TEIONNA WHITE: THE HAMPTON ROADS AREA'S PREMIER LIFE COACH

Hello Friends! I want to introduce you to a dynamic lady! Meet the woman who was a single parent at age 18 and degree proficient by 22, Teionna White, the Hampton Roads area’s premier life coach. Ms. White specializes in areas ranging from personal growth & development, life & time management, all the way to goal clarity and resume and interview skills. A setback for some, Teionna White used her single-parent obstacle as ammunition to start promoting the “No Statistic” campaign. The journey through teen pregnancy was no easy task even though she realized she had a support system. She also recognized that not everyone had the same. Teionna wanted to shape a campaign that encouraged success for the youth, despite cultural and economic typecasts that he or she may face. With the “No Statistic” campaign off to a start, she went on to get a Masters in Community Counseling from Norfolk State with hopes to become a positive agent of social change who'd help build stronger communities.


With credentials to back her, Teionna started a series of educational groups in schools and jails in the Hampton Roads area as a branch under the Western Tidewater Community Services Board as well as her own non-profit organization called Resilient Family Services. Her community outreach efforts lead to high success rates amongst her mentees. With testimonials ranging from at-risk girls being coached in middle school, graduating from high school, and going on to become the next doctors and lawyers, Teionna has a calling for transforming the lives of individuals.

Teionna has honed in on what the success method is with her Five Closest People Theory. “People have to be consistent, to be successful. You can make excuses or you can make money. You can’t do both,” she notes. “Look at your five closest people around you and see that they are a reflection of you.”

More recently, Teionna started a women’s group called Success United Network (SUN), noting that SUN is the perfect acronym because everything starts with the Sun. The mission of The Success United Network is to prepare women to become successful in all areas of life. The acronym SUN stems from the definition of the actual Sun, a radiant energy that sustains life on Earth, which can be perfectly correlated to the mission of the Success United Network as the goal is to sustain opportunities for better life on earth. Likewise, SUNday is recognized as the first day of the week while the SUN rising symbolically represents a new day and the acronym used by the Success United Network goes beyond the first letters of each word but suggest someone beginning a new chapter of success. The women’s group is based out of the Hamptons Roads area and aims to bring together women through networking and positivity, as well as meetups at lunch, parks and other happenings. With their first event happening this fall, women are invited to partake and join Teionna’s success movement by gathering information from her website at www.teionnawhite.com or following her on Instagram & Twitter @teionna_white. We support, recognize, and honor hard working women here on Miss Elisa K., The Blog. Thank you Teionna and thank you Savannah Britt! SMOOCHES XOXO

APOTHECARY EXTRACTS 100% PURE AUSTRALIAN TEA TREE OIL REVIEW

Bonjour Homies! I am coming to you today with an awesome review from Apothecary Extracts' 100% Pure Austrailian Tea Tree Oil. Apothecary Extracts' Tea Tree Oil is 100% undiluted, without impurities, and has the tests to back it up. Tea Tree Oil is one of the most versatile essential oils. It naturally fights Acne, Toenail Fungus, Lice, Yeast Infections, Skin Tags, Cold Sores, Dandruff, Ringworm, Fleas, Warts, Psoriasis, and More. Tea Tree Oil can be used to make your own Shampoo, Lotion, Soap, Face Cleaner, Body Wash, Toothpaste, Household Cleaners, Detergents, Shower Sprays, Bathroom Disinfectants, and Kitchen Sprays.

I absolutely love this Tea Tree Oil! It is so potent and strong. I have never bought pure tea tree oil before but I can never go back. And I am so in love with Apothecary Extracts, that I don't know if any other brand will measure up. For only $24.99, Apothecary's Tea Tree Oil is worth every penny. And you get 4 fl oz, which is an amount that will last a long time.

I did not do any DIYs with Apothecary's Tea Tree Oil but I did use it to "Boost" or enhance 2 products I already use.

1. Acne Facial Scrub
Every morning, I added 3 drops to the already invigorating Alba Botanica AcneDote Maximum Strength Face & Body Scrub. Not only does the smell refreshes you for the day ahead, but the antibacterial properties of the pure Tea Tree Oil and naturally derived Salicylic Acid really opens up your pores and clears the pimples. My skin felt cleaner and tighter after adding the Tea Tree Oil. My skin produces less pimple-breeding sebum (our skin's natural oils) throughout the day.

2. Shampoo Mixture
With natural, tightly coiled, 4C hair, it is hard to get to my scalp which also produces dandruff. I found it easier to manage my hair when I section it in either large plaits or cornrows (under wigs) so that I could actually apply the shampoo to my scalp. To make application easier, I added water and good clarifying shampoos like CVS 2 in 1 Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner and Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo all in a spray bottle. I added about 20 drops of Tea Tree Oil to the mixture and spray directly on my scalp and let it sit under a plastic bag so that it can lift the dirt. Sometimes my hair doesn't get as clean as I would like. But since adding the Tea Tree Oil, my scalp and hair feel squeaky clean!!! I am so excited because I could feel the Tea Tree Oil working on my scalp. The tingle didn't feel uncomfortable but refreshing and healing.

If you are feeling more creative than me, every purchase of Apothecary Extracts' 100% Pure Austrailian Tea Tree Oil comes with a FREE eBook which contains 50+ uses for Tea Tree Oil. They provide you with all the ways to use tea tree oil to improve your life, and replace harmful cleaners around the house. This is yours to keep even if you return the tea tree oil.

If you are aiming for all-natural multi-use cleansers or you just want a product that does what it claims to do, you should purchase Apothecary Extracts' 100% Pure Austrailian Tea Tree Oil TODAY! I want to thank Apothecary Extracts and Brandbacker for the opportunity to experience this awesome product. Hope, Faith, and SMOOCHES XOXO
