Feeling The Need To Breathe Some Life Back Into This Blog

Today's title could be so many things , but the one that I chose seemed to convey the greatest reason for this post. I have allowed my blog to go by the wayside like so many others. The blog graveyard is littered with blogs that had great potential as well as those that truly should have been left alone. At the present I have no idea which category my blog falls into, but I am determined to hold onto it. This blog was of my own creation without help from tech savvy geniuses or web design giants and i am pretty proud of it. As I sit here on this early Sunday morning, the second day of my week-long vacation, I am pondering thoughts of what to do with my blog. Vision Supreme seemed a clever name at the beginning, but I seem to have lost sight of that vision. My goal was always to share what I found new and interesting and also to just express myself freely. How on Earth could I lose sight of that?? Life. That's how. I think that it is high time for clarity, revision, and just plain old honesty. Now to figure out what direction to send this blog....to be continued.....

Covergirl BlastFlipStick!

I love playing with makeup but, being a dark skinned woman it is often hard to find shades that flatter me. I was fortunate enough to be granted the opportunity to try Covegirl Blastflipstick thanks to BZZAgent (an amazing company that provides word-of-mouth advertising!!)I must say that I was blown away!! I actually received one that is just perfect for me. The Blastflipstick in Minx compliments me oh so well. I can hardly wait to search the other 13 shades to see if there is another out there just for me!! Thanks BzzAgent and Covergirl for keeping it sexy!!!

A Scentsational Experience!!

Do you know Scentsy??? I mean really, have you developed a close personal relationship with Scentsy products?? Thanks to my sister I was introduced to Scentsy over a year ago and I have been in love ever since. Truthfully, I don't believe there is a person in this world who doesn't love to have the air in their home smelling fresh and inviting. Well, I am proof positive that Scentsy is the TRUTH!!! I had the recent opportunity to try the scent of the month, Mandarin Moon. (BIG Shout-out to SmellVibes!!) It is now on my growing list of favorites. The description given by Scentsy reads:

For centuries, people have been giving the gift of juicy citrus to brighten the dark winter months. Light up this season with Mandarin Moon-spirited cinnamon and glowing ginger illuminated by sweet orange and star anise.

I placed a few cubes in my warmer and sat down with a cup of tea to let the fragrance envelope my senses so I could give my truest opinion. Mandarin Moon smells like the best cup of orange tea I've ever had. I really wanted to sip the air in my home. The mood it sparks in my home is peaceful and serene-perfect for this time of year because we all know how crazy hectic the holidays can be. Now for some even greater news. You can get this months fragrance at a 10% discount!! Stock up time!!! Scent Circles are $2.70, Scentsy Bars are $4.50, and Room Spray is $7.20!!! Also the warmer of the month is Tom. It looks so vintage, like those really great soup tureens from way back. The Tom warmer is on sale this month too at $31.50!! AWESOMENESS!!! If you are interested in purchasing, please feel free to hit my Scentsy Consultant (Also my sister) up at any of the following avenues!!!

Glade Expressions® Just Because ***GIVEAWAY ALERT***

Thanks to BzzAgent and Glade Expressions®, I had the recent opportunity to try Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser & Fragrance Mist Starter Kits for FREE!!! Who doesn't love FREE???? Any-who, I must say that finding the products in my local stores proved to be a bit of a challenge. If they weren't sold out, it was slim pickings as far as the scents were concerned. I did however locate them at my local Walmart. I picked up the Oil Diffuser in the Pineapple & Mangosteen scent and I got the Fragrance Mist Starter Kit in the Cotton & Italian Mandarin scent. (They were actually the only 2 scents they had available)The Oil Diffuser is pretty darn great!! I have it on a shelf in my dining area and I can smell it as soon as I walk into the room; so sweet and tropical!! The Fragrance Mist I have decided to keep in my bathroom and boy does it do the job!!! All things considered, I think that Glade has hit another one out of the park with these new products. And now, because I am such a generous person (also because I had a $5 off coupon printed from the the web!!) I have decided to host a small giveaway so that one lucky VisionSupreme reader can try the Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser for free for themselves!!! Enter below!! Good luck to all who enter!!! a Rafflecopter giveaway

No other form of compensation was received aside from a wonderful Glade Expressions®-scented home !!! The Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser provided in the giveaway was purchased by myself using an internet printable coupon.

MY NATURAL JOURNEY THUS FAR

Almost three years ago, I decide that it was time to reclaim my roots, literally. I decided it was time to let go of the chemical hair treatments and find out exactly what my hair "really" looked like. I will say the journey has been interesting and not without a bit of heartbreak. I was so hoping to have this amazingly ridiculous 'fro that would seemingly touch the sky by now, but, alas, no. I have a cute little 'fro that requires lots of attention and lots of maintenance. Why? Because that's just the way my hair is. Even after all of this time, I am still searching for the right combination of products and treatments that will promote a healthy coif. I have recently been toying with the idea of just chopping it all off and starting from scratch because some days I just don't wanna. (I actually just whined that in my head SMH!!!) All in all the journey has been a good one and I do hope that this post sparks some people to pass on some much needed advice as far as maintaining and growing a healthy head of natural hair. I have never been a product junkie because 1:There are so many and 2: I'm frugal!! With that said, if there are any products you would like to recommend, please feel free.
