I saw this meme and I just thought why don’t I write about mangoes. Unlike bananas I totally love, mangoes are just basically a fruit for me. I love fruits guys, so I’m still showing mangoes some love.

Going Wholly Natural.

Going natural and switching to safe synthetic is a huge transition for me, my being wholly natural doesn’t stop at hair, but everything – food, creams, soaps, perfumes and working towards make-up. I now have “bad chemical-phobia”. My transition started in my room, one July morning after being exhausted with the chemicals I was using to clear my sand/sun fly bites that I got in Benin where I was visiting my cousins.
