Hey Honey Bunnies!
How many of you like to read? I know I sure do. I love to read all kinds for books from fiction to self-help. Recently, I had the chance to read the soon to be released book by Miko Branch and Titi Branch of Miss Jessie’s intitled Miss Jessie’s: Creating a Successful Business from Scratch. This book is full of great business advice along with moving family stories and hair care tips.

The book tells how they built their hair care business from their home kitchen, in to a multimillion dollar company. The book offers a 13- step business plan recipe for building your dream business, tips for doing business with family, how to go with your gut instinct when opportunities knock, and much much more. I just love the hair language definitions at the back of the book too. So if you do not know certain lingo within the natural hair community, the list in the will help you.

I have to say that this book is a must have reference if you are trying build your home based business. You will find jems of valuable information packed throughout the book.

The book goes on sale April 14, 2015. It will retail for $24.99. You can pre-order now on Amazon now for $18.62. Grab your copy today! You’ll be glad you did!!

Purple may not be the first color you consider when planning your next design project, but depending on the hue, purple can play many roles. A deep purple can provide a bold statement, while a lilac or lavender can soothe and relax. Check out some of our favorite purple rooms to inspire your next project.

Hey All,

Jenn here from MakeupMyMind.ca jumping in to share a post with all of the Review Chic’s lovely readers! This look will help take you from day to night by stepping up your lip game after hours!
RC1.NyxClarins
First I start with NYX pencil ‘Baby Pink’ all over my lips. Use this step to reshape your lips or overdraw a bit to give yourself a fuller look.
Second I go over the liner with Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 01 it’s a nice subtle pink shade but helps keep your lips hydrated throughout day. The applicator tip makes it nice and easy to touchup when necessary.
RC3.Addeyeshadow
After hours: Going out for dinner or drinks after work? Feeling flirty? I take my Royal & Langnickel Pro Angled Eyeliner/brow #146 brush (it keeps with the pointed angles of the lips) and lightly pat some Make Up Forever I804 Golden Pink gel-to-powder blush onto my lips. This seals in the staying power to last through the night and adds a gold iridescent sheen.
RC2.MOTD.MMM

I love the result! It’s pretty pink with a hint of gold that reflects in the light. You can swap out any shadow colour but I find that iridescent/shimmery consistency give the best result.
Don’t forget to sip through a straw!

As you all know I try to make sure that I am putting good foods in my body. So, when I go the chance to try out the Superfood Bundle from Sari Foods, I just like a kid in the candy store. They sent me a 3-Pack of products that included Spirulina powder, Vitamin C powder, and Nutritional Yeast. All I have to say is that I loved the nutritional yeast but the others not so much.

Let’s be honest, what makes us eat or drink is the taste of them. I can say that I just was not feeling the taste of the Spirulina and Vitamin C powders. The nutritional yeast however, was very pleasing to my buds with its nutty cheese flavor. I may have to find a way to amp up the flavors of the others because I like the benefits that they offer. So I will be sure to update this review.

The Products
Spirulina powder is comprised of more than 60% protein and is a natural source of bioavailable iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9’s). Spirulina has over 100 types of vitamins and nutrients – more than any other type of grain, plant, or herb.

The nutritional yeast is naturally comprised of 50% protein (a complete, bioavailable and vegan source), over 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids and 15 different minerals (including iron, selenium and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties).

The Acerola Vitamin C powder is 100% food based vitamin C providing you with all of the benefits of this miracle vitamin without compromising your body or health. Natural Vitamin C is the missing piece of the puzzle to your body’s immune system, offering protection against colds and many viruses. Vitamin C also fights free radicals, promotes cell regeneration and is a natural antihistamine which means it may even help keep allergies, asthma and inflammation in check!

These super foods can be purchased on Amazon or at sarifoods.com. Have you tried any of these super foods.

I like to use essential oils in many ways. But they can often hit you in wallet. I was happy when I got the chance to review InstaNatural’s oils. When the arrived at my door I could smell them through the box. Yes, they were that aromatic. They were packaged very well too. The first thing I did was put some of the lemon oil in my oil burner. It filled my home with the fresh smell of lemons. Next, I added a few drops of the peppermint oil in a mix of carrier oils for my hair. I love the cooling effect that it gives to my scalp and it smelled wonderful as well. I liked how these oils came with a dropper. This makes it much easier to work with. The price point for these oil are very inexpensive. I love to use the oils in my bath, in my homemade body butters, lotions, and scrubs.
