Olive Green Smokey Eye + Youtube Video


Hey guys happy new month, I hope this new month has brought blessings thus far. Here is a makeup look I did a couple of days ago. I wanted to do something that kind of incorporated both fall and summer seeing as summer is almost slipping away from us (insert sad face), and we will soon be transitioning into fall. Anyway I thought this Olive Green Smokey Eye look would be perfect for that.

Blogging Tips 101 \\ Installing Adsense, Template to use, Wordpress or Blogger and more


Hey guys happy weekend!! Today I will be starting my blogging tips series. I have gotten a few questions via email on blogging tips, how to start up adsense on blogger, whats the best template to use and just overall how to have a better blog. So I decided to start this series because afterall thats what I am here for, and if I don't share what my readers want to see then that would make me a bad blogger.

Starting out, everything I know about blogging I taught myself with the help of videos and images online, so I know the struggle. For this first series I will answer questions like; what blogging host should I use ? What do I blog about ? Should I create a social media page ? How to set up adsense and much more, so keep reading and hopefully this is a little helpful to those of you who need answers to these kind of questions.

10 HACKS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW: Air out your Vagina, shave your face, how to look more confident

So I recently saw this video by Patricia Bright (which has quickly gotten very popular) on hacks every woman should know. It resonated so much with me, I just had to share it with you guys, because I think that every woman should know this. It was also very educational and I learned a lot of tricks to being a woman. Enjoy!!


1. Air out your Vagina/Huha/Veejayjay:
This is funny because I never knew Silk & Synthetic underwear traps moisture. Ladies, lets invest more in cotton underwear because those resist moisture and stop unwanted boils or infections such as yeast and bacterial infections. Go commando/naked at night if you have to, it don't hurt nobody. Let your huha breathe.

9 Best Stores to shop online // Zara, Public Desire, VS, Missguided and more


I thought I would share with you guys some of my favorite stores I like to shop online. Shopping online is both a blessing and a curse, I'm sure we can all agree. It is so much easier to sit on your bed, hit the check out button and just wait like a queen for your parcel to arrive versus going through all the craziness that comes with shopping at the store; long queues, hours of going through merchandise and limited available items. On the bad side you can spend all your money on online shopping and you don't even know it, but that still doesn't stop us...lol

20 Things you need to know in your 20's : relationships, sex, money, career, etc


1.You’re expected to be 100% independent: #keyword 'expected' lol..I remember when my best friend and I were in the 12th grade (SS3) we would always say that the next time we see each other after college (at 22) we would greet each other in our range rovers. Fast-forward 5 years later, we greeted each other in a Keke na pep and we were still living in our parents house ...lol how ironic. It’s crazy how in high school you think you will be your own boss after you graduate college but it never quite happens like that.

2. A lot of wrong decisions will be made: Countless times you will make very foolish decisions, and some you will regret. But always remember to pick yourself up, it’s not the end of the world. There is a quote I love by my favorite pastor Joel Osteen he says “there is a reason the rear view mirror in your car is very small compared to your windshield, its because what is behind you is very small compared to what is in front of you”…. This leads me to my next point
