BEAUTY TIP ⁣

Keeping face masks and eye creams in the fridge so that when applied they depuff the skin and give an awakening sensation⁣

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase (also amazing for skin as less friction means less wrinkles) ⁣

Burning incense and getting lost in a good book⁣

WHY DIZZIAK 

It gives me juicy curls and smells divine! What’s more to love?⁣

GREAT HAIR MEMORY ⁣

Bleaching my hair into a blonde ombre style when I was backpacking around South America. It probably wasn’t my best look but it just reminded me that it can be good to be impulsive and have fun with your hair⁣

NIGHTMARE HAIR STORY⁣

Between the ages of 11 and 30 I had relaxed my hair/worn weaves and when I decided to go back to being natural it was a scary transition. It took finding the right hair stylist (Subrina Kidd) to give me the confidence to really embrace my curls for which I’m forever grateful!⁣

ICON⁣

Nina Simone – not only did she have that incredible voice but she was ferociously, unapologetic Blackity-black black. And although her activism in support of the civil rights movement at that time harmed her career, she continued to stay true to who she was⁣

IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD

Bhutan – I’m fascinated to explore a country which prioritises GNH (Gross National Happiness) over GDP⁣

BEST ADVICE⁣ ⁣

Go travel by yourself. It’s the most incredible experience! Not only does it force you to be more engaged with the culture, the surroundings and the people – it also helps to reinforce that you really can take on challenges (like not knowing a language) and still get by
