02||Tales From Makeup Haul 

Currently Listening To Liam Payne Ft Quavo- Strip that Down.

 Happy 4th of July!! Staying home this whole ime got me thinking about what to do in the mean time before my internship clicks and I still cant figure it out..any ideas?

Before I came home from school,I just HAD to get these particular products cuz I’ve always needed them oh P.S in the spirit of makeup, I think I should actually show some of my works, and actually tutorials,it’s about time so get ready for some MOTD(makeup of the day).

So first off! I got an actual setting/baking powder(anyone you want to call it)..for the people that have seen my make up, uplease until now I haven’t been using any setting powder, I’ve been using Hacks>>Johnsons Baby Powder *I should do a post on my makeup hacks* Yup! Not that it didn’t work,I just wanted the actual setting powder and for some reason I wanted this Sacha ButterCup Setting Powder and no other one, not BenNye, not Classic just SBC..we have a spiritual bond in the makeup world.

Oh I got it for N4500..a review will come up in the future time when I use it

I hope I’ll love it

Up Next…LA Pride Oil Control Powder Palette 

BRETHREN! Shall we all say ‘It’s about time’ Lol okay, so this palette I got because I happen to do other people’s makeup so it’s just wise to get this small one. It has every persons color. So if you’re starting small or even for personal use, you don’t have to be a makeup artist before you can own it.

I got it for N4000 

And lastly…Lipsticks! So I got these ones cuz I just don’t have enough..oh and I found my perfect shade of Nude!!! Let me explain, so I can’t wear Nude or Pink lipstick without using something else to line my lips first. It makes me look sick so I figured out that every one has their own shade of nude/pink/red or any colour of lipstick and I was probably using the wrong shade and that was when I met classic nude..and the rest is history. 

I also got Ruby woo..it smells so nice

All that is left is my perfect shade of pink

I think I got them for N400/500 each


What setting powder do you use?                        Do you use Sasha ButterCup Setting Powder? What’s your take on it?                                              My new Photography skills ehh                               Do you have a special shade of nude lipstick?    Do leave a comment I’ll be waiting

DIY|| Natural Face Scrub with only 2 ingredients. 

Currently Listening to Ayo & Teo-Rolex

Hi guys!! It’s been forever, I’m sorry for my inconsistency but that’s about to change. Oh and Happy New July by the way❤ 

It’s my blog-anniversary month🎉🎊 

So today’s post is one I’m actually very familiar with so I decided to share with you guys, basically just think I got tired of those N3000, N650 face scrubs and I decided to try a more natural solution, that was when I found out about the Honey and Sugar scrub.. and how well it works.

So let’s get to it…

You can also check:

DIY:Pearl Ring

DIY: Turban Cap

DIY: nail art

What you’ll need

> Honey

> Sugar

> A container (Optional) 

What to do

This is pretty easy and self explanatory since it’s 2 ingredients 

> Pour the Honey and Sugar in the container and turn it with a spoon or stick 

> And voila! Your million dollar works-just-as-good scrub

I trust this method only because it’s natural, I think it’s basic knowledge that honey is a toning ingredient on its own 

> The Scrub clears your spots. 

> It opens up and black/white heads allowing you to remove whatever is in there

P.S Use it 2/3times a week. Oh also you can add coconut oil or even lime..but I only use and can give report on Honey and Sugar

So are you going to be trying this out? 

What do you think? 

Do you have any natural scrubs you use?  

 Until next time

          Love,


Day 15 ||Ramadan Tag With Leemah

Currently Listening To Alessia Cara -How far will i go 


Hii you guys *BearHugg* I’ve been away for so long, I’ve been writing exams since last week and my last paper is today*woop woop* Final Year loading lol, I can’t even wait to be done with school 
P.S A huge shoutout to my amazing Fountain University babies signing out and leaving me today

also, Today is the 15th Day of Ramadan, I can’t believe we’ve already fasted half way, it’s quite fast this year, anyway in honor of today I decided to do a tag with Halimah of leemlarh.com . She’s so nice, she’s the only one that even bothered to agree to this tag so thanks babygirl. You guys should please check her blog.

1. When do you start getting excited about Ramadan.

Immediately after the last one, I get excited for the next one, wish we could have two Ramadan in a year because of the blessing that comes with the glorious month. But the excitement get higher a month before the Ramadan, you can literally feel the excitement in the air. The preparation and anticipation is always exciting.
  2. What is your fave Ramadan memory

My favorite memory of Ramadan would definitely be one of the last ten 10 days of my last Ramadan in school. During one of the night prayers, we were on the last chapter of the Quran,and this heavy rain started and immediately the last verses was recited it stopped. Just had this magical feeling like God was with us and all our prayers were answered. It might just be a normal coincident but I felt it was something really spiritual. Can never forget that day.
  3. Do you have any Ramadan tradition.
Ramadan tradition? Well I like to always spend the last 10 days of Ramadan in mosque to increase my act of worship and devotion to complete reading the glorious Qur’an.


  4. Do you have a fave Ramadan food
No, anything goes but date is a must have for me everyday
5. When you fast, do you think about food

No. I don’t think anyone fasting during this month would think of food except thinking of what to eat during iftar (Breaking of the fast).


6. What makes you happy about Ramadan  

The fact that i will have full dedication to worship my lord. There is always this energy to do more act of worship during Ramadan.
7. Which is your favourite day of Ramadan ‎.
One of the last 10 days of Ramadan. “The night of majesty ” where all request/prayers are answered.
8. Any tips for people fasting?
Eat less, pray more.


  9. Do you ever miss sahoor.
Yes. Sometimes
10.  Have you ever forgotten you were fasting and ate. 

Yes. Well luckily for us Islam permit us to continue the fast since the eating wasn’t intentional.
 Well there it is guys.

If you’re fasting, how is it going? And up you’re Christian, how are your Muslim friends holding up??

Until Next Time, My Loves

Ramadan Kareem

                Love, 


DIY || Nail Polish Art: Polka Dot 

​​

Hi Loves. Happy new Week, Ramadan Kareem. How have you guys been? Fasting is still coming strong for me though anyway I should have posted this yesterday but I couldn’t find any nail Polish remover (when you fast, you shouldn’t use nail Polish etc) So to today’s post..

Today’s post is a DIY about nails, it’s basically how to make your own polka dot nails, it’s super easy to do.I hope you like it.

  •  What You’ll Need

Nail polish (white/cream and other different colors)

Needle


  • Step 1.



Apply your white/cream nail Polish 

Step 2


Use the needle to pick the first coat of nail Polish and randomly apply it and make dots 

  • Step 3




    Use the next colour of nail Polish to do the same thing on areas you didn’t use the first colour on

    • Step 4




      And Voila! Your very own not so expensive Polka Dot Nails.

      Things You Should Never Say To Your Nigerian Mum

      Currently listening to kelhani – Distraction 


      Hi Loves! Happy Sunday,How are you guys today? i’v never mentioned this on the blog and I don’t know why but I once wrote an article for beautygeekng it was on their instagram and website here.Fast forward to a couple of months later, they emailed me to write for them again, unbelievable right? Anyway i’m super excited and also down with malaria but that won’t stop today’s post which is about *drum roll* MUMS

      Mums are the light of our lives and the pain in our asses to be honest. So I decided to do this post when I gave my mum the ‘i’m not a kid anymore’ line..but let’s just say, I shouldn’t have and then I remembered other things too and tagged them as the things you should never say to any Nigerian mum. 

      I’m not a kid any more

      I told my mum this one time, but I was grateful it was over the phone she went from sweet mum to mumzilla straight up. She told me to come and pack my things from her house( which is technically my father’s house) immediately, she told me how i’m ungrateful and how I don’t know how to appreciate her effort and made a huge fuss and even hung up

      Leave me alone

      ​   

       OK o,you will be left alone and you should be ready to leave every meal alone. You’d starve to death. Even if she’s wrong you have no right .Has anyone noticed that it is the day you offend your mum she’ll cook something nice and feed your siblings till they blow up

      i’m not going to get married


      Haha! The king of them all..this one ehn!just expect a dirty slap accompanied with cry and a one-week deliverance, Let’s not forget fasting and prayer and! General Family meeting.

      Shut Up

      Just the thought of this one makes me laugh, I don’t know why anyone would ever want to say this cuz it’s automatic death, if you run to you neighbours house while she tries to beat you and they ask what happened if you mention it again, they’ll personally drag you there to be crucified.

      I like daddy more

      Best thing for you just keep this to yourself ,and if she knows just get to begging, call everyone you know to beg for you cause when she starts to drop the ‘dont worry’ ‘don’t enter my kitchen’ ‘your father will feed you’ ‘go and meet your father to buy the pen for you’ lines. You are just in soup

      Can’t understand what i’m saying

      You’re not even allowed to say this even if you’ve thought her how to change whatsapp dp or upload instagram pictures a million and one times

      Stop sending me broadcasts on whatsapp

      I once said this to my mum, til this day she never stops referring to it.i should have just kept quiet and enjoyed the broadcasts. She gave me the ‘it’s not your fault’ ‘I’ll send it to other children that will read it with joy’ and the ‘you don’t know the value of what you have until you lose it’ lines, just because of whatsapp broadcasts

      2nd position isn’t that bad 

      You’ll explain why you can’t come 1st right after she asks you if the person who came first has extra 500heads. If God is on your side you can play around but if not my dear, you’ll start reading for next session that day. And then you’ll tell her ‘what of the people that came last’, she’d slap you so hard, your ancestors will feel it.

      I have a boyfriend 


      Interpretation: prostitute..if your mum finds out about this one ehn, she’d call the whole family for an emergency meeting unfailingly the next morning, they’ll preach,pray,talk,yell, scream and they beg you not to let any man lie to you..sigh.
      Where should I put it

      Loool this one is the legendary question and ‘put it on my head’ answer..i don’t get why they can’t just say put it on the floor or the table

      Bonus:Days when my mum would call me from upstairs to bring the TV remote infront of her

       Do you know anymore things you shouldnt say to a nigerian mum?

      Do share in the comment section

       Until next Time
