Bucket List: Travel – Where To Now, Madam?

It’s cold outside. It’s Winter. And it sucks. Which means it’s a brilliant time to let the mind wander to all four corners of the gorgeous floating rock we live on. At least if I never get to go anywhere, I can mentally dip my toes into the warm seas of some far off exotic, magical paradise. It’d be nice. So who’s with me? Where are you going to tick off your bucket list?

Cheap Lotion, Like Really Cheap, Like Super Cheap

I had run out of my recent favourite lotion, the Garnier Body – Beauty Oil-Infused Nourishing Lotion and was on the hunt to find it again. But do you know that really irritating scenario where you go to the shelf and the label is there but the product isn’t? I didn’t have a long lunch break and couldn’t really be running around and then I saw this big white tub. Xpel Body Care? Never heard of it. Olive Oil Cream? Olive Oil is good for your hair and skin. 500ml for £1? I couldn’t help myself. And if I can give cheap…

Self Improvement, That Blog Life

Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018.

And what a year to say goodbye to! My first full year of blogging done. The first year of my healthy hair journey done. My skin looking better than it has in I can’t even remember, yes! Feeling happier and more confident going into 2018 than I could’ve imagined. Let’s see how I can make 2018 more. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions and I don’t normally do deep reflection but I’ll do a little of both…for posterity. Not because I’m a cliché or anything.

Song of the Month

Song Of The Month – January 2018 – Get On The Bus By Destiny’s Child

LINK TO THE VIDEO I can’t remember a time when Destiny’s Child or Beyoncé weren’t a part of my life. Well I can, there was a brief period where the Spice Girls where the greatest girl group of all time. I know TLC were around but I’m from the UK so at their peak, you couldn’t breathe without something Spice Girls being shoved in your face. But Destiny’s Child were different. They weren’t surrounded by the hype, at least not on this side of the Atlantic, their songs were more complex than the Spice Girls glorified nursery rhymes, their super co-ordinated…

Review: Afro Hair Solutions Scalp Reviver Mask

I’ve always said the biggest and best things come in small packages but you’ve got to big yourself up when you’re only about 5 foot 4. So when this little tin of Afro Hair Solutions Scalp Reviver Mask came through the door from Detangled Hair, I hoped that this would once again be the case.

The Christmas Spirit

I hate winter. Hate talk about when we’re expecting snow. I hate shopping for presents. And I HATE wrapping presents. But I love Christmas. I love the over indulgence. And I love cheesy jumpers. I love the Doctor Who Specials. I love Christmas dinner and the family time. So me and Christmas have a love/hate relationship.
