Since I started my natural hair journey, I’ve never really been the one to take supplements or vitamins of any sort for hair growth. I am pro natural, from-inside-Out growth…..and regardless of using hair oils or products I still believe in clean eating and a healthy lifestyle. However, recently I have been doing some research on the science of hair and the right nutrients required for

IMG_3797 copyHello people,

Hope you’re doing great, I just realised that I’m 2 years, a month and a week natural today, and an update is only right. I get a lot of questions about my hair, its care and my regimen. In the past, I have tried to make videos, write posts and answer questions via my social media accounts, But I guess when it comes to hair, we enthusiasts always want to know more. Hence this post.

MY NATURAL HAIR TIME LINE (2months post Big chop till date-2years Natural)

IMG_7831 copy

I would try to divide this post into sections and answer all questions I have gotten over time. All points/answers are solely what has worked for me, I am not an expert, take all with discretion.

1. WHY NATURAL?: I have cut my hair thrice before this, just for style purposes i.e the ‘Anita baker’ kind of hair cut, but it never lasts. The back grew back and I to re-trim it almost every 2-3 months. On the last occasion, I just decided to take it all off. My friend Biola was actually the one who ‘enticed’ me with the natural hair movement. I first wanted to keep it short, i.e like month 2 as seen above, but when it started growing out, I quite

It’s just Tuesday but this week has been good. Page views have been increasing and better response from readers via shares, tweets, emails and comments. I was featured yesterday on , a life style blog. The editor Ibukun Akinnawo, shared a post on her 6 favorite Nigerian blogs and I was listed. It felt good as I saw it shortly after waking up. It kickstarted my day. Here’s what she had to say.

It’s another post on 20 Lessons of my 20’s, Thank you so much for the amazing comments, Facebook shares, tweets and emails on the last segment! I’m ever grateful, If you missed it read HERE.

20 Lessons of my 20’s discusses various things I’ve learnt and I’m still learning as a young woman. Today’s discussion is one quite dear to me and ‘happenings’ this week inspired this topic as lesson number 2.

The title Privileges and sentiments connotes, those that have/experience good things in their lives and the notion that you should be ‘humble’ A.K.A apologetic about those blessings. Cases in which sentiment has overruled reality and the word humble has been taken out of context.

All ‘lessons’ are solely a result of my personal experiences, but I do hope they are valuable and worth sharing to someone else. Do have an open mind whilst reading….

1. HAVE WHAT YOU WANT: Growing up I remember watching those Nollywood dramas that taught you when/if anything good happens, you shouldn’t share/tell anyone or else misfortune would come upon you……It’s funny how this cultural analogy has become the behavioural construct of most individuals when it comes to gratitude or expressing opinions about other people’s lives. This past year, I’ve learnt that people have the right to be who they are and want whatever they desire regardless of my sentiment, upbringing or interests.

I had a conversation with someone the other day and I was telling her how I really would enjoy having the finer things in life i.e luxury. And If I could afford the jet set life, I would most likely indulge. She had this condescending response with the need to remind me how charity and philanthropy should be more important. I smiled because I couldn’t remember admitting to her that luxury was of utmost importance or charity was of less importance to me. I told her Giving, respect, morals, charity, and goodworks amongst others are values embedded in me that no amount of wealth can take away. Also I believe that discussing the philanthropic gestures I do/intend to do in the future doesn’t validate me as a good person, neither does not-talking about it make me less humane or charitable.

But I then realised that this is where the cultural/non-cultural sentiment comes in. If one posts images or shares articles on charity works e.g visit to orphanages, community service or make public donations, they are tagged as humble/generous, or perceived as having a sense of purpose because they are ‘helping’ others. While if another looks nice/visits nice places and posts pictures, they are also often tagged as ‘show-offs’. In reality what’s the difference between the two scenarios? but you be the judge.

I’m pro good works, but I often ask why people feel those who like/have the finer things in life are tagged Wasteful/proud/vain/flamboyant? I personally feel people have the right to spend their resources on what they want, either to give it away or spend it on themselves -it’s a matter of choice.

However, it’s nice to give some, spend some and save some, but the truth is other people’s fund management is really not your business or mine. In fact, I think the greater problem lies with those who are quick to express such opinions as regards who is what and why.

Many preachers in Nigeria today face this stigma, one can’t have a fleet of cars or landed properties abroad, without being discussed in tabloids as fake or flamboyant. I am one christian that believes that our greatest goal is not just to make heaven but also to have dominion while fulfilling purpose on earth. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having good things, Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 makes this sink.

This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labour under the sun during the few days of life God has given them – for this is their lot. Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil – this is a gift of God. They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart” NIV

Hence, do not entertain those who sugar coat their lack of discretion/spite/envy with sentiments.

2. THE THIN LINE: As with anything there’s always a thin line, and in this case it’s between gratitude, self-confidence and sheer pride. Gratitude is simply being appreciative or thankful, self-confidence is a healthy esteem. Now how does one merge being thankful and self-confident without coming off as proud/vain/self obsessed/arrogant. It’s not so simple because you really have no control over what others decide to think. Even Jesus who came as the messiah was called a blasphemer of precepts………

Humility is acknowledging that you are not self-sufficient and more scriptural; its living with the understanding that you are purely a product of grace, subject to the will of God. I observed that the main reason why people are quick to tag others as proud/vain/self obsessed/arrogant is either because the accused really shows those fruits or the pointing finger is plainly spiteful . However, I got some instructions from my life manual on principles of living which have helped me to create a balance either when acquiring things, marketing my strengths or even publicly sharing comments/moments.

a. Do not be empty with/without vanity: I have said in the first point that it’s ok to have vanity(cars, houses, clothes etc; all is vanity) However, I believe there is more to life than material possessions. Now ask yourself what virtues you possess if you lose all your ‘material blessings’? Virtue is “moral excellence” and “goodness”. Ecclesiastes 5:15 explains this point well;

Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart.They take nothing from their toil”.

As a believer you should actually invest more heavily on your soul/inner man because everything vain depreciates, see 2 Corinthians 4:16.

Further more, be of substance without possessions, let your appraisal be that which radiates God’s glory and precepts. A heart that speaks louder than acquisitions. i.e. in more practical terms, Strive forshe has integrity alongside She has nice clothes”. In totality, have a full dose of the fruits of the spirit: Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control while having ‘dominion’ on earth.

b. Add Value: I think this is my best phrase. I learnt it from my dad, he says it to me at the slightest opportunity, If I say I’m going out he’d say “what value is where you are going to adding to you presently” I’d laugh at what I considered paranoia. But in reflection I agree with him. When doing absolutely everything, strive to ensure it has a positive impact, either to you or your immediate environment(social responsibility). Avoid doing things for doing sake, avoid being lukewarm. I learnt recently from @adaezeDiana that “In All I do, It’s either I’m being pulled closer to God or farther from him”. Sounds daunting but its true. You may say how does something trivial affect my walk with God e.g a thought, a visit or even an Instagram picture……. but aren’t we accountable for ALL actions of that day? One of my favourite scriptures buttresses this: 1 Corinthians 10:23 “We are free to do all things, but there are things that are not wise to do. We are free to do all things, but not all things are edifying”

c. Mind your business: Tomilola Escada would probably resonate with me on this, we had a discussion a while ago about sharing opinions on others, and she shared with me a scenario where the Holyspirit asked her if the matter was really her business, and I laughed so hard. But then again it’s so true, apt and real. We all say ‘mind your business’, but do we really do? Someone does something you begin to ask yourself/friends why, you begin to analyse the lives of others either mentally or with buddies. I’ve been guilty of this in the past and I have refuted such behaviour. Meddling in the lives of others brings about idleness, gossiping, hate, discord, jealousy and unfruitfulness amongst other vices. There are also many scriptures on this but l would share just two. Proverbs 10:9 When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise. Ecclesiastes 5:2 Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.

In essence what have I been on about? …Never apologize for the good things in your life, they may not necessarily be privileges but they are sure blessings! Be grateful, love others, serve and enjoy your life.

And I pray for good fortune in everything you do, and for your good health, that your everyday affairs prosper, as well as your soul_ 3 John 1:2

That’s all for today, 18 more to go. I hope to one day publish these writings into a book/compilation, but until then it’s all for you my blog readers!

Have a fruitful week ahead!

[caption id="attachment_4494" align="aligncenter" width="660" class=" "]Maybelline Matte Maker Mattifying Powder [20 Nude Beige] - kurze Review beauty blog mattes puder neu new august 2014 Photocredit:[/caption]
So I just incorporated highlighting/contouring into my makeup routine, I shared that in this Tutorial, I got a few questions about the highlighting powder I used, so I thought to do this post.
Most makeup gurus I follow often use the famous “Ben Nye banana/Topaz powder” but for some reason I never got to jump on the bandwagon. Anytime I plan to buy, it’s either they don’t have my preferred shade or I just can’t find a reliable U.K retailer. So I opted for basically any oil controlling powder I found.
I went to the Tesco in my area to buy groceries the other day and took a stroll to the makeup aisle, they had quite a range of products but not powders for dark skinned ladies like me. However, I saw this powder above and I was interested in the “mattefying” effect it claimed to have (Ad’s work). All the shades they had were for lighter skin to be honest, but since I was using it for ‘highlighting’ I wasn’t really fazed. I opted for the darkest-pale shade in the range i.e Sun Beige.
Slide4Product Description
Matte Maker all-day powder, Maybelline’s face powder with millions of powerful mattifying particles! Instantly absorbs oil and blends seamlessly with your skins tone and texture, for a perfectly flawless matte finish.
Talc, Paraffinum Liquidum/ Mineral Oil/ Magnesium Stearate, Caprylyl Glycol.
[+/- May Contain: Cl 77492 / Titanium dioxide/ Cl 77491, Cl 77492, Cl 77499, Iron Oxides


Packaging: It comes in a simple transparent package as seen above, however I never got to open it. The case ought to be twisted and opened but I just couldn’t open it. I googled ‘maybelline new matte maker can’t open’ to be sure I wasn’t lazy or crazy and I got a host of similar cases. Many users complained they couldn’t get their cases open. Eventually I had to use a knife to lift the edges which I ended up breaking the entire compact powder. I had to place it in another container to avoid stains everywhere. IMG_1147 IMG_7105Cost: £3.99 at most outlets.

Application: I used it underneath my eyes to set the highlight concealer. Since it had broken I had to use my brush to control the powder particles, The powder applies easily and absorbs into your skin almost immediately. The sun beige reminds me of Ailin powder just without the talc scent or saturation (shout out to everyone who used that product, it was the bomb lol).

Aftermath: It looked good on my face and didn’t create any white cast in photos. The “matte maker” controlled oil for about 3-4 hours maximum and I needed to blot my face. So nothing out of the blues. I also used it to church yesterday where I danced and walked around quite a bit. On getting home, my makeup was still intact but could have used a dab/blot. (watch my application in this foundation tutorial)
Overview: Good product, very affordable, Horrid packaging. I rate it 6/10. I would continue using it till I find a better substitute if necessary.
I hope this review was helpful, Do let me know what highlight powders you use and your review on it! would love to know..

Happy sunday and happy new month, Hope all is well with you and your week was great! Today was a wonderful day as it was thanksgiving sunday in my church. I have so much to be grateful for, but all my testimonies would be shared in due time. We’re in November and It’s just about 60/58days to the new year….I joined this praise challenge in which till the end of the year you praise God everyday for about an hour. In this challenge You ask God for nothing but stay giving thanks. It’s for those who are willing to exercise faith and watch God be God. so for example if you’re trusting God for his will/a new car/a spouse/job promotion, instead of asking you simply give thanks about it. i.e you say “I thank you God for your will in my life/ my new car” .

I’m a strong faith worker and I truly believe in the power of confessions and thanksgiving. Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see(Hebrews 11:1). I hope many people are willing to embark on this 60day challenge with me and I’m hopeful for amazing testimonies from us all by his grace!

On a lighter note! Here’s what I wore to church today!
