abiolatv Now on my ESSENCE advice column! Dear Abiola, My hubby of 13 years keeps sexting other women on Facebook. What should I do? | Have any advice for her? Find my #sacredandthecity advice for this #SacredBombshell at TinyURL.com/SextingHubby 14h
  •   iamsyfoxx Leave his arse right there on Facebook with them. 14h
  •   harlem_boss_lady @iamsyfoxx basically because it will lead to something further 14h
  •   mustrdseedmedia I was about to say 'leave him' but that's running away from the problem. If they have been together for 13 years, she needs to find out if he is doing more than sexting, why is he sexting? Are other issues involved because it's a form of cheating. How is their sex life? If it's not that great he is looking for excitement else where. 13h
  •   iamsyfoxx Their issues are way deeper than his online sexting. And there is ALWAYS more to the story. 10h

abiolatv Caveat Vegan! Let the vegan beware. I just had the most disgusting of experiences from the nicest of places. I hit Neelys Barbeque Parlour with my family for my brother's birthday party, a kick ass surprise planned by his awesome wife @uluvtam. They are the parents to my niece Ava who at 2 months is already gorgeous and brilliant. :-) The party was planned for months so being there less than 24 hours after the Neelys (beautiful family) announced their divorce was just coincidental. The people in the restaurant were kind, gracious, and attentive to my slightly (or not so slightly- lol) raucous #family. And we had #FUN.

Anyway, I had more than enough time to scope out the menu as I usually do to know what I can order. With a list of food sensitivities, and preferences a mile long, I kinda have to do this. Anyway, I ate beforehand anticipating that I wouldn't be able to eat anything at this southern #BBQ spot.

I did order Brussels Sprouts to take home. I asked the waiter twice if they were vegan and he said yes. Cut to now, I heat them up, excited to partake and they taste... Funny... Kinda gross to my tongue... And then I feel nauseous. I google and they are made with bacon. Although there was no obvious #bacon to the naked eye, I guess it was marinated in bacon or something because my body is/was not having it.

I don't blame the waiter, although he should know what is #vegan and what isn't on the menu. I should have seen that "made with #onions and bacon" is there on the menu -- at least it's on the online menu. I don't recall seeing it on the menu in the #restaurant and I was drinking only water so I dunno how I could have missed it. At any rate. Caveat vegan. #Vegans and #vegetarians beware. Do your homework and due diligence. Maybe from now on I'll just ask plainly, is this cooked with animals. And restaurants, please train your waitstaff to know what vegan and #vegetarian mean. Super gross experience. To me-- just me-- not judging what anyone else eats. I do have fish at least once every couple weeks or so. And why didn't I know what the #Brusselssprouts tasted like? Simple. I've never had #PORK before although I'm not sure I can still say that!

  •   akanva Sorry about that. I totally understand. Options are limited, most times. You have to break it down when ordering to keep from getting sick. I'm Pescatarian and most of the seafood dishes have chicken stock! REALLY??! 2d
  •   abiolatv @akanva Thanks, sis! I didn't even know that part of it-- that they cooked #seafood with chicken stock. Wow. 2d
  •   akanva Some restaurants cook certain seafood dishes that wait. So ask, ask, ask. Hope you are feeling OK 2d
  •   uluvtam Ohh no! Hopefully u didnt feel too sick 2d
  •   abaykamau WOW @ AbiolaTV !!! You should hear how I send wait staff and managers through an inquisition. I've found I often know the cooking habits better than the staff; guess that's because #vegetarian actually cook our foods. At any rate, eat some ginger and since until now you've not tasted pork, black seed oil just in case. 2d

abiolatv Thank you so much to everyone who joined us at the #SacredBombshell Goddess Healing Circle in #Harlem, Manhattan! Tia @violetsanctuaryspa Johnson, Author of "To Be Goddess," came from Philly to join me to create this experience. We convened at Sisters Uptown #Bookstore & Cultural Center to talk about #FEAR and create a blueprint for moving forward on your own journey. Our #sistercircle actually had 4 men show up who were integral to the group. We were diverse in terms of gender, age, nationality, profession, and more -- but all had so much in common. One woman came all the way from Connecticut, another from North Carolina, one from way out in New Jersey, and another woman courageously faced her agoraphobia and came to join us. It was a beautiful afternoon including #eft emotional freedom technique, an #angel #meditation and so much more. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You'll be able to join us (Tia and me) again soon for a Breakthrough Business Coaching group in Pennsylvania. I'm posting the photos and lessons of this event at SacredBombshell.com. You can also find my schedule there. Yayyyy! xoxo || #sacredandthecity #empowerment #selflove #selfworth #goddess 3d

abiolatv Raise your hand if you're feeling overwhelmed... Raise your hand if you feel burned out... Understood! Overwhelm and burn out are very real. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'm on the super awesome #BetterTVShow today with lovely hosts @JDRoberto and @KristinaBehr talking about how to have a #selflove weekend to recharge moving into the next season. This is good for your emotional, mental, and spiritual health whether you're about #thehustle or home with your babies.
Let's talk about #SelfCare! Putting other people on your life or even your goals before yourself leaves you burned out and depleted. Everything didn't make it to air, so I'll post the entire Weekend of You- with #recipes - at SacredBombshell.com. I'll also include links to watch the show. It airs on channels such as the Hallmark Channel, depending on where you live. || The airplane oxygen mask metaphor is real. If you don't love, heal, and care for you first, you can't do that for anyone else. || #sacredbombshell #sacredandthecity #tv #talkshow #advice #mindbodyspirit #psa || @bettertvshow

abiolatv #SacredBombshell Eats! I made Channa Italiano for lunch. Ok, I made up the name but it's pretty delicious. :-) #Channa is what we call #chickpeas in #Guyana. I sautéed with tofu, onions, garlic, fresh tomatoes from my parents' garden, #oregano, paprika, and olive oil. All of the italian style seasonings gave the tofu the taste of one of the #italian cheeses. So good and took about a half an hour. || #tofu #vegan #vegetarian #recipe #sacredandthecity 1w

abiolatv What is hope really? Hope is possibility. Hope is the feeling that every moment is pregnant with the possibility of miracles, mojo, and magic. Yes!! Is this a contradiction to faith, though, a knowingness that all really is well? I don't see it that way. Hope is I am wanting everything to work out; faith is I know it's already working out. Faith is everything, the evidence of things not yet seen. But we still need hope. Absolute belief sprinkled with hope on top for those all too human #sacredbombshell moments where absolute belief ain't exactly so absolute is the bees knees. || #sacredandthecity #hope #faith #nyc #sculpture #art 1w

abiolatv Happy Autumn, Gorgeous Ones! :-) The autumnal equinox is upon us. So goodbye summer, hello #Fall. Some of us (raising my hand) have a real issue with seasons changing. For some of us (raising my hand) this reflects the issues we have with letting go of what is for the miracles that might be, but THIS is the lesson of the seasons of the planet, and the seasons of our lives. Mother Nature is always shifting; we are never ever really stuck. We just think we are when we have our boots in the a seductive quicksands known as #fear, comfort, and familiarity. Yes, I am mourning my favorite season but I don't want to miss the gifts of a new season while doing so. Summer was fun but there's more fun to come. Let's walk boldly forward together to see what this brave new season has for us... Like fly fall boots, apples, warm sweaters, going inward, sweet potato pie, fresh starts, and things we can't even imagine. It's ok to grit our teeth a lil bit (grrrr) as long as we move forward. Even a well-timed hibernation is forward movement. It's all about intention. Whoo hoo! What's your intention this season? #sacredandthecity #ownyourbombshell #seasons 1w
  •   sinnamonlove Autumn is my favorite season for that very reason! 1w
  •   princessdi2082 Beautiful 1w
  •   abiolatv @princessdi2082 thanks, sis! 5d
  •   abiolatv @sinnamonlove yay, #autumn! :-) I'm working on it! #goddessinprogress 5d
  •   abiolatv @haitianphoenix Consistency is a powerful intention. Yes! 5d
  •   sinnamonlove We all have things we could use work on. My intention this season is to embrace the change in my life; to work on restoring balance in my life and make progress in my professional life. This year has been stressful, and it is time for change. I welcome it! ^_^ 5d
  •   abiolatv @sinnamonlove Powerful, sis. Restoring balance is definitely a current intention for me as well. I've been riding a wave, a positive wave, but still a wave, rather than standing firmly in my center. Now I'm getting back to my positive daily rituals to restore balance. Embracing change... Now that's where the magic happens... 5d
  •   sinnamonlove Indeed! Balance is where its at! 5d

abiolatv Last day of summer... Enjoy it, even from your desk. :-) Allergy heads up, y'all! It's a teeny bit brutal out there. I found this amazing pine cone-- trying to get into the #fall season and starting sneezing like crazy. I had to do a catch and release! xoxo #sacredandthecity 1w

abiolatv Heads up! It's apple picking season. :-) Despite our best summer fun efforts fall is here -- and I am definitely looking for an orchard. Meanwhile, here's something fun to do with all the #apples. It's a drink called the Bud Light Lime Apple-Ahhh-Rita, giving cider taste that works even for us non-beer lovers. I usually just drink water, but this is fun for a party break. || Featured in the video is Victoria Hudgins from @ASubtleRevelry; recipes from facebook.com/budlightlimeritas. || Now, looking for the #applepicking... #seasons #fall #spon #FiestaForever #GLAMFiestaForever 1w

abiolatv Hey Family, Tonight I'm on a new show on the #DiscoveryChannel's @DiscoveryID named #YoungHotCrooked. We're discussing a college student considered a "femme fatale" who allegedly involved her boyfriend in a plot to kill her ex. It airs at 10:30pm EST and throughout the weekend on Investigation Discovery. Take a look at let me know if you think she really wanted the boyfriend killed or was just a troubled young woman from an abusive family background... Do you think that love can drive you to rage or violence? Or is there no excuse for along control? Let's discuss... 2w
