African Black Soap- Skincare Routine

When you have a chronic illness, your body changes. Lately I’ve been struggling with irritated, itchy, and flaky skin on my face(painful, annoying, and gross). I stopped wearing makeup for a week to see if that would help, it didn’t. So, I decided to make liquid African black soap because it’s a great way to moisturize, cleanse, and soften your face while helping to reduce acne and eczema. This is my 3rd day using the liquid African black soap and it has made such a difference! I can even tell a difference from before I wash my face to after. My skin glows! I have an African liquid black soap DIY on my YouTube channel, search for Stylish and Fabulous. YouTube link in my bio. I buy my African soap bars from

James 1:2

Sometimes you have to just encourage yourself! It’s hard to not let what you’re going through take over your whole view.

Count It All Joy by The Winans is one of my favorite songs. Not letting situations discourage you is harder than it seems but with Christ’s power within the Christian, we can do it. We can overcome. Trials help us to become stronger in God and allow us to solidify that our faith is in God. With God, we will make it through.

James 1:2

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 🙏🏾

Still a Rockstar!

Today. Lips are CRAZY swollen but one of my super good friends reminded me I’m still a rockstar 😁 Positive words to get through the day. Putting ice on my lips at work to help the swelling go down some. Waiting on my test results for hereditary angioedema, hopefully I hear back this week. Praying for answers! Chronic illness is tough but God is bigger.

Self Love Monday- Sometimes You Just Have To Encourage Yourself

It’s SELF LOVE MONDAY!!!

🌻 It can be helpful to place scriptures and positive affirmations around you to encourage you throughout your day. I have scriptures and positive affirmations all around my desk at work. I am disciplining myself to look at these things when I’m starting to feel discouraged, sad, or what have you. Placing positive reminders around yourself is one way to show yourself love and to encourage yourself for those times when you don’t feel like you can. My lips are still irritated and have a burning sensation. My lips are also still cut open on the sides so open mouth smiling hurts because it re-rips open the cuts. Practicing my close mouth smile 😊 I’m pressing through. God has it all under control. He made the whole universe, surely he can take care of me.

Tell yourself today…

1) Have Faith

2) Pray and Be Fierce About It

3) Everything Is Going To Be OK

4) Have A Colorful Day!

Getting Things Done

Getting things done with a chronic illness is energy draining and requires lots of breaks so it takes me a long time to do everything. Can’t move my lips too much otherwise my skin cracks open due to the swelling that’s been happening again. On my list today to accomplish is laundry, straightening up my room, cleaning my bathroom, and meal prep. We’ll see what I get done 🤷🏽‍♀️ Wearing my @raynestorm2017 Black Panther bonnet 😍. Happy Friday!!

Frittata

The finished product! Here’s my take on a frittata(followed the recipe with a few modifications on ingredients). This one is pancetta, sweet potatoes, spinach, goat cheese, eggs, salt, and pepper. YUM!!

Low Fodmap Meal Prep

I’m getting back into specific eating lifestyle plans(hate the word “diet” because people misuse the word and it carries negative connotations) using my recipe books for meal prep. I’m making this recipe with a few modifications. Will post results later!
