Song Of The Month – May 2018 – On & On By Erykah Badu

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CPCs7vVz6s[/youtube] I’m just over half way through my headwrapping photo project on Instagram and it’s time for my Song of The Month.  So when it came to a musical artist that inspired me and also I could picture their crowns wrapped in  beautiful fabric, who else other than Erykah Badu. I know these days she is known for flaunting her…

Head Wraps

You’ve seen the girls (and boys) who are wearing a headwrap and you just think to yourself….”How in the hell?” The wrap defies gravity, the folds are impossible, the colours and patterns are otherworldly. At least that’s what I thought, so whenever I wore one I kept it super simple. I was scared to experiment and find out what I…

End Of The Range Review: YourGoodSkin

I wasn’t in the market for more skin care products or any products at all. I’m a product junkie and I’ve pretty much filled my shelf in the bathroom. And spilled onto the other shelf. And in another cupboard too. Not to mention the products that are out because I’m actually using them. They are everywhere, down the side of…

Song Of The Month – April 2018 – 2U By David Guetta and Justin Bieber

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqcjBLMaWCg[/youtube] I am loathed to add Justin Bieber to my definitive list of songs I love because I am a grown ass woman but goddammit, he makes fairly good music (now) especially when he collabs with dance DJs. It’s just a winning formula for the guy, it was a toss up between this or “Where R U Now” with Skrillex…

Pettiest Peeves #1

I am not an angry person, I swear, but some s**t just gets on my wick! For those that need a translation, on my nerves, pushes my buttons, irks me etc. You get the picture. And because I’m in a sharing mood, I thought I’d tell you all about them and when I’m done why don’t you finish the ranting…

Song Of The Month – March 2018 – Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h–P8HzYZ74[/youtube] I have to say there is something a little different about Zedd’s take on dance music. From collabs with Hayley Williams to Foxes, it’s clear that he focuses on the song and not just the beat. Which is why this collab works so well! I love Alessia Cara’s voice and I played a few of her songs to the…

Whipping It Up: Shea Butter

I’m all for DIYing my way to super long, healthy, luscious locks but honestly the initial outlay in getting all the ingredients you need to make your own products can be a little scary.You look at a little essential oil bottle and can’t believe you’re spending £3, £5, even up to £10 on 10 ml of anything. And that’s before…

End Of The Range Review: Soap & Glory (Part 1)

A few days after starting the Soap & Glory product range in early July, I got ID’ed for a scratchcard…twice. I didn’t have my driving licence so I walked away from the till, embarrassed and robbed of my almost definite winning scratchcards. Needless to say I haven’t tried buying a card since but I attribute this recent change in how…

Twist Fail: Last Night A Beanie Saved My Life

This is my first official twisting of my hair since I shaved it all off in November 2016. I say official, because I have twisted it as a way to section my hair before braiding a couple of times. But this was the first time it was the intended style. Although it took me a little getting used to, I really…

Length Check – 1 Year 3 Months

It’s been well over a year since I chose to go bald. I have hit  the milestone of 1 whole year and 3 months. And I’m not bored of this whole healthy hair blogging thing. That’s a long time. But also really short in the context of me being on a journey to tailbone length hair. And yes, I am…

Song Of The Month – February 2018 – Breathe Life By Jack Garratt

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqtvrsNLFMs[/youtube] I can’t even describe this sound. This is music like I’ve never heard. I have many a list of products to try, places to go and albums to buy (because some people haven’t yet come round to the idea of Spotify!) and this artist, Jack Garrett, is on the list of albums for sure. I will admit, if you…

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.…
