The way Africans are demonized in the media is disgusting.But today was one of those days when I said Fuck western beaut standards.I am doing me 360 days a year.This headscarf inspired by the Fulani and Tuareg women of Niger.Team Africa

Why is it so hard for the west to understand that its wealth is built on the back of Africans pain ,suffering and wealth.Its time to celebrate diverse of Africa and not just western European Caucasian beauty .FYBStandards.

October Shopping Haul

I have brought quite a few things in October and they took quite a while to be delivered ,as many items came from India or China. First thing I got was a floral turban . Its great way to cover your hair when your having a bad hair day or just can’t be bother to do your hair.Its was dirt cheap and only £2.99.And its feels lovely and soft plus its stretchy. turban floral

I also brought a EcoTools Buffing brush ,for putting on my foundation.I am happy with the brush as putting my foundation on with my fingers and a sponge was getting messy. I brought it on Ebay for £5.99 ,there were some stray hairs but I just putted them out. Its worth the money and it makes my foundation look nice. I also brought my first bluffing brush ,for applying makeup Foundation . img_20171114_144204-433763278.jpgI

I also brought Jamaican black castor oil for my fibroids .It’s amazing for getting rid of the pain and relaxing the body. Its just a pity in not available on NHS.Its expensive too.

 

I also brought several scarves in baby Pink , Purple form the market in Arndale centre . I also brought one metre of Red cotton jersey for a headscarf as I was struggling to find a headscarf made of jersey cotton.I wish I didn’t buy this cotton jersey as its a bit stiff and doesn’t have a soft touch to it.I should have brought viscose instead but you live and learn.Its still a lovely colour though.

Ebay Paint Haul

I brought several items from Ebay this month and I brought for new paints , for learning to paint .I was looking for cheap quality paints but with lots of colours for mixing and ex.I have brought Daler Rowney paint before and it lasted for years. So I thought I would try them again.

The first one I brought was Daler Rowney Acrylic Simply 24 set ,they look lovely and its contains my favourite colour Fuchsia Pink. Look forward to using them.

The second set I brought was there Simply Oil 24 set , I was disappointed with this set as there’s no Fuschia pink colour. So I will have to mix the colour but it was a bargain at £10.95 .I will test them out in the next few weeks and see what there like. As they are the cheapest set Daley Rowney do and there for beginners not professional artists. I think there, work fine for a beginners like me.

Channeling Naomi Campbell

Winters drawing in ,I need some new hair.I have been getting fed up of big curly hair.I want that smooth Naomi Campbell look. As a teen growing up in UK .I got the stereotype comments ,you look like Naomi Campbell.

Just because we were both black tall and slim. I didn’t even wear a long straight weave .I actually just had long box braids. Plus I don’t think we look a like,I think shes actually darker then me and my nose is longer .And my nose is straighter and its sticks out when you look at me from the side.Plus my nose is wider and Naomi has a cute button nose.Naomi also wears coloured contacts sometimes , I don’t .Shes still beautiful but we don’t look alike.But you know folks are blind.
