I want love to be simple. I want to trust without thinking. I want to be generous with my affection and patience and love unconditionally. It is easier to love a person with their flaws than to weed through them. I want to love the whole person, not parts; and this is how I want to be loved.
Anonymous asked: Who is your best friend and what are some good trends for summer?
I have quite a few, why?
And I’m not too big on trends but for me when I think of summer, some things never really get outdated for example:
- the bright and pastel colours: orange, pinks, reds, yellows, purples, greens, etc.
- everything cropped : denim shorts, tanks, tees, etc.
- prints: florals, stripes, dots, etc.
- cute sandals and flats
- fun accessories
- and a fresh manicure
Anonymous asked: How was your first year of University?
Ahh .. I would say it was good. It wasn’t hard for me to adjust or anything. The course I’m doing is not very popular so the group is small and we get along well because we are basically in all the classes together, so I like that.

Yess, I do. It was okay, a nice lil escape for a few days :)
Anonymous asked: I think you are such a beautiful young woman who seems to have everything going in the right direction and I admire you modesty in how you present yourself. How do you care for your hair, give a run down of a routine that a person can follow to get that natural curly look and the products you use.
Thank for the compliment :)
My routine is quite simple.
I basically just cowash (using conditioner only to wash my hair) every other day or every three days, apply a natural oil (in most cases I use Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil) and my leave-in conditioner (African Pride Shea Butter Miracle leave-in conditioner is what I’m trying out right now) and then style my hair in a wet bun. Once a week or once every two weeks I clarify my hair with a vinegar rinse ( one part vinegar to 3 parts water) and apply to my scalp, massage in and let it sit for 10 mins then rinse and cowash.
If I am going for a more defined curly look I skip the leave-in and just apply some EcoStyler gel to my wet hair in small sections in a smoothing motion to define my curls then I air dry my hair.
If I am going for a looser curly look, I do a “flat-twist out” (search it on YouTube if you don’t know what it is). I use Raw African Shea Butter when I do mine.
And if I am planning to straighten, I clarify my hair with a vinegar rinse, deep condition, rinse, leave-in and air dry. Then straighten my hair in very small pieces by detangling, and applying Shea butter to the piece and then flat iron it.
Feel free to ask if you need me to explain anything else :)!
