Monday Morning Rambles: Love Wins…

Happy Monday my loves!

I usually try to stay away from political topics on my blog but today I had to speak my mind on Same Sex Marriage finally being legalized in all 50 States.I don’t know about you but I am ecstatic about this decision. I think everyone should be allowed to marry who they want and I am so happy to see that most people feel the same way.

So this weekend I ended up getting into a Facebook disagreement with an old friend who made a comment like “I am tired of this damn gay flag…I don’t see the big deal”. I know that not everyone agrees with this ruling but to say that this event is not historical; baffles my mind.

Seriously how can someone believe that this isn’t historical? Especially someone who is in an interracial marriage, which was not legal until 1967. How can someone take it for granted? Those people in 1967 fought for your right to marry your husband and I am sure they thought it was important. I can’t see past the hypocrisy. And by the end of the disagreement, she went and pulled the Bible card…shocker.

As a straight woman living in the United States; I have the right to marry any man that I choose and I am overjoyed that my gay friends and family can FINALLY do the same!

Watch my vlog below to hear my raw rant and I apologize in advance for dropping some F bombs. I was just really passionate.

Love Wins

Namaste…

Monday Morning Rambles: Family Time and Block Island Organics Suncare Review

Good Morning my loves! I am happy to say that it is NOT a dreary day in NYC. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and life is good.

I had a pretty good weekend. I spent most of it with my niece, we went to a birthday party on Saturday afternoon and came back to my place and had an impromptu sleepover, and she spent all of Sunday with me as well. It is crazy how fast she is growing up…it felt like I was hanging out with a friend instead of my little homefries. We have always been close so this is just an added bonus.

******************************************

Yesterday was the official start of summer and with the summertime here, we need to make sure we are taking extra steps to protect our skin. I recently had the opportunity to try Block Island Organics Suncare

Block Island

I love Block Island’s Mission

The Block Island Organics mission

Our mission is to give everyone access to safe, effective, and lovable non-toxic suncare and skin care products. We believe in living outside and enjoying the sun and not hiding from it. With a little sun knowledge, the right sunscreen, and healthy skin care from day to night everyone can live our mantra: “Play Smart, Play Safe.”

I used their SPF 30 screen during my runs last week and absolutely loved it. It was not greasy and had a soft scent that was not overwhelming. Another thing that I love about Block Island is that they do NOT test their products on animals.

Make sure you head over to their site and take advantage of their father’s day special which has been extended until today and get 20 percent off your purchase.

Check out my vlog below for more information on their products.

(I feel a little scattered on today’s vlog…sorry for that)

Monday Morning Rambles: 35 To 35!!!!

Gooooood morning my loves! It is another dreary day in NYC (is this the new norm?) but I am making the best of it!

It is is exactly 35 days until I turn 35 years old so I decided to do a little challenge to kick off my new year.


For the next 35 days, I will incorporate a Green Monster into my daily meals and sometime I will replace two meals with it as an added bonus! I think this is the best time of the year to do this “challenge” since some days it is too warm too cook and sometimes we just need something quick and refreshing.

Here is a list of my staple Green Monster items:
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Cinnamon
  • Truvia
  • Protein Powder
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • Old Fashioned Oats
  • Egg Whites
  • Chia Seeds
  • Nut Butter
  • Almonds
  • Chia Seeds
I love doing little challenges like this to keep things interesting ha!

This week’s MMR vlog is short and sweet

Namaste…
