Salon Review | KL's Natural Beauty Bar

Finally, my review of a natural hair salon at last. I am not promising that this will be regular cos I do like doing my hair myself, besides I really can be a cheapskate sometimes (a lot of the time more like right? lol)
Nwayz, here it is - KL's Natural Beauty Bar owned by Kemi Lewis. I met her at SMW2014, well not met exactly cos we didn't say a word to each other. Discovered her on Instagram again and her name stuck.
yup, that's me getting my hair done *grin*

Celebrating Underscore, that bloody copywriter

I started typing this the day after I heard. I was lying down to sleep and didn't even know when I opened the blogger app on my phone and began to type. The next day in broad daylight I held back from completing this post. I now believe however, that it will be a great disservice to his memory not to speak about him here on my blog. He loved it here. Never understood why I spent so much of my time on it and even one day teased me about being invited to a TED Talk to speak about makeup, lol (it coming true will be the greatest tribute to him I can ever give)
if Debola could've stuffed his bag with croissants, he would have.

My Hair: Does Natural Hair need a trim?

A couple of months ago I posted this image and caption on Instagram/Facebook and got asked a lot of questions about why I would trim my hair, does it need trimming etc.
Trimmed & moisturised. I always end up with a damp hairstyle on the first day. Hopefully, I'll get a proper braidout from this tomorrow.

My Hair: Recent Styling et al.

My natural hair has been the topic of so much recent conversation that sometimes even I am in awe of the darned thing. I have learned though to respect it. One thing that keeps me going where my natural hair is concerned is the fact that I have been blessed with it by God. Genes, or whatever, it is a blessing and not a curse and so I treat it as such.

I play around with it more often now and have more fun with it now which is quite refreshing I must admit. While we are on the subject, does anyone know what I can do to get it to itch less? I hear mint products work wonders.

Foundation Please

It’s a beautiful day and the sun is shining, for the first time in a long time I’m awake early and in time to be the first at the office even after applying my makeup. So I take the time to apply my makeup – from foundation to blush and lip-gloss.

Goodbye 32, Hello 5! The Basic Makeup Brushes you Need

Returning back to BellaNaija as a Guest Beauty Contributor, one of the challenges I faced was What to write. As shocking as that may seem, the question plagued me for a while before I sent a mail to the Beauty Editor with the perfect return post. The idea? Go back to the very beginning

There are many aspects to getting your makeup routine ready – and one of those very important aspects is getting the right must-have brushes. Now I know your mind is probably wandering to the 24 brush set you see makeup artists strap to their waist. Do not be afraid.Your everyday routine might not need that many brushes.

Inspire | 5 Ways to Do Nothing and Become More Productive

I was surfing the internet a couple of days ago when I came across this article from linkedin.com. My first reaction was "How can anyone do anything productive when they aren't doing anything?". Being a typical 'non-Nigerian, lol, I clicked on the article. It was posted by James Altucher (google him) in March of this year but is relevant all year(s) round.
