How to do the Marley hair bun

To make a bun, you will need a hair ruffle, a weave and a bobby pin.
Its really easy, first wrap the weave around the hair ruffle and pin it to make it firm and you have your hair bun

My Marley Updo

For this look, you'll be needing the following:
1. Bobby pins
2. Kinky braids.
3. Olive oil or any hair oil.
4. Leave-in Conditioner
5. Hair ruffle.

First I rubbed my hair oil and leave-in, then I combed my hair out and divided into 2 parts.Then i pack one side and clip the upper part to prevent it from disturbing me.

Next i create a bun by wraping a bit of my marley hair around a hair ruffle,afterwards,i attach it to my hair n pin it. Bobby pins are very important in creating this look.

Afterwards I took the marley hair and wove It like you can see in the picture above and i made a hump, next i added more marley weave to the tip to make it long enough to go round my hair.
I wrapped my hair around It instead of weaving like i did on the left side, this pattern is for those who cant weave by themselves.You take your hair right over the weave and pin it till it goes round completely and then you tuck the extra weave on any of the sides.

Recycled Jeans

I got a couple of jeans I was going to dump,and I am thinking why throw them away when I can create something out of it,so I decided to recycle them and take a look at what I came up with.

I cut this one and made it into a turn up,and that's me rocking it.
This one I decided to cut and put in pieces of our african fabric,I even tried to make out a love shape at the back.I really like this one though and I will post a picture whenever I go out with it.

    This is my best edited shorts,I cut the real pockets out and replaced it with ankara and let the pockets pop out.I also made a matching bangle to complete the look.

 So get busy with those jean or pant trousers you want to dump because they can be recycled into a fashion statement.Watch out for my next post I will be showing you pictures of ankara accessories made by me.Cheers!!!

The Kitchen And The Body

Sugar,eggs,strawberries,pineapples,honey and the matchbook,these items are not just for consumption and striking the match stick they got awesome abilities too,check this out.
Put half a teaspoon of sugar and a small amount of water on a toothbrush and scrub your lips,trust me that gives you Soft,Smooth and Kissable lips.

Break two eggs in a bowl,spread on
your face and allow to dry,rinse off and you have an instant face-lift.

Broken nail,cant find your nail file,use the strike strip on your matchbook that should do the trick.
Natural honey dislodges impurities and unclogs pores,so wake up on a saturday morning and slather on your face.
Strawberries and pineapples help lighten stains caused by dark foods and red wine.
