Stay Fresh with Norforms

feminine hygiene duppositories

When I was growing up many years ago, my Mom didn't talk to me about feminine stuff. Later in life, she told me it was because she was taught that it was something that you just didn't talk about. Most women my age in the black community that I know, Moms had the same mindset. That mindset caused me to have to figure things out on my own. Which wasn't easy at all.

I told myself, if I ever had a daughter, I would talk to her about everything. I would make it common for her and I to have conversations about her period, hygiene, and sex (at the appropriate time of course).

It has made things so easy for my daughter because she has developed very early. She got her cycle at the tender age of 9, one month and a few days before her 10th birthday and she was prepared because we talked about it. I'll share that in another post.

Anyway, although Norforms have been around for a long time, I found out about them about a year ago. I've always had great personal hygiene and when I saw these, I thought wow, I wonder if they work!

They are suppositories that help combat odor internally safely. They come with an applicator that you use to insert them. They are very small but powerful LOL!

You should wear a pantie liner because it dissolves and runs back out. It makes you smell great down there! They have 2 fragrances; Island Escape (my favorite) and Tropical Splash. 12 come in a box. They are Dermatologist and Gynecologist tested. p-H balanced. Hypoallergenic and safe and gentle for everyday use!

I'll probably let my daughter start using these when she turns 13 or so. For now, I'm enjoying not having to share them!!

There is no reason for anyone to be funky these days!! Oh, this is NOT a sponsored post. I just wanted to share some hygiene tips!

Irresistible Me Hair Accessories

Brown Girls Hair Accessories

Irresistible Me sent me 5 hair accessories to try from their new line. I am going to break down what I love, like, and -not so much- about the accessories that I have.

Trinity Hair Combs

The Trinity Hair Combs is my F A V O R I T E!! It can be used in so many ways to spruce up all kinds of styles! It is easy to use and it doesn't snag my hair at all!

Khaleesi Tikka

The Khaleesi Tikka is the cutest hair pin that I have ever seen. I love the way it looks and the quality of it. I had a hard time taking it out because it grips the hair very tight and I wanted to make sure I didn't pull or break my hair while removing it. Overall it is a stunning hair accessory.

Isis Headband

The Isis Headband is a very dressy headband. I love the way it looks in my hair. It will certainly give a simple hairstyle the red carpet look. My cons to this is that it did snag several strands of my hair when removing it.

Kiara Hair Comb

Although this is a the top of the list of being the cutest, the Kiara Hair Comb is my least favorite to put in my hair. The combs are not smooth and they snagged my hair really bad when I removed them. The chains with the rhinestones also snagged my hair really bad. That made this my least favorite.

Kate Bobby Pin

The Kate Bobby Pin is cute and simple, but just like the Khalessi Tikka, it has a very tight grip so you must be careful removing it. It also has a rhinestones at the top of the crown that snagged my hair.

Needless to say I love the Trinity Hair Combs. It's the one that I wear the most. Use discount code IrresistibleShaunic here to get yours with a special discount!

Grow Your Nails with Me *Week 12*

How to Grow Long Nails

I know I said that I would wait until I reached  my maximum length to do one last video, but the length of my nails wasn't clear on the last video so I wanted to do a video where you could clearly see my nails. I did a better job of showing them on this one.

Together WE are fighting childhood cancer!! Join Us

A couple of years ago, I was invited to one of my co-workers (who has also become a dear friend) birthday celebration that was a paint party. At the party, my husband and I met a cool couple who brought their beautiful daughter with them. Her name is Hailey. At the time, she was battling cancer. All of her hair was gone, but her spirit was so happy and sweet! As a result of her battle and her family's struggle, The Hailey Bankhead Foundation was born.

The Hailey Bankhead Foundation is an organization founded from one mother's love for her child facing childhood cancer and a need to find a sense of purpose and a desire to ease the pain and to serve other families facing childhood cancers. 

Since the paint party, we have been able to watch Hailey bloom and also attend their First Annual formal dinner and auction fund raiser last year. The time has come again for the 3rd Annual 5K run, walk, and fun!! This will be our first year participating and we would love to meet you there too!

Red by Kiss Ceramic Tourmaline Curling Wand Review

Curling Wand on Natural Hair

Red by Kiss Ceramic Tourmaline Curling Wand

This is my favorite curling wand on the planet!! It is reasonably priced. I paid only $24.99 for it at a local beauty supply store. It comes with a heat pouch and a heat protectant glove. It is super easy to use!

This video shows my hair results after my very first time using it. It didn't take me more than 30 minutes to achieve this look. I used nice size chunks of my hair in this first trial try and my hair turned out perfectly!

I am thrilled at how my hair turned out after using this wand. I had no idea that it would give me the wavy look that I've been trying to achieve for years!!

Stay tuned because I will be posting a how to video in a few days!
