Simple Things

Raw Unrefined Cocoa Butter:  I can't wait to give it a try.  It does smell so rich and delicious!

Thank you, Shea Essentials!

Raw Unrefined Shea Butter:  A most wonderful moisturizer.  It's time for me to make some more concoctions.

Thank you, Shea Essentials!

Pure African Black Soap:  This time I got mine scented with Egyptian Sandlewood.  I wish you could smell it.  I love this soap!

And again, thank you, Shea Essentials!  
Can you tell that I love this independent company?

Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style Conditioning Milk:  Who knew it would make my twists do this when untwisted?

Thank you, Shea Moisture!

And a Newly Completed Cowl Neckwarmer:  Knitted!  I know I probably won't keep it, and it seems to need some matching fingerless gloves.  Don't you think?

  1. OMG!!! You did a FABULOUS job on the cowl Libby! I think you need some mitts to go with it. I really hope you keep it for yourself. I looks great on you. And all those 'beauty' products sound dreamy. I remember the smell of Sandalwood from when I was in Egypt years ago. Memories.


  2. I absolutely love natural hair and body care products, that shea butter looks great!
    You look radiant in your cowl Libby!

  3. Lovely post!!! I love natural products as well :) They make me so happy for some reason lol, and you look lovely in that photo!

  4. I love the neckwarmer! I love the color, and the big smile! :)
