flaxseed/linseed gel // #DIYwithDami // YouTube

A natural hair gel which is deceptively easy to make. This is the first time I have ever done this and I really cannot believe the results I’ve achieved, it’s time for me to throw out all my other gels. This is a lovely styling product that adds plenty of moisture to the hair.

mother’s day embroidery hoop // YouTube

There can come a time where you’re short of money, but you can never be short of ideas! This is a simple (well it can be) way to give something sentimental and unique to a loved one. So, for this Mother’s Day I decided to give my mum a memento that showcases my creativity with this embroidery hoop. It ended up looking a bit juvenile but I’m mostly happy with the result. In the future I hope to learn an expanse of embroidery techniques to design plentiful hoops!

date day/night look // base eyes lips // YouTube

Have a date coming up?

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, this is a soft, versatile look that you can wear on any date, with any outfit, at any time, glam but not too glam, so if your date isn’t a serious candidate you won’t feel like you went too out of the way.

how to make akara // #cookwithDami // YouTube

Let’s cook!

Over the last year or so I’ve been trying to divulge in learning to cook Nigerian dishes to get closer to my heritage, but more so to have the best food for myself. Most recently I made akara for the first time – so here it is! If I can do it, anyone can do it. This is probably one of the simplest Nigerian recipes you will ever follow.

Valentine’s is coming… tomorrow! It’s not too late to buy the ingredients to serve your partner (or yourself) breakfast in bed.

glitter earrings // re[fashion] // YouTube

1st episode of re[fashion]!

Welcome to the first episode of re[fashion]! This series is somewhat a subsection of #DIYwithDami where I transform pieces of whatever.

I chose this song (Tyler, the Creator – Glitter) because duh. This is such an easy way to amp up a piece of jewellery, and as shown in the video, you don’t have to just use glitter nail polish you can use solid colour, metallic, duo chrome, anything! Comment below if you have ever tried anything like this yourself. I’m going to take these earrings I got on sale from Primark and customise them. I saw them and I instantly thought of the lovely coloured Perspex hoops that Alissa Ashley can sometimes be seen wearing – on this Instagram post for example.
