THROW BACK THURSDAY GRADUATION DAY!!











Graduation day!!!  who started throw back Thursday ?? Genuine question made me really think I have not found the answer yet. 

The one day I looked forward to  for 4 long years.

You do not fully understand or comprehend the Joy of graduation until it's your day. After all the sleepless nights, studying from morning until night. Looking for empty rooms to revise and buying expensive coffee. 

Congratulations to all the 2016 graduates pre school, high school college and university. A chapter in your life closed. 

After graduating I realised the biggest lessons you learn are outside the lectures, discipline to turn up to your lectures without your parents harassing you, okay maybe them saying you better get a first class the day they dropped you off made you get up and actually turn up to your classes. Whichever the case you still went I Hope!!. 

Learning to tell yourself you actually have to go home to your house in that one late party that everyone stays until morning. You start thinking your the only one with 9am Lectures because others never seem to want to go home. The next lesson you learn are the friends you make for life, God filters friends and your left with the best who bring you that first class. For me I am grateful to each and every lesson I learnt in university, some tough times but only made me stronger 

Back to fashionnnnn.

I wore a bright pink dress ( Lipsy) and some big black heels!! ( Lipsy) for some reason I can not find the full picture of me without the gown hehehehe!! Will update the blog once I find it.  

I would advice wear heels that you are very confortable wearing especially  if your graduation hall involves you walking up the stairs. I was soo nervous about those stairs, I held my breathe all the way until I got to the top. Make sure you dress your best, this is your day. Pick a dress you can flaunt with.  Simple jewellery is the best do not wear bangles that will make noise while your walking and their trying to call people's names heheheehe. Make sure your hair will accommodate the graduation hat and make sure you take some hair pins, you will need them trust me!. 

Lastly enjoy your day make sure of it you deserve regardless of the grade! Remember its what you do after graduation not what is written on your certificate  :)


Need help need inspiration below is an outfit to inspire you and get you excited.   If you have graduated what did you wear for graduation??  How was your graduation??

LETS TALK ABOUT HAIR

 Relaxed black hair


People ask me what I did to make my hair grow? First of all I am just blessed that I inherited my mothers hair, however keeping my hair on my head and in the best condition possible, I use various products.To be honest I neglect my hair a lot, I know that's not what you want to read when your looking to grow your hair, but I have to be honest. I have no idea what to do with it apart from a pony tail, literally almost everyday.  Have you ever had those moments where you have wanted something for so long then you realise you do not know what to do with it anymore? Welcome to my world. Always dreamt of having long hair.

This is my longest post for a while but its because its a huge topic so today I will go through

  • Why protective hairstyles can be an advantage :) and a disadvantage :(. 
  • The two hair products I have used in the past few years.


Firstly my hair is relaxed but this goes to all hair types, natural, relaxed, whether you braid or put weave all the time.

Since I neglect my hair, it's best to have protective hairstyles, Braids and Weaves, and aof course the question I get why you covering your hair you have such beautiful hair?? but it's difficult. However I feel that this is where a lot of ladies go wrong, protective hairstyles are only protective when they have been done well and by someone who knows the value of hair not the money your going to pay for your hair. But it is not always the hairstylist fault ladies do not keep that weave or braids or whatever for longer than necessary it will protect your hair and then break it, BREAK IT.

So now I have let those feeling go, lets proceed. when I actually take care of my hair what do I use. Triple Gro. Let me make it clear, I have not been paid by any of the companies below to review this products, So this are  products that I have used, so it's my utmost truthful opinion.  So I am putting the amazon links so you can see how much they are. If you take time to browse on the internet might be in luck and get a cheaper one. I recommend buying from Amazon or Ebay If its not in your local shop, the reason being you can read reviews and make sure your buying the genuine product and not the copy cat.

Back to Triple Gro , I believe this product contributed massively to my hair growth, I used to wrap my hair all the time, when it was fashion to wrap your hair with cling film lool good days. Maybe I need to revisit this technique Triple Gro moisturises damaged areas of the hair and prevents breakage which enables your hair to grow healthily.  It  Massages your head, bargain do not need to go for massages it feels amazing  i am talking about free massages!!!!!

The next product I started using about three years ago is Dr. Miracle's feel it Anti-breakage strengthening creme     as it says it prevents and stops breakage and strengthens your hair. The reason your hair needs strength is to be able to withstand everything you put it through, imagine all the pulling it goes through, the heat, the sweat. Its too much for hair, so you need to help it.

If both cremes  Triple Gro  and Dr. Miracle's feel it Anti-breakage strengthening creme do the same thing why do I buy both?? I wanted to try something new, after some time your hair can become I want to  say anti-tolerate but thats for food hehehe, The hair becomes too used to product it looses its little magic so need to swap products around, not that it does not work anymore but it becomes less effective but if you swap around both products stay effective, this is not any expert opinion  I just found out it worked for me. Also have to remember each product as a different element in it, so If you can use both.

I love this products because they really do what they say they do. They are other elements that are involved in taking care of the hair but even when I neglect my hair I know its moisturised, the number 1 rule KEEP THAT HAIR MOISTURISED.

So you know how serious moisturising your hair is I took the liberty to see what another blogger was saying about hair moisturising.   Click here to read more on hair care by Brenda.

  1. "Moisture– Many persons are unaware of the power of moisture for hair retention. Moisture serves several roles, a very important one is to make your hair supple. Supple hair does not break as easily as dry or brittle hair. A good moisture balance is needed to retain hair growth. A very good source of moisture for both inside and outside our bodies is water. If you are not drinking enough water your hair will get dry and brittle.
    Similarly, if you do not apply enough moisture to your hair it will get dry and break. Think about a piece of cloth left to dry in the sun with no fabric softener; the cloth will get hard, dry and rough. On the other hand fabric softener will not only make the cloth smell good, but it will make it soft and pleasant to touch as well. It is the same with our hair, the fabric softener is our figurative moisturizer. There are several moisturizers on the market we will explore them and tell you if they are good to be used. Important point to note: moisture is not oil!"

Also before you buy hair products know your hair type and texture. That's why you find comments like I used this products for months and nothing happened. Hair has life that is why it grows, so you need to give it the right food to grow, if it does not like the food you give it, change it. So try different products and use them correctly until your hair says yummy and grows.

What is your favourite hair product??

Do you have any questions??

FIRST TIME BUYING PERFUME!!!




I know you grasped once you saw that title, FIRST TIME BUYING PERFUME???? WHAT? HOW? YOU MUST SMELL? calm down, first of all NO i do not smell and if you think I do please do private message me hheheheheeh. on a serious note, I have always received perfume as gifts, just have the grace to receive perfumes. So this time I do not know what happened for my birthday no perfume :( So I actually had to go and buy one!! I WAS SHOCKED!! I know right what happened. So for my first Perfume purchase I went to river Island, I know you were expecting me to say Debenhams, perfume shops, No no not me.

 I will tell you why?? Since I was little I have very little tolerance for smells, the smallest smell can irritate me all day, So I really can not stand strong perfume smells. I do not like people spraying in my room please go and do it somewhere else, its just not my thing. So since I had to buy my own perfume.

I went and did a little research most facts are from BYRDIE 1. your actually meant to spray the perfume on your hair not your skin!! Who knew keeps the scent longer than your skin and also diffuses the scent more easily especially if you have long hair due to motion. 2. Do not spray 20 poofs because you can not smell it, you get used to the scent so you may not smell it but others can. Again please do not over poof poof. 3. The most expensive perfume is million dollar worth SERIOUSLY ITS ACTUALLY WORTH $1 million ( DKNY Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle – $1 million ) If you want to see the top 10 click here 




So my perfume was not $1 Million it was £12.99. The smell is medium not too much. By now you should all know my favourite shop is River Island so  why not try the perfume as well. That's right I am a loyal customer hehehehe.


Below are some of the perfumes sold by River Island I have not tested all of them but click on the page and see which ones you like
