Live Civil by Karen Civil Event

This past Sunday February 22nd, 2015 I attended this inspirational event.

Special guests were Miss Diddy of The Brand Group – LA

& Rapper YG’s manager Steve Carless.

Alongside Karen Civil, these three spoke about their past experiences, how they made positives out of negatives and the sacrifices needed for true success. Miss Civil, going the most in debt to shed light on all the things this young black woman has accomplished, how she got there and that her journey is still in progress.

Rapper Meek Mill and songstress SZA (as photographed) stopped by the event to show support!

I had the pleasure of having a front row seat to this event and look forward to see more from and hopefully one day work with Karen Civil.

Fitness | FAQs – Pre & Post-Workout Nutrition

Hey Fran Hey & FollowTheLita give a breakdown for those who are looking to start the New Year with fitness and healthy eating.

Through my own experiences, I get tons of energy with Essential Amino Energy as my pre-workout (I can literally last up to 2-3 hours in the gym). Once I get home from my workout, within 30 minutes I make my post-workout shake with Whey Protein, almond milk and frozen berries (I add chia seeds and fiber powder sometimes as well).

A month ago I added Trim Tuf to my regimen, and noticed 3-5lbs lost within  the first two weeks. See more about the tea product at

Healthy and natural ways to detox and lose weight:

1-2 tablespoons of Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with a glass of room to warm temperature water first thing in the morning.

Drink 2-3 cups a day of Green Tea which boosts your metabolism.

Greek yogurt which has protein for building muscle & preparing tissue, probiotics, B12 for energy and Iodine which is important for proper thyroid function and Calcium which has been linked to regulation of the body’s cortisol output to name a few benefits.
