If like me, you have natural afro hair, you will know about the importance of protective hair styling to prevent hair breakage. Keeping it fresh and exciting can sometimes be tricky and there is often a tendency to stick with the hairstyle you are most comfy with. This was me. With a couple of exceptions, I have not really deviated from my full head weave with blunt fringe for 2 and a half years. That's a long time, isn't it?

Affordable swimwear on the high street- Summer 2014

A girl can never have too much swimwear. Fact! With us girls liking to take countless selfies whilst on the beach, no one wants to be seen sporting the same swimwear all the time. Variety equals choice and choice is always a good thing. Admittedly, I own in excess of 25 bikinis and swimsuits, and I will no doubt invest in more for my upcoming travels. Bikinis do for me what shoes do for other women. They give me life! 

Here are some of my favourite picks of swimwear from the high street for summer 2014.

How do you know when you are on the right path?

Life is complex at the best of times. Even when you try to make it simple, something unexpected always creeps up on you and makes you have to switch up your plans real quick. I guess that's the beauty of life right? I mean, it would be pretty boring if  unplanned stuff didn't happen. 

In all of it's complexities and confusion, life has a way of sometimes making us doubt what we are doing and why we are doing it. Life did this to me recently.
