I love you but…

I love myself even more.

So much so I can’t let you talk down on me.

Or look down on me.

I love you but

I love myself more.

So much so I decided to move away from you.

To stop talking to you.

To stop reaching out for you.

I love you but

I love myself more.

So I’m trying to build myself.

To take care of myself.

To better myself.

I love you yes I do.

But I love me more.

I love me more…

First impression- PS Curl Primark

Hello hello! How ya doin’?!

About a week and a half ago I found out about PS Curl from Primark and thought I would give it a go.

Friday was wash day so it was perfect timing. I have not washed my hair for 2 weeks so I was READY for a good and deep cleansing.

Not going to lie, I picked them up for the price and did not in fact check the ingredients.

After using all three products I can say that I “rate them” 👊🏿

Cleansing shampoo

Used twice for reason stated above. Left my hair feeling clean. In fact all the glue I had to hold my wig was gone. Running my fingers through my hair was really nice because as I said it was clean but not dry.

If I were to give them a mark out of 10, this would get a 6.5 or even 7!

Intensive conditioner

This was just okay in my opinion. It did not leave MY hair as smooth and soft as I wanted but could just be because of my hair texture. It smells nice and is a tiny bit slippery. Nothing to write home about.

I was to do a deep conditioning mask but it was almost midnight and I was falling asleep this Friday so I only went for the conditioner… as it was supposed to be intensive.

5/10

Curl defining cream

I don’t think I can have a real opinion on this one. From the get go I had planned to add it to other products like a leave in from ORS and some oils. I don’t think it made my hair any better or any worse.

My only feeling is that it was not created with people with my hair texture in mind but whatever. Again, quite a pleasant smell 🤗🤗

Again, 5/10.

aa you can see, as a trio they get a solid pass from me… as a first impression.

I will have a look at the ingredients but until then… remain blessed and get educated ✌🏿🤘🏿

#NewIn- Mini haul Primark

Good morning or is it already afternoon?!

How are you on this cold Monday 🥶?!

Bonjour! Comment ça va en ce lundi glacé?

Some times last week I walked into Primark using the excuse of buying tights. 25 mins and £10 later, I came out with the following items:

La semaine dernière je suis passé à Primark, sous prétexte de m’acheter de collants. 25 minutes et 10 livres plus tard, je suis ressortie avec les articles suivants:

I think at least 50% of my makeup brushes are from Primark. I’m no expert but I feel like they are for their prices. They were a pound each – from an original price of £3.

Un pinceau pour fond de teint et un autre pour la poudre à une livre chacun.

Okay these ones were ACTUAL surprise. I had see shampoos and conditioners before in Primark but I had never bought any from them. However, when I was walking past the shelves and saw the curly heads on these tubes I HAD TO stop.

Not going to lie, I did not read the list of ingredients so I don’t really know how suitable it is but I thought “whatever!” I got me a shampoo, a conditioner as well as a curl defining cream that I can’t wait to try! 🙌🏿

J’ai aussi acheté un shampooing , son après shampooing ainsi que sa crème définition pour boucles . C’est la première fois que je vois ces produits en magasin dont je me suis dit “voyons voir ce que ça vaut “

For 30p a set of 24 or 36 mails, I say BIG YESSS!

I have been using nails from Primark for a bit now and I have loved them. I got a mixed of “simple/ classic” ones and slightly fancied ones 🙌🏿🙌🏿

Je ne pouvais voulais pas dire non à des boîtes de 24/ 36 faux ongles à 30 pence. Désolée 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

Last ones are probably the most random ones here. Not the earrings because they are 100 percent cute. The face paint sticks on the other hand… I don’t know. I don’t think I have an answer for that. Again we are talking about 30p or 50p. Absolute bargain I would say!

Pour finir une paire de boucles d’oreilles et du face paint. J’ai pas vraiment besoin de face paint dans ma vie de tous les jours mais bon 🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

New hair, new me #IssaLace

Good morning handsome and beautiful ones!

I hope you are all well physically and mentally.

Look what I’ve got on: Issa lace front wig. Whoop whoop

Although it is not the first time I’m trying on wigs -including lace wigs, the one I am wearing was made for me by my friend and owner of D Rosse Hair.

Ce n’est pas vraiment la première fois que je porte une perruque mais celle si était fait pour moi… literally!

As I said on my Instagram, I had plans to join the wig life in 2019 but my friend’s wedding brought the date forward. 👰🏿 🎩

As I am typing this post right now, I have been rocking the hair for a week. I obviously had an incredible amount of questions and remarks from colleagues and pupils and I ignored most of them 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

Sur insta j’avais déjà dit que je voulais joindre la Wig Life en 2019 mais le mariage d’une de mes amis a accéléré les choses.

Au moment où je suis en train d’écrire cet article, ce fait une semaine que je vis avec. Une semaine pendant laquelle j’ai dû ignorer les questions et remarques des élèves et de mes collègues.

I’m slowly getting used to it and hope it will make a good difference in my hair growth. Any naturalistas rocking a wig as a protective style? Tell me about your experience in the comments.

Je m’y habitue doucement mais sûrement. J’espère que ça portera des fruits. Si toi aussi t’as les cheveux naturels et portes des perruques, parle moi de tout ça dans les commentaires.

And… I’m back!

Although I had not planned to leave and maybe you didn’t even notice it… I am very much back at it!

It’s been almost two months that I have not blogged. I wish I could say it was a hiatus in preparation of something big or new but it wasn’t and I guess that’s fine too.

Anyway… since I’ve been gone, I turned 27 *woop woop* 🙌🏿 and that’s pretty much it.

Up in here, I will be moving from 2 posts a week to one. I’m going for even better quality over quantity.

That is all for me. Remain empowered 👑

Happy new (academic) year!

Helloooooo! Happy new week and happy new month!

We have indeed gone through 2 thirds of the year 2018 although it feels like we were in January 2 days ago.

A friend of mine told me that teachers like me have 3 “beginnings” per year or 3 “new year”: the official New Year, our birthday and the new academic year. We discussed it as 3 opportunities to set new goals and to start all over again.

I’ve gone through New Year, my birthday for 2018 is yet to come but today is the start of the new academic year!! And since the end of August I have been thinking about things I needed to change, work on or improve and I ended up agreeing on one thing: health and fitness. I know it feels like 2 things but they are so close that it is hard if not wrong to disassociate them.

What’s with my heath and fitness?! Well I’m trying to gain weight and build slightly bigger muscles 💪🏿. For this, I’m trying to have a better control with what I eat in terms of consistency as well as portions.

My resolution for this “new year” therefore is to go full on #MealPrep.

I have been cooking my own food and bringing my packed lunch to work but sometimes I was slacking. This year I want to be and remain on top of things.

I plan on having fun with the tastes and colours. If you would like to see how I’m getting on and if you want practical ideas and tricks, follow me on Instagram (@highnessempowershighness). I’m only starting but I will do my best to post them regularly (especially on my stories and my highlights)

What about you, how are you marking this “new year”?!
