So…I found this look online and it’s super easy to do if you have medium to long kinky hair. I did a similar style for valentines day…check out my look here.
My recommendations for this style (being a self-proclaimed natural hair ambassador):
– Do it on damp hair.
-Use a moisturizing hair lotion and oil to add and lock in moisture.
-If it is difficult to get a neat back wrap, use bobby pins to secure your back wrap as you go.
-For those that have ‘tough Nigerian hair’, like me, you could do this hair right after you loosen braids, it gives your hair that naturally curly look.

Hello Beautiful People,
This week, ‘Loosing you‘ by Solange has been playing in my ears, it’s not a new video but I came across it early in the year on DSTV Soundcheck. I absolutely love the video – she’s so fun, fresh, colorful and vibrant. I also love the concept. I’m guessing natural hair lovers will love this too. This video makes me want to get Ankara trouser suits and get down on the streets of gidi.Who knows where I can get ankara pant suits?
Feed your eyes and have a great week ahead.
Affirmation for the week: Great and positive things come easy to me.

Good morning world,
I am beyond ecstatic this morning….considering. I came across this video on friday and It has been on repeat. Destiny’s Child did a song ‘When Jesus say yes’. Don’t ask me why it’s ‘say‘ not ‘says‘. According to ChristianPost.com, Destiny’s Child is doing a Christian-Themed Album called ‘Journey To Freedom‘. This song has made my week. I love Beyonce’s hair and her white maxi look, the open sides et al- funky and elegant, just the way I like it. I love Michelle’s look, the Boyfriend Jean and Boho top. I hope you love this video/song as much as I do. Have an amazing week.
Know where I can find Beyonce’s chocker?

Hello Beautiful people,
I came across this video today and I found it rather enlightening and touching. I always love Dove videos anyway.
Let me know what you think.

Hello Beautiful people,
This week I’m loving the “pata pata” video below. I saw it a while back and I have been in love with it ever since then. Being a vintage lover and all, I love the vintage theme, the makeup, the hair, the moves,the concept…basically everything. I’m also loving the 4 day holiday. This Dollface chic has the most amazing vintage style, she is officially my style crush of the week.
Sit back and take a ride back in time…lol.

Hello gorgeous people,
I was driving home the other day, I was super pissed off and having one of those ‘can’t wait for this day to end’ kinda days. Then I heard this song over the radio and it made me laugh, so it’s officially my Video of the week. What are your favorite videos this week?
I just found out she did a Nigerian version of Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Don’t You Worry Child‘…I usually don’t like copies of songs but I love her vocals on the track.
Here’s to Yemi Alade’s ‘Johnny’
