2013 In Review!

A very big HELLO to the posh fraternity! Wow, it’s been a while since I posted on the blog for various reasons. In 2013, I took more of a back seat with my blog as I ventured into new territories. Mainly due to starting  The Black Soap Company, juggling being a single mother and doing various freelance journalism work. On a personal level, I ceased publishing my fashion looks as I decided to change my image and return to embracing my natural hair. My former ‘relaxed’ hair image that frequented this site no longer reflected the person I was and am becoming (getting slightly philosophical)..anyway to cut a long story short – I will be updating this blog more often, with more fashion looks that show my new and better image..and a little something more. I hope you all continue to enjoy and support the Posh Yardie journey.

  3.  Using the wooden spatula provided, apply a thin layer of the clay paste to your entire face and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes or until the clay dries. However, do not allow it to dry out too much.
  4. Rinse the mask off with warm water and then apply a thin layer of the pure cocoa butter provided to moisturise and fade blemishes. Your skin will feel fresh, revitalized, and clean and will generally look younger due to the clay’s lifting effect.

What is Shea Butter?

Have you ever wanted to know the secret to beautiful skin? Well look no further than the intensely rich moisturising qualities of pure unrefined Shea butter form the UK’s leading suppliers The Black Soap Company.

What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is the secret beauty treasure that has been extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) by African women for centuries. The Shea nut produces an ivory or yellow coloured fat that is then extracted and put through a traditional process of boiling and kneading to produce our luxuriously creamy and intensely moisturising, unrefined Shea butter. The cosmetics industry have been using Shea butter in many of our skin and hair products for decades and it is also a substitute used in the chocolate and food industry in place of cocoa butter. However, the Shea butter that  is used in the products of most mainstream cosmetic brands has been heavily refined, filled with chemicals and stripped of its natural minerals and properties and thus has little benefit to the user.

The Black Soap Company’s organic unrefined Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, D, F and E, and has the most  unique anti-ageing, healing and moisturising properties to keep your skin feeling revitalised, nourished and silky smooth all day.

What can Shea Butter Be Used For?

Beyoncé 2013 World Tour Ban

The queen has spoken, so ‘Bow Down Bitches!’ Yes, it is true, Beyoncé has indeed banned all professional photographers from her Mrs Carter World Tour, which kicked off in London at the O2 last night. Much to her dismay I will assume, ‘unofficial’ pictures have already surfaced on Twitter and Instagram from her fans.

Ahead of her 2013 world tour, Beyoncé’s PR folks announced that photographers would not be accredited, however they could download any of the six, yes just six, approved photos such as the following: Although tickets for the Mrs Carter World Tour stated that no cameras or recorders were allowed into the venue, the O2′s standard camera policy means that all audience members were allowed to bring compact cameras into last night’s gig. So, sorry Bey here are some of pictures you might wish to turn a blind eye to.
