Cherry Strawberry Smoothie


Hey scholars!

The weather in Memphis has been so beautiful during the winter and into spring. The nights have been so nice, cool, and a bit breezy. I was inspired by this weather to make a smoothie that I could enjoy sipping on while listening to music to vibe with my mood. It reminds me of a sugary, sweet slushy from childhood, only healthier and tastier! Here is what I came up with:

Ice (about a cup)
1 cup coconut water or plain water
2 cups frozen cherries
1 cup frozen strawberries 


Blend and enjoy!!!

Albums on Current Heavy Rotation

Hey scholars!

Like millions of other people, I love listening to music. Most nights, I listen to music rather than watch television. Take today for instance, I washed my hair, showered, ran some errands, and chillaxed in bed, all while grooving to some mellow music. Instead of using music to put me in any particular mood or headspace, I choose music to fit my vibe. I am comfortable with how I am feeling today, I want my music to reflect that. 

Here is a list of albums that have been on repeat for the past couple of weeks. 

Raye Welcome to the Winter



Kehlani Sweet Sexy Savage



Solange A Seat at the Table



Cree Summer Street Faërie
