Being Mixed Race: My BBC 5 Live Interview

Recently I was lucky enough to be contacted by BBC 5 live in regards to a series they are doing on diversity in the UK (please see the video above). 50 years ago, the Race Relations act outlawed discrimination on the "grounds of colour, race, or ethnic or national origins" in public places. The focus of this series is to see whether, 50 years on, discrimination and racism still exists within the UK. Having spoken openly about my experiences of growing up mixed race in the past, I jumped at the opportunity to discuss this with a larger audience. Read on to learn more about my experiences of discrimination, and listen in on our conversation!

Words of Empowerment at Curlvolution 2015

It's that time of year again! May Bank Holiday weekend; the weekend of two huge Afro hair events - Curlvolution and Afro Hair and Beauty Live. Last year's Curlvolution was the first natural hair event I had ever gone to, having only set the blog up a few weeks before! Now one year on, and with my blogger pals around me, it was time to come together again to celebrate the beauty of Afro hair. However, none of us were prepared for how eye-opening and empowering the event would be. Read on to see what we got up to at Curlvolution 2015!
