Hello! Yoga! Habari! Eh, I must say, it has been an African minute.
How have y’all been? Any beauty concerns you’d like to share? Me tooo! For some reason, my right cheek has been quite spotty lately, so my beauty closet has hydrocortisone, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide front and center. Needless to say, I’m peeved.
On a cheery note, we have a new name! Wolf and Moroko will henceforth be known as MarCo Bash! I obsessed over this name change for weeks…weeeeks! Then when MarCo Bash came to me, it was so obviously ‘the One’- I blushed, giggled and after dinner, obsessed over it.
Let me explain. When I was a teenager, my first foray into the world of skincare was moisturizing plant oils to heal unbearable dry, eczema prone skin. Since then I’ve had a soft spot for plant oils…coconut, avocado, shea, mango…they always make me smile. Plant oils are #ForeverBae, and I’ll fight anyone on this. That soothing, soft goodness that relieves the eczema itch, it’s heaven sent, just accept the marvels and move on.
Therefore when I decided to go back to my roots for the inspiration for a beauty blog with an African perspective, the choice was clear. This beauty journey started out of an itch, an itch which begged relief, that pointed me in the direction of plant oils which opened the world of cosmetics to me, fueling my creative passion.
So guys, the new name is inspired by five of my favorite African plant oils: Marula, Coconut, Baobab, Argan and Shea butter!
What are your thoughts on the new name? Love it? Hate it? Meh it? Let me know! Also, any random beauty thoughts you’d like to share?
