Overdue Healthy Immune System
I have been an absolute health freak since I was really young. I remember asking my dad to buy me a smoothie maker when I was 16 years old, because I wanted to start making my own smoothies. I had a list of recipes that I wanted to try and just needed the machinery. I actually still have the smoothie maker to this day, and I love it. I have been determined to put the right things in my body for the majority of my life, and as a result of that early desire, when I was just 4 years old, I told my mum that I didn't want to eat meat anymore. That's how serious I was.
I used to share my knowledge and passion for healthy eating with my friends at school, and my family BUT that wasn't enough for me. I set up a party planning business when I was 19 and I vowed to always provide healthy food for the children attending the parties. That still wasn't enough, so in 2015 when I started the Sophisticated K YouTube channel (now K London YouTube Channel) I focused on sharing the smoothie recipes I had created over the years with the world. In every video, I shared the nutritional value of all of the ingredients and educated my viewers on the health benefits. I have been ranting and raving about the the foods we consume and the effect we have on our own bodies for years. My reason and motivation was my Eczema, but I think, even if I didn't suffer with it, I would still have been passionate about my health from a young age.
Now, I tell you all of this because everything you do impacts your Immune System, and you may be wondering...
What Is Your Immune System?
Hold up. wait a minute! I'm about to tell you now. Your Immune System is your bodies defense mechanism that fights against illness and infections. It is so intelligent, it can recognise foreign particles, cells and anything unfamiliar within your body. It destroys germs and viruses and things that don't belong in your body i.e. Fungi and Parasites. Your Immune System makes Antibodies to fight and get rid of the Antigens that don't belong in your body; basically they are not welcome! Your body needs infection-fighting proteins and healthy white blood cells in order to be able to carry out the fight successfully. Just like a muscle, your Immune System gets stronger the more you use it, so from the minute you are born, it's important to build your Immune System so it can have a great reponse to the germs and bacteria you come into contact with. If your Immune System is weak, it will take you longer to recover from illnesses such as infections, colds and flus. Also, when your Immune System is compromised, you are more likely to get sick, so one of your main priorities should be to keep it healthy. You can also prevent yourself from contracting an infection by avoiding contact with someone who is sick and has an infection, consuming contaminated food and water, and getting bitten by animals or insects.
The next thing you may be wondering is...
How Do You Build your Immune System And Keep It Healthy?
Hold up. wait a minute! I'm about to tell you now. There are MANNNNNY things that you can do, but there are also things that you shouldn't do, should stop doing immediately or cut out of your lifestyle as soon as possible. Check out the list below.
*You can stop drinking soda/ fizzy drinks, drinks high in sugar and too much caffiene (it has a diuretic effect and causes dehydration.)
*You can stop eating foods high in sugar and processed/ quick/ junk food.
*You can stop smoking cigarettes and taking drugs.
*You can stop drinking or drink less alcoholic drinks (in moderation/ as a treat is fine).
*You can start to exercise regularly.
*You can get good quality sleep, approximately 8 hours of sleep.
*You can avoid contracting an infection by washing your hands, being hygienic and avoiding unsanitary environments and habits.
*You can maintain a healthy weight. Your BMI is very important.
*You can have a healthy balanced diet that consists of an array of fruits and vegetables daily.
*You can increase the amount of foods you eat with Antioxidants, like berries. Also increase foods high in Folate like lentils and cantaloupe melon, Folate assists with the development of new white blood cells.
*You can introduce vitamins, minerals and supplements into your daily regime to ensure that you have enough nutrients. You can also take Probiotics, a good bacteria that assists with gut and immune health. The more good bacteria in your gut, the easier it will be for your immune system to differetiate the good from the bad, and fight the bad.
Then you might be asking...
What Fruits And Vegetables Should I Be Eating?
Hold up. wait a minute! I'm about to tell you now. And before I share the list, let me just tell you that you might already eat some of these, but I have to remind you that these need to be consumed regularly/ daily. Like I shared above, a great way to get multiple Immune System building fruits in one go is to create smoothies, and there are loads that you can try. The K London YouTube channel has a Food & Drink With K London playlist that has over 40 videos about food and drinks. Be sure to check that out.
*Citrus fruits that are high in Vitamin C such as orange, lemon, grapefruit, kiwi, lime, papaya and much more.
*Sweet peppers - red, yellow and green.
and the list goes on.
What About COVID-19/ Coronavirus?
In regards to the Coronavirus, the best time to start building your Immune System is NOW. I've been telling my YouTube channel viewers about all of the things I do to stay healthy for years, and more recently, in January 2020, I shared what my regime is and the vitamins, minerals and Probiotic tablets that I take. I try to encourage people to live a good life in as many ways that I can. I have a health and wellbeing ounce in my book, Ounce Of Faith And Inspiration. I incorporated fruits in the designs of my Fruits Of The Spirit t-shirt collection and honestly, I do as much as I can but ultimately it is up to you. Your health is in your hands, and I wish it didn't take the Coronavirus outbreak and the pandemic were currently battling to get people in gear. I wish it didn't take this crisis for people to realise that they needed to heed this advice long ago. Life is precious, your body is made to handle these tasks, but you have to do right by it and not when it's too late.
Check out the health message I posted on the K London YouTube channel and I hope you stay healthy, clean and positive. I also hope you stay at home because your life and that of your family depends on it.
Share this post with your loved ones, the more knowledge we have the better we will be. Oh and #StayHomeSaveLives

Spring Reading - 5 Book Recommendations
Shoutout to @Illustrations315 for this piece of art. I feel like it's me.
So, Spring is here but unfortunately, it hasn't quite sprung yet. It's freezing cold in the morning and we had hail stones the other day. But like I posted on the @KLondonTV Instagram page on March 25th “Hottest day of the year so far and we’re all at home. Let’s be thankful. We’re still alive.” That positive attitude is A MUST right now.
I really meant that and every word in the caption too. We have to be thankful that were still alive and well. #GratefulforLife But since I’m a Londoner, and Spring and Summer are a big deal to us here in the UK; it was strange to know and see that temperatures had started to peak and the streets were empty. Empty I tell you! No people, no cars, no laughter and no smiles. People weren’t out wearing next to nothing outfits and men, oh the men weren't out bare chested, with their t-shirts hung over their shoulders. Don’t tell me you haven’t seen men do that. Don’t worry, I’m not lusting, I’m a taken lady with eyes for only one man.
People in the UK are eager for a bit of sun, and I’m one of those eager people (You know I’m bicoastal and love me some Sunshine State of Florida sun). We wait all Autumn and Winter LOOOOOOOOONG for the sun to come from behind the clouds, and when it actually starts making an appearance, everyone is quarantined. Everyone is practicing social distancing, 2 metres plus more apart and working from home. It’s really strange, but here’s what I suggest you do.
We can’t run outside and enjoy the sunshine together. We can't have a family picnic and spend days at the park, but what we can do is enjoy the sunshine with a good book, two or three. If you don't have stacks of at home work to do, you must have an awful lot of time on your hands these days; the Coronavirus pandemic has made way for that. Sooooo, the best thing to do is stay productive. The best thing to do is to keep our brains active, to educate ourselves, to build on our knowledge because knowledge is power and to stay positive! Oh and that isnt an understatement, people I know have been home for only 3 weeks and they're saying they're going "Stir Crazy" Reading has the power to assist you with all of that and I should know; I’m a 5x Published Author and I’m an avid reader. It’s the 2nd day of April and I have almost finished my 3rd book of the year. My goal is to read 12 books this year. I think I’m on track.
So, since you've been stuck in the house, I think it's time that you soak up a healthy amount of sun rays, and get much needed Vitamin D, which is essential for optimum health. I'd also say get a comfortable chair, place it in your garden, on your porch, balcony or rooftop and cosy up with your first book. Make sure you’re wearing Sparks Sunglasses to protect your eyes and sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s Ultraviolet rays. 10 – 30 minutes in the sun is sufficient, and if you’re reading any of the page turners I’m about to recommend, you can get through a book in no time.
1. Ounce Of Faith And Inspiration - Kayisha Thomas
Since this is my book, I figured I wouldn't review it myself, I let you read a review published on Amazon.co.uk by one of my readers. so here goes "I found this book to be very uplifting and refreshing to read. The layout was very different to books that I have read in the past and that made it stand out. I like the way each section is headed, alternating between Faith and Inspiration. The photographs are excellent and really add to the book. They are nicely spread out throughout the book as well, providing little highlights as you read. Providing space to reflect and write notes is a really good idea and the homework task is a really positive challenge for the reader. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend others to read it."
2. The Power Of I Am - Joel Osteen
The Power of I am is very uplifting. Knowing and understanding the power of decreeing, declaring, saying and believing all of the great things that you are, is life changing. Joel gave great examples of things that I put into practice and I understand even more that life and death are in the power of your tongue. Speak what you want to happen in your life. Say I am wonderful, I am successful, I am rich; and that you will be.
3. Jump (Take The Leap Of Faith) - Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey is like my virtual God father and I think Jump is an exceptional book of honesty and realness. Steve is very open about his life experiences and how each one strengthened him and propelled him towards greater. He has shown that failure isn't the end and that the future holds great things if you have faith and you not only step but you JUMP. He's a brilliant example, very inspiring and I mean that in terms of life, family, relationships, education and your career. It's definitely worth reading.
4. Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon
I've lived with allergies all my life as a result of having Eczema and reading this book/ story (along with my young nephew who also has allergies) was interesting and relatable. It's definitely a page turner and suitable for any age. I was 29 reading it and my nephew was 12. I have to watch the movie at some point.
5. Angel Armies - Tim Sheets
This book is amazing! It lit a fire in my life, increased my faith and showed me how to activate the Angels that have already been sent on an assignment for my life. It will strengthen your faith without a doubt, open your eyes and give you a new level of wisdom. God's Angel Army is bigger and stronger than the opposing side, so don't feed into it with negativity. Activate your angels and be blessed.
These are all books that I have read, loved and recommended to others, so why not share them with you. If these are already on your book shelf, now is the time to start reading. But, if you haven’t got them yet, you can either place an order on Amazon or get the Kindle copy immediately. You're stuck in the house, so there's no going to the nearest book store or library. I'd love you to let me know if you choose to read any of these books, but also leave a comment with books you suggest that I add to my list. I use the Goodreads and my list of "To Read" books grows every day.
Stay healthy, stay well, stay educated, stay at home and spread love!

This Is Why I Love Fashion<3
Layls shades from https;//Sparkssunglasses.co.uk
The fashion industry has been playing a crucial role in lives all over the world, during the global pandemic that is the Coronavirus outbreak.
Designers and fashion labels are paying it forward by donating large sums of not only money, but also space, medical supplies, masks and gowns. Everyone is coming together, whilst also staying far apart #SocialDistancing and as we should be. Although distance and time zones separate continents, countries, states and towns, we are all humans and we are all connected. Because of that, we have to do what we can to stop the spread of the virus, to support healthcare professionals and to support those less fortunate that ourselves. And let me be clear, numbers are just numbers, the amount of people we help doesn't matter in comparison to the next person, what matters is tht we are doing our part in the midst of this crisis.
*Prada for example, started the production of 80,000 medical gowns and 110,000 masks in order for them to be distributed to healthcare professionals.
*Rihanna’s Clara Lionell Foundation has donated $5million to help vulnerable communities and support the efforts of food banks, provide protective gear and much more for those in need.
*Kima’s Luv Boutique got creative and made me a fashionable, custom made, fully functioning face mask in a matter of hours, whilst working from home. And let me add that it was with little to no notice. And she's been making more today.
The photos above and below say it all. I had to sport my new face mask, along with my Sparks Sunglasses and my work uniform. I was just leaving home when I thought "I'm on my way to work, but let me capture this outfit of the day." I aso had to write an ode/ a poem. The Writer in me bubbled up, and that meant I had to write this poem to share how effortless and natural the experience of getting a custom designed, made to measure mask was. Enjoy!
It started with a lady,
who came up in my face.
Disregarding social distancing
what an absolute disgrace.
I hadn’t worn a mask till now,
but oh how I think it’s time.
I pulled out my phone and jeez wow
I sent a quick text no mime.
Can you make a face mask for me,
these people think it’s a joke
Life and good health don’t come for free,
needle and thread to material, poke, poke, poke!
Spring is on its way again, the rabbits are out,
to the sewing machine she went, let's make it nice and bright
Would it be finished in time? About that I had no doubt,
it’s just for you so try it on, the fit has to be just right.
Put lining inside so you breath in clean air,
off to work tomorrow, key worker have no fear.
It’s all done now so on it goes, like that from ear to ear
God has blessed you so be a good steward, your talent you must share.
I hope you like my poem, and my outfit of the day featuring my custom designed face mask. I’m sure Kima’s Luv would be happy to provide you with a made to measure mask, so feel free to hit her up on Instagram of Facebook @KimasLuv to place your order. And before I go, can I just reassure you that we will beat this crisis and come out with the victory. We're in this together! Stay clean, stay healthy, be love and have faith.

Happy Birthday To Me
On February 26th 1990, I was born in London UK. Since that very day, I have been loved, nurtured, educated, celebrated and so I've grown into the woman I am today.
Every year I look forward to my birthday like a big kid. And every year I make an effort to do something amazing, to celebrate in a unique way, to show my gratitude, to show respect to my parents for how they raised me (to make my mum and dad proud of me), to leave a legacy for my future children and to be a better person than I was the year before.
Every year I do something special, and for the past 5 years I have had the privilege of being able to film my celebrations for the formerly Sophisticated K, now K London YouTube channel. For the past couple of years I have also done a birthday photoshot, and this year, my traditional mini birthday photoshoot featured Sparks Sunglasses. If you don't already know, Sparks Sunglasses is the new entity under the Kayisha Online umbrella. Being able to include my sunglasses collection in my annual birthday photo shoot meant a lot to me.
Whilst doing the photoshoot, I played music (You know me, I love music). I sang and danced as the camera flashed and I thanked God for my photography skills and my ability to do this for myself year after year. I am PCBphotography after all. Like I said above, it's a tradition, so for as long as I can, I will do it and I'll look back at the years I have been able to capture. I started in 2016, the first photo went up on the then @Sophisticatedkk instagram account on February 22nd 2016 and the caption said
"It's Monday! The week has begun! My Birthday Week Has Begun!" So that means the countdown is officially on. I'm posting a new mini photoshoot image everyday this week, so celebrate with me. I Love My Birthday!!"
Those photos featured peak hats designed by my little sister, from her Angel Ice Clothing line and I felt blessed to wear them.
So, like I said above. This year I wore shades from my Sparks Sunglasses Collection, and I just want to share some of the photos with you. I took over 100 photos and changed into 7 outfits.
Sunset shades from Sparks Sunglasses
Blaze shades from Sparks Sunglasses
Layla shades from Sparks Sunglasses
Akila shades from Sparks Sunglasses
As you will see from the photos above, I got creative with the outfits. I love fashion, clothes have been a massive part of my life since I was young (because of the way my mum dressed me), sunglasses have been a massive part of my life since I was in high school, and that's why the Sophisticated K Tshirt Collection and the Sparks Sunglasses Collection means so much to me. I made an effort to match the shades to the outfits I created and boi I think I did a good job. Let me know which outfit you like in the comments.
My official birthday outfit was my favourite of them all (first photo with baby pink, white and sequin jumper). When I got home from work, I changed out of the blue and white jumper that I paired with black jeans and a black blazer instead of the blue jeans and I wore the pink Lola shades, although they are not in the photo above. BUT as you can see... I turned 30 years old and as I write this a week and a half later, I still can't believe that I'm 30. No one believes I'm 30. People still think I'm a teenager and some think I'm 20 or 22. That's fine by me. I live good and I look young.
30 years of life on God's green earth and I'm proud of all that I have accomplished, all that God has called me to do and allowed me to achieve. A 5x Published Author, a female Photographer, 5 year long YouTuber, Fashion Designer, Sunglasses Collection Owner, Public Speaker and Motivational Leader. I've worked hard for the Kayisha Online empire and I'm looking forward to what comes next. The future is bright so I'm going to keep my Sparks Sunglasses on!
I don't want this to be all about me, so I want to encourage to live your best blessed life, find out what your purpose is (read my book, Measures Of Purpose In Life), work to inspire people, work to make the world a better place and year after year when you celebrate your birthday you can do it in style and be proud of what you have in done life, as you look back. God has a purpose for your life, He has a plan for your life, so be blessed and be inspired (That's the Kayisha Online slogan).

In Honor Of Black History Month
It's Black History Month in the USA and as an Author of Colour who loves celebrating Black History Month, I thought I would invite you and the children in your life to get creative for the month of culture, history, blackness and reflection.

Sparks Sunglasses Is The New Bundle Of Joy
The NEW entity coming under the Kayisha Online Empire/ umbrella is the Sparks Sunglasses collection. The grand launch took place on 19th May 2019 and it happily joined the KO Family.
Following the 10 year challenge, and the decade challenge that I joined on social media, I came to the realisation that Sparks Sunglasses has been in the making for 10 years. I literally came up with the idea 10 years ago whilst in Florida,USA, so I wrote a blog about it on the Sparks Instablog. https://www.sparkssunglasses.co.uk/apps/blog/show/47643832-the-story-of-sparks-sunglasses-10yearchallenge
I want you to read the blog post, but at the same time I just want to share that my love for sunglasses is a big part of me. Throughout my teenage years, and whilst in high school, I was known for wearing sunglasses, and especially for wearing sunglasses on my head. To this day, I wear sunglasses religiously, I have a personal collection, some are up there in age and I always make sure they match and complement my outfit. I am a Sunglasses Loving Fashionista after all.
I speak a lot about purpose in my book, Measures Of Purpose In Life (durrr Kayisha, it's about finding your purpose). My realisation when deciding to take part in this years 10 year challenge was that sunglasses are a part of my purpose and I'm glad I found the treasure within.
I have hand built Sparks Sunglasses from the ground up. I have put my heart and soul into every aspect of it, and in just 7 months, it has grown so much. The sunglasses have travelled the world, they have protected eyes, they have put a smile on faces; including mine and the journey continues into the year 2020. The collection does not exclude or discriminate against the male or female, young, stylish or older and sophisticated sunglasses lover. Each pair is so trendy - stylish - fashionable it's hard to choose your favourite one. Anyway, the need for quality eyewear is real (you can find blogs dedicated to eye health and eye care), because it's not just about fashion. More people are joining the Sparks Family and I'm gladly inviting people to join the team so we can continue to grow.
Head over to http://www.sparkssunglasses.co.uk to check out the collection. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook @SparksSunglasses oh and you can subscribe to our YouTube channel Sparks Sunglasses for videos.
