Hair Product Review: Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding With Shea Argan No Sulfates No Parabens

Image
Hair products are one of the most popular items that I review, so today, I will be reviewing one by a popular brand that is well-known for their natural curly hair products; they make perms that are quite popular among Black women, so I am very familiar with this brand because my family used to perm my hair years ago. I haven't permed my hair in over 2 years now though, so I am curious how this product will work on my hair. We shall see 😫.

Cost: This hair product is inexpensive. It costs $5-$7 a piece depending on where you buy it.

Ingredients: This hair product is full of natural herbal and organic ingredients, which I love. Considering how inexpensive it is, it is amazing that it has so many good ingredients in it.


Here is the full ingredient list:

Brand Promises: This brand promises that this hair product will define and lengthen curls; that it will control frizz and add shine, body, and softness; that it will deeply moisturize your hair and make it more manageable, and that it wi…

Product Review: Natural Herbal Elle 18 Kajal Eyeliner मेकअप आईलाइनर की समीक्षा - काजल आईलाइनर

Image
It is time for another of my favorite products to review: kajal liners. The kajal liner that I will review today is the Elle 18 kajal eyeliner.

Cost: Kajal eyeliners cost between $5-$6 a piece.

Packaging: I love the packaging on this kajal! The girl design on the front of it is so cute 😍! Kajals usually never have such a cute detailed design on them, so I really appreciate packaging like this. The packaging and the kajal feels very sturdy as well. 

Smudgeproof: It is not smudgeproof so you will need to smudgeproof it. It smudges very quickly on the lower lashline, so you need to set it quickly with powder. In just the time that it took me to apply mascara, this kajal smudged a few times in different places on the lower lashline, so it smudges really really fast. 



Waterproof: Getting it wet lightens the color a bit, but it is still really black and the kajal stays on. Wetting it changes the color to a more matte appearance, but when it does not get wet, it looks more glossy black. If you …

My Top Best Favorite Japanese Desserts, Wines, and Sweets - Great Foods & Drinks From Japan 日本デザート, ワイン, アイスクリーム, 食べ物

Image
We all love sweets, and though some of us have more of a sweet tooth than others, it still feels good to eat fresh desserts. So today, I will share with you all my favorite sweets from japan 🗾; my favorite desserts 🍨, fruits 🍑, and wines 🍷from Japan 🎎.


Tempura Ice Cream 🍰 天ぷらアイスクリーム
Tempura ice cream is amazing! Every time I go to a restaurant, and I have a sweet tooth, I order tempura ice cream. Tempura ice cream tastes like a mix of cake and ice cream; it has a soft center with ice cream that is still cold or warm, and then a crispy outer part that tastes like cake batter, but it is not overly sweet. 

Tempura ice cream can be eaten by itself, or you can order banana 🍌tempura ice cream, which comes with a fried banana in the center, and ice cream on the outside to eat with it. 



Tempura ice cream can be made with various ingredients including: Banana バナナ, vanilla ice cream バニラアイスクリーム, pound cake パウンドケーキ, chocolate syrup チョコレートシロップ, flour 粉, egg 卵, wafer cookies ウェーハクッキー, whipped cre…

Japanese Style BBQ Barbecue, Food, Sushi Event At The SCETA Japan Center 日本バーベキュー, 寿司, 食べ物 On The University of Maryland College Campus

Image
A few months back, I brought a small group of about 4 people, including a good friend of mine named Takeshi, to a very fun Japanese cultural language exchange and food barbecue event organized by an organization called the SCETA Japan Center

The SCETA Japan center is located on my college's College Park campus. I graduated from The University of Maryland University College (UMUC). I only went onto the College Park campus a few times for tests, and though I knew that UMUC had a Japanese language program (since I took one semester in Japanese there), I did not know that the SCETA Japan Center was there on campus. If I had known about it before graduation, I would have come onto campus much more often 😁.


The SCETA Japan Center has conversational Japanese language and practice classes📚, as well as events 🎊. I attended their Japanese barbecue event, but just recently, they had their summer classes for kids. 

The host of the SCETA Japan Center, Chika-san, organized the event, and it w…

Dangers of Swimming Pools - Diseases Illnesses Found In Pool Water & How To Prevent Them - Safe Ways To Enjoy The Pool This Summer

Image
During the summer ☀, pools are swamped with people, and for good reason. There is nothing quite like a dip in pool water on hot summer days. Unfortunately though, people like me who are sensitive, may not be able to enjoy pools as much as others. The reason for this is because the huge amount of bacteria found in them. 


When I was a little girl 👧, every time my mother would take me to the pool, I would come home with a painful ear👂infection that would last for days. So over time, I eventually stopped getting into pools all together; instead, I would use a blow up pool as a child, and when I became a teen, I prefered to read while my friends swam in the pool.

I am not the only one I met who got sick after hopping into a pool; it is just that many people do not connect the illnesses that follow a day in the pool. So today, I will teach you all about the kinds of bacteria that can be found in pools, and the symptoms that come with them.
