Black Owned Business Feature: Breukelen Rub

I am so excited for this week! I will be attending BlogHer tomorrow and Thursday in NY. I will be vlogging those two days and have a detailed post on my experience. I’ll also try to be on Insta Stories and Snapchat as well.

Today’s Black Owned Business feature is Breukelen Rub.

I discovered this brand last year at the Think Pink event I attended. I was immediately drawn to them because I love to cook and was interested in trying something new to season my food with. The owners, husband and wife Chef Jamaal Dunlap and Isalia Lebron were super welcoming and friendly. They told me about their start, all about the different seasonings, how to use them and they even had a food demo (and if you know me, I don’t turn down free food lol). I was sold and purchased the one pictured above.

Breukelen Rub was started in 2017 with the inspiration of creating flavors of Brooklyn neighborhoods. I just love the down to earth, family oriented and welcoming vibe of the owners and the story of why they started. I also love the seasoning I purchased, I basically use it on just about everything from vegetables to meats. You know the ingredients that make up each seasoning and it just makes your food taste so good!

You can also attend culinary classes if you visit thier Instagram page (breukelen_rub) for more information. If you would like the purchase one of their seasonings (I highly recommend it) you can visit RIGHT HERE!!

Please go support this Black Owned Business. Have a great start to your week and see you Thursday!!

Bean Boozled Challenge

Can you believe how fast the Summer has flown by? I can’t get over that it is August already!!! I need to hurry up and get to the beach soon lol!

Today on the blog is something I am probably late on doing but my son has been asking to do this challenge with me for a while. If you don’t know about the bean boozled challenge, it is where you have jelly beans that look alike and you taste them to see if the flavor is a good one like Coconut or bad one like Spoiled Milk. We got a small box this time around and we may do this again and you will see why lol!

This was a fun one to film and I hope you guys enjoy.




So that is it for this challenge. Have you guys tried this before? Leave a comment below. Have a great weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!

It is almost time!!

I am so excited for this move! I can’t believe August will be here next week! It seems like the summer is flying by so fast and I feel like I haven’t had much time to enjoy it. It has been so busy at work and just everything that been going on.


Anyway, I will be here full time starting Thursday August 2nd! The current schedule for new posts will be every Tuesday, Thursday and every other Friday. Tuesdays will be regular posts like reviews or personal posts and Thursdays and Fridays will be videos. My videos are also published on my YouTube channel which you can subscribe to RIGHT HERE!!

I am so excited and hope you tune in every week!

July Current Obsessions

It is getting so close to the move, I am so excited. I made the official announcement last week and just feel like this is the right move.

I decided to share my current obsessions with you. This is something different I am trying with my favorites. I decided to do these videos every other month and call it my current obsessions. Sometimes I don’t have favorites every month and it was hard trying to find things to talk about. Enjoy and subscribe to my channel!

Let me know what you were currently loving this month!
