DIY: SHEA BUTTER FOR SKIN & HAIR

In the Winter time it is essential to make sure to boost up our skin care routine. Winter cracked or dry skin is not the best especially with Spring slowly creeping up on us. One of my favourite Do-It-Yourself (DIY) tricks is my Shea Butter mixture that I use on my skin and hair. The ingredients used for this batch is as follows;

  • 7tbs Shea butter
  • 3tbs Coconut Oil
  • 3tbs Almond Oil
  • 2tbs Vitamin E Oil
  • 2tbs Tamanu Oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 2x Bowls
  • Hand Mixer
  • Container for mixture

WINTER WASH & GO ft. MIXED CHICKS & SHEADO

NEW VIDEO.

My updated Wash & Go that I have been using this winter. Even though it is much colder I still like to do a Wash & Go routine, I have been also reaching for the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner as my preferred styler and sealing in the moisture with only some Liquid Gold HairButter from Sheado. My hair has been reacting very well to this combination. I think my recent hair cut has a lot to do with my curls and products doing well in my hair. My hair was shaped at the SheaDo salon in The Hague. I loved the end result because my hair was in dire need of a trim.

MY 2nd TIME (FULL BRAZILIAN WAX)

This might be TMI (Too Much Information) for some but hey we are all adults here right?… & by the way this is a lifestyle blog! 🙂

Now let’s start the conversation about my 1st and 2nd time having the full Brazilian wax done. I experienced my first time back in July and my second time just this week! I feel super proud of myself because I talked about having a full Brazilian wax done for so long. But like most I am so embarrassed/ashamed/terrified even when just thinking that I have to lay down on a bed and someone if literally right up into well onto and touching my penny (lol, that was the name I called ‘it’ my vajayjay/vagina since young) with a bright light and probably criticising how mines look.

Even now while writing this I feel like ‘Girl you survived’. And I am getting over it because the fact of the matter is that it is their job and they have probably done this 500 times before you and they are just doing their job.

Let’s talk about the pain, comparing the two times I believe that it did get better. The first time of course it was a bit painful however, it is not a pain that lasts all day, where your penny 🙂 just feels like it is burning or just an unnatural. When the wax is applied they allow it to dry and then gently pull. After the wax is completely pulled of they apply pressure to the spot and then instantly or almost instantly it is relieved. For me this was done for the whole thing & for my second time I dared to get the back door also done! (lol are you also laughing while reading this?) The back door was so much easier and faster, she used the general wax and then applied the one that is used for the smaller hair.

One funny part for me was the way in which you lay down for the front and the back. For the front you are on your back and your under feet are touching, so that she can get up in there. For the back you have to lay on your belly and hold your butt cheeks so that they don’t stick together! (lol, just imagine that)

I would say that a full waxing session takes about 30-45 minutes and it goes by so fast. It is not awkward while laying there, well at least not for me. I make sure not to look at what she is doing and just keep my head up, hands together and talk. Talking about yourself and sharing stories in general like any other salon experience. & the finally the final result is amazing! Everything is super soft for days and you are instantly beach ready.

The salon I visited is located in The Hague and so far I am super happy with their service. It is super clean and they are so professional.

Have you though about getting the full Brazilian done? What was you biggest fear? What did you think about it?

ENTWINE NATURALLE COUTURE @PEARLEVENT

This past Sunday I was at the Pearl Event with Entwine Naturalle Couture. I stood with them as a ‘Brand Specialist’ and I must say I love doing this because I get to share the natural hair product’s information with others. I also get to meet so many different beautiful people.

During my conversations with the visiter I felt like my energy was running quite low. I was so tired from working about 8hrs the pervious day and being busy all week. However, I tried to do my best with interacting and asking the booth visitors if they heard or knew the product, shared information on how they assists with hydration and shared the specials we were offering at the event.

Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean 2015 Evening

Hi There,

This past Saturday was the Pearls of The Dutch Caribbean 2015 – Gala & Awards Show. As I previously shared I was nominated and in the category of Student. However, I did not win 🙁 But on the bright side winning was not the most important aspect of the evening for me because I was contented with the fact that I was nominated!

Seeing that I double booked this day with the Party Over Hair Event I decided to not go and just attend the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean. I still feel a bit disappointed in myself because I could have mingled & networked with likeminded beauty/fashion enthusiast….ohhh well next time.

The whole evening of the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean was a great first time experience but I felt that different areas could be developed a little more. But I think that the organisation will ask for feedback and make the right adaptions for the next time.

Ending I would like to congratulate all my fellow nominees and the winning nominees of the Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean!

Enjoy the pictures I took of the evening below 🙂

Francis Sling is the artist that created all the artwork seen below. I am also thinking about purchasing a work of art from him, they are AMAZINGLY MADE!
