Allergies & Sensitivities

While I was in Atlanta two weeks ago, I had an allergic reaction to something I ingested. I have had food and medication allergies and sensitivities for as long as I can remember. They are not to be taken lightly. I ended up in an ER! The staff took great care of me, and I'm thankful for my friends who were there to look after me. 

When I developed thyroid disease, hypothyroidism specifically, I started to pay even more attention to my sensitivities. I also live with asthma. It is especially important for asthmatics to be cognizant of the effects that pain killers, animals and environmental elements can have on them. 

Remember to read labels, listen to your body and love yourself.

Happy Thoughts!

New Orleans is a city that shares its energy with you, feeds you and leaves you wanting more. I always flip through my favorite travel guides by Lonely Planet before and during my travels. For this trip, I got an amazing list of places to go eat from my friend/neighbor, who is from NOLA, in addition to a few choice picks from lp. I love them! If you have the time, go get lost in this city, eat some fresh seafood and try a Grenade. ;-)

Sweet November

Hey hey hey! 

I've been traveling a lot this month, and I must say, seeing some of my best friends, one of which is one of the oldest best friends I have, has been great for my soul!<3

I vacationed in New Orleans, Atlanta and Reno. New Orleans is a great city, rich with history, culture, and a dynamic party scene. The people there are so warm and friendly. I could have extended my stay if I had the time! 

Atlanta is one one of my favorite places to go. I love the food and the southern hospitality, so cliche, but so relevant!

Reno! It was my first time flying to Reno, and I really enjoyed my visit, the mountains, snow, rain and overall scene. I'm convinced I need to an Airstream trailer for travels and extend my next trip. Hahaha! #renoenvy

I'll be sharing more pics!

Cheers and warm winter wishes,

The Zoo

Saturday I went to Niabi Zoo with my niece and her Ps. It was fun, a gorgeous day and the animals were on their bestest behavior! Heehee. 

Happy Tursday!

Happy Sunday, everyone. One of my sisters just commented on my faint hypothyroid brows. I'm simply feeling blessed.
