life update.


Well I guess it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I haven’t got any particularly long explanation except for one word.

University.

There we go, explanation done and now onto the important stuff.

But no seriously, I didn’t expect to be so consumed with work that I wouldn't post anything in THREE MONTHS.

Luckily I had an epiphany and realised that if I wanted to be taken seriously as a content creator, then my youtube videos and blog posts can't be lacking, so here I am.


Instead of focusing my spare time on blogging and making videos over the past few months, I've been occupying myself with a couple photoshoots - the outcome of the flowery/cinema one above can be seen on my instagram (and should be on my website soon) and the other one is already on the editorial section of my site if you want to see other photos. I've also spent a lot of time going to exhibitions and exploring new places in London in which each come with a very different experience that I wish I had vlogged, but I guess there'll always be a next time for that.


Hmm what else is new?

Well if you don’t follow me on instagram, you’ll be surprised to know that I’ve now cut my hair.

My afro has gotten more and more damaged over the last few years so my mother and I decided to cut it.

Week one consisted of hiding beneath my leavers hoodie.

Week two consisted of tailoring my outfits to fit with my woollen hat covering up my hair.

Week three consisted of the occasional hat on long days out but free when on a quick trip to the shop.

Week four consisted of me finally being used to my hair but still feeling odd without the excess hair.

and now week five where I've accepted my hair now however I still don't love it but I don't hate it either?

If I was to estimate, I think I’ve had braids in, a good 95% of the almost 19 years that I’ve been alive which is crazy to even think about.

So I do miss my braids like a hell of a lot. Especially my grey ombre braids? Wow what a look.

Anyway moving on, I’m struggling with what to post about at the moment.

I don’t really fit into a category/ niche so trying to think outside of the box on a regular basis is not an easy task for me.


I’ve been blogging for a while now but since I’ve been so caught up with life lately, it’s taken a seat back and I’ve somehow gotten used to a life without having to post regularly.

So I’m just trying to figure out my next steps and ideas, but I should be posting properly soon.

(And I’ll make sure that you’re not waiting three months this time)
