The Secret to Beauty…Oneness

Posted in Uncategorized on June 2, 2008 by sisterspeakonline

Dafina K with pythonI asked my stunningly beautiful & daringly adventurous cousin Dafina– who’s sporting a live python in the photo–and whose spirit and aura command attention when she enters a room, what her secret to beauty is.

In her ever so calm & goddess-like manner, she replied…

If I were to have a secret, it’s to keep clearing myself of all grudges and being truthful with me. I am continually unfolding and becoming what my soul came here for me to fulfill…oneness with all life.

I was really asking how it is she remains so radiant and vivacious at all times, how she keeps her hair and skin glowing and healthy, and her frame so fit. But the answer she offered is far more relevant.

Beauty truly begins within and is determined, I think, by the condition of our inner selves and the strength of our connection with the wholeness of life around us.

It’s so like Dafina, a holistic health practitioner & acupuncturist, to take me to the essence of the matter!

Thanks cuz!

SmellGoods ’98 Lives Up to Its Name!

Itiel McVay, Owner SmellGoods \'98SisterSpeak Online was fortunate enough to cross paths with savvy sisterpreneur Itiel McVay, a beauty mixologist who whips up sweet soothing potions via her company SmellGoods ’98!  Itiel started SmellGoods ’98 in 1998 (hence the name) with the help of her husband and soul mate who drives the tech/media side of the business. 

But the real story is in the products that truly live up to their name! When her package arrived in our PO Box we could smell them before we tore the box open!  And to our heart’s content, the products make you feel as wonderful as they smell. Did I mention the beautiful packaging and cowrie-shell adorned containers???

The scrubs, cleansers, smoothers, and moisturizers, among a smorgasbord of other goodies, are super yummy and all handmade with great care and only natural ingredients.

Definately worth a try! A true SisterSpeak Online favorite!   

When Bleached Blond is RIGHT!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 31, 2008 by sisterspeakonline

Woman with bleach blond locsI’m not usually a fan of bleached blond hair. The chemical process of bringing black/brown hair up to this shade of ‘white’ blond (aided by natural graying I’m sure) is very hard on our hair. Then there are the fatal hair-skin tone mismatches that so many women fall victim to–sometimes unknown to them but obvious to the observer. There’s a right way to go blond if one chooses, and a very WRONG way to go blond.

BUT there are exeptions! This woman certainly got it right with the help of stylists at Hair Dare You Salon in Chicago, Illinois! She’s absolutely stunning and the hair-skin contrast works beautifully for her. You agree?

Afro Woman by Endia SummerSisters:

I came across this BEAUTIFUL painting pic created by a very talented 22-year old sister-artist Endia Summer. It’s called Afro Woman and personifies natural, confident beauty. I recall a time in college when my hair was actually this big after over 2 years of exclusively wearing braids. Just a little inspiration to get us talking beauty!  –Lisa
