S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

E M P T I E S: (SWIPE LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

OOTD: Denim on Denim (Casual Version)

Hey divas and gents! It’s Monday again. Time to drop those bottles and glasses and pick up your pens and agendas. What’s on your schedule this week? Oh, I’ve got loads on mine. There’s work stuff, blog duty, not to talk of the many functions I’ve got coming up. Oh and did I mention moving house? My list is usually ongoing but let’s not let that get in the way.

Yesterday, I decided to don a casual ‘fit for an evening meal out with the sugar in my brew. I’ve done the ultimate double denim dare before in one of my OOTD before.  Only this time I ditched the heels for a comfy pair of suede flats and flounced up my transitioning hair with an African print hair band. Also these are Zara washed blue jeans with zips on the side and not distressed like the previous pair.

Yesterday felt like a cool and perfect day to just be laid back and enjoy a good walk in the sun. I accessorized with my favourite go-to pink flats and an ankara print headband.

Am in the middle of a transition which makes my hair a challenge to manage. I haven’t had a flat iron to it in a while now and that is the best decision ever.Loving my wash ‘n go routine. So liberating. Don’t have to worry about flat hair days anymore. The only thing I need right now moisture and softness, Can someone please give me ideas on how to retain that? 🙁 As much as I loving these bendy rollers-achieved curls, I’ll have to put submit my ‘fro to some protective stylin’ sooner or later given the impending autumn season. I am no make up guru but with the help of amazing makeup tutorials by some of my favourite MUA I managed to dab on some Mac Rebel lipstick which is my new favourite.

What do you think about this look? When did I wear it better? Casual denim or dressy?

Drop yo’ thoughts below.

Denim shirt- Tk Maxx

Jeans- Zara (here)

Bag- You know this my old bag…Anywho, Clarks.

Pink flats – Clarks (similar here)

Hahaha, God knows where I was running off to.  What do you think of my attempt to execute an afro curly puff?
