Nails of the Moment

BEAUTY
April 20 2018

There’s just something about coral nails that screams summer and holidays and vacations! I’ve been allowing my nails to rest for a few weeks, and I’d been digging the natural look. But today I felt like freshly lacquering them up, and decided on this coral by Essie called “Tart Deco”. They always have cute and witty names for the colours. Do you use Essie? What are some of your favourite nail polishes? xoxo

April 16 2018

I’ve tried and tested many makeup routines for very hot/summery weather, and one I always seem to come back to and love, is this one! It’s perfect for those very hot days, I’m talking highs of 30°C’s (80°F’s), if you needed to cover up blemishes, but still want your skin to breathe! I’ve even used it on days I’ve gone to the beach/pool side and it’s worked well. Below are the products I use, and I’ve dubbed… My Makeup HOT List: 1. SPF MOISTURISER/PRIMER: Bobbi Brown Protective Face Base SPF 50 This protects and primes my face! 2. BROW PENCIL:… Read More »

My Skincare Routine for soft and youthful skin

BEAUTY
December 21 2017

EPARA x SHIRLEY B. ENIANG EPARA is a luxury skincare brand, founded by Ozohu Adoh. Ozohu discovered organic ingredients from Africa, and has carefully curated each product. It brings me great pleasure to know that this brand had someone like me in mind to create for, as a woman of colour. Beauty to me isn’t just limited to the outside, it comes from the inside too, and one of the reasons why I absolutely love this brand, is because of the origin of it’s creation. Ozohu is a Nigerian, just like me, and she felt that there weren’t many luxurious… Read More »

Hello! How are you all doing this Easter Weekend? It’s a long one isn’t’ it! I said to my friend the other day, “we get to have two Saturdays and two Sundays yay”! It was only recently that I really got into my weekends, as my weeks have become so busy. I look forward to kicking my feet up or going out with friends, and keeping far far away from heavy work!

BEAUTY

Apart from the fact that the all white and minimal packaging spoke to my soul, I was quite interested to try out NARS Skincare.
