Onion Juice to grow your hair


Here’s a great tutorial on how to grow your hair with onion juice by xoDVF who happens to have the most gorgeous hair in the world.  Obviously she’s doing something good so I will give the onion juice a try.


Herbal Hot Oil Treatment


I came across this wonderful tutorial by GreenBeautyChannel and thought imediately how wonderful this is for me because  I have been dealing with dryness. I can just imagine how nice the oil would smell after adding the essential oils.  This tutorial is extremely informative and very helpful.  Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

New Year Resolution!


I am wondering how many of you have made a resolution for the year 2013.  Frankly I don’t know why we do this to ourselves, we try to be good and stick with our resolution for a few months and then we just give up.  For myself I know it’s a lack of motivation, boredom, for example last year I got myself a gym membership.  As of January I started going religiously 3 times a week, I was doing really well until we went on vacation in the summer.  Then I just couldn’t motivate myself to go back to the gym.  I found excuses after excuses not to go.  I’m sure I am not alone in this…

I am very proud of myself for making the decision to become natural, it’s been 8 months and there hasn’t been a day when I was remotely tempted to go back.

This year I decided to become vegetarian, I have been thinking about it for a while and I am happy to say that I survived my first week.  My daughter asked me this morning if I miss eating meat, and my answer was no.  I will be posting recipes on my site very soon…

I am also doing this 52 week money challenge, I came across this challenge and thought to myself that is such a good way of saving money by starting with just $1.  Here is it, I challenge you to to this because by the end of the year you will end up with $1378.

Dry braidout


When viewing this video I thought I would share it with you because the result is very nice.  I usually do a twist out but never a braid out.  It is very simple, simply part your hair in sections, moisturize with your favourite moisturizer then braid.  The next morning apply a little oil to your fingers and unbraid.  Check out the tutorial by eleganttrendz.

Happy New Year!!!


“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
