Have you tried this?

Hello there,

A few months ago, thanks to my PJism (product junkie -ism ha ha), i bought a conditioner from Origins after i learned how to read the list of ingredients used in our hair products. I might have used it once and then put it aside. This week i was looking into my stash (yes that's the right word) and to be honest i completely forgot about it.

Let me introduce you: Origins knot free

The list of ingredients is impressive as there is no harsh chemicals in there. And it smells "clean" like a Savon de Marseille. it has a good slip and does the job: eliminating the knot.
It is not cheap :( (about £13) but knowing myself i will probably buy it again!!

Hey ladies!!!
If you are like me and you are lurking on NC (Naturally Curly) everyday (or any othey forum)to check out new products, already noticed that most of the products the ladies are referring to are quite difficult to get hold of here!

Now the other day i was doing a bit of research and came across the Bristish Curlies website ( where you can find Curls products and also the Kinky Curly range.I ordered mine and received them in 2 days!!!Go on, get yours!xxxx

What is your face wash?

Well i like to change my face wash regularly.

I have found the perfect skin routine (thank you Clinique - will come to that later) but I love to test face washes.

As for now the one I am using gives me great satisfaction: Dior Creme Moussante Nettoyante Magique
It removes makeup and dirt perfectly and leaves your skin squeaky clean!!

The latest addition to my (very) long list of "stuff"

The Braun Silk-Epil Expressive Wet & Dry

Boy i love this!
I had an old epilator from Braun which was fine enough but then this baby came out and what convinced me is the fact that you can use it in the bath or shower. How cool is that???
Silky smoth legs are guaranteed!! and the "smart light" is brilliant! you can track every hair and get rid of it so easily. It is less painful than the one i had but then again, the legs are not were waxing or epilation are the most painful!

It's pricey (about £100) but right now it's on promotion: 1/3 of the price off!!

Run for it!
I can't tell you how many boots i went into to find it. It's better to go to the big ones.
I found mine at the one in High Street Kensington.

Today...9 months into transition

One day, after a fantastic braid-out I came back home, washed my hair and let it air-dry.

And decided to flat iron it.

All of a sudden, right in the middle of the process (and I mean, I have tons of hair so being able to do half of it was a big deal), I got so mad, I grabbed some scissors and choped more than half of the length.

I do that every 2-3 years. It was quite a miracle that i kept it for that long honestly!

I think I did because the boyfriend was far away and i was a bit down and everything..

When he came back he loved it!

and I do too :)

And look how pretty:
