2018 is here and above anything else I am grateful to be alive! A new year is not  very significant change. Really its just another day and nothing much changes except the date. It can however represent a new start or reset and I for one am using the opportunity to really align my goals and refocus on things I want to achieve in the short, medium and long-term. I have five major changes that I want to make in 2018 and they form the basis of the direction I want my life to take going forward.

Review of the Ettenio Moisture Infusion Deep Penetration Conditioner- Love it or Leave It?

Hi guys! Today is an exciting day for me because I have finally found a deep conditioner that is worth sharing with you all.Over the past 4 months I have been testing out different conditioners in my quest to find my holy grail moisturising deep conditioner for my natural hair.

So far I have tried 4 different ones and this is the only one I feel like I can recommend. I have deliberately been choosing ones that are  affordable but had good ingredients because you know a girl ain’t rich and I’m not trying to be hungry with a head full of beautiful curls.  None of what I tried  had me wowed and so I decided I needed to take the plunge and step up to a bit more of an expensive product with hopes that it would do me justice.

But for every one of these posts there are a whole host of followers in the comments complaining about bad hair days and bemoaning the fact that their hair is not turning out like that. As I go about my day almost everyday I’m asked multiple times whether in person or online : “How did you get your hair like that?”; Followed by “how can I get mine to look like that?” After directing them to my blog or Youtube channel I usually ask a few questions to see what they are doing wrong and offer some specific solutions.

Holywell Recreational Park-Coolest Spot to Relax and Rejuvinate in Kingston, Jamaica

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Monday was National Hero’s day here in Jamaica a national holiday marked to celebrate the lives, sacrifices and legacies of our National Heroes and Heroine. I had been home all weekend and just couldn’t fathom the thought of lying around for a third day so my fiance and I decided to take a trip to Holywell Recreational Park. This would be our second time going there so we had a good idea what to expect and boy were we looking forward to it. After being in the city commuting to work day in day out and working in an office the idea of being out in nature was irresistible.

 

Holywell Park is a beautiful nature park nestled in the Blue and Johncrow Mountains above Kingston.  Aside from the breathtaking views of Kingston it offers crisp cool fresh air, misty mountain trails that wind their way along the mountain range revealing new treasures of exotic flora and fauna at every turn and enough serenity to have you feeling rejuvinated and refreshed.
