My Curly Hair Routine

My whole life I have struggled with my curls. My mum always kept my hair short when I was young because I would constantly complain when she was doing my hair. Over the years I’ve struggled to find hair products that make my hair feel and look nice.

It is highly likely that there other people out there who struggle to control their own crazy curls, so I thought that I’d tell you my routine and hopefully it’ll be helpful for you or a friend.

  1. I wash my hair 1-2 times a week, often depending on what I have been doing over the week. I start off by using the AG Re:Coil Shampoo. I get a reasonable amount and massage it into my scalp, then rinse.
  2. I then use the  AG Re:Coil Conditioner. Starting from the bottom of my hair and working my way up. I then comb through my hair using an afro comb before rinsing it out.
  3. Once out the shower, I brush the last knots out of my hair with my Denman (D4 9 Row) Brush.
  4. Last but not least I use Miss Jessie’s Multi Cultural Curls. I’ve tried many hair products and Miss Jessie’s would have to be one of my favourites. I put a small amount onto my fingertips, then put it in my hair using the scrunch technique. It reduces the frizz in my hair and makes my curls look stunning.

Hopefully this was a tad helpful to handle your crazy curls. If you have any tips on how you control your curls, leave it in the comments.

My Brother

On Sunday, the 28th of January 2018, my mum and I said goodbye to my brother. He was hopping on a plane to go and live with our dad, stepmum and two baby sisters. It was heart breaking to see him leave but no matter what we said he had already made his decision.

My brother and I have always had a love-hate relationship. For the past couple of years, I’ve constantly been told off for ‘mothering’ him but I’ve never meant to do it on purpose. Because he’s my younger brother, I’ve always felt the need to protect him and as I’ve grown older the need to protect him has grown stronger.

Although we occasionally argue, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for my baby brother. Both of us love to have a good laugh and we often tell jokes to each other (some of which are so silly that they’re funny) and we both love to watch similar television shows.

As you can tell I am a very protective older sister and having my baby brother so far away has been a bit of a struggle as it’s harder to watch out for him when you live a 15-hour drive away from him. Although I miss him so much, this is the decision he has made and if he’s happy that’s all that matters.

Do you have a younger or older sibling? Do they live with you or somewhere else? Tell me about them.

Until next blog…

Bali – January 2018

I just recently went on a holiday to Bali with my family. Bali is a favourite holiday destination of mine as well as my family’s. This holiday was a tad more stressful then usual as we travelled with other family members who made things more difficult than necessary.

Whilst in Bali, we stayed in Tempat Tenang, a villa in Legian. Staying in the villa was amazing as we had our own space to relax as a family without having to cram into one hotel room to spend time together in the late afternoon. We also didn’t have to worry about busy public pools as we had our own private pool.

Throughout the nine days we were there, we spent majority of the time relaxing by the pool and wandering through the streets of Kuta and Legian. On the 10th of January we went on a ATV Tour. It was quite an experience as we got to view a part of Bali we had never seen before. We drove along the beach, through villages and rice fields. It was an experience my family and I will never forget.

Bali is a wonderful place that I recommend everyone to visit at least once in their lives.

Until next blog…

My Music of 2017

In case no one has figured it out yet, music is a massive part of my life. No matter where I am or how I’m feeling, I will always be listening to music. So I thought I would write a little blog on the music I have loved this year. Some songs were released during this year and others I only discovered this year.

  1. Don’t Blame Me – Taylor Swift (2017)

Taylor released her long anticipated sixth album, Reputation, on the 10th of November 2017. Fans such as myself had been waiting for this album to come out for three years and lets just say it did not fail to disappoint. This song would have to be my favourite off her album. Her vocals are amazing as per usual and I love the steady drumbeat that is consistent throughout the song.

  1. Tell Me You Love Me – Demi Lovato (2017)

Demi has come a long way from her Disney days and her music has grown throughout her career. I love how during the chorus of this song, a choir sings along with Demi. I feel like the choir brings a certain element to the song and makes it sound fantastic.

  1. Pray – Sam Smith (2017)

Sam’s voice never fails to amaze me. His songs are always so beautiful and sound like they’re sung from the soul.

  1. Never Ending – Rihanna (2016)

Rihanna has a fantastic voice and you can’t deny it. This song is purely amazing. I don’t really know how to explain the song, so you should just go and listen.

  1. Break Up In A Small Town – Sam Hunt (2014)

I haven’t heard many of Sam’s music but I love how his sound is very different from a lot of other artists. He alternates throughout the song by talking during the verses and singing during the chorus.

  1. Four Feet in the Forest – Ziggy Albets (2016)

Ziggy is a fellow Australian and his music is so soothing. Whenever I listen to his music it makes me feel like I’m relaxing down at the beach.

  1. Calm Down – Skip Marley (2017)

Skip Marley is the grandson of Bob Marley and it’s quite clear that they are a very musically talented family. This song would probably have to me favourite song of the year. The song talks about how we can get worked up and that we just need to calm down.

I encourage you to listen to these songs as well as the others I have in Spotify playlist that will be linked.

Until next blog,

My Photographs

By no means am I a professional photographer but occasionally I like to take some photos. Some of my photos can turn out great and others well… not so much, so I thought I’d share some of my favourite photographs with you.

This photo was taking at Hearsons Cove in the North of Western Australia.

I took this photo just before a storm started in one of my favourite places in Western Australia; Wedge Island.

This is my puppy Angel. She sadly passed last May but lived a great 9 years. This will forever be my favourite photo of her.

This is my puppy Shiloh. She is currently 10 years old and thinks she rules the world as you can see from this photo of her.

I took this photograph at a couple of weeks ago whilst hiking with my family. Being here makes you feel like you’re in a gorge rather that close to a city.

This is one of my all time favourite pictures. This was taken a couple of years ago whilst I was visiting Vanuatu with my family. I loved being able to be apart of their culture and being able to capture it in a gorgeous photograph of them dancing and singing.

So here’s a few of my favourite photographs I have taken. If you want to see more let me know. Hopefully I’ll blogging properly soon.

Until then,

Songs That Mean Something

I listen to a lot of music. Some I love, some I like and some not so much but not many songs actually mean something to me. Here are some songs that have a special meaning to me.

What A Wonderful Word by Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy
This song means so much to me. My great grandmother passed away late last year and from the day she passed till the day of her funeral, I had two songs on repeat. One of the songs was this particular version of What A Wonderful World. I listened to this song non stop from Friday to Wednesday and on the day of her funeral this song was played. I took it as a sign from her and ever since then it’s been a song close to my heart.

Dixie Chicks
I’ve listened to the Dixie Chicks for as longs as I can remember. They’re one of my favourite girl bands and I can’t remember I time when I didn’t listen to their music. My nan always tells me about how we use to sing Hello Mr. Heartache together and to this day we still do. Some of my favourite memories are dancing around with my mum, aunties, cousins and my nans, singing Goodbye Earl.

These few songs have great meaning and I totally recommend you have a listen to them because they are truly amazing.

Favourite Series

I never leave home without a book. No matter where I go there will always be a book near me, whether it’s a hard copy or on my kindle.

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite series with you all. So here goes…

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

This is probably one of the best series I’ve ever read. These books are YA Fantasy and are filled with vampires and romance. Vampire Academy is based around two teen girls who attend St. Vladimir’s, a school for vampires. There are three types of vampires. Dhampir’s (half human, half vampire), the royal vampires formally known as Moroi and then there are the evil vampires, Strigoi.

Rose is a Dhampir and her best friend, Lissa is a Moroi Princess. The series follows the two girls as they navigate their way through the danger of their lives and confront the attraction of their forbidden romances.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Bloodlines is the connective series of Vampire Academy. This series follows the story of Sydney, a young alchemist whose job is to clean up the vampires mess but is soon sent undercover to help protect the life of a certain Moroi princess, Jill Dragomir. Whilst she’s undercover, she goes against all her training and instincts and starts to become friends with the Moroi and Dhampir and soon she falls for a certain Moroi boy…

Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray

This trilogy follows Marguerite and Theo who are jumping through dimensions trying to find Paul, her dad’s killer. In each dimension, Marguerite has to find that dimensions Paul and see if her Paul is currently inheriting his body. She meets many versions of him and herself and eventually starts to question what really happened to her dad and starts to question her own hearts desire.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

I’m pretty sure everybody has heard of Pretty Little Liars as it is a hit TV show. I recently got the series as a birthday present from my Dad and Stepmum and was so excited to start reading them as it’s one of my favourite shows. I was a bit weary as I don’t usually like watching movies when they’ve stemmed off books but majority of the books were similar to the show.

If you don’t know what PLL is about then let me tell you. The story follows a group of friends who start getting creepy messages from ‘A’ exactly four years after their friend Alison was murdered. The girls try to uncover the identity of ‘A’ but it’s not as easy as they first thought it would be. If you love romance and mysteries then I suggest to you read this series.

Those are just some of my favourite series and I can assure you I have plenty more. I totally recommend you read them as they are all utterly amazing. If you have read any of them then let me know what you think about them and feel free to leave any book suggestions.
