DIY Whipped Shea Butter

Hiya Lovelies!
I decided to make my very first whipped shea butter blend the other day

I normally use raw shea butter straight from the container 
but the last tub I ordered came in blocks rather than filling the jar, making it harder for me to use even with oil on my fingers

So I decided to take the plunge and do a whip!
Now I've seen most people use a hand blender and I don't have one, so I went searching for the method that would work best with a whisk.
I used this method from LabMuffin here

Updated Regimen - Fall/Winter


One should always have some form of regimen for their hair
Something. it doesn't have to be strict, but a pattern you know works for your tresses and keeps them in tip top shape.
Mine hasn't really changed and I did touch on it a bit in the Fall Products but here are pics from a wash day of mine

Daily Fix of Hair

Today's fix is a throwback of Moi
The year was 2010.. sometime in the Summer
think this was an old bantu knot out .. like ooold.

Daily Fix of Hair

Today's fix is from a month ago
I think this is an old twist out.
If it is the twist out I'm thinking of, it was done with Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk on wet hair
that's it!

#Fall4P31 Challenge - Update

Hiya Lovelies!
If you've been following me on Instagram, you have seen that I'm currently in the throes of the Fall For Proverbs 31 Woman Challenge.
I invited others to join in but it's really only been my sister, myself
and a lovely Youtube subscriber of mine. (S/o to SapphiraNew :)

Now as I'm in it.. it's really a daunting task.
Reading the chapters daily isn't as hard because I have my sister alongside with me.
(we tend to post the same verses and similar hairstyles too)
Speaking of hairstyles, that is the part I am finding difficult.
If you prance about through my blog you will notice I really just wear my hair out most of the times
A bun drops in the mix a lot of the times and maybe some twists..
It's only day 9 and i feel stuck :|
iIalso feel like a self crowned selfie queen because I post a pic daily of my hair
I try not to include my face on some because I really don't want my IG to become selfie land

If you wanna see the pics, find me @CandidCinni :)

Artiste Spotlight - Mapei

Haven't done one of these in a proper minute
but today's spotlight is on Mapei

I came across her through my Flipboard app. I saw that pic and thought "who is this chick with the luscious curls??" 
Tap on the article and find out she's a singer who just released a single 'Don't Wait'
In doing more research to find more songs (and pics of her hair)
found out she was an "Artist to watch" in the LATimes in 2009
Somehow she dropped off the radar and now she's back 

This Rhode Island born, Swedish bred woman has an infectious voice and the track is one that I shall have on repeat. I really am hoping to see an EP or mix tape from her soon as I feel it will be something great.
Get into it below. Enjoy =)
