Thank you so much @nubianheritage for sending me these amazing products! I’m such a huge fan of your brand and can’t wait to play with these items. I’ve been using the Abyssinian Oil & Chia Seed Body Wash for almost 2 years if not already 2 years and it’s my favorite scent so I’m glad that I have an extra back up! #nubianheritage #naturalbodycare #naturalskincareproducts #faithhaller #naturalalternatives
Tea Tree iOil is a plant extract derived from the Melaleuca Alternifolia, This plant has several antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. As the season changes our body becomes more susceptible to different things and I’m going to talk about the many ways that you can use Tea Tree Oil being that it is considered one of the most powerful essential oils because of it’s many healing benefits.and it’s ability to treat multiple skin conditions. * Acne/Cystic Acne * Cold Sores/Blisters * Eczema * Psoriasis * Skin Tags * Warts * Ringworm * Athlete’s Foot * Nail Fungus * Boils * Moles * Keloids * Lice * Dandruff * BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) * And More... _ Tea Tree Oil is also a great natural cleaning solution alternative. It’s also used for aromatherapy. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Name something you like to use #teatreeoil for?
If you would have told me 5+ years ago that I wouldn’t be into makeup as much anymore I would have laughed you to scorn. It’s not that I felt I needed makeup to be happy because I loved my skin and still do til this day but I loved makeup. It was my passion.It was a part of me. I would wake up just to put it on and wouldn’t leave the house without it. I would carry a nice size personal makeup bag that was stuffed with everything that I put on my face including an extra pair of lashes. My essentials, well I really didn’t have one I was literally a pack rat when it came to makeup I couldn’t narrow down to 5 essentials if I wanted to. I would say back then I probably wore makeup 95% of the time. Today it’s totally reversed. I’d say I am bare face 95% of the time now. I even go to church with no makeup more so now then ever. I love makeup still but it’s not an necessity for me. I prefer perfecting my skin through proper skincare. What I have grown to love is lashes! Which is a shocker. I was never into lashes the way I am today. Now don’t get me wrong if I have some good mascara I’m good without lash extensions but I can’t deny that with or without makeup lashes make a world of a difference. With the right pair of lashes GIRRRRL you will feel like you are on top of the world. I say all of this to say that we will evolve as we get older. We will have a different outlook on life and what matters to us. So expect it! Things that we loved and couldn’t live without 5+ years ago they will probably not be relevant to us as we get older. It’s nothing wrong with that. Embrace the change in your life! _ #houstonblogger #houstonbloggers #makeupforblackwomen #makeupformelaningirls #makeupformelaninwomen #browngirlbloggers #browngirlblogger #browngirlmakeup #browngirlswhoblog #blackswhoblog
As woman we take on a lot of things and for us what some men don’t know is our work doesn’t stop especially more so now because women are now more independent. We’re business Owner, Mother’s, wives, we keep everyone life balanced along with our life and then if we have our own business we taking care of that. Our job never stops. We neglect ourselves to make sure everyone around us is good. We give our last. And now Its time for us to put what we’re giving everyone else back into us. I want to encourage all of my lady friends to take time for yourself. It’s ok to say “NO” for other people to step it up. It’s ok to ask for help. We’re not machines. God gave us the gift to nurture and we nurture everyone but ourselves. That ain’t healthy. I want to tell you it’s ok to take a break. We all deserve a break. We can’t be all God designed us to be if we don’t take care of ourselves. Self-care is so much more deeper then physical things.
Today we’re discussing on the topic of #selfcare and in the first post I went into great depths of what true self-care is. It’s a must read that you have got to check out! So since we’re on the topic of self-care and the many ways to apply it to our lives. I’m talking about @nubianheritage today! These products was gifted to me. Now I’ve already been using their products maybe for 2 years now because I started switching to organic products gradually in 2016 and they were one of the first brands I tried. I shared my reason of why I decided to go natural and use holistic alternatives on my blog but in short I was having continual issues with my body and I had to make drastic decisions because I didn’t want to continue having the issues I was having. Doctors would prescribe me with medicine that didn’t work or only made it worse and I was tired so I started doing research and that’s how I stumbled across this brand. They are All-Natural and cruelty free. They use ingredients that you can pronounce such as black seed oil, buriti Oil, Haitian Verviers, Tamanu Oil, Mango Butter, Raw Shea Butter, Tea Tree Oil, frankincense, papaya extract, myth, neem oil and so much more natural ingredients. The great thing is that you can find this brand in places like @vitaminshoppe, @walmart and @target so they are easily accessible to us.
Self Care is everywhere now it has become so mainstream and in trend the term I feel is being so overused . It’s mainly marketed to us women. Why? Well of course we love to indulge and you have to think about the load we carry as women. It can be stressful and we know we need a break many times because we be burned out so it’s easy to market to us because we find that value in it. But the term has become so saturated it’s become a way to make money for some and a way to create a persona on Instagram people are losing the true meaning of what self care is. Massages, yoga, sound baths, essential oils,, healing crystals, candles, and more although wonderful it’s not the foundation of what self-care is. It is not THE CURE! If you don’t truly know how to care for yourself, these things that I listed will only become a bandaid to an infected wound. You can’t heal an infected wound with a bandaid. That’s dangerous! And let me just say there is nothing wrong with doing things for yourself. I work in the beauty industry so I do know. Pampering yourself is a great thing. But we never should use these things as a camouflage. Self-Care is being free and knowing that you can’t do it all. It’s being resilient. it’s able to know when you need support and getting it, it’s being able to be in tune with your emotions and dissecting them appropriately and effectively at the right time . We don’t always get it it’s something that we constantly have to work on like a muscle. It’s not going to happen overnight but if we keep working at it we will see some changes in our lives. Dr. Campion says that “true resilience is becoming more in touch with yourself. Feeling safe to assert one’s needs, feelings and desires. Feeling worthy of your own time. It is critical to hold your own boundaries around your needs and your values in order to feel safe.” We must establish personal boundaries and stick to them. This is part of valuing ourselves!. Listen I can go on but until we deal with the root everything else only becomes a temporary fix that doesn’t solve the problem. What is self-care to you and what are you doing daily to truly care for your mental, physical, and spiritual health?

@anastasiabeverlyhills subculture palette was one of the most talked about palettes and not so much in a good way. I personally was part of the small percentage that loved it and believe there is a learning curve to master a palette of this sort.. the look I created in the previous photo was inspired by a photo I seen on @colouredraine page created by @ms_bentivegas using their shade “lemondrop” and I fell in love with the look so much I recreated it in my own way using New Wave & Edge on the lid.. thank you for the inspo @ms_bentivegas and be sure to check out her work. *SWIPE LEFT TO SEE INSPO _ Full details of this look will be on the last photo of the day :) sorry I’m keeping you waiting! _ #abhsubculture #anastasiabeverlyhills #stilacosmetics #pixiglow #blackopalbeauty #ebinnewyork #ebinbeauties #beccacosmetics #veilcosmetics #nyxcosmetics #milanicosmetics #kissnypro #maybelline #browngirlmakeup #houstonblogger #houstonbloggers #browngirlbloggers #browngirlbeauty #makeupinspiration
“Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Proverbs 27:5-6 KJV _ It’s hard to take open rebuke even when what a person is saying is right. For many of us we put up a wall of defense because what is being said about us is just not the most comfortable thing to hear. But open rebuke when it’s coming from someone who loves and cares for you and wants to see you do better and grow and be fruitful it’s better. Why is that? Because when someone loves you and willing to tell you your faults and when you’re wrong in a situation their intent is not to hurt you but honesty will eventually lift you up. It will help you go down the right path. People that’s constantly stroking your flesh when they know you out of line those are the people you should worry about. What is their motive? Yea they camouflage their lack of love with a soft kiss, words of “encouragement” I call fluff words to make you feel better knowing they sending you down the wrong path but they don’t care about that. And when you slip and fall they disappear NO WHERE TO BE FOUND! why because they didn’t care from the start. The more people stroke our egos the more we think we are right, the more prideful we become it truly stunts our growth. when people aren’t honest to us you have to question their love and motive because when you’re not honest to someone it creates a form of deceit. And deceit can lead a person down the wrong path. Wounds from a friend it hurts but we can heal from wounds but at least you have someone that will stick their neck out to put you back on track. Surround yourself around people that want to see you do good and that will tell you “hey that wasn’t cool” or “hey you being lazy you need to get it together “ or hey if you don’t get on track and do this you will be headed down the road to destruction” . Listen and know where the words of a true friend or true person that loves you is coming from. If you have no one around you like that then something is wrong. _ I’m smiling because I know I have some people that love me! _ Details of this look will be in the next photo #makeupforblackwomen
