*in my rapping voice*
It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you... Without a few posts to go through... :)
Honestly, the past few weeks have been dreadful. I was super busy at work (since I'm not a full time blogger and I have bills to pay), I had a cold and flu that I couldn't seem to shake, and now, just as I was getting better, my cold decided to come back. But of course, I did not want to stay away forever! I have missed all of this! A positive development through all of this is something totally random but something I'm so excited about: if you have been paying attention, I've been trying to grow my hair out since around September last year. I have been completely dependant on my flat iron for over a decade and I landed in this vicious cycle where I wanted to have my natural curls back, but couldn't since my curl pattern was so sloppy and all over the place that I decided to straighten it again. This time I decided I was so done with all the heat damage and I have not straightened my hair for over 3 months. Even though my hair is no way near where it eventually needs to be, I already like the direction it's heading towards, as much has improved. And if you follow me on Instagram stories or Snapchat, you may have seen that last week, I took the step of getting my first ever Deva cut. It did mean I had to give up some of my length but it was dead and damaged hair anyways. Instantly after the cut my curls were already taking more shape and I can't wait to see what it will look like in 6 months time. Luckily my blog is also some sort of diary I can use to look back what it used to look like in order to track my progress. The only regret I have right now is not taking this step years ago. Well, can't make up for lost times I guess. To the ladies that are considering the same thing, DO IT! Don't wait!
Now, although I was writing about my hair, I haven't forgotten that this is a fashion blog first, so naturally, I'm throwing in an outfit as well ;)
