I’m NOT a Number!

I’m NOT a Number!

An object sits in a corner, starring at me, waiting for me, waiting to judge how well I’ve done with my choices I’ve made through the week. I feel, I’m not alone though, there are a lot people around me, that have been there or are there right now. Like the queen in Snow White, asking the mirror who’s the fairest of them all, we tend to treat the scale like a mirror. Instead, it’s a mirror we look down…

Come As You Are, Without a Mask

Come As You Are, Without a Mask

A couple of week’s ago, my brother asked me if I could take a particular picture of him, using an idea he had. When he told me about his idea, I absolutely loved it, of course, I’m a sucker for metaphors, especially when it’s God intervening. This post, was inspired, by my brother’s idea of, “Removing your mask when you come to God.” Have you ever seen those teenage/young adult movies based on high school or college? Sometimes, the cafeteria scenes are filled…

Prince of Darkness

Prince of Darkness

These past 2 weeks, have been, quite an eye opener for me, with a MAJOR lesson that was in it. It inspired me to make this post and I hope and pray that it’ll reach out to someone as well. Enjoy.   As the sun rises at the end of the street, a traveler walks down towards the way. The traveler, is tired of his past haunting him and at times, feels defeated. When he feels that it has disappeared, the…

TIU Banana Reese Smoothie

TIU Banana Reese Smoothie

I HAVE A RECIPE FOR YOU ALL!!!!!!!! ^Before the video filming^ ^After the video filming^ Let’s explain a bit of background first to why this smoothie deserved to be shared…. One day last week, I felt like a bottomless pit, like I could NOT get enough to eat. It was probably because I binged on a bit to much sugar the night before. Yeah, I learned, that even dried fruit(dates) can have the same effect on me as regular sugar,…

Forgiven not Forgotten

Forgiven not Forgotten

It’s been almost a year, since I wrote my Closure post and I can’t believe how time flies. It seems like yesterday I was writing in my journal all my anger, hate, hurt, frustration, tension, sadness, and darkness I had towards someone. Someone may ask, “Kayla, why do you keep looking back at the past? You should already be moved on by now.” Unfortunately, a lot of us may not always be “fully” moved on. There can still be crumbs…

Tan Blondies Recipe

Tan Blondies Recipe

 Dark, ooey, gooey, soft, crumbly, delicious, and so close to guilt free, it’s crazy. They’re… TAN BLONDIES!!!! I LOVE to try new recipes and return to some of my favorites I’ve used in the past. But, every now and then, I LOVE to head to the kitchen, turn on some music, and come up with my own recipe. I’ve got plenty of recipe cards to prove it. Some, are unusual while other recipes, are more, “Ah, yeah, I’d eat that.” They call…
