime from the event to tell me all about it and how it works. For the programme You sign up on the website, you chose a package that fits your pocket and one that will complement your lifestyle. So you are given a certain amount of point to spend on a weekly basis like “money’’ for each food item you eat, for example if you eat a chocolate bar and you update it on your weightwatchers account you will automatically lose 20 points or only 10 points if you have a Caesar salad which is of course a much healthier option hence the lesser points. Now with the freestyle programme you can eat anything that you want to eat which is one exciting part of the programme and you do it in portions so that you don’t use up all your points, ending up starving yourself in the end. You must of course pair it up with a manageable exercising regime for you to see results and maintain your ideal weight. It was interesting to learn about the different memberships that the girls are on – Julie is on the online programme with her best-friend, they are both in college and split the cost of the account together with their groceries so that they can afford the plan – Kaylee has the meetings programme that includes all the benefits of the online one + the opportunity to meet up with other members to stay motivated in the programme.

The programme has helped the likes of Jennifer Hudson to stay in shape and Oprah Winfrey still uses it today to enjoy a healthier life. I personally cannot wait to see DJ Khaled’s transformation and you can follow his progress on his social media web pages.

Always Yours,

The Parisian Way

The Beret has been making its way around the streets in the world and today it somehow fell on my head! This fashion accessory is to die for, making its debut since the Bronze Age later adopted by the military French Chasseurs in the 18oo’s and eventually the French as a statement and later by the world…by now you get where I am going.

Being it Spring in Southern state of Tennessee I would have thought it would be much warmer by now however that is not the case, anyway.

To style it the Parisian way keep it warm with a Black Turtle Neck, pairing it up with a Black Cropped Leather Biker Jacket To Match with the Beret.

Add some contrast to the look, by breaking the black down with a pair of Blue Skinny Jeans and Pink Pump Canvas shoes Ballerina Style.

Add some Glamour to the look with a super long Scarf, a Pair of Shades for the Paps and a Classy Black Purse.

Fueling America, Inspiring the Nation

 

Boston

 

Chain restaurants and coffee bars are not everyones cup of “tea” or should I say “coffee” unless it’s Star bucks or a McDonalds. I decided to visit Fuel America because it is a fairly new chain, it is locally brewed, hand crafted, it is cozy, and marks off all the right ticks on my list. The name just caught my attention, the idea of a refilling station for coffee lovers is genius!

 

You're beautiful! (7)

 

The art on the walls in all the chains pays homage to American’s who were the backbones of the country’s history and innovation – writers, actors, musicians, poets, business leaders, and story tellers. I call it the wall of inspiration!

 

You're beautiful! (2)

 

It’s only fitting for a legend to drink in the presence of other legends, that’s the feeling you get whilst sipping on your coffee looking at the photographs on the wall…

 

You're beautiful! (4)

 

They serve fresh sandwiches and delicious snacks on the go! Just what you need when you’re on the go or need to catch up on business meetings at the filling station. The milk and creams are locally sourced which is great for the environment, supporting local businesses and fresh. They also have Fuel America merchandise which is very cool I must add.

 

You're beautiful! (5)

 

The coffee is really good. I did not order anything special, I decided that I was going to base my review of the shop by ordering their most basic coffee that they have on the menu and I was impressed. The strength was perfectly balanced with the taste and of course the great smell from the coffee! They also have a great selection of dried fruits, nuts, and tropical mixes.

Thank the heavens for Jeff Banasia otherwise I would have flown to Boston just to have coffee, I cannot wait for the opportunity to visit the other Fuel America’s.

Yours Trully,

Make up – Estee Lauder, Kylie Cosmetics, Nuetrogena.

 

A great long coat that is always a good investment, go for a tailored fit to accentuate the shape of your body with curves at the right places. Try going for neutral colors .i.e. tan brown, black, royal navy, etc.

Coat – Dolce & Gabbana

 

Pair it up with a Crisp white shirt, body hugging skinny jeans and a good pair of pumps. I always go for the choker regardless of its reputation, it adds that sophisticated look with just the right size of drop down earrings.
