Hey Queens and Kings its Hippiekinks hoping everyone is enjoying this Spring weather minus the rain showers LOL! I hope you guys have been keeping up with your self care as far as getting your affairs in order for this next phase in your life for you to live your dreams! If you haven’t read my other post please do before reading this one so you can have idea of where we are at with Spring Cleaning our lives. For this part I’m going to focus more on taking accountability on what you are not doing in your life which is holding you back from your success.
Taking accountability for some people is the most hardest thing to do! The action to admit that you are at fault for lack of success in certain parts of your life is not easy. It hurts to know that truly you play a role at holding yourself back from truly being happy! Your mind is a very powerful tool and if it is not in a great state its very hard to achieve success/happiness. How you view yourself in life is very important to your path to success! If you are very negative or positive yet you are very guarded not much is really going to happen for you success wise. For Example:
" I would be happy if my body was right!"
" I would be happy if I was in a relationship!"
" I would be happy if I had enough money to start my own business!"
Having these thoughts will stop you from your glow up hands down! There comes a time where you have to be real with yourself and come to terms that you may not have everything all together like you thought you did. Personally with me I had a well needed conversation with my boyfriend without taking anything personal. If your in a relationship having this type of communication with your partner is very important; its like your very own human reality check! Its also very important to have that relationship with yourself, being able to catch yourself when your mind is not on the right path. We have to learn to turn them negative thoughts into positive actions! For Example:
" I would like to start a diet regimen, let me research one that works for me!"
" I would like to settle down with someone, its time for me to put myself out there and date!"
" I want to start my own business, let research the steps I can take with my current budget!"
Positive thoughts are a start to a winning mindset that can take you on a journey where you need to be for you to achieve your goals! Look for the upside to every situation dealing with something you want in life! Its time to take those leaps in life and if you fail know that you can always try again with a different view every time. Bottom line excuses are not mentally friendly and laziness will not cure your unhappy feelings about your life!
In order to achieve anything in life you have to fix your mind and have an amazing relationship with yourself! Trust yourself knowing that you won't let yourself down or let things get in your way. Fight that lazy demon on your back and get up to slay your dreams one at a time! Whether your afraid of failure or have a fear of starting, just know its all in your mind! Be honest with yourself and take the steps you need to take to be a better you. Taking accountability from a personal perspective was very relieving to my soul and I felt like a new person! Currently a few things that would cause me to have anxiety about them now only drives me to push harder towards my goals for solutions! Its time to choose yourself and know that this is not an easy process, but trust me its the most amazing experience to have with yourself! This is the last of my Spring Cleaning post guys I really enjoyed documenting my experience on coming to terms on where I stood in my life! I hope they are very helpful to you guys and just know that you are not alone with your short comings in life. Everyone has them and if your told otherwise thats far from the truth! Its time to kick ass in life LOL! I'm manifesting letting go of failure and taking a leap of faith; overall living your best life! Until next time positive vibes and much live beautiful people.
Hey Queens and Kings hoping everyone is enjoying this beautiful spring weather where ever you live, but I'm hoping its a beautiful atmosphere! Honestly guys I have been truly working on my mental health which has been very depressing, but more so uplifting and clearing the negative thoughts that hold me back from my Glow up. Im learning that sometimes when we think we are communicating on a great frequency about our feelings we may not be doing in it in a way for others to understand us fully. Learning things about yourself and speaking on how you feel about things your not happy about are not the easiest things to do when you are not used to it! I've realized personally I'm used to shoving certain things in the back of my mind not realizing the damage it cause on my dreams I have set for myself.
For these few short weeks I had lost my creativity to write post and was more focused on other projects that I wanted to start to expand my business. Great! Right that's what I thought as i became overwhelmed with all these things I can do to push me further to my happy place when it comes to work! Now here's the problem I am very impatient when it comes to starting and executing a project and when it doesn't happen in the time frame I set my mind to I loose my shits! Not a great thing to do and if you are just like me Hunny your not alone. Having someone call you out on your shit is a start to making changes and I'm still a vigorous work in progress. My man called me out on my shit and let me know what I needed to know to take a second to realize what I have done so far! He reminded me of the joy I had writing you guys and staying connected to those I may be helping through my blog post!
Once again I left my baby (my Blog) to get my mind together and its ok to take a step back from your work when your mind isn't in the right place to do your best! I am not perfect nor do I have it all together, but on my blog you will get the real deal LOL and I will let you guys know when I am not at my best (nobody is perfect). The goal is to keep on going or pick up where you left off to continue with the race. I personally do not like failure which I didn't realize how much the thought of failure held me back from doing things that I'm passionate about. Its hard moving forward without thinking of all your short comings and the things that you could of done if the information was in you mind at that time! The past tends to own my mind which is something I'm not allowing to kill my joy anymore! Letting go of the things that didn't happen and looking forward to what you can take on tomorrow is a great way to look at things.
My depiction on myself is not so negative and accepting where I am occupational wise does not determine my future! With in one year my hole life changed so fast in front of my life with great heartache and lost that I will never be truly the same again! I vow to myself in one year the changes that will take place in my life are for prosperity in life and happiness within my relationships with the people I love! Im becoming more mindful of my feelings and really taken in that I'm a great person that tend to have days where the sun just doesn't shine really bright. I am ok with that! If your like me drop a comment below and share your story as well. Heyyy that’s what we are here for to all learn together and help one another. Hoping this post help someone kick start their dreams in any way possible! As always I’m manifesting on Spring Cleaning your life and focus on your glow up; overall living your best life! Until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people!
Hey Queens and Kings its Hippiekinks and it’s officially Spring!!!! I am super excited about the not to cold not hot weather !! I know I’m not the only one, but this is the type of weather that makes you want to make a change in you life! This blog post won’t be long; I just would like you guys to joining me in the process of spring cleaning your life. It is time for us to make few changes in our life, mentally, and if you feel you need a physical change then add that to the list, because they all can be done if you put your mind to it! It’s time to eliminate your doubters and love your love ones from a distance if they don’t support you! Spreading time with yourself is not a bad thing to do when your trying to figure out what you need in your life! If you have an significant other there is nothing wrong with taking some alone time if needed to get your mind together! If talking about these issues with someone you trust is better then do that!
Sometimes you just need a jump start on your goals with a better perspective and a clear mind on what you want to do!! I’m inspired by many signs that are presented to me everyday due to the fact that my mind isn’t so heavy on a constant basis! Don't get me wrong I have my days maybe a week I’m in my feelings, but I don't let it go for long and apologize to those I may have offended during my storm. That right there helps me with growth! I’m hoping my spring cleaning process give me a even better prospective mindset to pursue my goals I set for myself!
I will be making a few videos on my process and will be focusing more on the clean up for my glow up! I would love for you guys to join me and I’m sure any group out there with like minded people that you would love to start your clean up with. There is nothing like support and guidance when it is needed or you feel like you don’t know how to start. Heyyy that’s what we are here for to all learn together and help one another. Hoping this post help someone kick start their dreams in any way possible! As always I’m manifesting on Spring Cleaning your life and focus on your glow up; overall living your best life! Until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people!
Have you ever visited NYC and felt like you didn’t get a chance to see everything or never been but wondered what locations to visit as soon as you get a chance. I am so happy to let you guys know about the Whitney Museum which is located at 99 Gansevoort str, New York, NY. This Museum displays a lot of forms of culture taking you way back through the eyes of many well known artist! I really enjoyed the experience which was a day out with my boyfriend who planned everything and knew I was a lover of the artist Andy Warhol. It was a very eye opening experience and the tickets weren’t much ranging at $25 per person which isn’t bad for a Museum visit!
Warhol and Basquiat
The Whitney Musuem was founded in 1930 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney that features many different displays of art on 8 different floors, also having a few cafes you can catch a bit to eat at while your their. The Andy Warhol exhibit is on 3 floors in the museum and the other floors contain other amazing works of art from other artist as well! Warhol incorporated a lot of different methods in his works of art and also including a bit of technology as well. The work of art above was great photo I took of my boyfriend gazing at the art he loved the most at the museum and also enjoyed talking about it as well. I feel that it’s great to explore inspirational events with someone you love; giving open room for discussions to open your mind to a different view of things. Now I’m not an art expert nor am I highly knowledgeable of everything I saw, but it was a great experience to see all of that beauty through someone else’s view is a great experience. I really enjoyed his portraits on famous/important people he saw as a work of art and also his depiction on our everyday household items. Andy Warhol to me was an amazing artist and one I can truly say I identify with, because it is ok to embrace your weirdness which can turn out to be amazing joy for others!
Andy Warhol: Aretha Franklin
I choose this location to be my first Vlog vid for you guys, because I know a lot of you guys would really like the atmosphere of the place! It has a lot of cool exhibits and the rooftop view is to gag for great for your own mini photo session lol! Hope you guys enjoy the photos I took and the mini Vlog Vid I made to give you guys a more inside view of the museum! Also this Vid is the inspiration for *wait for it* HIPPIEKINKS YOUTUBE CHANNEL, lol yes guys Im super happy about the next level with my blog, but when God speaks I'm answering! You can view this video on my Youtube channel which the link is located below! I have so much to offer you guys; SO DROP A FEW QUESTIONS "WHAT DO YOU GUYS WANT TO KNOW" lol! There are so many amazing places located in different areas of Manhattan with a lot of culture and I am super excited to take you guys on the journey! The sky is the limitless and I'm honestly trying to touch as many stars as I possibly can! As always Im manifesting on self improvement and focus on our glow up; overall living our best life! As always until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people!
When your presented with a negative situation that last longer then a day or week its very hard to stay positive and keep faith that life is going to get better. When people say, "Don't worry this just a moment in your life and that God has big plans for you!" in your mind your like "Where, when, and can this happen like right now". I know things may seem like forever and you feel that it would never get better but only go further down hill then where you already are. The statement "once you hit rock bottom the only place to go is up" is a truly a great way to put it.
How do you currently view yourself?
I have learn over the course of time that when you hit rock bottom you are going through a learning phase in your life that will determine how strong you are and where you need to make changes in your life. Question yourself "How do I view myself right now?" and I'm sure you are wondering what I mean. When you view yourself in such a negative light that allows all the negative things around you to intercept in your space of growth. The negativity you are unconsciously allowing in your space can distort the perception you have of yourself. This is were your thrown off your path to success, because you become more consumed about whats going on around you that you loose focus of yourself.
That is the destruction of bad energy and negative people in your life. To make a change you have to do some pruning in your garden of life. Meaning some people are going to have to get cut and left where they stand with their negative ass. Accept the things that you can't change and learn to live with them and not deal with them. You have to change your whole view on your life to start changing your life. Now that doesn't mean get revenge or do things out of spite because you get to a level where you can do! NO not at all do not tarnish you're blessing to come at a person or people that have done you wrong. You just simple pray for them and if they mean a lot to your life you must learn to love them from a distance, because they are not where they need to be to be actively apart of your growth in life. Don't fail the test God gave you to see if you're really worth the blessing, because you put to much work in to it!
New view, New You!
Now once you did that early Spring Cleaning to your life now its time to really live the life you in vision for yourself. Just know that everyday you start new and be a different person then who you were yesterday. Pick a new hobby, trade, or even look into a career change whatever it is get up and do it for your happiness in life. Don't give up no matter how many bumps may present itself on your road to a new you. I've realize people nowadays hate to start from the beginning with anything they try to do in life and look for the shortcuts. You have to remember all the work and fun in the beginning makes a strong foundation in the end. Nothing that comes quick last forever, but continuous hard work could never be erased or go unseen! Just know there is always someone out there watching you and wishing the best in whatever you do. Most importantly that person should be you, find that in yourself and others will follow to cheer you on.
A few steps to get on the right foot!
Cleanse your social media of all the things that don't serve your growth.
Take a break every now and then from social media!!!!
Don't compare your life to others!
Be honest with yourself and take accountability of your actions!
Forgive yourself for any wrong doings that you may still be holding on to, because now you're not the same person you once was!
Control your anger when it tries to present itself in a situation where it is not needed!
Learn to walk away from people or situations that don't serve you.
Meditate when needed! (FYI Amazing for anxiety!)
Give people respect you would want back!
Tackle your fears in life, fear is just a mindset!
Most importantly BE YOU!
Hoping this post was very helpful to you guys, honestly I am sharing with you guys what I've been doing with my life to be all the way on track with this New View I have of myself. I must say it has its up and downs, but I can honestly say I am waaaaaaaaayyyy better and happier than what i was before with other things in my life outside of my family. Honestly you have to take risk in life and not live in the unknowing which isn't really living at all! Whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish take it head on and do very best to see success. As always I'm manifesting on self love and overcoming fears; overall living our best life! As always until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people! ✌
The amount of stress I endured while my mom was in the hospital my self care routines were truly none extent as far as a very unhealthy eating habit and not following a proper skin care regimen for my face. The stress eventually had a party on my face which means I experienced a lot of bad break outs that left a lot of scars on my face. I bet you would never think stress could cause acne to acted up at its best but it did to me.
Over the course of 2 months I have been trying new things (natural home remedies) to cure my problems without using harsh chemicals. Now I must say going this route it does take some time and dedication to see results, but it is very well worth it. I have a few ideas that I will share with you guys that has helped my skin get smoother, very little break outs, and most importantly carefully fading my blemishes. Another problem I had notice about my skin was small craters which are scars from pimples that were deep in my skin and I didn’t like it very well.
For some of my solutions I went to YouTube, but most of them were from a book that I was recommended on at home Holistic remedies (African holistic Health by Llaila O Afrika) . Now if you don’t have this book let me tell you once your done reading this post please go get you a copy and thank me later! This book provides you with a lot of simple methods to cure a few health problems to minimize your doctors visits. I love this book, because it provides a lot a remedies to prevent common illnesses that are in the black community. Best way to avoid some genetically inherited diseases would be to get in front of it before it occurs.
I will be keeping you guys posted on the progress of my new skin regimen. If you are not following me on Instagram don't be shy and go check me out!!! I will be posting my inspiration to get you guys through your day and also posting vids about my skin care regimen as well! I will also be listing below my day and night regimen as well as links for you guys to purchase the products if you can't get them locally!
Wet my face with cool water! (Cool/Cold water helps shrink pores)
Using my exfoliating sponge I use a piece of African Black Soap! (This natural soap is a deep cleansing soap that really gets in your pores to eliminate dirt which forms blackheads)
I hope these products are very useful for you guys and please let me know how they also work for you. Post a pic of your results on Instagram with the #hippiekinks and I would love to share your results as well on my social platforms! I'm manifesting on self love and overcoming my fears; overall living my best life! As always until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people! ✌
Hey Queens and Kings its Hippiekinks and we are now coming to the end of 2018. I know it’s been awhile since I posted but this year has been a complete life changer for me! I suffered great sadness but also met the love of my life!!!
Honestly this year has been really hard for me, I lost one of the most important person in my life which is my mother. For months my mom faught her illness and finally is in peace from all her pain. I don’t want base this post on this part of my life, because honestly I’m still learning how to live everyday with out face or her voice calling my name down the hallway! I understand it’s apart of life, but it is one part that I have been battling for almost two months since she’s been gone. My heart is broken and sometimes I’m filled with sadness. But I keep up the faith that I have a purpose in life and even tho my mom is not here physically; she’s with the lord an amazing angel she is. She’s at her most powerful form to protect me and see my life through!!! This is what I keep in mind to get up everyday and fight for happiness in my life (be the best version of me)!
Out of all this you wonder how did I manage to meet a great guy going through such a hard time in my life. I truly believe in faith and God delivers when he feels your ready to receive your blessings in life. This man has help from the beginning to the end and still standing by my side today! Wow I just want to Thank God but he is an awesome God! I’m not a deep religious person but I respect when divine intervention happens! I have learn so much about myself as far as my weaknesses and my strengths. I have shocked myself and have a new found look on who I am as a working black woman who is a Blogger. He has helped me realize my potential and he in courage me to start blogging again.
Even though we may go through things that may throw us off track of our dreams; the key is get back up and come back harder. For over 7 years of my life I took care of my mom which made it very difficult for me to be consistent with my blog and also work!!! But looking at my old post I made it happen when I could even though it wasn’t consistent I did it. Now I have a whole new life and whole new space! I moved more into the city which is different for me because I’m Westchester girl! The lost of my mom made me want to conquer my fears and the love of my life makes me want share with the world !!! Whatever drives you hold on to it and don’t let it go !!!
End the new year with knowing you learn so many lessons this year and just be open/ready for the new year. I’m very happy with certain things in my life, but this is the first year without my mom. It will be hard but I will rise to the occasion and make her very proud !! I'm manifesting on self love and overcoming my fears; overall living my best life! As always until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people! ✌

Hey Queens and Kings its Hippiekinks coming to you guys about a topic that I feel people should be aware of when starting their weight-loss journey. Its a new year which I know for some people especially women who feel that this year is the year you take control of your life and live it the way you truly want to live it. Yessss My Loves! Im all here for that type of work and if your comfortable with the way you are Im all down for that too!! The whole idea of this journey is for yourself and nobody else, and most importantly for your own happiness with yourself. Everyone has their own reason for their decisions on loosing weight whether its health reasons, self- esteem, or simply just wanting to make a change in your life for you.
When taking on this journey you learn a lot of things about yourself that are amazing and also you have the not so amazing moments that do occur. Never letting go of your Body Shaming way of thinking is one obstacle you may experience! Now that may sound weird to some people, but I suffered this problem for a very long time and in the very beginning I never noticed I had the problem. No matter how small I obviously appeared to others in my mind I was always about 10-20 pounds heavier which drove me crazy most of the time LOL! Now thinking like this will have you in your bag ladies and be all up in the gym going crazy. It took awhile for me to notice I had this problem bad and when I did I slowly found ways to snatch my mind back to reality. The reality that I was a strong beautiful natural black woman no matter my shape or size, because my journey wasn't done yet. With that being said I started to develop a few mental techniques to deal with these negative thoughts.
One always accept a compliment on your journey with an open heart and congratulate yourself for the work behind that compliment. Try to stay away from pointing out your flaws as a response to these compliments, because it always keep your mind in the negative by speaking on bad energy. Two always look in the mirror and pat yourself on the back for making it this far in your journey. Three always treat yourself to something you love after every goal you set for yourself that you've accomplished. And four most importantly learn to love yourself unconditional no matter your size at that point in time just Love you!
I love coming to you guys about things that are on mind and I'm hoping that this blog post is very helpful to you guys as always! Wishing everyone have a positive and amazing journey to your goal size and weight. Also I would love for you guys to comment below and share a few tips as well from your journey with everyone to further help one another. If you haven't subscribed Please Do so you can stay updated with my New Posts and changes on Hippiekinks! I'm manifesting on self love and overcoming my fears; overall living my best life! As always until next time positive vibes and much love beautiful people! ✌

Hey Kings and Queens I know it has been awhile since my last blog post, but I am back in full affect ready to share some amazing things and topics with you guys. For the past three months I have been making a few changes to my life to become more spiritual in toned with myself, but most importantly handle some issues that was really weighing me down. SIS WAS STRESSED LOL!!! Yes I was guys very stressed; So I had to take a few steps back to figure out how I'm going to go about things in a more healthier and happier way for the future Jayda.
I have realized over the course of a few years I have experienced two journeys in my life that I am very proud of myself for accomplishing and continue to stay committed too as we speak. So I decided to start my spiritual journey with myself in order to truly get to know myself and also be able to have a form of discipline with my emotions and feelings towards life changes. Ive notice a few things about myself in such a short period of time, just by simply writing down the things that I don't do for myself that I should be doing. Don't get me wrong " I was mad as hell at myself" for a couple of days, not understanding how I could neglect myself and be so attentive to others. In such a short time i realized that my dreams was not aligned with my spirit which to me made everything seem so hard to achieve. Makes sense Right! Your mind and spirit cant be on two different vibes and expect to be in sync with each other.
Even tho my spirit was being positive, my mind was on a negative wave link which wasn't the best feeling. I decided to take my time and deal with what i was really mad about and accepted what I couldn't change. With doing that I also started acknowledging how blessed I am and how many things I have already accomplished for myself. You have to balance out the negative truths about yourself with the positive actions and achievements you have accomplished for yourself . Don't dwell on the negative things you have done, be proud of the awareness you have now therefore you can change tomorrow.
Don't want to make it to long, but this was on my mind so why not share with you guys and also it's a great way to introduce a fresh new start on a new journey of mind LOL. I got a lot a new things in store for you guys, going to shake up Hippiekinks content/site and give you guys more of me as well LOL. ALSO don't be shy I want to get to know my readers, so drop a comment say "Hey Love Bug" or something LOL I want to get to know you guys as well. As always until next time ✌
