Hey guys,

I have decided to start writing a ton of beauty reviews. Yep, I am officially your guinea-pig!!! ( I do it for love, lol). I know quite a number of you are curious to see the end results of purchasing some products and would love some advice before going ahead to ‘waste’ or ‘invest’ money in beauty products (c’mon, we all know they ain’t cheap!) . So there you go guys, expect a lot of reviews from me and I promise I will be as honest as I can be (except I am paid to do one , lol…just kidding…or not).

Moving on…, Look what got delivered today!!!!

My very own Ben Nye Banana Powder which I heard by the way is amazing on medium skin (olive-bronze), Beauty Blender Sponge the supposed ‘Holy Grail’ of make up sponges and The Elf Cream Eyeliner which gives the polished look of liquid eyeliner without the hassle. Let’s see if all the hype surrounding these products is actually true, right?

Benefits Of Extra Virgin Olive Oil For Hair

Health+Beauty

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a large proportion of vitamins A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E, which is a key source of protein needed in the fight against free radicals. This makes extra virgin olive oil particularly helpful in the fight against skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and seborrheic eczemas.

Health Benefits :

  • Using olive oil for hair growth is an excellent remedy for growing a head of healthy hair. A thorough massage of olive oil on the scalp will improve blood circulation and stimulate the hair follicles.
  • Olive oil strengthens the hair follicles and provides better anchorage for the hair roots, preventing their fall. Thus olive oil for hair loss is an excellent measure.
  • You can get rid of dandruff by massaging extra virgin olive oil in the scalp. This will help lock moisture in the scalp and prevent its drying, thus reducing the flakes.

The 3-Part Series of: Is She Letting Herself Go?

The Beauty Cloud

PART 1 :

“I don’t need to buy an expensive underwear to feel pretty”…

As you all know, the beauty industry is dictating new fashion trends, products that “should” be used by all of us and explaining, “what beauty should look like”. But we all are aware of how the marketing works and how it affects our perception of beauty.

Let’s then take a step back and have a think: why do I need so many cosmetics, clothes, shoes, bags, etc. Is it because I like…

Split Personality

 
 
 

Hey guys,

I just created a new set on POLYVORE titled ‘Split Personality’.

This set is inspired by the above-average career woman whose love for high-end fashion items is evident but who is also sensible enough to know that price isn’t a determinant for quality. She is a trendsetter and her style is mainly dependent on her mood. She is very elegant but not afraid to push the boundaries a bit (clear in her color block mini dress), a girly girl with some edge (spiked Alice band) and a rebel at heart but too afraid to show it so she allows glimpses of it to show in her fashion choices.
