☆SOTW: Ms. Jaie- Kilon Poppin' (Music Video) .☆

Heya guys,

Im back with my song of the week and let me tell you this song is what I call a TUNEEEEE and a half :D. I recently came across this song called Kilon Poppin' (which is a way of asking What's Happening in Pidgin English) and from the first listen I was hooked!

Not only is the song catchy and fun her vocals had me mesmerised. Nowadays I feel that it is hard to come across good female Nigerian singers who can produce up-beat songs whilst still maintaining strong vocals. I can only think of a few such as Omawunmi and Waje but I would have to say Ms. Jaie is definitely up there with them, as she doesn't fail to deliver in this track.

Check out the video below:

Anyways guys I have some album reviews and film reviews coming up pretty soon so be on the lookout :)

Until next time guys...Peace & God bless

☆OOTN: Red Hot Rhythm.☆

Heya guys, 

So I'm back with another OOTN. Excuse the toilet pictures but no-one ever helps me take pictures so you gotta do what you gotta do right?!

If you haven't noticed by now I am not a skinny girl (I know shock horror! lol) and It is kind of a struggle finding certain outfits that fit my body right, I'm sure a lot of you can relate! Well I came across this lovely little boutique in Walthamstow market (East London) which surprisingly stocks very nice formal dresses for a range of different sizes. I can't remember the name of the store  (do forgive me) but the label on the dress is called 'Closet'.

☆.Protective Style: Styling Crotchet Braids.☆

Heya guys,

So I just wanted to show you some random ways I have been styling my crotchet braids since I've had them in. I should be taking them out soon as its coming to four weeks of them being installed but I must say this is definitely a GO-TO hairstyle for me!

☆.Protective Style: Crotchet Braids.☆

I loveeee doing crotchet braids, they are so easy and quicker to do than most other styles. Here I tried a different braid pattern. I have done a tutorial for this style previously which you can check out here.
I forgot to take a picture of the hair I used but the colour is 33.

I began with freshly washed and treated hair.

Blow-dried it with grapeseed oil as a heat protectant, see the shrinkage!!

☆.Natural Hair: Simple Styling 2 ways.☆

Here are some picture of how I made two hairstyles out of one. For me being a natural with 4c texture I find that whenever I do things such as twist-outs or braid-outs they become puffy within minutes of me unravelling them. 

This hairstyle pictured below is a chunky twist-out in the back and mini twists which I decided to leave in at the front to create a fringe. This was my day hairstyle.
