New Look – TWA

After several months of stretching I decided to take the plunge and go natural. Yes I said go natural. If you remember my Long Stretch post, it was something that crossed my mind but I was nowhere near ready to make that decision at the time of writing that post.

Q&A: Where to Purchase Replacement Bonnets

On The Move

For the next couple of weeks I will be moving.  Amidst all the packing, cleaning and coordinating of everything else for the move and the unpacking etc at the new place I will not be in a position to update the site as regularly as I normally do for the next few weeks. I will however be back in December to continue my Bridal Hair Series, give you updates on my hair situation and of course post some product reviews 🙂 Until then, take...
