February Bougie Babe Challenge

Hey Babes!

Happy Black History month! It is time for the newest challenge of the month. I thought long about this challenge, which is why it took me until now to announce it. I didn’t know if I wanted to combine black history with Valentine’s Day festivities. However, I felt that it would be too obvious. I want to create challenges that better my reader and myself. This month’s challenge is to enjoy love. Once a week, complete an activity that you love to do. I know it’s sounds easy, but life can get in the way of our alone time. Spend time with yourself while reading a book; cleaning the house; writing a poem, or trying new recipes. I will be posting one lucky winner on February 28th and the winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Here are the rules:

  1. You must be following my blog, Bougie Babe and following me @ken.monet on Instagram.
  1. Challenger must upload a picture each week of them enjoying the activity they love with the hashtag #BougieBabeChallenge by February 27th at 11:59 pm.
  1. The activity must be completed in February OF 2019! Do NOT upload a picture of an old vacation or activity you completed a long time ago.
  1. Comment on this post once you have uploaded your picture with your email address.

Take Care of Your Creativity

Hey Babes!

Recently, I suffered from writer’s block.  I couldn’t think of any topics to discuss with my readers; it frustrated me that I didn’t post on the blog.  I tried to think of different recipes, self-care topics, and inspirational talks to help my audience get through the day.  It became harder and harder to sit in front of my laptop and write.  My fingertips struggled to glide across my keyboard; I was in a rut.  I realized one night that I forgot to take care of my creativity.

What does “taking care of my creativity” mean?  It means to plant the ideas swarming the mind, water the ideas with perseverance and passion, and continue to care for those creative ideas.   Creativity is a muscle. We need to exercise our creativity for it to grow and flourish.  We exercise our brain everyday to solve equations, memorize important detail, and gain knowledge.  But we forget, logic is equally important as art; we need both to survive.  Take time out of your day to do something creative.  Paint for an hour, dance in some loungewear, practice singing in a different range, write your feelings in a notebook until you can’t anymore; exercise your creative muscle.  Remember to nourish your creative garden.

There will be obstacles along the way.  That is normal.  You might doubt your craft, but don’t let negativity ruin the garden.  I learned a lesson being away from my blog; creativity will flow when you let it.  Dabble in something new or revisit familiar ground; Do not let your artistic mind go to waste.  Go on and water your garden, pull out the weeds, plant new flowers, and watch the creativity grow.  I promise you won’t regret it.

DIY Hair Mask

Hey Babes!

Today, we are going to be dealing with our hair.  Sometimes, I wear my natural hair and other times, I wear wigs.  Some days, it is easier to wash my hair and leave the house.  Other days, I put on my wig and go.  There are people who enjoy wearing wigs and there are people who enjoy wearing their natural hair. There are differences between wigs and our natural hair, however, the two have one thing in common.  Natural hair and wigs need love.  So let’s give our hair some love!

This DIY mask will create shine and soften your hair.  The mask can be used for human hair wigs and synthetic hair wigs, as well.

Ingredients:

1 Egg

1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar

1/4 cup of Honey

1/3 cup of Warm Water

Directions:

Start by cracking the egg in a bowl and adding the apple cider vinegar and the honey.  Using a whisk, mix the ingredients together.  Afterward, add the water slowly and mix it into the blend.  Once the ingredients are combined, saturate the hair with the mask.  If you are using the mask on a wig, keep the mixture about two inches away from the wig cap.

Put on the shower cap and leave the hair mask on for 30 – 35 minutes.  Wash the mask out of the hair with your favorite shampoo and condition the hair.  Dry your natural hair with a blow dryer and let your wig air dry.  Watch your hair transform from dry and rough to shiny and soft!
