She Figured If She Didn't Move No One Would Notice Her... Underneath A Winter's Sky Her Eyes Were Bright, Tonight Would Be Her Night...

We have no internet at home atm so this is a super quick, low-quality post!!!!...

Thanks for the lovely comments regarding my realllllll hair, I will get back to y'all when I have tinternet back (sic intentional, my family visited today, feeling very Northern right now)...

This is the camera I bought thanks to the advice of the wonderful blogger Sade, didn't use it for the pics in this post but will be doing so in the near future so hopefully I can finally start to step this up a bit quality wise...

  • Jumper- Sam's
  • Shorts- H&M

What d'ya think of my new braids??? They're thin and many so it's a slightly different look, i'm feeling it atm, though I did only plait them the other day- took the entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy to do as well!!! Longggggggggggggggggggggg!!!!

And FYI, no, I don't like cats!!!!... I like Dawgssssssssss.... Sooooooooo...

Toodles to you BITCHES ;) xx

What Is REAL? What Is REAL Now? Am I Still? Am I Here Now? If I'm Still, Will I Feel Now??...

After braids questions the second most common thing people e-mail me about is my REAL hair, i'm not sure what's so interesting about it and i've posted pics with it before but i'm gonna quickly address the main questions in this post.

I took my braids out this week so that I could rest my hair and rebraid it. I pin it inwards for styling but you can get the general idea of what it's like from these pics Sam snapped the other day...

  • Shirt- H&M
  • Necklace- Forever 21
  • Jeans- Bershka
  • Shoes- Primark

  • As you can see my natural texture has grown out a fair bit but I still have relaxed bits haunting me for an inch or 2 at the ends.

  • I don't take a great deal of interest in hair type and categories etc but from what i've seen over the years on the internet and in magazines my hair is probably best described as a combination of  4a and 4b. It is combed out in the pics though so you can't see the curl pattern.

  • When straight the longest part of my hair is now over 6 inches long 

  • In terms of protecting hair when sleeping I have pretty much the same routine as when my hair is in braids- P.M. night time oil and a satin cap, only difference is I also plait my hair before putting the cap on to minimise knotting and breakage during the night.

For those of you who have asked questions i've addressed I hope this is helpful, if anyone else has anything to ask about my reallllll hair just leave it as a comment or e-mail me and I will add it to this post just below!!

Additional Q's

  • Both sides of my head are shaved and about an inch of the back

If you're more interested in braids questions this post addresses all that! Off to work now. Boooooo.

Toodles to you bitches xx
