Savvy Product: Organix Coconut Conditioner


I went natural a few years ago, so I'm always on the look out for products to keep my hair healthy and happy. I love coconut oil and I use it after I condition my hair to lock in moisture. We'll the other day at Wal mart I saw this "Nourishing Coconut Milk" conditioner by Organix and I had to try it. Some of the key ingredients are silk amino acids, jojoba oil, coconut oil, organic coconut milk, panthenol, egg white protein and vitamin e. My hair actually felt softer and had less tangles than it normally does. It may not be one of my staple products, but I did like the way my hair felt, so we'll see.

Ingredients:Water, cetyl alcohol, behentrimonium, cetearyl alcohol, cetearyl glucoside, glyceryl stearate, glycerin, cyclomethicone, dimethicone, jojoba oil, panthenol, silk amino complex, coconut milk, egg white protein, coconut oil, vitamin e, tetrasodium EDTA, fragrance, dmdm hydantoin, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone.

Available at Wal mart: 13 fl.oz for 6.99

Birthstone Style: The Sophisticated Sapphire





To all the Savvy Sistahs who have birthdays in September your birthstone is the "Sophisticated Sappphire". The sapphire is available in a variety of shades (pink, orange and lavender) however the deep blue shade is the most well known and desired. The word sapphire originated from the Greek word 'Sapphirus" which means blue. When you think of the color blue, you may picture a blue sky or an ocean but the color can also be associated with faith, wisdom, trust and loyalty. The largest sapphire is 563 carats and it's called "The Star of India".  You share your birthday month with Savvy Celebrities like Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Anika Noni Rose, Serena Williams and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Take a look at some of these sapphire inspired looks and have a Happy Birthday!

Savvy Cuisine: Strawberry Shortcake


I love,love,love (did I say love) strawberries and one of my favorite quick deserts is "Strawberry Shortcake". All you will need is three items that you can find at any grocery store. First you need pound cake, (you can buy a loaf or the cake already cut in slices). Next you will need frozen strawberries, (I like these because they have a little sugar added). And the last item you will need is fat free whipped cream, (so you can eat as much as you want).Not only is it quick and easy, but it's inexpensive and a dessert that the whole family can enjoy. It's berry good!

On the Cover: Gabourey Sidibe


Oscar nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe has been chosen as one of Elle Magazines up and coming 25-somethings to watch in Hollywood. This 27 year old actress became an over-night success after her outstanding performance in the movie Precious. After much controversy concerning her weight, many people in the fashion industry (along with Howard Stern) said that she would never be on the cover of a top fashion magazine. We'll all they have to do is pick up the October issue of Elle and they'll see just how wrong they were. Congratulations Gabby! You are so "Precious"!
