Hey lovlies, It was so hard for me not to type an alarmist title for this post. I do need your help though, and I only ask because you’re my friends in my head! I’ve received an invite to a LUX event on Saturday and I have nothing to wear yet :-/ I know it’s only Wednesday but it’s a red carpet event and I know people are gonna bring IT! You might have seen the #Ignitethespark hash tag floating around on social media and that should be enough to tell you it’s gonna be quite the event.
Hey y’all! Hope you’re having a good day so far. Thought I’d show you the Flori Roberts lipstick line. they have a pretty wide range of lip products which include some really pretty colours that I’m lusting after. On my wish-list is Wild thing, Teak and Royal Ruby to be exact. I usually only wear red or pink lipstick but I really want to experiment a little more with my other colours. One thing’s for sure though, >> read more
In ‘diligent blogger diaries’, I’m squeezing in this post between watching Orange Is the New Black episodes. I’m a little late joining this bandwagon which I might have been better off missing completely. I haven’t been this hooked to any series since The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And Scandal, and Devious Maids! After hearing that Season 3′s release is set for May20-freaking-15, I’m dreading getting to the end of 2. I dug myself into this hole..sigh. Any of you in the same boat?
Anywayyy, I made >> read more
Last week, I received some beauty products from the lovely people at Flori Roberts and I’m happy to say that my make-up storage box is more than halfway full y’all-finally! I tested out the products all of last week, and I can honestly say that I’m officially a fan.
Apart from their wonderful products, I was impressed by the fact that Flori Roberts was the first ever cosmetics brand to create products for women of colour. They were clearly 10 steps ahead of the rest of them, huh?! They’ve been >> read more
I’m glad my last post resonated with so many of you and I apologize for that brief hiatus-I was going through some things. Life has a way of kicking you in the balls when you least expect it, huh? I was feeling so blah and demotivated until I decided to release it all and take care of myself a little. I’m looking forward to a new week, a fresh start. I’ve been eating crap (I keep falling of…smh) and I’m back on my clean-eating plan today.(Feels like I say that every month :-/) Anyway this is me, today, picking up and >> read more
I pulled my laptop out to write up a blog post and spent more than a few minutes typing and backspacing then staring at the screen unsure of what to say today. I opened about a dozen other tabs hoping that the blockage would fizzle out, then I came across this video that really spoke to my heart. I cried when she cried and nodded at every point she made because the same issues exist in the blogging world and life in general. Pulled this from the comment section:
It used to be “push me and I’ll pull you.” Now it’s “nobody helped me >> read more
Looks like Monday snuck up on us again! Hope you had a great weekend. I’m actually typing this on Friday night and scheduling it for Monday morning. I might have to work throughout the weekend and the new week is gonna be way to hectic for me to upload a new post. I might be coming down with a sore throat but I’m crossing my fingers that this drippy nose and itchy throat are just allergy symptoms that will be gone by the time I wake up.
Hi everyone! Hope your week is going well so far.
Last night, I attended a wonderful event at the Villa Rosa Kempinski and ran into some dope ass ladies I’ve always wanted to meet! It was a product launch for P & G’s new range of skin care products called Camay body care collection(More on that later). The set up was really pretty and now that I have a wedding to plan, I’m gathering all the decor inspiration I can get. The hors d’oeuvres were so good but I’m trying to shed a few pounds so I exercised some >> read more
This post is just to placate you while I get my ish together and finally get to uploading a new outfit post. That’s not to mean it’s totally useless. And if it is, to you, well, at least enjoy the pretty pictures! I’m seriously so proud of myself for this. And in the spirit of full disclosure, I totally jacked this ‘roses’ idea from This Is Ess. Sorry Sharon!
I’d like to think I’m pretty low-maintenance when it comes to skin-care (post for another day) and make-up. I don’t use a hundred things on >> read more
