Ms. Toshia – Butter Me Up Natural In Business on Maicurls

Hello Maicurlies,

It has been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to feature a beautiful natural so I am very excited to share a new “Natural In Business”with you today!

Ms. Toshia

Ms. Toshia, an extremely stunning natural business woman, is the proud owner of Butter Me Up and at such an young age (25) she has been able to achieve one part of her ultimate dreams by starting her very own business which, she endearingly refers to as her “baby”. Aside from the business aspect, Toshia has many other goals, one of them is becoming a successful performer & entertainer thanks to her singing and writing creativity, so keep an eye out for her Maicurlies and remember you read about her here when she hits the big screen! 😉

Butter Me Up came to fruition because of a number of reasons: dissatisfaction with Toshia’s previous job, her enthusiasm to create and craft things and a desire to cater to and inform consumers about “processed, synthetic ingredients & organic ingredients”.

As Maicurlies, I believe it is safe to say that you know I am crazy about natural products and Toshia’s deliciously scrumptious looking goodies are no exception (no you can not eat them)!

I am delighted to share more about the business concept of Butter Me Up and what motivated Toshia to create her company. You can read all about her story on my Feature Page here Please do not forget to check out: ButterMeUpGoods.com & browse through the store (she has a lot on the “shelf”) and I promise  they look so good you will want to eat them! 

Thank you for sharing with us Toshia! 



Ms. Sharon Njavika – AJANI Handmade Natural In Business on Maicurls

Good Morning Maicurlies,

It delights me to be able to share another Natural in Business on my Feature Page today! 


Ms. Sharon Njavika – AJANI Handmade

AJANI Handmade is a Kenyan run online store that sells two core products: a natural water- based, shea-butter based whipped moisturizer for hair and skin as well as an oil blend designed for sensitive, itchy and flaky scalp and hair care.


 The director of AJANI Handmade, a stunning naturalista herself Ms. Sharon Njavik has such a passion and drive for this new company that I can only see it developing, growing and thriving in the months and years to come. I think the aspect that most caught my attention is the fact that AJANI Handmade is much more than just selling beauty/care products. They focus on self love, confidence, wellbeing and supporting black women. 

“AJANI Handmade is a social enterprise that is grounded in perpetuating messages of beauty, worth and capacity to black women and girls. We produce and retail natural, health- conscious products that complement these messages. In an effort to take our work beyond the internet, we have collaborated with another social enterprise based in Nairobi, Kenya, AM Cafe- http://www.amcafe.org/ whose work exists to strengthen intellectual and emotional capacities to dream of a better future…over a cup of coffee and sweet pastries.

We joint efforts to host a 2 of a 3 part informal dialogue series where we bring together women from diverse socio-economic backgrounds to discuss and analyse “how self- image affects our interactions in social and economic spaces.” More about this series can be found under the “Dialogue series” section on our blog- http://www.ajanihandmade.com/blog/


While at the moment AJANI Handmade has focused on producing and selling two core products they do plan on expanding their products as well as reaching out further in the market by making them available Internationally. Apart from their products, AJANI Handmade also seeks to be a source of information, teaching and learning therefore if any of you are interested to contribute your knowledge and experience please do reach out to them on www.ajanihandmade.com/blog!

I am excited to share the story and business concept of AJANI Handmade which you can read on my Feature Page here. Please do not forget to check out: www.ajanihandmade.com it is a beautiful site with really great products! 

Thank you for sharing with us Sharon!
