Importance of Healthy Eating

Last week Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending a panel discussion on the importance of healthy eating. This discussion was put on by the Rotaract Club of Antigua and Barbuda in which I occasionally attend meetings. Sadly, there was an issue with panel hosts but it was still an eventful evening. The host of the night was Ms. Charity Dublin, a nutritionist by trade and fellow lifestyle blogger.

Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY

Are ya’ll tired of hearing me speak about the Year of Yes yet? I hope not!
So, what is BADASSERY and why am I striving for it?

All compliments to Shonda Rhimes, Badassery is:

  1. (noun) the practice of knowing one’s own accomplishments and gifts, accepting one’s own accomplishments and gifts and celebrating one’s own accomplishments and gifts; 2. (noun) the practice of living life with swagger : SWAGGER (noun or verb) a state of being that involves loving oneself, waking up “like this” and not giving a crap what anyone else thinks about you. Term first coined by William Shakespeare.

Now that we got that lovely description out the way, why should we strive for it?

It was at an award ceremony where Shonda realized how other young women including herself did not know how to celebrate their accomplishments while being honored. They did one of three things, hid their faces, laugh it off or try to get the person speaking to stop. Continue reading “Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY”

Post-Grad Life Update

So, it’s been TWENTY TWO months since graduating from university. It’s almost two years!! I think I should stop calling these “Post-Grad” life updates and simply life updates because as much as I don’t want to accept it, I’m an adult now.
No more post-grad! Or can I hold on to it for a little longer???

Quick reminder: I graduated in December 2015 with a Bachelors of Science degree in geosciences with a concentration in Environmental Science. I had a GPA of nobody gives A F*** lol, is GPA really a big deal? Oh, and I graduated from the Midwestern State University #GoMustangs !!

In my Kitchen // Twice-Baked Potato

Hey Guys!!

Hope all is well. Since I’ve been home quite a bit due to my sick leave, I’ve had more time to be in the kitchen *also since my mom is away*. This week we wanted to try something different from our usual spread, so we remembered something my mom used to do in the past. TWICE BAKED POTATO ~ it’s easy and fun to make, because you can add all the things you’d want on a regular Baked/Loaded Potato.

Eat Outs // Seafood Saturdayyyss

Hey Guys!!

Welcome to October!! It’s a new month, and by now you know how the saying goes: “New month, new goals, new blessings etc etc” I hope it’s all good for you and me both. This month also happens to be my birth month *23 more days*. However, let’s not get into that today; yesterday I decided to try out a new restaurant and here’s a mini review.

Bay House Restaurant & Bar

Over the past few weeks the restaurant started having a special on weekends (Friday – Sunday) with discounted drinks, free shots, music from a live DJ and special menus. Saturdays were dedicated for seafood, which is one of my first loves, so why not visit? They’re open from 12p.m. for lunch, but we got there around 5p.m. for the drink specials. It’s been really cloudy the past few days, so the sunset wasn’t as spectacular as I know it could have been. The view is still pretty beautiful though.

Photo Diary // 48 hours in Bonn

What I know most of you guys been waiting on, PICTURES. These are just a few shots I took while walking around the city or commuting to and fro the meeting area. It was absolutely stunning seeing all the building designs and just how clean the city looked *like out of a movie*. Sadly, I didn’t capture as much images as I’d like because my phone is low-key trash and I also didn’t want to be seen as that person *snapping everything*.
I also didn’t try a lot of German food, so there’s no take on that.

Hope you enjoy!

Fall was definitely in the air, the trees changing color was nothing short of breathtaking. The picture on the right is a tram sign alert, so you can know when the next one is arriving. These were very cool to ride on and they run every 5 minutes.

Traveling Solo Chronicles

Hey Guys!!

Last  weekend I embarked on a journey I would have never imagined myself doing. Well at least in reality, because I’ve always dreamed of touring Europe but this was different. Two months ago I received an email from my supervisor asking if I was interested in a particular meeting being hosted in Bonn. At first I was so hesitant, because 1. I just started working at this department a month before and 2. I would be traveling to Bonn by myself!

However, as you’d know I’ve been reading the year of yes, and I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to put what I’ve read into play. So with a bit of a boost from my friends and many questions to my supervisors/coworkers I decided to take up the offer.

20170918_051623

The processing was extremely quick and within a week I had my itinerary; all that was left to do was to gather information on the meeting and learn all that I could *this included a lot of reading!*

*skips forward to last weekend* Continue reading “Traveling Solo Chronicles”
