Ever in London........ stop at Surrey Docks farm

'It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn'
- BC Forbes

Thats right, in London is a farm!!!!!! With pigs, sheep, goats, chicken and donkeys, vegetable plots,bees, an orchard, herb garden not to mention much much more. Surrey Docks Farm is a great place for the whole family to learn about farming, food production, workshops and animal care etc. It even has a fabulous cafe where you get great British meals ------ Sunday roasts, cakes, coffee's and home made ice creams!!!!!!! The farm relies on public donations as well as volunteers and the goodwill of local residents.

I had the opportunity to visit the farm, since its very close to where I was staying and I was very impressed to say the least. Firstly, what drew me to the place was the little kids helping out, screaming and running around (y'all know I taught kindergarten/ first grade right?) so any fun quirky place to take small children as well as educate them is always a place for me to visit. Hence why I like zoo's, parks, gardens, basically any fun educational experiences. But, I am getting off topic.

What makes this place super, is that it works with the community to make it a working farm, as well as sells farm produced meat, honey, plants as well as produce. Not only that, but this place holds workshops, training projects, Arts and crafts projects, a variety of music lessons is also taught, Yoga and Meditation is also offered, there is a classroom for school trips available. Best of all, for people interested in Horticulture but don't have green thumbs (like yours truly) or persons who don't have gardens to try their hand there and help out.

All in all, this is a wonderful place to visit and see. And make nice with the piggies and the pony!!!!!!! and Ducks.

London SE16 5 ET

Please note: If you would like to visit the Farm please check the website for visiting times. Also if in the area check the link for activities and anything of interest. I am sure you will never be at a loss of something to do.

Also, I am not affiliated with the Farm - I just find it very interesting, informative and a great concept and if just one person goes there because of me, then I have done my part in sharing. I love a community based project that educates and helps each other and that is also a great place for kids.

My product haul......Product junkie in the house!!!!!!!!!

' A person buying ordinary products in a supermarket is in touch with his deepest emotions'
- John Kenneth Galbraith

Hello ladies

London brought out the Junkie in me!!!!!!!!!!! I went ohhhhh, ahhhhhhh, wow, ohhhhhh and hhhhhaahhahah again and again,as I walked past the hair product aisle. So much to choose from, so little suitcase space. It was more of what can I pack into my suitcase and what do I dare leave behind? I swear I would gladly have left everything and just carried products. It was that serious. Onto what I got.......

My London Haul

From Aussie I got - Miracle hair insurance --- leave in conditioner
Dual Personality -----Anti Frizz & Conditioning milk
3 minute miracle re-constructor ------ deep conditioner
From Herbal Essences I got - Hello Hydration ------ shampoo and a small conditioner
Beautiful Ends ------Split end protection cream (leave in)

Tesco - Smooth Conditioner -----Jojoba & Balsam
Extracts ------ Coconut conditioner
A Denman brush - D14 small (couldn't find a bigger one, but am grateful for what I got)
and a Hot pink paddle brush.

All this, including, my clothes, shoes, stuff for the fam and everything I had already packed resulted in my suitcase having a Red Airport sticker on it boldly written HEAVY!!!!!!!!! Boy was I in a panic on that flight thinking- They must not tell me to pay for no extra kilo's coz,That is most def not in the Financial Year 2011/2012 Budget. Hell to the NAW!!!!!!!! But it was all good. My bag was just heavy thats all. I had please let me be written all over my face.

So, since I still have my other products to get through, these will be safely packed away until needed or I get itchy fingers. No, but on the Real, it was more of the fact that I can't seem to find these particular products here, so I bought them to use and see how they go with my hair. I really wanted to try them out you know.

So watch out for reviews and gorgeous hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blessings, Joy and Getting my product fix.

St. James Park, London

'Flowers are the Sweetest things God ever made, but forgot to put a soul into'
-Henry Beecher

Just playing catch up with my London pictures.

Here are some pictures I took of St. James park. I love parks and gardens (and I have a green thumb ;-) ) even though I constantly need tissues just to get me through a walk. But boy do I love gardens......nothing better than a picnic under some trees, with some sippy sippy, some sandwiches, and a slice of cheese cake with ice cream thrown in. And a good book. And of course great company. Or just a really really good book. Onto the pictures.......

its a Squirrel!!!!!!!
I can totally see myself under this tree with a good book......

It looks like the gardens in and around Stockholm will be fantastic as well. So look out for more Gardens, Flowers, Forests, Lakes and overall Natural Gorgeousness!!!!!!!

Peace, Blessings and Flowers.

Spring Clothing Haul

'The truly fashionable are beyond fashion'
Cecil Beaton

Good morning dears
Ladies, I did mention that I was getting my self into shape right? Well, Your's truly went shopping and I got my some cute stuff to rock during Spring and Summer. Here are some stuff I bought.

My new black light cardigan
My new Favorite dress. Its stretchy at the top and shiny, satiny at the bottom. Ohhh la la indeed.
back of the dress
some bling bling for my finger
the smaller of the two is a ring and the larger a bracelet.

This is a strapless greenish dress.

this is a t-shirt dress that for me needs leggings

another t-shirt dress that needs leggings or shorts
I am trying to inject some colour into my wardrobe and specifically move away from Black. Ohhhhhh I saw a sign that read ' White is the New Black'.......... don't know bout that.

My sister and sign.

Also, let me just say little shopping haul was on the inexpensive side. Yep ladies, no shame in my game. I buy from the Red Banner side.......until I win that Lotto, then its on!!!!!!!!!!

Peace, Blessings and Color

My first heels - 10 years later.

'Cinderella is proof, that a pair of shoes can change your life'
- Don't Know

Hi ladies

Lets just get to the goodness, shall we? I bought me some heels y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know, I know, it will be a while before I will wear them, but they just looked so gorgeous and ummmm cheap. These babies were on SALE!!!!!!!!!! I mean 70% off, I mean I found them under a BIG RED Banner that had Sale and my name written all over it (Fine if the store knew my name it would have been on the banner). Plus they were my size (okay technically they are a little itsty bitsy big, who knew my small size in Sweden is slightly bigger in the UK but I can put some stuffing into them) did I mention I bought heels?!!!!!!! Lets not sweat the small details (lol). So ummm to my pretty little new babies.

I have added these babies to my other shoes and they are all getting along very well. I told you guys, I am expanding my shoe collection. I cannot wait until the day I rock these shoes, ohhhhhh I am gonna be FIERCE!!!!!!!!! I got my catwalk pose going on already. I am convinced these heels will stop traffic, Cars will stop and people will stop whatever they are doing just get a glimpse of my strutting my stuff in my new shoes. Just know, when Traffic comes to a halt in Stockholm, it is because I wore these shoes. Don't Say I didn't warn you.

In case you are wondering - Yes these are my first high heels after deciding to wear normal, proper, non-built up shoe. I did have a pair built up when I was in High School for my prom/matric and that was 10 years ago. I begged and begged my doctor to allow me and I had to get a specific kind that could be cut up and built on. So this is a momentous occasion for your's truly.

Love, Blessings and Shoes

ohhhhhhh Spring is in the air. Playing catch up.

'Art is not living. it is the use of living'.
Audre Lorde

Hello dears

So Spring has finally began to make its appearance and boy is in gorgeous in Stockholm. And can I just yell out: I made it threw a Swedish winter y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone kept saying how hard the winter will be, how cold, how awful blah blah blah. But I made it through and I only had the flu once!!!!!!!!!! So yep, me is happy. Honestly it wasn't so bad, only thing that made it worse than it really was was the fact that I come straight from Abuja to here and we only had like 2 weeks of very late Autumn then it began to get dark and cold. But apart from that, it was bearable. Heck, I lived in Austria for 7 years, so cold weathers I can handle.

So what's been happening with moi - you may be asking. Well, been keeping a somewhat low profile, working on getting my CV's out (need new sources of income), putting my paperwork together (I have assignments and papers due towards the end of the year and I like to begin my preparations early on), working out, etc. Lets break this down..... in no particular order

1) Job front - Looking, praying and staying positive.
2) Weight front - working out, eating small meals a day.
3) Hobbies - more photography, writing poetry again, working on short stories
4) Love front - single but not looking- hopefully he is lol.
5) Hair front - have my hair in a protective style for this week.
6) University front - have applied to a number of places, just waiting on the outcome. (in case you are wondering, I am studying via correspondence and long distance is not doing it for me any more). Am working on finishing my degree.

Posts coming up (this week and next):
Everyone should know about......
Ever in .............
My three camera's aka little guys in my life.
London product haul
Spring clothing haul
My first heels
Leg update
Spring pictures of Stockholm
Stockholm zoo and bonfire (big event that is happening this weekend)

Ohhhhhhh looks like I am gonna be a busy bee huh?

Peace, Blessings and getting ready for Spring

London part 2 - pictures will be up soon

'By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show'.
Samuel Johnson


That quotes is totally how I feel about London.

Not much to tell really. I walked around a lot. After sorting out a week ticket getting around wasn't hard but I gather thats because I am use to public transport since living in Vienna. I would think that for someone who isn't use to it, then it would be a hassle and a half. Also, most people seem very helpful when seeing if you are in need of assistance. Apart from that, it was systems go for me. I and my friend walked everywhere, took in all the sights and sounds. I honestly had no real idea of London, just that it was busy and everyone speaks English, and of course the usual - Royal family, 007, Shakespeare - whose work I love and did a final research paper in high school on Macbeth (got an A+ for that one - (I did two papers - Macbeth and Lord of the Flies, both Brilliant books) ), lager, pies, pub crawling - hahhahahahahhaha (didn't really do that in London - but have in Vienna), English men (dated a few - so I know what I need to know about them - Love the accents), Notting Hill, Topshop, rainy days, River Thames, double decker buses etc etc. So visiting London was totally fantastic. I think I love going to a place and not have any real idea of it, that way its all a surprise for me. No expectations you know. Find out for my self how it really is. Make my own mind up. You get my drift. And lets just is very Happy.

Note: Blogger is still giving me problems trying to upload my pictures. But I ain't no quitter. I am like the little engine that could. I keep going and going and going. Will keep trying to upload.

Peace, Blessings and Afternoon tea

London Pictures Part 1 - Bruno's debut

'You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford'
Samuel Johnson

Hi all,

I know, I know, I have been very bad. And I am so sorry, but I was having such a great time catching up with my friend and exploring London. I am now back in Stockholm and waiting for my friend to come here. I will show her a bit of Stockholm in return for a great London trip.

First things first. You are probably asking yourself ....who is Bruno? See, after Nico, I had Rocco, but then my mom got herself another camera after giving Rocco to me. But she prefers Rocco, and gave me another new one. Which I have named Bruno, its all very simple. Bruno was a gem. I love him. He is just perfect he did so good on his first trip, I am so proud of my little guy. Note to self- do a post on all three at some point - Nico, Rocco and Bruno. There is a female camera also - Casey. But she belongs to my sister. Onto London!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh, London is fabulous, people!!!!!!!! So much to see, hear, eat, smell. I just loved it. Even though I was there for only a short time, it was certainly an amazing trip!!!!!!!!!! I saw Buckingham palace, Downing street - which was closed off to the public, London Bridge, St James Park, Harrods - didn't go in though - That was not in the Financial Year budget believe me. I saw the changing of the guards - timed my outing very well indeed to catch that. What else, Oxford street etc I ate, steak and kidney pies (I had tooooooo), I had hummus (I can get that here too), sushi (ditto for the sushi as well) and more Fish and chips - not so much, not really into fish, but the best bit- I found a South African store so I goit me some Hunter's gold, Savannah's, Nik naks, Fizzers and Ouma rusks. Even you dont know what I am on about check this post.

All in all, my trip was a success. My friend was happy, it was a surprise birthday present visit that her sister and I planned for weeks. And it was great catching up with her.

Onto pictures.
Believe it or not........ Love it.

these are floating balls in a pool of water, they looked so cool. 10 years ago, I would have been in that.......ok 3 years ago
Statue in the round about in front of Buckingham palace - I think that's Queen Victoria - but I could be wrong.
War memorial at St James Park
Its suppose to be a soccer player with balls - I don't see it.
Buckingham Palace at the back and statue in the front.
O2 arena - where most concerts are held.
I didn't want to stand any closer to the big horse.
This is my favourite one - honestly cant tell you more about it. But I know its on the way to Downing street behind the houses of Parliament.
I had to get a shot of one.

So more pictures, more London posts including hair products I bought, hair stories, St James Park - that deserves a post by its self. My London shopping haul and my first pair of high heels. Yes, I bought me some heels in London!!!!!!!!! Ohhhhh and a blog post about a farm in London........ohhhhh so much to blog about ;-)

Peace, Love and Travel

I am in London!!!!!!!

'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life' Samuel Johnson

Hello Darlings, I am in London!!!!!!!!!!!

And I love it. I came to visit my friend of 17 years (we have been friends since primary school) and I (and her sister) figured I should come down to visit her and surprise her for her 28th birthday. Gotta say, when you have friends like her, you have a friend for life. She and a few other ladies know me very well. Sometimes, they know me better than I know my self. Apart from that, will take lots of pictures, doing tons of tours during the next few days, so look forward to that. And yes This London trip was in the 2011/2012 Financial year budget. See I how I do?

I told you, it was going to be a wonderful surprise. Ohhhhhh, saw so many natural sisters whilst here. Need to find out what they use and where they go. Must. Investigate.

Love, Blessings and London Town

Two strand twists with curls.

Hair has always been important'
Diana Ross

More catch ups ( picture uploads are better and faster than before!!!!!!!!!!)

So, two nights before my London trip I decided to revisit the two strand twist and do it as a protective style for the next week(2). I firstly washed my hair with Jojoba oil and honey shampoo from Boots then afterwards I did a deep conditioner treatment. I used Aussie Moist 3 minute Miracle - Frizz Remedy (was I not the happiest person in the world, when I saw it in the store?!!!!!! I honestly didn't even care about the 2011/2012 Financial Year budget)

I then rinsed that out and used a Sulfate free conditioner (a sample that I bought) and oiled my hair with Shea butter, Aloe Vera gel, Argan oil and Jojoba oil. Then I got to twisting. I made small twists and then I cut up straws and added those at the ends. I fastened them with bobby pins (hair pins). Then it was bedtime. I slept with a scarf around my head and when I woke up, I realized that my hair was flat against my head. But that was no biggie, I just fluffed with my hands. And Presto. Twists and Curls.

Below are pictures.

(don't mind the dress, its my 'work my hair' old dress. Its cute, its says in the front ' sorry if I looked interested, I'm not '. Have had it since I was 14. Just goes to show you, my body needs to grow into womenhood, I mean for real, I can still fit into clothes I wore when I was a teenager and I am quickly coming off the calender.......)

Products I used.
I have a black head band in my hair.

The plan was to keep the style in for the duration of my trip however that didn't work out and on day 2 in London, I rocked a wash 'n go. I think it had more to do with the weather, than anything else. Or perhaps its just me, my hair cant seem to last more than 4 days in twists.

Overall I loved it and will give it a third go. Who knows maybe third time lucky?!!!!!!!

Peace, Blessings and Twists

ohhh, what am I up to?

'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover'
Mark Twain

Hi everyone,
I know, I have been quite quiet this week, but its only because I am still trying to work on getting my pictures back on Blogger and also planning a little something special for myself and Rocco.

Don't worry all will be revealed soon ;-)

Apart from that, all is well on the hair front. I am loving the shiny, fullness of my hair as well as the curliness - its so much more curlier than before. I still haven't decided exactly what protective style I will have it in, but for now, its in a bun.

So watch out for next week's Fabulous postings. I can hardly wait. And I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to post pictures as well.

Peace, Blessings and Sweet Surprises

My Henna (Indigo) process with pictures

There is no such thing as a "self-made" man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.

- George Matthew Adams

Hi everyone

Back to the Henna (Indigo) edition (will post pictures soon - am still trying!!!!)

So, after I made my mixture and added honey, I set about combing my hair and splitting it into fours (two parts at the back and two parts in front) with my clips and claws. I then started at the back and worked my way to the front of my head. The application process it self was OK, I went line by line with my comb making sure I covered my whole head, however it was Messy (the floor, sink and my clothes). I just decided to clean and wipe as I went along (working at a kindergarten trains you for this), I also did this along my hairline, ears and neck. Then I cling filmed/saran wrapped my head and then covered that with my shower cap. I went about my way, watched YouTube Videos and did some reading, 4 and half hours later I was ready to hit the shower.

After I removed the shower cap and cling film/saran wrap, it looked like my hair was loc'd (which I secretly loved) I was very worried that it was hard but in actual fact, it was extremely soft to touch and I could manage it quite well. So after getting under the shower, I just rinsed away. I continued to rinse and rinse. All the while noticing how soft and much more thicker my hair was - this is also may have been due to the fact that I hadn't had my 'natural' hair in over more than a week (since my roller set and flat iron). But boy was it heavy and thick. I had read that when 'washing' out the Henna, its best to rather use conditioner and do a proper wash with shampoo in a few days. Which is what I opted to do. It cant hurt right? So I used a lot of conditioner and continued to wash my head until the water ran clear (no longer black/dark green).

When I was done, I just put my hair in a bun and called it a night.

Sorry, for the bad quality

When I was done, I just put my hair in a bun and called it a night.

So.......Am I sold?
Yes and No.
No because, I didn't use Henna powder and Indigo - I took a shortcut and just used Indigo.
Yes, because I loved how soft and thick my hair was under the shower. Also, I loved how my curls came alive after coming from under the shower (I was a bit worried since it looks like I may have 2 or three different textures - curly, straight and wavy). Which is strange since I didn't transition and I started my hair journey bald. I just figured I would have all over just the same, but hey thats the way, my head of hair works. I will further investigate this.

Overall, I like what I came away with. My hair is now 3 days post Indigo and I have to wash it with shampoo (will do so on day 4- I have a small sample of Sulfate free shampoo that I want to try out) and then I can really assess it, but thus far, I can tell you, its soft, thick and blacker (much darker), hopefully there will be some sun so I can have a really good look.

I will do the process again but next time with Henna powder and Indigo - I like my dark hair and have no reason to change it lighter - for now anyways. Never know, tomorrow, I may decide to rock a blond look ;-)

So let me know if there are any questions.

Peace, Love and hair assessments.

ummmmm, now what?

It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.

I am trying to upload my pictures but all I get is this?

Can anyone help? I have gone to the help site and have done as instructed but to no avail.

Peace, Blessings and Getting everything sorted.

Rename and Henna (Indigo) part 1

To fill the hour -- that is happiness.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi everyone (took me 2 days to post - What a Monday!!!! - Will post pictures as soon as I can)

So lets get to it. I was all Henna'd up on Sunday and decided to do a three part post about. My recipe, the goop'd up process and Day 4. This gives me a chance to really get to examine, if you will, my hair.

Firstly, let us say goodbye to Nico. He didn't make it, I am heart broken about it, but such is life. My mom was gracious enough to give me her camera which I have decided to rename from Rocky to Rocco. I like the way it sounds .....RRRRRRROOOCCCCO. Anyway, at this time, Nico is laying safely away, until I figure out what to do with him, perhaps during the summer, I can look at having him fixed.

Onto the Henna (Indigo).

Please note:

The Henna that I bought was written ' Black Henna' after consulting the sales lady, she assured me that what I had was Indigo (with no chemicals or PPD) and after reading up on Henna for hair I also came to the same conclusion. Therefore I decided not to let it release dye over night, I choose instead for a few hours. However the next time, I choose to Henna my hair, I will buy both normal Henna powder and Indigo power and do the whole mixing overnight process.

I did quite a lot of reading (blogs, forums and Henna for Hair) and watching YouTube videos and I came too a few conclusions.

1) It doesn't really matter if your hair is dry or wet (I honestly think its a personal preference)

2) Find a good recipe and tweak it to your liking. I found a basic one with just water, Amla oil and honey (I didn't have chamomile tea - I just choose to add more oils).

3) It's time consuming. Plan well, have enough time.

4) Clean up, clean up, clean up. Clean up as you go along, don't think to clean up afterwards, that wont work.

5) Don't wear colorful clothing. Wear old clothes that you wont mind getting dirty. Wear Black.

What I used was:

100 gr Black Henna (Indigo)

Amla oil

Jojoba oil

Argan oil

Honey (which I mixed in only when I was ready to use my mixture)

Gloves (I should have kept them on when I was washing my hair, now I got black nails)

boiled water (2 mugs but I ended up only using one)

bowl, wooden spoon (couldn't find a plastic one - as long as its not metal its fine)

wide tooth comb, hair claws, hair clips and shower cap.

I mixed:

Henna (Indigo), 2 tablespoons of Amla oil, 15 drops of Jojoba oil, 20 drops of Argan oil and gradually added water until I got to a smooth mashed potato consistency. Then I cling film/saran wrapped it for 3 hours and went about my day. The reason I used so many oils was because, since I was anyways, going to wrap my head (cling film and shower cap for a few hours) I would 'deep condition' using Henna (Indigo) and everything else. You know, really work the oils into my hair follicles and whatnot.

I read that if you leave the Henna either over night or for a few hours this process releases the dye which was why, I wrapped it and just left it. After 3 hours it was a dark green, blue/black color which was what I was after. Just before I applied it, I added 2 Tablespoons of Honey (this is apparently makes it easy to wash out)

Also, I choose to Henna (Indigo) my hair dry for the simple fact that I had flat ironed and roller set a week prior and I really just didn't want to wet it again and then re wet after the Henna(Indigo) was on top of it. I read that it doesn't make a difference weather its dry or wet. Also since I am going to Henna(Indigo) again, I figured the next time, I could do it on wet hair (that way, I see for myself which way works best or if it really doesn't matter) I like to test things out for myself sometimes. As for dry hair, I found that much better, I could tell which parts were Henna'd up and which weren't.

Please do research on Henna and also when buying anything, please please please ask what exactly you are buying, whats in it, whats it made from etc. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting/buying. The reason why I noted it like so ---- Henna (Indigo)----- is because when I next do it, I will use both Henna powder and Indigo powder, whereas here, I only used one kind, Indigo powder.

Look out for part 2.

Blessings, Peace and Rock on Rocco

Retail Therapy...... in my own way.

Buying something on sale is a very special feeling. In fact, the less I pay for something, the more worth it is to me. I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it. I could spill something on it and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?'
Rita Rudner

Hiya everyone,

So the same day that Nico was acting up I decided to pamper myself and do some girly shopping. Now, some girls, like shoes (I do too) some girls like Chocolates (once a month when my Aunt comes to visit), some girls like makeup, bags, clothes ______________ (insert what does it for you) and some girls are like me, they like candles. Actually, I like everything, but really what I Love above all else are postcards, old poetry books and journals (I am most happiest reading and writing). ohhhh photography and traveling......and cheesecake.
However today's post isn't about that. Today is about me being upset with Nico and having to buy things which were not in the 2011/2012 Financial Year Budget. Believe me, Nico is in Big Trouble.

Here are my goodies.
Head massage thingie - I need it for the stress and also to stimulate growth. I read that some place......Will go nicely with all the oils I am using.
two candle holders
Homemade apple pie and cinnamon scented candles
Liquorice and Grapefruit scented candles
Bubblegum and White Jasmine scented candles
Lemon-grass and White Vanilla scented candles
Shower cap - for a true beauty. I gather they mean me?
Hot Chocolate - 100% real Belgian Chocolate (this will probably get a post all by itself)
So, I needed to get all these things to calm myself and figure out what I was gonna do. It was either all this or get Vodka. This was cheaper. Also, very soon, I will post about the 2011/2012 Financial Year Budget. That way, everyone - you, me and my hating bank account are all on the same page.

Just a quick note:

I started taking my Spirulina tablets this morning (its says on the packet for the first week take 2-4 per day, so I am following what it says on the instructions on the packet), I did my Pilates (stretching my leg and doing some crunches, some squats and worked on my abs etc) after my shower I added some Argan oil and Aloe Vera gel to my body lotion (its not really a lotion - its a mixture of coconut oil and shea butter) and applied that to my skin- all over from face to my tippy toes. Later today I plan on soaking my hands in some Argan and lemon juice + water and applying a little to my nails and cuticles, as for my hair (it was feeling a bit dry), so I just massaged some Argan oil + Jojoba oil to my scalp, edges and ends, I want to Henna on Sunday. So that's me done. Will keep you posted on how things progress during this month.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!

Peace, Blessings and Indulgence
