When in doubt JUST DO IT

Hey ya'll! It's been a minute since we posted but I wanted to let you know that Bariki Body Care's Blog is here and we will post more frequently. I just wanted to say something real quick that I've been learning to do more and that is when I'm in doubt about doing something, starting something and finishing something to not 2nd guess it especially if it something that I really want or want to do. When in doubt JUST DO THE DAMN THING. Stop holding on to your dreams and release them for the world to see how much of GEM you are!

Give Thanks to Family Traditions

Well, it's that time of year again where the holidays sneak up on you like a thief in the night. Although, we should celebrate family everyday, those days are extra special because those are the days when family get together the most to celebrate their time with one another. 

I remember growing up, we would get all dressed up to go to my grandparents house for dinner. It would be so fun to hear the music playing in the background, the aroma of good smelling food in the air, my cousins, brothers and I having a ball playing Nintendo. My Grandmother would 2 tables setup, one for the adults and one for us churins'. We had the best Christmas Tree! My Grandfather would get the biggest one that would go all the way up to the top of the roof. My grandmother would let us decorate it the night before too, we would add the candy canes, ornaments and sometimes chocolate...It was different but I think me and my cousin Tee would eat them as we tried to put them in the tree. There was so much joy in the house, we would eat until our hearts were content. Now we're all grown with our own families. Oh how I miss the days of going to my grandparents house during the holidays.

No Stress Zone

It's kinda of hard trying to live a stress free life...don't you agree? I mean it doesn't have to be targeted at relationships or a certain thing, it's just the everyday hustle and bustle of life. From the time I wake up in the morning until the time I'm in a deep slumber, I constantly over think about things that I really have no control over. Yes, it does leave me a little tense...okay maybe a little bit more than tensed because even though there are the same hours in a day, it just seems like there is never a enough time to do all the things that you need to get done. I keep telling myself not to stress or worry about the little things but it's kinda how my mind functions. A person who is always striving to do better and leave a mark on this earth, always has something to think about. Although, showering is a must, there are days where I might take 2 showers just to ease the tension. Take care of yourself and your mental health.

Ledisi - High...this song gets me thru my day!

Wait...Did I forget to put my body butter on?

 Fall is finally here in the Northwest! Yaaaayyyy…..naaaaay! I’m such a spring & summer baby. I mean don’t get me wrong, I totally love Fall…….colors only! I’m not ready for pumpkin spice this and that, I’m just not ready. Did you know they had the nerve to have pumpkin spice toothpaste ya’ll….like really?!? WHY??? This is also the season where people tend to “forget” to moisturize their skin...I’m one of them. I be trying to be up and out in the morning. Shower, clean teeth, clothes...and lets go! What I realized that just like the importance of drinking water, we also need to hydrate our skin. Hydration keeps our skin looking healthy and helps our skin cells rapidly repair itself. So go ahead and lather up with your favorite body butter to keep those skin cells happy.
