#NewIn: all that hair care haul (ORS, The Body Shop, Shea Moisture and all that jazz)

Glorious morning all!

I pray this post finds you well. Okay, now tell me… am I the only one that goes to tkMaxx with no particular thing in mind and ends up with a whole bunch of stuff and wondering how I had lived without them all this time?

No? Just me? Okay… (all of y’all are liars if you said no idc idc!!)

It’s definitely is the case for me. More often than not, I would walk into tkmaxx looking for absolutely NOTHING and leave with a bag of essentials.. Please DO NOT ask. Continue reading “#NewIn: all that hair care haul (ORS, The Body Shop, Shea Moisture and all that jazz)”

Hello everyone!

It’s almost mid-February and I’m only finishing my January unboxing… I’m a lame blogger! sigh. Actually…. I started typing this post almost a month ago then there was the house renovation then the moving then so much more. Anyways… to the real post.

It’s been a year!! As I am typing this post, I realised that I have been subscribed to MEB for a year now. 12 boxes in and I’m still here because I enjoy what I get and I get to support a black owned business. #IssaWinWin

#StudyingSociety: “Would you date a woman with an Afro? “

#StudyingSociety: “Would you date a woman with an Afro? “

Seriously, social media is full of people asking stupid questions!! It makes me sad…

The other day, as I was scrolling through my Instagram’s explorer page, I saw this picture with 3 photos of the (same) (gorgeous) woman with her hair in a MASSIVE Afro. It came with the question: “would you date a woman with an Afro?”… yeah, SAME!
I want to rephrase the question for them: would you date a woman with her 4c hair in its natural state?

Unboxing @MyEbonyBox #4||May’s Edition

Unboxing @MyEbonyBox #4||May’s Edition

Hello there!

A new month, a new box! My box got here on Thursday with a new set of goodies.

Let us have a look at it all.

We still have the classy and classic black box.

1- Gold eyeliner – Rimmel London RRP £4

My kinda eyeliner to be honest. I used to love coloured eyeliners but for some reason we drifted apart. This right here is motivation. Watch out for the makeup look post…

I could not find it on Rimmel’s website but here is a link to it on amazon

2- Exfoliating cleanser– bea skin care RRP £29

This is the second part for the bea duo promised last month. i am now ready to use the konjac sponges. Also it is a full size product so yay!

3- Shea and coconut oil- Gro healthy RRP £4.49

I have grown fonder of this brand thanks to My Ebony Box, although buying any of their product is a hassle- especially for me living in Bournemouth *sigh*

Anyways, oil is alway needed for my natural hair. Since I am trying to grow it out, I’m going to work out on a good but simple regimen to see how much it helps.

4- QUEEN make up/ pencil bag– My Ebony Box RRP £6

😍😍👸🏾👑- That’s all I have to say!! #Highness

5- Scotch bonnet sauce sample- Tropical Paradise Preserves RRP £2

When I say this item, all I could think of was Beyoncé’s lyrics: “I’ve to hot sauce in my bag…”

Okay, I know she was not talking about literal hot sauce but in my case, it applies so we’re gonna roll with it :)-  Their FB page is here.  (That’s the first time I cannot eat the edible item whilst typing the unboxing post… sad)

6- Creamy whipped shea butter with precious oils- Aiko Naturals RRP £3.99

I used to do my own whipped shea butters so it is nice to go back to something that I know and that is practical and easy to use everyday.

7- 2 Girls artwork postcard- Nicholle Kobi 

More art!! I now can’t wait to move in my own house where I can really display all the beautiful melanin filled art that I have been receiving. I really wish I knew how to draw sometimes…

Also, I just checked her website and Nicholle is French so it’s like automatic love lol

The box’s content amounts to £49 that is almost the price I pay for THREE boxes. A big win if you ever ask me!! This is very profitable so if you are looking for a subscription box, I would definitely recommend this one.

I have some exciting news to share with you guys. I shall do it this week. If you follow me on snapchat (@mlle_mara) or instagram (@highnessempowershighness), you are aware of it all.

So follow me there not to miss out!!
