#WBD: Getting the L’Oréal steampod treatment


Lately you guys have seen my rocking it straight on my instagram and here on the blog. You know what I’m talking about. About two and a half weeks ago I felt like changing up my hairdo for the last winter weeks, so I decided to trade in my natural curls for straight hair. Keeping my curls in place is a task that takes time and I didn’t feel like doing that these days. It was time for something easier that involves less time styling my hair. Straightening it.

A touch of African Queen on Kingsday


On Saturday April 26, as you can read in my previous post “Open Air Boutique on Kingsday”, it was the first Kingsday in the Netherlands. I also shared with you that I participated on the free market with my cousins by presenting our own Open Air Boutique.

With my natural curly hair it is always a bit of a task to get a proper hairdo, and I didn’t feel like taking on this task that day. Instead of spending half an hour getting my hair done, I choose to go African chic with one of the trending items of today, the headscarf.  Continue reading “A touch of African Queen on Kingsday”
