All About the Ultimate Women’s and Food Expo…

Hey friends! Happy Sunday…

So yesterday I attended the Ultimate Women’s Expo and Food Expo at the NJ Convention Center in Edison NJ with my sister and blogger/journalist, Nerisa Eugenia Waterman.Β  It’s basically a 2 in 1 event that takes place under one roof.

On one side, you find yourself walking through the Women’s Expo that consists of small business vendors as well as major chain businesses. There are free DIY classes, massages, hairstyling, manicures and various beauty treatments…

And you can also get a free biometric screening, which I personally think is awesome…

Vegan Monday…Takeout Anyone??? πŸ˜‹

Hey my friends!

So who doesn’t love to indulge in chinese takeout every once in awhile? I know many of you enjoy eating fried rice, whether chicken or shrimp. I unfortunately never had fried rice because I despise eating rice. Yes I said it… I despise rice πŸ˜–.

My brother’s favorite chinese takeout dish is chicken fried rice. With that in mind, I decided to make a vegan version that is also healthy and more importantly, something that I could actually eat.

So my version of chicken fried rice is the chik’n fried couscous.

What to Wear to the Beach…

Hey my friends!

First, let me say Happy Labor day! For us island folks, it’s a very big deal. If you’re in NYC, you’re probably celebrating at the carnival. For the rest of us not attending and plan on going to the beach, let me show you a last minute ootd (outfit of the day) you can wear at the beach if you’re not swimsuit ready…

A simply white tank top, kimono and jean shorts does the trick. And to accessorize your outfit. Add a straw crossbody bag, flip flops, gold hoop earrings and a pair of sunglasses… Continue reading “What to Wear to the Beach…”

Is this Really New Jersey πŸ˜²

Hey my friends!

Let me first put out this disclaimer, I am an island girl…born in St. Croix, USVI. Ok, so I’ve been living in NJ since I was three years old, so some would say I’m more of a Jersey girl (P.S. I completely disagree with that). Anyhow, I say all of that to say that I have spent most of my life so far living in Jersey. And believe or not, until this past week, I have never been to the beaches on the shore. Shocking right???

What was more shocking for me is how pleasantly surprised I was to see how beautiful it actually was. My friend goes to the beach all the time and since I didn’t get to go anywhere this summer due to my surgery and recovery process, she invited me to spend the day at the beach…sort of a staycation. I wasn’t too excited about going at first. For one, I just never had any interest in the jersey shore beaches. If I wanted to go to the beach, I would go to an island. And secondly, I’m just not beach ready. I still have my scar which is very visible and still not completely healed. So I decided, “what the heck, just go.” And I’m glad that I did…
