Mocha Travel Chronicles: Baggage and Beauty Delays


So, after 18 months of traveling for work my bags where delayed. I began to feel very faint and my heart began to race. Thoughts that my bright pink suitcase that has been badly teetered would not be recovered made me weak. My experience wasn’t the greatest with the airlines as United brushed off my concerns as they felt they weren’t responsible and American giving a true Kayne shrug that the bag will come up but when they weren’t certain.

I left the Flint Michigan Airport at midnight after a long hard hour of being on the baggage assistance line with United. All pleasantness was far expired as it had taken me over 8 hours to finally get to a place that I had no desire to go. I left wondering is all this hustle and bustle really worth it? Was this undisclosed amount of an annual salary really worth my health, mental wellbeing and my beauty items each week. This was not a great start on the 1st day of May!

The Ultimate Bath Time: HiRuna Island Soaps Unboxing

Hello, beauties! I wanted to come really quick to share some goodies I got from one of my fav natural brands, HiRuna Island Soaps! They are starting their very own monthly box which will have you set for the month with bath time bliss goodness. The box will have one bar of soap, 2 bath bombs, and foaming sugar scrub. Each product is awesome in its own right but together will make you feel like you bathed in Beyoncé’s tears. I will share the tea on these goodies in the Ultimate Bath Time: HiRuna Island Soaps Unboxing!


I love soaps that are good for your skin. I have always been really big on my bath time as it’s my way of finding my Zen and release. Frangipani soap meets and exceeds the goal of washing away the day. It surprisingly produces a rich later that is lightly scented and didn’t dry my already dry skin out more. Travelling in the North East for work lately, has my skin looking like orphan Annie.


Bath Bombs

I received the Passion Fruit and Monkey Farts. I like Passion Fruit it has a nice smell but my bae is Monkey Farts. It makes me feel like I’m in some expensive perfume shop and all things wonderful are in store. Both bombs do a great thing to your water by making it super soft and leave a nice amount of bubbles. While I was on my Springfield, MA trip I brought these along and looked forward to my baths each night.

Foaming Sugar Scrub

This is one of their newer products. Hiruna Soaps truly outdid themselves with this one. I received the Mermaid Tails and after a killer week where I thought I was going to punch a client, this was the highlight on a snowed in Friday night. The formula is thick and not watery but once it hits wet skin it melts and removes all my rough skin. This snow and cold weather isn’t friendly to my skin. After my bath, I couldn’t stop feeling my skin. It helped my homemade body butter soak in really well.

I only share products on my site that are truly dope. The Hiruna Box’s will launch soon so go and subscribe to their site HiRuna Island Soaps so you can be one of the 1st to be in the know.
