Black Hippies Need Not Apply

I was so excited to visit this Apothecary in East Village. (I will NOT name them because I don't feel they should get any business. #sorrynotsorry) I had been pining to go for months, so the anticipation had me bubbly as a school girl on my way there. Unfortunately, the very second I stepped inside I immediately felt out of place.

The only Black couple in a tiny shop filled with white customers.

I tried to ignore the foreboding feeling in the pit of my stomach, the little niggling voice in the back of my mind that's telling me to flee. I force myself to browse the selection of items, because I did come here for a reason, and I'm also hoping maybe one of these jolly white hippie women will come and swoop down and douse all my fears.

Nope. No such luck.




Me and my man are right back out the door in less than 3 minutes, because the vibe was just incredibly off putting for me. I didn't get greeted when I walked through the door. No one told me they would be with me in a mom…

Black Friday/Cyber Monday Haul 2018

I usually do not participate in this time of year or any type of Holiday shopping. This year I convinced myself to spoil myself because I already saved the percentage of my paycheck I normally save + I had some extra money from working extra hours at work.




I pretty much got everything that I wanted, except for a blender, an essential oil set, protein powder, a new DSLR, and some more herbs/meds to manage my PCOS. I also wanted $88 worth of books on my Amazon Wishlist, but they are going to have to wait. 😢

Loose Leaf Journaling

I love journaling! I honestly need to be able to vent in order to function. Keeping a journal is keeping a record of your life for future generations. Your child, their child, then their child, and hopefully your words continue to get passed on and you can inspire them to keep a record of their life as well.




After my last journal got stolen, I don't know why, but I wanted to be done with notebooks. No more notebooks for my books or my journals. I always wanted something nice and leather, something that would last a long time, and I could continue to add to. I chose Earth colors because being a Taurus I am an Earth sign, and that's the Element I feel grounded to. 💚🍃






I was bummed when I got the green journal. I thought it would have been bigger since I really thought I was ordering an A5 size journal. I even ordered the paper, which came from Amazon first. I was a little peeved to have A5 paper for an A6 journal. I didn't read the dimensions correctly, so I now have two jo…

Netflix + Chill: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Have you watched it yet? Did you binge it for All Hallows Eve!? You haven't!? Oh, my! You should! This isn't the Sabrina from our childhood, no, no. This is something so much sinister, and I absolutely loved it!



I couldn't wait to finish this new show so that I could review it! Actually, I finished it days ago, in two days when it premiered on Netflix, but I'm just now getting around to telling you guys how much I really loved this show!



Sabrina Spellman is the daughter of a powerful warlock and human mother. She's reaching her 16th birthday where she will take place in a dark baptism so that she can sign her name in the book of the beast, or the devil. The show is about how she wrestles with leaving her human life behind for a witch one.



Not going to lie, was a little put off with them being Satanists. It was weird, like, really weird. It took me a couple episodes to actually get used to the idea, but once I wrapped my head around the verbiage, I could finally rea…

Mental Health Check - October

Ok, my presence around here has been dodgy none the less. Sorry about that! I was spiraling there for a hot minute, but I'm glad to say that I've battled the beast and come out victorious. There's a saying that things come in 3's, be it good or bad. How's about 3 bad things in ONE SETTING? It was devastating to say the least.



The thing that hit me the hardest was when a guy decided to wait until I went inside a restaurant to order food and steal my backpack outta my car. I was crushed. Like, cried until I got a headache. You know that zombie series that I posted from quite a few times? Yeah, the 3rd and 4th book are GONE! 😢😭

I felt so violated. I vaguely saw his face. How sketchy he was. He was in a beige colored SUV. I peeped him looking at me as I'm on my cellphone. I should have stayed in the car. Or maybe not. If he was willing to steal a child's backpack outta my car, he probably would have robbed me! I just thought of that as I type this.



The thing …

socks - thrifted!
wig -  Amazon

Remember when I was too embarrassed to share my first OOTD? Well, since I killed it, I guess you can laugh WITH ME at my first attempt. *Sigh* Alright, get it out of your system, mmkay? 😂

Book Review: The Last Great Reaper by Billi Bell

I do believe this is the first Indie Author book I have devoured in only two days. It was so well written, I honestly just couldn't put it down! I also couldn't wait to finish it because I knew I would love to review it.
{via Amazon Kindle}
Death guides souls to the afterlife, but she's so much more than just the Grim Reaper. She hates to be called that, BTW! And yes! Death is a she! She has a special name that she only let's close friends call her, but not to be confused with the Greek mythology by the same name.
She can only be seen by those who are on the brink of death, but one night while reaping she is seen by someone who is living. Curious and wanting to know more of why Father Dominic can see her, she takes him. Someone wants her to take him and keep him safe, and she needs to find out why.
She's written beautiful. A take no shit type of woman, just like you would imagine Death to be. The dialogue in this book is so well crafted, so well written. It's w…
