Hello, ​2018!!!

HELLO HELLO!

It’s awhile I know it’s been months since my last blog post. 2017 was a crappy year for me and I needed to take some time for myself to focus on me. I ended a crappy year and left all the bad vibes with it. 2017 really opened up my eyes and gave me a lot of growing up.Now in 2018, I started it with a vacay w/ my man to Vegas. We needed to start this year right & why not go to Vegas. LOL! Not to get married. CHILLLLL….

It was my 1st time ever in Vegas!! You see everything!!! (BOOBIES,CREEPS & DRINKS) I was in total tourist mode. I will be making a travel blog of pics and the tons of places we went to. We walked soooooo much we both had blisters on our feet. It was so good to get away from Chi-bera. Funny thing we came back from vacation just for us to get sick. Which landed me at the doctors last week. I was put on meds, inhaler & bed rest so I caught up on all my shows. Well, that’s a mini catch up. I have blogs coming Y’all!!

Don’t worry!!

Aztec Secret Indian Clay Mask!

HEY HEY, GUYS!

I know it’s been awhile trusted me, I’ve missed blogging myself. So let’s jump right in!

For months I’ve searched for this clay mask, I lost count how many times I called different stores asking if they had this product in a store. This past weekend I hit gold at Vitamin Shoppe, scooped one up.

Even the cashier as she was checking me out said she has a customer that bought 20 of these, I was shooked! When I got home I thought to myself “Dang, Should’ve gotten more of these”. LOL Soo yesterday I got the chance to use the mask, the recipe isn’t complicated at all.

Aztec Mask Recipe:

Three tablespoons of Aztec Secret Indian healing clay.

Three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

One plastic or glass bowl.

One wooden or plastic mixing spoon.

 Optional: You could add a couple drops tree oil or lavender oil if you want.

*Never use a metal spoon or bowl *

 

This was my set-up for the mask & after I applied the mask, I used a regular plastic container & plastic spoon. Once you’ve mixed in all your ingredients you’ll see some bubbling, make sure to mix gently don’t overwork the mixture. Once you’ve gotten most clumps and you have a good consistency you’re ready to apply to the face. I used the spoon to spread over my face, it’s normal to feel a little tingle & pulsating on my face its normal. It means the mask is doing what it’s supposed to be doing.

“Bentonite clay can contain calcium and sodium, though the more common type used for cosmetics and skin care is calcium bentonite. This type of clay is mined from many parts of the world. It’s often found in the USA, including the states of Wyoming, Montana, Texas, and Arizona. It’s also found in many countries around the world, including France, Egypt, India, etc.

Bentonite itself is a soft, porous and light colored rock. It’s made of minerals from the montmorillonite or smectite group, and colloidal silica. It was formed during the alteration of igneous materials or volcanic action. It’s ground up into powder form and then sold in containers. Since this clay contains basic minerals, it’s safe to use externally. The consumer can mix up their own clay mask recipes.”

How to Apply to Face:

Apply the clay mask to your face with your fingers.

You can use a cosmetic sponge or cotton ball if you wish.

Apply the face mask down your neckline if you have extra.

Take a break and let your clay mask sit for 20 to 30 minutes.

It’s normal to feel a tingling sensation on your skin as it dries.

The clay mask will contract as your face absorbs the trace minerals.

After the time is up, or before the clay mask completely dries up, you’ll want to wash it off with warm water and a soft washcloth.

It’s recommended that you use the Aztec clay mask once a week

It could be a little tricky to wash off is my only con, it takes awhile. Just rinse off with warm water and make circular motions on your face to break down the dried mask. Rinse well & pat down with a towel. I followed the mask with some toner water on a cotton ball to finish my face mask.

If you’re interested in purchasing the clay mask its available for purchase on Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe(In-Store & Online), Walmart (Online only). Cheapest place tho Vitamin Shoppe less than 9 dollars compared to other stores.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

Until Next Time

All about Nails!!

Who doesn’t love getting there nails done,especially after a stressful week or sometimes ladies we need to pamper ourselves. Getting my nails done or even doing my own relaxes me so much. It’s a time where you could unwind and let go. ( Me time) I usually do my own no chip, but once in awhile I love hitting up my nail tach for a fun manicure/pedicure. I’ve always loved getting fun, bold, artsy manicures. My nail tech and I come up with these fun ideas and just go with it.

This past month I recently found my old tech again, (LONGGG STORY) The important part is that I found her. Am I right? LOL! I wasn’t disappointed too! I never am Lynda & her staff are amazing. If you in the Chicago area and in need of a nail shop.

Head over to Colorbox Nails & Waxing, Lynda is the owner & you’ll be be in great hands. She’s a one stop shop!

Evil Eye Inspired Nails 

These were my nails last month, Lynda & I came up with a simple clean look. We did a light white & light pink polish on the ring fingers for the evil eye. Lynda did her last touch, she added rhinstones on each eye.

This month we went a bit different..

fullsizeoutput_2ea

We took it a bit artsy, with a beige color and then a dark plum w/fan brush for the effect. She added some sliver flakes for the wow effect, and she added rhinestones on the ring fingers.

OBSESSED!! TO THIS DAY THEY STILL LOOK GREAT!

I haven’t started to brain storm what we will do next. I get my inspiration from social media (IG mostly). I browse different nail artist’s and I’ll save stuff and then Lynda & I legit bounce off ideas and we make magic happen!!

Next time I go I’ll make sure to note what are the names of the polishes, to share with you all.

♥️LOVE YOURSELF ♥️

For years women have obsessed about being  thin or having the ” Perfect body”. Well y’all its 2017! Things have changed not every woman’s body is the same. Women’s bodies are beautiful in there own unique way. Everyone is different, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a flat stomach or you don’t have a thigh gap. Who cares! Embrace yourself and your  body, it’s taken me years to embrace my body and my curves. I always felt like the BIG girl in the room, I would always catch myself comparing myself to other women in the room.

Accept yourself and embrace those killer curves ya mama gave ya!

This is everything!!!

Who doesn’t love Chrissy Teigen, wife of the singer John Legend. They have the cutest daughter Luna. This past year Chrissy opened up about her struggles after giving birth to her daughter. A woman’s body changes so much during pregnancy, some snap back quick as hell and some don’t. Chrissy keeps it so real and she doesn’t give a crap. Every woman is different.

I personally struggle still with my body, I have curves & have stretch marks which I embrace. My boyfriend has taught me that he loves for me and loves my body for what it is. He always tells me to stop getting in my head about the way I look. I continue to struggle but I’ve gotten much better. One day at a time.No one is perfect!

Love yourself always ♥️
