Fall Natural Hair Must Haves (Blogtober 17)

Lately I have been experimenting with different hair products to provide the right moisture for my hair. Today I will be discussing some of my favorite natural hair must haves for fall. And with the weather changing I normally keep my hair in a protective styloe for the most part. 
1. Coconut Oil - I love to seal in the moisture with coconut oil .  Its affordable and last a long time , a little goes a long way.  2. Castor Oil- Every night I love to massage my hair with castor oil , to promote hair growth and stimulate my scalp. 
3. Conditioning Grease- I use a small amount to add moisture to my hair and my hair stays soft and moisturized.  4. Gel- I use the Shea Moisture to lock in the moisture and this gel does not flake up either. 5. Conditioner- For conditioner I use the Tresseme brand  , its affordable and does the job.
I dont like to use a lot of hair products in my regimen and I normally will wash my hair once a week and moisturize daily . What are your favorite hair must haves…

Favorite Fall Memory 2017 (Blogtober 15)

Hey guys , today I will be writing about my favorite fall memory. My favorite fall memory is when I was younger and I lived in Virginia , for each season the weather corresponded with it. During the fall time we  would always decorate our house with scarecrows and pumpkins it was always exciting , and made the season special. Then my mom would schedule to take us to the different fall festivities the had going on all month long. And she would do different fall related activities with us And then the closer it got to Halloween we would make goodies bags to give out for Halloween , it was so fun because I would sneak candy . Life was also so much simpler people were caught up in social media , people were actually out getting involved in the community. I really do cherish every moment of my childhood.  What is your favorite fall memory ? -xo kia Follow me on my social media to keep up with me ; Facebook :https://www.facebook.com/Lifewithraakia-1862074454051930/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

Blogtober 12 Fall Bucketlist and Aspirations

Here are a couple things I want to challenge myself to do this fall. I really want to get into the habit of making goals(bucket list ) of things I want to achieve and vision myself doing it. So without further ado here are some of my ideas for my fall bucketlist and aspirations :
1. Have a Disney Halloween throwback marathon of all my favorite childhood movies. And if you want you can do it with friends while baking or crafting.
2. Go to a pumpkin patch , I know this is kind of cheesy but I really want to take pictures in the pumpkin patch. And also go through a corn maze and pick out pumpkins. Here in Arizona we have an Apple Annie's and during the fall they have a variety of fall festivities going on.
3. Get into the habit of reading more, I feel like majority of the time I spend way to much time on my cell phone or to much watching tv. Its a nice treat every once in a while, and I feel like reading help you to be intellectual because you are learning new words.

Starbucks Fall Drinks Review (2017) (Blogtober 11)

As the weather gets colder the anticipation for Starbucks fall drink is high. People get so excited and in the fall spirit because of the drinks. This year Starbucks released two new fall flavors in addition to the originals.
1. Pumpkin Spice Latte- Every goes crazy for pumpkin , personally I like the pumpkin spice even though I would add more pumpkin sauce to get it that pumpkin flavor. 2. Pumpkin Chai Latte- I love the pumpkin spice chai latte even though I dont care for the taste of chai by itself. The pumpkin flavor and chai gives you the taste of fall, I would recommend getting it iced. 3. Maple Pecan Latte- Defiantly a must try drink this fall , it taste like pecan pralines and I love the autumn topping. I always do have white mocha and half maple syrup to bring out more of the maple flavor. 4. Salt Caramel Mocha- This is one of my go to drinks even though you can get it year round without the salt its not the same. The toffenut and mocha its the perfect combination and with th…
