My interview from Ms Tomes….

[1]   Where was your favorite vacation to date and why?

Favourite vacation will have to be my last holiday to Malawi this year, I witnessed my brother's wedding and got engaged myself, nothing can top that!

[2]   What’s your favorite hairstyle to rock?

I loved the results I got from my side bun, so effortless, yet sophisticated.

[3]   What’s your favorite Food and Drink?

Love roast pork and fav drink will be fresh mango juice

[4]   What’s your favorite movie and why?

Hmm... I love my movies, I will say Untouchable, that is the best movie I have seen in a long time, it is a French movie with subtitles and it translates to well, if a movie can be funny after translation, this it’s amazing. It’s wins with me.

[5]   How long does you wash days take?

Hmm... I would say 3 to 4 hours if I remove air drying time, I am really trying to cut this time down.

[6]   Where do you spend some of your free time – Blogs, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, hair forums?

I love hair blogs, my free time is spent reading blogs and writing blogs and watching YouTube hair video, seriously, it is sooooo addictive!

[7]   If you were stranded on a desert what are the 3 hair essentials you would want on you?

- Moisturiser, my hair will surely dry up on this warm island
- Wide tooth comb – nothing like detangling at 10 weeks plus post
- Moisturising conditioner – I am hoping am not stranded for more than 4weeks

[8]   What motivates you to blog?

I love connecting with people and helping others out. When I get lazy I always remember it’s a community out there and need to power on.

[9]   What was your career choice when you were a teenager and why?

I wanted to be a chemical engineer, I really wanted me to sit in a cosmetics manufacturing place and just make cosmetics, you would think I would opt for the oil places, but making cosmetics just fascinated me.


[10] Describe yourself in 3 words?
