Why Anti-Aging Procedures Are Necessary
You may feel like you have cared for your skin properly on a daily basis and have nothing to show for it. But if that is the case you probably have slowed down the development of your skin issues. The problem is that your skin is on the outside of your body, which means it is subjected to both external and internal challenges. Everything from whether or not you smoke to what you eat, the products you apply to your skin, or your exposure to chemicals or weather can influence how fast your skin ages. Read More

I’ve always been a fan of drugstore makeup just that all the ones (foundations) I’ve tried just never worked well for me in Nigeria, from revlon to L’Oréal they all just melted off in the scorching sun (who can relate😞).
So I stuck with high-end (Lancôme, MAC, Black up) and my pocket paid the price.
Since I moved to where its much colder, I decided to try drugstore again.
I opted for the Maybelline Fit me foundations and concealers . I bought them from superdrug and they cost £6.99 and £5.99 respectively.
Foundation: (Approx ₦3,600) I got the shade 350 caramel and 356 warm coconut. My actual shade is somewhere in between so I mix both.
Texture & Finish : The foundation is light weight and Matte.
Coverage: It claims it’s medium-full coverage but I found it’s no where near FULL coverage (to me), certainly buildable but I like straight to the point coverage or maybe I’m just used to the Marykay/Blackopal/MAC kind of thick coverage.
Verdict: Fair price, a bit too cool toned for me, buildable and light weight which is nice. I rate it 6 out of 10.
The concealers: £5.99 each (approx ₦3,100)
Texture and finish: Rich, covers very well, and doesn’t crease. I got them in the shade 45,50,55.
Verdict: Fair price, wand applicator is great, applies smoothly, wide colour range and excellent quality. I rate it a 9/10.
Would I recommend? Absolutely. ……

This “hollywood style” dresser has been a hit in recent years……from makeup studios to salons and even bedrooms! Every one wants one. It’s such a great addition to any personal space.
It specifically provides lighting when getting dressed and serves as a good focal point for decor.
I mentioned in my last post that we recently moved house and I’ve been decorating.
We converted one of the rooms to my office/vanity room. There, I have my dresser, office desk, rail, documents, printer, filming equipment, shoes and basically 90% of all my belongings.
I created a wish list on amazon on the things I wanted for the room and surprisingly 4 of my awesome friends decided to pick up the tab as a wedding present! Shout out to Yejide, Ibidun, Consolata, and Vanessa B!
Vanessa purchased the Chende vanity hollywood style lighting kit for me. I was so happy when she sent me the order details, I couldn’t wait to set it up.
I always wanted the ready-made store bought Read More
