    #29| GIVEAWAY!

    I honestly can’t believe that I am a whole 29 years old! It seems so surreal! 30 is around the corner and I am no where near where I thought I would be when I turn 30. This thought used to terrify me I would literally get mini panic attacks when  I think about it but I have learned so many lessons! I might not be there in terms of earthly stuff but I am so blessed because mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I am way beyond my years. My 28th year stood out to me the most. I have always had some wisdom but it was in knowledge. During my 28th year, I learned and gained the strength to put it all into practice! The biggest gift I have received, a gift that I like to think of as a birthday gift in advance is contentment. In the face of the storm that is life, I always manage to find happiness and let me tell you there is nothing better than that.

    Foundation Review MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation and Powder

    We all need a little MAC in our lives.

    I have always wanted to have MAC products! As it is I still have a list of products that I want to get my hands on from MAC. It is one of my favourite high end products without a doubt! Granted, it is purely a result of peer pressure. Many of my friends use MAC and I have seen some beauty bloggers try some products and they always look so amazing especially their Studio Fix Fluid Foundation.

    If you watched video on my YouTube channel last week, you already have all the tea. I am basically bored with my hair journey.

I want to reap the rewards of this hard journey so I decided to switch it up and experiment with my hair responsibly! Starting with blow drying my hair using the tension method.

    My foundation collection | Low end X High end

    Foundation collection

    Picking out the perfect foundation can be quite a daunting task at first. I remember the very first time I went to go buy my first foundation. It was 2009 and the modelling agency I was signed to (We will talk about this some other time LOL) advised that I needed a photo ready foundation I can’t quite remember why. Anyway, I went and I picked out thee famous Caramel shade in the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation. Honestly speaking I don’t remember how it turned out but the point I am trying to drive home is that I didn’t know that you needed your exact match. Fast forward to 2016 when I got back into the make up scene, I was better equipped with knowledge of foundation shades and the need for the foundation to match my skin tone. It gets easier as you get to know your skin tone and undertones.
