Hair Knot, Waste Not!

When traveling, its essential to remember all the minor details. I checked and doubled checked for socks, undies, toiletries and Undies… Yes I always triple check for the unmentionables! lol However something as simple as a Hair Tie I forgot! FORGOT. Completely slipped my mind, maybe due to the fact I am rocking this fabulous kinky twist style #werk girl thus allowing one to become care free. But regardless of how fly I felt, I didnt pack a scrunchie. Leaving the small minute nuances of my hair constantly falling in my face or just all over the place whenever I’m trying to get my bags and get off the plane / train has always there. You would think that would be an easy solution. As annoying it is, its became deceitfully difficult when in stores, shops around the medina to get a hair tie. Its escaped me on so many occasions, that I decided to blog about it and just give updates on the annoyances of allowing ones hair to be all over the place!!

I have placed some simple styles that you can accomplish with out anything but your long hair! All were accomplished by tucking tying or braiding.

XOXO Flirts


Morning Skies…

I am sitting on the terrace of my Riad watching the sky streak in magnificent oranges purples and deep blues as the sun rises over Morocco. It’s absolutely gorgeous, John Legend is crooning in my ears as I type this. The emotion that I am embodied by is I am Blessed. Blessed beyond measure. The calm in the morning allows ones thoughts to flow freely, the wonders of this world to touch us. The moment before all the hustle and bustle of our days ensue…

Have a great day Flirts XOXOXO

This is not something that I carry in my mind everyday, but it should be. It’s not necessarily a travel quote as much as a quote that informs all of our human interaction.

“Why, I’d like nothing better than to achieve some bold adventure, worthy of our trip.”


Solid goal for every vacation. What do you do to infuse your travels with adventure?
