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…
