Start of a natural hair journey

No Comments »

Hi everyone, hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer vacation/holidays so far.

There has been a lot of people on Youtube and Instgram starting a natural hair journey for many different types of reasons. My reasons for starting this natural hair journey and finally doing the big chop was because, my hair was just not healthy and seriously damaged from all the heat and constant relaxing/perming. I didn't cut the whole thing because first of all, I am not that brave and because I had been transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair by letting my natural grow and I stopped relaxing my hair for a year. I also wanted to be able to have really nice curly hair because I think in the long run it could really cute. I really like my curly hair right now, but the best curls are in the roots and it feels really nice and soft...yay!

Although I like the texture of my hair I'm just going to keep braiding it so that it can just grow, but I am still looking for hair products that will keep my hair healthy and moisturised. If you have any hair products that you think will be good for my natural hair then please let me know.

At the moment I have my Brazilian weave installed so I will keep you updated on my hair later on when I take it out (pictures of my hair coming soon)
Excuse the quality of my pictures, it was taken with my iPad because I couldn't be bothered to get my camera out since I had to go out that day.

1. Just before being washed and freshly cut

2. After being washed, shrinkage is the worst :-(

 3. Just before untangling the knots in my hair

Celebrity Style Inspiration: Iggy Azalea + Update

Hi everyone, for me to say that it has been a long time since I have blogged is simply an understatement. Although it has been long, I do have my reasons, one of them being being my GCSE exams took over my life. I was constantly revising for about 4-5 months straight but I still ended up doing a LOT of last minutes crammed revision which I really don't understand...

To be honest, I kind of lost my blogging mojo and my interest in the fashion industry all together which is weird because most people that know me are aware that I do want to have a career in the industry soon. Well, I have finished my exams now and I'm just lounging about for the next  couple of weeks until I go on holiday to... GHANA!! I'm so excited and even though it was a really last minute trip, I'm so excited to just be chilling in the sun with some of my cousins and just...enjoying myself before I start sixth form in September!

Now that you are all aware of my absence, lets get onto the purpose of this post...


Iggy Azalea...My girl! I love her, and her rebellious yet sensual style. Her hit single 'Work' hit Youtube a while ago now and I'm seriously in love with that song. She is a fresh and rebellious R&B rapper who is here to challenge all the other female rappers and I'm sure we will be seeing her style being portrayed and acknowledged more often.
