Hello hello all, have you fastened your seatbelts?
I drafted this while we were keeping an eye on Hurricane Dorian. Fortunately, Florida was mostly spared, but the Bahamas suffered major damage. If you have GoFundMes or other donation links, send them and I’ll share them!
I haven’t been blogging lately because I can’t get into my affiliate links program! I’m not here to sell you things every post, but I did just have some book posts and want to have variety. So I’ll promo things some more indie brands pro bono! (I was able to get in on a desktop??? So there will be affiliate links at the end of this post).

MORTICIA Bath Bomb is almost back! ⚰️ Scented with pure, high quality Rose Absolute (yes, the stuff you find in high end perfumes) and classic victorian-esque rose, filled with rose petals, and deep red inner core, and the right amount of skin softening raw Shea Butter to keep your skin as soft and glowing as Morticia herself. You'll be taking the most pampering bath one can imagine. Don't let the outer appearance fool you – Morticia is full of color inside and out.
First up in the incredibly Instagrammable Foxie Cosmetics which seems to sell more bath goods than makeup. Owner and creator Kayla Phillips, a writer, musician, and activist (!), knows the importance of vegan, animal testing-free and even chronic illness options and all those factors influence her vibrant and unique products.

Coloured Raine might be the first brand I’ve come across to mention that they strive for fair wages. Created by Loraine Dowdy, I like that she acknowledges the push to highlight black and black woman owned businesses includes reasons like other brands don’t take different skin tones into account. Coloured Raine doesn’t test on animals, has many vegan items and also is environmentally-minded.
Coloured Raine is available at colouredraine.com and select Targets!

Protective Hairstyles are so unique, versatile and fun! When wearing these styles, we have to make sure we Care Our Hair Under There 😀 We have to make sure our scalps are clean, our ends stay hydrated, conditioned and moisturized! My Protective Styles Line is the answer!!!! #TWProtective #sulfatefree #biotin #haircare #naturalhair #braids #crochetbraids #crochet #weaves #longliveedges #careunderthere #extensions #protectivestylesfacts #vacationhair #urbanbeautyhair #longhair #healthyhairhealthybody #protectivestyles #bamboo #coconutmilk #mint #summerhair #TaliahWaajidBrand
While “natural” may conjure thoughts of botanical ingredients, natural hair particularly associated with a movement may refer to the embracing of naturally curly, coily, and kinky hair. This is to whom Taliah Waajid has spent 20 years catering. But I like that like her ingredients still seem kind of plant and vitamin-based. A few skincare items are also offered.
Taliah Waajid is available at Naturalhair.org and at Walmart!
