Ankara Fashion

Fashion has always been a love of mine & I’m finally branching out to share some of my favourite styles, trends & shopping tips here on the blog! Ankara fashion caught my eye a few years ago, around 2016 when I wrote my post on Jumbo Senegalese Twists almost exactly 2 years ago! Back then I had just gotten my hands on my first piece of African print clothing, a swimsuit, from Andrea Iyamah. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Ankara fashion & I follow countless designers on social media to feel my obsession daily! My favourites are those that… View Post

Natural Hair Journey – Update 1 (July 2018)

  If you’ve been following along with me on my natural hair journey from the beginning with my initial natural hair post, you know that I’ve been fully natural since December 2015 after transitioning for one year.

How-to: Apply False Lashes

Todays post is another chapter of my “How-To” Guide. This one is a long one, be warned & grab a snack. This is something many women ask me about frequently, false lashes! This is a very important one because once you start wearing lashes your makeup never looks complete without them! Don’t say I didn’t tell you. Many women stay away from lashes because they are “hard” to put on or they “don’t look right” so this post will hopefully give you all the information you need. In this post I’ve also reviewed a new favourite pair of lashes & lash glue… View Post

Crochet Faux Locs | Janet Collection Mambo Rockin’ Locs

Hey everyone! Today we are back with another protective style review! This time, Janet Collection reached out to me to do a review on their new product, the “Mambo Rockin’ Locs”. Below is a photo from their website showing how the hair looks in the packaging & once installed. Retail price is $9.99 was ($5.99 on sale currently) at Beauty Depot. If I’m being quite honest, I was nervous about this hairstyle. These locs really looked very, very authentic. Authentic in this context being my way of saying they looked truly matted & exactly what you think of when you… View Post
