I can't even believe I'm getting to share this collaboration with you on my blog and YouTube channel! I've admired Sunshine Balogun's looks for AGES so when she agreed to beat my face I couldn't be happier!
I hope you're having a fabulous weekend! I sure am:-) I just thought I'd share what's in my Teddy Blake handbag! Ya know us girls gotta be prepared at all times. The only thing missing is hot sauce to be honest! Haha!
One of my favourite ways to unwind is by self-pampering right here at home in my cozy, little apartment. As I mentioned in my July favorites video, my pampering routine covers my body from head to toe. I received these goodies from Lush Cosmetics and had to put them to the test. I'm honestly quite impressed and I have to say, these are fast becoming my go-to, holy grail, home spa treats. Let's dig in, shall we?
I've fallen in love with my new hometown, Melbourne. But I'll tell you this, when I first met Melbourne, I was not overly impressed. Its drab, moody winter were my welcome to the land down under and its haphazard layout of double-story buildings lacked the grandeur and glory of shiny, urban skyscrapers.
I have a little secrett about me you should know: comfy undergarments are my little guilty pleasure! Now don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a healthy splurge on handbags, hair accessories and heels but intimates are some of my favourite buys. I love that this part of my wardrobe is especially for my very own enjoyment. After all, unless you’re my mirror, you’re probably not going to see me in my bras and briefs!
How you doing? I'm doing really well. I'm surrounded by some fantastic treats from The Body Shop - Melbourne Central. You know how much I LOVE little girlie finds to keep my hair growing and my skin glowing, so let's dig right in shall we? :-)
I know it's August 8th but to be honest, I'm still using "07" when I write the date rather than "08"! Haha! Where is this year going to? We're almost 3/4 through the year! #SayWhat! July was a fun month! (Yes I'm still talking about July because I'm in denial that we have 145 days till the end of the year! *Gasp!*) No really, I had a lot of fun in July!
How's tricks? I hope you are bubbly, beaming and plain buzzing as you read this! I'm super stoked to be letting you in on this little beauty secret of mine - detox teas!! Flat Tummy Tea is fast gaining a name for itself on social! I've seen lots of naturalistas claim the benefits of drinking these teas, so I've finally jumped on to the bandwagon.
I sure do hope you're having a wonderful day! I’m honestly doing very well – I’ve had a bubble of energy these past two days. I think it’s because I was unwell during the first half of the week. Speaking of getting our health back on track, I’ve been drawing on four power foods from my pantry! If you saw yesterday’s post and YouTube video, you know why I am utterly OBSESSED with these four foods!! Be sure to click on this link here for more deets.
I sure do hope you're keeping very well! I'm happy and dandy! I've been eating a lot of green, organic food lately and quite frankly I've seen a tremendous improvement in my general wellbeing. I don't know about you, but whenever I decide to eat healthier, my mind and spirit feel better as well. There's something truly holistic about consciously caring for your body!! :-)
For today's post, I thought I'd share a couple of beauty and lifestyle hacks that I've picked up along the way! By along the way, I mean in the past 4 or so years! My birthday is in a couple of days - December 7th! Woohoo!! I'll be turning 25!! :-)))
"It really is a strange situation to find oneself in - that of attending your own funeral. If anyone told me that the day would come when I would get to listen to my own eulogy, see old lost friends shed a tear and notice the absence of those I had assumed would be at my funeral, I would have thought them mad."
I have to admit that make-up is fast-becoming a favorite of mine! As I said in my daily make-up routine, when I am not scouring the internet for the latest on hair, you're bound to find me on some make-up YouTube channel or other!! Are you with me on this one?
My move is coming together piece by piece. One of the hardest things, however, is choosing a few products to carry with me across the Pacific!! There's a gazillion products available in the US, so picking a handful was an exercise in precision!
This is a topic that is close to all of our hearts: weight gain/loss and fitness. I could write a whole book plus some on my own struggles with my weight and body self-esteem!! My fitness story is one that has had many highs and lows. Like many young women, growing into their adult bodies, I was perplexed at why my body loved to hold on to extra rolls of fat! Smh!
Speaking of fruitful, I can't help but notice all the fruity scents I have lined up in my April beauty favourites list! Maybe it's because spring is in the air on this side of the world? I tend towards buttery notes most times of the year but it never hurts to be carried away by the wafts of the season!
While I do love to strut it au naturale, I can't help it - I love the cake too! In other words, when I'm not scouring the internet for hair tips, you'll be sure to find me on YouTube trying to learn how to shade and blend! We all know the lingo, don't we!
The weekend is upon us. Hoorayy! How blessed we are to have made it through another week, even if by the outermost skin of our teeth. Exhausted is what best describes many of us when the clock strikes 5PM on Furahi-Day (Happy Day)!
