Coconut Water isn't just for drinking !


I did a deep conditioner last night and rinsed my hair with coconut water ( I had to use 2 small pouches to wash it thoroughly) and then, did a quick rinse with regular water. My hair has never felt better or been so shiny ! Give it a shot !!!

True You Cosmetics

True You Cosmetics







Those are some of the pics I took wearing "True You Cosmetics" ! I am obsessed with the color "Florence" (the fierce red color) it made my teeth look so white !! I also loved blending all 3 colors in the "So Haute Iconic Lip Palette" to create a nice everyday wearable color !

I kept my eyes simple because I was wearing a bold lip and I really loved how the lipstick went on, nice and smooth, not cakey or clumpy. It is very important to me that my lipstick does not "chunk" up on my lips and these lipsticks did not let me down !



The company "True You Cosmetics" emphasizes on the following :
"On the Go Glamour..." Drench your lips in trendy color and shine with our ultra-moisturizing glosses. Our silky smooth lipstick infused with hydration and long-lasting color will surely have your lips wanting more. Create lip looks you love with our Haute Palette & Nude Palette. Pocket sized palettes include three lip colors in a convenient palette, perfect for the woman on the go!

"Build Your Signature Look..." The buildable, trendy colors from the Iconic Lip Color Collection are meant to mix and match, essentially creating a custom signature color. All of our lipsticks have complimentary lip gloss colors that enhance the pigments in the lipstick. You can take our recommendations, or you can create your own. There are no rules when using True You Cosmetics, and that's the beauty of it all!

I am very satisfied with the lipsticks and I also have a love for red lipstick ! I don't wear it often but when I do, I feel sassy !!! Plus, it can dress up a simple outfit !

Do it Yourself Beauty Fixes

The next time you have a beauty problem and need a trip to the spa and either don't have the time or money, head to your kitchen instead. Chances are it’s has all the necessities you need to make many problem-solving beauty and skin-care treatments, etc All you need is time and patience and a handful of common ingredients found in your fridge or pantry. You may never look at your fridge or pantry the same way again!

Avocado Hair Mask

What You Will Need:


Half of a ripe peeled avocado, one egg and two tablespoons of wheat germ oil. (You can also substitute wheat germ oil for olive or castor oil.)


In a small bowl, mash the avocado until it's smooth. Then add the egg and oil and blend well.

Massage the mixture to dry hair, starting from the ends up. Once you've applied it all, cover your head with a shower cap or small plastic bag, grab a book and set the timer for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and shampoo out.


PS. I also use pure avocado on my face when it gets dry, works wonders !





Tea Hair Treatment

2 tea bags (chamomile, a golden mix for blondes; rooibos, a rich orange for redheads; or black tea, dark for brunettes)
2 cups water

1. Once a week -- or whenever you feel you could use a shinier locks. Steep tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool to room temperature. Be very careful. Stir through mixture and place hand in it to make sure it has completely cooled to a comfortable temperature .

2. Pour the mixture over wet, just washed hair, rubbing it in , in the same way you would shampoo.
