3 Essential Curly Hair Products

Happy Sunday y'all! As we are getting ready for the week, I wanted to share 3 products to keep your curly hair healthy.  Every girl who has curly hair should have the following essential items in their bathroom. First, every girl should have a wide comb in their shower to help detangle the curly knots from the bottom up.  Second, it's important to have a towel that you can dry and wrap your curls in that will  reduce fizziness, but keep your curls extra soft. Third, it's essential to have a diffuser in your bathroom cabinets to help diffuse your hair after you've applied your curly hair styling products.

Your Virtual Invitation with Paperless Post

Written invitations were a thing of the past as we have transitioned to creating virtual invitations since the beginning of the millennium. Although we loved shopping for stationery invitations at Hallmark, Target and Micheal's we now have the opportunity to save a little time by simply visiting our computer and searching for the Paperless Post company online. 

With an online company like Paperless Post , we now have access to an online stationery store that provides a variety of creative digital invitations. You can certainly say, our mode of communication has moved from paper to digital media. And thanks to Paperless Post company; users can now choose to send invites by email versus visiting the traditional post

While navigating their website, Paperless Post offers a wide range of customized designer invitations, save the dates, announcements, birthdays, and parties. You also have the unique option of creating your own event flyer with really cool Three D pop up graphics. Paperless Post has definitely differentiated themselves from other competitors. And I love it! 

As I navigated the several design options, I selected to go with a flyer template invitation. The templates are easy to work with as you get an opportunity to pre-select the style, color scheme and picture. Once all the information is placed on the template, the next step is to add your email guest list.  Once your list is finalized, you then select send. The whole procedure is as easy as 1, 2, 3...and before you know it, your guest will be checking their email inbox to RSVP to your event! 

Thanks to Paperless Post company, I  was able to draft and finalize our next upcoming event.

Shanti Bowl

Music and Sound have been used as tools in ancient history to promote healing and meditation. The singing bowl such as the Singing Bowl is one of the first instruments utilized by mankind. The simple instrument and tool creates a mysterious soundwave that allows you to become one with your body. It also provides different frequencies to relax the body, mind and soul.

I had an opportunity to create a healing place with a  Singing Bowl in my own  home and garden. And prior to being gifted a beautiful handmade piece by Jessica, I remember praying to create a soul loving space in my home after my second miscarriage. My body had experienced death within my own body. And my mind and soul had filled with pain, agony and sadness. As I allowed myself to experience every emotion, I had also created a hostile environment and did not want to linger in that space forever. So, I slowly started to shift the energy in every room to honor, heal and nurture myself.

One day, after cleaning and rearranging the house, I laid down to do a little self-care and watch an episode of my favorite show: The Bing Bang Theory. When all of sudden a big thump noise startled my dog and I, so, I slowly got up to investigate where the strange noise had come from. The rooms where all in place and no items had fallen. I then flipped the porch light on, opened the door and scoped the right side of my house near my window and I found a large green grasshopper. How strange! I thought to myself and took a picture.

You see, earlier in the day before cleaning, my heart was weighing heavy when I woke up in tears and sadness. I remember taking  a deep breathe and praying. So, after experiencing such a strange thing, I decided to look up the meaning.

Grasshopers are also totem animals, animal spirit guides. They often enter peoples lives when a spiritual direction or spiritual healing is needed. By grasshopper showing himself physically to you, he is asking you seek also his spirit and healing vibrations. 

Grasshopers can only jump forward, not backward or sideways, showing up could be reaffirming to you that you are taking the right steps to move forward and telling you to go ahead and move forward, getting past what is hindering you. 

That same week, Jessica had confirmed my shipment for the singing bowl and it was almost as if my prayer had aligned with my spiritual needs because I had unresolved chronic emotional stress in a particular area of my life connected to my womb. My emotional stress was causing a disturbance that began to manifest to physical illness causing my life energy to leak away from my body. My energy was shifting drastically between anger, fear, depression, and sadness. It was controlling my ability to not move forward until I decided to start healing and honoring my body.

The Shanti bowl and the grasshopper are one of many things centering myself to understand my thoughts and emotions and how my energy works in the female body language through music, prayer and meditation. Thanks to the grasshopper encounter, I am also learning to overcome obstacles efficiently to be able to jump into successful ventures without preparation or planning. It shows me to take a leap of faith and jump forward into a specific area of my life without fear. The shanti bowl has become part of my music therapy and sound healing. The rich harmony soundwaves help eliminate stress and promote holistic healing.

CABE Social Event

Are blogger/social events worth attending? Well, let me tell you, if you invest a pretty little penny to attend an event then you need to put on your thinking hat on and make every moment count. As a matter of fact, at least for me, I end up going to events by myself because I like to explore new cities, meet new people and work on my networking skills. 

The problem is that sometime events can be a little like high school. For example, picture it like this...your the new girl in town with no friends, but you like to be adventures and go explore new places or events, but sometime  when you feel like you want the best experience, you end up feeling like you have to choose which group of people you see yourself starting a conversation. Dang, is it that hard!! It can be.. because while your thinking who do you want to approach. Your also left  observing how the crowd vibe is. In other words, which clicks have formed...who is who in the room.... superficials vs genuine … beauty gurus vs fashion... bloggers vs entrepreneurs.. Yup... the list can go on..and on.., but quite frankly put all that aside and just be you! 

Your best approach to networking is to genuinely be you and not fear approaching a person to start a conversation. You be surprise how easy it can be and how well you can start connecting with others. Most of all connect with brands and people you see yourself collaborating with and having long lasting relationships.

Cabo San Lucas

It's been a couple weeks of  home projects, work and life. We finally been living in our new house for a couple months, and have already experience some downfalls with certain things like a water pipe breaking, a 30 year old fence needing to be replace and fixing the garage. We have worked extra hard the last couple months to achieve a couple things in our list, but just in general, home projects can be stressful, kiaotic and expensive. So after trying to sort things out with our neighbors and what not, we both looked at each other and said it's time for a weekend gateaway.

Don't get me wrong, its not just like we just got up and were in Cabo the next day, but we did look at air flight and hotel deals that could give a good bang for our buck. And ladies, we found the best air flight deal through  Volaris  and  booked a 3 night stay with sandos finisterra hotel resort.

So, off we went with our packed luggage to the airport in Tijuana (which by the way needs a lot of progress).  After boarding our air flight, it only took two hours to arrive in Cabo. Once we landed we got our belongings and headed out to the taxi area where you have a choice of booking a private cab for $84 US dollars or split a cab with a group of passengers. We chose to share the cab with other passengers and this meant the cab driver will make several stops to drop of guest to their hotel site.  Which is not bad, but it can take a little time to get to your destination.

Upon arrival to the hotel we were both greeted with champagne and immediately introduce to activity deals. When the receptionist asked what we had in mind, we both said, to relax.. and of course enjoy the pool, beach, scenery, food and perhaps maybe walk into town, but no extra activities. She smiled, and said, " that sounds like a plan, enjoy your stay at Sandos!"

Summer Denim

Everyone seems to be ready for Summer except me! Well let's not be dramatic, but to be quite honest, I just having been consistent with my training. I am still trying to figure out my gym routine and just can't seem to get my mojo, but I know as long as I keep trying I will get my groove back.

Although I am not beach body ready, I still love to whip up a chic Summer look, so I name this look "Summer Denim" because it's time to look for your jeans short, jacket and a colorful top from your closet roll out feeling good.
