It’s the first week of April and right now, I’m Currently….



Scandal. Chile. I admit, this Gladiator was snoozing this season. Just…bored…Even Liv’s kidnapping..blah. I was hoping Shonda was setting us up for something and last week: YAAAASSSSS to the return of Papa Pope! I’ve missed his long soliloquies and the mayhem that only he can inspire. Now I’m interested again and may actually start caring about these Cy and Mellie and Liv’s new sidepiece/Papa Pope’s man…..


Plate to Pixel. Since I’ve been posting more recipes lately on Everyday Eyecandy, I’ve been reading every last post that I can find on Pinterest about food photography and reading ebooks from blogs like Eat More Beets and Pinch of Yum.  I also ordered this book that I’ve been eyeballing for a while. Got to step up my Food Photography game and I am loving this book.


Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly  Listen. I do NOT like today’s version of hip hop. First off, I can’t understand half of what these fools talk about and second, when I figure it out, they are not saying anything that is worth my time. What happened to the storytelling? The deep thoughts? The FLOW? But KENDRICK LAMAR???? Yes Ma’am!  Go get you a piece.


Gluten Free stuff. Pookah is a picky eater. He is ridiculous even if you allow for that fact that he has a food allergy and is very leery of eating things that might make him sick.  It has become my mission in life to bake something other than cake and cupcakes that he will eat and enjoy. So I bake. A lot.  You’ll be seeing more recipes around here because of it.


Sleep deprived. I’ve got a ton of stuff to do this week before we go out of town to the in laws for the rest of the week.  That means cleaning, some writing, some photo taking….*cries* why do I always wait until the last minute?



Disney in November. It’s officially happening. I’m calling the travel agent to day to book the trip and put down a deposit. We are going for Thanksgiving which is also Pookah’s birthday. I plan to have mucho fun. And take plenty of photos. Last time  we only stayed one day and stayed off property. This time, we are staying ON property and staying for 4 days. It’s taken me a month to research where we were staying, the tickets, should we get a meal plan etc. You may see a post or two or three on my preparations for it. Prepare yourself,you have been warned. …


Instagram. It’s funny, I’ve been on this platform for a few years now. And I swear I learn something new about it all the time. I don’t have the most followers( you ARE following me RIGHT @lashawnwiltz?!?!).  But what I do have is an engaged audience who comment, laugh and cry with me. All through photos. I’ll be sharing a few things that I’ve learned over the past few months at BlogHer this summer. You’re coming right?

    I wish I was making gluten free stuff, I really want to switch to a gluten free diet and see if it helps my stomach issues. How exciting to be planning a Disney trip too, I’m so jealous! 🙂

    Digging the macro up top. Does it count that I bought a macro clip-on lens for my iPhone. I haven’t tested it out yet but I may when I go down to the pool tomorrow.

    I left Scandal after episode 2 or Season 3. It started getting a bit weird.

    I’m so sleep deprived too. I’m hoping it’s the baby bug but if not… well… yeah

    I won’t be at Blogher unless the moon and stars align just right -_-

    But I do LOVE all your photography tips so you best be sharing a few things with us folks that can’t make it to NY!

    Yea Scandal has been kinda weird this season. But it’s def been better than House of Cards and I was a die hard fan but this past season I only made it through 4 episodes and was like eff this…LOL!

    Enjoy your Disney trip and I can’t wait to read all about how you prepare for it!

    I like the format of this post. It pretty much tells us exactly what you are up to. I might do something similar.

    Disney sounds exciting!

    Hey girl hey! I haven’t watched any episodes of Scandal this season. I just couldn’t get into it. *Don’t hurt me Gladiators* I’ve been feeling sleep deprived too…is there a cloning machine that can help a sista out? I’m definitely following you on IG! Although, I feel like I suck at picture taking…lol!

    We tried to go to Disney this year but the price….we are actually going on 4 trips that equal one trip to Disney…I just could not do it. I need to play the lotto. Scandal has bored me so much I missed 2 episodes and still know whats going on and that never use to be the case. I need to get my instagram up but it just won’t budge I have tried a photo challenge, following others, following hashtags I gave up *sigh* I even gave away free target gift cards still no budge

    Scandal — say no more! I watched from the beginning to current in under 2 weeks. I’ve been eating, sleeping and breathing Scandal. lol

    I’m so ready for the return of Papa Pope too. I love it when ever Papa Pope and Mama Pope make an appearance on Scandal.

    The hubs and I were introduced to Kendrick Lamar through a performance he did with Imagine Dragons. Since then, we have been trying to listen to anything of his we can. We have heard nothing but rave reviews (including your’s) for To Pimp A Butterfly, but we just haven’t had a chance to check it out. Hopefully soon though!

    Yay for Disney! I’m a HUGE Disney lover and can’t wait to visit Disneyland next month and Disney World this August! We also go every year for Christmas-New Years. Since your going in November all the cute decorations will be up but it will be less of a crowd <3

    I think it’s nice that you have an engaged audience in Instagram. That sure beats having too many idle followers. Good luck on your planned Disney too.

    I know I am one of the few black women I know that does not watch Scandal! But Shonda Rimes is just so amazing. Pinch of Yum has really showed what you can do with blogging! So the first KL song I heard was “B dont kill my vibe” lol but I love his music and lyrics-so talented!

    I love this style of telling us what’s going on in your life. Pharrell Williams was on Jimmy Fallon this week and said Kendrick is working on something new, so that should be exciting for you!

    I am loving your food posts. I feel like Z may have some gluten intolerance. It’s been on my mind and I will be asking her doctor about it. Looking forward to your recipes. I haven’t baked in forever so I need to get my life.

    I haven’t watched Scandal in forever. It’s on the DVR. I’m saving it for when I need a moment away from the littles this summer.

    I am not a HipHop gal but I here this Kendrick guy is dope. I’ll give him a try.

    I am so behind on Scandal… I gotta catch up ASAP. And I heard the new Kendrick Lamar is everything. I need to learn more about Instagram and other platforms too, like how to search IG better.
