Since I went natural...again, I've been trying a variety of new products on my hair. Some of them are misses and then we have those that are just magical; and I have found a new magical product, InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask! The InstaNatural team was kind enough to send me a few products from their line and today I'm going to tell you about their Argan Oil Hair Mask.

If you know anything about my hair routine, it's that it is hugely based on Argan Oil. Argan Oil is the HOLY grail staple of my hair routine. When I read that this hair mask has Argan Oil and other rich oils such as Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Avocado Oil, I was sold. InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask is a deep conditioning treatment that was designed to help restore dry and damaged strands into soft, shiny, healthy hair. Besides having rich oils in their ingredients its also has Japanese Green Tea and Vitamin B5. Not only does this hair mask deep conditions it also helps to strengthen hair and serves to protect against heat damage.

Happy New Year!!!!! Can you still say that two weeks after New Year's Day? None the less, I am so happy that we all made to the new year and you know that old saying "New Year, new me." well in this case I actually mean it. You are gonna see posts every week from me this year. I know that's a hard commitment but for you guys, it's a commitment I have to keep. Starting off the new year right, Saga of a Fatshionista got a blog face lift, I hope you like the new look of the blog; it's about time SOAF got a new layout. Also, I know that the Face Time series was a hit last year, so I decided to start of the new year with it. I decided to go for natural brown look. Even though Autumn is long gone, I love the colors of that season. So I hope you enjoy this look and if you have any requests for the next Face Time post, just shoot me a tweet @Its_shadae on twitter or you can email me at! Hope you enjoy!

Giving gifts is a true art.  It involves serious meditation on what you want to say and how you want to say it.  It’s similar to song writing or poetry in that way.  Anyone can give a gift and anyone can write a song, but to do either well, and in a memorable fashion is actually very hard.  What separates the art of gift giving from all other arts is that if you do it well, others will make a similar effort to do right by you in turn.  By doing your gift giving homework and showing how thoughtful you can be you will increase your gift giving karma.   It’s great for everyone involved!  The most important part of gift giving isn’t the amount of money your spend, it’s all about the sentiment that goes along with it.  That’s why the meditation beforehand can be so helpful.  I like to really think of what my “gift victim” is like.  What he or she needs, rather than what he or she wants.  Though the following ideas might not be right for your special someone, I’ll let you know why they might be.
