Song Of The Month – October 2018 – The Way I Am By Eminem

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQvteoFiMlg[/youtube] Do you remember that time when Eminem was literally the most important person in whole entire world of music? I even bought Angry Blonde which was a book about his songs, the lyrics, the inspirations. I loved him but I had friends that were obsessed with him. The way these young whipper snappers are obsessed with One Direction, Fifth…

Was The Social Media Break Worth It?

I said a Temporary Goodbye to this blog on the 20th July 2018 while I went on my first big family holiday with my kids (which ticked off a place on my travel bucket list) and had a much-needed social media break. The hope was that I would rejuvenate myself while being scared of FOMO and potentially losing some of…

Song Of The Month – September 2018 – Crawling By Linkin Park

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd9OhYroLN0[/youtube] Last year, the lead singer of Linkin Park died and I had an immense feeling of grief, especially for his children, I realised that I hadn’t listened to one of my all time favourite albums, Hybrid Theory, for years. It got me through those awkward teenage years, gave me a feeling of belonging to something. The album will never…

Glasses Direct: Buying Glasses Online

Ordering glasses online can be quite a daunting prospect if you’ve not done it before. Part of the experience of getting your eyes tested and then buying glasses is the trying on the specs in the shop, figuring out what works best on your face, checking it fits, what colours complement your skjn and which frames complement your purse. And…

Pettiest Peeves #3

I’m actually feeling moments of relief whenever I start getting these Pet Peeves off my chest. In my last Pet Peeve post, Pettiest Peeves (Part 2) I left off with hand dryers that don’t actually dry your hands. So here we are going into number 12. Oh, don’t worry, I will keep them coming.

Song Of The Month – August 2018 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies By Panic! At The Disco

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc6vs-l5dkc[/youtube] This a complete throwback of me from a different time. I remember I went through a phase of mild emo-ness. I loved it. I had a friend at school that used to write song lyrics down on paper and pass them to me in class. For ages, I thought she was some sort of philosophical poetical marvel! Turns out…

Liebster Award No. 2

I was shocked when I got a notification in my inbox about someone linking to my blog. And it was because I was a Liebster Award Nominee. That meant that someone had not only noticed my blog, but they liked it. And that was all I ever really wanted. When people say things like “if I’m able to reach just…

Whipping It Up: Cocoa Butter

After the “success” of my whipped Shea Butter, I thought I’d give Cocoa Butter a go. Why not? I mean, it smells like chocolate-y goodness. Surely it would work out almost exactly the same. One butter is the same as another? Yea..

The Inversion Method Part 2 – So How Was It For You?

  This post is beyond late in catching up with my 6 month trial of the Inversion Method. I think the delay reflects how I feel about it. I can’t even tell you how much time I’ve spent putting off writing this conclusion. Here it is, better late than never, I guess! So if you’re good with hints, you’ll realise I’m…

Song Of The Month – June 2018 – Should’ve Been Us By Tori Kelly

  [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE2drlA8vf8[/youtube] With a voice like hers, I’m not sure why she isn’t bigger! But perhaps the market is too crowded or people just haven’t given her a chance but honestly, Tori Kelly is so amazing and that hair!! Had to mention the hair, of course! I love this song and did from the second I first heard it but…

Pettiest Peeves #2

A few months ago, I did a little cleanse of some of my daily irritations in a blog post called Pettiest Peeves. Well, I’m at it again because there is an infinite amount of crap in this world that irritates me. If you’re reading this in a bad mood, use it to get some of that negativity off your chest!

Length Check – 18 Months – More Than Hair

Another quarter of the year has gone which means it’s time for another update! Hair. It’s the thing that grows on your head, that helps keep the heat in, that can add another dimension to a look. And when you lose it, voluntarily like me, you re-think what it means to you. You think about a lot of stuff really.…

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…
