He Put A Ring On It!


It feels so good to be blogging again, what do you think of the new page? Not so different right, just a bit more ‘wordpressy’! I still have quite a bit of updating to do so I hope you can bear with me, I’m just glad the site is live already!

I guess this is where I get to the juicy part of the post and share with you all that… I got engaged!!!

Whilst this blog is predominantly about haircare, it’s also a mini life diary for me to track not only my hair journey but also my growth as an individual. I really wanted to share the news here on the blog because 1- I couldn’t help it & 2- so many of you have become like family/friends to me, it only felt right!

As for the details, I could go on for days! I decided to take Mr LYT to Paris for his birthday, 2 hours before we had to catch the Eurostar back to London he flipped the script and popped the question on the most beautiful boat on La Seine! Was I surprised? Heck yeah! I screamed and could only utter two words for the next 2 minutes… ‘Oh My God, Oh My God , Oh My God’ – I promise I’m usually not the type to blasphem!!!

Here are a few pics that made it online. Now it’s time to balance work, wedding planning and blogging – so help me God!!!

He Put A Ring On It!Thank you so much for all of the love you’ve sent so far!

Back to Hair blogging now!!! See you in the next post!

With love,

NEW HAIR | MercysHairExtensions U-Part Wig + Blending Natural Hair With Curly Weave

Happy Wednesday Loves!
Just in case you hadn’t already snuck a peek at my new hairstyle well here it is, a juicy U-Part Wig using MercysHairExtensions.
I was sent this hair a good six plus months ago and decided I wanted to embrace my natural hair for a few months before opting for any protective/weave like styles, which meant after a few months a.k.a now! I was super excited to finally have this made into a U-Part and try out something new! Natural hair styling is a tonne of fun READ MORE »

Detangling Tool Showdown + Tool Giveaway [CLOSED]

I recently hosted a detangling tool giveaway on Youtube and whilst I hadn’t completely taken a break from all things Social media I most certainly put blogging on hold for a few weeks [explanation here]. 
Well as the blog of course remains my first love, there was no way I was not going to host the same giveaway on here too, so if you missed the Youtube giveaway then there’s always the chance you’ll scoop something here!
I’ve used a ton of detangling tools over the past few years

Overcoming Your Past & Moving Past Regret

Hello Loves,

So where do I start? How about with my absence right! 

For the first time ever I only feel a little bit guilty for not posting on the blog. Now before you raise your brows and give up on me, let me explain! There are some super exciting changes that will be happening in my life in the next coming months starting from August, and the only way I have been able to prepare for them has been planning planning planning. I’m living in Excel sheets, my iPhone READ MORE »

Giveaway : Hair-ology Conference Tickets [closed]

I love educational hair events, don’t get me wrong the hair fairs and shows are amazing but I must admit I can be socially awkward/shy and small intimate events like this are right up my street!

I had the pleasure of being one of the guest speakers last year and I can honestly say it was a great event. Getting hair advice and tips from the likes of the Philip Kingsley team and salon owner Darren Scott & James was nothing short of a treat.

Unfortunately I won’t be able

Imperfectly Perfect: Unapologetically Myself

If there is anyone in my immediate family that could have been labelled the nerd growing up it was me. I wore the highest rise turtle neck, indulged in poem writing, doing well in school and absolutely loved to read. I can’t however say the same for my older self, who finds most of her comfort reads in hair/fashion/beauty blogs, youtube and my iphone bible app!

Well, just a few weeks ago I challenged myself to read more and made my first book purchase as part of this new reading lifestyle READ MORE »

Hair Talk: Things I Wish I Knew Before Transitioning

I know I know the past few weeks have been a whole lot of transitioner talk! I can’t help it! With two friends and three blogger sisters [Ebony of Longing4Length], [Jen of JustGrowAlready] & [Lesley of FreshLengths] recently deciding to give the transitioning thing a go, the excitement has me wanting to pour out all of my experiences and reflections here on the blog – I’m almost jealous they get to relive the moment, though I’m not sure I would sign myself up to do it all

Hair : Flower Bun Hairband… When The Sun Comes Out To Play

Over the past few weeks I’ve found myself super uninspired to do anything with my hair. My weeks are pretty much a blur of Monday flights, hotels, clients, unpacking, re-packing and catching up on lost sleep. I’ve even found myself in frequent hate-offs with my headscarf! The thought of having to put it on at night feels like a 2 hour workout! A girl just wants to sleep!
All of that changed however at the weekend when the Sun decided to come out and play! I wish you could READ MORE »
