TGIFreeManicures and a Nail Growth Challenge

image

Let me just start by saying, not every time free stuff! Sometimes pay for stuff. Lol. This message is more to me than anyone else.
So, last week Friday, I dragged Elsie for a night out on the Island that was to start with free manicures courtesy a beauty subscription I’m signed to.

#TGIFreeManicures is one of a couple of exclusive events organised by Ez of Beauty In Lagos. It comes with her beauty subscription on her BeautyClubNG which is a great idea because she gets beauty deals for her subscribers at reduced rates.(I think I said beauty too many times in one statement.)

Hey guys. Another review here!
Whenever I post a review of a product on the blog, I just like to think that it is helping someone somewhere make a good purchase decision. The thing about me is, I can check for reviews of literally anything in the world. It’s so bad, I’ve checked for reviews of the rat tail comb. I mean, the 50naira blue comb that everybody has. I just like to know what people think about stuff and lots of decisions are based on their thoughts.

DIY: Fabric Choker.

image

I know, I know. I’m always the last to understand or get the hang of a  fashion trend, item or faux pas. I don’t really care much for clothes (I can almost hear some of my fashion blogger followers gasping). I’m just more of a ‘beat your face to perfection and leave the rest to God’ kinda girl.
I even just got my first pair of ripped jeans a couple of months back. In my defence, you’ll most likely get walked out of Clinic if you show up in ripped jeans and a choker.

Ella Lately || The “Currently I am” Tag

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The “Currently I Am” Tag is getting really popular among bloggers and is an amazing way of taking stock and saying all the things you’ve been up to without stressing so much.
I’ve seen it on a couple of blogs and as it is an open tag, I just thought to try it and add it to the “Ella lately” segment of the blog. In the last post on Ella Lately, I talked about medical school and losing my phone here.

Getting right to it, Currently I Am…

Wearing: my Zaron matte lip stain in the colour chilli. Everyday! I talked about why I love it, here.

Zaron X Onobello Valentine Package….Review.

image

Quickstory: Throwback to a few days before Valentine this year. I was sitting in class at about 1am and trust me, this is when the evil called sleep comes to tempt you. I got out my phone to distract myself and  came across Onobello’s 20 days of Valentine giveaway package where they teamed up with 20 brands to give out stuff everyday for 20days. Onobello is an online fashion and lifestyle magazine  owned by a lady, Ono Bello. I literally get so excited by women  owned brands.

The Deep Conditioner after my heart: ORS Replenishing Conditioner….Review.

Natural hair girls, get in here!
Kidding. Everyone’s invited. 🙂
I was looking for a staple DC for so long. I used the Soft and Beautiful Botanicals Deep Conditioner at the beginning of my hair journey but I wanted something I could easily find in a Nigerian market.
I read on a blog that the “ORS Deep Conditioner” is amazing. There were no pictures of it on the blog so when I went to the market I was looking for it in a tub and couldn’t find it anywhere. Everyone kept showing me this one in a squeeze tube and I just thought they were Igbo boys trying to sell their market.
You see, I thought It was a cowash conditioner and not a DC. So I judged the book by its cover. Continue reading

Amazing and Affordable Beauty Blender Dupes || Nigerian Brands.

imageI’m all for budget beauty. We know this. And I’m showing us today how we can save a couple of hard-earned bucks and still get amazing results with makeup.

The Original Beauty Blender is amazing, no doubt. Its micro fibre engineering and one of a kind exclusive material makes it a game changer in makeup and bla, bla…. But mehn…it is just too pricey.

I mean it was expensive before. Talk less of this Buhari regime where razor blade is 20 and bread is 400. The beauty Blender costs 7000. That’s the price of a bucket of tomatoes. Or better, a single MAC brush that I can use for 10 years minimum. I digress. Continue reading

My Black Cat, Blue Sea Award


image Many times, I just go about my normal blog business and my random posts and many times I really don’t think people pay attention to my little corner of the world wide web. But, sometimes, someone comes and drops a comment and I’m like woah, who are you and why do you love me?!

Thanks to everyone that has ever created those moments. I got my first blog award nomination from Esther of thoughts9367.wordpress.com (thank you, darling). Continue reading

Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Mat… Review.

image

My first (very modest) collection of brushes consisted of 5 brushes and a spooley. So washing was no big deal. My palm and a bar of white unscented soap (aka B29) was more than enough. But then, my “collection” grew and life became more complicated.
I still used my hands but the time for brush-washing stretched and the task became more arduous. I graduated to a brush egg but it was just too tiny and didn’t deep clean my brushes as the hype said it would.
