Ziplining with Flight of the Gibbon

Zipline with Flight of the Gibbon

I can’t believe it’s been 8 months since my girls trip to Thailand and we’re preparing to head to Morocco in a few weeks. Outside of surviving a super long flight, one of the most memorable moments was zip lining for the first time. We wanted to end the trip with a bang so we researched companies that had ziplining around the areas we stayed. Read more about my zipline experience...

Summer No Buy 2017: July Empties

It’s a little more than halfway through the summer and I’m sharing July empties for my summer no buy. Being a natural hair and beauty blogger is tough. Even though there are three of us on Type 4 Naturals, having different textures means sending products and reviews for three heads! For much of July, I used items from Jane Carter’s Curls to Go line for reviews and our Instagram take...

Vacation Ideas for Your Next Girls Trip

I'm not much of a movie person, but as a travel lover, I just HAD to see the movie Girls Trip. Starring Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah, Girls trip is a comedy of four friends' adventure in New Orleans during the annual Essence Music Festival weekend. My High School friends and I saw it opening weekend and the movie showed great lessons in self-discovery, bravery,...

Free in NYC: Kayaking at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Free in NYC Kayaking at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Since spending the Summer home, I’ve found some free and low-cost activities around the city; one of them being free kayaking at Brooklyn Bridge Park. From June to the end of August, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse hosts free kayaking in the East river. As soon as I heard about this activity, I was interested but missed the first opportunity. This time around, I shared a double kayak with one...

How to Book a Casa Particular in Cuba

In addition to questions on how to visit Cuba legally and getting around, I received many questions on where to stay. Hotels are pretty expensive, but to be in compliance with the Support for Cuban People category, you should be staying at a Casa Particular (vacation rental or casa for short). Types of casas include private rooms, apartments, or entire houses. If you’re visiting Cuba anytime soon, here are some tips...

Summer No Buy 2017: June Empties

I’m taking a short break from sharing monthly empties for my annual #summernobuy. Attending events allow me to save trips to the beauty supply store, but sometimes it’s just too much. Some products don’t work while others just sit on the shelf. After giving and throwing things away through the year, each summer I do a “no buy” emptying as many products as possible. Not sure how to clear your...

Switching up Styles with Black Hairspray

[disclaim]This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.[/disclaim] Being a lazy natural, I’ve developed an appreciation for wearing wigs. I purchased a few wigs last winter to help my hair dry and for lazy days. I’m pretty shy when buying in store, so I use online services like Black Hairspray to purchase wigs. Black Hairspray is a beauty e-commerce company that sells wigs and hair care products. Through this...
