💞Shon’s Favorite Things💞

We are just days away from the biggest holiday shopping event 🎄of the year 🎀and I decided why not share my favorite things? 🎁

Thanksgiving, for some retailers will mark the start of Black Friday… but family time is sacred… so the party ain’t and on and poppin’ for me until Midnight, November 27, 2015. 😜

So let’s get started!

Better get some coconut oil!

MY ABSOLUTE 💞 FAVORITE 💞 thing is the least expensive and most effective for dropping those el-bee’s! 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in your coffee… 1st thing in the morning… kills sugar cravings and curbs appetite. I dare you to try it, starting today! Then on Thanksgiving Day, post your plate selfie on my twitter feed @ShonGables.

Trust me: It’s bulletproof!

Bet they’ll be leftovers this year! 😆 And while everyone else is making New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight… you’re already dropping. Secret here… you must do this everyday. Skip a day, appetite goes into 🐲 beast mode 🐲. 😨


Excelr8 Running Club


My favorite: Excelr8 Running Club!

I am an advocate of shopping small business. It has its advantages: keeps dollars circulating in your local community, provides job opportunities for local residents, customer service is generally better plus it encourages entrepreneurship – which is truly the key to generating wealth versus just paying off your car note.



You get all of that in this running club plus joining literally changed the way I viewed running. Make it fun! Get accountability partners! And train! But runs are free… training will cost you. Thankfully  the owner trains virtually.

Here’s the link:




I’m a foodie… and anything that makes something taste fattening with a healthy substitute gets all the 💓💓 love 💓💓. I swear it transforms boring zucchini into spaghetti pasta and no one can tell the difference!! So instead of a 700 calorie serving of wheat noodles… I get a whopping plate of seconds and still 75 percent less calories. It is quite frankly a miracle… I got mine at Williams-Sonoma for 39 bucks!  On sale at Amazon though.💲💰💸


Now my last pick… hits close to home. If you’ve been following my blog… you already know my #90Day #Hair Challenge is  💥 EPIC!! 💫

Saved the best for last!!!

It is growing my hair FAST 💨 Thicker 👍 and LONGER 💇. Don’t believe me… keep following this blog. The diehards are already on it (you can catch up later). 😜  I’ll be posting our journey!!

But if you want in…

SHONS BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL!- Starts at midnight, Friday the 27th of November! I am selling hair, skin and nails plus some other goodies at my wholesale price. But ya gotta be in it to get it. Plus I’m giving away a few surprises.

Hope to see you there!

Catch the vision

Ya’ll ready for church? Because I am about to spit some serious wisdom. It is a key principal that took an at-risk youth, who grew up on welfare


… to her dream of working as a journalist in the biggest market in this country: New York City.


That same girl, then made a series of bad mistakes – from aligning myself with the wrong people to people pleasing. It cost me everything… AND I MEAN EVERYTHING. But it is never too late to rebuild!  Mistakes can either grieve you for the rest of your life – or you can OWN IT and empower yourself to know what NOT TO DO AGAIN.

I chose empowerment… and reminded myself of how I achieved my dreams in the first place:  VISION.


Habakkuk 2:2-3 explains it best!

“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”.


For 7 whole years… I was in a rut. I rehearsed over and over in my head all the bad things that had happened. But what was I meditating on regarding my future? Nothing but fear… until I finally created my vision board. You know like the one below ⤵⤵⤵


Your vision board is your opportunity to BE BOLD. BE BRAVE. AND THINK BIG. Your job isn’t to figure out HOW IT’S GONNA HAPPEN… your job is to believe God is able.

You fill in the blanks!

Will God help you accomplish every goal?  Not always… but when He doesn’t, He usually sends you on a path to see why you don’t want it. Trust me everything that glitters ain’t gold.

So what are your natural gifts and talents?  What have you given up on… or never started due to lack of money, no connections, closed doors, fear, lack of ability, etc?


Go through magazines like my #FitFriends did! (we made a party out of it) If you don’t have magazines – go to google images and print every photo that exemplifies YOUR DREAM GOD GAVE YOU. No one has to believe it BUT YOU!!  Then  paste it on the chart 🔼🔼🔼 above and find a scripture that agree’s with every image… and declare God’s word over your vision  board everyday!

I even make my kids do it!


Then find yourself an accountability partner… like my 5 foot 2 mentor Jessica. 😇

Short in stature but GIGANTIC on goal digging!

Once a week, Jessica and I share ideas… then build 3 strategic ways to make the first steps happen.


Proverbs 16:9 “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps”.


She was the first one who boldly told me, “GET OVER YOURSELF AND MOVE ON”. So I did… and went back to the basics and created a new vision board. It was time to create a new path… since the ones I’ve been on – wasn’t exactly throwing out the red carpet. #LOL

One of those paths lead me to my daughter’s school. Goal:  help this teacher ↘↘ change her perception of self.

Miss Stephanie doesn’t like the lines on her eyes and face

Miss. Stephanie thought she needed botox. We proved she could be wrinkle free in less than 90 seconds without injections?  WOW! Fine lines gone! Eyes and forehead!

So is this my vision of hosting the TODAY show. No. But it might be my path to getting there. Showing products that actually work. If not… it might still fund my kids education. And that quite frankly is a vision worth having.

Oh yeah… and being wrinkle free 😜

Ya’ll better get some vision…. and some WOW too!
