Comfy Spring footwear!

Now the weather is warmer. Our feet can now leave those warm boots and slip into some comfy open-toe sandals and flats.

Here are some inexpensive and diverse spring shoes finds (Less than $50).

We Are What We Eat

I hope you are all doing good. 
I am in this early phase of life after college, which I heard is one of the most difficult stage especially because of the economy and just the way life works; starting something for the first time is always difficult. I digress because that's for a completely different blog post. 
During this time I have a lot of alone time which I love because I get to think, research and brainstorm. I get to be more spiritual and think about how to better my life.
 Work and school can get us caught up that we don't have time to pause, breathe, be present and think of life.

I am at the stage in my life where I am discovering exactly who I am and what I want in life. 
I am a working progress, we all are. 

I feel the purpose of life is to be HAPPY. 
I want to feel great, energetic, and whole. 
To achieve this, I am really considering becoming a whole food vegetarian (possibly with no dairy and processed food in my diet). 
Which means no cookies, candy, milk chocolate (only pure organic dark chocolate), processed salts and sugars. 

After my research on what exactly is on the shelves in the stores. I am sold on the idea of becoming a vegetarian. 
It's going to be a challenge that I will take it day by day.  I am African and grew up eating meat.
Family, friends, the media, and work place can make it difficult. However, I willing to work and face the temptations and focus on the big picture. 

Think of all the diseases that can be prevented or reduced; heart diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer and so on. 
 Due to our diet 'eating lifestyle', they gradually creep on the human population and surface when we get older and our system is frail. 

Health is wealth.

Think about this. 
Energy has to be put in for energy to come out. 
 If we eat processed,  synthesized food and chemicals, what do we get out? 

(Hold that thought) 
How about when we eat the foods that are fresh, and in their most natural and whole form, what do we get out?

To feel good GREAT and radiate it, we have to put great food into our bodies. What we eat, drink, and think matters.

My philosophy: Positive perception and good things are what we need for a happier life.

Side-note: I apologize for the lack of post in the past few weeks.
I wish I was able attend the New York Fashion week.
...There is always another time.
I just graduated college two months ago. 
I am still unemployed and searching for a job to kickstart my career. 
Since blogging is just a hobby. I blog when I have or feel like I have the 'time'.
I hope you all understand. 

Thank you for stopping by.
