October 2017 Favourites!!!!

23393930721_329828a0a2_b

 

Need to look prettier this autumn season, well these are my cool recommendations for you. Here are few brands where I could use every product from their line to create a full face of makeup. Especially when you take moisturiser, eye cream, serum and primer into account first; then the number of candidates becomes rather small. Yet, I’m so happy to say that I could walk onto a Chanel counter, Mac or any drug store makeup counter choose a full entire face of makeup (what a dream that would be) and know that I will look my absolute best at the end of application. There are just so many products that I really adore and feel deserve more hype. Their eyeshadows for instance from channel, whether powder or cream, are some of the best out there and always pop up in the most beautiful shades. You may also want to use Black opal powder for baking your face instead of the B9 powder. The day and night cream of channel is the best, how I wish I could afford them. Few years ago, when I used to work with MOOI perfumeries in The Netherlands, some customers do walk in the shop and spend thousands of euros on skin care products, I did admired them a lot.

I am currently loving the Channel chance perfume, it smells heavenly. But there are a number of other products that I have been using and adoring now for a few months, and it was about time that I brought them all together for a run down. Take a peek at what my current favourite beauty buys are and how you could integrate them into your own routine!

I hope you are inspired.

Autumn Hair!

 

This season, I have done autumn fashion, makeup look. Here is an autumn hair look book. I usually wet my hair a little bit before brushing it to make it nice and soft. I love blow-drying  curling my hair too, braids can be a great alternative this season because it requires less blow-drying. I do get my hair inspiration from a YouTube guru Luxy hair founder called Mimi Ikonn.

I’m also considering studying “HOW TO” braid tutorials on YouTube. For Makeup, now it’s Autumn and the nights are drawing in quicker and the leaves are turning brown and crispy, I thought it apt to change up my makeup up a bit (maybe I was feeling a bit daring this day). I treated myself to a new lipstick from the Mac counter, I picked up a dark red colour, I also love wearing viva glam by Rihanna too. For my eyes, I love wearing Lancome eyeshadow, smashbox, Givenchy and urban decay. giggle).

Budget Party Planning Tips!!!

Hey muffins, want to throw your child, spouse or colleague a party on budget? Here are some cool clever cost-cutting ideas:

  1. Go digital in inviting people, do not spend money printing cards for your bash, rather invite them via Facebook or Whatsapp.
  2. Tap your network for entertainment, contact a friend that is good for MC, can sing or dance instead of inviting an expensive artist to perform.
  3. Order birthday decorative items online, sites such as Ebay, amazon, alibaba.com has very affordable birthday or bridal party decorative.
  4. You do not need to cook expensive meals, you may serve, fried meat, chicken, gizzard and some loempias.
  5. Buy your kids, spouse or colleague awesome gifts that can last them for very log time such as wrist watches, headphone etc. You may want to give a gift card from Fashion chick, topshop, Tesco, albert heijn or bol.com
  6. Wear cloths you already have for the party as long as the clothing is clean and well kept, you may just buy some trendy accessories to make it look more glamorous.

I hope these tips where helpful!

I love you so much.

10 Ways To Improve Your Mood!!!

Hello muffins!!!  I was inspired to write this post by a friend of mine! Everybody is different, and everybody has different ways of dealing with periods when they are not in their best mood but if you’re looking for suggestions, you may find these helpful:

  1. Step back and self-reflect. Whenever I start feeling down, I try to stop, reflect, and get to the root of my feelings.
  2. Reach out to someone. I used to bottle up my feelings out of fear that I would be judged if I talked about them. I’ve since learned that reaching out to a loving, understanding person is one of the best things I can do. You can reach out to a trusted friend, partner or relative, it’s ok to cry on someone shoulder. You can discuss how you feel and brainstorm on how to make you feel better.
  3. Listen to music. Music can heal, put you in a better mood, and make you feel less alone, or take you on a mental journey.  I love listening to gospel music, Rihanna, Davido, Psquare, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Coldplay and wiz kid.
  4. Cuddle or play with pets. If you are blessed with pets, that is terrific, spending quality time with a loving pet can instantly make your heart and soul feel better.
  5. Go for a walk. Walking always helps me clear my head and shed negative energy. It’s especially therapeutic if you choose to walk at a scenic location. You may decide to register in a Gym, engage in sporting activities.
  6. Drink something healthy and reinvigorating. For some reason, orange juice always puts me in a better mood and makes me feel revitalized and serene. There are many health and mood benefits of drinking orange juice and other fruit juices. You may also want to drink minted thee or other flavored thee.
  7. Write. Writing is usually the first thing I do when I’m feeling down. It always helps me get my thoughts and feelings out in front of me.  I love writing this blog post to inspire, reach out to you my awesome readers. I do a lot of research, I do ask people some questions such as how to you get better at your job? What are the activities that you engage in to make you feel better, etc., I get a lot of feedback that is how I learn. Please do not be afraid to make new friends, and be open. It’s part of living! A friend of mine always says, you only live once, which is very true.
  8. Take a nap. Sometimes we just need to recharge. I always feel better after getting some rest.
  9. Plan a fun activity. Moping around never helps me feel any better, so it usually helps to plan something fun to do if I’m feeling up to it. It can be something as simple as creating my own vision board or something as big as planning a trip. I enjoy playing with my kids a lot. I also love to go window shopping when am bored, or hangout in the library, with friends, do my groceries, and cleaning your home, cloths, garage helps a lot too because your mind tend to be occupied and you do not get to think about negative stuff.
  10. Do something spontaneous. Some of my favorite memories entail choices I made spontaneously. We should all learn to let go of routine every now and then and do something exciting and unplanned. You may go for a spontaneous trip or decide to spontaneously do 200 meter race, challenge yourself every day, and have something or someone to look up to. You may listen to great motivators such as Oprah, Brian Tracy or listen to funny YouTube videos such as The Ellen show, two and half man and the big bang theory.

Please do share with me tips on how you tend to elevate your mood and feel better when ever you are not feeling so excited, do love to hear from you.

I hope you are inspired.

I love you

AUTUMN IS FINALLY HERE!!!

How amazing! Autumn is finally here!!! I went to Primark few day ago, saw some cool Christmas decorations. Yes, it’s almost Christmas too. Vey soon we all are going to start hearing the old amazing song, jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle all the way! So for as long as I can remember autumn has been my favourite season. In my head it reminds me that we are heading toward the end of the year and it gives me another push to get busy working on my goals for the remained of the year. I also think it’s a combination of the natural change in colours, with gorgeous browns, yellows, reds of the leaves everywhere, and the cooler temperature that I love. I get this slightly weird sense of excitement when I realise autumn has arrived, and my mind starts buzzing with all the colors, styles and outfits that I have been looking forward to digging out. I love layering up, and getting the boots, scarves, and jackets out, (SOOO many options!) Also I love the feeling that Christmas is around the corner!

Although, am going to miss my pretty colorful summer outfits! Well, we have to wait till next year. If you happen to live in a warm country such as Nigeria, Ghana, well done and carryon with the colorful clothing!

Some healthcare tips, buy some cool scarfs for winter at H&M, primark to cover your chest in order to avoid cold, dress proberly, always have three layers of clothing before leaving the house.

Drink a lot of hot thee. Eat properly, use warm blanket in bed.

I hope these outfits inspires you! I have a combo of summer and autumn look here!

P.s Does anyone of you know where to shop for very cool affordable winter cloths? In the Netherlands, there is a shop called ZEELAND HALL and also dorcas winkels for very affordable cloths if you are on budget. You may want to check out Asos, C&A, primark, H&M, Newlook and Van Haren for shoes

I love you so much!

Time for Confidence!!!!

Confidence is one thing we all struggle with from time to time especially if you are an introvert. Here is a short story for you. Once upon  time, Over a decade ago,  I was a very very shy girl, my girlfriend’s then at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka Nigeria  then in Nigeria during the pre science programme I took part in for one year in order to study medicine after the programme ( although I ended up studying biochemistry on another university and graduated as a biochemist) literally forced me to contest for a beauty pageant, because I did not  have nice cloths, not enough money,  not such a popular girl at shool then,Also  did not have enough confidence to contest for the miss Mbaukwu beauty pageant, my friends had to rally around to all the necessary items I needed for the pageant such as awesome shoes ,cloths, I needed,

My girlfriends also helped me to organise people that would cheer me up then during the beauty pageant. Guess what , I won the beauty pageant. In essence , if you are not a very confident person, you need to hang around with friends and family whom reminds you of how amazing you are. Secondly, try to make new friends, wear neat Cloths , practise self grooming,  read books on how to be more confident, listen to online tutorials too.  All these tips would enable you make new friends and become more confident. Eating well, wearing makeup, emulating from very confident people (role models, mine are Bob Proctor, Naomi Cambell, Beyonce, Rihanna, Genevieve Nnaji, Prink and many more ) being in shape and exercising often is  also an optimum way to stay in shape and look fabulous. I hope these tips inspired you. I love you so much.

How To Wear Black Dresses!!!

Hey sugar, I have a confession to make, I love black dresses!!! No matter what season or year we are in, black is always back! This being said, do not lie to yourself that black is out of style or not cool enough for summer. Let’s recap some styling theories.

Black is flattering, nonchalantly sensual and you can never get wrong with it. Black is always elegant, even if you upgrade your outfit with a sexier touch. Moreover, during summer black means being super stylish and always sexy! For example, sheer black dresses or oversized summer jumpers for the beach wear will be much more fashionable than the outrageous neon dresses.

Today I am showing you this magnificent outfits I wore during my photo sessions in The Netherlands. You may want to shop for your black dresses online on shops such as Zolando, Ebay, Amazon, www.nelly.com, De Bijenkorf, Omoda,Wehkamp and many more.

I hope you are inspired.

I would love to hear from you what your favorite color is.

I love you

Makeup and Fashion Trend Autumn 2017!!!

Hello muffins! You all must have noticed, winter is around the corner, autumn is almost over! This blog post would inspire you on Makeup and fashionable styling for this season. I love wearing Mac lipstick, eyeliner,lipliner,concealer, foundation, blush etc. I also recommend black opal powder, concealer and foundation for dark skin ladies. Ysl, Blackup, Maybelline, Loreal are also great makeup brands. During the winter period, a good leather jacket from Omoda is a good buy. Primark has awesome clothing, manicure items and shoes for very affordable prices. In my video tutorial below, you would find some cool handbags you can wear for this season. Spending money on good quality handbags is a must, because it would last for decades. Few years ago, when I was still married, I used to get a lot of present from my hubby then such as handbags etc. Well if you do not have high income for high end products such as expensive bags, perfumes, you may want to save up and give your self a nice present everymonth, its a nice way to reward your awesome self.

Some good brands of bags are Gucci, Prada, Louis Vulton, Cartier, Michael Kors, DKNY, some cool perfumes for winter period is Channel, Chloe, Dolce and Gabana and Hugo boss. Sephora, Douglas, Ici parijs are great retailers. For Men, Channel perfume, Hugo boss, Calvin Klein are good buy.

It is also going to be very chilly during the winter period, drinking lots of hot thee, reading and listening to audio books and spending quality time with friends and family members is an awesome way to be happy this season.

I hope you are inspired!!!

I love you
