Product Review: Elasta QP

Today I would like to share my opinion of the Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter.  I had the opportunity to try this product when I won a giveaway on

I heard about the product from other naturals and couldn't wait to give it a try.  This product was used on my hair ax well as  Miss Tia's. 

 I decided to use the product on wet hair to do a two strand twist out after a washing & conditioning it.  I liked the consistency and the way if seem to incorporate moisture into each strand. The twists were beautifully defined and frizz was no where to be found.  The only problem I had with this product was the scent.  It was just unpleasant to me and seem to linger everywhere I went. My husband found the scent overwhelming but Miss Tia did not.   The price point is about $7 and I would say its worth the cost. There was no need for additional oils or anything with this butter. If the scent was changed I would add to my arsenal but I don't want my husband to tell me my hair stinks. I would give this product a 6 only because I won't buy it. If the smell is pleasant to you then this will probably be a 9 for you especially in the colder months.

*Miss Tia used the butter with a 2 strand twists in Bantu Knots*

Love is in the air..Naturally!

Valentine's Day (Thursday February 14th) is almost here and I wanted to surprise my husband with something different.  I wanted to make this Valentine's Day one that we could really enjoy each another and bond intimately. Now don't worry this post isn't X-rated...but with the stress of everyday life, kids, and schedules sometimes we forget how important intimacy and simple gestures are.  We will be married 17 years this June and together 20 years so it is very easy for us to take one another for granted. I began searching the internet for gift ideas and then it came to me...I needed to reach out to my new found friend LeAnn for the ultimate sensual and seductive gift!

LeAnn has an amazing company called Jordan's Treasurers as well as a  gift for helping people create the perfect ambiance. I reached out to her and she suggested one of her Romantic Encounter Gift Sets...this was perfect! The set is made for any romantic moments you want to create so it was an ideal fit for my Valentine's Day rendezvous. The set comes in 2 sizes (small & large) and can be centered to romance a women or a man..well you both will be romanced in the end (wink)...I decided to go with the large set and the fragrance to be "Alpha" to cater to  enhancing the pleasures for my hubby...The products from Jordan's Treasures are handmade, natural and the scents are truly intoxicating so trust me you can't go wrong with this one!

I will share with you guys a video of me giving my husband the Romantic Encounter Gift Set on Valentine' Day on my YouTube channel but don't wait until then to get yours!
