My Year In Review 2017 & Eco-Update 6

This year went by fast huh? How is it possible that 2017 is coming to an end? Time flies when you're having fun I guess. Anyways, here's my yearly recap of my ups and downs to this eco-friendly lifestyle.

Chatty Collaborations

My year for collaborations was so much better than 2016. I'm all about collaboration over competition. I really enjoy twitter chats. I enjoy them so much that I started my own. It all started when I did this this challenge. I got a few questions about it and that's when I had a lightbulb moment. I started hosting monthly chats surrounding topics that has helped me along my journey.

What is a twitter chat? It's a real time virtual conversation with a specific topic. There are guest(s) and a moderator meeting at a scheduled date and time to chat. The moderator asks questions that the guest(s) and/or participants answers. There's also a unique hashtag to go along so that everyone can see the virtual conversation anywhere in the world.

The planning, scheduling, and executing gave me a natural high. Did everything go as planned? Nope! There were a few bumps in the road. But I enjoyed and believed in what I was doing so much that I didn't give up. I simply worked with what I have and go from there. Thanks to all that participated in my "clueless" chats. If you missed the chats, check out the recaps below.

My First Conference

I went to one of the largest conference for women content creators, social media influencers, and entrepreneurs in the world. BlogHer17 took place in Orlando and I made sure to be a part of it. This year's conference was lucky number 13 and Blog Her first time in my home state of Florida.

There were over 2000 in attendance. I got to connect with a few familiar faces and meeting new ones for the first time. I heard from some extraordinary keynote speakers. Women like Chelsea Clinton, Cecile Richards, Serena Williams, Ana Navarro, Joy Ann Reid, Gabrielle Reece, and more. Before the start of each keynote there was a meditation session with Starr Barbour, Ananda Leeke, and Latham Thomas which I really liked.

There was an expo hall where attendees can have a one-on-one with sponsors of the conference. I was able to meet with a few of them. One of my favorites was Day Owl Rose. I visited them often and knew how to get to their booth with my eyes closed. I also met, took a pic, and got a signed copy of celebrity chef Carla Hall's cookbook.

MY YAY'S

-Break Out Sessions. Trends in Health, Fitness, Wellness, and Nutrition session. If you've been following my blog for a while, then you know why I attended. It was a no brainer for me to attend this session. The topics being covered were on nutrition, meditation, self-care, mindfulness, and cannabis.

Another session I enjoyed was Intimate Writing: How To Balance Your Private and Public Personas. I walked out of this session very pleased. I knew I wasn't crazy for sharing what I share on my blog. Deciding how much or little to share is up to the individual without any added pressure. There was also talks about online safety and I was nodding my head in agreement every step of the way.

-Networking. I got out of my comfort zone and introduced myself to a few people. I met some new bloggers and I was enjoying the energy. I also attended the black bloggers meet up and kept the networking going. I was chatting it up with a blogger I met at the newbie breakfast earlier in the day. I think it was the most chatty I've ever been.

Y'all should have seen me fan-girling when I saw a blogger that was featured on my Green Light Features. Whew! I didn't scare her away. After that moment, we hugged and parted ways. That was a super cool moment. I saw her several times afterwards and I let her be. I know I'm not always going to have that kind of moment with everyone I meet. (this will all make sense at the end of this post)

-Wifi/App. Gotta give credit where it's due. As bloggers good internet connection is a must and Blog Her was on top of it. They had a wifi zone area that easily connects to the internet. There was also charging stations in the expo hall if you needed to charge your gadgets. Dope! I didn't have any problems with my connections. Last but not least, Blog Her had their very own app that I downloaded for FREE. With this app you can connect with other bloggers, set your schedule, and follow along with what was coming up next during the conference. I believe you can also tweet directly from the app but I didn't utilize that part of it. I think that app was beautifully designed and I truly enjoyed the user friendly features.


THING'S THAT MAKE YOU SAY HMMM...

-Swag Bag. It was a miss for me. That's it! Moving right along...

-$$$$. It wasn't cheap. I did take advantage of the early bird pricing for the full 2 day conference. Thankfully, the conference was a few hours away from me and all I had to do was drive there. Can you guess what part of this trip was the most expensive? The hotel. When it came time to my hotel stay I was like... this gon' cost me how much?

FYI: I didn't stay at the host hotel which was the Hilton Bonnet Creek. What had happen was.... by the time I was ready to book, it was SOLD OUT for the Blog Her rate. I started biting my nails debating if I should stay at a cheaper hotel away from the resort. But as many times as I visit the Orlando area, I stay getting lost so to avoid that I stayed across the street at the Wyndham Grand.

It is literally walking distance from the Hilton. I did my price comparison and it was about the same. There were other bloggers staying at the Wyndham so I didn't feel too bad. Be prepared to be paying extra fees on top of your stay. These resort hotels have a fee for everything per day. The price for hotel food and drinks is astronomical. They have a trapped audience so they can do whatever.

BlogHer did give us breakfast and lunch during the conference. But outside of that you're on your own. I did bring some spending money but the way my "I don't really need it" was set up, I didn't end up spending all of it. So if you plan on going save up your coins NOW!!!

-Break Out Sessions (Part 2). I know I know. I have my reasons. I was underwhelmed at one of the sessions I went too. I commend the panelist for sharing their knowledge. But a good portion of the session was just general information. I thought I was going to get new tangible information and I didn't. So what I'm saying is as a newbie don't have high expectations.

-Meeting Bloggers/Influencers. I'm not going to sugar coat this part at all. I'm just telling MY truth.


FACT: You will come in contact with people who you've been following/engaging with for years and they will act like they don't know you when they see you in person. Some just don't want to be bothered and you know what? Let.Them.Be. Keep it moving and maybe hit the unfollow button. I'm just sayin'.

True story (this is the part I was talking about above). I saw an influencer but I didn't know who she was exactly. I smiled at her and she just seemed focused on getting to her destination. I knew she was well known because of what was going on at the time. I'm standing there like... Where have I seen her before? Answer: Twitter timeline. My "clueless" self just happened to be in the area checking things out so that I won't miss out on where I need to be.

It wasn't until one of the keynotes, she walks out on stage and I'm sitting there like... oh ok, that's the girl I smiled at earlier... and now I know why she was like that. What's the lesson here? Don't take it personal if your fave isn't always "ON". Everybody has their moments.

Overall, this introvert enjoyed her time at the conference and would go to another depending on the cost and location. I didn't have any major issues getting in and out of the conference area. My goal was to learn as much as possible and make genuine connections. It can be overwhelming but with proper planning it won't feel like it. My experience is my experience and I shared what it was like for ME. I don't want to discourage anyone looking to connect, learn, and grow.

Check out some of the other events that I went to. 


Clueless Travels

Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection. -Lawrence Durrell

That quote tells no lies. This year I traveled more than I did than any other year. I got my stamps to Budapest and Oslo. I do plan on going back and looking forward to other international destinations. When I'm not traveling abroad, I'm exploring more of my home state of Florida. I've been mostly traveling the southern part of the state. One of my goals is to do the entire state. Like... there are other cities besides Miami and Orlando to explore. One of my new favorite city is Sarasota. I look forward to seeing what other Florida city becomes a fave.


Working With Brands, Bloggers, and/or Network Communities

FACT: A good majority of bloggers (especially when starting out) have worked with brands for FREE whether they admit it or not. *raises hand* I have. We all have to start somewhere. However, I'm in no way saying that once you're established you should continue working for free.

This year I've gotten a few brands (and some individuals) in my inbox wanting to "collaborate". These are brands/individuals that claim to be a "fan" of my blog but have never engaged or follow me on social media. Some of these brands align with my journey, others do not. I've had some reaching out to me as if I've already agreed to promote their brand on my site. Then there are the ones that's a perfect match but won't pay or the offer is just not worth it.

Like when this one brand reached out to me and I declined because they claimed to not have the "budget". At the time, I just so happened to know of another blogger who worked with that brand and it appears that this blogger was paid. It was noted by the blogger that the post was sponsored. The same brand that told me they didn't have the "budget" flat out lied to me. I was like...


It was clear to me that this brand was trying to use me to promote their brand and I was so glad I was not in desperate mode. My advice for bloggers is DON'T BELIEVE THESE BRANDS WHEN THEY TELL YOU THEY DON'T HAVE THE BUDGET. I want to build working relationships (I'm pretty much done with just doing reviews) but a lot of brands don't care enough to do so.

So I hear that it's the year of micro-influencer's but a lot of these brands continue to just work with those who are well known and/or have "the look". These brands promote the be yourself mantra but in order for them to work with you, they want you to be more like (insert well known blogger/influencer here). *sighs* Which one is it? The stories I've heard surrounding some of these brands is really disheartening. It took me years to get out of my comfort zone and be myself but in order to work with me, I'm expected to go back to that comfort zone so that XYZ brand can tell me how to be me. No thank you!

Exactly how I feel.

Don't get me started with some of these blogging communities. I don't care if I get blacklisted, unfollowed, and/or muted for what I'm about to say. I really don't get the muted part. I seriously rather be unfollowed than muted. Why torture yourself if you know you don't like me? If you know how to use your critical thinking skills, keep reading this part. If not, I could care less about your feels.

Anywhoo, a good portion of the black blogging community is VERY cutthroat. We say we're united but we're not. We say it's not a competition but it is. I'm just keeping it real. A lot of us know this put choose to stay quiet just so we don't lose followers. Unlike most, I don't let the numbers, likes, and RT's validate me. Almost every other day I see another blogger sharing his/her story of being used/betrayed by someone they trusted. A lot of the time, that someone looks just like them. I've been there and all I can say is learn from that experience and try again.

Do I look like I do blind loyalty?

I've come across some spaces that started out with humble beginnings and welcomed you to the table. But as soon as they gain popularity, they flip the script and you're no longer welcomed. But guess what? You're still expected to blindly support their projects. People are very funny on social media. I'm a point where I started distancing myself from certain spaces. I'll go on pages that promote empowerment, sisterhood, support, and I have to pick my mouth off the floor at some of the toxic messages being promoted.

FYI: I believe in empowerment, sisterhood, support, and more but I'm not going to act like I don't smell the bullshit with some communities. So I follow that gut feeling and quickly X out, unfollow, or block that page. I shouldn't be 😡 every time I see your ish on my timeline. Even with a lot of the negativity, I've still been able to connect with some dope ass people on and offline. I focus and support those that I trust. I'm no longer blindly supporting those that don't support me.

Clueless Eating

Earlier this year I went plant based for a month and I enjoyed the experience. My goal was to find easy and delicious plant based recipes that are not boring or bland. Happy to say that I've found a few. Having the right seasonings makes all the difference. Did you know that there is a difference between being plant based and vegan? Yeah, I thought they were interchangeable and they're not. 

Related Reading: Defining Different Strokes

Vegans: Eat no animal products some even go as far as not wearing clothes made from animals such as leather. Most might even be animal rights activist. It's a way of life. (I've met some vegans in person and quite a few of them have told me they went vegan for health reasons and not necessarily for the animals)

Plant Based: Eats whole fruits and vegetables, grains, and non-processed foods as possible. Most likely wear clothing made from animals and are not necessarily animal rights activist. 

I also watched the documentary What The Health and people left and right were going vegan. That's cool and all but I'm going to be completely honest. After watching it, I was not moved to be a vegan. I'm not looking for cool points with the vegan/plant-based community. Listen... I gave up fried chicken but baked chicken is here to stay. 

I'm aware of what's going on in the food and health industry. I truly believe there is a link to keep us sick. A plant based diet I can do and I've reduce my consumption but not 100%. The Haitian in me ain't ready. I try to be mostly plant based during the day but come dinner time... it's on. To each their own. 

I finally made it to Instagram y'all. I know, I know... I'm forever late. I don't know how some of y'all do it being on every outlet. The thought of managing another account... LordT! The way my simplicity is set up. Anyways, I made it and you can stay "clueless" with me there. I share a lot of my travels, fitness, minimalism, events, and more there before it hits the blog. Why am I bout ready to delete it though? That explore tab is a total mindfuck.

Green Light- Tasha

I like knowing that I'm helping and not harming this planet says this eco-sista

How long have you been eco-friendly? I've been eco-friendly for about 5 years.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? I chose to become eco-friendly for my health and animal well being. Our daily activities affect all living things. Becoming eco-friendly meant tuning into this.

What do you like about it? I love knowing that I'm HELPING and not harming this planet. 

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? I didn't have obstacles, after watching documentaries like Vegucated, Food Matter, and Earthlings, I was able to make changes to my diet and spending practices. We can't worry about what others are going to think or how we will be perceived for making these changes. When it feels right to soul, LISTEN. 

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? Even small changes matter! Do what you can. 

Going green can be complex. This discourages a lot of people. There's really no "right" way it's basically trying to do something than nothing at all. I sometimes feel like a green hypocrite. Do you feel that way sometimes? Sometimes, but then I remember that nobody's perfect. That I'm trying and doing my best. Changing your lifestyle doesn't happen overnight so be patient!

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I've been natural for about 10 years. My loc journey started 2 years ago. The best advice I can give to anyone wanting to go natural is to JUST LET IT BE!

I Went To The Seed Food And Wine Festival


I went to the Seed Food And Wine Festival in Miami and I'm sharing what it was like as a non-vegan living in a plant based world for a few days. The event took place in various parts of the city. Check out the "cluelessness" below. 

Food Forward- A one of a kind conference to discuss and celebrate the conscious and  sustainable changes happening in the food industry. Topics that were discussed: Creating A Sustainable Business Culture, The Rise Of The Plant Based Menu, Funding Food Innovation, Building Green Communities, and Keynote Address by Mariana Cortes from Bunnie Cakes.


My Highlights-The panel discussion on Building Green Communities. Asha Loring, who is the founder of Health In The Hood was on the panel and talked about the work being done in low income areas. Yesssss! Go 'head girl.

There was a roof top lunch that was provided by Chef Fabio Vaccarella and Celebrity Chef Events. The skyline was oh so beautiful.

Kick Off Party- This took place at Casa Florida. Cocktails, beats, and bites by some of the best mixologists in the country welcoming foodies, influencers, and content creators to start the week off to the festival.


My Highlights- Talk about exclusive. I drove by this place like 3 times wondering where is it? So I parked my car, took out my phone, looked up, and I was right in front of it. There were no signs. This place is super dope and is right near the Miami River (Little Havana area). The historic homes truly gave it an old Florida vibe.

Seed Summit- A two day conference full of workshops, panels, networking, and more.


My Highlights- Hearing Desiree and Nzingah speak on the Breaking The Vegan Mold panel. On the real, there's a myth that you have to be white to be a vegan and/or plant-based. That's so not true. Both shared their experience on embracing their culture while on their journey.

I also had a one on one chat with Nzingah. We're both of Haitian descent and we talked about some of the challenges in the culture because it is very rare to be Haitian and not eat meat. Even though I'm not vegan or 100% plant-based, I've been the butt of jokes for my healthy eating habits. *sighs*

Plant Based Burger Battle- Plant based burgers made by some of the top chefs in the country where celebrity judges choose their favorites but the crowd cast their vote for the best veggie burger in America.


My Highlights- Lil' ol' me was a culinary assistant for Chickpea and Olive. This was fun! It was like being on the Food Network. Their calexico burger made with homemade beet patty, avocado, pickled red onions, pickled jalapeños, v-cheddar cheese, chipotle aioli, lettuce, and tomato was very good in my opinion. I'm not just saying this because I was assisting. Just about anything with avocado has my heart.

Catwalk- A Night Of Conscious Fashion- This was the first annual fashion show for the festival. Celebrities, models, and influencers strut the runway with the latest cruelty-free fashion.


My Highlights- The Sacred Space Miami. Another dope spot for all things health and wellness. I'll be back.

Seed Festival Day Tasting Village- An all day plant-based tasting experience with speakers, demos, shopping, and more.


My Highlights- The food. Duh! The lines were long at some places. I didn't get the chance to try them all. Why are people so greedy? 😆 But the ones I did try, didn't disappoint. My favorite I have to say is Plant Miami. Their Truffle And Baby Kale Noodle was seriously delish. 😋 I have got to go back and do a full review of the restaurant.


The few days I spent at the festival was an experience to remember. I met some dope ass people and ate some really delicious and nutritious plant based foods. I grew up in Miami and a lot sure has changed. I don't ever remember seeing this many plant-based restaurants and there's more to come. This event has put Miami on the map as one of the top vegan/plant-based cities in America. 

I'm so glad I opened up my mind to try new things. I may not have liked everything but I enjoyed a lot. People from all walks of life were at the festival. Everyone from staunch vegans to those who are simply curious. All was welcome. So if you're looking for a plant based event to go to, check them out.

"Clueless" Review- Love Life Wellness Cafe


Love Life Wellness Center is full circle center focused on a holistic approach to health. The center strives to cultivate a conscious community and offer a well rounded holistic based programming. The center is located in the Wynwood area of Miami. They have a list of classes that I can't wait to try. They also host monthly events that are always health related. 

The center also has a cafe that provides clean and nutritious food with the freshest ingredients. It's the winner of the 2016 Best Plant-Based Burger in America after winning Seed Food and Wine Festival Burger Battle. They came in second place at this year's festival. I had to check this place out and of course the food. 

Tacos

I had the house special tacos. It came with 2 corn tortillas, lentil walnut "meat", pico, mixed greens, avocado spread, cashew crema, spicy mango, cilantro, and kale salad on the side. 

Isn't it a beauty? These tacos were delicious. The lentils acted as the meat substitute. I honestly thought I was going to be disappointed but I wasn't. I was totally satisfied with the taco and would definitely try it again. Most of their customers are like me non-vegans looking for delicious and nutritious meals. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for healthier options. 


The center recently celebrated their 2 year anniversary and of course I was there to play my part in being greedy celebrating. There was live music, plant-based food, kombucha, wine, desserts, and good vibes throughout the center.  If you're ever in Miami (Wynwood), check them out.

Green Light- Dezi

You don't have to give up everything says this eco-sista

How long have you been eco-friendly? Just about 4 years.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? I found out that I was born with one kidney and two uterus while I was in high school. Although it was a shocking discovery, I continued to live my life as a "regular teenager". Which included lots of things I would say today are unhealthy and I definitely felt it. I was constantly sick, on antibiotics, missing school, and yet what I was eating or the products I was using never popped into my mind as a contributor. I began to educate myself on holistic health. Learning about the pharmaceutical industry, and reading about the ingredients in everything I used. It then became a no-brainer for me to change my lifestyle to a more eco-friendly one. 

What do you like about it? I like that it makes ME feel good. And I'm not talking about that "feel good" when you do a good deed... I physically feel better. Not only am I healthier, but I feel more conscious and connected to my body. I feel way more in tune with myself more than I ever have before and it feels great. 

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? Growing up I struggled with being a perfectionist. Getting the best grades, never being satisfied with my accomplishments or achievements, and feeling like I wasn't doing enough. When I began this journey and was taking the time to educate myself, I felt like I had to change my entire life. I felt like no matter what I changed, it wasn't enough because even the air we breathe is polluted (I had many "woke" moments lol). But as I began to break it down, I was able to make small effective changes over a period of time rather than become so overwhelmed that I change nothing. 

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? Take it step by step. One of the videos that I include on my YouTube channel is "Swap or Flop", where I show around 5 products that you'd normally use (such as Colgate toothpaste) and I compare it to an alternative with less chemicals, recyclable packaging, and all around eco-friendly. Then I tell you if it's a Swap- I love the product and will throw out my old chem-filled Colgate for it OR Flop- did I hate it and I'm never using it again. Applying this same technique every month will allow you to feel less overwhelmed and soon you'll notice how many swaps you've made. All you have to do is look around you and get started. 

Going green can be complex. This discourages a lot of people. There's really no "right" way it's basically trying to do something than nothing at all. I sometimes feel like a green hypocrite. Do you feel that way sometimes? SOMEONE GETS ME! No really, I say it all the time that I'm a hypocrite and I'm kind of okay with that. I want people to know that you don't have to give up EVERYTHING you love. You can be eco-friendly, use holistic medicine, and shop at a farmer's market without being a "hippie". That's why my bio on Twitter says "I like Hennessy and Green Juice" because I really do. I do what works best for me and although there's always room for improvement, I'm a work in progress. If you're a meat eater, you get criticized by vegetarians. Vegetarians get criticized by vegans. Vegans get criticized by those on "raw fruits diets" plus everyone else. As long as you see improvement within yourself and it makes you feel good, keep doing that.

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? Almost one year! ***reggae horns*** I grew up in a Dominican hair salon, getting my hair blow dried since who knows how young. Like most of us, I became conditioned to straight hair and the false sense of beauty that came with it. If my hair was straight, I was getting compliments on how nice it was but when it was curly, it was a beast that needed to be tamed. This past year has been all about haircuts, deep conditioning, playing with different styles/products and let me tell you it has paid off! I've never seen my curls as nice as they are right now and they're only getting better. There are no shortcuts. Throw out your flat iron and watch the magic happen. Also, do your research on where to get a good curly cut. That's what got me really excited about my journey and where I learned how to style and keep it fly. ;)

Is there anything you like to add? I'm an open book. So, if you ever have questions about anything I post please feel free to reach out. Speaking and connecting with other women brings so much fulfillment to my life so do not hesitate. If this journey is new to you just know that myself and all of the amazing some featured on this blog have been through it and are going through it so you're never alone. Cut yourself some slack but push yourself to be a better you than you were yesterday.

Wanderlust 108- Miami


I went to Wanderlust 108 and I'm still high off it. It was one of thee best self-care practices that I've ever done for myself. Wanderlust 108 is the world's only mindful triathlon. It combines mindful activities starting with a 5k run, yoga, and meditation. It's a celebration of the mindful movement. I heart going to events like this. When I saw the opportunity to go, I went for it.

Wanderlust Arch

The arch was the meeting point for the start of the 5k. The location for the event was in Miami on historic Virginia Key Beach. There's a lot of history on that beach and I will do a follow up post on it. It was a beautiful run. Even though some parts of the beach had debris/damage due to Hurricane Irma, that didn't stop the running. Take that Irma!


After the run, it was yoga with Chelsey Korus. Chelsey is one of the top yoga instructors in the country. She's been teaching yoga since the age of 15 and has been going ever since. 


Last but not least, was meditation with Dave Smith. Dave is a buddhist meditation teacher, addiction treatment specialist, speaker, and author. 


After all the mindfulness, I went to get lunch then off to my scheduled activities. I walked around to check out some of the vendors. The adidas dome was super cool. I meet Barbara, owner of Jacq's Organics and international holistic health coach Koya Webb. It was such a great moment. I also meet other people from all walks of life. 

AIReal Yoga

I've been wanting to do aerial yoga for the longest time. I finally got the chance to do it while at Wanderlust. *scratches off bucket list* Aireal Yoga is done using a looped fabric that swivels freely. It's designed for all levels of yoga. I really enjoyed this class and I was a fool on the hammocks. Just straight clownin'. *saves up coins to get a yoga hammock so I can spread my wings like a butterfly*

Wanderlust partnered with No Kid Hungry. For every ticket that was purchased $1.08 was donated to provide healthy meals for kids in need. I'm glad to have played a part for a great cause. Words can't explain how much I loved this event. I will definitely be back again and again and again. The music played by DJ Drez was exactly what I needed. I left the event feeling recharged and I really didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend Wanderlust to anyone looking for a self-care event. I can't wait for the next one.
