As a young lady in my 20′s, I’m still experimenting with my beauty regimen and will do so until my skin achieves a perpetual glow! The newest products I’ve tried are a bunch of Lux soaps, c/o Unilever. As a fashion enthusiast, I’m drawn to colour and textures, and the looks of these bars of soap did it for me! Pastel colours and a floral lace design? Check and check! I almost want to design an outfit inspired by them!
If you like scented soaps, these are for you! They are perfumed and are perfect for those who like to layer scents.
If you’re a fan of the brand, you’re in good company. Did you know Marilyn Monroe, Sarah Jessica Parker, Catherine Zeta Jones and Jennifer Lopez have all fronted Lux campaigns in the past? That’s pretty dope, if you ask me! Lux aims to serve the unapologetically feminine woman who is uplifted, sensual and uninhibited. Purchase your choice of variant in 100g or 200g, at a very fair price. Meanwhile, I’m throwing some of these in my gym bag to bless some women in the washroom after our workout session tomorrow!
I debuted this look on Instagram last weekend. Two of my favourite things: Red lipstick and Circle skirts. The former coz it’s so sexy, the latter coz it makes it so much fun to spin! Also having fun with this hair that Mr.A doesn’t like! He’s used to me having my natural hair, which he loves, or braids. He’s annoyed by the fakeness on me lately-acrylic nails and all this damn hair, lol! But, I’m keeping them till I’m bored. I’d actually be worried if he liked this more than my own hair-Ouch! As a young woman who’s passionate about beauty and fashion, it’s important for me to express myself in whatever way I chose and experiment with what’s out there. I’m a champion for natural beauty and I’ve wholly embraced mine, but that shouldn’t put me in a box when it comes to trying out new things. So, he’s gonna have to deal! Sorry babe
Have a beautiful weekend.

Whenever I have an event to attend, I wear false lashes and end up getting a good amount of compliments on them. I love the drama they bring and how they ‘open up’ your eyes. I find that wearing mascara isn’t necessary unless you want to amp it up. For a really dramatic eye, I’d wear 2 pairs-I need to give that a shot one of these days. These Flori Roberts lashes are incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. Unlike most false lashes, I didn’t have to trim the ends to fit my eye. First time application can be a bit challenging so make sure you have a bit of spare time on your hands. The most helpful tip I’d give you is to have a clean face, no oil, moisturizer or make-up, before applying them-I’ve learnt that the hardway!
Step 1: Curl Lashes
That was easy, huh? If you have any questions, please leave them below. I’ll answer them as son as possible.

P.S. I’m way past due for eyebrow threading!
As you probably already know, I’m a lover all outfits black and white, and a pop of colour is always a welcome addition. When creating an outfit, I always try coming up with something that I can wear on different occasions. If it’ a bodycon dress, I want to be able to throw a smart blazer over it and look office-appropriate. Take off the blazer, thrown on some strappy heels and I’m ready for a night out on the town. For this outfit, I went with a skirt than I can style both conservatively and liberally. With this matching crop top, the look is obviously liberal but with a button-up shirt or blouse, I’d perfectly fit into most corporate settings.
Kishanto, my new blogger boo shot these pics last week. She was so much fun to hang out with! It was our first time meeting and we totally clicked. I really enjoy connecting with creative minds and people who ‘get’ what I do. Sometimes I’m awed by the amazing people I’ve met online and I so look forward to pleasant future experiences.
The Flori Roberts giveaway winner is Mwende M. I’ve sent her an email to claim her prize. If she doesn’t in 5 days, I’ll randomly pick another winner. Thank you all so much for trying out. It would have been nice to be able to give everyone something but sadly, it doesn’t work that way
One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to have a 6 pack (or at least a 4-pack) by my birthday (August 21st) and I’ve failed-miserably. LOL. I still have a pooch that’s too comfortable to go anywhere. Don’t get me wrong, I like my body-I’m healthy strong and able, but I like the challenge of pushing your body and working hard to look however you want. I want to look good naked, I want to look at my body and feel proud of the results I worked for. But I have a kitchen problem!! You know how people have either a sweet tooth or a savory one? Me, I have both. I live for sweets, chips, cake and bacon. My 2-a week cheat meals turn into 2, then 3, then 4 cheat days. Not anymore though, starting September. My twin Lisa and I have decided to track each others progress by sending pics of each of our meals. I’ve also saved up to pay a trainer starting September 1st, through the month and I plan to thoroughly document my progress. Pray for me y’all!
Enough ranting for the day. Drop your comments, questions, encouragement, and whatever else, below. Enjoy the post
