Himalayan Bath Salts and its Benefits

Anita Moore

The Purest Bath Crystals for the Purest Cleansing Himalayan bath salts are famous worldwide for their purity and beauty, and in the Himalayas they often go by the name of "white gold". Having formed in the Himalayan mountains over what is believed to be the last 250 million years, the crystals are incredibly pure and virtually untouched by pollutants and toxins. For thousands of years the salt has been used in baths, body scrubs, drinks, and foods and has been praised for its medicinal properties and unique taste. Pakistan.

Himalayan salt contains 84 minerals that balance and detoxify the body; these minerals include iron, copper, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. When you bathe in the salts these minerals are absorbed through the skin and can help to improve immunity, reduce stress, improve heart health, relieve headaches and depression.

You can also eat Himalayan rock salt! Because Himalayan sea salt is completely unprocessed and free of any additives, the pure taste and abundant minerals make this salt both more flavorful and healthier than processed salts. Himalayan salt optimizes the flavor of food, allowing you to experience the real, full-taste of food. It doesn't taint food with an acrid, salty bitterness like more standard salts.

For Skincare:
The minerals and nutrients in Himalayan salts work to cleanse and beautify the skin. As you bathe you'll notice your skin becoming smoother, softer, and cleaner than ever before. Himalayan salts have been used to treat dry skin, acne, psoriasis; insect bites or blisters; joint diseases such as arthritis and rheumatism; water retention and premenstrual symptoms; stress and insomnia.

To Use: Just put a handful of salts in your bath when you start the water running. Stay in the tub for about 30 minutes and towel dry your body. If you take your bath before bedtime you will have an incredibly restful sleep as the salts help to encourage deep sleep and reduce stress.

 

Stevie J marries Faith Evans

Anita Moore

Don't know if the gossip is true or not, but I'm blown away. With all the drama going on on the RHOA I'm surprised that Faith would stoop to marrying the culprit Stevie J and all his drama. I love me some Stevie but he carries unbelievable baggage and he can't keep his hands off his artist. All I can say to the lovely Ms. Faith Evans, keep your eyes open, stay protected and Good Luck. That's all folks!

CONDITIONING YOUR LOCS

Anita Moore

I'm new to this recent wave of locing by using the sistaloc method. I was only 1 year in loc'd and I just combed them all out and reloc'd using what I call the semi-interlocing method sistaloc method. I've been locing other people's hair for years after taking classes with Annu Prestonia's (Khamit Kinks) braiding and locing class many moons ago in which I drove all the way from New York to Chicago, and it was well worth it every hour and every moment of my time. 

Anywho I've done a lot of research, watched a lot of video's to get myself updated on loc'ing and the following brother was one of the video's which I agreed with the most with a little disagreements here and there, I liked his methods but didn't agree with all his theories on hair care, but I will say eveyone has their own many theories. We have well trained and some kitchen stylist all with their own method's. Check out this brother's theory.

Anita Moore

Couldn't post the the video with this woman "The Detox Goddess" talking about the Pearls, but here's the link if you're interested and there's plenty of post on Youtube showing the usage of the pearls.

Here's a point of view that disclaims the use of the vaginal detox and answers pertinent questions involved in placing this item inside your body. Check it out

I'm posting this because I think its in our best interest as women to understand our bodies, do our research and know whats going in and whats coming out. Our bodies naturally detoxes and cleanses itself but there is more involved with the detox pearl. It proports to remove toxins and draw out impurities from other surrounding parts of the inside, so try it for yourself, do your research and tell me what the outcome is. Let's share and get healthy together. 

I'm a scardy cat so I'll just stick to the steaming.

 

 

Debra Lee Steps Down

Debra L. Lee has stepped down from all of her roles at Black Entertainment Television (BET). The network had announced back in December that she would no longer serve as president. It was just announced that Lee will also resign as Chairman and CEO. 

“I have spent more than 20 years leading this incredible enterprise and I am so proud of the BET team and all that we have accomplished,” said Lee in a statement. “As I look to the future, I believe it is the right time to take a step back from day-to-day responsibilities at BET.”

Scott M. Mills has been tapped to take her place as President.

Mills has served as executive vice president and chief administrative officer at BET’s parent company, Viacom, since 2015, where he oversees human resources, real estate, and facilities and security. In his new role, he will be responsible for running overall strategy and all day-to-day operations, including oversight of programming, ad sales, and digital teams. He will also work closely with BET General Manager Michael Armstrong, who will report directly to him, and Lee, who will act as an advisor.

“BET has consistently produced exciting, thought-provoking content, shaping culture and conversation with African Americans and young audiences around the world. I am honored to work alongside Debi, Michael, and the incredible team at BET as we accelerate the network’s evolution across film, digital, and live experiences,” said Mills in a statement.

Betty Boop (Black?)

Anita Moore

PBS has confirmed that Betty Boop, the popular cartoon character introduced to the world by cartoonist Max Fleischer in 1930, was actually inspired by a real-life African American jazz singer and entertainer from Harlem named Esther Jones.

Her stage name was "Baby Esther", but unfortunately, when her character become the first and most famous sex symbol in animation... she was whitewashed with most people having no idea where the original inspiration came from.

Baby Esther had a popular cabaret act at the infamous Cotton Club in Harlem, New York where she sang with a unique vocal style that featured “boop-boop-a-doops” and other similar scat sounds. That very same style was heavily imitated by the Betty Boop animated character.

Initially, Betty Boop was shown in cartoons as an African American woman. She appeared in at least one animated scene in the popular Popeye The Sailor Man series. But soon after, she was transformed into a white woman and remained so until her character was finally retired. It's estimated that the Betty Boop franchise generated millions of dollars in revenue from televison networks and sales of merchandise.

Meanwhile, the very woman who inspired the character, Baby Esther, was never compensated in any way. In fact, she never even really achieved mainstream success. During her entire career, she was mostly only known locally in the New York City area, and she reportedly died at a very young age.

She is, however, mentioned in many documentaries and books about the Harlem Renaissance, and her legendary way of singing does live on in the iconic Betty Boop character.

Racism at it's best in America!

Anita Moore

It's such a shame and its so hurtful to see the mindset of the white diaspora when they come into contact with a person of color. Still today RACISM EXIST and stronger than ever. I can't compare it to slavery or even to the struggles that led minority americans demand their freedom. I can only say what my people are going through right now and these video's are a prime example. There needs to be a huge conversation going on worldwide and to all backgrounds because its getting worse and needs to be stopped.

Secondly changes within the judicial system must be eradicated. Change is a must.
