Go ahead judge me. I woke up like this #Flawless!!! I slept in my birthday makeup but that #toofaced liquid matte lipstick in #DropDeadRed is still popn’ tho.

After a night of excessive communion and breaking bread with friends, this was the perfect ending to a my pre-birthday turn-up weekend. A nice stroll on a sunny Hollywood afternoon to breathe some fresh air and eat some fresh food. All the venders food and layout was nice and clean. I really enjoyed the variety of foods they offered.Some fruits and vegetables are seasonal. I was so disappointed I didn’t get to buy some cotton candy plums. My mouth was literally watering for some sweet fresh fruit.tbucgelli_5 I stumbled upon this one vendor and bought a pineapple passion fruit lemonade to bring my inside back to life lol. Not a big fan of passion fruit juice but surprisingly it was delicious.

Soooo as I sipped and searched for food, my boo daddy keep raving about this lady that had good burritos. Not a huge fan of burritos. But as a foodie, I could turn down a gourmet meal on the go.

#tBuchelli ‘Big Ass Burrito’

I was soooo hungry and tired from last night I just wanted to eat and go back to sleep. Soooo as I was about to pass out, we finally found #tBuchelli Gourmet Sausages! He ordered the ‘Big Ass Burrito’ and I had the Ortega sausage burritos with cheese. Bomb dot com. I wish I had filmed my reaction because the flavors just burst into your mouth. One flavor didn’t over power the other; it was the perfect balance. The texture of the sausage was authentically savory in flavor with a hint a spice. I don’t do spicy but when I tasted the big ass burrito is was also very good. I’m a fan. I’m a believer! Next time no extra cheese tho lol.

#KahluasKonfessions: A Triple Threat. Beauty.Brains.Brawn

I am a triple threat that makes no promises for the outcome of our encounters. Just be honored that I’ve chosen you to share a piece of my time with. I am valuable. I offer more than just my looks. Come take a look inside.

MRM_bday16_2This journey of self love can be an exhausting one. #AllSummerSixteen for me was about finding a deeper meaning of self love and finding my Boaz with help from the practicing #TheWait (authors – Devon Franklin & wife, Meagan Good).

I have learned so much about the differences of what I need versus what I desire in my relationships. I even clarified a few of my deal breakers. The discipline of soul searching, finding your truths and a real life solution was an eye opening experiences. After reading #thewait book I felt my spirit man being elevated to the next level. I see the purpose of life trials and tribulations as test further strengthening my faith to receive the fullness of my blessings. Dating while celibate gave me a feeling of mental peace. I was able to to narrow the practice squad and even add few potential team players to the roster.

Listening is key component when practicing #TheWait. Dudes will tell you what you want to hear but if you keep your eyes open long enough, he will show you who he is.

MRM_bday16_1Truth is…once you get over the honeymoon phase, and reality sets in; the question then becomes what other character traits does he possess that can contribute to the building of our wealth, legacy and power. Love and potential doesn’t pay the bills. I was born a goal-digger. Hustle is in my heart. Power runs through my veins. I need compatibility AND chemistry not lust. #TheWait dating has brought out the brawns in me. Navigating through the piles of lies, lust, excessive baggage (both physical and emotional) and deceitful mannerism keeps me in shape. I run the opposite way instead of trying to figure out ‘why’ he was broken. Trying to to fix a man that is broken into a million pieces is physically and mentally impossible. I give it to God, say a pray for his wounded heart, block him then add him to the “do not call list’.

I’m excited about going into this next season equipmented with a better sense of self. Single? or Not Single? I am not going to apologize for being an attractive woman who just so happens to intelligent and powerful. Go ahead judge me because I’m a triple threat. Beauty. Brains. Brawn. Lips #POPn while waving at my haters and naysayers. I stay slayed both physically and spiritually; #BookedandBlessed because I rely on my inner strength and faith combined with core values of Yahweh. Oh yeah and treating people with love and respect despite their shortcomings will also give you favor.

MRM_bday16_3Check out my YouTube musical stress reliever playlist called #Summer16 #BeautyRevenge. I may be flawed (doing this dating stuff) but my makeup is perfect.

Xox.

#RebukeTheCalories: Spring Comfort Foods

There is something a California rain that’s sexy but especially during seasonal changes. The domestic goddess deep inside me was craving all sorts of yummy fattening comfort foods. I #RebukeTheCalories in name of Jesus and decided to cook a few healthy comfort food options instead. Just because I’m hibernating for the weekend doesn’t mean I’m undoing months of suffering and sacrificing for the fashion gawds. I’m still watching my girlish figure. Memorial Day is in two weeks. Summer is just around the corner. Oh the yummy temptations. A quick store run before the real heavy rains comes, I made sure all essential foods and snacks were stocked. I prepared a grocery list keeping in mind what foods I already have at home that I can incorporate my lifestyle meal plan and my monthly food budget.

Grocery List:

  • Bell Peppers
  • Parmesan
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Tomato soup
  • Basil seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Sourdough bread
  • Rice O Roni Herb & Butter Flavored
  • Chicken breast
  • Bacon
  • Mixed greens salad
  • Caesar dressing

Meal 1 includes stuffed roasted bell peppers top with melted cheese. The stuffing is made of Rice O Roni and baked chicken breast.

Meal 2 includes a bacon grilled cheese sandwich with basil and garlic flavored tomato soup.

Meal 3 includes a mixed green salad topped with the left over chicken breast, bacon crumbs (chopped boiled egg optional) and caesar salad dressing with garlic parmesan cheese bread.
