Aftress Bohemian Bulk hair review

I thought I would review my favourite brand of curly hair extension. Which I use for my crochet braids.I wear crochet braids because there easy to manage ,cheap to do and the only hairstyle I can do without anyone’s help.And there a great way of protecting my hair and reduce hair styling time.

The hair l am wearing in this picture is Aftress Bohemian bulk in colour 1.Its a lovely brand of hair soft and a beautiful size curl.And Aftress brand has more hair in the bag compare to Freetress and Glance model model.I usually buy three bags which cost me £4.99 each.I only use 2 bags and a half for the crochet style .And refresh it over the weeks as the hair gets flat with the left over hair.Its suppose to be curling iron safe but I havent use heat on it.I would recommend it the curls are smaller then water wave Freetress brand but its beautiful all the same.

Black Opal Nutmeg Foundation review

Hi folks as a girl on a budget.I have one rule I screw by .Which is not to buy any makeup item over ten pounds. When it comes to makeup foundation my choice is limited in a Vanilla world. But I found Black Opal years ago. It was £7 pounds then and I firstly brought the colour Beautiful Bronze and Hazelhut. But I then brought Nutmeg as Hazelhut was too orange for me.
I have super dry skin, so I always put on a lay of coconut or palm oil on my face before I put on foundation. And even then its dry within about three hours. ( Its a myth that all black women have oily skin).

I prefer liquid foundation as my skin is dry but I brought the stick foundation, this time as I worry about it spilling in my handbag. Its happened before folks.

Its a nice foundation,medium coverage ,cheap. But its just a bit too orange for my likely. Its better in Summer as I am darker then. I always buy two different colours, Nutmeg and Beautiful Bronze. As like Bobbi Brown the makeup artist says.Women of colour who are darker,tend not to have an even colour all over there face. Unless your like Sudanese dark. Those folk always seem to have beautiful dark chocolate skin and even too.

black opal nutmeg and beautiful bronze stick foundation

I aint that lucky, so two colour are always in my makeup case. I must say I have no idea why black women makeup foundation on the cheap end, always seem to be orange. I might be of the chocolate variety but my undertone is yellow not orange or red.Most makeup aim at white skin whether there European descent or Asian tends to have a pink or red based. And Western based makeup companies just mix a bit of brown in it to get the brown based.Saves the companies big buck having to cater for brown skin women.Its a cheap and shoddy way of catering for women of colour .But its quite common practice in the west.

My new equipment for YouTube videos.

I love YouTube but it takes well to much time ,to set up lights, camera , outfit and makeup .Especially when you can’t find anyone to help you film.Blogging so much easier.And there’s not much money in YouTube if you don’t have tons of subscribers and views.But it’s a fun hobby.I started a new fashion YouTube channel.Got a new camera Sony W830 and photography lights .And I am excited again.

I want too do a sewing video  and outfit video for my new channel so watch this space.

Fake nails by Bodycare

I am a firm believer in faking it until you make it beauty wise.I buy fake hair,fake lashes, fake nails etc.And one thing I love the look of is fake nails. Especially since there cheap and come in a ray of colours.

I came across a cheap packet from Bodycare for£1.50.There French Manicure with a bit of a baby pink tint too them and there lovely.

To put them on.I filed my nail bed down a bit to make my nail bed rough, so the glue has something to bond too.And I put them on a night so the glue has time to dry.I would personally say, try buying another set of glue.As the glue that comes in the package isn’t that great and one or two of the nails have popped off and I have lost them when I have been out and about.

There 24 in packet and there called Body Collection 24 Pink French pearl,there a bargain folks.They look super elegant and classy.

There’s also a lot cheaper then gel nails at the salon especially when your a job seeker like me.On a teeny weeny budget of £73.00 week to live on.

Just because your unemployed doesn’t meant you shouldn’t take care of yourself.

Manchester Blogging Scene

Is it just me or is there no blogging scene in Manchester.I joined Manchester Bloggers to meet people who were into blogging .I arrange to meet a girl for a photo shoot ,only to be stood up and the girl ignore my calls.It wouldn’t be so bad, if the girl wasn’t the ADMINISTRATOR OF THE GROUP.But its really annoying.No apologise plus there’s no meet ups for photo shoots.I have ask but don’t get a answer.

I don’t have many friends and it would be nice to meet people who like blogging .Also people who love fashion,food and cycling.BUT IT’S HOPELESSLY.Life only seems to happen if you live in LONDON.In the UK.

Its so strange as BOOHOO and MISSGUIDED some of the most popular high street fashion brands are based in MANCHESTER. But nothing seems to be happening blogging wise in relation to fashion.

The only group that seems like fun is BLACK BRITISH BLOGGERS.The group is very active and I enjoy being in the group.But its for the UK.And meet ups will probably be in London. EYE ROLL.

UK economy is so unbalanced LONDON is the engine and most things happened in London .And the rest of the UK gets left out.This is one of the reasons people voted Brexit ,as a lot of people especially up north are left out.

On of the most popular manchester blogger Intheflow hit it big and moved to London.And that’s the story most of the time.Not much happens up north.I ain’t planning on moving to London and I just hope Manchester changes some time soon.
