Our Wedding Day…SURPRISE❤️💍


Our wedding day was magical, a surprise to many on social media and the happiest day of our lives. It was the most magical day for the both of us, our mothers and our families. They always say it’s “all about the bride” right. Well I thank everyone, including my amazing husband, mothers and sisters who have made me feel this way, on this day and everyday.

Marvin and I have never been more in love, happier, joyful and peaceful in our lives. We have rebuilt our lives with everything that we have ever lacked in the past and have made this brand new life, one to remember. We look forward to being husband and wife for infinity. We are each other’s forever.

Happy Wedding To Us!!!

Lots of Love,

Punky (Speller, my new and beautiful last name!!! Marvin’s mom, my wonderful mother-in-law said, I’m the only woman aside from her, deserving of this last name!!! I Love You Mom, SOOO VERY MUCH!!!)

Malibu Memories…


Today, we took a little pause just to stop and smell the roses. After a very trying week, my fiance surprised me with a beach date to Zuma Beach in Malibu, lunch and a treat 🏄🍔🍨.

I thought I’d share some photos from our day, in which we loved each other more, laughed a little longer and hugged a little tighter. Life is precious, don’t take it for granted🙏👏

Enjoy,

Punky💝💋

Eating Raw, Salad Dressing From Scratch🍴


I have been so incredibly busy, that I’m surprised I even have time to write this. But I wanted to share a healthy recipe from scratch and a lunch option, since I won’t be posting as much in these next coming weeks, as we are busy with work commitments.

I typically eat raw twice a day, as eventually we may end up going totally raw. I have been experimenting with different textures for the last 6 months, making raw desserts from scratch that are super quick…key word being quick 💃. Today, I made this simple and easy raw, vegan, salad dressing from scratch!!

1 cup cashews (I used Cashew Meal)
1 cup Pure Reverse Osmosis Water
1/2 cup Organic Seasonings
2 Tbsp. Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tsp. Himalayan Salt
2 Tbsp. Black Pepper
A pinch of Garlic Powder and Cayenne Pepper

Mixed it all together and blend!!👍 I made an all organic salad with Kale, Green Peppers, Roma Tomatoes, Avocado and Sundried Tomatoes. I put the dressing right on top and Voila!

Enjoy!

Length Check…Healthy Hair💛


I went to see my stylist today to see how my hair is growing and it was a shock. Ever since going natural, I cut off my ends for my healthy hair growing process. This was 2 months ago. My hair has already grown 3 inches. I attribute this to my essential oils, my healthy eating, my natural shampoo remedies and using no heat. My hair has also grown in thicker. All of this work, the hair treatments, air drying, eating well, has all paid off.

Today, we used no heat, instead we detangled and brushed my hair out. 💝

Enjoy!

Steamed Vanilla Drink☕️


For those of you who want a non-dairy drink, (you can add whipped cream if you’d like) but crave the Starbucks, Peets, Dunkin Donuts and Coffee Bean drinks, here is an alternative that I made today, after mine and Lucki’s nice day at the dog park🐶

4 oz Almond Milk
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract (ours is alcohol free)
Fresh Whipped Cream (if you want to make it!) we had some left over, so I added it.

Steam Almond Milk for 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the Vanilla Extract. Wait another 2 minutes and Voila…then add the whipped cream if you wish.

Enjoy! ☕️😋💝

My Perfumes Have Parabens…Found Non-Toxic Alternatives💕🎀


When I was exploring ingredients in perfumes, I literally had tears in my eyes, when I found out that my favorite perfumes, all by Tokyo Milk, had a ton of parabens in them. I was crying because I was putting the rollerballs on my neck, under my arms and all over the top half of my body. I thought of my lymph-nodes, being so close to my breast area. It was the worst experience, I’ve ever had in Sephora. My sister, Mama Vega of Mama Vega Foods, was with me. We were just both, shaking our heads in disbelief. She’s an organic nutritionist…so you can imagine how she was feeling too. The lotion has the same ingredients as perfumes and I could only find ingredients for the lotion, which I will post.

I was looking and smelling alternative brands and I found some for cheap at Whole Foods!!! 😜 So my Chanel and Tokyo Milk, will be MIA, while I transition to non-toxic perfume. I’ve used Pacifica in the past and LOVED IT! I will absolutely be purchasing this Rollerball! The Hawaiian Ruby Guava is my favorite. Here are some pictures of some other new brands that I have discovered at Whole Foods!

Enjoy,

Punky💘💖

10 Minute Wheat Free Meals🍣🕔


I’ve been getting so many emails about what I eat on a daily basis and what we cook when we have limited time. We do not eat beans often, as they aren’t the greatest in carbohydrates. But when we do, which is once in awhile, and we do a quick meal, these Organic ones from Trader Joes, is our choice.

We always get the Nitrate Free Hot Dogs from Trader Joes, as well. This meal costs $7 for both items. I just throw the beans in a pot and heat them up on medium heat. For the hot dogs, I slice ridges into them, add fresh onion, organic ketchup, organic mustard, crushed black pepper, and add organic spices to them. Cook again on medium heat and in 10 minutes, your meal is cooked and complete.

This is our take on the “traditional” hot dogs and beans” for a quick, fast, meal.🍱

Enjoy! 💛

Great New Organic and Natural Products…🍋💛✅


Hey Everyone, here are some oldies but goodies that I re-added to my beauty collection!

I was planning to add some more oils to my collection, to ingest and make hair and skin products with.

Spearmint and Rosemary are awesome for skin and hair! I used to use Rosemary all the time and now I can add it to my Homemade Flaxseed Gel! Spearmint, is great for making toothpaste, anxiety, relaxation, any skin flare ups and scalp. I use Rosemary in the same way! 👏

Added some Lemon Oil, Vitamin E Oil and Flax Oil. Flax Oil grows eyelashes and eyebrows. I used this tonight in a Green Juice and for my eye and makeup remover. Dr.Bronner’s Peppermint Soap is M’s favorite scent. He has used this scent for years, so I got this one, since we ran out of the citrus scent. 🚿

And you know me and my lip products. This Organic Mango Lip Butter was only $1.99 at Whole Foods. My lips are so moisturized and I already love this. This background is the new beauty flyer from Whole Foods, which I’m loving. They feature all of their Organic and Natural beauty products! 😛💛

Enjoy!
