30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge

Hey Maicurlies,

After committing to the Protective Style and Castor Oil Challenge a couple of us in the Napturally Curly Forum decided that we are going to do a few other challenges too (this and one more to come!) “Are you crazy” I hear you asking… well NO! Just really motivated…maybe a little over motivated but I am so in the groove at the moment!

A beautiful naturalista on the forum pointed out that there is an online 30 day “Simple Green Smoothie Challenge” and of course a few of us wanted to join in. I do not want to step on anyones toes (copyright infringement) so in case you are interested to find out more please click on the link above to go to the challenge site.

Everything is FREE!!! Signing up? FREE! The recipe and shopping lists? FREE!!!

In case terms “green smoothies” makes you want to gag don’t worry it is NOT ONLY vegetables, plus you can always modify the recipes to your preference. Once you sign up, you will get an email to confirm you are going to join and then once a week thereafter you will get an email with the weekly smoothie recipes and shopping lists. Apart from the products you will also need a blender and something to store your smoothies (mason jars always look awesome)!

The challenge starts on the 1st of October so you still have time to sign up. I already got my recipe email and will start stocking up on some greens and fruit!

If you are doing a smoothie challenge please let me know. If you plan on joining this challenge please let me know, we can help motivate one another!





Slowly but surly getting there – Hair, Skin and Health Blog update

Hi guys!

So as the title suggests I am slowly getting through the initial things I wanted to write up! The thing is, as I start writing I keep on thinking of new things to write! Anyways so yes I have written up a good part of my Hair and Skin care sections. There are still things missing though and I will star getting though them. The health section is also pretty much done but I think I will be adding in a few things like my favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes. I will probably also put up my exercise plan showing the exercise videos I use from Fitness Blender and how my Elliptical Machine workout program. 

In my next post I will do quick summary of which Hair and Skin Care explanations I have written until now (04.09.2013). This will make it easier for you to know what is actually done so far. As I write more I will make new posts highlighting them. 

Hopefully the blog will start picking up and I will get to interact with a few of you! 




My Plans

So last night while all my creative juices were flowing I started to brainstorm on how exactly I would carry out this Blog. The last thing I want to do is bore you guys and since I am the sort of person who likes to keep things organized (as much as possible), I figured it would make sense if my Blog and YouTube Channel sort of correspond with one another. Not everyone likes reading through loads of information and some people prefer to read so if I keep both sources similar no one group misses out on anything. So here are my initial plans.

For the Hair Care Section:

I will breakdown my routines which starts with my wash days. On wash days I also incorporate a Deep Conditioner (DC) Treatment. I have 3 different DIY ones that and 1 store bought DC I use for different reasons (I will explain them in my routines section later). I also do my Apple Cider Cleanse on wash days. I will show you how I moisturize my hair and then each week or every two weeks I plan on doing a different Hair Style Videos/Blog write-ups. Following those will be Videos/Blog write-ups on my ‘mid-week styles’ which consists of Up-Do’s, if I am not trying to stretch out a particular look. I would love to get suggestions or even tips from you, so if there are any requests on styles I have not tried before I will look it up and try it out. This will give me a chance to learn something new as well!

I have to reiterate that I am not a professional Hair Stylist. I basically teach myself by watching and learning from others so I will have to ask you to please bear with me at times. Sometimes I might actually have Videos/Blog write-ups on things I tried that either did not work with my hair or perhaps I did not like. Now just because it did not work for me or I did not like a particular look does not mean it is “bad”. It just means it did not work for me…it might work for you!

For the Skin Care Section

I am going to start off with my skin care routines, DIY treatments, skin care tips etc. I will try and leave tips for all kinds of skin care (dry, oily, sensitive etc) but would also ‘focus’ on my type of skin (because I know that the best). If you guys are interested to see some videos about that I would be happy to do that as well.

For the Health Section

I basically will do the same as for the Skin Care; put up some tips, programs I follow etc. I am NOT a fitness expert and therefore do not want to risk someone following my own personal suggestions and getting hurt. So I will show you the direct links/sites/information from the fitness Gurus and leave the rest up to you to make up your own minds about if you want to follow them or their programs. I will also talk about Food!

So, that is my basic plan! Things might change up a little but I will always keep you posted!
