If you know me then you know I am not afraid of playing with my hair. I have gone from short to long and back to short again. From Kellis to Rihanna, Kate Holmes and Victoria Beckam hairstyles and my most recent hairstyle that I kept for a little over a month; the " Michelle Obama bangs" style. I did it all.
Having beautiful hair is an essential to every woman’s confidence. And it is okay to wear extensions, Yes! So when it comes to extensions, I think it is necessary to invest in great natural hair extenstions that would last you for a while. That's why I think Super Natural Hair, a UK based hair boutique is the best place for Natural Hair extentions. The boutique carries all type of hair extentions from Malaysian to Brazillian, Indian and Perevuian.
The quality of this hair is absolutely amazing, 100 % human and comes in different body wave styles. The good thing about it is you can do whatever with it; swim, walk in the rain and not worry about being ruined. You can curly it, color it, or even brush it over and over and it wont tangle or shade like other hair. You can pretty much do whatever you wish with it. It is also super light and feels so good.
I am currently loving my Peruvian virgin hair , thanks to Super Natural Hair. I have on a mixture of 26 and 24 inches natural straight. The texture of this hair is super great.

For Autumn Winter 2013, London based label Chichia explores the concept of communication through dress in their dress concept collection. As they offer the 13 key dresses every Chichia girl should have hanging in her closet, details such as multi ruffles, tiered dress bodices and skirts and manipulated style lines are featured throughout the collection in Chichia's signature playful contemporary and easy to wear silhouettes with a refreshingly vibrant colour palette.
Quirky details such as stained-glass window inspired patchwork khanga prints are inter-mixed with bead work, sequins, print, solid, and everything inbetween. Swahili khanga sayings are a re-ocurring feature throughout the collection, either as all over print or strategically placed as a homage to the beautiful language. Playfully mis-matched slithers of underskirts are left on show and placed with contrasting prints; juxtapositioned colour palettes break the rules as mismatching becomes the norm. The printed East African cotton khanga is featured as well as referenced and used alongside fabrics such as viscose, cotton and jerseys. Modern quiet luxury with a splash of whimsy, Who says winter has to be bland?
