Why You Should Never Underestimate the Power of an Avocado #NationalAvocadoDay

I’ve been using avocados as a natural hair care treatment for years but I couldn’t believe all the knowledge that I've learned today. Avocados can be ultimately beneficial for your hair, skin, and health. And to think, I only thought apples were the bomb dot com for our health. No offense apples, but avocados are kinda underrated. Here’s why.
Avocados can promote healthy hair growth. When I first learned that you can put avocados in your hair, I didn’t hesitate before I made my first hair mask. You can use one avocado alone or you can add anything to the hair mask, such as a banana, coconut milk, coconut oil, raw honey, or other. Blend it all together, wear the mask for 15 minutes (or more) and then wash it off.
Avocados can hydrate dry hair. It’s always important to keep your hair moisturized and wearing an avocado hair mask for a few minutes can get the job done. Your hair will feel softer and hydrated within seconds.
Avocados are great for cleansing your hair. Believe it or not, but avocados can cleanse your hair just like shampoo would (from experience.) It can loosen up any dirt that is on your scalp and wash it right out of your hair. I would recommend that you blend it up and make it a smooth texture by adding coconut oil, coconut milk, aloe vera gel or other (but it works best as a hair mask because your hair can soak up all the nutrition.
Avocados can make your hair smell really nice. If you adore the natural aroma of an avocado, then you won’t mind it giving your hair a fresh fragrance after you’ve cleaned it with a hair mask.
Avocados make a great snack. Add avocado to some toast and you’ve got a perfect little snack.
You can create a sweet avocados smoothie. I love adding some natural juice, frozen berries and one avocado to my smoothie because it’s so delicious like dessert.
Avocados can prevent dandruff. No flaky, irritated and itchy scalp here.
Avocados can make your hair grow healthy and strong. It’s the Beyonce of fruit because before you know it, your hair will become flawless.
Avocados can prevent hair loss. You can receive less breakage and fuller hair because avocados are magical.
Avocados can give your hair the protection it needs. Sometimes when the weather changes, it can affect our hair but avocados can prevent some damages. For instance, during the wintertime, my hair can get so cold, it’ll cause damage but avocados promised me that it’ll give my hair the hydration it needs.
Avocados heal damaged hair. True dat...
Avocados have anti-aging benefits. You can wear avocados as a face mask which can give your skin a boost of hydration.
Avocados can nourish your skin. After wearing a face mask made of avocados, you might notice how clean, soft and smooth your skin is. It’s important to use a face mask at least once a week to give your pores a deep cleanse and avocados will be the perfect start.
Avocados can make you a happy person. Studies have stated that eating avocados can be a natural de-stressor.
Avocados can be great for your brain. From some research, I’ve learned that avocados can be used to improve your memory. So why not add it to your list of study snacks?
Avocados can be a natural vitamin to help your nails grow healthy. Eat more avocados for a healthy manicure.
Avocados can help you with digestion. Avocados have the power to make you feel beautiful from the inside and out because it’s healthy for your body. It has a natural fiber that can make your body feel grateful to have a healthy digestion.
Avocados can improve your eyesight. As I unknowingly irritated my older brother as a child, copying the cartoons when I bit into a carrot saying, “What’s up doc,” I knew that carrots can improve your eyesight. Well, technically I thought I would be able to see in the dark because my imagination ran wild when I was told this. Now I know that it’s not just carrots that can improve your eyesight, avocados can too.

Have a happy avocado day!!

Love always,

Morrocco Method Raw Vegan Shampoo

I remember a young YouTuber shared on her video, that natural hair is naturally dry but this is not really true from my experience. What some people don't know is that chemical-based shampoos can strip your hair from its natural oils which can cause your hair to dry out. When you began to use the right products that your hair needs, dry hair would not be anything you need to worry about.

In 2015, I notice that my damaged hair was beginning to heal itself after I started to do the water only washing method which had completely detoxed my hair from all that gunk I used to use. Now I only use natural products in my hair. Although I still use the water only washing method, I love to buy raw vegan shampoos every once in a while.
I’ve recently had received my Morrocco Method order within the mail which I was so excited by because each product has an element theme and is completely raw vegan. You can wash your hair with these products every day because they are natural and healthy for your hair. Morrocco Method does recommend that you rotate each shampoo, for instance, fire, ether, air, water, and then earth. I’m not sure if that’s the correct order that they recommend but I’ve seen a photograph of the shampoos with a rotation arrow with this order so it might be correct.

Each product has a pleasant aroma, an earthy color, and a soft texture. It’s all made to detox your hair from anything damaging that your hair was used to receiving. Morrocco Method was created to cleanse your hair without creating a foamy texture.
Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is a fire element and will revitalize your hair and stimulate your scalp with its natural ingredients.
Sea Essence Shampoo is a water element and will give your hair a natural shine as if you are a mermaid swimming in the sea.
Pine Shale Shampoo is an air element that is made with ingredients that will give your hair the right nourishment that it needs.
Heavenly Essence Shampoo is an ether element made with aloe vera which has many healing properties and it will give your hair the hydration that it needs.
Earth Essence Shampoo is an earth element and will make your hair feel thicker and fuller.

After using this raw vegan shampoo, I can definitely say that I didn’t experience any residue of the product left in my hair. Each shampoo washed out perfectly for me and it left my hair smelling beautiful, feeling soft, fluffy and clean. I’ve always used the Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo but this was the first time that I’ve tried the other shampoos and I absolutely adored them.

Love always,

The Journey to Self Love

Photo by Dids

"Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.” - Anonymous
When it comes to loving oneself, I’ve noticed that people sometimes have a negative reaction. Some may feel that it’s wrong to think of yourself in such a way and that you should love others more than you love yourself. Some may feel that it’s vain or conceded and many think that it’s the silliest thing that they ever heard of but none of these things are true.

I know you must be careful about what you watch on the tv screen because when you are watching a comedy or tv show and the character is making fun of themselves or talking very ill about themselves, it can affect you. I know that you think it’s just tv and that they are just acting but be conscious when watching it so it won’t creep into your mind.

You should also be aware of who is in your company because if you are hearing people talk negatively about themselves then that can also creep into your mind. This is true because it happened to me. When I was working at my old job, everyone there would make fun of themselves in the worst way possible and when a negative thought about myself crept into my mind, I was lucky that I caught it right away because you never want something to become a negative belief about yourself.

Self-love can cause you to accept who you are and embrace your natural beauty. It’s about loving your personality, loving what’s amazing about you, and learning to love all the things that you thought were flaws. It’s about letting go of what society standards of what beauty is and not changing who you are to mold into what others want you to be. You are perfect as you are and you only have to see that for yourself now. Love yourself.

Love always,
Princess Hiyah

My 3 Day Experience with This Acne Treatment System (Day 2 & 3)

It’s not easy for me to find really good products that can give my skin the treatment it needs but Clearskin® Professional Acne Treatment System ($38.00) was a great experience. Like I mentioned before, I have trouble with clogged pores, especially around my nose area and I figured this stuff might help me with my skincare routine.
Day 2

After a long day at work, I am always ready to hop into the shower for a fresh start but this time, I can have a little extra fun with this three-step skincare product. I first cleansed my skin with fresh water and then, just to see my experience with it on the second day, I applied Clearskin® Professional Liquid Extraction Strip ($16.00). You are actually only supposed to use it twice a week but I had to try this sticky pill off mask one more time for this week because I felt the first time, I didn’t let it all dry completely before I pilled it off. I got the same result. It’s nice to see my nose area get some extra love.
This sounds weird but it’s nice to wash my face after I hop out of the shower because it seems to really open my pores as a sauna would. For some reason, I get better skincare results whenever I wash my hair too as if it connected somehow. That’s why I love to wash my hair often because my skin and hair can be happy at the same time.

After that, I did the same three-step skincare routine with Clearskin® Professional Acne Treatment System ($38.00) that I did yesterday, but it was the same result. It might have done something that was too subtle to notice but I didn’t take any photos of my face after a wash. Oh well.
Day 3

It’s my off day and I’m going to make the most of it. I noticed my skin looks not as oily and greasy when I’m not working. It’s nice that I can use Clearskin® Professional Acne Treatment System ($38.00) daily but it suggests that you use it not every day if your skin is sensitive to it. I personally haven’t had any issues with it so I’m fine with using it again.

I wanted to share my experience within three days but to be honest, this stuff amazed me the first day and I guess that was enough to see amazing results. Overall, my skin looks and feel beautiful which means it works for me. Let me know in the comments below if you love this product.

Love always,

My 3 Day Experience with This Acne Treatment System (Day 1)

I’ve been wanting to try Clearskin® Professional Acne Treatment System ($38.00) for years and finally received it in the mail. I’ve been having some trouble with my skin because I’ve noticed that my pores can get pretty clogged up, plus I have oily skin that I need to take good care of.

Technically, I don’t have issues with acne but I do get a few pimples every once in a while so I figured this will be a great way to give my skin a deep cleanse. Clearskin® Professional Acne Treatment System is a three-step skincare routine and it claims that you’ll see some results within the first three days so I wanted to take on this lovely test try for myself and share what I've experienced within the first three days of this treatment.

Note that everyone’s skin is completely different and your experience most will likely be different than mine so I would say you should try this product out for yourself to see if it will work for you. I would also suggest that you find out if this product is correct for you by reading the description before using it.
Day 1

I have issues around my nose, t-zone area and chin because it’s usually clogged up with dirt and I thought the first product I should use is the Clearskin® Professional Liquid Extraction Strip ($16.00) which is meant for those three areas. This product doesn’t come with the trio but you can buy it separately.

As soon as I applied it on to my skin, I’ve noticed how sticky it was which I’m not used to. I’m used to pill-off masks to be more liquidy textured but this one was very thick and sticky. I was nervous about this and was hoping that it wasn’t a bad product but when I searched for a review, someone else also experienced this too. If you’ve experienced this or other with this product, comment below.
After this product dried, I pilled it off to discover that it brought all the dirt to the surface. I know this wasn’t apart of the three-step package but I’m adding this as another step in the process.

It’s important that you don’t use and face scrub too often so you won’t damage your skin but Clearskin® Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub ($10.00) can be used daily (depending on how sensitive your skin is.) It’s made to prevent blemishes, acne and it’s designed to remove any dirt from your skin.
As soon as I applied this product, I notice to the cooling sensation that it gave me but the texture was surprising to me for some reason because it was very pasty with exfoliating grains within it to cleanse access dirt and it was very white. I believe that this might be a great solution for me because after I washed it off, I notice a pimple came up to the surface.

I then massaged one pad of the Clearskin® Professional Clarifying Toner Pads ($15.00) onto my cleansed skin which contains 45 pads within it. It gave my skin a small tingly feeling mainly around my nose area but it only felt that way for a short amount of time.

Finally, the third step of this acne treatment was to apply the Clearskin® Professional Daily Correcting Lotion ($16.00) which also is designed to work some magic. It will not only hydrate your skin but reduce blemishes and acne as long as you are wearing it.

I would most definitely say that my experience for day one, was pretty amazing because it left my skin feeling extremely fresh and clean. I’ll see you tomorrow for an update since I’m going to use it as soon as I get home from working all day.

Love always,

Why I Created a Bloggers' Chat on Twitter #HarmonyBloggers

Source: www.pexels.com
The moment I fell in love with blogging was the moment that I created my first ever blog on Tumblr. It was all about my spiritual beliefs at the time but then I decided to take it to the next level and created a blogger account where I can post beauty, fashion, and inspiration.

Over the years, I’ve noticed how much I have grown and I’m still improving myself along the way. Blogging for me is a simple little hobby that can be used to express my love for writing and it’s amazing to see that there are others with the passion for blogging as well.

The blogging community is so inspiring and it’s wonderful that there are so many Twitter accounts and hashtags that are here to help you promote your blog posts, such as, #GRLPOWR, #BloggersTribe, #BloggingGals, @FemaleBloggerRT. @LovingBlogs. #bbloggers, #fbloggers, #bloggers and so on. I’ve been inspired by so many bloggers that I decided to create my own little hashtag called #HarmonyBloggers that can be used to give advice, share your thoughts and to promote your blog post. It’s free to use for whenever you desire.

It’s a simple community where we can chat and share our ideas with each other. We can empower each other, we can encourage one another and get inspired by this simple little hashtag, #HarmonyBloggers. Use this hashtag for a ReTweet and I’ll do my best to share it on @HarmonyBloggers.

Review: Hum Nutrition Runway Ready

I’ve fallen in love with Hum Nutrition at first sight and when I heard the story of why the creators created Hum, I was even more inspired to buy their product. You can find anything you’re looking for, rather, you want to get rid of acne, detox your body or etc. I was interested in getting longer and healthier hair and as soon as I found the product I was looking for, I was beyond excited to receive it.

When I was scrolling through their website, I saw Hum Nutrition Red Carpet, which is a vegetarian vitamin, made to give you longer hair and healthy skin. I couldn’t say no to this product, but I was torn by some of the other products I saw online and was only planning on buying one.

Then I saw Hum Nutrition Killer Nails, which are vegan vitamins that are made to give you longer hair, just like Red Carpet, but will help your nails grow healthy. It’s not the easiest thing to choose which product you want when you’re on their website, because they have so many options. If I can only choose one, which one should I buy?
Luckily, I found Hum Nutrition Runway Ready, which are 30-day packets with three vitamins in each (2 Red Carpet, 1 Killer nails) that I can take daily. It was the most perfect combination of vitamins and I was able to get both of the vitamins that I wanted but in one package. Plus, when you purchase Hum Nutrition, you have three different order options. I chose to sign up for the monthly subscription, so when I think I’m running out, a NEW package is sent to me right away.

I’ve been in love with the major results I’ve seen so far from using Hum Nutrition because I can see improvements in my hair, nails, and skin. Hum Nutrition Runway Ready absolutely works for me and I can’t wait until I try their other vitamins.

Have you tried Hum Nutrition vitamins yet? Sign up today and use my referral code 1175F7, so we both can get $10 OFF with our next order.

Love always,
