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!!

Life Diary||February

Happy New Month!


The third month of the year is here. And it's my birth month. Whoop. February was really sweet. Just 28 cute and fun days that went by pretty fast. I didn't take stock last month because I wanted a change but right now, I'm too lazy and busy at the same time (how contradictory) so I guess I'd just stick with it for now. Here it goes

Learning  - That nothing is actually perfect in reality. There's always some sort of covering up that happens - in every area.

Hoping - That I get some really pleasant surprises in this new month and that I make the most of the 31 days.

Wanting - A cute pink/purple Bible. All those ones with nice inscriptions by the side to make reading and understanding easier. Birthday gift idea!

Wishing - Someone would just hit me up and bless my bank account. Yes, just like that. 😒😒

Reading  - Currently, The Joys of Motherhood by the late Buchi Emecheta. Apparently almost everyone read this book in Secondary school so I'm a legal …

4 Style Bloggers: On basic styling tips for short dresses

This is a very special post because it's the closest I can get to having something fashion related on the blog. At least for now till I finally adjust to my new timetable.

I always think of short dresses/skirts as a 'heys' dress - heys being the legit sound Nigerian men use to catcall-. I'd define a 'heys' dress for you right about now. That dress that basically gets you heys both with the mouth and the eyes. I don't know which is worse by the way. I think it has to be the former. I mean, every other person around gets to hear the heys and add to your embarrassment.

What inspired this post? Well, obviously I was wearing a heys dress and even though I could have changed before leaving home, there was no time because well I finished late and I also wasn't ready to disrupt the 'timetable' for the week. . I also remembered this popular tweet about how girls would wear short dresses and start pulling it down like we didn't know it was short befo…

Wedding Day Thrills : 6 Things I Look Forward to & 3 That I Don't!

Hey guys, I've not posted in a while. Isn't it nice how that screams consistency? Lol jokes. I promise to do better. I was watching TV the other day and came across this 'It's my wedding' program that showcases all the activities couples go through in prep for their wedding day. I remember being insanely attracted to all the Ovation magazines with wedding pictures when I was way younger.  I was constantly devouring the pictures and you'd think I'd grow up to become a bridal consultant or something close. Life oh Life.
My mantra has always been 'I'm looking forward to my wedding day and not exactly to marriage' but who am I deceiving? Lol.
I think every girl has their wedding fantasy kept somewhere close for easy editing and all so I thought to share some of the reasons I'm looking forward to getting wedded.

•  Pre-wedding shoot : Some years back, this wouldn't have been on the list but with all these beautiful and also hilarious picture…
