Do you like your hair?

SheaMoisture Black Castor Oil

Hair. It’s a big thing, right? I mean, I don’t care if you’re a little girl or living it up in your octogenarian years, chances are you have some issues with your hair. I’m with you, sister. My hair and I have such a love-hate relationship that many days, I’m shocked to see that my hair hasn’t run away from me. It sounds dramatic, I know, but I’m not always that sweet and attentive to my curls. I’ve gotten better but man, I used to color, perm and toss heat on my hair and then get livid when it wouldn’t grow. Isn’t that some craziness? Why do we do that? We put our strands through the ringer and then get furious when they aren’t “cooperating” with us.

When Pregnant Chicks Want Hair Color – Roux Saves the Day!

Sponsored post. All opinions are my own. 

Let’s rap about hair color, babes. Do you do it? You know I do! I am forever dyeing my hair and likely won’t stop any time soon. I’ve taken a break while pregnant but as soon as baby boy makes his appearance, I’ll be running to get some highlights or who knows – maybe I’ll go purple or magenta! Until I can get my fix, I’ll be using Roux Fanci-Full Temporary Hair Color Rinse.


Have you heard of this brand? Sold in Sally Beauty Salons nationwide and on, Roux gives you the option to temporarily change or modify your hair color. And easily! The temporary Haircolor Rinse is perfect for pregnant chicks like me who may not want to do an all over color. Because the Rinse doesn’t have any ammonia or peroxide in it, I felt completely safe using it. I selected the color Chocolate Kiss and while it was darker than I preferred, it was nice to get a hint of darkness in these summery days.

My Hair is Loving Cantu for Natural Hair!

This sponsored post is brought to you by Cantu and I got the opportunity to review Cantu products. Be proud of me, babes. I am still keeping up with my hair these days. I made a vow to spend more time caring for my hair and like clockwork, I’ve been doing deep conditioners and daily scalp massages. My hair is thriving and I couldn’t be happier. 

Cantu Hair Products

You’ve heard of Cantu, right? I’ve been using their products for years and though the packaging has changed and the ingredients are different, it appears that they are even better than ever. I mean, the packaging alone is up my alley because they’ve got for Natural Hair on everything which tells me that these products are likely formulated for people with hair like mine. Yeah mon! 

Basically, Cantu had me a hello! I received the following products to test drive. The ones in bold are what I’ll be talking about in this post.

Zoya Focus Nail Polish collection

Zoya Focus Nail Polish Collection

Fall is right around the corner and yours truly couldn’t be more excited. I always look forward to Summer until well, it gets here. Summer in Florida is like…not pleasant. Not even a little bit. I welcome the cooler breezes and lower AC bills. I welcome the changing of leaves and prepping for the holidays. Fall nail polish collections? LOVE THEM! They’re pretty typical for the most part but I love the richer shades. Zoya Focus is part I of Zoya’s Fall collection. Stay tuned for Flair!

Zoya Hannah

Hannah is a red that while lovely, I feel has been done before. That doesn’t mean I love it any less. It’s a classic red and it’s one of those reds that I couldn’t wear as a child. Take that, mama!

Protect Yo Skin This Summer

Sunscreen products

Summer is in full swing here in Florida and uh, we’re melting. Quite literally, actually. I’m a fan of this time of year, but it gets to the point where it is almost downright unbearable. But bear it, we must, because I’ve got a toddler who REALLY thrives being outside. Elle loves everything about the water and while we can’t always make it to the beach or pool, we’ve gotten her a huge inflatable pool that she can’t get enough of.

A silicone face brush? The FOREO LUNA ain’t ordinary.


Oh, hey girls! And guys! Sooooo…I’m back featuring another FOREO item and this time this is their skincare brush called the FOREO LUNA. Like the ISSA, I had my eyes on this baby at first glance and was thrilled to get the opportunity to review it via iFabbo.


Now, I know what you’re thinking. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I have a very close relationship with a brand that starts with Clari and rhymes with bobonic. Said relationship is still very strong and kickin’ and chances are we won’t be breaking up any time soon. I wanted to reallllly focus on the LUNA’s attributes without comparing it to similar products out there. And let’s face it – a silicone facial brush and and a facial brush with an oscillating head are VERY different. So, let’s jump right in. Here are some features you should know about Lady LUNA.

Healthy Hair Is Loved Hair

It’s Healthy Hair Month, babes! This sponsored post is brought to you by Beautiful Textures and I am so excited to get the opportunity to try out some new hair products. Because, hair is life. I recently took out my glorious marley braids and my hair was in serious need of pampering. Thanks to salt water and chlorine, my color treated hair has in pretty pitiful shape, y’all. It’s embarrassingly, really. I’m also in need of a cut or shape up to keep my cut looking fresh, but that’s a blog post for another day. For now, let’s rap about these Beautiful Textures items that I was sent.

Beautiful Textures products

I’ve been rocking natural hair for over 10 years now and I don’t even want to tell you how much I’ve spent on products for my hair texture. The number is probably in the hundreds. That said, I was thrilled to see that Beautiful Textures provides products for men and women of various hair types, especially us curly, wavy, kinky, coily and frizzy folx. I’ve been having a love-hate relationship the past year and it’s mostly due to my laziness. I don’t care what kind of hair you have, hair needs love. I’m learning to show mine more love and it started with the Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner.

I Don’t Smell Like A Goat Anymore. Thanks Armpit Detox!

Armpit Detox

My armpits have issues. And no, that isn’t code for anything else. It’s pretty literal. I have #pitproblems, y’all. While most of you can shave and apply deodorant all willy nilly, I have to practically spent a good 20-30 minutes A WEEK caring for my extra sensitive pit area. I know, it’s crazy. I’ve recently come across the idea of detoxing my armpits and the idea sounded so bizarre (and genius) that I just had to share it with you fine folk.

Armpit Detox

Because who doesn’t want to read a post about armpit detoxing, right? Things you should know…

  • I don’t use traditional deodorants and haven’t for years.
  • I use this stuff.
  • I don’t shave.
  • I get my pits waxed and maintain by trimming.
  • I prevent razor bumps with this stuff.
  • I moisturize and cleanse my pits with an exfoliating glove and this stuff.
  • I moisturize nightly with this stuff.
