Heal Your Body With Himalayan Sole

via GIPHY

Hooray! Hooray!! Hooray!!! After multiple tech issues, I can get back into my blog. I’m not gonna lie though. I did enjoy that break! Anyway. Here is the blog post I promised a few weeks ago on Himalayan Sole. I can honestly say that I do feel a difference in my body on the days that I drink it versus the days I do not. You may recall that I have collapsed arches in my feet. I wake up with horrible stiff and painful feet. One glass of this in the morning and I feel invigorated and the pain is gone. Check out the blog below to see another one of my self care tips.

Beauty Bit- Actually Organic Argan Oil Review

FTC: I was given this bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil for review. This is an honest review.
actually organic argan oil

I love using oils on my skin and hair. When Actually Organic Argan Oil offered me a free bottle to try, I was very excited. Not all argan oil is created equal. This particular brand is very good because it actually made from 100% pure and cold pressed argan oil from Africa. This isn’t the synthetic-kinda mixed with other questionable things type of oil. The owner of the company went to find the purest, best smelling oil. I have been using this oil for a month now. I use it on my cuticles, my hair, the corners of my eyes, my lips, and my elbows. I really have been getting my use out of this oil. I really talk about how I use the oil in the video below. The 4 ounce bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil is on sale at Amazon for $23.99. I was actually given the 1 ounce bottle. It costs $11.99 and lasts a long time. After all I have been using it for, I still have a great deal of oil left. You really don’t need that much oil for each use. Check out hte video below for more.

Keep Your Scalp Itch Free With Canviiy

canviiy

The weather is finally starting to get cooler, and this is the time where my scalp starts to get itchy. I am so glad Canviiy showed up in my inbox with a free sample. Thank you Canviiy for the free sample. Y’all this product is so good. Canviiy is a combination of different oils and ingredients that, when used on the scalp with the easy to use applicator, stops the itch. It truly works. I tried the samples they gave me, and I was so amazed by it. I usually use tea tree oil to stop the itch, but Canviiy swears by their product and claim that it gives you a long-lasting scalp soothing sensation.

Plus Size Lingerie-Checking Out Olga Flirty Collection #FearlesslyFlirty

olga-flirty-collection
First off I want to say thank you to Olga Intimate’s for sending me this lovely box of goodies from their new Flirty Collection. Even though I was sent these lovely items, this is a true review. If you aren’t familiar with the Olga Flirty Collection yet, please read the rest of this post and check out the video. Olga Intimates has a new line of lingerie out for plus size women called the Flirty Collection. I was sent a few items from the collection and decided to do a video below to give you my first impressions on this #FearlesslyFlirty line.

I haven’t tried my pieces on yet, but I honestly can’t wait to try them out. The fabrics feel great, the straps looks sturdy, and most of the bras are smoothing. They panty seemed comfortable too. I am usually not that big into lingerie. I just want something functional that fits. Most of the time, being a full figured bra wearer, it is hard for me to even find affordable bras that don’t cost under $60. I did find one bra brand at Walmart that sells cheaper, surprisingly well made bras, but the secret is out on them. Now when I go to Walmart, they are almost always sold out, or I have to fight through a mess on the racks to find what I want. They also rarely sell those bras on their website. With these bras, panties, and babydoll slips from Olga, I don’t have to do that. The Olga Flirty collection is affordable and readily available now online and in stores. Check below for details. Photos from Olga.

OZ Naturals

 

FTC: I was given this bottle of OZ Naturals Hyaluronics Acid Moisturizing Serum by Brandbacker.com. This is an honest review.

You guys have to get this. It is a pretty smooth serum that has some great anti-aging properties. The ingredients are great too. No alcohols, sulfates, or parabens.

Beauty Bit- Temporary Hair Color For Natural Hair

temporary hair color

I love temporary hair color for natural hair because you can spray it in and then wash it out. I have been using some sprays that I recently got from the BSS and my local Sally Beauty Supply. The only problem I have found is that it sometimes gets hard and crusty, so I let it dry and then kind of knock the flakes before I go. You can also use hair chalk and mousse. This is the temporary hair color I use from Sally Beauty Supply. In MissKenK’s video, she shows you how to properly spray and chalk the hair. Enjoy! Photo from Sally Beauty Supply!

This is my favorite brand of temporary hair color!
