Toxic Ingredients in the Products We Use Daily

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us have been affected by this terrible disease. So in honor of that this month my posts will be about Cancer Awareness. This post is about the usage of toxic ingredients that we use and depend on daily that can lead to cancer and other health concerns.

Hair care is a popular topic for many. Natural hair care is even more popular as it is a topic that is continuously growing every day.

Getting Past the Anger

Do not ignore wisdom. Or when you’re troubled and overwhelmed you will not have wisdom to get through it.” Anger is an emotion that makes you lose your consciousness of wisdom. It’s like a volcano erupting. When it erupts it has no boundaries, and just bursts out uncontrollably harming any and everything in its path. When an unexpected incident arises causing anger, and frustration what can you do to stop it from escalating? How can you regain control of your emotions, and avoid making mistakes that could have been avoided? These are the questions that we need to answer for...

Vaginal Health

Many females grow up thinking their body is taboo. Meaning they cannot discuss their anatomy or good vaginal health. As a result we grow up learning the wrong things to do, and do more harm than good to our body. I came across an article by a Gynecologists named Dr. Lauren Streicher of Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopause. While I was reading this article it made me realize so many practices that society leads us to believe about the human body are so untrue. From the way we cleanse ourselves to how we lubricate ourselves for sexual...

Portion Control

As a child, we were raised to finish our plate during meals. This task became embedded in our heads and equaled good behavior. No matter what the serving or meal consisted of the entire plate had to be finished. This small lesson learned in childhood has influenced our lives into adulthood.

Overeating can lead to so many health problems from obesity to mental health issues. According to statistical data...

This was my main reason for not planning, and attending a lot of picnics or outdoor events. However as I thought...

Sweating Hacks

I love the bright days of summer, and the longer days and shorter nights. The one thing I dislike about the summer is the heat and high humidity, which causes sweating and discomfort. Besides being uncomfortable it also makes some people who sweat at a higher rate self-conscious and frustrated. Feelings like that can put a real damper on your happiness, and prevent you from enjoying what the season has to offer. We know this is a part of life that we all have to deal with, but one thing is for certain we don’t have to let this issue...
