How are ya? I'm doing well! I like to think that as our hair grows, so life goes. So why not share more than just our hair journeys? :-) So this here is just that : an update from the land down under! Yep! I'm in good ol' Aussie chilling with kangaroos and koala bears! Haha! I kid! I'm chilling with family as I prepare to continue my studies. Geek I am, geek I am. (This is the fourth country that I am moving to for further studies!! 0_o )
Melbourne is a beautiful city, I cannot lie. It's known for its delicious coffee and mouth-watering burgers. Melbourne's artsy, delicate and cozy cafes are perfect for an afternoon spent blogging or reading a favorite novel. I had my first cuppa cuppacino from MacDonalds and I was sold! If Mackers can get it right, you can only imagine what the "real" coffee shops have to offer. I'm bound to become a caffeine-head at this rate!
Let's not even get started on the burgers! I visited Ribs and Burgers, a South African-owned meat-lovers haven! I'll let the photos do the talking!!
Ribs and Burgers' ambience is rustic and colloquial. You're treated to South African carnivorian delights: your glazed ribs and premium mince burgers are served on a chopping board and your fork, knife and napkin are handed to you in a butcher's pail-jug. The restaurant still maintains a family feel though - its cozy cubicles and low-hanging bulbs-in-a-jar make it a space open for all!
I reckon, that you're probably reading this post because you're a hair lover!! I won't hold the updo secret much longer. :-) I'm wearing a curly afro unit in a side puff hair wrap. (Look out for deets on this unit and updo coming up soon!) Also, you might remember this scarf from this post on a hair products haul, or from this behind-the-scenes posts. If you're into wigs, you might want to click here for a wigging series that I did a couple of weeks ago.
Can we just agree that sunsets in Melbourne are absolutely stunning?! The sun's golden hues kiss my earth-toned skin ever so gently!!
Oh before I pen off, I sure do hope that you picked up a few hair tips from last week's styling series. I've learnt that the single most important aide to length retention, apart from moisture, is styling!!
Also, if you have any hair questions that you would like me to answer in upcoming blog posts, feel free to leave a comment on my latest Instagram pic here.
