5 Back-to-School Tips for the College Girl


August is nearing its end, which means college students across the country are packing their things and getting set for a brand new semester. It's an exciting time for many, but it can also bring on the anxiety, especially for first-timers! We've prepared a few tips to help make the transition into campus life as smooth as possible. Enjoy!  1. Set the Mood Create a Study/Focus Playlist Listening to music while studying or doing homework is nothing new. Familiar tunes can block out the distractions of your environment. However, try creating a playlist of songs without lyrics. It can be hard to resist singing along when listening to your favorite Lizzo or Beyonce while studying. They're great, but when you need to focus, an impromptu jam session is probably not going to help. Give smooth jazz or even classical music a try. It's proven that they can help stimulate the mind to do its best work. If you can't picture yourself jumping right into those genres, start out by just listening to... MORE

Happy Birthday, EDEN!


Here's a story about a girl named Jasmine...     Who knew there was much more to life than damaged hair. After experiencing chemical damage, she researched ingredients and started mixing oils right in her mother's kitchen. Those were the beginnings to her FIRST product - JojOba Monoi Hair Oil. Fifteen years later, she's merged her love for beauty with tech and is still creating products with natural ingredients to help address your moisture, dryness, breakage, fullness concerns and more!       We are celebrating EDEN BodyWorks’ 15th birthday this month + the life that has been cultivated and shaped by your love, support, and encouragement!

Breathe, Shake + Let It Go: Detox Your Doubts This Spring


“Wake up at 5a, meditate, workout, go to work, eat clean, read, yoga, check in with family, fall asleep” and repeat. Day in + day out, you’re striving to stay on track without dropping the ball to life’s juggling game. Even though you’ve been constantly pushing through, doubts begin swirling in your mind with each day that passes by. One morning your eyes open but the rest of you feels depleted with not enough fight or faith to defeat your negative thoughts. Just breathe. This simply calls for a life detox to reset, realign + center yourself this season.   Fall Apart Everywhere you look there’s messaging encouraging 100% ambition 24 hours a day no matter the cost, but this is not a healthy mentality for any long-term goal. Society + media can have you feeling guilty for eating a few extra carbs, sleeping in on a Saturday or even slicing down your to-do list. We need time to beautifully fall apart to remind ourselves the power of slowing down + enjoying life. Thes... MORE

Let's Celebrate! - A Note from Jasmine Lawrence


This year marks the 14th anniversary of the founding of EDEN BodyWorks. I’m immensely proud of the impact the team has made and continue to be optimistic about the future that lies ahead. Now that I’ve spent more than half my life at the helm of this organization, I’d like to share some thoughts on the journey thus far, where we’re going, and what keeps us moving.        Looking Back Some of you may be familiar with the story, but for those who aren’t, I founded EDEN BodyWorks as a teenager after facing my own challenges with managing my natural hair and understanding my value beyond my looks. I had two goals in mind when I set out to start my own company. First, I wanted to share the natural products I created and healthy hair tips I had learned through research with women around the world. Second, I wanted to encourage, support and empower people to pursue their best, happiest, healthiest lives regardless of what challenges they faced. What started with a hair oil made in my kitc...

28 Afros with Ziajah Nellom


My name is Ziajah Nellom of cupofZ.com and I’m the creator of 28 Afros, a month-long series dedicated to recreating iconic afros in celebration of Black History Month.    About 28 Afros   There’s no doubt that the afro hairstyle is multidimensional. Through the 28 Afros series, my goal was to showcase how intricate and versatile the hairstyle can be. I wanted to highlight shrinkage as well as stretched-to-full-capacity hair. I also wanted to display shapes and how the texture of an afro changes daily. It amazes me that we, as a people, still have such a hard time with something as simple as hair. Whether it be at home or in the workplace, it can be challenging for some people to feel comfortable wearing their hair in its natural state. When describing natural hair, I use words like intricate and multidimensional as a term of endearment, however, these same terms are used as synonyms for words like complex and difficult which are used in a derogatory manner. I believe that people ... MORE
