My Hair, Beauty & Style Secrets

October 26 2014


 Hello lovelies!

So I thought it’d be fun (and hopefully helpful) to make this video, as I’ve discovered so many tricks that have been working so well for me, right from hair styles through to bras that work perfectly with various garments!

I also had a little camera play, hence the shots! 😉 My top is a gorgeous number from Reiss. It reminds me of a dress that Beyonce wore to an awards show recently… white, lace, elegant…what more could you want?

I hope you enjoy the video!

    If you started directing your YT followers to your Blog it would move up in the Google page ranking system, currently you’re at a “0” and PR companies look for a PR 3 or higher for most campaigns, just something to think about.

    These curls are def a cute look. Wouldn’t have known it was a wig if you hadn’t said so. Looks really natural. (Slow build end-of-teen-movie clap.)

    Wigs have really come a long way since the 90s. I love being able to pop them off at night and tend to my hair easily, on a daily basis.

    Thanks so much for sharing your tips! I never realized you used wigs – it looks so natural and it’s great that it keeps your hair healthy! While I watching the video I was looking at your teeth and hoping you’d say what you use to whiten – I hope that toothpaste is available in Canada though!

    Please do a tutorial about how you made the lovely wig, it’s one of the best protective styles for retaining hair length.

    Afternoon Shirley,

    The video is sensational and the short hair is simply perfect! Wow! I remember once before you said you’d made all of your wigs, but I was trying to recall if you’d ever filmed a video of you creating a wig from start to finish. I’d love to see you do that and chat while you are at it! Just a possible vid idea. 🙂 I’ve natural hair as well. My goal is to protect it throughout this year, as my sister Chicken (Bernie) big-chopped my Sisterlocks in October 2014.

    Oh! Let me not forget the blouse. It is simply lovely. Somehow I imagine your Mum would have styled it in her photos that you love mining!!! I saw her in one of your videos and she is, like you, gorgeous!

    So happy I’ve ventured into your blog’s wardrobe this afternoon. What a delightful experience! Thanks! Inspiration shines out from you like a personal sun!

    Have a sensational day!!!
