Meet My Little BFF: The Body Shop Facial Brush

Fits right in the palm of your hand!

On Christmas Eve I decided to purchase The Body Shop Facial Brush With Lid, knowing full well that Santa wasn't going to be leaving me a Clarisonic under the tree the following day! 

Two months later, I absolutely love this dinky sized brush!! The cute nylon brush is suitable for use with cleansers, facial washes and exfoliators. It has a round handle, which gives you maximum control and comes with a lid too, which allows for excess water to be drawn away from the bristles after use - keeping your brush hygienic!

Embracing My Natural Veil [Hair]

Me as a child with my natural hair; 4 years of age.

Today I thought i'd share with you a little [well kinda lil] bit about my  'natural hair' journey - third time on record.

On Saturday 10th October 2009, I sat in a Salon staring at the mirror contemplating what to do with my hair. I was in the process of trying to grow my hair out of a cropped Rihanna-esque hair style. But the condition of my hair of late was getting to me, I had that one problem area that just had a mind of its own #yeahthat. This one area had been growing fine and then *poof* disappeared like Delilah herself had come like a 'thief in the night' and done the honors of shaving it off! #mysamsonmoment dramatic, oui! o_O My hairdresser was as baffled as I was at why this had happened and suggested that perhaps it may have been caused by some sort of trauma [I had an op, mind you that was late 07 when that took place - trauma??] or medication that I was on at the time that may have contributed to this mysterious hair breakage, and *cough* dryyyyness.
