Naturel Lyfe Liquid African Black Soap

 


I love african black soap. I normally buy a big block at the African Arts Festival in Brooklyn every summer and let it last me all year. I've always wished that I could have it in liquid form so that I can more easily use it in my hair.

Relax With a Glass of Green Smoothie!


Its certainly been a while since I have last made or even tasted a glass of smoothie. This is mostly due to being imprisoned by Gestation Diabetes throughout my pregnancy. I swear, everything I love, I could not have because it had too much sugar or starch so it felt like I was in prison. Lol! Now that DJ is here I can go back to making my healthy smoothies. It will also be great for me as I try to get my body back.

I decided to have a refreshing healthy snack tonight and this old favorite smoothie recipe came to mind.

Ingredients:
  • Two big handfuls of baby spinach
  • One handful of frozen strawberries
  • One small tangerine
  • One cup of coconut water
That is all that you need! It tasted sooooo good and knowing that its good for you is simply a plus. This made about three generous servings. 

Do you make smoothies at home? Share your recipes. Would you like me to post more recipes?

Taste Of Motherhood

Derrick Vincent Jr. (DJ)


On December 23rd, I gave birth to my lovely son and got my first taste of motherhood as he looked at me for the first time. My life was about to change forever but for the better. 

Everyday during my hospital stay I would look at every finger, toe, wrinkle and facial expressions in disbelief that I now own a person. A person that I instantly fell in love with and one who will get my love unconditionally until I am old and gray and took my last breath. I love this little boy with all my being.

The Simple starter kit includes face cleaning wipes, moisturizing face wash and replenishing rich moisturizer. All of which are very gentle for all skin types - especially for sensitive skin.  It is the perfect little kit to throw in your purse as well.
