Hi, I created “Life Through Fancy Eyes” as a creative outlet to explore and develop life tools to help us see with our best(fancy) eyes.
It is so easy to get caught up in the struggles that comes with living and we forget to view life with our best eyes. My aunt always say that there is a bright side in a situation, we just have to look for it. In order to do that, we have to give ourselves a break from what is going on. We have to give ourselves a chance to regroup.
You may find topics on healthy living, plantbased/vegan recipes, hair care, self care, a dab of beauty & fashion with sprinkles of inspiration here. Take a deserving break with your favorite cup of deliciousness, whether it be tea, coffee, etc and sit back, relax & let’s journey through life with our “Fancy Eyes.”
Here are some facts about me
I have a BSW and M.S. degree in Psychology. I worked as a case manager/therapist for 12 years.
I am a pk (preacher’s kid). The pressure that society puts on us can be a bit much at time but we are face with some of the same issues.
I love music. Some music can be so soothing to me. I am able to lose myself in the beat. I talked about it in this post, We are all conquerors. I also created a 90s R & B Playlist Top 150. You can check it out here.
I love long walks on the beach.
One of my favorite movies is “Drop Dead Fred.” My sister and I used to watch that movie so much.
I am a sucker for romantic movies. I love romantic movies when the love connection is not obviously.
There are some horror films’ fans in my house, but I am scared of horror movies. If I attempt to watch one, I cannot be alone and I have my hands over my eyes throughout the movie.
Omg, I love pecan pie with a passion ha. Since becoming plant based, I found a new treat to replace my love for pecan pie. It is a vegan key lime cheesecake. Omg, it is de-lish.
I swear I was a ninja while growing up. I watched a lot of Kung foo movies in my childhood. When we were not outside making mud cakes and pies, my sister and I would be ninjas.
I love wearing wigs for my protective styles. I do not like to style my own hair. Actually, I am just not that good at it, but I have learned some ways to take care of my hair over the years. I wrote about it in this post, Hair regimen.
I have been plant-based/vegan for 4 years. I wrote a blog post on How To Start A Plant-Based Diet. You can check it out here.
