African headwrap

it’s a wrap

And just like that, 2016 is a wrap.

The fact that you’re reading this post is a sign of God’s grace on your life, and I’m thankful that you’ve made it to the new year,  so before we dive into the topic at hand, and because my mama raised me right I want to wish you a happy new year, filled with health, peace and joy!

Lots of joy.


We’ve all witnessed them, you know, the posts that tell you to leave things in 2016, heck I wrote one too ( you can read it here).

But I’ve only seen a few posts that are encouraging folks to take a few of the lessons learned into the new year. I myself have learned a great deal of lessons. One of them is how to effectively make use of my time.

My time managing skills were non existing up until mid 2016 haha!

But I’ve found a couple ways to use my time effectively, and it may seem mundane to some, but the little changes can bring about big things!


I don’t know about you, but I like for my hair to look good lol, I mean what woman doesn’t?  And we all know, that when your hair looks right, all is well with the world.

You can wear a paper bag, but if that hair is laid, “can’t nobody tell you anything”.

In the last months, I’ve found solace in protective styles ( braids, crochet) and the time I’ve saved there has enabled me to use less time doing my hair.

And for those days where my braids have overstayed their welcome, head wraps are my go to.

I get my head wrap skills from my mom, her wrapping game is strong, but she’s also African, so it kind of comes with the territory. But if you don’t know how to wrap, there’s a gang of tutorials online that will put you on the right path.

If you’re into looking cute effortlessly, I’ve pinned some inspiration for you – click here to get inspired!



Would love to hear some of your style hacks, what do you plan on doing this year to help you maximize your time, leave a few lines in the comment section.

Until next time!

    Happy New Year darling! Loving that wrap. I’d love to try one not sure how it would look I’m thinking while I’m on vacation it may be a cool option. I am going to be working hard to manage my time better this year.
