#FRIYAY #3 Review| SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

So I admit that I gave into the hype when I first big chopped and went natural. I made the mistake of buying products because I heard a lot about them and I saw they were popular. (But doesn’t everybody?) In the beginning of my natural hair journey, I never really took the time to get to know my hair and figure out exactly what it needed. This is more so true when I had a TWA (teeny weeny afro). Because at the time, I would slap products on my head, think I was done, and call it a day.

#LifeInView| The Visionary Friend

The definition of the word visionary means to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. Synonyms for the word being: insightful, perceptive, and discerning. Can you use these words to describe yourself as a friend or your friends? And I’m not trying to call anyone out by writing this, I learned this lesson too. I recently had to look at myself and reflect on what kind of a friend I was.

#SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex

I only had to use one pad to clean my face and I felt like my face was clean. I didn’t feel like I needed to wash it more. Now I have quite a bit going on with my skin on my face. I have oily-combination skin, hyperpigmentation, and scarring from picking at pimples. I’ve been using this product for months and I can truly see a difference in my skin. It feels smoother and my scarring is less noticeable. I’m going to be a little bit sad when I finally use the last one. So if you know of a product like this let me know or Dr. Jeffery Dover if you could make more, that would be great thanks.

#TackleThatFro| I Give Up Creamy Crack!

My mother was a child in the 60’s, in her teenage years by the 70’s. And at that time there was such societal pressure for black women to fit in with the rest (the same can be said for today). I can say from experience that natural hair definitely makes you stand out. But during that time, they were told, “Your hair would look so much prettier if it was straight.”, “You look unkempt with your hair like that.” Words like these influenced some of them to blend in and that influence trickled down to later generations.

#FRI-YAY #2 Review|Kroger Buffalo Style Popcorn Chicken

I tried to look up reviews for this chicken, I found a few. I love when people go out of their way to make food or a bad product sound great. One reviewer said they thought this chicken was fantastic and then in the next sentence mentioned that the size and seasoning differ each bag. My favorite part was when I read that if I add more buffalo sauce to the chicken I would love it even more. So not only do you get inconsistency each bag, but buffalo sauce is not included?
