New Orleans-Style Vegan Gumbo Recipe!

Happy Wednesday Fabbies! Ya girl has been busy! Whew! Like for real. I am actually working on a few blog posts at a time (and also planning a Non-Profit event in Memphis, but more on that later), including the one I do at the end of each year, which is my “Favorite Looks Of The Year” post. As I was working on that post, which basically shows all of my favorite outfits and hairstyles of the whole year, I was looking at my pictures from my trip down to New Orleans for Brittanii’s Bachelorette weekend, and started thinking about the food there! THEN I was watching one of my favorite YouTube Vloggers, Earth Mama Medicine, and she made some soup that looked bomb! So couple seeing the soup with seeing the New Orleans pictures,  I got the bright idea to try and make my own vegan version of some gumbo!! So I did.

Homemade “Honey” Mustard Recipe (But Not made with Honey ;)

Happy Tuesday Fabbies! So as promised, I told you guys that I would share some recipes with you this month. And I figured a sauce a week should be good right?! But I will say this, when it comes to eating a healthier diet, and making things yourself, it would definitely behoove you to invest in a blender AND/or food processor. And I use the word “invest” lightly. These days you can get blenders and food processors for under $30. Having these things will make your time in the kitchen so much quicker and easier. And the recipes you can make using a blender alone are endless. I literally use my blender every day to make smoothies, sauces, dips, or whatever. Throw the food in there and blend! So if you don’t already, treat yourself to a blender and food processor, and let those things do all the work for you. You deserve it!

36th Trip Around The Sun

Hey Fabbies! Whew! It’s been a while right?! Pardon me pardon me! I’m not gonna say “I’ve been sooooo busy!” or anything predictable like that, but I will say, blogging has definitely been put on the back burner for the last few months. (I mean, this post was supposed to be posted November 21st on my actual birthday!) But no worries because I am back!  … Continue reading 36th Trip Around The Sun

My Solo Adventures In New Orleans!

As you guys know, I recently went to New Orleans to be a part of an unforgettable bachelorette weekend. The festitivites lasted from Friday until Sunday, but I stayed in New Orleans a few extra days just to recover and to explore! This suggestion was actually made by my husband, who said that I should just stay a few extra days just to relax and just to “be”. I was like, damn. “Why didn’t I think of that?!” I cannot even remember the last time I’ve spent time in a hotel alone. I mean, this may not be a common thing for most, but as someone who travels often, I’m typically around a lot of people whenever I’m traveling: my kids of course, Supreme, friends, family. So to actually have several days, alone, with just me and my 2-step, well, I was absolutely giddy with excitement! Continue reading “My Solo Adventures In New Orleans!”

My Trip To New Orleans For My BFF’s Bachelorette Weekend! TONS OF PHOTOS AND VIDEOS!

Happy Tuesday Fabbies! I know it’s been a while since I’ve last posted. And at this point I know it goes without saying that I have been busy. Besides the usual obligations that come with being a mom and wife, I have continued to be chin deep in Raven Collection. I cannot wait to unveil the full collection of handbags and shoes to you guys once everything is complete. And guess what? Everything is almost complete…But since I like to move in silence so to speak, you guys will see everything for yourselves soon enough! 😉 But nonetheless, I wanted to be sure to share my wonderful trip to New Orleans with you guys on my blog. And I mean, what girl doesn’t like reading and seeing pictures from bachelorette weekends?!? So fun right? Anyway, since my last post, I have traveled to the mighty South! First to my hometown of Jackson, Mississippi to visit my family in late June, and then 2 weekends ago  I traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana to celebrate my best friend Brittanii’s bachelorette weekend. She is getting married in New York City next month, so me, along with her sisters and friends celebrated her last remaining moments as a “single gal”.

Eggplant Mini Pizzas

Hey Fabbies! I have another new recipe for you guys! And this recipe, like many of my others, don’t require a lot of ingredients, which I love. Eggplant mini pizzas are so easy to make, and are perfect for kids and adults alike. I first discovered this recipe when I was living in LA and was newly vegan. I would make them often, but it’s been a while since I had made it, and recently I had the ingredients to make some, and they made for the perfect weekend lunch for the family.  Continue reading “Eggplant Mini Pizzas”

Homemade Hummus-Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe!

Happy Monday Fabbies! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new recipe, so I decided to do sort of a two-for-one. In this post I will share both my cilantro homemade hummus recipe, which then turns into a hummus-stuffed mushroom recipe. These hummus-stuffed mushrooms are great appetizers for a get-together or party, or just as a snack, which is how I love to eat them. And I’m sure I’ve mentioned in previous posts my love for mushrooms in general, so it’s only right that I begin sharing all of my mushroom-related recipes with you guys, because I literally eat mushrooms in some form every single day. Literally. And stuffing them with lots of yummy goodness, like this cilantro hummus, is one of my favorite ways to eat them. Continue reading “Homemade Hummus-Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe!”

My Trip To Miami For My Friend’s Art Basel Show!

Hey Fabbies! Back in early December, I took a trip down to Miami, Florida for a long weekend to be a part of my friend Billy Joe Michel’s art exhibit that took place on two consecutive days. I was there for a total of five days, leaving that Thursday, and returning to Phoenix on Monday. For that weekend, I hired a film crew from www.villaschannel.com to film the entire weekend, because I just KNEW that the weekend would be epic, and would make a great episode for my  YouTube Vlogs. I waited to publish this post because I wanted to post it during the same time that the Episode on Youtube was posted!  That way you will have access to everything we did in Miami for Art Basel 2017. And Ya’ll! The episode is BEYOND epic. You can see for yourself HERE While the episode is A MUST-SEE MOVIE, I wanted to share more photos of the art that I got a chance to see, share what I ate while in Miami, and other photos for the trip as well. So click through and ENJOY! Continue reading “My Trip To Miami For My Friend’s Art Basel Show!”

Quick And Easy “Ramen” Noodle Dish!

Hey Fabbies! I hope your 2018 is off to a great start already! One of my goals for this year was to blog more, and well look at me now! This is like my 5th post this month! Yassss! Anyway, I wanted to share a super simple recipe today, that is basically the same thing as the ever-popular, we-all-have-eaten-it and (some still do) ramen noodle dish! The difference is, though, is that this recipe’s noodles are healthier than the beloved ramen noodles. Does anybody really know what ramen noodles are made of? Well let’s see!
