What's Instagram raw?

Instagram Raw is raw done in such a way that each meal is carefully composed for aesthetics, and may or may not actually be nutritionally correct.

Coconut oil, pureed veggies, and organs are often pre-portioned and frozen into cute little shapes. Quail eggs are artfully arranged in bowls because they’re cute and speckled. Sprigs of fresh produce spring perkily from the bowl. (The bowl is always spotless, or made of cork and locally sourced copper, or hand crafted in conflict-free ceramic by blind lepers from Bangladesh.)

Dainty little chicken hearts are placed in a row. Luscious chunks of pork are hand-selected for their color and shape, and are carefully placed in the bowl (or on the plate!) to form a little pig outline. Brightly colored fish radiate out, in a macabre sunburst design.  Smears of pureed liver surround everything, and are lightly sprinkled with turmeric, black pepper, and cinnamon* to fight free radicals. (* Ceylon, not Saigon, you peasant!)

The whole damn thing is then photographed in a lightbox and posted to instagram with 47 hashtags before being served to the poor dog.

Hashtag rawisbest. Hashtag mypuppylovesraw. Hashtag quaileggs. Hashtag blessedtohavelocalrabbits. Hashtag onlyfeedorganic. Hashtag rawfedalways. Hashtag deathnuggets. Hashtag kibblefeedersarenazis. Hashtag Imbetterthanyou.

Coconut oil. Like from the grocery store? The cooking kind? Or is th How do you use it. Wash and rinse or leave it in all day. Everyday? Once a week? I've never had long hair before but I've now got a man-bun so all this hair care stuff is completely foreign to me and like to learn as much as possible

yeah! I have a jar in the kitchen, a jar in the bathroom and a jar in my bedroom! I’m literally obsessed with it!! 
I use it for everything from a daily moisturiser (directly after getting out of the shower and dry your skin, apply heavily as most of it absorbs readily anyway, but right after the shower your pores are still open from the heat! so moisturising is best then)
Can be used to help enhance nail and eyelash growth (put a little on your nails/nail beds or eyelashes before bed.
It’s the worlds greatest face cleanser/make up remover!
lip balm (as is, or mix with some raw sugar for a more exfoliated balm - this is also good for an abrasive facial scrub too!)
leave in your hair as a mask (30 mins - overnight) then wash out but try wash shampoo twice before conditioner (when applying focus on ends and try avoid putting in too much at the roots as the roots generally hold a lot of natural moisture to begin with :). Some people like to heat the oil before applying to hair - but i’m not too fussed to be honest!
or Put in a tiny bit to the ends of your hair after you wash it (a tiny bit!!! a little goes a lounge way! i usually just brush my fingers through the ends of my hair after i have moisturised my body as the leftovers on my hands seems to be more than enough!
You can use it for oil pulling (swoosh a mouthful of coconut oil in your mouth for 20-30 mins (it helps to remove toxins, bacteria and even said to help whiten teeth and eliminate bad breath!)
it is great for massages!!
and also great for cooking as it not only has a delicious taste (i sometimes have a spoonful of it by itself as it is great for getting those essential fatty oils!) (which helps with complexion, skin, and overall glow as well as hair health and the functioning of your vital organs and metabolism). when you cook with normal oils (all oils except coconut oil and flaxseed oil) they break down differently in the heat and are not actually good for you! 
i am literally in love with coconuts. like i could EASILY live purely off coconuts.. coconut oil, coconut water, coconut milk, coconut cream, shaved coconut, coconut chips, desiccated coconut, coconut flesh.. you name it! I am OBSESSED!

What are some good used for coconut oil? I just recently bought some at the farmers market

Wow what can I say about coconut oil ? It can be used for basically anything. It’s great for skin, it helps get rid of acne scars ,acne as well as improve your skin completion. A great moisturizer for the whole body including hair & scalp.
It’s strong enough to penetrate the hair shaft & condition your hair.
I have used it as a makeup remover.
Add it to your regular shampoo to fight frizz as well as a pre-poo for easier detangling.
Use it for cooking to lower heart diseases & cholesterol.
Apply it in your hair for proper moisturizing & sealing in moisture as well as on your ends to fight split ends.
You can also strain it through your teeth for a few mins then spit it out to whiten them & fight gum disease as well.

As you can see, coconut oil has many uses but make sure it’s pure unrefined coconut oil,cold pressed or virgin raw coconut oil to better benefit from its uses:-)

So I found some coconut oil for white people

While looking for some online and I came across a company named Kopari. Kopari apparently is a beauty cream made from coconut oil..

$34USD for 7.oz??? This is cocaine prices. Do you people not know you can get a jar of coconut oil for $6. A JAR  So i felt like maybe I was overreacting a jumping to conclusions. Maybe its more than coconut… PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST COCONUT OIL!


Thats right… $8.60 PER POUND for pure coconut oil. if we say there are 16oz in 1lb, thats $0.54 an ounce. So at the sizes offered we are talking about $3.75….  Kapri is up selling this stuff 900%!

Kelly Rowland Poses Nude For Elle Magazine (Shot By Lance Gross)

Kelly Rowland or Kelly Glowland? Because the mom-to-be is giving off glowing, ethereal pregnant queen goddess tease in Elle magazine!

With one hand covering her growing boobs and another holding her baby bump, Kelly takes part in the tradition of pregnant celebrity moms posing nude in her latest photo spread. The image was captured by actor and celebrity photographer Lance Gross, and also includes a few clothed shots as well, where Kelz looks just as gorgeous in a tuxedo and dresses, as she does in the buff.

For the interview portion of the feature, Kelly gushes about beginning her journey as a new mom (she’s due in a couple of weeks) and how she plans to raise her son while balancing her career. She also shares the secret behind her enviable glow (hint: cocoa butter on deck!), the yummy treats she’s been craving, and not understanding why nude pregnancy shots are so frowned upon.

Peep the highlights:

On what she looks forward most to about motherhood:

I can’t wait until he gets here. I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.

Her cravings:

I love cherry pie and chocolate ice cream with peanut butter mixed in it. And I had a week straight where I was obsessed with nachos.

On her pregnancy beauty regimen:

I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals. I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin. I’m going to continue to just use those after the baby gets here.

On the kind of celebrity mom she plans on being:

I just plan to play it by ear. Everybody has their normal. And sometimes, award shows are a part of that. I have girlfriends who have that experience, and they’ll say ‘You know, I just really didn’t want to be without my child today.’ And it’s just that simple. It’s about finding your normal, whatever that may be.

On posing nude:

Some pregnant women get flack for nude photos. Why was it important to you to include those in the shoot?
I don’t know why they would get flack. It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’s Godmazing [laughs] watching your body carry a human. I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.

On balancing being a mom, a wife and an entertainer:

I watch Diana Ross and Donna Summer and all these women—they’ve managed to do it all. I think ‘What makes me different? I can definitely do it.’ And this is something I’ve wanted. I’ve been talking about babies since last year. I believe I spoke it into existence during a conversation with my friend, and I feel like I became pregnant overnight! And she said all we need is a community of strong people around us, and we rely on each other and our families.

On rumors she’ll be playing Donna Summer in upcoming biopic:

All these rumors! I was just with my glam squad, we were having fun and we saw this beautiful picture of a Donna Summer record. I was like ‘let’s try to do this look!’ I love Donna Summer. I love how she’s this sex goddess, and she’s so beautiful and powerful onstage. So we mocked up a cover and I posted a picture. That’s all it was! But it would be an amazing opportunity to play her.




Shedding FAQ

My Dragon is Shedding, what can I do to help?

The best thing to do is give them a warm bath! Never ever pick or pull at shed, this can cause damage to the scales underneath, bleeding or wounds. Things like Shed-Ez or other don’t always work, and can be pricey.

What about retaining shed on tail, toes or spikes?  (This also applies to the rest of the body)

You can do a few things, while in a warm bath you can use a very soft toothbrush and move it in circles to help get the shed off, or gently move the pad of your finger back and forth to ease it off as well. You can also use PURE cocoa butter and put that on the shed, it will soften it and help it come off. (More details below!)

There is some severe retaining shed from a few sheds ago, help!

The best thing to do in this case, especially if baths aren’t working, is use the Pure Cocoa Butter or Pure Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. Both of these will have the same effect on a shed. Lightly coat the area and let it sit for at least an hour, but it would be better to do it for longer if possible. When it’s done sitting, gently wipe it off with a very soft cloth and give a warm bath again. Try and make the water 80-90 degrees f, and then use the soft toothbrush or finger movements to work off the shed. Continue these procedures until all the old shed is off.

Every week I make myself a natural hair treatment before I shampoo and I’ve got my recipe down packed (^・ω・^ ) look at dat creamy goodness ★

If anyone wants to know, this is what I use for dry hair  (I tend to eyeball) ;

  • Two avocados
  • Good squeeze of honey & mayo 
  • Cap of extra virgin olive oil 
  • Level tablespoon of pure organic coconut oil
  • Few squirts of tea tree oil or any other good organic oils for hair
  • Lastly, 1 egg for the fluffy whipped consistency ( Note: the egg is Important b/c it also balances out the oils that will tend to drip down your face/neck without it, especially the coconut oil as it liquifies. If you use smaller amounts of oil the mayo w/out an egg can also create a creamy consistency. If there is oil saturating the top of the mixture you have too much and it will drip all over your face)

Put it all in a blender (I use a small magic bullet) and bam, a moisturizing healthy, chemical free prepoo treatment for your hair! I put a plastic shower cap on and let it sit while I watch t.v for an hour or two. You can experiment with the natural ingredients for your hair type. For ex for very oily hair you can use just the egg whites or add lemon juice and less oils. Over time I have noticed much more softness and shine  :3

  • There’s some baby abs there despite eating everything in sight while trying to put on some weight (which I am 😁) - currently I don’t track religiously but I adhere to some simple principles …. I eat carbs everyday, and with every meal apart from breakfast. And on training days and around my training I rack up loads of them. I eat protein with every meal (other than sometimes my evening oats) and I get fats from coconut oil, pure butter and fatty meats.
    I don’t rack up calories in any liquid form (fizzy juices, juices, alcohol) as I prefer to eat my calories and get them from nutritious foods mainly. I eat whatever I want on the weekend but don’t go crazy it can be a pasta, burger, some sweet potato fries, maybe some ice cream if I fancy it …. If I fancy something off plan or a meal out during the week I DONT STRESS IT ! Life doesn’t have to be full of restrictions but a strong metabolism can time to adapt especially if you’re body is used to being put thru over training and dietary / calorie restriction…. It also require MUSCLE and muscle require constant maintenance - or you loose them. I work my ass off in the gym … I am rarely dying in a puddle of sweat but I make sure I squeeze hard and focus on tempo and muscle contraction above all.
    Are you sleeping? Are you digesting & pooping? 💩, are you stressed a lot? These questions are way more important than - what protein powder should I take…. Or how much cardio should I do….
