Natural Painkillers Found In Your Kitchen!



I am a person who does not believe in medicine! LOL I know that may sound crazy but I believe that giving your body too much of something foreign, makes your body prone to it and you start getting to the point where it's like you "need this" to survive (in Clinical Psychology, we call that addiction.) There have been many instances where someone's body healed on it's own and that's the route I like to go (especially if it's a headache of some sort.) 

I wanted to share with you the importance of watching what you eat because food can be powerful. Food is medicine, we need it to survive and we eat it when we are sick to help our bodies get the nutrients that it needs to properly function and heal itself. 

Here are some foods, found in your kitchen, that are good for reducing/killing pain.

Event Recap: Lucky Magazine & Pandora Mother's Day event


           
                                 

On Saturday, I was invited to the Pandora "Mother's Day" event hosted by Lucky Magazine and my fellow blog girlfriend Trina from The Baby Shopaholic. The event was held at the Pandora store in Perimeter Mall and featured jewelry pieces put together by Trina and Lucky Magazine Accessories Editor, Melissa Lum. Mall shoppers had the opportunity to create unique pieces for their loved ones (which included a complimentary gift with a purchase of $75 or more,) win prizes from Pandora and Lucky Magazine, partake in light appetizers, listen to the hottest sounds by DJ Gravey and take cool photos with props in the photo booth!

Project Q.U.E.E.N!!


                             



I hoped everybody "checked their emails" because Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu are serving FIERCENESS Honey!! In the new video, directed by Alan Ferguson (Solange's boo) Janelle takes cues from the Mod and Psychedelic funk eras and puts her own unique spin on it. Erykah Badu makes her appearance as "Badula Oblongata (love it) and shows us how to "STRUT IT" while rocking stiletto boots with a large gray poodle in hand.  I am in LOVE with the video as she shows all of the haters that you can still be fierce without being raunchy.

The natural hair movement is taking over and both ladies look FAB rocking it!

Check out the stills and the video here...

Event Recap: SCAD Design Challenge

                         
Taken from HelpingHart.com

Last Thursday, I was invited to an event held by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta. The students partnered with Hartwell Industries (a leading designer and seller of decor and blank garments) for the design challenge. The event was held to help raise awareness for the "Helping Hart" initiative. Fashion, graphic design, and advertising majors worked in teams for 72 hours to transform apparel from Hartwell into an original design that will be sold on HelpingHart.com (for every garment sold, Hartwell will donate a new garment to charity.)

Stella & Dot Review



Tameka, one of my lovely followers is a Stylist for a company called Stella & Dot. The company is a boutique-style jewelry and accessories line available through in-home Trunk Shows by Independent Stylists and online. Their gorgeous and affordable designs have been seen on Gossip GirlIn Style and Lucky Magazine and worn by some of today's hottest celebrities. 

Tameka sent me this FABULOUS Aurora cocktail Ring which has been worn by actress Tiffani Thiessen and seen in More Magazine. I love this ring because its very elegant looking at an affordable price. It can be dressed up or down and can be worn on any finger because it includes an adjustable sizer.

Make sure you check out Tameka's page because they have amazing gift ideas for Mother's Day, birthdays and Weddings!
