Weekend as a Natural + A Mini Dress Up

Quote - William Faulkner

I spent the weekend stuck indoors bar a few hours because my younger sister has chicken pox! Who even gets that these days! I had no idea it still existed! Anyway I had 3 hours of freedom on Saturday so I decided to get all dressed up and make the most out of it, hair, clothes, shoes and all!!!

 I love the stage I've reached in my Hair journey and transition right now. One minute I'm in a clipped in weave, the next I'm loving the kinked and slightly poofed top bun look. 

I had a wee soppy moment when looking at these pictures, because this time last year there is no way in the world I would have rocked any other look than a smooth.straightened sleek bun, and now... Well lets just say my perception of beauty has changed drastically and I'm just in a happy place!

I achieved this look with a simply bantu knot out, so far that has to be my staple transitioning style. I used a product I love love love and have quite badly left in the dark a.k.a Curl Me Soft Leave-In Hair Cream and of course the previously mentioned Twist and Set Lotion by Design Essentials. I will be doing a long overdue bulk review on some prodcts I was sent by Afrotherapy which included the Curl Me Soft Leave-In Hair Cream so stay tuned for that this week.

In the mean time here are some snaps, have a blessed and truly wonderful monday xxx

Loving this Nude Nail Polish - Toffee by Maxfactor

Took it right back to my "want to be mixed race" secondary school days and achieved the curl with gel and a cotton bud!!! Crack myself up!!!
Can any picture do these enough justice?
Does anyone else tuck in their skinnies?




Avec amour...
