I know I’m the only that sometimes looks in the mirror and doesn’t like the image staring back.. I also know that my skin isn’t smooth, my tommy isn’t flat enough, my hair isn’t curly or long enough, I’m a tad bit fatter than I want to be and generally my body isn’t just “body goals”. And at my age, I still have acne, the one that people promised me will clear up once my teenage years are over and oh! the stretch marks, these just keep appearing.. And some days, I see people with flawless skins who are other wise perfect and the insecurities set in. But you know what I came to realize, this is me! This is my body, this is who I am. I am so much more than the acne or even my straight white teeth, I am funny, smart, and so much more. So I learned to accept myself and love my self because flaws and all, that’s who I am and I can only get better. It’s a daily process though and that’s why I’m really excited about The girl journey event – The Project loving you! What is this about? I’ll tell ya.. Continue reading
Hi my lovely people.. So I started 2016 with a Bang! Okay maybe not a bang but bangs and pixie cut, same difference lol..
Anyway, If you’re reading this post then you made it to the new year and I couldn’t be more thankful for you because as we know, it’s the greatest gift to have life. I started this blog in 2015 so if anything, I’m grateful for the past year and all the lessons it brought but that’s not why we are here lol. I know I was away for a while but that’s because I had to go to Nysc camp and Bla Bla.. Don’t even want to get into that one.
So I took out the crochet braids from this post and had a wash day similar to this one minus the protein treatment because my hair really needed the love.
I wanted to start the new year feeling myself with a little bit of Rihanna on the side so what I did was make this Pixie cut wig! There’s a feeling you get when you do something and you know it’s all you! Who else can relate? Lol.. Btw, it was my first time so I was a little nervous but please why do I use all that data watching YouTube videos if I can’t learn anything? Lol. I’ll leave a link but I watched a couple of videos so I can’t even remember.. You could type ‘How to make a pixie cut wig’ into the search engine and see what comes out. Making this wig wasn’t super easy but it definitely wasn’t difficult..
So what you’ll need: Continue reading

So I just thought I should remind y’all that as important as it is to take care of your hair and grow healthy and beautiful hair, I think it’s also important to remember to enjoy that beautiful hair. Bring it out once in a while, style it, color it (can be temporary), blow dry or stretch it, do whatever works but just have fun because hey! It’s your hair..
So I’ll just post some pictures serving you some natural hair goodness and fun because long gone are the days when growing your natural hair was boring or reserved. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
Okay this post isn’t all hair related. It’s happy news related too lol. I recently bagged my Bsc. Degree in Computer science from Bowen University. I’m very thankful to God for being all He has been and will continue to be to me. And to everyone else who made it seem like beans who I’m sure I’ve personally thanked but well thank you again! If you follow my Instagram @forellamedupin, I’m sure I’ve brought a lot of similar posts to your explore feed. Lol.
