Product Review: Anita Grant Whipped Butter

So I used this stuff ages and ages ago when I was like 14 or 15 and although it was impressive, I wasn't impressed enough to repurchase. I was also on a 15 year old budget. Whoooaa massive mistake (not being 15 and on a budget, I mean massive mistake not repurchasing)...I tried it again this year because it was on sale at for  £4 a jar. Wowzers. This stuff is soooo good. It smells great too in my opinion - I had the Monoi de Tahiti version which smells like flowery coconut. It's a buttery texture (duh), but very light a fluffy, almost like frosting.

Ingredients: non-destructive palm oil,unrefined murumuru butter,unrefined shea butter,unrefined cupuacu butter,vegetable glycerin,vitamin E & LOVE (that's what it says on the jar!)


  • Very Moisturising
  • Smells great
  • All natural ingredients
  • Leaves hair super shiny
  • British black owned business :-) (gotta support the Brits)

  • Potentially a bit greasy
  • Normal price is quite expensive, especially if you're paying for shipping to the U.S.
Overall it gets 4 and little bit more outta 5!

Definitely try this one out.

Peace, Love and Hair Grease folks xx

New Years Resolve

Happy 2012!
We're coming to the end of January, but I haven't blogged for a ages, mainly due to January exams and the madness that is Christmas and New Year. Although it's a bit late in the day, i thought I;d share with you all my New Year's resolutions.

This year, I resolve to:

1) Love

I will spend time act day getting to know Love. I will prioritise Love above anything else, placing Him as the centre of every activity and the motivator for every action and reaction. As I get to know Love better, Love will teach me to love myself fully and completely, and most importantly, teach me how to love others as fully and completely as I love myself. God is Love.

I will treasure time as something precious, valuable and finite, and will dance in each moment of it as freely as I can, realising that I will only get that moment once. I will see new sights, smell new smells and receive new thoughts and ideas with reckless abandon. I will open my heart to peace, joy, unselfishness, humility and courage, and close my heart to pride, hatred, bitterness, worry and self-righteousness.


I will try to see the bright side of every situation, and dig deep enough to find laughter in the little things, and share the laughter with others.


I will let Love grab hold of regret and bitterness, and take instead wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of lessons learnt. I will choose to view setbacks as stepping stones, and welcome criticism as a way of refining me. I will choose to be welcoming of information from others,  viewing everyone as someone who has something valuable to teach me, regardless of age, colour or religion. I will choose to learn to open my mind in order to learn how to close it to things that are harmful or not useful to me.

So, those are my resolutions. They're non specific, but they are real, and I'll  try to remember them as I go throughout this year. What are your resolutions?

Peace, Love and Hair grease folks xx
