I Made My First Wig With Lace Closure


Hello and welcome to my blog. In this post I will be writing about some of the things I have been up to, particularly things to do with hair.

I had this routine where I braided my hair and kept it for about a maximum of 3 months, took it down, treated my scalp and then follow the cycle again.

To be honest I was a bit tired of this process as it took a little over 10 hours to braid the hair and the thought of taking it down was a bit daunting too.

The initial plan was to have a friend construct a wig for me however because she lives a bit too far from me I gather this courage and awoke the wild side of me to fantasize about the idea of making my own wig.

And I did 😁. I purchased the equipment from aliexpress.com together with two set of hair: 
1) Two 14 inches bundles and a 12inches  closure;
2) Three 10 inches bundles and 8 inches closure. I bought both of these from aliexpress. 

In the process or making the 14 inch wig

To be able to do this I watched a few videos from peakmill, estelive and Ashley Bedeck on YouTube. I made what I will call a wearable wig. πŸ’πŸΎ‍♀️

The complete look

I didn't have a bleach or developer to bleach the knots however I am happy with how it looks now with further plucking and applying some concealer. I have invested in a bleach and developer to do a few experiments. In my future post I will show pictures and videos of what I have been ranting about. 

Until next time, try a different look.

Thrifted Transformation Project: Process

Hello and welcome. It has been a while since I made a post. I promise to keep the post coming. In this post I am introducing you to an outfit I put together. The top part of the outfit is made with Kente cloth which is a traditional Ghanaian print. This was a piece of cloth that came with a dress my grandad made for me a few years back. I am having to thrift that dress and will reveal it soon. The design and material I had in mind I watched YouTube to replicate a pattern however after putting it together I didn't like it as I felt it was too revealing and was thinking of throwing it away or taking it apart and using it for something else until I had an epiphany πŸ˜‚. (I've been wanting to use this word for some time now so here goes). I wanted to wear it as a top with various skirts.  I also had a few scuba fabrics I bought from ebay I wanted to make some skirt out of it to wear with the top. I bought lining for the scuba skirt however it didn't arrive s

Switching Up My Waredrope | Haul & Try On

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently embarked on a fashion haul. My aunty was visiting from Ghana and I accompanied her to do most of her shopping. While with her she pointed out that I need to look good for work as this is were I tend to spend most of my time. I hackened unto her to buy a few things to try and switch up my waredrope. Also I had put on a few pounds and it was time to buy new sizes as my old cloths didn't fit. My old cloths believe it or not are in sizes 4 and 6 however now I can fit in an 8 and I feel I look a lot better. I did a few shopping in Primark were I bought 3 dresses in size UK8 all of which were full price item. The mustard dress fits fine and I love the colour however the other 2 are very tight even though they are size 8. I have not worn them yet so maybe they will loosen up -  this is what happens when you can't be bothered to try stuff on before you buy them🀦🏾‍♀️. I also bought several trousers and tops from H&M,

What I Have Been Up To - Investing & Developing Now Skills

Hello and welcome. It's been a long time since I posted on here and a lot has changed. I have been a bit busy doing other things however I think I will be frequenting this blog going forward. One of my recent investment Now onto what I have been up to. A few months ago I invested in a sewing machine from amazon. I was happy to get a 0% interest and paid in installment. If you are in finance you know there's no such thing as 0% interest. Ha! I did manage to sew a dress and wore it for as a bridesmaid dress at a friend's wedding. The finishing was not good and I have learnt alot from that experience. The bridesmaid dress I made πŸ’πŸΏ‍♀️ I have now moved on to my second, third and forth project and will share it with you in due time. I have decided to pick this up due to the uncertainties within the corporate world. So let's wait and see what I can deliver going forward. Currently in the process or making this circle skirt dress I am very ex
