2014 The Year Where I’ll Do Everything

There are so many things I want to do with my life. Depending on the day if you ask me, “What would you like to do with your life?” I might provide you with a different answer. Last month I decided to stop waiting on the perfect conditions to make things happen with my life. I started by selling my natural products and developing my own brand Devine Organics  and of course this journey isn’t easy. I’m putting myself out there, I’m trying to figure out who I want to be, and what stories I want to share.

I’ve also decided to continue writing but I’ll also start sharing my stories on this blog. I want this blog to include more if my life. I want to share more not just health or natural beauty. I’m not sure which day of the week it will be but I’m going to start weekly creative writing posts. It could be a story or a writing exercise I’m using and want to share.

There’s so much to do and I can’t wait anymore.

Big News…Body Scrubs!!!!!!!

So I have big news…

Lavender Mint Scrub with Himalayan Pink Salt

Who doesn’t love body scrubs? You ever feel your skin after using them? It feels so amazing and soft but a lot of the scrubs you buy in stores contain more chemicals than ingredients to keep you and your skin healthy.

Remember this post Why Are All Natural Products so expensive? Click the link to refresh your memory.

Are you done reading? Do you like the idea? For those of you that didn’t click the link let me clue you in. I’m starting my own line of affordable natural products. When I say affordable I mean $20 will get you multiple products not just the conditioner and some some change. I’m in the development stages which means I can’t offer any trials yet…If you’re a blogger email me so you can help me get the products out there by trying it and telling others how you like or love it.

When I say natural products I mean it. No chemicals to strip your hair, no silicones to coat your hair and block moisture. I want you have healthy hair. Your hair can grow, your hair can be healthy you just have to treat it right.

Heat can’t tame the mane.

I need your help. Since this line is for you. I need your input. Please answer the questions below in the comment section it will benefit you trust me.

 

 

 

1. Do you know your hair’s porosity? (High, regular, low) Hair porosity test.

2. Do you have any allergies to any oils, butters, or anything that’s used in hair products?

3. What is your biggest hair problem? (Moisture retention, length retention, styling etc…)

It’s All Buttah Giveaway !!!!!

It’s giveaway time. My last giveaway must not have appealed to you because only one person entered and she of course won. I’m hoping more of you will like this one. Remember a while back I reviewed a butter line for skin? No? Ok well here’s my It’s All Buttah review. I discovered this line while looking for natural products that wouldn’t hurt my pockets. Please go on It’s All Buttah’s website and take a look around. You can choose your butter, which is amazing because she offers a variety and if you have a nut allergy you have options.

The winner of this giveaway will be receiving a gift that Kesha (the owner of It’s All Buttah) is putting together so you should feel special.

To enter you have to only do two things:

Goals for LifeWithDemetra

Hello,

Sorry I’ve taken a little break. I still plan to do the other two giveaways one will be some body butters from It’s All Buttah and the butter trio set from Butters-n-Bars. I had a lot going on and unfortunately and had to put everything on hold. I’ll be putting the giveaways up as soon as I can so please be patient.

I also wanted to talk a little about my goals for this site.

– I want to talk about more than health and hair.

– I want to do a health series, a hair series, and a writing series.

– Eventually I’ll get up to five posts a week.

– Each day will be a different topic.

– I’ll work on video for the tutorials.

Right now it seems like my site is all over the place. I just need to get a bit more organized. I’m still looking Guest Bloggers and please look for my posts on UntouchMyHair.

Thank you,

Demetra

Updates and Giveaways !!!

Untouch My Hair

Untouch My Hair

This post is just an update of my goals for the site, upcoming giveaways, and a new partnership.

It might seem like my posts are all over the place but that’s not the case. When I first started blogging it wasn’t just one topic I wanted to cover. I wanted to document my journey through life (hair and health), share my stories with an audience, and let others do the same. In the beginning it seemed as if I was all about hair or all about health but I really want the site to be more than a hair site or a fitness site and in time I’m hoping you all will see.

Reminder the prompt challenge ends June 25th. Please email your submission to LifeWithDemetra@gmail.com and I’ll be posting some on the site.

I’m excited to announce that I will be writing and partnering with a natural hair site UntouchMyHair. My BC story is on their site and I’m really excited about the partnership look for a giveaway (or three) really soon. Please go on the site if you want to learn more and of course I’ll be writing for them and sharing with on this site.

Speaking of giveaways I have some very special giveaways coming up very soon :). I won’t say what they are but I will say this there’s another Tropical Traditions giveaway and there will be two butter giveaways. Stay tuned, subscribe, and keep up with us so you don’t miss out. If you know of some natural hair lines I should try please comment them below or send me an email I’m actively looking for new lines.

Lastly (I know you’re sick of reading) I’ll be doing a smoothie cleanse soon. I’ve posted many different Green Smoothie recipes but you can never have enough. I’ll be posting the recipes and I can’t promise daily updates but I will try. Join me if you can. Here’s a site I found that has 25 different detox smoothie recipes.
