From Jerusalem to the West Bank: Humans Without Borders

Giveaway (and hella pics) below!


Hola Chicas, 

So I hated to do it, but we spent the whole of Tuesday on one of those cattle drives tourist trips that require that you get on a bus, off a bus, on a bus, off a bus, listen to a story, eat at the pre-selected restaurant where your tour guide already made a kickback deal for you to eat crappy felafel, look at the same souvenir crap made out of plastic and wonder which relative gets which piece of crap... which of course is made in China. But the point is that when you're in Israel, you simply must visit a few major locations and this annoying ass tour allowed us to visit all of them in one day. So that's what we did...we saw Jerusalem and it was wonderful.  I hope that you decide to visit the Holy City one day as well.  When and if you do, remember that while you're looking at all of these beautiful ancient sights, the West Bank is actually behind you and it's full of Palestinians.  On Monday, we went to Jerusalem too, but then we kept going and actually crossed the infamous fortified wall into the West Bank and met real life Palestinians.

Shikakai Powder for Cleaner, Healthier Natural Hair


by Sabrina Perkins

As more women encompass natural ways to care for themselves and their bodies, gravitating to yesteryear’s methods for high quality beauty maintenance and reducing their carbon footprint is appealing and gaining momentous traction. Nothing wrong with loving the latest and the greatest in beauty and personal care, but if you want to tap into Mother Nature’s garden of natural treasures, you merely have to take a lesson in history. We all want healthy, lustrous hair and our world is bombarded with new man-made products to try, but many women are taking greener pathways to beautification.

For thousands of years people in India have used a holistic approach to healthcare called Ayurveda therapy. Ayurveda means “the knowledge for long life” and this alternative pathway to wellness strives to retain harmony between the mind, body, and spirit while keeping illnesses at bay. According to the University of Minnesota, the durability of this holistic therapy is significant, as 90% of India’s population still uses some form of Ayurveda therapy today.

DIY Whipped Cocoa Shea Mango Butter – Hair & Body

  DIY Whipped Cocoa Shea Mango Butter – Hair & Body uncategorized


It was only in 2014 that I discovered my love for whipped butter. This gem has multiple purposes and who doesn’t love a product that can be used for both your hair and skin!

For Natural Hair: It helps to seal in moisture, provides shine and lustre to the hair and helps tame frizz and fly-aways. Due to the ingredients, it helps to make the hair soft and supple therefore reduces friction on the hair strands which helps to reduce tangles and knots. It also is great on the scalp!

For the skin: The whip helps to seal in moisture in the skin, especially when used after a shower or bath. It helps to sooth irritated skin, generates new skin cells and can help fade light stretch marks on the body. The butter leaves the skin feeling smooth without being greasy as it gets absorbed easily.
