Products Review: MYHoneyChild, HairVeda and Qhemet Biologics

I bought these products a little while ago. From MYHoneyChild I got the Organic Shea Butter Hair Paste, the Coconut Papaya Hair Paste and the Afrikoko Silky Hair Lotion. All of which are great prodcuts and I would recommend them to anyone. From HairVeda I purchased the Whipped Herbal Green Tea Butter, the Vatika Frosting and the Whipped Cream-Ends Hydration moisturizer. Again all great products, my favorite one being the Green Tea Butter which smells so good that you would think that it is edible. Finally from Qhemet Biologics I obtained the Amla and Olive Heavy Cream ( my favorite), the Honey and Olive Hydrating Balm, the Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee and the Karkady Tea Replenishing Mist. They were part of the sample pack that I purchased. Again these products were awesome, one product that I would buy again is the Amla and Olive Heavy Cream and one that I would try is the Burdock Root Cream.

Anastasia Brows Stencils

I plan on getting this brow stencil to help me shape/create beautiful eyebrows. I did some research and found out this would be great for me. I've been planning for a long time to get it. Once I get it I will do a review.

It's ROWING Time!

When I go to the gym, I always find myself going straight to a particular machine such as the elliptical or treadmill because one, they are the most popular, second they seem easy, not complicated machines and third I’ve come to enjoy them. However, I’ve decided to try new pieces of equipment at the gym and learn what and how they can help me achieve my fitness goals. One such machine is the rowing machine. I was intrigued by it, saw others use it and decided to give it a try and to learn more about it. Verdict: I will definitely use this machine for my cardio work out! Researching about this machine I found these facts:

  • Rowing unites aerobics and resistive exercise slashing workout time in half. It triggers 86 percent of the muscles, stresses the heart and lungs, and overworks core muscle.
  • Rowing helps with fat loss, builds up curvy and sleek muscles, and builds stable core muscles that improves appearance and prevents back pain.
  • Rowing is a whole-body exercise that builds cardiovascular and muscular fitness. However, if done incorrectly, rowing can cause severe overuse injuries that can damage the back, hips, knees, elbows and shoulders.

So let’s give it a try and if you don’t know how to use this machine ask a trainer on duty(@ the gym) to show you.

I'm Back w/ Updates!

Hey ladies! Sorry I've been M.I.A, had some issues w/ my computer and camera. But everything is back to normal. I have updates for my hair: next month will mark my one year of continuously taking great care of my hair. I am very amazed and pleased with the result! I've also decided to transition to natural! My last touch up was in August 2008.
The pic at the bottom was sometimes in March 2008 and the one on top was Jan 2009, the the pic stops is where my longest strands stop. Sorry, I wore a dark color shirt; also I was blowdrying my hair when I took the pic.
Now I need to step up my make-up to go w/ my hair!
