Organic Hair Mask

I stumbled upon a great organic hair mask that I thought would be fun to try out. I don’t find too many softening and shine boosting masks for hair very often.

For this recipe, I used 2 tablespoons of pure, organic coconut oil and 1 farm raised, organic egg. If you don’t have organic, don’t fret!! You can use whatever you have on hand.

I heated the coconut oil in the microwave until it was an oily consistency. Then I whisked in a whole egg. When completed, I used a tinting brush to apply the mixture all over my hair. You can use your hands to dip hair into the mixture, if you’d rather. Leave on up to 20 minuets for best results.

Tip: If you have very thick or long hair, add more ingredients for better coverage.

Try it and tell me what you think??

Did you know you can combine your favorite body lotion with with ordinary table salt to form an amazing exfoliate?

I used 12 pumps of my moisturizer (into a small, clean bowl) and poured in my salt until I had a gritty looking, cottage cheese looking texture. This made enough exfoliating cream for my arms and legs.

Be careful because it is a little drippy and we don’t wanna slip!!

Goodbye Kate Spade

In the coming weeks, there will be much speculation about Kate Spade’s alleged suicide, the note, her family she left behind, the note, if alcohol was involved. Her private life will be dumped out, picked over, and put on display for the entire world to see. A life reduced to gossip from Page 6 to TMZ.

However, I want to think about this woman who cruelty cut her own life short. Lot’s of people will ask why? She certainly seemed to lead a successful life. She had money, a Park Avenue home, a beautiful daughter, a husband by her side, and designs worn by everyone from royalty to the girl on the street. What kills me is her material worth still wasn’t enough to fill the empty, lonely, devastatingly depressed heart of this accomplished woman. Her internal pain was so much that could not live for one more day. Her world, her only choice, was to take her own life by hanging.

I only know, Kate Spade took her own life yesterday. I don’t know the names of all those who died by their own hand yesterday; those who had to end their pain and suffering. Those that couldn’t hang on for another day.

There will likely be several events in the coming weeks to honor Kate Spade’s life and contributions to fashion. And, there should be!! The world just lost an amazing woman.

But, who will be there to honor the lives of those lost to suicide yesterday and today. What will be their legacy?

If you or someone you love is hurting, please seek medical attention right away!! Don’t wait for tomorrow; it might not be there!!

Tanya’s Quick Tip

Expecting a special night with a special someone? The kind with candles, wine, and scarves over the lamps? (Go with a peach or rose color scarf. It casts the most flattering glow so you appear radiant.) The kind of night you want to glide on 1000tc sheets?

Don’t buy new sheets!! Just use CORNSTARCH powder!! (We don’t want to irritate the v-jay-jay.) Sprinkle your sheets with traditional powder or, if you want to splurge, go for the new spray powder.

I guarantee you’ll thank me later!!
