‘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…

On Saturday, my twist out was not the best,…
Remember Leslassa? Last year, I was excited because Leslassa Armour-Shillingford represented her country Dominica at the Miss World pageant, probably the first woman of African origin to contest on the Miss World stage with her naturally kinky hair!

When the ‘Nothing But’ line launched, I saw quite a few reviews on the interwebs so I stalked their website and was just itching to try the products out. So, as part of my Christmas product haul, I decided to go with the deep conditioner, the Nothing But Intense Healing Mask.First impressions:

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…
Nope, just me.When was the last time you cried?

You probably know this already, but I’m a fan of dreadlocks. I love locs. So much, I do. I don’t know if I can commit to not having loose hair for so long, but I’m definitely loc’ing my hair at least once in my lifetime.
For the curious loc-lover like me, or the very opposite; you think locs are crazy…
