I've been looking for a pair of flats that are a bit dressier than my current pair and these shoes from & Other Stories are my everything. As much as I love heels, my arches don't feel the same way all the time. And as much as I love this pair of flats, my wallet doesn't feel the same way at all so these are getting bookmarked till an unspecified date in the future when my budget comes back
With midterms in full swing, you might be checking for a backpack to store all your notes in. Or you might be completely over school period! Either way you can't go wrong with leather drawstring backpack, also from & Other Stories. This store finally came around online stateside as I'm sure you know from multiple blog sources, but I just had to spotlight them once they spotlighted Oroma Elewa (who is one of my all time favorites I love her work).
This R&B Hair Moisturizer is the latest addition to my arsenal of hair care products because I have zero qualms about splurging on cremes and conditioners. I'm liking this product so far because its almost like I'm paying for aromatherapy as well with the fantastic scents wafting up from the lid. What really made it worth my money though was it's ability to snap my curl pattern back to normal. On top of my hair being damaged from those heavy braids, it was also frizzing like crazy because Cambridge is actually a giant raincloud ready to storm at any moment. Reviews online caution against using too much (which is fine with me because this tiny tub was 25 dollars so best believe I'm going to make it stretch) but besides that it's really simple to use! I just put it on freshly conditioned and damp hair when I do my twists for the night and I'm set.
Speaking of hair, these portraits from The Coiffure Project have me experiencing a level of afrojealousy that I did not know I was capable of. I thought looking at pics from AfroPunk was enough, but they are nothing compared to these photographs. The lighting, the clear radiance of everyone's skin, the simplicity of the backdrops, and the hair. It all comes together to replenish my edges and restore my efforts in the daily battle against shrinkage, breakage, and other obstacles to my fro growth.
Hope everyone's having a good week!
