Hellurrrr guys!

Just a quick hair update. I’m wearing crochet braids again. This time, I used 2 packs of Noble Afro Kinky (or was it Afro Twist?) Braid. The hair cost me 750 naira a pack at Marian Market.

My ever helpful roommate F did my cornrows and I attached the hair myself, with the aid of a big bobby pin. It took me 3 episodes of Once Upon A Time,that is, about 2 hours to do my crochet…

The Memory of Love

‘The Memory of Love’ is a beautiful novel by Aminatta Forna. I read this in June.

I absolutely love it, and it’s definitely my latest firm favourite. I learnt so much, I had to stop and think about some points, it made me feel really grateful that I can read, and even more happy that I enjoy reading. When was the last time a book made you feel this way? Seriously. I love you Aminatta, and I’m…

#HairofTheWeekend

Hey guys!

How are you? :)

I spent the weekend with my family and one of my best girls (hadn’t seen her in months!) My baby brother graduated, to the glory of God! I wish my break was longer *sob sob* lol, but I’m back at work, and with nothing to do today, I just thought I’d show you my hair did. I had one good hair day, and one bad not so good one.

On Saturday, my twist out was not the best,…

Story, Story! Story!!

One blessed day, I twisted my hair with a crazy load of home-made Flaxseed Gel.I’m quite heavy handed with products. Nothing like dime size in my book LOL but clearly, I have to add flaxseed gel to the short list of exceptions. Two days later, I unraveled with the hopes of having a bomb twist out BUT, it was a tragedy. I had some definition…
