Spring Natural Hair Events.





Hi everyone. I haven’t been around for over a month, I was moving house proving that there is really more to my life than hair. We got our first home together and it took that long to paint and decorate it. When I think of couples decorating their first home I imagine them both in dungarees, her with a bit of paint on her cheek and him wiping it off. I see images of them both smiling and laughing…yeah (sighs)…well let me tell you it’s nothing like that! Decorating a house is bloody hard work and totally unromantic! I was stressed, tired and rushed off my feet, now I’m home very poorly with a cold surrounded by boxes lol!


The whole time my hair was in twists with a headtie on top! I have been dying to take them out, they were starting to look awful, when I did – last night my hair was longer and softer – I will have to take photos.

Anyway my inbox had over 500 emails because during the move BT cut our internet off early and I just didn’t have time to read everything on my phone. Most of the emails are telling me about all the events that are taking place. I missed the Natural Noire event last weekend as that was our moving weekend. I hope it went well.

Here are a few other things that are going on – let me know if I have missed any
