#LUXSHEWHODARES Part 2

What is it about a fragrance that makes woman feel so good, what is it about a fragrance that makes woman feel bold, daring and confident. I believe it lies in the essence that she can be absolutely whoever she wants to BE. We live in an era where woman are the leaders, they are visionaries, they are the CEO of big corporations. 
We live in a day and age where woman are the pioneers and are taking their rightful place in society. We live in this day where woman can dictate the life she chooses for herself and not that which society has prescribed her to live. She has freedom to express herself without hindrance, boundaries and limitations. She can choose to be a mother, a business woman, and even a philanthropists. 

That is the power of a fragrance, like in the words of Coco Chanel "a woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future" & Christain Dior which said  "A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting".

Why is it that the perfect fragrance is of such importance? It is because the fragrance brings out that which is already locked up within a woman & that is exactly what a LUX is..... it's so much more than an average scent, bathing in it makes a woman feel beautiful and when she feels beautiful she acts differently. She is radiant, alluring, confident, captivating, fabulously feminine and 
unforgettable in every crowd.

Let me know how you feel when you wearing your signature fragrance?

How to style curly hair?

If you follow me on social media and read my blog often enough, you would have seen that since last year October I have transitioned into wearing my hair's natural strand more often. I have never really liked my natural curl/frizz. But on this particular day I was running late for my Brand Management exam and had no time to blow dry my hair. So I left the house with no make up and partially damp hair. I finished my exam and when I had a chance to look at myself in the mirror, I kind of had a Ah-ha moment! 
My curls was rather jazzy...
So from that day forth I decided that i'm going to try and wear my hair natural for as long as I possibly could and lay off dryer and the ghd straighter for a while. Ever since I started wearing my hair curly I've been receiving quite a few questions. 
How long does it take to curl your hair? What products do you use? How do you style your hair? So ever since that first daunting exam day, I've managed to get some tips and tricks that has worked for me.

1. I try and not wash my hair more than twice a week my hair's natural oil makes my curls look so much better. Also my hair tends to tangle easily, so I make sure to use a proper de-tangling brush. 
The Tangle Teezer is a great way to start, I purchased mine while I was on London, but just heard that they are selling it at Clicks now too.
2. I use a conditioning treatment religiously once a week. 
3. Make sure your conditioner is rinsed off properly.I find that when I neglect to thoroughly rinse my conditioner off my curls tends to fall flat on my head and the curls does not have that light bouncy feel. Trust me it makes a difference.
4. Use a soft t-shirt to dry your hair. Before I used a towel, I use to wrap the towel around my head and twist. This is thus really bad for your hair and could cause breakage and aggravate your strains to snap... ouch. Be gentle.
5. I prefer drying my hair naturally as I find the curl looks way better. But if you must dry a diffuser is a great second option.
6. To finish off I apply Aunt Jackie's Curl la la custard. I live by this product as it has so many benefits. Which is key for us curly haired girls. 
(There's an awesome range of Aunt Jackie's available make sure you check it out at Clicks)
Also the below product I purchased at Primark in London and I absolutely love this product, it acts as I great styling product!

Change X Growth

Have you ever been in a space where life as you know it is about to change?
Change is never easy, and the fear of the unknown can become quite overwhelming! But among-st the uncertainty and the shifting that's about to take place, it's important to know that you are stronger than you think and braver than you have ever been. Sometimes that leap of faith is like a little seed waiting to blossom and grow!
So by now you thinking, what the heck is she on about! What is changing...
the answer is everything!
The one reason why people resist to change is because they focus on what they have to give up instead of what they have to gain - Rick Godwin
The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old. But on building the new -Socrates

You attract what you are, not what you want. If you want to be great, then be great!
Exciting things coming to the blog...
