My Favorite Affirmation Videos

Affirmations have totally changed my life. They are the reason I am now sitting in my apt looking at the beautiful sea rather than a parking lot. They have helped me kill my inner hater bish and changed the way I see myself! 

They work! 

I have an affirmation playlist on Spotify and I also listen to them on YouTube. I also have clients that use the Insight App

Here are a few of my favorites:

My First Cacao Ceremony

I had the pleasure of starting February by opening my heart chakra at my first Cacao Cermony that I co-hosted with my sistars Talia of The Sassy Nation & Ira. It was a beautiful and powerful ceremony &I left feeling full of love & gas too. ( I'm joking but I'm serious ) 


What is a Cacao Ceremony?

In ancient times, cup of cacao was shared to welcome each person who came to visit the Mayan community. Drinking cacao is said to open the heart to connect to the love within self, with others and to strengthen community bonds. Today the tradition carries on in ceremony set to ancestral instrumentation.

Transformation After Trama

There is so much healing that happens when we keep it real. My goal is to always be authentic and transparent. I know that my story of triumph can inspire others to keep going when the going gets tough. Just a year & a half ago I was on probation. But I don't allow my past mistakes to hinder me from going forward in life. 

Arrested & Extorted in Mexico

So I kept this story a secret because I was ashamed and embarrassed but then I remembered that I no longer live a life of shame.  I'm a human living my life and shit happens... Here's a short story on what NOT to do in Mexico. 

Have you ever made a huge blunder while traveling? Tell me about it below. 

Transformation Tuesdays : How I accidentally became "Vegan"



From about 2007 - 2014 I suffered from a painful enlarged lump in my throat that closely resembled an Adams’ apple. It was strange and quite masculine and I'm knot kidding. Men see women with lumps in their throats nowadays and eyebrows start to raise. I needed to get to the bottom of this, so I went to several doctors and even a few specialist.  CAT Scans and an MRI were conducted however no one was able to tell me exactly what it was, or what was causing it. The first time I saw a specialist I was told it was a cyst & he prescribed me a very expensive antibiotic. They were $200.00 out of pocket for a week supply even after my insurance covered a majority of the cost. This helped temporarily,  but the pain came back shortly after and the lump never fully disappeared.

I tried gargling with warm water & salt; this didn't help. I thought maybe it was due to stress, so I started meditation. My quick temper dramatically improved, but I still had the lump. I also tried allergy medication and this only helped with the pain. This went on for many years and eventually WebMD diagnosed me with cancer and honestly, I was terrified.

In November 2013, I was sick and tired of you know,  being sick & tired...  And I was indeed feeling sick and tired. One evening I watched an infomercial for Nutri-Bullets, the next thing I knew I couldn't believe that I ever made a smoothie without this amazing appliance. I just had to have one. I also felt the same way about the Perfect Pancake,  Justin Bieber's singing toothbrush, and the Booty Pop but I was certain this wouldn't end in buyer's remorse.   David Wolfe stressed  how the lack of a nutritious diet contributes to many of our ailments. I had tried everything else up to this point and the Flex Pay made it golden.  I decided to give up processed foods and committed  to drinking a Nutri- Blast every day. I also started reading the blog 100 days of Real Food and learned some shocking facts. I was surprised to find how deceiving the food industry really was. Labels like "Fat-Free" "No Sugar Added" were horrible. Full of high fructose corn syrup and poisons.This leads me to be a “ Nutrition List Stalker” my 10 min grocery trips turned into 1+-hour trips. I had to read everything! There were so many things to look for.

1. Buying items with 5 ingredients or less

2. White Ain't Right! ( Bread, Flour, Rice, etc.)

3. Certified Organic Fruits & Veggies. Especially the Dirty Dozen

4. No GMOs

5. No artificial flavors or colors or preservatives.

6. No refined sugars.

7. "Cage- free" " Hormone Free"  & Certified Organic Meat, Eggs & Milk.



I read a lot of blogs & books and watched many documentaries, but ultimately I listened to my body.  It wasn't long before my energy levels increased, my skin was glowing and my brain seemed less scattered. I still had the lump in my throat, but I was determined to continue with this lifestyle change. But after a few weeks of no processed foods the lump disappeared.


As I introduced myself to new and unfamiliar foods my body seemed to reject the familiar favorites. It seems I became lactose intolerant out of nowhere. ( Which also could be due to age)  I replaced cow's milk with almond milk.This eventually leads to me trying to become a Vegetarian.  I was actually enjoying a very delicious chicken sandwich I made when it hit me (Not the chicken, this idea..)  I should totally give up meat. I was already doing Meatless Mondays.  I always thought Vegetarian was a little far-fetched to me. It was a struggle at first, but I stopped buying meat at the grocery store. I would give in at friends' house and realized this would take some time, and wouldn't happen overnight. I was able to go a few weeks without meat and saw such a difference in my stomach. It was finally flat! In October 2014,  I went to L.A. to visit family and decided I would leave Veg Jazzie in Houston. There was no way I was giving up Roscoes' Chicken &Waffles or In & Out Burger. The first night I was there, I had Wing Stop and The very next morning, I could tell the difference. My stubborn belly fat was back. I couldn't wear any of the many crop tops I had. Too late now, I thought, so I continued to eat meat while I was there. The last day I was there, I went to The Griddle. I enjoyed an Eggs Benedict, and it was  the best one I've ever had. During my trip I realized I felt sluggish again, my belly was hanging over my jeans and I had not been pooping. So, on October 20th my mind was made up. I was officially done with meat! Once I made it thru my first Thanksgiving without eating meat,  it was easy. I knew nothing would taste as delicious as that tender looking brisket and honey baked ham I passed on anyway.  No pork on my fork, no chicken in my kitchen, and no beef in my teeth. 


I still made exceptions to seafood here and there, and crawfish season was difficult for me. I decided not to go by any rules or titles. I just continued to educate myself and tried my best. Some days my best was better than others.

I think the body will revert back to what it really needs once you remove all the other toxins from your body. Giving up meat,  caused my body to no longer want animal by-products. My first favorite food as a child was always, eggs! I loved them from my head down to my legs, they were the " incredible, edible egg! I loved scrambled eggs,  eggs over easy, eggs over hard, eggs over medium. Omelets, eggs benedict, eggnog, everything eggs. Then one morning, they started smelling like chicken abortions to me. I knew then, I had to give up eggs too. I was devastated. Something that was once so delicious to me could actually make me gag now. I know eggs are the most aromatic food, but the smell never bothered me until that day. As I eliminated foods from my diet, I started incorporating new things, quinoa, barley, lentils, and nuts. This kept me from feeling deprived.


Most importantly giving up meat raised my vibrations and awareness. I knew a plant-based diet was important from the books I had read on spirituality.  Then I watched the documentary Earthlings and that pretty much sealed the deal for me. ( Check it out to see what I mean) What started out as a health decision, quickly became about compassion.  Veganism once seemed extreme to me. Even more extreme than killing animals for our own wants and desires with no regards to their lives or feelings. The lump finally disappeared. Maybe it was from the souls of the animals I was eating. Or perhaps my throat chakra was blocked. Either way, it hasn't returned and I am glad that it's finally healed.




Still, I had some concerns when it came to calling myself  Vegan.

1. Would I have to give up wearing animal print?   Not fur, just the print.  ( Sounds silly but Vegans on threads are BRUTAL!)

2. Will I have to give trade my car in? Because I have leather seats? What about my boots?

3. Will my friends still invite me out to dinner?

4. What about taco night?

 5.How will I deal with all the protein questions?

Yet, I knew I was making the right decision and I continue to.


 If you are considering becoming Vegetarian or Vegan try it. You won't regret it.

Las Colorados- The Pink Lagoon


Visiting Las Coloradas to see the pink lagoon has been on my bucket list since I first saw photos on Instagram.

The lakes are pink due to red-colored algae, brine shrimp & plankton that live in the very salty waters. Flamingos are pink because they eat the pink creatures.  

Since we are only 3 hours away we just had to check it out and I am so glad we did. It was truly breath taking.



We took a tour with Mariachi Travel. Which included a 3-hour bus ride to Rio Lagartos then a boat tour to the Pink Lagoon. On the boat ride we saw the wildlife and got uncomfortably close to a crocodile.


Then we did a mud scrub with white Mayan mud. Our skin felt amazing afterwards.



Then we climbed over and there it was, the pink lake. My first thought was, "Momma, I made it!"

It was beautiful, and there were even flamingos.

 I thought the lake would be a little pinker then the tour guide told us we would go to the other side which was the bright pink I saw in the photos.

It was truly breathtaking. I was so happy that I was able to experience this in person.
