I hope by now, from reading this blog or scrolling through my IG or Pinterest, that you understand that I am a braid lover. Completely head over heels! The brighter the better too! They’ve been such a part of my life since I was a child, from the tender age of 15, only one other person on one occasion has braided my hair for me. And I always feel more confident with those woven strands dangling down my back. I’ll love them even more, when all the length is my own!
I’ve been blogging for 2 and a half years now. There have been ups and downs, times where it even felt like I’d completely forgotten my blog existed. But I’ve persisted. I’ve been blogging long enough now that I’ve seen other blogs slow down or disappear completely. That’s why whenever I notice a little victory, it should be acknowledged, if not celebrated. I’m talking about blog stats – you know, the really fun, interesting bit.
So the blog has taken aback seat to my procrastinating ways. I feel like I’m not making much progress but luckily you guys have been sticking with and still reading. Thank you very much! I haven’t got my newsletter sorted yet (but you can subscribe here, please don’t hold your breath until it comes…), I haven’t actually written a post in like a month but thankfully my hair is till growing strong.
I recently went to Afro Hair And Beuaty Live in London. So unlike the other bloggers and vloggers and generally hair and beauty enthusiasts, that where there amongst the general public, I didn’t go home, jump on my laptop and write about it. I am a bad blogger. Also, I am a slow blogger. I am a self confessed procrastinator. Sorry. But I didn’t want the event to go undocumented because it was the first event of this kind that I’ve been too! I know, shocking right?! What have I been doing with myself?
Who doesn’t want to be liked? I know there are people out there that say they have transcended and just DGAF. But for the rest of us, even if it is not the ultimate validation, it’s still nice to be liked. Especially on Instagram.
I may or may not have mentioned that I’m a procrastinator. A list maker. A thinker not a doer. But look at me getting my sh*t together and actually doing something from my bucket list. I did that! A table for one, dining alone, eating by myself. Check!
This is going to be a short one because it’s been a while since I used this product and a while since I’ve done a product review. Shame on me! Forgive me blog, it’s been 4 months since my last review. Bad blogger! Anyway to the Creme Of Nature tub we go!
I’m someone who generally keeps my cards close to my chest. There are people that have known me for years and as much as they may know my personality, I don’t know if they know me. That’s 100% down to me. I only let people in so much and carefully answer their questions. I’m trying to be more open but I don’t know if that’s working. In a way, that is what this blog and my other blog are for. However, I don’t really want to be a mystery to my kids, of all the people in the world. They…
I did a travel bucket list a little while ago and I’m glad to announce that I’ve completed one of the items. Woo!!! I was so lucky to get to go to Disney World last year. I haven’t really posted anything on here about the trip put there are a few snaps on my Instagram. But bucket lists aren’t all about travel. They can be about challenging yourself, growing or just an excuse to do something random. This post doesn’t contain an exhaustive list, but I think this’ll be a good start.
I suppose there are lots of people that call themselves experts when it comes to doling out parenting advice. I’m about to become one of those people!
