Believe it or not, I actually grew up trying my hardest to be a tomboy. When I was a young I was obsessed with Avril Lavigne and wanted to dress like her and be like her through any means possible. I would go to school and colour my nails in black with felt tip pens, I would try and act as boy-ish and possible and I would proclaim to everyone that I was a tomboy. Of course, this was when I was very young. Over time I grew and my style evolved a ton, and is still evolving every day. Some of you may know that recently, I worked with JORD on a piece centred all around the items I am happy to put a bit more dollar towards – the items I see as investment pieces. Well, the JORD team were so kind as to send through another watch (and sponsor another giveaway – which you can find all the details to enter at the end of this post!) When shooting this with my lovely photographer, she said that she never would have pictured me in a wooden watch, and you know what? A year ago I wouldn’t have pictured it either. It kind of got me thinking about my style evolution over time…

Win 2x Tickets to the U.K.’s BIGGEST Hair Expo!

My hair has gone through multiple changes over the years. When I was very young my mum would have me out and about with the standard young-black-girl mickey mouse hair puffs (the same hairstyle I’ll one day give to my daughters!) When I got a little bit older my mum would then braid my hair herself every two weeks – can we not all remember the pain when growing up of your mum doing your hair? (for me – that brush through the afro brought so much painnnn). I starting getting my hair professionally done when I was around 8-10 years old; the first time I visited the hairdressers’ was for my First Holy Communion and as per, I got braids done.
