Winter Hair

Winter braids the coup adiyam fashion blog london

Don’t mind me while I take it back to the 90s with my super long braids….

Originally I wanted to get my hair braided before heading to Berlin last week but I couldn’t find the time, what with all the festivities and all. Anyways, what do you think? I love, love, love them. They are super easy to maintain which means that I might just keep them in forever :). On another note, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine consisted of a few workouts and a whole load of lounging about. Me and El headed down to the Barbican yesterday which is always fun. We’re both back at work today after two weeks off. No rest for the wicked!

Enjoy your Monday.


Natural November


It’s been a while. In fact, more than a while. A month to be precise. Totally an unplanned absence. It started all with a bout of flu, and then my return to university shortly after. It’s a lot easier to keep on top of things when you’re in the swing of it all. But taking a break makes it all that more trickier. With that said though I’m now back.

Do you notice anything different? Something small perhaps? No silly, not the hat! :) I got some braids put in my hair for ‘Natural November’. Obviously this isn’t all my hair but I thought I’d give that natural-esch look a go. If I were to leave my hair completely natural I’d be rocking a Kelis-like afro. Cute but not practical with this weather. I’ll post some more photos for you later!
