Quick post from my car :)

One of my favorite things in the world is coconut. I love the smell, taste, and the memories that come with it. Whether its of me and my family in Mexico drinking the water straight from alkkjh. coconut just off a tree. Or a yummy slice of coconut cream cake from the famous "Pinks" hotdogs in Hollywood where my mom worked as a young woman. And even the coconut smell of tanning oil when sun bathing at lake Michigan. The point is I LOVE COCONUT! lol

So getting to the post. Now coconut is the hottest new trend in FASHION, lol jk in beauty. Coconut oil is great for the exterior of your body. Its great for the hair so its being included in many shampoos, treatments, and serums. It is also great as a moisturizer for skin. And for internal use coconut water is great. Its better than sports drinks after a workout because its natural, rehydrates fast, and replaces electrolytes faster. It also has several vitamins, magnesium, potassium, and calcium to help your body be its best inside and out.

I hope you all found this quick post helpful. I was feeling guilty because i keep promising a new post and i keep failing lol. I still dont have reliable internet to upload full post so there might be more frequent quick post. So have a good day Glam Geeks ;D
