Natural Hair Diaries

Image
Hi loves

Today I'd like to share with you my go to hair products and hair care routine. Sometime last year I decided to go natural. I stopped chemically treating my hair. Transitioning for me was not easy. I would wash my hair and when I air dry it (which took the whole day), it would get tangled.  The ends of my hair remained straight and it was hard to comb through. So I decided to go for the big chop...

This year in January I had my first hair cut in two years. My hair was so short, the barber could not keep my transition hair because my hair was too short at the back. I had to start from the bottom but I loved the outcome.



The products I started using were from Aunt Jackie's coil and curls collection. I used their ohsoclean shampoo and curl la la defining curl custard. I loved the smell and feel on my hair. I felt as though my  hair was a little dry after shampooing. When I'm lazy to wash my hair I would spritz a concoction of olive oil, coconut oil and argan oil in wa…

New Year! New You?

Hi Loves!

First things first, Happy 2017 to all my readers. I'd like to wish you guys all the best for 2017.



It's the start of a new year and a lot of us are thinking of ways that we could improve our lives. I personally don't do New Years resolutions mainly because I feel under pressure and I never complete anything on that list. What I do is set one goal at a time and see if I can stick to it. When that one task is finished I move to the next one.

Currently I'm focused on my health and well being. Lately I have been neglecting myself to the point where I had a hard time looking at myself in the mirror. My problem was not with the weight gain but not feeling pretty in my own skin. I've gone past that now...

This year I'm hoping to stick to clean eating habits, pampering myself and loving myself. I also wish to focus less on weight loss and focus more on self acceptance. You do not need to be a certain weight or shape to slay. This year I am being myself and I …

Travel Diaries - Cape Town

Image
Hello Loves!

A week ago a friend and I went to Cape Town for the weekend. It was the first time for both of us. We stayed at the Lagoon Beach Hotel. I enjoyed my stay there and part of me wishes I had stayed longer.



 View of Table Mountain from the hotel
Cape Town is one of South Africa's capital cities and it is also known as the Motherland. It is a huge tourist attraction because of the Table mountain which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Robben Island, Cape of Good Hope and V&A Waterfront to name a few. Cape Town is quite a small city as we were able to navigate around Table Mountain in our small rental car.  

On Top of Table Mountain

It's a beautiful city situated next to the Atlantic Ocean. Growing up on the east side of the country I've always been exposed to the Indian Ocean which is pretty warm. We took a drive along Camps Bay and Hout Bay. I wasn't brave enough to swim because the water there is freezing cold and it was very windy. The mornings a…

Strawberry Sorbet

Image
Hi Loves!!!!
Feels so good to be back on the first day of Spring!
Today's post is a food post. These days I'm more of a foodie than a fashionista. Being a foodie has it's downfalls... I gained weight and couldn't fit into my clothes. Sigh! 
The recipe I have for you is delicious, you will love it! It's great for hot sunny days and plus winter days are over, we can now indulge in sweet frozen treats.
You'll need:  1 punnet of strawberries  200ml of water 3 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons sugar


Method: 1. Purée the strawberries 
2. In a large pan boil the water, add the lemon juice and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. 3. Once the mixture is cool add to the strawberries and freeze.  4. Purée the frozen mixture before serving. 
Voilà! 
Your strawberry sorbet is ready to eat! 
Unfortunately this only serves 1 but you can add more of the ingredients for more people. 
This recipe is easy but the hardest part is blending the frozen mixture. Mine was very hard, I had left it…

Anti-Valentine

Hello Lovely People

Valentine's Day... A day where couples spoil each other with flowers; chocolate; lingerie etc etc.
To me it's just like any other day. I hardly do anything special for anyone on Valentine's Day. This year was a lil different. I still didn't spoil my significant other but at least I didn't spend it in bed watching fitness videos on YouTube ;).

I actually did something... I went to a Wedding. I kinda like the idea of having a wedding on Valentine's Day, it's sorta cheesy but I still think its pretty romantic. Every year on the 14th of February it would always be your anniversary and not about Saint Valentine.

At this posh affair I wore a red off the shoulder dress. This is actually the first time in a very long time that I'm wearing red on Valentine's. I specifically chose this dress because I'm currently loving the off the shoulder trend. It's feminine and chic.






Pardon me for the poor quality pictures. You know my struggl…

Mom Knows Best

Hello Lovely People!

Today's outfit features an item from my Mom's closet. Raiding my mom's closet was one of the best things I've done in the past year (hihi). This white shirt is just awesome. I fell in-love with it the second I tried it on. I love that shirt dresses are trending this season and I didn't have to pay for mine. It's different, retro, minimalistic and I'm totally nuts about the detail on the front. I love the attached waist coat with embroidery, totes amaze!


I paired this wonderful piece of clothing (the shirt) with leatherette leggings. I'm not brave enough to wear a shirt dress alone. I had to wear something underneath. I accessorised the look with black court heels, a watch and a clutch bag. I didn't want to overwhelm the shirt with too many accessories as it has a simplistic look to it. I went for a monochrome look to maintain its simplicity.






I'm learning to appreciate the sense of style my Mom had back then. I too would'…
