DIY STRETCH MARKS REMOVER

March 23, 2017

Hello beauties, normally I'm supposed to post Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays but I had to break the rules for this one. so I was going through a fitness and lifestyle group: healthy yummy mummies and she shared this tip. So I'm hoping iy works and decided to share with you all. So it's like we are doing it together.


So first of all, you need

1/4 cup of coconut oil
1 tbsp aloe vera gel
1tbsp vitamin e oil
A glass botlle. 
I recycled my coconut oil bottle for this

FYI: aloe vera gel has a horrible smell so mind how you use it.
If you have castor oil please add a tea spoon but the only con is that it grows hair so your body hair might grow
 
So mix all these together and and apply on the affected area. 

I hope this works for us. Please don't forget to share, comment and subscribe for more of this  and till my next diy...
XOXO

JEWELLRY HAUL: SEE WHAT I GOT

March 22, 2017

Hello beauties, so today I decided to do a jewelry haul. It was actually supposed to be a video but it didn't work out so why not do it here.  It's the first time I'm calling it a haul.  Yes I used to call it buys like MY NOVEMBER CHEAP BUYS but now I'm tushing up and hauling up. So these jewelries are from Wuse market. Read what I wrote about 6 TYPES OF PEOPLE YOU WILL FIND IN WUSE MARKET, ABUJA And I'll say they are very cheap and gorgeous.
 
So this is a stud which i got for 200 naira. this is like an everyday earring, makes your look cool, simple and young.  

So this is my favorite and you won't believe i got this for 400 naira, it's a tear drop earring and can be worn for weddings, anniversaries, dinners etc you get the gist. 
I don't know what to call this one but it stone studded and gorgeous. This can be worn as a bride, a guest and for events like anniversaries, dinners etc. 
So this choker is very random but yet fabulous. the choker can be worn with a casual dressing and also when you want to glam up. So win win and it's very cheap 500 naira only
The wrist watch, which i got for 1000 naira. the wrist watch is a knock off but i bought it so i can have a mix. i normally wear more expensive ones but realised i sometime even wear these expensive ones to pick jina up or to the market.  


So this one is also one of my favorite, only because I love this type of earrings and when it is filled with sparkles. Then it's amazing. I got this for about 700 naira.( not sure of the price) and it's pretty affordable for how it looks. 


Which was your favortie jewellry?
Do you buy jewelries from Wuse market, Abuja.?

I hope you enjoyed my first official haul and I hope you also go check out Wuse market. There are so many affordable and beautiful things you can buy there. Don't forget to subscribe, share and comment. I love you for reading and till my next post...XOXO




9 TYPES OF WEDDING GUESTS IN A TYPICAL NIGERIAN WEDDING

March 19, 2017

So I went for a wedding solo as in no hubby, no pikins, no nothing. just me cruising in my
car and feeling like one high-class babe. The event was for an old time classmate and I was invited by my close friend Portia. so I did my makeup, wore my beautiful blue dress made my me...(so holla for yours, very affordable) and my journey to Gwarinpa started. I got to the church and waited a while for the bride to arrive and after all the church lovingintis. we all headed for the reception. Immediately I got into the hall, I started noticing some kind shady moves and looks and faces here and there and so I decided to share with you guys.  Mean while feed your eyes with some pics from the event and let me know what you think. 
  

1.The Money Sprayer: 
Have you ever been to a wedding when that one guy/lady/man/woman just wants to show off, Asin they carry cartons of money and from the door, they start spraying and the look on their face is just epic like they are trying to make a point. So this wedding I went for the money was so near me I felt like doing shoki to pick some. 

2.The Dancer: 
OMG, see who is talking...I'm that girl please head over to my INSTAGRAM page to see my moves. The way I was dancing and having a good time, you would think it was my wedding.

3.The Food monger: 
We were so hungry on our table that we finished our small chops before they said Jack Robinson. the hunger was not here and i was surprised that no body was forming. 


4.The hottie: 
OMG, you know that girl that just thinks she's too fine or just finer that everyone else and she no go just siddon one place, gallivanting around. 

5.The Gossip; 
So while we were dancing and feeling ourselves, there were a group of girls that were just gossipin upandan. How do i know they were talking about us. They weren't good at been coded. Unlike me when i want to gossip, you won't even know. lol

6: The judger:
So aunty, you came for a wediing and the bride was pregnant, why start asking judgy questions. Is it your belle they are using to carry the baby or is it your money they will use to pay hospital bills or buy clothes. Keep your thoughts to your self and learn how to respect other peoples decisions.

7. The Questionaire: 
You are just on your own o, enjoying your self then one sister or brother will just come and start asking you questions asif you you are the MC abi you are the event planner....have they cut the cake, how did they meet,  what did she say, did she buy her dress here. na wa na wa. people of this world go and ask the bride

8. The Beggar:
So you will just be sitting dwn, one aunty will come and start explaining  things to you, excuse me ma, please if you can help eme with 200 naira for transport fair blah blah blah. So how/why did you come for the wedding and the funny thing is that this person is looking good o.  

9. The Souvenir Thieves:
I nearly wanted to write the theifer or the stealer cause no they don't deserve a proper word. How dare you come to a wedding and thief my souvenir. so na you need am pass. The way we were all hiding and holding on to our souvenir, one would think we got a warning call like watch out for the thiefers

I hope you enjoyed these events as much as I did, please don't forget to like, subscribe, share and comment. I LOVE YOU FOR READING AND TILL MY NEXT POST.

HOW TO TREAT DRY SCALY LIPS

November 24, 2016
 Hello beauties.... How's your day going. So as you all know it's harmattan period here in Nigeria or Abuja and I'll be writing so many tips that can help you and your family through it. Focusing mostly on beauty,  child care and fashion.

Read 4-skin-care-guides-for-your-kids-this harmattan period

One can have dry, scaly lips all year round. But this period is the worst for most people like me who have scaly lips problem even my little boy is going through it too. Cracked lips is very uncomfortable for everyone and just applying petroleum jelly most times don't work at least for me.  Cause it dries out after a while.

The best natural homemade remedy is to exfoliate your lips to treat dry, scaly lips. This will also keep your lips soft and succulent. Lol

Here are 3 tricks you can try yourself in the comfort of your home and with the ingredient you are comfortable with.



1. The first lips exfoliation trick I'll bring to you needs only a finger scoop of petroleum jelly or vaseline and a toothbrush. You do this by filling up your lips with petroleum jelly then using a toothbrush, gently massage in the jelly in a circular motion. Wipe off the excess petroleum jelly. Whereas the toothbrush exfoliates/softens your lips, the petroleum jelly leaves your lips extra luscious and succulent. Repeat this trick a couple times a day until your lips are free from dry scaly lips patches.

2. The second trick that works to get rid of scaly lips is to apply organic coconut oil onto your lips and then scrub them in circular motions with a wet, warm small face towel. It will exfoliate your lips to make them extra soft and juicy. If you don’t have coconut oil, you can use extra virgin olive.

3. The third trick is honey & brown sugar lip scrub.

(i) Take a little bit of pure organic honey in your palm.
(ii) Add a small amount of brown sugar, and mix the two together in your palm using your finger. Add a drop of water if needed to have desired consistency.
(iii) apply it onto your lips and this will keep your lips soft and sumptous


FYI:


(i) We are all guilty of this but please try your best not to lick your lips as in avoid it cause it doesn't hydrate dries it out quickly because saliva contains enzymes that draw moisture out of the skin.

(ii) Before applying a lip balm, moisten your lips with cool water, and then apply an oil-based balm to lock in moisture.

(iii) Other natural options you can use are Shea butter, almond oil,  aloe Vera gel,  olive oil,  castor oil and Avoid using one packaged products.

(iv)  This can also work for your kids cause they are all natural.


Please share the tips that have worked for you or someone you know in the comment section. I love you for reading and till my next post. XoXo

4 SKIN CARE GUIDES FOR YOUR KIDS THIS HAMATTAN SEASON

November 17, 2016


Hello mamasitas. How y'all doing....sorry I have being MIA but Itw my business o. OMG it's like I should take a week off everything, husband,  kids,  business etc. I really need a trip. Ideas please.  Oh I didn't tell you but for those of you following me on facebook know that I now have a clothing business which is online and offline but mainly off line.  Yes I sell fairly used clothes or just call it OK.  and it's been seriously hectic.  Waking up taking care of everything and preparing to go to the shop isn't really a thing but I really appreciate God for bringing us this far.  So if you are interested please patronise your sister so the ministry can move.
I sell bras,  cotton nighties,  kiddies and baby shoes

So today's post is to guide you or give you some tips on how to care for your kids/toddlers/infants skin this hamattan period

1: Do not dry out the skin after bath.  Use a clean towel and pat dry and do not rub.  You don't want the skin to break out

2: Ditch the lotions and creams for now.  No don't throw then away just keep it aside for now and go back to your oila and petroleum jelly like Vaseline.  This will help keep the skin soft and nourish and also make the skin shine and since you are not drying out the skin in the first place, you do not need so much. This can also be applied on the lips to keep it soft too.


3: Wear them pop socks, leggings and long trousers especially for the older kids .  Depending on how old your child is you have to wear them things that will help retain moisture.  You know this period everywhere is annoyingly are dry and if you expose their skin,  it will definitely dry out. Another thing is for those of us that our kids are very active, it helps prevent wounds, scratches and injuries.

4: Wear them coveralls. This is very importance especially for toddlers infants and babies. This will also help retain moisture and prevent the skin for breaking.

What other tips do you have.  Please share with us in the comment section. I love you for reading and till my next post.  xoxo
