Vegan & Cruelty Free Makeup for Black Women

In 2017, I promised myself that I will be 100% vegan. This meant not only was I eating a plant-based diet, but also not buying any clothes with animal products or buying make-up with animal products.

My Obsession With Food

I have been obsessed with food for as long as I can remember. As a child, it was never difficult for my mother to feed me because I always ate everything I was given and even more. I loved food. I loved the sense of comfort it gave. I loved the memories it was tied... Continue Reading →

Curried Chickpea Soup

As a recipe developer, a lot of recipes I create, especially the first or second times I make them, always turn out bad.
