Knock Knock...

How is everyone doing? It’s been a minute life happened but we are back on the blogging grind. I hope everyone’s hair journey and life is getting along fabulously. I am just happy, thankful extremely grateful for all the opportunities and blessings coming my way at the moment and I pray the same for everyone reading this right now. So quick update I haven’t really been keeping up with my wash days as I should I am badly in need of a touch up and I need to go product shopping hehehe. I haven’t had a long term protective style in forever and I am itching to try a few new styles in the coming months so looking forward to that. I will try my best to be more consistent in this last quarter of 2017 fingers crossed. I have a ton of back posts to keep up with from some of my favourite hair bloggers so that should keep me busy for a little while. I hope you are all doing great ladies…just checking

Oh and a happy first day of September and happy birthday month to all the September babies myself included:)

Ok so I follow quite a few healthy eating boards on pinterest and one thing I have noticed is the tendency to want to conform for lack of a better word. So someone makes grilled carrot slices and calls them “CARROT BACON” pray please tell why? I don’t get it why not just call them grilled carrot slices. I have seen sweet potato “lasagna”, zucchini “lasagna” that contain NO lasagna sheets so please tell me how is that lasagna? Why not just call them what they are which is some form of casserole dish. Don’t get me started on the numerous salads/meals that substitute cheese for avocado and still use the word cheese in their descriptions why people why? Apart from being false advertising in my opinion these definitions are simply going to confuse people especially those new to these dishes imagine their confusion when they finally come across the authentic dish. Please stop calling all these “healthier” version recipes what they are not. It’s like someone referring to a bean burger as a “vegan beef burger” say what now….I just can’t with all these descriptions lol. If you make layers of vegetables in a casserole dish call it just that, vegetable casserole not zucchini/courgette lasagna or something along those lines. Turkey/beef bacon does not exist, if it didn’t come from a pig it isn’t bacon it is turkey/beef slices and for this I put the blame solely on marketing. And while we are still on the subject of food if you do food videos or have a food blog please remember it is OK to tweak recipes to suit your preferences, environment or palate just don’t call it what it is not.  It’s that simple guys it really is.

The culprits; well some of them…

So you are saying that the carrots came from a pig? no? coz the bacon I know comes from a pig...I think carrot slices would have worked just fine

"Pizza"? maybe not... looks like a fancy fruit salad arrangement

More like a Zuchinni casserole if you ask me

I thought I had seen it all then comes this....
So they have meat in them and they are vegetarian as well #confusedmuch.  Mushroom balls would have worked just as good
And the winner is......
I don't know looks more like a layered chocolate and blueberry cake to me #confusedmuch

Fitness Friday….Aerobic Dance Workouts!

Just a quick fitness Friday update. My latest fitness craze is aerobic dance workouts. I have been doing them for about a week now and I love them. I guess the good music in some of these workouts help as well. Plus it is always a bonus to shed some calories and have fun dancing while at it. Two things I have been consistent with whether I am working out actively or not is doing my 20 supported pushups and 20 squats at least five or six times a week those ones are a must and I must say I really love how toned my shoulder area looks like can’t wait to wear all those off the shoulder outfits. My thighs and butt too have really benefited from the squats they are less jiggly and much more toned. I am glad that I have been able to stay consistent with the squats and pushups such that they have become a habit and guess what it takes less than five minutes to do them.
