Office looks #03

Hullo Dolls…..
How’s your Sunday going?
Who says you can't wear a soft smokey look to the office? You totally can! *note that i said ‘soft’ not ‘intense’*. I was going for a soft smoked out look, so i used a dark brown eyeshadow to create the 3rd look in the series.

But before i share the look with you all, i have something else to gush about……i finally watched the movie ‘Half of a yellow sun’ last night! Chei…chei….chei! I don’t know how to start describing the awesomeness of this movie! I have read the book twice in the past, and now after watching it last night, i’m totally going to start reading it again tomorrow *big grin*.
In my humble opinion, the movie cast fit the characters in the novel like a glove… in, the people they chose to portray the characters on screen looked and acted just the way i pictured them in my head while reading the book. Now, i’m going to be careful not to spoil the movie for those who haven’t seen it by revealing too much, but just know that it’s a great movie with superb acting. The scenes played out beautifully, and it was oh so real! Made me imagine how terrible the war must have been *may our eyes never see war ooo!*. If you haven’t watched the movie, please go and watch it inugo (you hear?).
Now, on to the matter of the day…Office look #03…..

Gist | AMUF4 in pictures.

Well, hello again beauties…..
How are you all doing? Hope good.
As for me, Mish just scared me shitless! I turned on my laptop just now to do a post, and what greeted me was a blue and white screen with black zig-zag lines and what looked like an ink stain on the screen. It occurred to me that my laptop fell down and resulted to that, but i wasn’t quite sure. With my heart pounding frantically, i asked around, and Dindu told me that Mish sat on it. Say what?!! Sat on my laptop?!! WHY?! HOW?! WHEN?! WHY?!.

My innocent lappy was just sitting jejely on my vanity table, why on earth did she go thereeee? The first thought that came to my mind was that my blogging career was oveeeer! *Horrors!* Ok, maybe not that, but i was wondering how to get it fixed and how long it would take…..of course, that would have meant no blogging for a long while *God forbid bad thing!*. I took out the battery and put it back in but the coloured screen was still there.

Office looks #02

Good evening.
How’s it going? Hope everyone is good. Well, over here, we are doing okay.
Zuriel *A.K.A Rainbow* is doing great! She’s 4 months old now *Can you believe it?!* and she’s turned into a hyper baby *dabs tears*. Gone are those days when she used to be a calm baby and slept almost through the day. Now when i look at her, i’m like “Who are you and what did you do my baby?!”. She's become very active, always rolling over to lie on her belly, and when she stays in that position for about 1 minute, she gets tired and starts yelling ‘cos she can’t turn herself to lie on her back *she hasn’t learned how to do that yet*, then when i help her turn to lie on her back, she flips herself over immediately. We do this uncountable times, then she starts fighting to collect whatever it is that i’m holding.  Now, i can’t press my phone in peace without chubby hands, slick, shiny and wet with baby spittle grabbing it from me…..sometimes, she knocks it right out of my hand! *dabs more tears*. At night nko? This babe will wake up sometimes and want to play! We’re talking 3am or 3:30am here ooo! Well, she makes up for everything with her toothless grins and cute laughter.

Anyway, This is the second look in the ‘Office looks’ series, and for this look, i went with bronze eyes and brown and white ‘ombre’ lips.

I used a bronze-colored eyeshadow all over my lids, and contoured the outer corners of my eyes with a dark brown shade with a matte texture.

BETTER LIVING | When God is involved.

Good evening dears, how’s your Sunday going?

Today, i want to share some tips with you, tips that would help you live better.
When i started the ‘Better-living’ segments, i did it because i usually get some inspiration that i yearn to share with scores of people…….and what better way is there to share than by using this platform of mine? So today, i’ll let you know why it’s important that you get God involved in EVERYTHING you do.

I cannot over-emphasize the fact that God is my everything. I involve Him in my big decisions as well as my little decisions. Infact, if anything, God wants to be involved more in your little decisions than in your big decisions. I learnt that a while ago from a pastor friend of mine (PD).  Here’s what he said :

PRODUCT REVIEW | 'Calla' lip gloss by BM|Pro

Hello beauties…..
Today, i woke up to wonderful news……. I won a giveaway competition!! Whoop-whoop!
Just yesterday, i visited Buki's blog, and saw that there was an on-going giveaway competition, she was celebrating her 3 months ‘Blogniversary’, and the 10th person to comment was supposed to be the winner.  So i
 typed and posted my comment. Since comment moderation was enabled, we couldn’t tell who won right away.
So this morning, i woke up to a notification that i had won the giveaway…….my joy knew no bounds especially as i’ve never won anything in my life. The prize was N2,000 airtime for any mobile network, but once i gleefully told Buki that i had  never won anything in my life..…ever, she upped it to N3,000! Imagine that?! Three thaaaaasand naira credit (like my Igbo brothers will say)! I was elated mehn! Thanks again Buki for being so kind-hearted. God bless you.

Today, i’ll be reviewing a product i bought months ago at the ‘Wed EXPO’. It’s a lip gloss by BM|Pro.

B 'n D Makeover | Jennifer's birthday makeover

Two days ago, i met Jennifer at the store and she told me that she had a birthday coming up. I asked her to come to the studio for a free makeover (my gift to her), and today, she came for her beautiful birthday ‘face beat’. She had no particular look in mind and just asked me to do a nice look for her, so i decided to go with my favorite look……. Le smokey , la hot! Hotting like faya!!

Tips on how to wear office makeup | Office looks #01

Hello beautiful people!
How’s it going?
I promised some posts ago that i would share some office looks with you…..but before i do that, let me share some tips for wearing office makeup .  I realized that some of my readers are probably nine –to-fivers, and have no idea what kind of makeup they ought to wear to the office. I’m sick of seeing ladies at the bank or other offices wearing loud red or pink blush, blue or green eyeshadow that looks like they just swiped it on with a finger and didn’t bother to blend it out, or shiny shiny shiny lips! I haff tired of it! So today, i wanna educate you a ‘lil……….
