This week's feature is Hollis Gray, Empowerment Coach and Founder of Holistree.
March is Magical Black Girl Month here at Black Girl Bliss! This month, I wanted to feature real magical black girls - wise, wild, witchy, and unapologetic about their melanated magic.
Each lady featured will answer seven questions that illustrate their personal journey to their spiritual paths and what it means to be a magical black girl!
This one might get a little graphic. Oh well. We're friends, right?
It's no secret that women have been looking for alternatives to the pads and tampons we've always known due to the toxic ingredients that these products include.
Stores are picking up on this as well. There is a whole new crop of products in the aisle that used to only house the Always, Kotex, Tampax, etc. These new products claim to provide more sustainable, natural ways to help a woman through her monthly cycle. There are cloth pads, natural cotton tampons, and cute panties that double as pads. I was intrigued by the cups.
In this new year, I've committed to finding more natural and non-toxic ways of being and living. So, of course, I plan to share my adventures with you. Ready to get real close and personal??
My first adventure started at the end of last year. I have always, ALWAYS, had issues with finding deodorant that could handle my B.O. (TMI? Oh well. It's only going to get worse.)
Happy New Year, Bliss Bae!
We made it out of 2016 and we're off to 2017 with new goals, dreams, and drive.
I would be willing to bet money that you or someone you know has created a vision board to illustrate these new desires. And while that's real cute, and the intention behind creating them is powerful, there's one thing you should understand about how to use your vision board to manifest the things you want.
The day is upon us. The day that reminds unattached people that they might be perpetually single. The day that couples prepare for for months. The day that all your social media looks like red and pink and hearts and roses and dates and engagements and on and on and on for a full 36 hours.
Before this begins, just know that this is not a cry to be vegan or vegetarian or anything else. You eat what you want to eat. This post is simply asking you to be aware of the effect of certain foods on your body.
Raise your hand (literally or figuratively) if you deal with the following physical issues:
- Dry, itchy skin
- Runny/Stuffed nose
- Abdominal pain
- Menstrual cramps
What if I told you that these issues could be lessened or completely diminished just by changing the way you eat?
So you’re here. You’ve hit the point where you’re just like “WTF is going on?!” You’re unhappy, unimpressed, and underwhelmed. But why? What is it that’s going wrong and what can you do to make this better? Cuz this sucks.
Here are ten culprits that could be the reason for your life’s suck factor. And because it is completely unhelpful to point out what’s wrong without offering a solution, there are also ten relatively quick fixes for each problem.
