My Most Popular Pins

Yes pins, I made no mistake.
If you have checked my sidebar then you most definitely have seen the link to my Pinterest account.

Every week, Pinterest sends out a mail notifying account owners of their most popular pins for the week, inspirational boards they would like and top pins for the week too.

Well, I just got the mail about my top pins for the week and I would love to share them with you.
Yes, the year has almost ended but still, these are pins I have loved and others have loved with me too.
no week passes by without a notification about another like or re-pin of this image. I guess I can understand why though.

‘Ankara Rebel’ AT LOST IN LAGOS

A beauty to behold, when the glory of a woman is beautifully adorned for all to see
I was at the last edition of the Lost in Lagos shopping event at Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos. I didn’t get to take pictures of the different stands as I was without my camera but I saw a lot of beautiful items for sale there. From printed clothes and hand made art items to antique jewellery and even home accessories.

Product Review: 'Motives by Loren Ridinger'

I am definitely threading on delicate ground with this review and so I have decided to make it as brief as possible so I don't end up in a coma before the day is out.
Well, that will only happen if I write the wrong things though but trust me, I will be as truthful as humanly possible.

Friendship Haul

I really should be very ashamed of myself for not showing you guys the very awesome haul (including Motives by Loren Ridinger products) that I got in late November.

Abi of Abizart has wanted to send me some Motives products to review for a while but there was no one. So when a friend was going to the UK on a 2-week visit (he got the fabulous chocolate which you can read more about here), I sent him her number and voila, I got a makeup haul.
From the back - Van Der Burgh Chocolate, Benefit Hello Flawless Brightening foundation, MAC eyeshadow pigments, New Eve cosmetics (a new brand Abi wants me to check out) and Motives compact powder, blush and eyeshadow.
 Everything is in draft and I will be posting the reviews of these before the Konga haul reviews.

KONGA.com Haul

All readers of my blog including my FB fans and Twitter followers, know that not too long ago, I had an issue with an online shopping site where I didn’t get my money back until I published a post about it.

Well, I decided to venture out again on konga.com this time around, it was payment upon delivery and not before.

My order arrived right on time and here is everything I ordered.
clockwise from left - Revlon Colorstay 12 hour eyeshadow, Urban Decay cream eyeshadow, MAC Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow, Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick, Maybelline Eyestudio Silky Glam eyeshadow
from the office supply section and I am sure you know what I got this for right?
Reviews coming right up.

Product Review: Zaron 'Read My Lips' Lip gloss


“There is nothing I like better than having a woman with full, inviting lips beckon at me every night.”

Those were my exact thoughts when I first saw the new Zaron Read My Lips l/g. I will not be lying or exaggerating when I say that it is the best nude lip gloss I have ever seen.

It is suitable for any skin shade and is very adaptable as it can be used alone or over a lip stick.

Product Review: L'Oreal HIP Foundations & RR Shea Luxury Oil

Stagnation in any life process is not a key to success in overcoming defeat in that area
Thus, I recently decided to change my foundation routine and upgrade my 'hairdrobe' (I got that from African Naturalistasespecially as I am falling more in love with my natural hair.

Makeover 1923: Stella (with Zaron & Wet n' Wild)

I was in the office over night!
In the advertising industry this is not unheard of and is sometimes a rather frequent occurrence.

That aside, my sister was going out that morning and had earlier requested that I do her makeup. I had no choice but to get out my kit as soon as I stepped into the house at 6am on saturday morning.
