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 excited to showcase all my works on here so stay tuned!

Until next time, enjoy life through exploring other opportunities.

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. 


To be able to do this I watched a few videos from peakmill, estelive and Ashley Bedeck on YouTube. I made what I…

I Made My First Wig With 2 Bundles & Closure| Aliexpress Hair | CGG

Hello and welcome to my blog. In this post I will continue on with my previous post about my recent purchase from Aliexpress.


If you are wondering whether two bundles and a closure is enough then my answer is yes. When I was done with the wig I didn't have the bleach and developer to bleach the knots. So I parted the hair properly and used concealer. Please picture below.


I have now bleached the knots and so the parting looks some what natural. After bleaching the knots I used the remainder of the bleach on the hair just to see how th hair will turn out. Let me know if you have used two bundles and a closure before.


Let me just say that I am not a professional so these may not look as good as those you see on YouTube however my aim was to make something I can wear everyday. I personally do not have the time to be gelling my baby hairs and the lot. I am more of slap it on snatch it off girl no time for baby hair business πŸ˜„.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have attem…

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.


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 so my scuba project has been delayed and I'm not sure i…
