Coconut Oil Craze

I’ve always been a big advocate for baby oil and all it’s wonders but it seems like my favorite moisturizer is being replaced these days with the magical oil of coconut. One tub of this stuff can be used for everything from hair conditioner to add sheen, to the best skin moisturizer/softener in the biz.

Apply this the same way you would baby oil in the shower while still wet for the softest skin you never knew you had! Not to mention you can cook with it too! Also a fun fact about this product is that it whitens teeth! “Coconut pulling” is becoming the latest and greatest. Swish with the oil for 20 minutes daily to whiten those chompers and naturally pull bacteria from the mouth.

This is my new one stop shop product! Happy basting!

90-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein arrested for peacefully protesting today in Ferguson. You can help get her and others out (@AwkwardDuck, @GeekNStereo, and some I’m less familiar with, Twitter-wise) by donating to #OperationHelpOrHush. They are not only raising money to bail out peaceful protestors, but they use all funds to help the community and bring them food, water, medical aid, gas masks, and other equipment to help them not die during this terrible time. Follow @SheSeauxSaditty for more info.

National Callout for solidarity with #fergusonrebellion. Wednesday, August 20th. Hands up, Turn up!

“Another Black man dead. This would be just another day like every other day in America, if it weren’t for one simple fact: Ferguson turned out, stood up, and has refused to get back on its knees.


Mike Brown was days away from college? Don’t care.

Didn’t he steal some cigars? Don’t care.

What about the looters? Don’t care.

Mike Brown was black, guilty of only this, which made him guilty of all else: (jay)walking while black, (back)talking while black, breathing while black. Black like Oscar Grant, black like Kathryn Johnson, black like Renisha Mcbride, black like Eric Garner, like Rodney King, like Emmett Till. All black, and all guilty.

Mike Brown’s life was of value–is of value. Full stop. No college degree makes that so; no robbery takes that away. The people of Ferguson recognize this. White supremacy’s subtle baiting of thievery, college degrees and saggy pants and talking back does not.

We talk back. We turn up. We stand tall. With Ferguson–for Mike, for every black body in America robbed of its right to live–for every injustice that we are growing sick and tired of. We are done with your police/media slander campaigns. We are sick with anger.

It is too late for containing it.

Not another. Not another. Not one more. 

We will turn down for nothing until justice is ours.

I find this image by my friend Cleon Peterson to be quite poignant for the moment. I hope America takes a long, hard and honest look at itself.
