Rekindled Love Affair

I’ve rekindled my love affair with braids, especially  Box Braids!
In secondary school I wore braids most of the time but grew out of them by the time i got to  my second year of college. I think it was because I was training to become a hairdresser  learning, experimenting with  so many new style ideas and techniques that braids quickly  became boring. Now they’ve  come back with a Bang this summer.
 I've been thinking about braiding my hair again for a while now not because they are on trend but because there are benefits to wearing braids, believe it or not!
BeyoncĂ© and Solange Knowles are among the many celebrities who are wearing this 90’s retro hairstyle.

For my lovely readers who do not know what Braids are or how they are installed, I’ll give you a brief overview.
Box Braids basically extensions which are platted in with your natural hair to add extra length and thickness. Synthetic hair is normally used to achieve this look(Although Human hair can also be used its your choice) they are often referred to as protective styles she they give your hair a break from the day to day stress that we women often put our hair through. this is what helps with the growth of your hair, you can wear the extensions for up to six weeks, sometimes longer if maintained correctly

you can style and treat them more or less the way you would your natural hair, I love the high bun style the most as its so versatile.

Happy Monday

Get Strapped



River Island


The ankle strapped sandal is back again this summer and I’m so pleased. This style of sandal is one of my all-time favourites, they can automatically add a touch of fabulosity to just about any outfit be it boyfriend jeans and a baggy white T or a classic evening dress. 
I’ve come across a few over the past few weeks mostly from shops like Zara, River Island and Office.
Zara are well known for being able to produce Knock-off items,  the designer Tom Ford recently vented his frustration about Zara  to the Daily Mail. They do say  imitation is the  sincerest form of flattery Tom! 
As much as we would all like to treat ourselves to a pair of your shoes every month and wear other designer garments fresh off the runway, the truth is that  it isn’t going to happen!! 
You can go into just about any high street shop and bag yourself a pair of these versatile Strapped sandals, so come on lovelies let’s get strapped this summer.

Holiday snaps

We've been back for just over a week now and I'm still trying to adjust to the UK weather and times.
Our holiday was amazing!! I seriously don't know why it has taken us so long to return to Jamaica. 
I've been extremely busy over the past few days go back to work and getting ready for my cousins wedding which was on Sunday (post coming soon!!)
Above are a few of my favourite snaps taken whilst in Jamaica..
