Embracing Adaptation

September 21, 2017 | No Comments

When I was younger, I was meticulous about my schedule. I planned for the weekend a week ahead, and I planned for my future years ahead. I loved doing it. And I’d cringe when something got in the way of my plans, even if it was just that my plans were shuffled around by a […]

What is Love?

September 21, 2017 | 1 Comment

Baby don’t hurt me.. don’t hurt me no more. Okay, some real talk though. I’ve been talking about love, sex, and relationships a lot lately with people. Everyone seems to be looking for different things and have a different opinion about it all. I have my own opinion about it too, but it changed so much […]

Strengths and Weaknesses are Circumstantial

September 21, 2017 | No Comments

  So, one of my favorite questions is “what are your weaknesses”? It’s weird, but I like it for a few reasons. It tells you how self aware someone is. It also tells you what someone perceives to be a weakness. And lastly, it gives you an idea of what their strengths may be because the […]

‘Cause You Had a Bad Day

January 8, 2017 | No Comments

  I know everyone has bad days sometimes. I don’t know how your bad days go, but some of those days for me are triggered by something big, some are because I’ve just become exhausted overtime and need a break, or some days are aggravated by a bunch of little things. Maybe I’m being particularly emotional […]

Açaí *ah-sigh-EE* Berry

November 14, 2016 | 4 Comments

  I have been into smoothies and smoothie bowls in the past, but I haven’t gotten that into acai bowls until I moved to Atlanta. It’s probably pretty apparent that I’m new to the acai berry, as I’ve been pronouncing it wrong for the last 4 years as a-kai instead of ah-sigh-EE so for those […]

Chase Down Your Passion

October 2, 2016 | 2 Comments

“Chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night.” YOLO, right? I mean life is short in the sense that the only definite thing you have is the moment, and once it’s over things may or may not change. Before you know it, time will pass you by so quickly that you didn’t even […]

My Go-To Green Smoothie

September 16, 2016 | No Comments

  Who cares about green smoothies right now, it’s Friday. Time to party up. Well, health is a passion of mine that’s been in a lull. I got caught up in having my first big girl job and having an exciting life again, so I left my health priorities on the back burner. However, everyone […]

Light Reading Over Lime Coffee

September 11, 2016 | No Comments

HAPPY SUNDAY! I hope all of y’all had a great weekend thus far, and are letting it continue whether that means getting drunk over mimosas (or beer or wine as I know some of my friends are today), starting the day with a morning hike, taking some time to yourself, or doing whatever else you […]

Food, Friendship, and a Stuffed Pepper Recipe

September 9, 2016 | 2 Comments

Food is good. Good friends are the best. And the best friends keep you from starving. The last few weeks, I haven’t really been prioritizing my healthy habits like I usually do. I was emotionally tired and decided to substitute dinner with wine. Most of my friends would probably say that’s pretty unlike me, but hey […]

Vika Says Hey!

September 5, 2016 | 32 Comments

  FINA-F***ING-LY. Pardon my language. I have trouble deciding whether I’d rather act like a lady or be a BA, so I try to compromise on being a cocktail of sass and class. Still, there is something about swearing online that feels inappropriate. Love reading it. Feel weird writing it. ANYWAYS, the point is that […]
