    Styled by Demoire: How I wore my ponytail hairstyle for a month?

    As an African lady who is proud of the curly nature that comes with black hair, I avoid ponytail hairstyle. This hairstyle normally do not last for more than two weeks. (Most stylist pre-inform you so you know that you can’t wear it for so long- more like a disclaimer that comes with the hairstyle.).

She needed a model for hair and gets to keep it. (Who am I to pass off such offer) . Also her work…

    My Day-cation at Eleko Beach: Fun things to do at Lil Zanzibar cottage.

    A trip to the beach is an opportunity to show your beach body. Knowing full well that it takes a lot of self discipline to achieve a breath taking beach body.
