Christmas Inspired Makeup Look



Hey guys!! How was your weekend?? Mine was pretty cool. On Saturday, I went for a birthday dinner and on Sunday I just rested. I was really exhausted throughout last week so I was really looking forward to the weekend. As I'm typing this though, it's Sunday night and I'm already looking forward to next weekend :'(. 

I decided to do a Christmas inspired makeup look because, even though no one is really acting like it, Christmas Day is just 2 weeks away. I've always loved Christmas especially when I was much younger because everyone just seemed so happy and relaxed around that time. I also loved putting up the Christmas tree and getting Christmas presents every year. I still do ;).

For this look, it had to be green and red to go with the Christmas theme I was going for. I have this NYX glitter that I got last month and I was really excited to try it out. 

I also wanted to use my Sisi Lade lashes because I wanted to look more "doll like" than natural for this look. I love this glitter and I think I've definitely been leaning more towards bright, sparkly eye looks lately. I have some other glitters from NYX that I'm going to try out in the coming weeks and I'll definitely put up posts of all of them :).

Makeup Post: Pink Cut Crease


Hey people!! It's a new month and it's the last month of the year. How did you do with your resolutions for 2017? Even without checking my list I know I didn't do too great. Maybe next year I'll get an app for that lool :(.

How was your long weekend? Mine was pretty good. I didn't do anything extraordinary but I was really happy to have the extra day off. My week was quite stressful so it was really needed. 

On Friday, I decided to try out a makeup look that's a bit different from what I'm used to. I recently learnt how to do a cut crease even though I still have a lot of practise to do. I'm actually a bit late to the cut crease party because it became popular a few years ago. I didn't really like it before, but suddenly I've become obsessed.

For this look, I wasn't sure what I was going for but I knew I wanted a little blue in it. I also wanted to try out my Morphe 35B palette which I got about a month ago. 

After throwing a few colours together this was how it came out. 





I really love how bright it came out. I'm not sure I would wear it out on a normal day though.

I'm Back!! Again!!!



Hey guys!! How have you been?? This year is really almost over and I'd like to say it went by really fast, but the first half of the year was quite slow for me.

I was working somewhere I really hated and I just felt stuck. Blogging makes me happy but it was the last thing on my mind. I moved somewhere better 4 months ago and things are better now but I just didn't know how to get back into it. I mean, I haven't blogged in 6 months and even before my last posts, I hadn't blogged in a while.

Anyway, I'm back again! For the like 100th time. Thanks to those of you who still visit my blog and my friends who ask about my blog. You guys are awesome :*

A few months ago, I decided to get back into makeup. I stopped when I started working last year but I'm back on it now :D.

For this look, I just wanted to try out the new lashes I got from Sisi Lade lashes. They're not what I'm used to because they're quite long and full but I wanted to give it a try.




I liked how they turned out and they were quite easy to apply. I say this because, I'm really not the best at applying lashes and some lashes are harder to use than others but this was pretty easy.

I'll do another post on the products I used for this look soon.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful week guys!

Product Review: Creme of Nature Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme



Hey people!! How are you and how was your long weekend? Mine was pretty awesome. I mostly hung out with friends and just rested.

I got this Creme of Nature leave in conditioner a few months ago when I was trying out new leave in conditioners. I was looking for a conditioner with no coconut oil and as little proteins as possible. 

I remember my sister used the argan oil butter milk last year and she really liked it. I didn't want to use that because it had coconut oil in it but I decided to give the "pudding perfection" a chance since it had no coconut oil.

INGREDIENTS

Aqua (Water) (Eau), Dimethicone, Ceteareth-20, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Glycereth-26, Parfum (Fragrance), Cetearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Glyceryl Stearate, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Panthenol, PEG-40 Stearate, Disodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Triethanolamine, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylisothiazolinone, CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 16035 (Red 40)


DIRECTIONS 

Scoop a liberal amount into your hand and smooth downward on small sections of damp hair using fingertips. Then twist, shingle, coil or wash and go. Do not rinse. Air dry or diffuse. For curl elongation, use a blow dryer with a nozzle attachment on fully dried hair and direct heat from roots to mid-shaft.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It feels creamy and is a bit thick. It also smells really floral and a bit like caramel. I really like how it smells. 


HOW I USE IT 

I use it after deep conditioning and co-washing my hair to moisturise. I use a mixture of the conditioner and glycerine, and then use castor oil or shea butter to seal. 

The first few times I used it, I really liked it. It wasn't as great as my beloved Kinky Curly Knot Today but it was moisturising and it was the best I had tried this year.

Unfortunately, I noticed the last 2 times I used it, my hair was really flaking after. It's possible that it was because my hair was more on the wet side than dry the last few times I used it. At the same time, I felt like maybe it just wasn't working that well for my hair anymore so I went back to my kinky curly knot today and the difference was clear.

From other reviews I've read, mixing it with other products can cause it to flake. The problem is, using it alone won't keep my hair moisturised. 

I like this product and it's quite moisturising. It was also not too expensive at N3,000 especially since the prices of everything have practically doubled this year. 

I would recommend it because it's actually moisturising  and not too expensive. I'll just advise that you don't mix it with too many products.

Have you tried this leave-in conditioner? What was your experience with it?

Vestar Coffee



Hey guys!! How are you?? Tomorrow is Friday yayy!! I'm really looking forward to the long weekend, I think I've had enough of this week.

A few days ago, I went to this new cafe that opened 2 weeks ago with my friend and I got some really cute pictures of the place.



I like how cosy it is and I like how the furniture in every corner is very different.





They also have a seating area outside which is really nice but the weather was too hot for that so I chilled in their AC.





I got a cinnamon croissant and an iced caramel macchiato. I asked them to make mine with soy milk so if you're also lactose intolerant you have that option.


The cinnamon croissant was quite good but I really loved my macchiato. My friend also got the iced caramel macchiato and they made hers with dairy milk and whipped cream.


Vestar Coffee is at 26a Oju Olobun Close, Victoria Island and apart from weekends, they open on weekdays from 6am to 7pm. I'll definitely pass through on my way to work when I can. The service was really good and I'd love to try their other stuff.

Have lovely day!

She loved the look and so did I :D

Event: GT Food & Drink Fair


Hey guys!! How have you been and how was your weekend? Mine was awesome. My cousin's wedding was on Saturday so it was great but it was also tiring at the same time. I rested today though but now I'm just sad today is Monday again lol :(

2 weeks ago, GT Bank organised the GT Bank Food & Drink Fair. They had one last year but I didn't go for that because I was being a bit anti social and I just wasn't interested. This year though, I decided to check it out and I was quite excited about going for it. 

It was a 2-day event and it was on a Sunday and Monday (Worker's day). I went on Monday because Sunday was my cousin's introduction. I was happy I didn't go on the first day because I heard the event was really packed on the first day. There were also a lot of people on the 2nd day but apparently it wasn't as bad as the first day.







This picture was taken when I first got there and hadn't started walking through crowds of people. I really wonder what I was trying to say.



I was happy Hans & Rene was there. Look at that cute cone wall they made. It took a while before I could get my gelato because of the huge crowd in front of their stand butI eventually got it :D








I actually only ended up eating one thing. You would think that with the wide variety of food there, I would have been able to eat to my heart's content but there were just too many queues and I got tired. After walking around I eventually got wings and fries from the Urban Fusion truck. The wings and fries were reallyy yummy.


I didn't go for any of the masterclasses because I was just there to eat. Once I walked around a few times and finally got food, I went home.


Thanks for reading and have a lovely week!
