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. 💁🏾‍♀️

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 😂. (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

Introducing: My First Thrifted Transformation Project

Hello and welcome to my blog. So as you may know I recently decided to be more of content creator or creative and have picked up sewing. This is something I wanted to learn for sometime however due unforseen circumstances they got brushed off. In addition to my multiple sewing projects I have an outfit I am transforming. I have had the outfit for some time now and the idea was that with time I will grow into it but that never happened. Due to this, now is the time to transform it to my size and wear it. When this was getting made in Ghana, I didn't send my measurement and I assume my grandad thought I had put on weight. The dress was almost twice my size when I got it first. The initial style was halter neck however I have completely change the style to an off shoulder-like dress. See pic below.  The questions is to whether have this as a skirt and top or a dress. A dress will be easier in themes of having the supplies I need whereas a top and skirt are the easi

Beauty From Within - Hydrolysed Collagen

Hello and welcome to my blog. This beauty within post is a product review of Holland and Barrett hydrolysed collagen with vitamin C. Hydrolysed Collagen as we may or may not know is a building block of the skin and is very popular in skin care products such as lotions and serums. Together with vitamin C when taken helps to maintain the skins elasticity thereby giving you a youthful look. I have taken this some years back but have not recently because it is costly. A bottle cost £32.99 however Holland and Barrett were doing an offer for £10.00 each I believe so I bought two to take again. The size of the tablets are better now compared to before. The instruction states to take three tablets twice a day which is a bit much 😁. I will report back with any visible changes to the texture of my skin. I got to choose two sample skin lotion as well. I chose aloe Vera and snail.  Make sure you subscribe to get a notification regarding my next post. Iryn
