    Update: Quaterly Goals 2/4

    I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to write down your goals. Writing down your goals gives you enough motivation to work on them and to push yourself even at times when it seems impossible. It serves as motivation and I have to say the power of the pen is mighty! Here is a quick review of my April – June goals. Flat stomach: I’m taking it easy with this goal, doing 10 sit-ups daily and I waist train 3 times a week and I skip. I am trying. A tattoo: Is this even a goal? I don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote this down. My…

    Skin And Hair Care: Aloe Vera Gel

    My favorite all time plant, the first I’ve ever planted and its growing amazingly so. I love the aloe vera plant because it has so many benefits, it is good for the skin, face, hair and for health purposes. A few years ago, 2017 I decided to plant my own aloe plant in our garden at home. Aloe has since been a part of my skin care regime. Raw as it is, no added products, just the gel and water and my skin has been looking bright and smooth ever since! A friend of mine who has really amazing skin has recommended it to me a few years back and…

    Personal branding

    Happy new month we are half way through the year, I hope you are being kind to yourself 🌻 I recently came across a quote ”You are a brand, promote yourself.” I really love this quote and its true meaning. All the work that you put in now, will be recognized by the right people, at the right time. There’s no act that goes unnoticed. Personal branding is branding yourself, not a company. Sure you work for a company, but you are your own business and need to brand yourself. Associate your brand with your personality. Your brand is your everyday image. The way you carry yourself, the way you…

    Recently I have become skincare OBSESSED!!! To the point of trying new products that work to make my skin naturally glowing and blemish free. My skin used to breakout a lot and I had to change my routine every 2-3 months. For all skin routine, cleansing is the most essential step for me.

However, what we do to make sure we really cleanse our face is important. The facial brush is a must have in your skin routine! This facial brush deep cleanses…

    Rice water challenge

    I’m sure many of you have heard about using rice water to grow your hair. The real question is how effective is it? I have been using rice water for about 4 months now every week as a conditioner (hair mask) and I am happy with the results. After every wash my hair feels so soft. The only downside is how awful the rice water smells when it’s fermented, some people add essential oils and even lemon or orange peels to make it smell better, but the end results are worth it all. In this blog post we are going to discuss the benefits of rice water, how it is…
