Hey guys,
After what seems like a lifetime, I’m finally back, up and posting again, yeeeesss!
The past few weeks have been something but I won’t really get into all that here or why I disappeared caused honestly a life update is much needed and I’ll have one for you in a few days. Other than that I’m just happy to be finally back, creating new content again.

The hair I’m wearing is the Indian Curly Virgin Hair which I got sent from the Aliexpress vendor OYM hair. The hair lengths: 4 Bundles – 24inch x2 and 22inch x2 with a “matching” free part 20inch closure.

Upon first receiving the hair, I noticed how soft the hair was (typically the case for new hair). I fell in love with the pretty curl patterns. The weft was well constructed and there was no distinctive smell. The only thing that was disappointing was the closure, which wasn’t the same hair type and curl pattern (looks more Brazilian deep wave).

I co-washed the hair, to clean and remove any chemicals it may have had and also to revitalise its curls, then left it to air-dry. Afterwards, I made it into a wig. I doubled the wefts and sewed it from ear to ear, until I got to the front where I then sewed the lace closure. I sewed the longer lengths at the back first to create length and dimension.

When it comes to styling I’ve been wearing it as side and middle parting and just leaving the hair to do its own thing.

Pro:

  • Really pretty curl patterns.
  • Very soft texture.
  • No strong smell.
  • Fast shipping (DHL 3-5 working days).
  • Closure and parting looks really natural.

Cons:

  • Require quite some maintenance and care (regular co-washing necessary to revitalise curls).
  • Hair sheds a lot when detangling and washing the hair.
  • Closure not same type as bundles, but still works.

Conclusion: ★★★★ (4 stars)

Really do love this hair, great quality and extremely beautiful curls. Been getting tons of compliments too :).

Tip

To keep the hair in top condition, I wash it every two weeks which redefines its curls, ensures a soft and bouncy texture and an overall healthier and newer look. After washing and deep conditioning, I use a curl defining custard to help emphasise its curls and tame frizz, then leave to air dry.
The days when I don’t wash it, I spritz my hair with a conditioner and water spray (1 part conditioner to 4 parts water) which adds life back into the hair!

Hey guys, hope you’re all doing well?
Just woke up from a much-needed nap and still pretty exhausted if I’m being entirely honest. Had my first day at (work) placement today, long and tiring are the two words that’ll pop into my head when I think about it. But hoping that’s just a first day/week thing. Oh, also just moved to Brussels (Belgium) too (if you didn’t know). I know, my life is hard to keep up with, but I’ll do all the explaining in another dedicated post. Anyways, I’m off to put on a face mask now, my skin has literally been going crazy over the last few days.

So here we are again, at the end of yet another chapter, my time here in Madrid has now come to an end. Since I’m fully packed now (hope my bags aren’t overweight), what better way to spend my last moments here in Madrid, than with a goodbye post (also going to get a kebab soon). Crazy how time flies, I still remember my first week in Madrid like it was yesterday, way less enthusiast and dying from the extreme heat. Believe it or not, I was questioning the constant travelling thing, I still question the constant travelling thing. Travelling can get lonely and tiring at times but even still, I don’t regret one single thing.

For the past 5 months, I had the opportunity to do what only many can dream of, I did dream of it once – to live life on Spanish soil. So what was it like living in a city like Madrid, amazing! Besides getting my passport stolen and not understanding Spanish, it was still amazing. The weather is just how I like it – hot (40 degrees when I first got here) and let me just put it here the Spanish can party – till 6 am in the morning and they do it every day.

The city itself is undeniable beautiful with its historical streets filled with numerous architectures. Trust me to share some its main attraction so you could reminisce like me if you’ve been here before and see, if you haven’t. So in order, we’ve got Plaza de Cibeles (with the Spanish flags), Primark Gran Vía (which is literally the biggest and coolest Primark I’ve ever seen), Gran Vía street itself, some random guys dressed up (lol), Royal Palace, Opera street and Puerta de Alcalá.

Since I am a food enthusiast and do greatly enjoy trying out new dishes I had to put in some of my favourite and traditional Spanish dishes. So in order, we’ve got Seafood Paella (would not recommend in Madrid), Ensalada Libanesa -Lebanese food, Thiebou Dion – Senegalese food, Shawarma Djeij w Lahme – more Lebanese food and their famous Churros (get it at San Gines).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a place is nothing without its people. It’s the people you meet along the way that determines what kind of experience you have and yess I’m proud to say I met some pretty cool people here in Madrid. (My list of international friends gets longer.) I’m honestly so grateful to meet so many genuine, fun and crazy (good-crazy) people. Trust me when I say my experience would have been rubbish without them and for that, I would like to thank every single person. I will miss you and I hope we meet again.

I think I’m getting better at this since I’m not crying yet, but I bet you I’ll be flowing a river as soon as I head towards the airport (that’s usually how it goes). But honestly thank you Madrid, for not doing what I wanted you to do or expected but what I needed, the space and environment to mature, advance and challenge myself and have fun. Like I said before a home isn’t a place but a feeling and I was once again reminded this here. I will truly miss you and most definitely will be back but until then, adios!

Hey guys, happy Wednesday!
Hope you’re week is going great, mine has been semi-stressful as I’ve been trying to get that post-exam recovery-sleep while attempting to complete the little things on my to-do list. Honestly just so excited that my bestie is coming over to Madrid tomorrow. I just need a break from life and all my commitments to really enjoy my last few days here left in Madrid. Yess, (I did mention it on my snapchat: billykissa) but my time here in Madrid has come to an end and this time next week, I shall be leaving the country. I’ll talk more about my time here in Madrid in another post, one dedicated to my experience.

Also I recently made an official facebook like page that you can visit here. On there I hope to share more behind the scenes pictures, direct links for outfits that I don’t officially blog, news and updates related to all things blogging.

Additionally, this post is in collaborations with Quanticlo, check them out for affordable trendy and cute shoes.
