Big Hair, Don't Care & 7,000 views!


Since I can remember, I've always stuck to braids because I don't like change, unless the change is that Zac Efron proposes to me then that's change I love.
Once I've found a good thing, I just stick to it. However, a friend inspired me to do a style similar to hers but mine ended up quite different to hers but I still like it!

The hair is called Aftress Hair Water Bulk and it was £3.49, I used 4 packs of it which is what gives it so much volume.

It took about 7/8 hours to do this hair (my bum was hurting like no man's business) but it gave me a chance to catch up on Nigerian films and soap that  love. The lady who did my hair was really nice and patient with me and gave me some scrumptious Ghanaian food :) 

When the hair was done, it was mahoosive. It was soo big and I had to avoid my dad for the first week at least because he's more of a gentle and simple man which is everything my hair isn't.

I have been sleeping with a scarf on my head (not my foot? haha) so it's gone down but the curls are still there, alive and well! 

Although I will probably not be doing the exact same hair next as I'm trying to do a range of different hairstyles rather than sticking to the same one, I still absolutely love this hair and I think it suits my face quite well if I do say so myself!
I've never received so many compliments about my hair so this has encouraged me to try out new hairstyles :)

So now I'm going to bombard you with pictures I've taken of me because my inner poser comes out once the camera comes on ;) 

Also, about 2 weeks ago, I had over 7,000 views! I'm soo grateful to everyone who reads my blog and I appreciate each and every view!

Thanks for reading!

Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express Mascara Flared

Hellllooo guyss!
I am back with another review about this Maybelline mascara. 
I love love taking the pictures for my blog, don't they look fantabulous?

Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express Mascara (what a mouthful!) is £7.99. It is  designed to lift and separate the lashes to give a flared effect. 

On a whole,  I do like this mascara. It lengthens my lashes and gives them volume which is great however it drys very quickly so I find that when I'm applying it I have to be quick else my lashes become hard making it harder to add any more product onto it. 

  I like the colour (pinky purple) and the wings on the packaging.

I read mixed reviews about this before buying it and found that some people preferred the original one to this one which is the 'flared' one. I have not tried the original one so I would not be 
able to compare the two. 

I don't love the smell as it is quite strong but it doesn't matter as once it is on the eye, you can't smell it at all. I also haven't had any problem with it flaking and getting on my contact lenses which is great!

I would probably buy this mascara again however I do feel that I could find another formula which is better for my lashes.  So far, this is my favourite mascara!
Over on my Youtube channel, I have uploaded a couple of new videos. I put up a vlog of My easter weekend away! and my March favourites :)

Tumblr Thoughts #4

Heeeeeeeeey :)
I'm back again with some pictures from tumblr. A picture can say so much so I don't feel the need to write about each one. These pictures do tell a vague story about me. I reblog things that are cute, funny or evoke a certain feeling within me. Enjoy!
