Being vegan for the month, I cannot consume eggs and I’ve realized that it’s really hard to try and find things to eat for breakfast. I did some scrolling on Pinterest and found a recipe for Tofu Scramble — basically a healthier version of scrambled eggs.


Review: I would rate this meal a 7/10. Maybe I just miss scrambled eggs! I added a ton of seasonings to the recipe as well as corn and peppers, but it still tasted bland. I think that may just be the nature of tofu.

Next time, rather than just adding tomatoes, I will add pico de gallo since it has a much better taste than regular tomatoes!



Here are the songs I’m jamming to while at the gym!

  • With You x Drake x PARTYNEXTDOOR
  • Controlla x Drake
  • Grammys x Drake x Future
  • Sorry x Beyoncé
  • All Night x Beyoncé
  • Gotta Lotta x 2 Chainz x Lil Wayne
  • Voodoo x Frank Ocean
  • Tell Your Friends x The Weeknd


Jesus, help us know when to pursue, when to back down, when to let go, when to open up, when to share, when to listen, when to release, when to love well, when to forgive, when to give up bitterness, when to humble ourselves, when to stand up, when to pray. 

We give you every single one of our relationships — the awesome ones, the ones that drain, the ones conflicted, the ones confusing, the ones stumbling back, the ones familial, the ones with addictions, the ones far from Jesus, the ones of many years, the ones of few weeks, the ones online, the ones in person. 

Help us love well, release well, speak well and listen exceedingly.

This weekend I participated in my university’s Ring Ceremony. It was such an honor being recognized in front of my friends and family for completing the Gold Book in order to receive a free class ring. Texas State has an awesome tradition where class ring recipients put their ring on during the ceremony and put their hand in water from the San Marcos River. I am lucky to have my family live close by so they were able to join in on the festivities! To me, this was a mini-graduation and during this ceremony, it truly hit me that in less than 2 weeks I’ll be walking across the stage and done with undergrad! I am so fortunate to attend the best university in Texas and I am so proud to forever be a Bobcat.


I am not really a breakfast person. I usually am not that hungry in the early morning however, lately I’ve been trying to eat light in the morning since I know it’s the best thing for me! Here are some things that I love to eat in the morning before heading to school or work:

  • 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 cut up tomato sprinkled with salt, 1 chopped avocado
  • 1 smoothie:
    • a handful of frozen berry mix
    • 1 green apple chopped up
    • a handful of frozen pineapples
    • 2 tablespoons of doTERRA Slim and Sassy Chocolate Shake 
    • 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed
    • almond milk ( I don’t have a specific measurement, I just kind of pour until I feel satisfied)
    • 4 ice cubes
  • 1 green apple with a side of peanut butter
  • Whole grain toast with peanut butter and avocado on top (so good!)
  • 1 Active Yogurt Vanilla cup




Some of my friends know that I’ve been on this healthy kick lately! I’ve started paying attention to the things I eat. It’s amazing how much better you feel when you eat lots of fruits and vegetables throughout the day.

It’s been a hectic week so today I just wanted to come home, make a quick meal and relax.


  • 1 box of whole grain pasta
  • 1 tablespoon of whipped butter
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 1 head of organic broccoli
  • 1 handful of parmesan cheese

Note: chop your broccoli head, rinse and dry with paper towel before cooking/eating.


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add whipped butter, minced garlic and red chili flakes. Stir around until butter is melted.
  2. In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt for flavor and to avoid stickiness. Add box of whole grain pasta. Cook pasta uncovered for 9 minutes.
  3. In the non-stick skillet, add chopped broccoli and stir for 7 minutes.
  4. Add chopped broccoli to boiled pasta and stir for 3 minutes.
  5. Drain pasta and throw in a handful of parmesan cheese.





Music is poetry. It’s a form of escape. We listen to music when we celebrate, when we grieve, when we just feel like dancing in our room. I listen to music when I wake up, when I am getting ready for work, when I am walking to class and all moments in between. I love all types of jams but here are the songs I’m listening to at the moment:

  • Come and See Me ft. Drake x PartyNextDoor
  • The Life of Pablo (album) x Kanye West
  • Section x 2 Chainz
  • Formation x Beyoncé
  • Love on the Brain x Rihanna
  • Wanted x Kehlani
  • Grey x Travis Scott
  • Wonderful ft. The Weeknd x Travis Scott
  • March Madness x Future
  • Make Me Like You x Gwen Stefani
  • Self Righteous x Bryson Tiller



About a month ago, I was casually surfing Pinterest and found this super easy chili recipe that I cook all the time now! It is so delicious and literally only takes twenty to thirty minutes to make. Some of these items you may already have in your pantry or fridge!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • Salt and pepper for taste
  • 1 14-oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 14-oz can corn kernels, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tbsp hot chili flakes
  • 3/4 cup of shredded cheese

These last two aren’t part of the recipe but make the chili taste even better!

  • 1 scoop of sour cream
  • 2 slices of avocado


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add ground turkey and break into pieces. Brown the meat, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato paste, corn kernels, blacks beans and hot chili flakes.
  4. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, add shredded cheese and mix well.
  6. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
  7. Optional: top with sour cream and additional cheese

This recipe is so versatile. You can eat the chili with some chips or add the chili into some taco shells.



I spoke briefly on this a few posts ago but this weekend I had the honor of being in a bridesmaid in my dear friend’s wedding.

The night was filled with so much happiness, love and joy! After hair and makeup prep, a photographer met us in our hotel room and took photos of the bride and the rest of the bridal around the hotel and outside hotel. The weather was perfect which meant perfect lighting so I’m so excited to see how those photos turned out!

The ceremony and reception both took place at Abel’s on the Lake which is in Austin, Texas. During the ceremony, you could feel the sun and clouds smiling down on the bride and groom. The audience smiled from ear to ear as Holly and Michael read their vows to one another. The ceremony ended with a sweet kiss and that is when party started!

Funky dance moves lots of drinks, many laughs are the perfect phrases to describe the rest of the evening. Couples danced the night away. Little children ran around the venue, giggling. The night ended with sparklers on the lake dock with the bride and groom sailing away on a small boat.

This was my first time being apart of a bridal party and it was such a blast! Peek some photos I took!

This Tuesday will be my 22nd birthday! I honestly can’t believe that is has already been a year since I’ve had my first (strong) margarita from Chimy’s on the Square! I remember I went to Chimy’s after class on this day. I was too excited about ordering my first drink that I asked the waitress for 2 drinks … She denied me saying that it was only one drink per person. Thank God she did because one was good enough!

This year for my birthday, I’ll spend some time at home with my family and later head to dinner with some close friends!

This year has been a year of so much growth. I’ve learned so much about myself. I’ve pushed myself out of my comfort zone mentally, physically and spiritually. I have conquered challenges. I have gained everlasting friendships and have had some really great laughs! I am so proud of the woman I am today. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish in a year’s time.

2016 is going to be a year of many changes for me. I will be graduating college in a few months. I will (hopefully) have a fantastic job that I love and learn from. My family will be relocating from San Antonio to Nashville and honestly who else knows what is going to happen! Either way, I’m ready for it. xoxo
