What I Wore To Girls’ Night Out


I recently went to girls' night out with Solachi, Funmie, Ibukun, and Tim, but that's not the girls' night out I'm talking about. I had another girls' night out with another group of girls. This one was with my work friends, Lisa, Tasha, Jemela, and Jennifer. Coincidentally, we had it at TGIF, too. No, I didn't pick the venue. As a matter of fact, it's mere coincidence that I have gone to TGIF twice in such short time. It happened on Saturday. We talked about how most of us are pretty much Continue Reading

Gucci Now Has A Cosmetic Line

Gucci Luxurious Moisture Rich Lipstick-in Tiger Lily

Yup. Gucci has fallen in line and now has a cosmetics line that just launched this month. I personally do not currently own any Gucci item. I think I've had a perfume in the past, but I can't say for sure. Anyway, they have makeup now. I haven't seen the makeup in person, but I went through their eye shadows and lipsticks, and I picked out my favorite colors. By the way, I'm currently having a thing with lipsticks. I used to be a lip gloss girl, but oh, how the tides have turned. The lipstick Continue Reading

Thanks To My Hair, Chinedu Wants My Number


Remember when I went to Faith's wedding? Of course, you remember, the post went up only yesterday. Thank you for the compliments on the hair. I have received so many compliments on and offline. Just yesterday, someone said to me, "Oh, you finally decided to wear your hair down, it's beautiful." She thought it was my natural hair, and I just couldn't break her heart by telling her the truth. Ha! Okay, so my hair was done via crochet braiding, and it was done by my sister-in-law, Nyambe. She's Continue Reading

What I Wore To Faith’s Wedding


This past weekend, I attended Faith's wedding. Faith is a friend that I met in church some years ago, and she's just really sweet. I like her a lot cause my spirit agrees with her. I don't know how else to describe it, but sometimes you meet people and your spirit likes them, too. Faith is one of those people. I think we have an older sister-younger sister understanding, too. Anyway, Faith got married to her love, and Igwe and I were there to witness it. We missed the ceremony, but we made the Continue Reading

Ladies, How Do You Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair?

Ideal Image

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. I'll always remember when I first started getting rid of the hair on my legs and my mom and aunt were acting like I was taking my organs out of my body. They insisted that leaving the hair was natural beauty, and I obviously thought differently. Coming from my mom, it was funny because the woman is practically hairless, so it was easy for her to say that. My aunt, on the other hand, was truly Continue Reading

Ladies, I Have Discovered A GLOWING Beauty Secret!


Ladies, you know that beauty products make me weak in the knees. I haven't been to a beauty store for a while, and it's not because I don't want to go. No, it's because I DO want to go, but I am afraid of the kind of financial damage I will do to my pocket when I get there. But guess who came a-knocking on my door? Conair!!! I tell you, one day, this blog will have me doing a sleep over at the Obama's. So Conair is currently running a campaign called, Ready, Set, Glow. And the whole point Continue Reading

My Entire Thoughts On Boycotting Target

Altuzarra For Target (Image via Target)

I was online today doing some browsing when I saw a hashtag #BoycottingTarget and I had to find out why. So apparently, designer Altuzarra is collaborating with Target to release some pieces, but none of them go past a size 16. Therefore, the plus-size community is furious, reasonably. Disclaimer: I don't like the word plus-size, but I'm using it here because that's what they use. Maybe it's because I'm not in the fashion industry, but I tend to assume that not all brands will come in all Continue Reading

Shoe Crush: Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump

Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump - Black & Blue

My Sweet Potatoes, these shoes have been chasing me in my dreams. I dream of owning them. I dream of wearing them. I have a pair of black panty hose that in my head will go perfectly with a short skater dress or skirt ... and of course these pumps. I want them in black and in blue. Oh, my good Lord, I want them BADLY. But they cost $215. Each. If you are reading this post right now, please know that this is a sign from the good God Almighty that you should buy me one (or both) of these shoes. Continue Reading

Hello MAC Red, Nice To Finally Meet You


This may sound weird, I know, but this MAC Red lipstick is my very first red lipstick. Ever. More than that, I don't even wear lipstick a lot. Apart from this MAC Red lipstick, I own only 4 other lipsticks, and 3 of them came as free gifts from Lancome. But I had been reading a lot of beauty blogs and a lot of these beauty bloggers kept talking about the MAC Ruby Woo. So I went to MAC with the intention of buying the Ruby Woo lipstick. When I got there, however, I realized that the Ruby Woo Continue Reading

About Last Weekend: Lancôme Jazzed Me Again

With flash and without flash

Back in 2008, Lancôme was doing a free makeup session by "Tommy," and I went because it was free. I had no intention to buy anything, but nothing wrong with getting made up for free. That was how I went there and loved Lancôme so much that I ended up using it. It's been 6 years, and I have never gone back [Read that post here]. Not only have I not left Lancôme, I have actually tried to leave (for no reason) by finding something else that works just as good. I got samples from a bunch of brands, Continue Reading
