Hairspiration: Thandie Newton for New African Woman Magazine

I spotted the ultimate natural hair inspiration this week from Thandie Newton in her New African Woman magazine shoot.

Thandie transitioned to natural a few years ago and has spoken openly a few times about her decision to do this, as well as how she deals with her daughter's hair. You can read one of her fab interviews on here. For this shoot she was given a range of different natural hairstyles and there's no denying that she looks stunning - Yaasasss girl!

Graduation and Jamaica!

So I realise that I haven't blogged in a while, but last month I got pretty caught up completing an internship, celebrating my graduation and exploring Jamaica. Yes, July was a pretty good month for me! (I have no excuse for August).

Anyway, seeing as I've abandoned my blog for a while, I thought the least that I could do is share a bit about what I got up to.

Graduation 

Four years hard work all paid off and I finally graduation from DMU with a first class degree! Final year really was a struggle but once I set my mind to something, there's no other option but to do it; so I pulled it together and got on with it. 

Graduation was a great way to finish off university, but I have to admit I think I was expecting something a bit more spectacular since I did work my ass off to get there! Anyway, I made it across the stage without falling on my face and I got to take my mandatory graduation photo - what more could I want?

The biggest thing I learned throughout university? Stop worrying so much and just trust in God.

Philippians 4:6 (NKJV): "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus"
