WELCOME BACK FOR WINTER
Hi guys, before I get to posting all the back log of stuff I have for you, I want to wish all my wonderful blog readers aVERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Considering I went natural and started this blog in January this year; Christmas seemed like miles away so I'm extra happy to be here now and sharing it with you guys.
I've been desperate to give you a quick update as I was absent for much of November due to being ill but thank GOD I'm well again and ready to give a brief recap of November...
|Because I was ill for most of the month my hair looked|
like this almost the whole time - 2 Flat Twists along the
front and 2 pigtails at the back - Simples!
|My Mum holding my baby cousin, when my Nan|
and Aunt came to visit me. My baby cousin's
hair is growing soo fast.
|The weekend when I thought I was well, I met up with |
Stacey TheNaprika (UK Natural Hair Vlogger) to go to a screening of
The Story of Lover's Rock. I kept the same style and just accessorised
with a scarf that I tied into a big bow.
|The Story of Lover's Rock is a must see for anyone who wants to know|
about Black Britain of the 70's & 80's. This sort of
documentation of a part of history, so directly relevant to so many
people regardless of race, is priceless. I cant commend Menelik Shabazz
enough on his work. The unheard stories of an unclaimed generation, finally given
a platform. This film made me so proud to be Black British, and if like mine,
your family is from the Caribbean then definitely DO NOT MISS THIS!!

|I loved the Up-do Stacey was wearing on the night. Check out her|
YouTube channel for her up-do tutorial: The Naprika on YouTube
|We were very lucky that the Film Director Menelik Shabazz|
made a special apperance after the screening. After his speech I
bought one of his earlier DVDs and had a word with him about his work.
|I had a brilliant night with Ketisha celebrating her birthday at |
Zenna Bar. Her Frohawk was Fantastic! She had it styled at
a natural hair salon in Stratford (East Ldn)
|My first attempt at hair accessories - A paper flower and a bow.|
I'm gona keep practicing, if I get good I might start selling some...
|These are the first designs for my Crystal Afro Tops on paper.... |
|And these are the very first design printed up on clothing. |
I'm so pleased!
|What do you think guys?|
So that sums up November for me. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it the Natural November event in Covent Garden, but I heard good reports so I'm looking forward to next year.
For now though, it's officially time to get ready for Christmas. xx
