A Winter of Hair Love and Female Bonding

As a product junkie, i should be banned from all natural hair shows and someone let me into Motel Studios where Antidote Street, one of the UK's premiere online shopping sites for natural hair, held a hair event with the extra mod cons of a trichologist from Fulham Scalp and  Hair Clinic,  a hair stylist and as sought after hair care brands such as Curly by Nature, Design Essentials, Hug My Hair, Frizz Free Hair and Miss Jessie's



Prescribed and curated hair and scalp care products were also available at the Fulham Hair and Scalp stall and I will need to pick a few when I go in for my full consultation. Tickets were going for normal entry and a consultant session either with a Stylist or Trichologist. My trichologist session proved what i had been nasty about all Autumn, there's a lot of scaling around my hairline and my seborrheic dermatitis has flared up. Stress and diet could be a factor but now I know what the problems and I can deal with it, instead of rubbing my scalp raw.



The next event was the I Define Me Tour Queen's Tea Party, hosted by the queen and personification of Black Girl Magic Rachy of UK Afrolista. It was a gorgeous meet up of beauty, lots and lots of natural hair and brains discussing topics such as the effects of being a natural haired beauty at work, how it affects or affected relationships amongst other cultural issues surrounding black womanhood. It is an event I will go to again and again








The year 2016 started in one of my favourite places with one of my favourite people, Pelumi of Care for Your Hair UK. Mama has a gorgeous mane and hosted another one of her brunches which I raved about from last summer. We had lovely lifestyle coaches and nutritionist give us a great and informative start to the year and the goody bags were heavy and well thought out...just the way I like it.




At a time, where a pair of comfy socks and binge watching How to Get Away with murder is in vogue, it is nice to go out and have a conversation about life and all the crazy thats going on in your head. You may learn about the wheel of life or why night shades foods aren't so awesome. A nutritionist may confirm, that mashed avocado on toast, with smoked salmon and sliced eggs isn't as healthy together as you thought.

Go out there but wrap up warm.

Until later,
Love,

Weekend Cool Blues | OOTD

It has been a chilled weekend and on a trip to London from my village,  I wrapped up warm as the winds are howling like crazy. It has been a cold few days so I layered up my favourite pieces from Next and H&M and my turban from ASOS.





On my ganster :)



How was your weekend? What have you been up to? Did you go shopping the sales?

Until later,
Love,

New Year's Eve Chilled Outfit | OOTD

And so it begins, after 3 years of blogging, I put my shoe forward and inhale the world of fashion blogging. I always shop in anticipation of a few fashion posts but season after season, I talk myself out of it.

But here we are, with a date night outfit. This lovely emerald green strappy top from Joy and this shimmering black number from Next from ages ago. Shoes are Next too and just a little Ruby Woo and we're off to usher in the highly anticipated 2016. I have never been as scared and sure to start a new year. Hope you are as giddy with excitement to scream....Happy New Year!!!







What are your plans? Anything fun or life changing? Do tell and stay tuned for more of me playing dress up and travelling this year! It is going to be epic!


Until later,
Love,
Vesta
