About Me

Hi, I'm Maggi and thanks for stopping by

I'm a curious being venturing out on a life-long journey. Join me as I chronicle my ups and downs to an eco-friendly lifestyle and everything in between. It will be a mash up of Health NewsDIYRecipesReviewsNatural Hair and more.

I started it as a challenge to maintain a healthy lifestyle. After returning natural with my hair, I decided to take it a step further. I learned different ways to care for my hair. Mixing all natural ingridients such as honey, coconut oil, eggs, and the likes. I was in awe at how healthy it was. All I had to do was look in the kitchen and let nature take it's course.

With the help of mother nature, I also learned about all natural skin care. For years I was using commercial products that promised results. They only made my skin worst. Again, I was in the kitchen mixing away. Now I'm focusing on what I put inside my body.

That's the hard part, cuz' ain't nothing like them artery clogging foods. I'm no green giant and I'm aware of the challenges. It can be pricey, but through research and bargain shopping. I'll be able to acheive the results that I'm looking for.

This blog will also be used to help me improve my quality of life. I've had a few set-backs in my life, and I had two options: let those experiences destroy me or learn from it and grow from there. It's not always easy to do especially when there's no real support system. But I'm determined to get to where I want to be or I will die trying.

I'm also a runner training for my first marathon half-marathon. My first run (5k) was in 2012 and I've been running ever since. You can keep up with my running journey here.

I run an Instagram page called Black 40 Plus Fitness. It’s a fitness motivation page for the melanin 40 plus fitness community. I started it after I turned 40 and I got my first gym membership. I was looking for motivation to keep going and when I didn’t find what I was looking for , I created the page. The feedback has been amazing. Health is wealth!
