Lately, I been spending a lot of time grounding on the beach. At least 3 times a week walking barefoot in the sand. I always noticed how well I felt when I was on the beach. In the morning my body is like the tin man, I’m so stiff and achy that it takes some time for my body to warm up. But 15 mins in on the beach, I find my body starts to feel good, I’m actually running around. No pain, no discomfort of any sort not even wheezing. On my beach days, I also noticed at night that my husband doesn’t need to tap my back. The inflammation in my back and on my wrist seem to go down and I sleep all night. The next morning, I wake up early and feel well rested. I’m seeing a pattern of this and decided to do some research.
When you have auto immune diseases like myself, I have 4 of them, you will understand when I say we’re always looking for ways to heal our bodies. In what I found I was experiencing is called Grounding and I went in hard wanting to know everything about it.
Grounding is also called earthing, and it’s a therapeutic technique that involves you doing activities that electrically reconnect you to the earth. Activities like walking barefoot, being in water, laying on the ground, and using grounding equipment. I haven’t purchased any because of my beach access here in Hawaii.
The great thing about Grounding is it’s free! You don’t have to order it online you don’t have to go to a luxe spa to receive this service. You can just walk out your door to the mailbox barefoot. You can go in your yard and just step on the grass. If you live near a beach you can go in walk around. It’s great for babies and kids. Get them out of those hard shoes and let their little feet run around free. Watch how relax they will be when they go inside. Definitely helps with crying. Give your body 30 mins barefoot and watch how well you feel. If you want to do it longer definitely go for it.
I just wanted to share this information because I found so much relief from it. If you’re reading this please share it with someone who’s dealing with any auto immune diseases, chronic pains and any other stress or anxiety issues. I think I want to do my sessions with my clients on the beach to help them as we go deep in conversations. This technique can help calm them.
Thanks for stopping by, Namaste 🙏🏾
All black ancestors are my role models. I cannot Thank You enough for everything that you went through to allow me to be free. I hope I have not let any of you down. I will continue to move with dignity so you can be proud.
Everyone is concern for Chris Rock and what this did to the Oscar’s on Sunday night. Let me get this out the way, violence shouldn’t be on TV but we see it in TV shows, on movies and its happening in real life. 😂😂😂 I’m not here for Will & Chris. I’m here to check on one person in that’s the real victim.
How is Jada handling everything?! So many of our peers struggle with depression and other mental issues. After Sunday night I’m wondering the same about Jada. Because she has an auto immune disease she can’t be stressing because it can lead to a flare up. I know about that very well. So while everyone is laughing and talking BS, I hope they can find it in their heart to stop talking negative about her and pray that she’s healing.❤️🩹
Strong people hurt too let’s remember that 💜🙏🏾

Many know me from just doing makeup & hair but before this glam world I was in the music business with Bad Boy Entertainment, Arista Records and Tommy Boy Records.
Black Rob was one of my talents that I worked very closely with. He was the definition of a New York street guy but he was sweet, he was respectful, he had a great sense of humor and he loved his brown liquor. 😂 😂
One of my special memories was giving him a WHOA cake at House Of Blues in New Orleans. He had just finished performing his single WHOA, had the place jumping. And I wanted to do something special for him on stage. You know something he wouldn’t except. In that touched him you know. 😢 I have so many other great stories that I will always remember. 💔😢 Almost my brother in law. Thanks for adding New Orleans on “WHOA” it was everything to ME!!! 🙏🏾
Hey My Fabulous Peeps!!!
Are you looking for a new highlighter that gives a beautiful and radiant glow? Well, I have one just for you. It’s from my makeup line, Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. It’s my favorite “Resting Bitch Face” and I paired it with “Pretentious” to warm up my skin. When I created “Resting Bitch Face” I first wanted it to have a name that would be iconic and I wanted it to be my Best Seller. I knew it would be an item that I would wear everyday and I wanted the color to brighten my face on my full cheeks. Because, I smile a lot I knew on my cheeks you would see that glow.
Below you will find the highlighters & lipsticks colors that I have on. On my lips is another favorite from my All Nighter lip collection called, Yes Bitch” and “Gurl Bye” from the metallic collection. With “Yes Bitch” when I finally was able to apply it on at the lab, the first thing that came out my mouth after checking myself out was “YES BITCH” and I knew that was going to be the name. Because when my Entitled Babe also put it on they were going to say the exact same thing (lmao). So, that’s how I come about with naming my items.
What Does The New 50 Look Like?! When I was a little girl, hearing the age 50 to me meant old or walking with a cane. Now that I’m 50 I don’t see that same picture of what a 50 year old person should look like. I use to ask my mom if she’s sure about my birthday because I’m not looking my age. But hunty, I feel my age. I once fallen while hiking on a wet rock and that fall took me out for days. So, yeah I don’t look 50 but my body feels 90.
Let me say this, I’m not someone that eats healthy, I drank Pepsi and Coke’s about 5 cans a day. I know its horrible for me and for my auto immune but I can’t stop drinking them, I don’t drink a lot of water. I love rum and champagne. I’m not big on exercising so my body is a little run down in the inside. But what I do well is, I take care of my skin with great skincare from La Mer & Armani and on my body beacuse I’m a beach bum, I love Sol de Janeiro products. I keep only positive things and people around me. I’m a happy person, I laugh a lot, I take naps when my body tells me and I spend a lot of time at the beach. So, that keeps my spirit happy and it shows on youthful face, I guess. I really live the ALOHA Lifestyle.
What is the ALOHA Lifestyle you ask. Here in Hawaii, ALOHA is a way of living, an attitude and expresses guidelines to help us in our lives. It’s kindness, patience, compassion, respect, togetherness, affection, empathy, peace, & love.
At the end of the day age is nothing but a number. Just live your life positive, stop being angry and do things that makes you happy.
