Airport outfit styles

Happy new month and welcome to June. I am still stunned at how quickly we have come to midway through the year. June can be regarded as the official beginning of the summer ( well… at least in my mind it is). With the summer comes holidays and travel plans.
And here we are … discussing airport fashion.

What type of flyer are you?  Are you part of the glam squad with your high heels and 4 wheeled cases ? Or are you a fashion forward first class flyer. Maybe your more of a tailored and polished traveller.

I have definitely noticed a change in my airport fashion. More and more , I have decided to put comfort at the fore front of my dressing. While I have no issues with flying, it’s a no brainer that being comfort can and will make the flying experience more enjoyable and it will put you at ease.

I recently wore the Tall Lara Space Dye Lounge Top & Jogger Set from Boohoo. I was thrilled to learn that Boohoo stock a Tall range. I was even more pleased when the items fit well.

This outfit was perfect for all the airport hassle. Stomping up and down the escalators, bending and lifting suitcases .
I even relatively comfortable while slightly squashed in my economy seat.
Matching sets a great for that trendy sporty luxe look. Pair with trainers or plimsolls for that athleisure finish.

Happy holidaying. Feel free to let me know what your ultimate airport outfit would be.
In the mean time… here’s mine.

Crochet Braids 101

Hey lovelies, are you bored of your current hairstyle?
Stick with me ….am mixing things up a bit today talking all things hair. 

I am not my hair but I love the different looks and versatility of hair extentions .

So this post should cater to all your crochet needs. Feel free to ask me any questions you might still have. I used 8 packs of the Havana Mambo twist crochet braids. Each pack contains 12 strands of pre-twisted hair. 8 packs is more than enough to give you that big hair don’t care look.

This hairstyle is super quick. It’s almost as quick as just relaxing /perming your hair. I had this hair installed by my very able sister and first time crochetter  (that word is totally made up, but you get my drift). She completed the hair in about 2 – 3 hours. That includes braiding my own hair.

The hair is super quick to install because it come pre-braided or pre- twisted ( depending on which style you purchase )

Installation is done with a crochet needle.  No threads, yes I said No THREADS needs.
So you CAN actually 😴😴😴😴 while doing your hair.

I know your wondering how I shower or bath with all this hair…. now that’s the tricky part. Didn’t realise the hair would be see full. I normally creatively tie my hair up with an old pair of tights. That’s the nest I could think of. Shower caps just wouldn’t cut it. Let me know if you have any other smart ideas.

I have had a tonne of people ask if this hair is heavy. Yes there is some weight to it but it’s NOT heavier than your normal braids. The Havana twist hair is very light. It look alot heavier than it actually is. Believe me, I would not just deliberately carry bricks on my head.  If it was that bad, this installation  would be taken out pretty much straight away.

One more thing… if you currently sleep with 2 pillows, you might wanna down grade to just one pillow will you have this hair style.  This hair is very full and bulky so it could be your second pillow.

I totally love this hair and everyone loves it too. It looks just like actual braids on first sight.

Keep an eye on my instagram @ to see the various ways I style it.
