    Maui Moisture

    Hi, Hey, Hello! And we’re out of the letters, which means normal (whatever the hell that means to me anymore) service will be resumed. I’m starting the month with a little bit of a beauty chat for the next few days. Then there will be some writing updates (because what up NaNo Month). And then because it’s been a hot minute the book reviews will be coming thick and fast. For now though let me swing back into this post. Which is hair based. I had to emergency buy some new styling products because I couldn’t find the Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie and my Only Curls styling creme kept…

    Only Curls

    Hi, Hey, Hello! It has been a while since I did a post about my hair and so here we are. I got new toys to play with in mid-April and I moved away from my trusty hair products for the first time in well over a year. Which was kind of a risky thing to do because when I started to try these products it was because I had run out of my beloved Shea Moisture duo and so if I hated them or they did shitty things to my hair I had to live by that until they run out. The good news is that they didn’t do…

    One Year

    Hi, Hey, Hello! Over the past year I’ve spoken about my hair quite a bit because I decided to start giving a shit about it and my first haircut in 4/5 years at the beginning of March last year. And well we’re coming up to a year since then and my hair continues to make me feel some kind of way and that kind of way is now going to make it’s way into a post. Firstly, it currently needs another trim so the ends of it are just being problematic because they are super broken and damaged and are kind of doing occasionally dodgy things to my hair. Look…

    Final 2017 Check In

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So 2017 has well and truly come to a close even though it’s only been 3 days since the clock ticked over to midnight signalling a new year, but as such I am due a final check in from my 2017 ‘Intentions’. As I mentioned in Checkpoint 5 this one will just be a quick summary of the year as I went quite in depth in that one. Without further ado, let’s wrap last year up: 1) Take Better Care of My Hair – This has moved along fine. I am getting another hair cut at some point this month because you gotta cut it to get that length. I’m…

    Checkpoint 5

    Hi, Hey, Hello! This check in is late I think… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I honestly cannot figure out the timings of it. I’m pretty sure it’s late. It should have happened last month but November was otherwise engaged and so it has to open December, which is gonna be festive-ish I guess. I’m not a big Christmas person until it gets to about the 20th and then I’m over it come the 27th. That’s it, you kinda get festive me for about a week, but during that week I go hard. Like, I wear a Christmas jumper every day and always buy a new one to…
