Last week’s luxe washday

So I’ve been thinking about how to mix things up a little re hair products (aka reviews). There are soooooooooooo many products out there and the thought of having to tell y’all every detail of every single one of them I try feels, well boring (for you and for me that is!) So, in

Natural Hair Event Alert: Suki Suki Naturals Pop Up

  Kicking myself (hard!) that I can’t make this but if you’re in Jhb pop by. I’ve already shared my thoughts on the brand way back but since then they’ve launched several other interesting products like their Activated Charcoal Shampoo Bar, Marshmallow Root Shampoo Bar, Styling Pomade and Whipped Shea Creme. The venue, Ants is

Emma Anderson

I’ve not wanted to write this post for the longest time for fear of jinxing things. Emma’s doing good. More than good. She couldn’t be better actually. She’s chasing moths, biting me, running around the house at top speed crashing into things, killing birds & lizards, moaning to be let outside (or for a

So Emma’s not well…

I literally cannot think about anything else. It feels like I was just writing this post telling y’all that she’s been with us a year and she’s doing great and she’s cuter and naughtier than ever and and and… And a few weeks later in June, things started to change slowly. It wasn’t that


Let it be known that 2016 is definitely the year I’m going to enjoy my fro. I started off the year with a blow-dry/length check (my 1st ever since going natural, so in 4+ years) and when that went well I knew colour was next. More time that I’d like to admit was spent

365 days of Emma

Today marks a year, 366 days actually since I brought Emma home and if I had to say what she’s brought into our lives everyday, its joy. I’ll save you all the gushing except to say she makes me look forward to coming home each day, makes me want to travel less (really!) and is

Natural blow-dry/length check – so here’s what we did…

(I’m just realising I’ve typed “what we did” in the title of this post as if I did any of the work – unless sitting on my behind for so long that it felt like it was fusing with the chair counts!) Ok so what did we he actually do in this five &

Hello 2016 & goodbye afro!

If I didn’t make myself sit down and write this here post you’d be reading it sometime in September. So belated happy new year and all of that stuff – I’m going to jump right in… I have a very particular skill to m-u-l-l over things. Like, I think about stuff. A. Lot. Too

The only kind of bling I want!

Not going to lie you guys. When Shimansky got in touch I was already going “oooooh” in my head as soon as I saw their name in my inbox. Something you probably didn’t know about me – I don’t do costume jewellery. At all. It’s not even something that changed as I got older.

Earth Cred – do your bit for the planet & win!

A strange thing happened without me knowing it over the last year and a bit. I sort of kinda without thinking about it, bit by bit went green. I see you rolling your eyes. That’s ok. I once rolled my eyes at the likes of me too. I’ve spent some time thinking about how

The best person I met this year

A couple of weeks ago I walked into a restaurant for a Feminist Stokvel meeting. It was a tiny place, maybe 4 tables in total of which 2 were pushed together for our reservation. At one of the other 2 tables was a family sharing a meal. A mom, dad and a daughter of

Design Essentials – Almond & Avocado

So more Design Essentials came across my desk recently & if you’ve read any of my previous posts about them you’ll know this certainly isn’t a bad thing! This time they sent me their Almond & Avo range (part of the Naturals collection) & let me say upfront before I get into the review

How I started my veggie garden

Time to get back to some proper posts! 🙂 Note this piece isn’t called “how to start a veggie garden” and for good reason. I just did my own thing, totally winged it & it mostly paid off. As it turns out, I’m a little better an gardening than keeping an orchid alive! We’re

Warsan Shire in Conversation with The Feminist Stokvel

“Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” ~ Warsan Shire Oh my God – when I read this for the first time

Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi

No complaints when some more Design Essentials came across my desk recently. I liked using their naturals range a couple of months back so I was hoping that their Coconut Monoi range would show my fro some love too. I got sent 5 products from the Coconut & Monoi range (left to right): Deep Moisture Milk

Photo Post: Addis Ababa (now with photos!)

Guys (for those of you who subscribe to new posts) I’m sorry for sending you another blooper this morning. I’d already written & scheduled the post but the pics were taking so damn long to upload  and it was after 11pm last night so I thought I had cancelled the scheduling & do it 1st

Moisturizing Natural Hair

Morning! Sorry for this morning’s fumble (you may have received a weird/incomplete post from me *sigh*). Here’s the update – a piece I wrote for Inecto on moisturising natural (in fact all kinky, curly hair). If you hair’s textured, you need to read this! Not forgetting that if you’re in any kind of protective

Feminist Stokvel Hair Soiree: Dem Baby Hairs!

Right off the FS press desk… — On Saturday 19 September, The Feminist Stokvel is inviting everybody that is raising a black child (white people raising black children are especially welcome) who need some practical tips on looking after them baby hairs from washing to styling or any parent / sibling / nanny who

Emma Anderson

I’ve been holding out on you… When Sofia died, no one understood like the good folks at Cataholics. I went around often just to chat or play with the kittens. If I was really lucky & went in the afternoons I got to see a kid come in with their mom, excitement overflowing at the prospect of

Introducing Feminist Stokvel Weekends

We’re doing things a little differently… Be sure to follow Feminist Stokvel on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for updates. W xoxo

Dear 17 year old me

Last week I finally picked up my new ID – some 4 years on. I have absolutely no attachment to my maiden surname. I can’t really trace it back in my family. It didn’t mean anything to me. At all. People would often ask me what it meant. Um, nothing. So many people asked me if it

16 things I miss about my Sofia

  This face (I mean… look at it!!!) These paws! She was a natural born poser… …And a photo bomber of note Whiskers on fleek! Escape artist extraordinaire She made the best faces She liked to eat She loved to sleep She was fascinated by the rain She had the best hiding places She taught me

As I Am’s Leave-In Conditioner – it’s a goodie!

If you have curly/kinky hair I don’t need to tell you As I Am is one of those lusted after international brands I’ve known about almost since I went natural.  But (& big BUT) I could never bring myself to spend that kind of money on it. I mean I wanted it but… That’s. A lot.

A yellow rose

A couple of days ago I was in a store, rushed, needing to pee & paying for a few things. A had double parked so I guessed I had to run in though I really didn’t feel like it. At. All. I’m standing there in my tatty dress, hair standing on end, slip slops, sans make up

Eat This #1: Creamy Seasonal Mushrooms on Toast with Parmesan

I’m starting something new on the food front over here. Sometimes I just want to tell you about something so insanely delicious that it immediately goes on my mental list of “I-have-to-come-back-here-asap-&-get a whole-lot-more-of this-stuff” as soon as I’m a few bites in. And by the end of the meal it takes a good amount of
