Hair Demo f/Shwaxx

It has been so cold lately, I am hoping that it doesn’t snow too much this weekend lol. I’m excited to be attending an event on Saturday and it will be the first event of the new year! I will be on my IG stories of course and have a recap on here.

Today I have another hair demo featuring products by Shwaxx. This is a Black Owned Business and new hair company to me. The company was founded in 2015 by Kevin Rodgers who is a licensed master barber in Atlanta, GA. The inspiration behind the company was for softening rough, course beards and it evolved from there.

I will be demoing two products in this tutorial and will be featuring another one possibly next week. Check out the video to see my results.

So that is it for my hair demo on Shwaxx. Please go support this business and you can check them out here:

Hope you have a great weekend and see you guys next week!

I’m so glad all my shows are back from Winter break lol! What are some of shows you are watching?

Black Owned Business Feature: PUR Home

I was so excited when I discovered a Black Owned company that sold household cleaning products. I honestly thought I would not be able to find one but it seems like there is more of an outlet for discovering Black Owned companies. I discovered PUR Home on Instagram and loved that their products used non toxic ingredients and eco friendly. 

I have the old packaging here

PUR Home was created by Angela and Michelle Richardson who’s mission is to create safe and natural household products for everyone to use. The ingredients used in all products are plant based and biodegradable. The company is also Leap Bunny Certified.

I have been on the hunt for more non toxic and friendly products to use around the house since I have a child who is in everything lol. I didn’t want to keep using harmful products around my home and it was hard finding those safe and effective products.  PUR Home had everything I was looking for and more. 

I also love that their containers are recycle friendly and their laundry detergent packing can be composted (not the one I have pictured above). I love that PUR Home now has an all in one concentrate that you can basically use to clean your entire house (I will be picking that up soon lol). 

Overall even if you aren’t a mom, you should have clean and environmentally friendly cleaning products in your home. I highly recommend everything from PUR Home. You can check them out right here:

So that is it for this month’s Black Owned Business Feature. What are some of your favorite household cleaning products? Also if there is a Black Owned Business I should check out, leave it in the comments. See you guys the week of the 16th.

Once again my son has this huge Christmas list full of toys lol. I wonder who is buying all these toys..

No Vlogmas for me this year. I don’t have too much going on and I’m just enjoying watching everyone else’s lol.


Black Owned Business Feature: Fro Butter

This weather has been something else lately. It was really cold then it was warm now its rainy. I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind lol. Today on the blog is another Black Owned Business feature.


I was introduced to Fro Butter in my Onyx Box last year and loved it. I also became an ambassador for 6 months which was pretty exciting. I got to learn more about the brand and discover some new staple hair products for not only myself but the guys in my life. Here is a video showing how I demo the African Black Soap that you can use to cleanse your hair and body. CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

Fro Butter was founded in 2012 by Susana Stewart who was looking for products that were safe and effective. I will admit that I didn’t always look at the ingredients on my hair products but I am more conscious now. I love that Fro Butter has natural and organic ingredients such as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed oil and so on. I know what I am putting on my hair and body and feel safe using these products on my son’s hair.

Fro Butter has everything from hair oils, shampoos, cold pressed soap bars to t shirts. I have two of my favorite products pictured above that I use on a regular basis. My husband and son also use these products in their hair and love it. I highly recommend just about everything Fro Butter has to offer and please go support this Black Owned Business.

Let me know some of your favorite hair products. See you guys tomorrow.

I honestly feel so much better with taking the pressure off of myself. I also unfollowed a lot of “influencers” who were actually influencing me in a negative way and making me think I had to strive to be like them. I feel like blogging for me will be fun again.

My son already has a long list of toys for Christmas thanks to the Target toy catalog.



Black Owned Business Feature: Garner’s Garden

I had such an amazing weekend! I attended the Fearless Conference and will have a recap on that next Tuesday. Today is another Black Owned Business Feature with Garner’s Garden.



I discovered this company watching a YouTube video by The Minority Report. If you don’t follow her or subscribed to her channel, you need to like now lol. She gives insight on so many products by Black Owned Businesses. She was comparing this company and another Black Owned company that sold oral care products as well. I was so interested in trying these products out and have been using them for the past couple of months.

I was a little scared at first to steer away from the traditional tooth paste and mouthwash that I have been using for years but I wanted to try something different. The ingredients in these oral care products are natural so you know what is in your mouthwash or toothpaste. There is no guessing what a certain ingredient is that you cannot pronounce. Garner’s Garden uses ingredients such as peppermint oil and activated charcoal in their products.

It made sense to purchase the Oral Care trio where you get the Oxy-Pulling Pre Brush Rinse, Natural Mouthwash and Tooth Powder for 22.97.  You start off with the Oxy-Pulling rinse. This is an alternative to the traditional oil pulling which helps draw out bacteria that causes oral diseases. After you using the rinse it is time to brush your teeth. I thought that I would use this like I would normally brush my teeth, use the tooth paste and rinse with the mouthwash. I was really surprised that both of these products are used to together. You would mix both the mouthwash and tooth powder together and brush for 2 minutes.


I will have a full in-depth review of these products but I am not going back to the regular toothpaste and mouth wash I was using before. I really love the results and have noticed a huge different in my oral care. This oral care system is just amazing and I highly recommend this. Garner’s Garden also has hair, body and facial products as well. You can check them out RIGHT HERE!!

Please go support this Black Owned Business and let me know what oral care products you are currently using. See you guys Thursday.
