Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Hello Beauties,

How you doing? It’s been on mind to write this post for the longest time, so glad I finally got around to it. This post is about a brand that crept into my life and amazed me some months ago. It’s drugstrore brand, Garnier. I don’t know how familiar most of you are with this brand, because I had no idea the brand even existed till December 2016, but I have been pleasantly surprised with most of the products I have purchased from the brand, and I decided to share with you guys, so here it goes..

Surviving Finals week

Say this prayer before your exams,

IMG_1408

Hey guyys, happy finals week! Yes, happy finals week because we are almost done with this semester and you know what that means? Yupp, you guessed it, summer is almost here. I didn’t think I was going to post this week, but I got inspired to write this post, and who am I to ignore?

The stress of finals week almost got to me, but with God by my side, I quickly dumped the stress for inner peace and assurance. This post isn’t a long one, it is just one to motivate you against the stress of finals week. You are not like everyone else who should be stressing out about exams, you have already conquered these exams because of your Daddy in heaven. These 3 things are what you should live by this week and you will be fine (also, watch the videos). Continue reading “Surviving Finals week”

Guard your heart! – By Jess

Hey Guys! I’m back! 🙂

IMG_1383

I’m Jess, a friend of Oyinlola. I do a guest post on the blog once in awhile. You can read my first blog post here. You might have seen the title of this blog entry, and concluded that it had something to do with love or maybe relationships. Sorry to disappoint, it doesn’t!

Now that you know I’m no relationship expert, let’s talk about your heart.

Biology tells us that the heart is an organ in the body that helps circulate blood; it pumps the blood, moves it all around, and does a lot of bio-stuff. But an important thing about the heart, is the fact that once it ceases to function, a person can no longer stay alive (you probably already know this). And while this heart is very important, there is another heart that’s of a greater importance. The Intangible Heart. This heart is that part of us where our emotions and desires dwell. It is composed of our mind, our will, our conscience and our emotion. Our very lives emanate from the heart. We lead, live, relate, confront, instruct, manage, love, and problem solve from the heart.

Updated Review of the Milk of Magnesia

Hi beautiful,

This is a concise post, mainly to update you on my thoughts about the use of Milk of Magnesia as a face primer. I remember raving about this product in my Must have makeup products, but my thoughts have changed since then. Don’t get me wrong, this product is still the best at masking oiliness and keeping your makeup on all day.  My biggest fear was that this would cause me to break out or have adverse effect on my skin like some reviews said, but this was not the case.

This is how the product looks when you first apply it to your face, it leaves a white cast that I let dry before applying foundation. Continue reading “Updated Review of the Milk of Magnesia”

Style your Dashiki | Two ways

Style your Dashiki | Two ways

Hi everyone, welcome back to another style post. It’s been long since I did one of these (let’s hope I remember how). I was inspired by Jennifer Amani when I saw a dashiki look on her Instagram some days ago. I got this vibrant green dashiki from Perade (my favourite African store) and you can purchase yours via this link or through their Instagram.

For my first style, I paired my green dashiki with a pair of leggings and black flats. Nothing fancy, just a causal look that was worn to class. The picture was taken a year ago, as you can see I was looking like a baby girl.

My Love Hate Relationship with Spring

IMG_3257

It’s Spring time! Yes, it’s time to ditch those bulky winter accessories and come alive, and I know I’m not alone in my feelings. Even though it hasn’t felt much like spring in Philadelphia, I walked out of my dorm on Monday and I almost shed tears of joy because the weather felt so good. That feeling  inspired me to dress cute all week and write this post. Continue reading “My Love Hate Relationship with Spring”

Huge Ulta Haul| Mini Review

Hi guys, happy weekend! I was so anxious all week, anxious for the weekend (because the week was too darn stressful) and for my upcoming posts (they promise to be exciting). Without further ado, let’s get into this mini haul, all from Ulta Beauty.

Remember when I reviewed different mascaras in my recent review and said if I had to buy any, it would be the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.Well, I stayed true to my word and bought it. Read the  review to find out why.

Next thing I got is this Mario Badescu Grab and Go kit. It contains a facial spray for hydration and glowy skin, and a drying lotion that claims to dry out pimples instantly. I used the facial spray all week, and I fell in love. My skin feels hydrated, not oily in the mornings when I use it. I can’t tell you much about the drying lotion yet, but I’ll keep you updated.

Lifestyle not Religion

Best believe me when I tell you I’ve been struggling to write this post since January, the procrastination has been real. I got around to writing it this morning, but it didn’t get saved and I lost it. Yayy! On a serious note, it’s taken me this long to write because gathering my thoughts has been a struggle. I’m praying this post comes together in the end and I get my message across to you perfectly.

In my last post, I talked about Shows you shouldn’t bother watching. In this post however, I’ll be talking about people that annoy me, no hate cause love ti take over you know, just things I’ll prefer people not do. I get annoyed by religious people, you know those people who follow religious rules and condemn those who don’t. Since I’m christian, I can only speak from the christian perspective but I hope everyone can relate. If you know the bible, you know it says that “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23.
