ABY Naturalista: Nikki Venus

By Posted on 4 886

 Hey there, ABYers! I was having that great TGIF-feeling on this cheery day until I switched on my phone and read that there’d been another bombing in Abuja, Nigeria. Please take a few minutes of your time and pray for the families of those who passed in the unfortunate incident. Seriously, this terrorism has got to stop.

ABY Naturalista: Brittney

Hey beauties! I’ve realized my beauty and hair posts get most of my traffic (check the sidebar —–> for my MOST POPULAR posts), so I’ve decided to serve up more beauty related material.

Natural hair is tough to maintain! A lot of people have been going natural lately, including moi, so I thought it was best to scout for some SERIOUSLY HOT naturalistas on the web and ask them what they did to maintain their nappy locks.

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.
