5 MINUTE MAKEUP CHALLENGE WITH SISI YEMMIE!

IMG_4759Hello!

This collaboration was long overdue, as soon as I had free time I went to see my lovely Sisi Yemmie! If you don’t know her then you’re probably not really into the Nigerian Blogosphere, I had an uber swell time at hers. Her baby Tito was absolutely in love with me *winks*.

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 20.50.08

I’ve mentioned Sisi many times on my blog, Infact I met her through people dropping messages on my blog saying that I had a twin so I went to snoop! so now we are best friends lol Just joking. We had a swell time. Filmed two videos, chatted plenty and made periscope videos together.

Today I’d be sharing one of the videos with you and the other (Blogging in Nigeria) in a subsequent one.

Make sure you check out sisi at sisiyemmie.com! she’s awesome

This video is the 5minute makeup challenge where we had to do our makeup from start to finish in 5minutes. Do watch and tell me what you think. I went for a natural look while sisi went for a glam one. It was so much fun!

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER: OOTD

IMG_4137Hello!

I’m just here waiting in my friend’s house because I refuse to face the traffic towards my home LOL……I really can’t wait for the weekend, I need to unwind. Today I’m wearing pants I bought earlier this year from DebraGrace boutique(Yaba, Lagos) .

This morning I was thinking of the perfect top to wear with it and I remembered this lace mini dress I have from Asos. So I opted for a monochrome look. I decided to fold the dress in as a top and it worked. I matched it with my gold strap Mules and a Brown bag.

YAY! THREE YEARS NATURAL!

img_3561

Whoa! How time flies! I remember my two years anniversary I shared HERE It’s so surreal seeing how growth occurs. I shared a time line on my Instagram yesterday and here it is below! From 2012 when I did the big chop till now.

[caption id="attachment_6761" align="alignnone" width="660"]IMG_3473 A living proof that hair grows with patience!! 🎉🎊🎉🎉🎉HAPPY 3 YEARS NATURAL TO ME! I went to the barber’s shop on October 6th 2012 to cut off all my hair. My parents hated it lol my brothers laughed at me. But I rocked every darn stage with confidence, even though deep down I was a bit uncertain if this choice was for me. I coloured it, Jerry-curled it and did the absolute most….Even with my then sparse edges 😀. But I Inspired my self with natural hair pages, stories and other people on the journey. Here we are 36months after! Better length, texture and of course better brows hehehe🙈. I’m happy and don’t regret the decision to go natural even though it’s a more expensive choice in all honesty. Cheers to another three years to come. 🎉🎊🎊🎉 P.s I’d be accepting freebies, goodie bags and endorsements to celebrate this small but worthy mile stone 🙊🙈💃🏿💃🏽 mail me at lynnjaphet@gmail.com I love you 💜#ItsJustHair#NaturalHairJourney @naijanaturals[/caption]

I filmed a video yesterday about a few tips I’ve learnt so far, It should be up later tonight, I get so many questions about this natural hair journey and I try to answer as honest as possible. I even have an entire column on my blog just for hair bants, see HERE.

But for the sake of those who don’t like scrolling through posts, I’ve decided to make this blog post interactive. If you have any question or comment about the natural hair journey please feel free to ask below, I’d be dedicating the rest of the day to answering questions. If you can’t seem to comment, tweet at me @LLynn_J or on instagram @Lynnjaphet I’d certainly respond.

I had the intention of typing a long post but I changed my mind. The ball is in your court! so Ask and I shall revert ASAP.

Hurray to me!

Cheers to the next phase of the journey!
