This week’s looks: Post wedding style

After falling in the shower on Monday (I know, I’m far too young to be doing that), I didn’t go to work that day, nor was I prepared to get cleaned up for any photos. And on Tuesday, I still wasn’t feeling so hot and neither was my poor bum which took the brunt of the fall…ouchies. But on Wednesday, I got interested in my appearance again and so took these pics…


I’ve been quite tired these past few days after work, with being on cooking duty this week so I haven’t been doing my usual braids in the eve as religiously as I should. So when I didn’t braids, I managed to tie the loose hair with an elastic hair band, pinned it to secure, and wrapped as usual.

On Thursday aka last day of the week 😀 :


On Friday I enjoyed a day of rest. From work, from my hair, from everything else…except The Good Wife.

On Saturday, the weather turned for the worse and it stormed in the morning. I was a bit grumpy and had wanted to rock my hair in its full glory, but it being quite damp affected my hair and made it shrink a bit 🙁 Ah well, I managed to fix it up as best I could in the car on my way to help Zuli bridal gown shopping. And for the first time, I experienced what some other naturals have said before when they see a fellow natural walking around somewhere and even though it’s not verbally expressed, a sort of moment of kinship happens. That happened to me that day when I went into the Cupcake Boutique (gorgeous lil’ cupcakes that’ll make your day – Lonehill Mall) and was pleasantly assisted by one of the shop assistants, a fellow natural. Her hair could’ve been about the same length as mine, not too sure but it was in a high puff. Looked cute. Anywho, me:


On Sunday morning I saw that my hair was proper dry. Even though I had been spritzing, I think not braiding it took a toll on my hair and I had no choice but to quickly fix a sort-of-hawk before we headed out to the Exclusive Books sale. I knew I was going to wash it later that avie so I just pinned up the back and pulled up the front.

Messing around lol

Ah, thank God it’s a long weekend 😀

      @Pretty, I'm so excited about your comment…I actually have a reader from Jozi!! Too cool 😀 For the spritz, the only ingredient I use that you can't find here is the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner, but you can always replace that with the conditioner of your choice. The rest is super easy to find and inexpensive. I buy my veggie glycerin from Pick n Pay for about R6! You've inspired me to do a post on where I buy my products so you can find them easier. I'll get on that in the next couple of weeks 😉
