The Twist !

Hey !! We are back up and running I have many post coming threw ! Bust start off lets talk about Bumbas' Hair . So over the weeks shes had a lots of growth. I figured it was about time to try some mini twist, I know what was I thinking Huh? No clue but seemed like a great idea at the moment . Because, Bumba wont stay still for long I did these with in 2 days.
Before I started these I will say I didn't start with pre-washed hair .I had already had her hair in medium twist so I sectioned into 4 parts and started with one section at a time. I used Bee Mine Luscious to braid with and Bee Mine Hold to seal with. No rubber bands were used as you see she developed some "curls" at the end which is Awesome ! Next week Ill be doing a vinegar rise on scalp and condition the ends with the Bee Mine Daily. I'll be doing a update soon!

TriCalm offers powerful relief from itching, burning and stinging caused by rashes, hives, sunburn, allergic reactions,
bug bites, poison ivy and other skin ailments. A steroid-free anti-itch gel, TriCalm works on contact to help alleviate
discomfort associated with minor skin irritations.
  I had to wonderful opportunity to sample TriCalm anti-itch gel for a few weeks from and let me say it totally works. I was very pleased on how it performed . Although the smell is bland it does the job. My little bumba had developed a rash on her leg area I applied once after a bath everyday and in about one week I saw her stop itching which put smiles all this way. It's a small tube so it fits pretty much in a purse or such. Now , the gel is a little runny I like my gels to be semi-thick but all in all I was pleased. When I first received it my first reaction was it wasn't going to work . I defiantly was far wrong not only did it work for my little ones but me too ! It is strong though I had a scratch and applied some because it wasn't a open wound it was mostly healed and it gave it a little sting so this may not be for little ones but maybe used on a small itchy rash. Prior to TriCalm I had used some other anti-itch gels &creams but they didn't work as I wanted. This gel isn't sticky like some or leave a mess .I would defiantly give this a try you wont regreat it ! But if you'd like to try it first enter in the giveaway below to try a tube for free ! :)a Rafflecopter giveaway

Just the facts:
• TriCalm’s formula contains COSMEDERM-7, a compound of strontium, a naturally occurring element
found in leafy green vegetables.
• TriCalm is safe to use daily on kids and adults and is FDA-approved.
• TriCalm is non-numbing, and works on contact to provide rapid itch relief from bug bites, rashes,
sunburns, poison oak/ivy, and more. It may also help relief dry skin and eczema-related symptoms.
• TriCalm does not increase sensitivity to UV rays, so its safe to use while spending time in the sun.
• TriCalm retails for $9.49 for a 2-ounce tube.

Softcup Review ~Detail ~

 Here's a brief in detail review of Soft cup with a few simple How To's and some great links. Now,its a new year and defiantly a lot of y'all are looking for a change. As a  women we have to go through a lot ...Being on our menstrual is a big one that you have to go through in life. For some its painful some its a breeze yet to each is unique and calls for different needs and attention. Menstration can come with disorders also diagnosed by your physician  A point to bring up also if you don't feel right or are concerned please so make a appointment and consult with your doctor never second guess yourself your body will let you know if something is wrong or right.I have always struggled with my cycle but, for me what has helped is a few things 1.Softcup 2.Diet 3.Exercise 4.Water 4.Sleep 5.Education . Today I'm going to talk about number 1. Softcup and my review on it .

What to do first:

  • Get the manual read it carefully.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with a natural soap
  • Just for extra ..some Purell after washing apply like it says so on the bottle 
  • Only take out the cup when ready to use so there's no contamination 

(You can get hand sanitize for cheap)

This is what Softcup looks like out the pack it comes in its about 1.5 inch in size
 Here's what the cup looks like its about 1 in deep-This cup is where the fluid stores until emptied

Once you find a comfortable position where its sitting or standing knees parted slightly clamp in the middle making a figure 8 shape.

Hold it straight still in the clamped figure 8 position ,Relax find your base.
 Slant the cup downwards and back at the base going towards the cervix  once in gently curve making a U buy inserting in slanted sliding softcup in as far back as you can (no worries theres no way it can disappear permanently )and letting  it  lock in to the cervix it will lock onto the cervix on its own. If not simply take your pointer finger or middle and find the rim gently press up you should feel it.. tap the top ensuring its in place if you do this.The cup should rest like number 1.  When in properly you shouldn't feel it make sure it is locked to the base bone so there's no leakage.It may take you 2-4 times getting the hang of it with no leakage so wear a liner on your first tries.
Afterwards check after about 10-15 mins once gravity pulls and your cycle flows if you see half dollar leak its not in correctly please remove and try again repeating the steps. If its leakage like when your wipe that's normal you may see that no need to be alarmed.

The cup easily expands itself to fit the form of your body naturally so that you don't feel it it works with your body it listens to your body. Now, I had mentioned it prevented my menstrual cramps I believe it does so because the cup doesn't apply pressure, and they are natural fitting.

 Once you get used to them you can place them in a Softcup purse pack these cost around 5.99
 This is how the purse looks inside it holds to cups discreetly you can also customize the case or sew a cute pouch to put it in I've made 2 so far.
You can purchase Softcup at or accompanied by some other websites and many stores go to for more information and product options along with ways to purchase some samples!

Here's their blog awesome information and good reads.

SoftCup Giveaway!

~Softcup believes in empowering women and
offering products that help to improve their
lives. With a focus on health and well-being,
Softcup celebrates women: They strive to be
honest, trustworthy, positive, innovative, and
  Yes,I know I never done a post so personal. But , this is a must I tell you so here we go. Long before I had a lot of menstrual problem that I was so embarrassed to talk about it made me feel like I was the only one alive that had to go through this. The pain was stabbing and results were unbearable. My time frame of a cycle was much longer than normal and then there was nothing for me to do. Years I tell ya'll years I put up with this horrible natural thing that each one of us women experiences. Until , now things are amazing so much has changed because of not only my change in eating but, Softcup. Few months back I received samples through wonder site that gives you the opportunity to test samples of natural and organic products for your honest opinion;I used these for 2 cycles. I must say when I first tried It was un-easy directions and a few tries to get the cup positioned correctly  so you know there's no mess because it is a cup. After my third try I got it I couldn't feel a thing its very comfortable almost too comfortable. These are 12 hr cups but to each their own maybe your a 6 hr or 8 hr either way these are GREAT! Some may say Ewe ! that's gross or something in that field but you cant knock it until you try and these babies are worth it not only did Softcup shorten my cycle time frame but I cope better. Before I had instant pain that never left with these; barely. They are just a natural feel with less hassle and you can be at ease knowing toxic shock isn't going to knock at your door.Its been 4 wonderful months the best 4 months because for the first time easy menstruation. I'm defiantly I Softcup rooter now and will never go back to the old options .Here's some more awesome information! Below:

by collecting rather than absorbing menstrual flow. Because of its
special design, one size fits almost all women.
