Tried + True: 5 Things I Tried in July


  • Master Brew Kambucha
  • Ever taken an Apple Cider Vinegar shot? No? Well, this is like sipping on ACV, but without the horrible burn. This doesn't have an aftertaste either. I was nervous to drink this. My first time was a little trippy, because I was feeling weird. I took it as a good sign, and I never felt funky again. It's now a part of my daily. I drink 8 oz every single day.


  • Kevita Sparkling Probiotic
  • If you're not ready to take a big girl leap into Kambucha, I suggest this. It's super mild compared to Kambucha's bold ACV taste. This was like sipping a natural soda, no fake.

  • Ocean Spray Mocktails
  • Do not get Cranberry Peach! It was tart and just not right at all. I did get the Tropical Citrus and it was good. I would suggest either watering it down, or using it as a mixer for a drink.

  • Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon
  • I'm all about seasonings! I let the beau pick this one out and it was yummy. We used it to season our hamburger meat before we grilled them. We also added some extra brown sugar, because I'm Southern. I love muh stuff extra suh-weet!

  • Bush's Grillin' Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar
  • Again, these were yummy, too! I love the Summer so much because we get to grill and hang out. These were really good out of the can, but to kick it up a notch, we added a shot of Jack Daniel's and some more brown sugar.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
