Greetings Lovelies!
We all know the summer wreaks havoc on our tresses at times so keeping our hair moisturized is a proper must doing high temps.
Whether you co wash consistently or spritz everyday, a good deep conditioner goes a long way.
If you've been reading my blog for a bit then you know I'm a huge fan of DIY Deep conditioners because they're fun to do + economical.

This one I dub Cinni's Caribbean Cocktail
doesn't the name alone scream summer? :D
I'm missing Jamaica like crazy and a whiff of this yummy conditioner immediately takes you to the islands
So give your hair a vacation with this creamy deep. Peep the recipe after the jump

Artiste Spotlight - ArinMaya

Today's spotlight is on ArinMaya

Chicago born songstress now based in NY who dabbles in soul, jazz, neo-soul
this lady has some pipes on her that she uses to pour out moving lyrics on songs that you wanna play over and over again.

I became aware of her after happening upon her latest project which is a collaboration with producer The Imagination. Together they are Her Imaginings and dropped an EP earlier this year.
I spent the whole day just replaying the EP. That's how much I was (still am) into it.

My fav track from the project is "Get Outta Here" 
Just seems like something that would be playing in the soundtrack to my life.

Give the EP a listen and dive into ArinMaya and all that she is.

I have a thing for all things Jamaican since I hail from that lovely little island
Jamaican designer James Black who is responsible for Yahdie Conscious (apparel) & GlamHEAD (hair accessories)
has lines out this summer for both brands.

The GlamHEAD line aptly titled HeatWave features a natural haired model who rocked the heck out of the items.
These are perfect for adorning your crown in this summer heat. Looking chic while having your hair up!

Artiste Spotlight - Charly and Margaux

Greetings Lovelies!
Today's spotlight is on the dynamic duo Charly & Margaux.

You may have come across their pics on various natural hair sites & you've probably heard their music before.
Think you haven't? They did the strings and backing vocals on Kendrick Lamar's "B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe".

From their site-
Charly and Margaux are Brooklyn based string composers contributing a fresh perspective to contemporary music. Both classically trained at Boston College and Berklee School of Music, they are building an impressive repertoire of worldly music. Charly and Margaux have developed a distinct sound that defies singular genres by pulling elements from baroque styles, East Asian folk, and personal bluesy flavor. The duo write contemporary pieces they perform together and with their 5pc band that includes DJ Ginyard (bass), Andy Berman (guitar) and Justin Tyson (percussion).

Besides doing various gigs for other artistes, these two Brooklyn ladies have been making the rounds on their own, selling out shows across the country.
I love them because they take classical music and infuse themselves into their creations.
Fierce naturalists with an insane style serving it up on the strings? Yes please.
They conjure up my childhood dream of playing the violin but I never knew what I would do with it.. They are the epitome of what one (or two) can do with this classical instrument.

Check them out below 
Enjoy =)
