Image
Hello beauts! Sorry if I was M.I.A. in the last period, but I've spent all my time moving house, working insanely hours and trying to keep an healthy life (failing miserably). But now I am hereeeee and I can finally share with you my first collaboration with a prestigious and wonderful UK online site.

EMPTY PRODUCT REVIEW || MAYBELLINE "FIT ME" FOUNDATION COCONUT 355

MAYBELLINE FIT ME FOUNDATION COCONUT #355
Let's be honest: is not easy to find a makeup line women of colour friendly. I still have to find the perfect foundation for my skin but I hope I'll find the right answer sooner or later. The first time I've tried this foundation I was really disappointed with the result. I have an extremely oily skin but no acne problems and I was looking for a foundation shine-free.  Maybelline "Fit Me" doesn't help AT ALL my oily-as-hell skin, but that is the only down side! If I apply a good translucent powder after the foundation, my face looks amazing and I don't need any touch up during the day.

The shade that I chose - Coconut 355, the darkest shade available - is perfect for my skin tone. And when I say perfect I mean perfectly perfect!  Everyone says that my skin look flawless and natural as though I have nothing on. That's why I love this foundation! It fives you an incredible natural look. Plus i…

90'S BANTU KNOTS VIBE

Image
VIIIIIIIIBE, VIIIIIIIIIBE, VIIIIIIIIIBE GIRL YOU'VE GOT THAT VIIIIIIIBE!
As soon as I took off my Marley extensions, I knew what my first hairstyle would have been: BANTU KNOTSALL-NIGHT-LONG (literally lol). They are pretty easy to do and they look superfly!! I think the combination dark lippie + bantu knots is really R. Kelly screaming that a certain female girl has a vibe lol To achieve a good bantu knot outfirst I got slightly wet a section of hair with a mixture of water + olive oil, then I applied some coconut oil to seal and the fabulous scented JOCIE ArgMac Organic Argan & Macadamia Oils pomade from Sheabeutimia.  After finishing my bantu knots, I covered my hair with a satin scarf and went to bed. Next day I unravelled my bantu knots and... VOILA`!
What do you think? What is you're favourite 90's song? Let me know!
Have a lovely day peeps!
Almost forgot! Here is a little gift for those of you who wants to feel some vibe this morning.  You can all thank me later.


ETHNIC BLAZER

Good morning, y'all! Today I want to share with you all another outfit with the same heavenly background like myGarden Paradise post. Nomsa is the photographer who did all the work here. I really like this ethnic look thanks to Nomsa's blazer. If you want to see more pictures from her, check out her personal sitehere.
This morning I woke up pretty sleepy because I spent basically all yesterday to take off my Marley Twists and to nurture my lovely natural hair with some Sheabeutimia products (really soon I'm gonna share with you this amazing collaboration, I promise!). I have to be honest: I really missed my hair, like FOH REAL!  Sometimes we don't appreciate enough all the little lucky things that we have in our lives.  Right now I'm wearing some bantu knots that I'm going to unravel before going out.  My plans for this afternoon checking out a new room, do some food shopping, relax and read in this beautiful sunny weather.
I really hope the room will be what I'm l…

HAIR VARIETY || COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2014

Image
The Commonwealth Games is an international, multi-sport eventinvolving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930 and has taken place every four years since then.  I wanted to share this beautiful manifestation not just because I believe sport is very important for an healthy lifestyle and everybody should do it, but because I noticed a lot of hairstyles (natural and not) that has caught my attention. It'so refreshing to see so many natural heads on television to inspire many girls who never heard about the Natural Hair Community or who are just hesitant.
My favourite hairstyle? Ese's Zig zag cornrows. Love them!

Giochi del Commonwealthsono una manifestazione sportiva organizzata dalla Commonwealth Games Federation e tenuta ogni quattro anni, che richiama i migliori atleti delle Nazioni del Commonwealth. La prima edizione, allora nota comeBritish Empire Games, si tenne nel 1930. Voglio condividere qui sul blog alcune delle atlete che hanno partecip…
