The Queen Elizabeth & her Hijab (Headscarf).

The worlds gone mad the Queen Elizabeth  Windsor was spotted wearing  a hijab e.g headscarf covering her hair and neck but no one notices and she didnt even make the daily news.She was left to go about her day.And she wasn’t accused of being a terrorist or converting to lslam. Even worse our Queen got a huge collection of Hijab headscarf check the internet for her collection .Its huge folks


But when your a Muslim women of the brown variety and wear a Hijab e.g Headscarf you can get threaten or accused of being a terrorist nowadays. Like terrorist only look a since way.

The racism and Islamophobia  is clear here and having White skin is a privileges that affords you alot of  comforts that having light brown to dark brown skin doesn’t. Just ask Nadiya from British Bake off about that.


One of the most annoying thing is that Islam didnt invent the Hijab ,it adopted the Hijab.This tradition predates ISLAM.Not that the bias racist right wing media in the west would mention it to its citizens.

Wearing a scarf has been apart of Western culture for a long time but the secular  Religion and the mainstream beauty industry want to throw this tradition a way for difference reasons.Lets see why below .Here’s Italian actress Sophia Loren wearing a Hijab style Headscarf.

The Mainstream Western beauty industry want to promote, less headscarf wearing to boost sales of  beauty products e.g hair dye. No point promoting hair dye to ladies wearing a scarf.Who would see the new hair colour?

Plus there’s also the hair shampoo and conditioners that also need to be flogged.So allowing Western women to wear the hijab e.g headscarf would effect sales and eat into profits. We can’t have that can we. Islamophobia is great for  boosting sales of hair products.And the million pound beauty industry and fashion industry  has invested  interests in promoting since things as fashionable and others as terribly not fashionable..

If you have any doubts, watch the next shampoo commercial and try to imagine a Hijab or Nijab women or nun advertising the latest shampoo products, that’s going to make your hair silky soft .IT JUST WOULDN’T WORK.

I found wearing a headscarf sometimes so liberating ,its a clear statement that a women isnt her hair.And it gives me a chance to not have to do my hair ,its a great protective hairstyle and it protective from the burning sun in summer time.

I will have to talk about the secular reason for promoting not wearing headscarf another time , this blogpost is getting too long

Just before I go, I just wanted to showcase some lovely Hijab headscarf fashion for folks who prefer not to fall for propaganda

Weight Loss and Health Eating

Its a official folks, I’ve loss 2 stone in weight via my new health eating plan and I’m super pride of myself.I’ve mainly just gone back to eating more West African food.And stop eating so much Western European food. The English food I was eating was fattening and its seem like Western European food seem to have meat with everything.Especially English food.

With English food if you take the meat out of it, it has no taste. Over the years I have put on 3 stone, just by eating mainly English and Western European Food.And I just didnt want to put on this extra weight.One of the reason I also put one weight,was due to changing jobs from stacking shelves in Asda, to working in a call centre all day. Plus as you age your metabolism slows down.

One day I woken up  and thought I have had enough of struggling with my weight and decided to go back to my roots and eat more of the West African food I grew up with.As I knew it has taste even without meat or fish and its low fat.I am also eating more Arab and West Asian food .As I grew up around the Curry mile in Manchester and I’m use to eating Samosas, Naan bread and Curry. Which is low fat and has taste without lots of meat or any meat in it.Meat is very fattening even Chicken and it takes a lot to burn it off as you age. If you want to see what I’m eating checkout my YouTube video on what I’m eating now .Please comment and share on social media

Blonde Box braids for summer

Hey folk I was fed up of crochet braids and big curly hair .And I decided to go blonde.I’ve always wanted to go blonde since TLC days but didnt have the courage but now I’m too old to care  what folks think .Plus I saw natural blonde hair  Africans in Nigeria and the Congo .And realise Blonde hair in Africa seem to be a recessive gene that pops up every once in a while. Without the white man or Asiatic man help. Its truthfully beautiful against dark brown skin. I going to dye it blonde soon but I thought I try it out without first.The braids took a week since I’m having chronic fibroid pain .But it was worth the wait.I just top up the edges every week or two.I’m not great at braiding my own hair but I’m cheaper then the hairdresser lol.Life of a broke mature student

Quick Review of Loreal Paris shade 132

I just love pink lipstick but can’t  find the shade I like and  I still find it hard to feel comfortable with my big lips. Unfortunately being a Coco Brown girl in a Vanilla world like Britain isn’t easy and my kind of beauty isn’t celebrated .But as I get old ,I’m learning to cast off the effects of racism aka White supremacy on my mind . I’m get comfortable with the term Black British.I’m learning that beauty comes in all shapes ,colours and sizes .And one type of beauty isnt better then another type its just different.So today I’m wearing Loreal Paris Magnolia Irreverent 132.Its a lovely bright Fuschia shade and I feel like Black Barbie.One love people. Please shade on Social Media
