Feeling Powerful in Shop Kambia

You already know how I feel about this brand and the partnership has gone on for two months and continues to go from strength to strength. I really wanted to level up my content and I honestly feel that working with this brand came at the right time. As I’ve mentioned in a few posts now; my direction as a woman has changed. I seek to be respected, not seen and what I mean by this is that my dress sense has gone up a few levels.

Celebrating another year – Afternoon Tea at Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel

was going to name this post “Levelling Up” as this is what always comes to mind when I go to afternoon tea. I love the feeling it brings and it reminds me of why I keep pushing and working on this blog and my other ventures. What it would be like to go to afternoon tea whenever I wanted and to review various swanky hotels and seeing what they have to offer. I am blessed with the fact that I ran my own online magazine for 8 years which afforded me the luxury of reviewing ALOT of different afternoon tea venues. Yet, that was then and this is now and I really want to take sashashantel.com to next level and to review more venues like these.

Sasha Shantel X Creme of Nature

As much as I love wearing wigs, I am very conscious of the fact that I have a bundle of curly hair underneath it and that hair requires my attention in order to keep it healthy. I have spent number of years, trying out different products for curly/kinky hair and am pretty happy with the products I incorporate into my daily routine. I have always loved Creme of Nature’s products, particularly their Argan Oil based Leave in Conditioner which is nourishing for both my hair and scalp. I have also found that although it has been made with us curly hair sisters in mind, their products are also very versatile and I use both their mousse and leave-in conditioner on my wigs.

#GetCooking | Vegan ‘Quiche’

*Guest post

This is a staple in our house. It’s very tasty straight from the oven and works fab cold in a picnic with some pickle.

By all means make your own pastry, but there are very good vegan pre-made shortcrusts in every supermarket.

Embracing a new way of eating with Green Chef

I love food and those of you who follow me over on the Foodie Files know that eating is one of my favourite pastimes. However, when it comes to cooking the food, I have been known to be pretty lazy in that department 🙂 However, during lockdown, I made a conscious effort to get into the kitchen and learn how to cook and I must say I have become quite a seasoned chef.

Top 3 Benefits to Monchromatic Dressing

I spent the weekend reviewing my closet, organising my jewellery collection, shoes and clothing so I could start preparing for my Fall fashion looks. I can’t lie guys, it’s been really challenging of late to find the time to vlog (hence why nothing has gone live in absolutely ages) and to also put together looks. Working in a challenging day job, whilst trying to make my passion projects become my everyday projects is no mean feat. It was because of this though that in between sorting through these things, I also went through my images that haven’t been added to the blog yet.
