Sassy City Chicks in Miami

A few weeks ago, I attended Sassy City Chicks Miami. an event focused on fashion and beauty. I met up with the ladies from Wasabi Fashion Kult and Remix’d. Many local designers had tables featuring their creations. My favorites were : Dena Venable and Arm Candy.

The Sassy City Chicks swag bag was pretty amazing, it had a bunch of discount cards, a travel size bottle of John Frieda’s Dream Curls Spray and a full size tub of Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback treatment a curly hair care treatment for growing out naturally curly hair. I am in love with this stuff, it makes my hair soft, shiny and smelling delicious.

The event also featured Godiva creamy liqueurs, and Vitamin Water. Upstairs they had beauty vendors; they gave mani-pedis, make up sessions, and massages to guests.

In Times Square. We were exactly sure if we were going to make it out to Times Square, we had not really been doing any typical “tourist-y” things. We ended up walking right into it! This mini-photo shoot was fun, we had kept trying to get the Mtv logo in the background. The funniest part of this adventure was when I realized I had to pee, we ended up inside of the HUGE Toys R Us where we were entertained by the giant T-Rex and Legos for a good hour.

Healthy, Shiny. Sexy, Bouncy Hair

All of us dream of glowing and healthy hair but it is not very easy to have and maintain shining and healthy hair.
Too much or too little of a particular vitamin can contribute to thinning of the hair, brittleness, baldness, and hair and scalp dryness. However, the right amount of certain B vitamins, as well as vitamins A C, and E will give you the hair you’ve always wanted. Your hair will be more radiant, thicker and stronger.

Healthy hair and skin says a lot about how healthy you are, and it makes or breaks a first impression. A little something ladies might find interesting is that one of the primary features on a woman that men find attractive is a healthy, flowing head of hair. So take good care of yours; feed it the vitamins and nutrients that make your hair come alive.

B Vitamins – The B vitamins are probably the best vitamin sources for healthy hair. This includes pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and vitamin B12. All of these vitamins are water soluble, meaning they are easily absorbed by the body and are easily eliminated during urination. So you will need to constantly feed your body with these vitamins in order to capture and keep their effects for your hair’s vitality.

Other important vitamins and minerals include B complex, which is associated with energy production and building good hair and skin issues, folic acid, B12, and zinc.

When choosing hair products, I highly suggest going as natural as possible. I have traded all the popular stuff from the beauty store for the natural stuff at the health store.

Some Products I have tried and recommend:

Energizer Treatment Shampoo– This shampoo is amazing, I mix is with a couple drops of  Jojoba oil since it is “super-concentrated”. It penetrates deeply into the hair follicles to destroy harmful dirt and oil build-up and emulsify layers of sebum from the scalp. You can find it online at : www.folica,com

Jojoba Oil – read about the benefits of Jojoba Oil

This can all be found at any Vitamin/Health Store like a GNC or Vitamin Shoppe

Biotene Hair Emulsion and Biotene Conditioner

Vitamins for Hair Skin and Nails

Natural and Homemade Treatments:

Mayonaise Treatment

Avocado Hair Mask

a couple more natural treatments 

So Many Ways to Give Back This Season

The season is here! This time is to enjoy shopping, decorations, cold weather and enjoying time with your loved ones. But it is also important to remember those less fortunate than us. Giving back can be the most rewarding of all. Whether you do it with your friends, family or co-workers, it will make you, your team, your company, feel great.

There are so many ways to give. Here are some ideas on how you can give back:

  • Give Blood – Every year millions of people in the United States need a blood transfusion. One pint of blood can save up to three lives. If you are able to donate some blood. Visit The Red Cross.
  • Make a Donation to your Favorite Charity– add your favorite charity to your gift list. Another great idea is  giving a donation in someone’s name, this is a great gift .
  • Social NetworkingJust about everyone has a facebook page these days, including many charities.  Give a few minutes to a charity of your choice by visiting their facebook or twitter pages and suggesting them to become friends , or  linking them on you page. This is an easiest way to help spread awareness to your cause. 
  • Throw an Event for your Charity -Increase the size of your donation by throwing an event for your favorite charity. By giving a little time and a gathering a  good group of friends you can combine fun and doing good by holding an event in the charity’s honor. The gathering can be a party in which you encourage awareness or perhaps even require a small donation to the charity of your choice to attend the party. Here’s a little guide on how to plan a party for charity.
  • Adopt a Pet – So many animals are left homeless, if you are looking to get a new pet this holiday season, please consider visiting your local animal shelters. The best dog I ever had was a boxer who we found, it seemed like he knew and was grateful we had rescued him. Websites like Petfinder.com, are bring the adoption process online, so you can find the perfect pet from anywhere you may be.
  • Go Through Your Closet and Donate Old Clothes – The holiday is a perfect time for new beginnings. Clean out your closet and donate the clothes you no longer use to your local Salvation Army, Goodwill or a local homeless shelter.
  • Participate in a Food Drive – Food Drives help deliver food to families in need that live in your community. They are usually organized in school or at  work 
  •  Volunteer  your time– Combine your holiday time off with a little vacation and volunteering for a worth while cause. Many charities don’t have as much support as they need,  donating a day or two to a local charity chapter can make a big difference. Contact your local charity for volunteer opportunities.  I also suggest the Hands On Network.
  •  Toys for Tots– A toy drive done by the U.S Marines, which collects new, unwrapped toys for needy children in local communities.
