Hi luvs,

Been pretty busy lately and haven’t been able to post here for a while, missed y’all a lot :) But I hope that will change pretty soon :) Thought I’d share a simple casual outfit I wore recently. Very comfortable for running errands over the weekend and lounging at home. It’s still cold here, so I  had to add some tights and of course a sweater and a heavy coat when going outside.

Outfit: Plaid Shirt – The New Yorker : Similar (here, here, & here), White Tank Top – H&M : Similar (here, here & here), Faux leather Skirt – The New Yorker : Similar (here, here & here), Oxford Pumps – Din Sko Old : Similar (here, here &  here), Tote Bag – Asos : Similar (here & here), Accessories – ASOS & H&M (here, here)

 

 

Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,

Much Love & Blessings,

Natural Hair | How I keep my 4c TWA moisturized

JBCO TWA Moisturize

Hi luvs,

I know it’s technically spring in most parts of the world but here in Stockholm, Sweden we unexpectedly got some snow yesterday morning so….we’re technically still in “winter” season lol. When it comes to my hair, this means sticking with a regimen that will keep my hair moisturized during this dry, cold weather.

In my 6 months post big chop update I mentioned that I will continue to incorporate Castor Oil into my regimen as a way to grow my hairline. Not only have I experienced a lot of growth with this regimen, I have also experienced a general improvement to the thickness, moisture retention and health of my hair.

These are the steps that I have been using as part of my regimen:

Every night before bed or rather most nights that I don’t feel lazy, I would wet my hair with water either in the shower or with a spritz bottle because water is the best moisturizer. I would then apply a generous amount of JBCO into my hair making sure all the strands are fully saturated. I then place a plastic bag on my head and tie it down with a satin scarf and head to bed. The next morning I would wake up to super soft moisturized tangle free hair. I would then proceed with the rest of my hair regimen.

I also do this during the day when I’m home and I feel like my hair is dry and needs a little TLC. If you plan on doing this you can use any oil of your choice or even a blend of oils. I always make sure to do this the night before wash day and it really helps for a better detangling session.

My hair has grown a lot these past 3 months and even though I’m loving the growth, I’ve also noticed that now it is more susceptible to tangles and knots. What I ‘ve found is that when hair is dry it tends to stick to each other and cause knots and tangles that we all love to hate. This method keeps the hair moist which in turn prevents the hair from tangling on itself.

UPDATE: I no longer use this regimen as of APRIL 2014 I do the maximum hydration method regimen.

Thanx so much for stopping by ♥,

Much Love & Blessings,

XOXO

#deestyles |The Pencil Skirt

Hi luvs,

I’ve got a bad case of the blues… it’s actually not what you think. (lol I just couldn’t resist using that phrase as an opening statement for this post) I’ve been really attracted to cobalt blue lately…and what’ s not to love about this gorgeous, rich shade of blue. It’s a perfect transitioning color from winter to spring and from summer right through ’till winter again. I just think it’s one of those shades that can be worn at any time of the year. And of course bonus points for the fact that it matches perfectly when combined with my all time favorite color, fuschia.

In today’s outfit I styled one of my absolute favorite wardrobe essentials. It comes only second to my beloved blazer… The pencil skirt. I love it because of it’s versatility. It can be worn with a blazer and dress shirt to work and you can make it edgy with a graphic tee and a leather jacket. It’s ladylike and happens to work well on most figures.

One thing to remember about pencil skirts, especially if you’re planning to wear it to work is you don’t have to stick to the traditional black pencil skirt. They come in just so many colors, textures and patterns. There are just so many options, so don’t be afraid to experiment, infuse some of your personality and refresh your work outfit.

Outfit: Top H&M Similar (here, here & here ), Cobalt Blue Pencil Skirt ASOS here (Other options here, here & here), Pink clutch ASOS here (Others I love: here, here & here), Ankle Boots ASOS here (Also here)
