I met a young lady last November, exchanged numbers and from that point we talked literally every day via calls and texts. After like a month I noticed a lack of calls .. So I reciprocated the same energy. After 2 weeks of me not calling, she calls like, Wassup? Why you stop calling me?Continue reading “ASK ELLA: Is this my Queen?”

Assata Shakur: The Autobiography
Too often, it is made to seem like the struggles of people of color happened “so long ago”. More saddening is how the struggles of Black leaders and revolutionaries are silenced or denied. This first-person detailing of the wrongs done to an innocent woman should be more widely known and discussed.
Snorkeling in Barbados 🇧🇧
The snorkeling adventure is pretty affordable – if you only want to snorkel, with no drinks included, the trip costs $40. It’s $80 if you also want some rum punch 🍹 If you’re not a swimmer, you can still join the boat ride for a cool $20. I typically check Viator & see if they have any deals.
Homemade No Bake Granola Bars 🍌🥜
Just because I’m trying to eat healthy doesn’t mean I don’t want to snack all the time 🥺 These granola bars have been life savers 😩
My Garra Fish Pedicure by @GarrasLasVegas
Dedicated my last day in Vegas to the spa and started with trying out a pedi at @GarraLasVegas This spot was a lot more fun & low-key than I expected & the fish were as good at their job as they are said to be. The customer service was worth mentioning; The girls who work the spa inject their fun & youthfulness into the business as they prep and inform you about everything you need & want to know. Not only are they kind, but incredibly informed about their job.
Brunch at @JacobsPickles
Sitting atop a burly biscuit was fried chicken breast, coleslaw, fried green tomatoes, coleslaw and bacon. I ordered the Southern BLT ($18) and was warned it’d be the biggest meal. Not only did I want to taste all the fixings (and the fried chicken) but I wanted to bring some back home to bae since he didn’t tag along.
If you’re looking to be full full, or have leftovers later, Jacob’s will give you what you need. When our orders got to the table, we all sat back and tried to calculate the best angle to take the first bite from. I decided to take a fork & knife to mine 😂
Representation Matters: Kamala Harris elected VP of the USA
It’s so sad that Black women are still looking for role models. Don’t get me wrong, I think Kamala is fantastic. But in a moment of celebration it’s also quite telling to see how many little girls felt like “no one” looked like them before.
Homemade Corn Salsa
I fell in love with Trader Joe’s corn salsa but since there isn’t one near me, I had to figure out how to make it at home. I followed this copycat recipe from The Cafe Sucrefarine and I absolutely love how it turned out.
Plaza Mella – Havana, Cuba
In 1925, Mella was expelled from the University after he and fellow students forcibly took over the university and made demands including modernizing text books and free education for all. After being accused of a bomb plot, Mella was expelled from the University for this “radical”, political involvement. Once freed from jail, Mella fled to Mexico, where he was assassinated under suspicious circumstances just a few years later, in 1929, at just 26 years old.
The First 2020 Presidential Debate
In My Opinion: I’m shocked and appalled every time I hear Trump’s speak. He reminds me of every entitled White man I’ve ever met. While the world is fairly aware of the stereotypes assigned to people of color, we rarely address “What White Men Be Like”. We’ve finally encountered the age of identifying “Karen’s” but what about the “Trumps”?
