SPRING INTO SPRING WITH A POP OF COLOUR


When it comes to handbags I normally play it safe by picking a black one . Mainly because black goes with literally anything. But come on , wouldn't it be nice to have some pop of colour (Farai actually made me think twice about getting bags in different colours other than black ).In as much as I would like that , I think it really depends on what sort of colour handbag it is. Which brings me to my latest edition to my collection. I went for red mainly because its oozes confidence and pizazz.

HOW TO STYLE AFRICAN PRINT THIS SPRING

AFRICAN PRINT

Spring is upon us and I love the fact that I get to spruce up my wardrobe. Being of African heritage, I take pride in rocking African print clothing. I am on the hunt for some upcoming African designers to collaborate with so if you have any in mind, kindly let me know. I was lucky enough to have this gorgeous skirt gifted to me some time last year( previous post) from M.A.DKollection. The designer , Ifiok is of Nigerian decent and her designs have a youthful vibrant feel to them. Do check out her ETSY store for a variety of pieces to pick from.



NEW HAIRDO: BOX BRAIDS HAIRSTYLE

Box Braids Hairstyle

When it comes to my hair, I literally switch up constantly because I easily get bored of the same look and the other reason is simply because I can. I feel my twenties are the years I can explore with different looks . 

Box braids are the quintessential hairstyle for women who need versatility. Famous people like Solange and Keke Palmer have been rocking the look too. It's clear to see that braids are popular in the black community.

Personally I love the fact that braids are low maintenance.I don't have to worry about curling or straightening my hair when I have braids in , I can wear them up or down depending on the look I am going for. I also love bold looks as seen in my choice of curly big hair and boxy braids.

Box braids is a good protective Hairstyle too. I am not a naturalist but I make sure my relaxed hair is healthy so I like to take a break from chemicals and heat . Let your hair breathe mama . A little tip I will share with you is: if you are going to go for this hair style trim your ends just before you get the braids done . I was amazed at the growth of my hair a couple of months after I took my previous braids out . Amazing if you ask me ! 

So if you are not yet convinced that this is the IT LOOK , hope these pictures win you over . I recently got them done so I prefer to wear them down but I will be sharing more looks on the blog . I used  6 packs of expression kenakoline hair to achieve this look.

Ever had box braids Hairstyle ?What type of braids do you go for ?
