Transformation Tuesday (in a process)

Hey beauties!

I have been wanting to get back to my old lifestyle eating only fruits and vegetables and doing intense workouts everyday because that's healthy correct?

Everyone has their own way of "being healthy" some people will eat cookies chips and nasty pork and go around claiming they are healthy. Mainly because what they eat is making them happy and they probably have no idea what that is actually doing to their body. But let them think that that is healthy. Healthy is being happy with who you are even if you eat all the wrong things and you are slowly killing yourself.

Ways that I'm trying to be "healthy" again and hopefully some of you all will consider these ideas as well.

Staying prayed up - as long as you have Jesus everything will be possible. If you want a new job better opportunities illnesses set free. You just need patience and prayer. Nothing will come when you want it but when the time is right.

Eating the right foods - this is a struggle because fried foods aren't always the best for the body but they are the best to your taste buds. I am slowly stepping away from fried foods. Of course I don't eat red meats or pork they give me horrible headaches that I don't have time to have. So basically all I eat is chicken sometimes turkey fruits and vegetables I'm a sucker for vegetables.

Getting enough rest- if we don't get enough rest how will we function correctly? Mmm not to well. Eventually we will get cranky, mess everything up and the list goes on and on. Lack of sleep can lead to heart disease,  strokes and many more health problems. With enough sleep you can make the right decisions and be able to pay attention longer.

Get rid of negative energy- if there is someone or something that is constantly getting on your nerves. Let it or them go. You can't be healthy with a side of stress and aggravation and a topping of negative energy, it just doesn't work that way. I'm not saying just give up on the person or thing,  before letting go talk about the issue or try to work it out if that doesn't help the next decision is yours.

Last but not least working out this part everyone dreads including myself I use to love working out I got use to waking up at 4 to do insanity and I felt great. To get back to that type of schedule and a intense workout like that I will have to take baby steps. The recommended amount of time we should get cardio in a day is 30 minutes. I recommend for starters a hour a week. Whether it's running denise Austin or Tae bo just take it easy.

Bobbi Boss Genesis Hair Review

Hey beauties I hope all is well.

Last year I purchased Bobbi Boss Genesis First class Remi which you can re-use. I'm reusing it now and like the first time I had it in it's. . .
  1. Shedding
  2. tangles
  3. does not hold curls
I know human hair sheds but I didn't know with me just sitting still or moving my head a little would cause my hair to shed. I paid 173 for two bundles (it was on sale) and 173 should not be shedding all over the place.

Tangling I can deal with being I have natural hair I have become skilled with detangling my 4c hair. It would be nice if the hair didn't tangle though because who wants to deal with detangling when hair is going to be all over the place.

I curled my hair for my formal wear part of the pageant and once I stepped on stage it was like what curls? Which is upsetting my hair had no type of style it's a pageant I'm suppose to look fabulous hair included but that wasn't happening. 

Point is I hate this hair please PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT buy this hair. I had Duby before that was half the cost of Bobbi boss and was better then Bobbi Boss it was just too

what products dry my 4c hair type out

Hello my natural beauties! Have you ever wondered why your hair is so dry all the time? You have stopped using products that contain sulfate you use moisturizing sprays,  lotions and do hot oil treatments on a regular. It could be because you wash your hair too often. This is mainly for my African American beauties. Another thing is women stopped using grease once they went natural. I have heard that's a bad idea but I'm still not putting any grease in my hair.

I have started paying attention to what products dry my 4c hair out the most and that would  be

Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Conditioner (the worst) 
It's suppose to help with dandruff, Eczema and Psoriasis. The first two that were listed are the reasons why I purchased it. Not only was my hair supper dry the next day even though while I was washing it in the shower it felt so good (don't get fooled) my scalp wasn't healed and my head still looked like a white Christmas (yes that much dandruff)

The second product that dries my hair is the cantu line
I have used their leave in conditioner when I twist my hair I used a ample amount and tried using a lot and no matter what my hair was still dry. 
I also have the shampoo and conditioner that I haven't used in a while but I guess the reason why my hair was drying out was because the shampoo has sulfate in it. Read the ingredients before you purchase something. Don't buy it because it worked for aunt Sally that's a whole different hair type then you.

Products that have not dried my hair out so much is anything with argan oil.
It contains a high amount of vitamin E.
vitamin E is good for strengthening your hair and causes hair growth!
Argan oil is also good for making your hair softer, silker and shinier which is why I will only use argan conditioner on my hair I haven't shampoo in months. 

I highly recommend the organix argan oil line it's amazing it's affordable and it works magic.

I hope you learned less washing more argan oil

Sephora Mini Haul

Nail Polish: Sephora's Formula X The color is Exclamation tea rose pink

I have been wanting polish try a blush that had a burgundy tint to it but I was scared to buy any wihtout trying it out. Whicht is how I ended up in Sephora just to try out a blush. When she applied it to the first cheek I instantly fell in a love and I knew I wanted that blush. My mom said I looked like raggedy Ann so when using this blush you have to be light handed because its so pigment. I was hesitant to buy this because of my sensitive skin. I had a breakout from my ulta blush and I have been very cautious since then. I have not seen a new pimple or anything so for people with sensitive skin don't be scared of the blush. I also didn't want to spend $30 on a blush especially when I said I didn't want to buy any makeup.  But being it's so pigment it will last for a long time.

I fell in love with this polish because it reminded me of a babydoll pink and it looked so great with my complexion. A problem I have with almost every nail polish is that when I get off work and I take my shoes and socks off I look down and see chipped nails after doing them before I went to work. With this nail polish I think it took three days for the polish to chip it was a miracle and new record. One coat looks good but on my big toe I had to do two coats because it looked so watery. Overall I love this polish.

Okay now I got this spray Because it sounded cool and I wanted to get something else for whatever reason. I was scared it was going to break me out but it hasn't yet. It does control oil and I have noticed that my makeup looks more matte and so neutral. I have been getting more compliments about how great my skin looks since I started using this. I got the sample one which was like $10 $15 something like that I do suggest you all try this.

Something better

I'm always saying if you broke up then its not meant to be. I have been reconsidering that. Have you ever beat yourself up over breaking up with someone? Sometimes something may end so you can learn lessons. If one relationship you had was fine but it just ended don't automatically assume it wasn't meant to be. That person could be the one.

You then move on and find someone else and that relationship was good but ended badly. Look at that as a lesson so when the old person comes back into your life or new person comes into your life you will be prepared and well aware of how to respond to certain situations. Your ex could be the one but God felt like you two weren't ready for each other at the moment. So that's why it ended. Think about it.

Have a great Monday beauties remember what happened last week let it stay there it's a new week a start and new opportunities!
