KYMARO GLAMOUR Eyes Review

I was given the opportunity by mommasreviews to review these Kymaro Glamour Eyes.



Glitz & Glam package includes 6 different sets of lashes and 2 tubes of eyelash adhesive.  The Glitz and Glam kit includes lots of sparkly lashes to add fun to any special occasion. These lashes are sure to fulfill your deepest diva needs and are just a fraction of the price if you were to buy them at a beauty store.

Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you can't look good. Because mothers are so busy taking care of kids, the home, getting groceries, and so forth we are so busy tend to not take the time we need for us.

To be completely honest, I have only tried one of these and it was the very first one. I tried it on Thanksgiving Day and everyone loved it.  I don't really have any glamor in my life (I'm going to start making some happen, it is the holidays after all), but I will definitely wear one on Christmas and another on New Years. Stay tune for more picture and video updates.






Love you all
&
God Bless!

Hair Goal Length for 2011!

I've been wrestling with the idea of growing my hair to waist length for some time now.  But since I but my my hair and decide to go natural I'm starting all over again. So now starting at at about 1 inch (I'm not counting my relax end). I'm hoping to be NL by Dec 2011. Reaching NL will be  a major accomplishment, but I will not be satisfy until I reach waist length stretch!!!


I'm not satisfied, lol. I want my hair longer, who wouldn't want that? So for 2011, I would like to reach mid back length, after that my long term goal for 2012 is waist length.





Will you join me in setting both short and long term hair goals? 

Winter is here & so is my Shea Butter Mix

Shea butter provides natural ultraviolet sun protection and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. Shea Butter provides moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairing and protecting against weather damage, dryness and brittleness.
Shea butter is my family and I best friend for winter time! I use it for pretty much anything : hair, hands, lips, knees, let’s just say whole body moisturizer. It is one of the thickest product you can find as it solidifies like butter. But when melted or in its liquid form, it gets easier to apply ! Now don’t be scared, the solid form only needs you to be warmed up in between your hands & it instantly melts lol
I got my Shea Butter from an African store close to me and they sell it very reasonable. You can find it online, if you don't have an Africa store by you. I also notice that the Asian beauty supply starts selling these, but I rather support the African, that's my opinion.
Now i want to know who is going to be your best friend for this winter?
How can Shea Butter benefit me? Shea Butter can provide relief from everything from just dry skin to many minor dermatological diseases (if you have a serious skin condition, you should see a doctor).  It has been clinically shown to provide benefits.  Here are some of the benefits of Shea Butter for the skin:
  • Daily skin moisturizer (face and body)
  • Dry skin relief
  • Dry scalp
  • Skin rash- including diaper rash
  • Skin peeling, after tanning
  • Blemishes and wrinkles
  • Itching skin due to dryness
  • Sunburn
  • Shaving cream to reduce razor irritation
  • Small skin wounds
  • Skin cracks
  • Soften tough skin on feet (especially heels)
  • Stretch mark prevention during pregnancy
  • Minor burns
  • Eczema
  • Sun and wind protection
  • Even skin tone
  • Reduce blemishes and scarring
  • Eliminating scalp irritation from dryness or chemical processing
  • Preventing bumps after shaving
  • Reducing acne (especially in combination with African Black Soap)
  • Absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue
  • Helps restore elasticity to skin
  • Restores luster to hair


WARNING!  The smell of this stuff is strong, but it does bother me. I usually whip it with some flavored essential oil.

Going Natural

Hi Diva's,


I decided to go natural about 18 months ago, I was six months into my journey, when my husband said didn't want me to go natural. I was very upset about it and I went back to the shop and got my hair relax. I wasn't happy about it and I let him know that.


So just the other day, I'm cooking and my husband came into the kitchen and told me that I can go natural and to cut my hair into a style, I look at him like he was crazy. I ask him why the change all of a sudden, he said he wants me to be happy and that he will support me.


Well, I'm 12 weeks post now and I will be going natural. So, watch me as I go on this journey. I will be posting pictures as I go along the way.


I saw this youtube video and the story really caught my attention. My daughter (5) has also stated that she wants hair like her mommy, and I don't want her to feel that way.


Let me know your thoughts and feelings.





God Bless!

Thanksgiving Wishes

Hey Divas..



Hope everyone is enjoying their week...holiday season is upon on us, which means the stores will be crowded...and  seeing everyone out with their loved ones enjoying the season is beautiful to see.

Thanksgiving is this week, I have lots of cooking to do, but most of all, seeing the fam together will be nice.

I hope everyone have a wonderful thanksgiving and may the Lord bless you all.

MADEA’S 10 RULES FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER AT MY HOUSE

I taught this was funny, so I had to share! Enjoy!


1. Don't get in line asking questions about the food. "Who made the potato salad? Is it egg in there? Are the greens fresh? Is the meat in the greens turkey or pork? Who made the macaroni and cheese? What kind of pie is that? Who made it? Ask one more question and I will punch you in your mouth, knocking out all your fronts so you won't be able to eat anything.


2. If you can't walk or are missing any limbs, sit your ass down until someone makes your plate for you. Dinner time is not the time for you to be independent. Nibble on them damn pecans and walnuts to hold you over until someone makes you a plate.


3. If you have kids under the age of twelve, I will escort their little asses to the basement and bring their food down to them. They are not gonna tear my damn house up this year. Tell them that they are not allowed upstairs until it's time for Uncle Butchie to start telling family stories about their mommas and papas. If they come upstairs for any reason except for that they are bleeding to death, I will break a foot off in their asses!


4. There is going to be one prayer for Thanksgiving dinner! JUST ONE! We do not care that you are thankful that your 13 year old daughter gave birth to a healthy baby or your nephew just got out of jail. Save that talk for somebody who gives a damn. The time limit for the prayer is one minute. If you are still talking after that one minute is up, you will feel something hard come across your lips and they will be swollen for approximately 20 minutes.


5. Finish everything on your plate before you go up for seconds! If you don't, you will be cursed out and asked to stay your greedy ass home next year!


6. BRING YOUR OWN TUPPERWARE!! Don't let me catch you fixing yourself a plate in my good Tupperware knowing damn well that I will never see it again! Furthermore, if you didn't bring anything over, don't let me catch you making a plate period or it will be a misunderstanding.


7. What you came with is what you should leave with!! Do not leave my house with anything that doesn't belong to you. EVERYBODY WILL BE SUBJECTED TO A BODY SEARCH COMING AND GOING OUT OF MY DOMAIN!!!


8. Do not leave your kids so you can go hopping from house to house. This is not a DAYCARE CENTER ! There will be a kid-parent roll call every ten minutes. Any parent that is not present at the time of roll call, your child will be put outside until you come and get him or her. After 24 hours, I will call DHS on your ignorant ass!!


9. BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM BEFORE YOU COME INTO TOWN!! There will be no sleeping over at my house! You are to come and eat dinner and take your ass home or to your hotel room. EVERYBODY GETS KICK THE HELL OUT AT 11:00 pm. You will get a 15 minute warning bell ring.


10. Last but not least! ONE PLATE PER PERSON!! This is not a soup kitchen. I am not trying to feed your family until Christmas dinner! You will be supervised when you fix your plate. Anything over the appropriate amount will be charged to you before you leave. There will be a cash register at the door. Thanks to Cousin Alfred and his greedy ass family, we now have a credit card machine! So VISA and MASTERCARD are now being accepted. NO FOOD STAMPS OR ACCESS CARDS YET!

My Hair is Breaking at the Back and Sides

Ok, so I took a couple pictures of my hair and I notice that the back is coming out and that my sides r getting shorter and shorter. My hair is looking thin when it is down. What causing this you might ask. Well, first of all it fall and the clothing that I'm wearing is rubbing against the back of my neck. Second, my husband job is think about transferring him to another State. Third, my boss is driving me crazy. So were does that leave me? STRESS out!

So I need to stop stressing and make God work it out for me about my job and my husband job. If it is his will things will work out fine. Thank you Lord.

For my hair care regimen, this is what I will be doing to get the breakage under control:


  • using the aphogee 2-step protein treatment (I've used it before, and it help)
  • I will be using no heat for the next several months
  • getting my hair cornrow (with my own hair) for 2 months (till Jan 2011)
  • I will still be doing weekly deep conditioner every week w/Organic Root Stimulator
  • washing 2x a week and using shampoo 1x a week
  • bagging nightly
  • wear satin scarf for the remainder of the winter months with my clothing/jackets (I went out and bought different colors)
  • protective styling all the way till Spring (hoping that will help with the growth of my hair in the back and sides

Cornrows w/Twist for Her and Box Braids for Him

Ok, so I decide to braid my daughter and son hair over the weekend and this is the results.

I cornrow my daughter's hair and instead of braiding it to the end, I twist it. It came out really cute. I will keep this style for 2 week, and just re-twist the ends when it starts to look frizzy.  I also decide not to put any beads or end clips on her hair for awhile, I'm trying to grow her hair longer. So I'm hoping 6 months from now it will be longer and that will be in May.




For my son, he wants is hair in a big afro, so in the mean time I will be braiding it. I will keep his style in for 3-4 weeks.



As for little Flydivastyles 2 hair, I did not get the chance to braid her hair. I hope to do it tonight and I will show the results when completed.

While braiding, I use my Shea Butter mix. For daily moisturizing I use Luster's S-Curl Activator and Moisturizer "No Drip" Formula, it keeps their hair moisturize. At night I cover my daughter hair with a Satin Bonnet.


Let me know what you all think.

Enjoy your time here on earth. Let others know you love them, leave the world with people loving you and making a difference in someones life.

To my husband, my children, I love you more than anything on this earth, without you, I am nothing.

To my family and friends I love you!! Life is so fragile.... Use your time here wisely... Forgive & be Thankful.

Winter Regimen

For the winter months I usually do a lot of moisturizing, wear my hair in buns, braid outs, roller sets and for this year I will be adding knit hats with satin hair tie under it. Keeping it simple for the winter. Oh and I will be washing once a week or every 2 weeks (cause I'm always on the go and don't want to be getting sick with washing my hair everyday).

Also I usually stretch my relaxer for 4 months in the winter (I will try my best to go the first week in January).

Wonders of Carrot Juice

Carrot Juice

I've been drinking carrot juice since I was a little girl, my mom would fix it every weekend (Sundays). Its part of my culture so I'm use to the taste.

I usually drink a glass a day to help with my health, eyes, skin, and hair. I also make sure that my little ones drink a glass also.  Below I provide "The Wonders of Carrot Juice "
 
 
 
 
The Wonders of CARROT JUICE


Carrot juice, because of its many healthful benefits, is frequently called a the "miracle juice." A large number of people--throughout the United States and in all walks of life--suffering from various ailments have found that the inclusion of carrot juice in their diet has greatly improved their health. Countless others have found it to be a valuable "protective" agent in the building and maintenance of health in both children and adults, while its delicious flavor makes it popular with all members of the family as a beverage --plain or combined with other juices.

Gold mine of nutrients

Carrot juice is one of the richest sources of vitamin A that can be used in the daily diet. It also ranks high as a source of the other vitamins, especially those of the B complex. Its mineral content is equally rich, and includes calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron.

Its mineral content is equally rich, and includes calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron.


SKINCarrots are regarded as the 'herbal healer' of skin diseases as they promote the repair of skin tissue. Carrot juice is a valuable source of Vitamin A, which is a major vitamin for skin health. Carrots are rich in antioxidants, including phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, which protect, nourish and moisturize the skin. Nutrition received from carrots helps to reduce photosensitivity to promote skin renewal and protect the skin from sun damage.Carrot juice acts as an anti-inflammatory and revitalizes and tones the skin. Cosmetically, carrots are used to treat dermatitis, eczema, rashes and wrinkles caused by free radicals.

HAIR
A daily glass of carrot juice gives vital nutrients to the roots of the hair, thereby preventing hair loss and actually restoring your natural hair color. Juices provide the vitamins, enzymes, minerals and trace elements which go into the formation of hair.

EYE
The vitamin A content of carrot juice helps to strengthen the eyes. In many cases where defective eyesight was noted--as during the war--the condition was overcome by fortifying the diet with fresh carrot juice.

TEETH
Vitamin A promotes growth of bones and teeth.

How to prepare
Preparing Carrots for Juicing. Wash carrots thoroughly in cold water, using a stiff vegetable brush. Scrape lightly, but do not peel, as valuable vitamins and minerals lies close to the surface. The juice should be taken immediately it is made, if at all possible. If not, let the juice flow directly into glass jars which should then be covered with screw-on lids. After pouring the quantity to be used immediately, keep the remaining juice-tightly covered--in the refrigerator to prevent loss of vitamin and mineral content through oxidation.
