Get The Look : Currently Obsessed with Crochet Braids


 Over the past couple of months my pinterest and instagram feed have been overflowing with photos of ladies with the juiciest and bounciest looking spiral sets I’ve ever seen. Now don’t get me wrong I know crochet braids have been around for years but these ladies, are on another level, and I need some of the action like now!

It’s been a couple of years since I had my last sewn in weave and I can’t say I’ll ever revisit one, but crochet braids, those I can do. They take READ MORE »

L – R [38 weeks length check / #lytmorningmotivation / Fro / Candy Buffet Jars / Missguided Dress / Fro / Amazing DC combo ft Joico / High Puff / Cantu Hair Products


I love how easy it is to capture every day moments on my little old iPhone. With wedding prep in full swing and the big day drawing closer than ever, I’ve found myself glued to excel sheets and ongoing emails with suppliers.

Curlvolution 2015 – Ticket Giveaway [CLOSED]

The Answer To Every Mans Prayers? No Sew Satin Pillowcase

diy satin pillowcase

Just before I published the video of this quick no sew satin pillowcase, I mentioned on instagram that bedtime discussions with hubby in prep for married life had led me to a very daring verdict, and I quote…

‘Whilst Mr has seen me in all of my headscarf glory (cooking, cleaning, running errands etc) & has no complaints. I think and agree with him and other males that as a married man, occasionally wanting to see your wives beautiful hair at bedtime is no crime!’

buk review

I’ve been holding this post off for some weeks now, just so that I could make sure I had trialed and tested all of the products more than once before deciding on a final verdict! Would you be surprised if I said more than one of these have become permanent residents on my staples list?!

Natural Bride – Hairstyle Prep For My Big day!

Natural Bride

It’s Friday! No better way than to start the day blogging whilst still tucked away under my duvet as I watch the sun beam through my window and I sip on a hot cup of rosebud tea. Don’t you just love days off!

Tricks You Must Know For Looking After Your Own Hair When Protective Styling

I’ve got to say I thoroughly enjoyed my month of straight hair! One of my biggest fears when transitioning was that once fully natural, I wouldn’t be able to achieve the bone straight finish that my relaxed hair days had seen, without re-straightening my hair everyday and eventually frying her royal froness to dust! The trick I discovered Ladies? Wigs! My divaswig unit was an absolute lifesaver. Bone straight hair, minimal leave out and my hair safely braided up and hiding under my wig far away from my straighteners. I READ MORE »

Hey Loves!

I figured it was high time I gave the scoop on my current hairstyle. I must have mastered my blending game because I’ve had a few comments on how long my hair is! Haha, I wish! Give me a few months though, you never know I may just get close!

For those of you who figured it out, yes I’m sporting a wig! The Divaswigs Unit that I showed in my ‘New In’ products post earlier on in the year. It was initially sent as a full lace READ MORE »
