Fro Fever

I am pretty sure that it's just me who day dreams about having Afro like voluminous hair. I cut my hair a good few weeks ago to a long bob, lob, or whatever this spring's hair trend is called and I was looking for new ways to style it other than straightening it, like I always do. I came across these videos on YouTube on how to get an afro-ish look without heat, so I tried it. Needless to say, I was impatient, short of bobby pins and didn't do it the right way for all of my hair so I ended up looking crazy when I woke up the next day. It was exciting that it worked though! I probably will try it out again (eventually) since I suddenly have this desire to have the fro. I don't have a natural lengthy kinky hair texture though so here's hoping one day I can achieve a perfect rounded shape without looking deranged.

Here are some pictures that I feel fro'spired from:



Let's take some time out to appreciate Solange Knowles; no one can beat her fro style.








I found most these picture from +Pinterest!

I am probably more than a few years late for this hair trend but hopefully it makes a big comeback soon. Until then I will have to just imagine I am in the 60's/70's or any years after that, that showed resurgence of the fro.

Spring Shopping!

Easter is a time to eat chocolate and rebuild your closet for the warmer weather.. Soo I went shopping and got a few great pieces from +FOLKSTER  in Kilkenny! Since college, I've noticed that I go through my clothes a lot quicker and with Student Race Day next week I needed a new outfit... Or two..Etc.

I apologise for the poor quality of the photos, I was snapping them quickly because my camera was dying (the whereabouts of the charger is currently unknown) and I had to switch to my phone, eek. Plus the lighting in my room isn't great either. It would have been better if I had shown pictures of what they look like on but those will come soon enough!



This play suit is amazing on, especially with this double breasted white tuxedo blazer. I also got the belt and pearl powder heels to go with this outfit.






I can't wait to bring this blackless floral dress for a night out on the town this summer! (Or sooner).




I really love this skirt because of the sheer layering over the shorter skirt. It is really pretty on but unfortunately I haven't found the right items to match it besides the heels. The tux blazer looks better with the skirt and less ballerina-ish/ more classy.




It's hard to see how nice this metallic biker jacket is, but it too of course is really nice on. Perfect for the weather warming up to just throw on over a more plain outfit.


When I tried the metallic sheepskin jacket on, I fell in love! So even though the weather is getting warmer, I still hoping for a few chilly days from now until summer so sport my new jacket.

Next time, you will probably see the pictures of my race day outfit! I am forever apologising for my lack of blogging.. Who knew life would get so busy with these things called assignments, essays and also college? Bring on the summer I say!
