New year, new you, new hair! Why not?
It was a hard year, physically, emotionally, politically. What can I say, it was a tough one for a lot of us. And I’m glad it’s over.

I always looked at people with curly hair like my kids have and thought, damn, they’ve got it easy. Detangling with those loose curls is a breeze compared to my coarse, Brillo pad hair. My mother was the first person to make the Brillo pad comment and it has stuck. I am scarred.
It’s funny when I look at my kids, I find it hard to see any resemblance. It’s something, that if I’m completely honest, I struggle with. Most parents look like their kids. But I can’t see myself in them at all. That’s not completely true, there are fleeting moments when I see it. If I hadn’t birthed them myself, I don’t think I’d believe those gorgeous little monsters were mine. So when my daughter comes to me and says she wants colour in her hair like Mummy, how could I say no?
Have you heard of EDEN BodyWorks before? The first time I remember coming across them was in a picture of Farouk James surrounded by their products. And I thought wow! If those products contributed even just 1% to how amazing his hair looks, then surely in the quest of finding my Holy Grail products, they were worth a go!
Have you heard of British Curlies? Well, if you haven’t it’s unfortunately too late. They’ve closed down. So I made the most of that and got myself some goodies. I don’t know if by the time this post is published whether the shop will still have stock but give it a go – Shop British Curlies.

It’s my birthday month so it’s time to party rather than be merry. One of my biggest memories with this song was how my little girl singing “hot damn!” every time this came on. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee xx Hey, why not follow this blog! There should be some follow…
It feels like an age since I did my little Head Wraps project. But it was only the end of April, early May. How time flies! And how many ways I’ve worn my wraps since.
No bulls**t here, I just want everyone to be happier. I know, I specifically said no more happy clappy BS!I would love to say I want everyone to be happy but until there is a massive cultural shift, we’ll never be content. We want this, we want that, we want more, we want better. And while that idea is aspirational (marketing companies depend on it), it’s also destructive. There’s no shame in yearning for more and wanting to be better. It’s what drives most of us to get on with life. It’s what gets me up in the mornings knowing that…
