Beauty Hacks You Want To Know

My foray into the world of hacking started late last year when I saw a beauty hack somewhere online, tried it and it worked. I was astonished and I decided to find out others. Getting more for less in the Beauty department can give you one tingly feeling and you just want to go on and on with experimenting. Read these beauty hacks I can bet you never knew of and GLOWW.

- Go natural with your makeup remover by using coconut oil/vaseline. This one is the truth. It works even for those stubborn matte lipsticks. It will not only remove your makeup, it would also moisturise your skin leaving it supple and smooth.

-There's this colour in your eyeshadow palette you'd rather have on your nails? Just crush it, mix with clear nail polish and voila! No expenses incurred, you just got yourself a unique nail colour.

- All that lipstick in and you still aren't doing anything to eliminate dead cells? Give yourself that cute pinky pout by exfoliating either with a soft toothbrush or a DIY lip scrub consisting of sugar, honey, coconut oil/olive oil.

- So you've been defeating the purpose of which you're washing your face by not washing your hands first? Stop doing that and you'll stop introducing more bacteria to your face.

-We all have that lipstick we love but whyyyy does it have to look so intense? Solve this by applying with your fingertip instead of straight from the tube.

- You've run out of nail remover? Just apply clear nail polish to cotton wool and dab it on the nail you want to clean.

- Solve that problem pimple by dabbing some honey on it before you sleep and you'll wake up to see it's not as serious. Honey acts as an antibacterial agent.

- You accidentally bought a foundation that's a tad too dark? Of course, you don't want to throw it away. Just add a bit of moisturiser to help lighten it and you're good to go.

There are numerous hacks out there but I thought to limit this post to only those I've tried. I wrote down a lot I intend to try but procrastination won't let me be. What other hacks work for you? Please let me know and don't forget to use the various share buttons. Happy Hacking!!

      minimally.

  4. Yess, the coconut oil as a makeup remover is one that I use. Also, if I'm doing my makeup and I end up smudging my eyeliner, I just use some coconut oil to wipe off the smudge, it works. I've never heard of the dark foundation hack though, thank you for sharing. And thank you for your lovely comment. xx

  9. I have tried the coconut oil makeup remover and it works perfectly!
    I also made my own hair detangler with extra virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil and water. I wrote about it on my blog. Works like a charm!
    Just last night I made my own body exfoliating scrub with extra virgin coconut oil, brown sugar and lime juice. Totally loving it.
    These hacks saves a lot of money and are healthier.
    Thanks for the helpful post, Olaa!

  13. Coconut oil as a makeup remover is the actual truth! In fact, it reduces he harshness of whatever face wash I use after and ensures that my skin is not stripped of all its natural oils.

    Very useful hacks, I'll try the honey one soon.

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham

A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

Don't you just love how February flew by quickly? I definitely do and it came with lots of fun and of course, reading.. It feels just like yesterday when I published this POST  on the books I read in January and now it's time to write about the ones in February.
As there's only 28 days in February, I actually thought I'd be able to complete only 3 books but I'm typing this on the 26th day and I was able to go through 5 books! It however isn't in the numbers but in how each book eventually makes one a better person.

Enough digression, I initially planned to read mature romance novels because month of love but after the way the first book I read made me feel, I changed course immediately and went on to read other genres touching topics ranging from racism, colonialism to holocaust stories to a young adult medical fiction and even a children's storybook!

4 Cliché (Not so Cliché) Lessons From A Short Trip.

I have a love hate relationship with a lot of things and situations such as with skirts as I wrote about in this POST. I have a love hate relationship with traveling. I absolutely love to see new places, learn new things and all that but I hate the long distance that has to be traveled as a time always comes during every journey that I get claustrophobic and then there's always one or two accident scenes on the road. It's not always pretty. You'd probably think I'm talking about a 7 hours journey but No. Laugh all you want but a 3hours with almost 30 minutes journey inspired this post while I was looking out of the window at nothing in particular. I realized some lessons the journey thought me and though cliché, I thought to share it still on the blog as this act would make the lessons stick and also to reach out to someone who might need this.
