One Of My Habits

I have many habits. Some healthy. Some not so healthy. Some that folks just do not understand. I guess this can be classified as a not so healthy habit that folks just do not, for the life of them, understand. Let me explain… I’m going through a ton of stuff right now. I’ve already posted a few of the things…

What Would You Do?

I woke up this morning stoked! I had a day of shooting scheduled. Just me and my camera. Our own little date. It had been a while since we spent any quality time together. I made it a purpose to correct that today. There is always a location in DC that I default to for pictures and just to hang…

It’s Time To Release IT

I am a huge fan of Prince, Morris Day and The Time, and other artists from the late 80s to early 90s. One of the movies that I just adore, and for some reason the rest of the masses cannot stand, is Graffiti Bridge. I’ve had that movie on my mind for some time now. The soundtrack is awesome. A…

I’ve Been A Bad, Bad Girl!

No! Not THAT kind of bad! Wrong blog. Lol. I went an entire week without Bodyrocking. A full seven days. I feel aweful! The excuse that I have is not even valid. I say that because working out could have alleviated some of that mess I was going through last week. Let me clue you guys into my week. It…

Day Long Errand Produces Backpack

Well, it wasn’t a complete day but it sure did feel like it. Maybe it was the time that I got started. I did head out towards the mid afternoon. Hmm… Anyway, I went to pick up this gorgeous backpack from my package receiver up north yesterday. It was about a four hour trip. Four hours. The cool thing is…

New Body Wash & Mid Week Surfing

{EAV:5d4e90ee8e3571e7} I took a trip to my not so local Whole Foods store in downtown Silver Spring last week. Picked up this little gem – Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps in Rose. I had been using the Hugo brand in Lavender before this. I wanted to try something new. You know…switch up my products. I do that from time to time.…

High Hopes & Bodyrocking

My day started off with a smile. I had a plan and I was sticking to it. Rise, thank the most high, Bodyrock, and make a very important phone call. That was going to take up most of my morning. I didn’t mind that. As long as I got it done. This phone call that I am referring to is…

Working Out The Webs

I have this cute little saying that I like to throw out when I’m in front of a huge plate of food/dessert that really isn’t good FOR me but is SO DELICIOUS. I like to say, “I work out so that I can eat like this.” Lately I’ve still been eating the way that I do but I haven’t really…

Numbing News & Hair Dye

I woke up to a phone call that provided me with really disturbing news. I have been aimlessly walking around in a daze ever since. I haven’t eaten yet. I feel a serious tension headache coming along. I am unable to concentrate on much at the moment. I’m pretty much numb. I will not get into the news that I…

LONG Overdue

As you all know, my car broke down on me. This information is known because I constantly bring it up. Mainly out of frustration. Nostalgia kicks in from time to time. This could be a reason why my car has been sitting in my driveway since the fall. Yes! Just sitting there! SMH. I am a huge advocate of cleaning…

Range Preference & BBQs On My Mind

First of all TGIF! *claps excitedly* My Friday is pretty slow. I had quite a day yesterday. A wonderful day. It kind of wore me out. So I slept in. I finally got around to preparing my breakfast around noon or so. Oatmeal was my breakfast of champions today. The range I cooked it on just happens to be electric.…

Hiding Out

I’m Still Around

I‘ve just been hiding out and keeping quiet for a while. No worries. Nothing bad has happened. No serious turmoil to report. A few down days but that comes with the territory, especially with me. As I’ve stated before, my current situation is way too hard for me to swallow. I have been getting out of the house. Not as…

Lent 2012: Letting Go & Building Confidence

For those of you that do not know, I am a confirmed Catholic. After many years of inner struggle and rebellion, I finally committed to this faith, for my own selfish reasons, in April of 2009. You see, I’m drawn to the patron saints. Other aspects of Catholicism I can do without. I call myself an Eclectic Catholic due to…

I Love Me Some Valentine’s Day

? I do, I do, I do, I do, I DO! ? Mostly, because of the CHOCOLATE! Yup. Never mind the cards, balloons, flowers, and the fancy dinners. Just give me some chocolate and I am a VERY happy lady! See how easy I am? *winks* This time of year the stores are overstocked with chocolate in anticipation of this…

It’s Not As Easy As I Make It Look

The bus driver that brings me home asks me the same question at least once a week. “Why are you always so happy?” I smile at him and simply tell him that I’m always happy. This is so not the case. People who are always happy 100% of the time, 24/7 are on some kind of drugs. They need to…

Issues With Sharing

I was taught from a very young age to share. Whether it be my toys, my food, or my time, I was told it was always a good thing to share. It was polite and the simple act of sharing brought one closer to whom they were sharing with. I find it interesting that I am having some serious issues…

Bring On The Meat

For the longest time my roommates thought I was a vegetarian. The majority of the meals that I would cook would be meatless. My famous and very easy one pot meals are an example of this. Nothing but pasta, veggies, and sauce. Well not tonight! I say BRING ON THE MEAT! There can be no doubt in their minds now…

My Fling With The DC Metro

I‘ve had kind of a fling since moving here to DC two years ago. It started off as mere curiosity. It eventually grew into a relationship of convenience. It was an on again, off again sort of thing. Definitely not needed. I already had an ongoing relationship going. I’m not talking about a man. I’m talking about the DC Metro…

Confessions Of A Deal Groupie

Hello, my name is Kionda, and I’m a Deal Groupie! I love, love, LOVE Groupon and LivingSocial deals. They are just so enticing to the eye, and since I was looking to get into the advertised activities anyway, they are light on the wallet. If you ask me I don’t really use them enough. I really don’t. Let me explain.…
