Instapicks Backlogs #2

Hey beautiful people,

Did your week go well? Mine was just so-so.

I hope you’ve entered for the giveaway that Nafisah and Oge of Coily Head of Hair and I are having.

It’s my birthday tomorrow by the way! I will probably have a post up tomorrow but in the event that I don’t, I just thought to let you know. I will be a quarter of a century old and I sure do feel old! 😦

You know how you have so many things you wish you would have achieved by a certain age and then that age comes around and you’ve basically achieved nada on your list of goals? You don’t? *cough* Me neither! *nose grows Pinocchio style*

Anyways, here’s the rest of my Instapicks Backlogs and they are sort of a lot.

Enjoy!

In the days leading up to today, I was so excited and then 9pm yesterday comes around and I’m like “yeah, I’m going to bed guys”. In the words of Wizkid, “I can’t explaiiiin”.

What I wore: Denim kimono

Hey guys,

It’s been a hot minute since I did an outfit post.

Every now and then, I stumble on some awesome, really wearable pieces in my mum’s closet that she’s had since I was little or possibly before I was born.

This blast-from-the-past denim kimono is one thing I just had to take.     Continue reading

Instapicks of the week #09

Hey!

If you missed Instapicks last week, please accept my sincere apologies for not posting.

You see, what had happened was… I don’t even remember what happened.

Let’s all hold hands and sing the theme song of Frozen as we forgive and let it go.

I’ll more than make up for it with this post because you are in for a picture overload. Brace yourself!

Thanks to ‘Denike, I found a new way to post the Instagram pictures and videos here in such a way that you can see each person’s handle, caption (which on some occasions is even doper than the picture) etc!

I’m so excited!

So enjoy!

Revamping braids


Hey guys,

You know how you spend some good money on buying braiding hair/attachment/extensions and on paying the hair stylist to make it for you? Then you spend a good amount of time sitting down to get the hair braided and by the time you’re done, you can barely feel your butt? Then 4 weeks down the line the hair starts looking old in your eyes and you’re tired of it?

Girrrrl, been there, done that!

I’m going to share with you 3 easy ways to revamp your braids/twists and give them a new look so you can enjoy every single kobo you spent!

Bonsoir,

This week, I wasn’t so present on Instagram and I hope this doesn’t tell in the pictures.

How are you guys doing?

I’ve been slightly overwhelmed with work but I feel a bit refreshed now, thanks to the weekend. Hopefully this refreshed feeling doesn’t vanish by Tuesday!

Anywho, here are my picks for the week:

Tag: I am more happy than not

Hello lovelies,

I was tagged to do this post by Toyin of ‘Life With Cassandra’ who is on a blog-break right now. Thanks girl!

This tag was originally created by Bookish and Awesome. (Is it grammatically correct to say ‘originally created’?)

This post is basically about those feel-good things that make me more happy than not.

Of course, I can’t possibly list EVERYTHING that makes me happy but I’ll list a few:

Product review: Vitale Olive Oil Hair Mayonnaise 


Hey guys,

I decided to take a break from the Instapicks Of The Week post, seeing as the last one was on Wednesday, and instead do one of my long overdue product reviews.

I can’t even remember when I bought this product because I’ve had it for so long. As you can see, it is even dusty.

So let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
