Happily Ever…. After


Hello My favorite Naturalistas!! I know I know I have been away but so much has been going on in my life!! As most of you know I recently got married, and we are expecting our bundle of Joy in June. I have just been taking time to be with my husband and family. But dont fret… I am back on my blogging. I am aiming for three posts a week Monday,Wednesday and Friday postings. Check out deets below of my wedding and reception!! xoxo

  We wed March 22, 2014 at City Hall, Located in Chicago, IL. This was one of the best decisions we have ever made. It was so nice, so memorable, quick and easy with NO HASSLE AT ALL!! I really enjoyed the day!! Afterwards we had breakfast with my cousin, and we stayed at a 5 star hotel in downtown Chicago called the Langham. If you are in Chicago check that hotel out! It is AMAZING!!!

I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Me and my Husband Randy are so grateful for all of our family and friends! We appreciate all the love and words of encouragement on our special day from all of you as well.

Rhassoul & Bentonite Clay Detoxifying Shampoo Bar

My Review:

I was not a fan of shampoo bars until I tried this one! Man!!! My hair was really jacked up due to an overload of product. But this shampoo bar really cleansed my hair and scalp. My hair wasn’t stripped at all! Ladies this is a must try product!!! Below is a pic of my hair after it was washed with the shampoo bar:
