I didn't nail Crow pose, Crow pose nailed me along with some other moves too and whilst I was on the mat I could feel the child inside of me rearing its emotional, no-words-to-explain-this-feeling head and I began to feel stupid and weak. But...Read More
Effort and Grace. Not necessarily two words you would put together, but in yoga, this makes complete sense. I was on the mat like "why the hell wasn't I thinking about it like this in the first place?"Read More
I received so many compliments about my cornrows/canerows (both are correct in my book) recently that I just had to share my pictures and tell you more about how it went down (pain and all). How do you get a fun but adult take on the classic childhood style...?Read More
How did my hair go from my usual boasty 'fro, to the more demure girl next door, 70s chick? Well the gorgeous Freddie Harrel has just launched a new amazing Afro hair extension range.

Ouch! ooh - wee sh*t!
