Bits and Bobs from H&M

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 2 views

Hello and welcome! I hope you’re good today. I recently pop over to the H&M website to grab myself some much needed accessories for taking photos for my beauty/makeup products on here. I came across these beautiful copper products from their home and interior section. I am trying to revamp my room and I thought these items will add a bit of much needed glamour. 

I think that H&M is one of the best places to look for inexpensive, expensive accessories for the home and I am now on the look out for more copper products to add to the stack.
I afraid these items are all sold out on the H&M UK website. There are some more copper pots on their website – link

Thoughts on Eva Wigs Lace Frontal

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 0 views

Well hello and welcome, I super happy to have you here with me. I hope you are having a good day today? If you are not then please don’t less your worried get you down as you already know life is too short to worry about the little things in life. 
As you have already guessed, I will be reviewing the  lace frontal I bought from Eva Wigs. Placing the order was very very easy however, receiving my hair is a very different story because they have to make each frontal by scratch this meant that i have to wait for about 3 weeks; during my wait, I wanted to cancel my order but I was then told that because they had already started making my order I could cancel it minus some admin charges, which I wasn’t willing to do. I have I eventually managed to sort out my concerns with the lady at customer service. 
The hair itself  was platinum blonde but when i received it, it wasn’t platinum at all; it looked like dirty blonde. Although it is very silky, soft and fully of life. Me being a do-it-yourself-er went ahead and dyed the hair soi can get it as light as the Bombay hair (here) with some hair bleaching kit I had.  
It came in this box, in a clear plastic bag. 

Here are the pictures of the hair, after I had dyed the roots dark brown, some bits went a little purple/silvery because I had used the silver shampoo to stop the bleach from getting every where. Scroll down to see more pics of the lace and the hair. Now I cannot wait for my hair to be slayed by this new hair dresser I  will be trying out shortly #fingerscrossed!
 

 

I felt that this hair, was very easy to bleach, and handle and even with the little glitch before it arrived, I was expecting a very terrible hair and I was pleasantly surprised. Now I hope it lustre, silky, lively hair lasts after several months.

Daily Curly/Natural Haircare

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views

Apologies in advanced if I am driving you hair crazaayy. I am currently finally found products that work great with my natural hair and I couldn’t wait to tell ya. Today’s post is all about the hair after i have washed and towel dried it. So  let’s begin with these two products shall we.
 
I first stumbled upon this brand on a bloggers event I attended (click here to see the unboxing video) I was sceptical as usual because it didn’t look like something I could use on my natural hair. One of the ladies who were representing the brand, said that no it is actually for all curly hair types even afro curly/kinky hair.  The first thing i did was smell this stuff and it smells so good enough to eat (PS. don’t eat it)

 I was given two products, one is the curly cream and the other was the style gel. Both products help to tame frizzy, unruly hair. I use these two babies when I want to twist and leave my hair out and it also helps to maintain and makes my curls lasts longer.

My only negative is with the styling creme, it does make my hair a little sticky after use, so be warned that you may need to wash your hair after use if you find it annoying.
 They have a whole range of stuff on their site – click here to check it out 
Have you tried these two products or any products from the Curl Company?

OOTD: The Denim A-Liner

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 1 views

Hello! 
Today’s outfit of the day was me trying to style this denim skirt for a casual day out with friends. As you all know by now, because I am always cold I try to always dress up warm and in this British weather one must be prepared for the unexpected.  For this outfit, it was warmer so I was brave to go out without any tights and I feel it looks much better without tights on. Don’t you think? I must admit though, I am really loving the whole denim look and I cannot wait to try out more light blue denim, maybe I could style some dungarees next (I have my eyes on many from a couple of stores)

What do you think of this little put together and are you currently loving the whole denim look?

Rescue Me // Goodbye Bad Hair Days

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good day.
At the moment I have been loving these three hair masks which I have added to my hair rescue me collection. I decided to try out these products products on my natural hair and because they helped to restore my locks back to life, I wanted to share with you my findings.  Let’s take a look at how these products work and why I am currently loving them. 

There are many masks out there that promise to restore, tame and indeed rescue, dry damaged hair. I have used a few that have left my hair even more brittle. So whenever, I try out hair masks for the first time, my expectations are always very high.
Maria Nila Luminous Colour masque is meant to be used on coloured hair as I haven’t been wearing weave any more and don’t have coloured hair, I decided to try it out on my natural hair and it did wonders on my hair, my hair feels, silky, smooth and tamed after use. Plus this mask is also 100% vegan, sulphate and paraben free and it smells divine. I usually apply and leave it on my hair for about 10-15 mins and then rinse off and then add me some coconut oil. If you are looking for all in one mask then, this bad boy is definitely worth a try.
Bleach London Reincarnation Mask this is also another mask that is meant to be used for something else ie. bleached hair. I have been loving this mask, since i first used it in this video (link) I used it on my hair and again, apply it on my locks and leave it under a shower cap/plastic bag for 10-15 mins and then rinse and voilĂ  my hair is alive and restore fully back to life… this mask also smells good. It can be used on any hair that needs reviving.
The final mask is this Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisturizing Milk Masque Treatment is the cheapest of them all and it is made especially for curly hair. After use it helps to strengthen, revive and hydrate my untamed mane back to a manageable state and it also smells good. I would highly recommend this to all and you can pick this up from your local beauty supply store.

Smooth and Sexy Summer Skin All Year Round // Bean Burst Body Scrub

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 0 views

With summer around the corner, I am always looking for ways to keep my skin smooth, silky  and soft. This is were this coffee scrub from Bean Burst lends a hand. I had previously used and loved my coffee scrubs from other brands…this time around I tried this grapefruit blend scrub to see if I get the same results. 
This scrub is great…my skin felt smooth, soft and I felt two pounds lighter. I felt sexier and wanted to prance around in shorts all day because I felt so gorgeous lol. It’s the same results I got when I used the other scrubs;however, this scrub smells amazing and it’s not too overpowering. The company itself is based here in the UK and offer free shipping to all UK orders. They also have scrubs in other scents, I am thinking of trying Sweet Orange Blend next. 
Have you tried any of the scrubs from Bean Burst? Did you love the results you got after use?
For beautiful summer skin all year round, give them a try.

Hello guys and girls! Welcome to another day in my little corner, I am glad to have you here and I hope you’re having a fabulous day. 
 I first came across the Spectrum Collections brand browsing Instagram and I have been meaning to try out their brushes for a while and finally took the plunge; bought myself these pretty brushes and it’s totally worth it. Instagram is my new shopping app. I loathe it sometimes but I have so many pretty things because of it. These brushes are super soft with a pretty rose gold detailing. I haven’t used it yet and am hoping to do a proper makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel shortly. Scroll down to see some more pics of these beautiful brushes.

Caudalie #mysweetsorbet – The New Skin Care Favourites

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views

Hello again and welcome back. Its a pleasure to have you here. I hope you’re having a fantastic day. Today’s post is a quickie update on some new skincare staples and I was itching to share this with you. When I was asked if I could try out some new products from Caudalie; I was jumping with excitement and couldn’t wait to receive the products and try them out. As most of you who are regular readers/followers of my blog know that I am a massive fan of the Caudalie brand, so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity this time round to try these exciting new launch. And like I have said before, I will never put anything up that I don’t feel fits it with me or my readers. 
I was sent two samples from their Vinosource collection and a mask from all of which are great for oily – combination skin types. 
The Limited Edition Grape Water – I use to freshen my face during the day… a little goes a long way. It moisturises and soothes the skin. Absolutely a handbag essential especially in the lovely summer weather we have been blessed with lately.
The Glycolic Peel Mask I have used on the weekends. It is helps to brighten the skin after use. The mask again like all the Caudalie products I have used is very effective. 
This matifying liquid, is the bomb! To be frank, this has been my go to daily moisturiser in the morning and night. BTW yes you can use it at night. It helps to keep my oils at bay without drying the skin, I use this under my makeup and I don’t need use too much milk of magnesia (MOM)  as primer any more. Once I mistakenly added too much MOM and my make-up started cracking when i left the house lol and I also don’t need to set my whole face with powder, i just need to set my under eyes and my noise because it is the shiniest part of my face. I will highly recommend this to all my sisters who suffer from oily skin.

Girls in the City Ft Kim Dave Designs

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views

Hello! How  are you today. I Know i haven’t really been keeping up with my posting recently, I have been busy with work so i haven’t really had time to write my posts. I am back to my schedule now and I will get back to posting Tuesdays’, Thursdays and occasional Saturdays. For today’s post, I wanted to share with you an exciting editorial shoot I took part in about two weeks ago with two gorgeous bloggers wearing colourful African prints (ankara by KimDaveDesigns. The theme as you can guess was ‘girls in the city’. Kim (aka Priscillia) allowed us to choose our own outfits and she made them all  to fit each girls shape and size. Each girl had to style their own outfit however, we wanted. This was my first ever professional shoot and I had a blast. It was great to meet such wonderful beautiful, intelligent and like minded ladies who are working hard to achieve their passion. I absolutely loved styling this print and I do hope you enjoy the pictures.
Here are some of the pictures from our shoot with Alexander Ivanov Photography

Let the Sun Shine// The Pleated Midi Skirt

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 1 views

Hello and welcome to yet another post. I hope you’re having a great day wherever you are today. For today’s outfit, I wanted to share you with you one of the ways I would style this white pleated midi skirt, I got from nobody’s child; one of the favourite on-line store at the moment.  If you haven’t check them out, please do so because they have many great outfits at very affordable prices.
As you already know by now, I love my monochrome style nowadays. I seem to be going for less colour which is weird for me but I am still experimenting with different looks. And this for sure isn’t very monochromey. 
I really like how the pleats but not sure about length.. for tiny person I would have liked it a little shorter. Overall this skirt is very playfully fun. 
I hope you found this post helpful? .. how would you style this skirt?
