I wanted to highlight another beautiful woman that holds the spirit of empowerment and confidence. Meet Alina, 20, ”I like to be curvy. I like to workout to enhance my naturally curvy self. So weird how I used to associate being super thin with being feminine”Go Girl!! Your right women are naturally beautiful and we should work with our natural selves!!
Results of my flat twist out with perm rods. Loved the results!! The products I used are Argan oil gel, SheaMoisture curl enhancing smoothie, and Long Grey Perm Rods 3/8” size.
This is a link that describes a flat twist out method:
Quick and simple dark chocolate peanut butter cups. When I am craving something sweet I make this and have a simple sweet mostly natural snack in about 20 minutes.
Natural Peanut Butter
Dark Chocolate Chips 50% Cocao or higher
Agave Nectar light
* Cocao is not the same as Cocoa. Cocao has not been processed and still contains most of its health benefits and antioxidants.
* Light agave nectar is not just light in calories it is also light because it can blend easily with other products for the desired sweetening affect without changing the products flavor. In other words there is no after taste like you would find in honey.
In a small sauce pan pour about ¼ cup of chocolate chips and let it begin to melt on low.
Once chocolate chips have begun to melt add about one large mixing spoon full of peanut butter and mix together.
Add agave nectar to taste for desired sweetness.
With a spatula add to baking cups.
Put in freezer for about 20 minutes

Since I started my journey in December I am 32 pounds lighter! I am using my Nutribullet faithfully in the morning. I have to give credit to finding the perfect snacks for me when I am hungry. You ready??
One 15-ounce can chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
Fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
1/4 cup tahini
4 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Put all ingredients in a food processor and you have made a snack that is DESLISH!
I like to add some green onion and peppers sometimes for variation.
I like to dip raw vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, and celery in my hummus for a quick nutritious snack.
2. Air popped popcorn
Purchase an air popper it is a saving grace when you are hungry. Benefits include being able to control how much butter and salt is in the popcorn and you know there is no additives or chemical because you made it yourself.
This is the one I use:
1/4 cup olive oil or coconut oil
2 large squeezes of honey
Mix all ingredients together.
* Wash ALL the product out of your hair before you use this mask.
* Leave in for about 20 -30 minutes and then rinse out.
* Condition hair with product of choice.
* Style as Usual
Benefits include brining lifeless curls back to life, strengthening hair, giving hair AMAZING shine!!
I think I'll give olive oil another try. I switchef to grapeseed but it doesn't seem to strengthen my hair.
I love olive oil too. I have tried grapeseed but it didn’t hydrate my hair as well. Grapeseed was better for my skin. I use it in the bathtub often. I also love to mix coconut and olive oil together. This seems to be the best combo for me. Let me know how it works for you.
