BEAUTY HEROES OCTOBER BOX | SMOOTH SKIN, BRIGHT SKIN, THE ULTIMATE CLEANSER

Beauty Heroes is the paragon of 'Use Less, Love More', a monthly subscription box that is quite prudently and thoughtfully selected for it's non-toxic, cruelty free and fruitful 'superpower' ingredients, with a price value that's more than mere reasonable. No samples to accumulate unused, only one brand per month to thoroughly acquaint yourself with and possibly fall in love. This month selection has supplemented itself into my daily use and will be continuously repurchased, it's that darn good.

#BEKIND | STAND FOR THOSE WHO ARE BULLIED


It's disconcerting how often kindness is lacked. It's more troubling how the act of hurting another being is becoming primal, so one can feel a mere and unfounded adequacy or misplaced control, to balance a life that is unsteady and turbulent. But with every way they tear another being down, they lose a piece of their humanity, till they become empty and void. Who will care then?

HOW TO | MANAGE CURLY HAIR NATURALLY


Managing curly hair is a whirlwind of trouble. You sleep with tamed hair and wake up with frizz and strands poking at very awkward angles. For years, I've worn my hair straight, when I'm a curly at heart. One time, I wore it curly to work and had my workers divided. Some hated it some loved it. Some thought I permed it. I had no idea how to manage it, so I started dabbling with natural hair oils and waxes, allowing my hair to dry naturally out of our sheer laziness. Since then, I've rarely straightened my hair, neither have I burnt my hair or my fingers.
