The Costume: Black Wednesday Addams Makeup

I find it hard to come up with Halloween costumes ideas, no one ever gets who I'm suppose to be and always end up being a sexy black cat, this year I decided to be my spirit animal Wednesday Addams. 
This Halloween look took embarrassingly little makeup to achieve, the look was created by using only;

The Brows: Ecobrow from Levert Beauty

If you follow me on Instgram then you may already know about my love for Ecobrow brow defining wax, I've been using it for 6 months and my tiny little pot of was is still going strong. Ecobrow created by brow king Marco Ochoa, the mineral based paraben free wax is the most important item in my makeup bag.

The New Hero Products: The Curl Care Project

Hey Loves, it's been a busy couple of weeks but I haven't been sitting on my hands, Freya had her 3rd birthday and we have been trying out new products from Antidote Street. The Curl Care Project is a unique brand created to address the needs of children with textured hair in the care system. This a project close to my heart as I was in foster care from 11 months old. The Curl Care Project not only has a line of products but also workshops to help carers and parents care for coils, curls and kinks.

I'm pretty hands off when it come to styling Freya's hair, I don't think we really need to spend too much time primping and coiffing toddlers, we usually wash her hair once a week, and moisturise daily, however with the activities of a 3 year old Freya's hair often looks like the above! I was sent the TCCP Moisturising Shampoo and the Coil Cleanser to try out.

The Interview: The Curl Care Projects Shelly Line Tells All

I've been blogging for quite some time, and I've reviewed and highlighted many wonderful UK brands, and sometimes I come across something that strikes a cord with me. You may have seen my mentions on Instagram of a great new product line from The Curl Care Project, not only are they wonderful products [stay tuned for my product review] but they also work in tandem with workshops devoted to educating carers of children of colour in the foster care system. This is definitely a project close to my heart, as I was in foster care from the age of 11 months old until I was 16 years old. Growing up in foster care has many ups and downs for carers and children, as a child who was placed with carers from a different cultural background to myself [my foster parents are white] I fully understand the need for projects like The Curl Care Project. I grew up in the 80's before YouTube and the internet, and before the natural hair movement, I was subjected to doo doo plaits, brylcreem and tears [so many tears from myself and my foster mum] which definitely resulted in a tempestuous relationship with my kinks. Things have definitely come a long way since then. Not only do I have a new found love for my hair but brands like The Curl Care Project are here to advise carers to add to the amazing job they already do caring for foster children.

I caught up with Shelly Line one of the founders of The Curl Care Project.....
