” Nobody but you is responsible for your life. You are responsible for your life. What is your life? What is all life? What is every flower, every rock, every tree? Energy.

Quick Kisses of the week:: Oprah | Bethenny Frankel | Memorial Day

Oprah Giving her last lesson as a "teacher" on the Oprah Winfrey Show

So, this week, the world was all a buzz about the final Oprah Show. I laughed, danced, and cried at the farewell performances. I was doing the ugly cry when Aretha Franklin sang ‘Amazing Grace’ . That was by far my most favorite moment of the celebs.

Oprah’s last show was more like a lesson to me, life lessons. I have now watched that episode 5 times.  She spoke about taking responsibility for our lives, our energy, aha moments, whispers of God, and so much more. If you’ve not seen it, find someone who has it on TiVo or DVR, grab a pen and paper to take notes, and watch it like your life depends on it. I’m not being dramatic, it really is THAT good. :-)

If you’ve already seen it, let me know what you took away from it.

Another fab woman I admire made news too, it was released that Bethenny Frankel, former Real Housewife Of New York, was on the cover of Forbes Magazine.  Bethenny is known for her skinny girl margaritas and having an AMAZING brand. (herself)

I’ve watched her journey from the beginning when she was dreaming of being married, having a great business and being a mom. This woman went through it!! I mean, her , then,  boyfriend rejected her, a relationship with her best friend ended, she had very few people show up at events she was holding.

I often felt sorry for her but deep down knew she’d make it.  She kept at it. Recently, she sold part of her business for a reported $100 Million dollars. That’s not including her endorsements.

I’m so proud of Bethenny, as if she was a very good friend. She is such a source of inspiration for me. Congratulations, Bethenny!!

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Thank you to all who died protecting our freedom. You are gone but not forgotten.

Natural Hair:: Review|Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Conditioner

SUAVE Professionals Almond and Shea Butter

Heey!! I hope you are all enjoying your journeys and your hair is  loving the spring weather!!

I tried a new product and was pleasantly surprised. First off, my hair was beyond dirty, it was down right grimey. :) I bought the Suave Professionals as a “cheapie” conditioner as a pre-poo/detangling. I was not expecting much from the product.

I applied conditoner to my “grimey” hair ( see the pictures). My hair immediately soaked it up. I left it on for at least half an hour. Within that small amount of time, my curls were beginning to pop. :) It was much thicker than the Suave conditioners I’m used to using and the smell was fantastic. My denman brush glided through my hair with this product on it.
 
All in all, Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter conditioner was a thick, moisturizing product. It rinsed easily from my hair. I allowed it to dry a little before I shampooed but my hair was super soft. I will add this to my product arsenal.
 
Have you tried the Suave Professionals line? What did it do for your hair?
