Monaco is absolutely gorgeous. I honestly cannot articulate how beautiful a city it is. From the historic buildings to the luxury lifestyle woven into the seams of the city, it is breathtaking.
My good friend Cherono (hey girl!) and I went to Big Easy in Covent Garden for a lobster attack. See, Cherono doesn’t live in London so I was trying to show her the best places. Did I achieve that? Well let’s find out.
So this isn’t my first dance with a beauty blog post, but it is the first one I have really spent time creating. First of all I wanted to scream from the rooftop about these products because I really really really (you get the gist) like them. Second, I wanted the pictures to be mine, taken by ME. I was sweating guys (I was that stressed out), but I absolutely loved it. I felt like such a creative with the camera round my neck crouching and moving about to get the “perfect light”. I’m beginning to really enjoy this blogging life *swings head from side to side*.
On to the reason for the post, these products I’m absolutely loving right now and have used and abused them for the past few months. Here are my beauty favourites right now.
I need some shares in Expedia, or some travel agency. I’m serious, I can’t help myself with a good holiday and a girl (me) would love some return on her spending because holidays ain’t cheap. That being said, there are ways to make them more affordable, one of them is traveling in shoulder season, like we did on this trip.
I’m a huge couch potato (that didn’t come out right). I love love love TV shows, it makes me sound boring when people ask the dreaded “What do you do for fun?”. I can just see the judgement when I say my hobbies are TV shows 🙁 . But the truth is, apart from the fictional and often dramatic entertainment they provide, TV shows have a way of portraying some real-life truths that make you really think. The good ones at least.
I go hard for my TV shows. I like them in all flavours; Action, Thriller, Cheesy Romantic (not so much), fantasy, you name it. At some point in my life, I determined whether or not I would get along with someone I just met based on the TV shows they watch/like. Don’t judge me okay!
On to the list, I tried hard to whittle this down and of course, they are categorised, for what is life without order 🙂
It has been spring for about 2 weeks already here in the UK, and I have confirmed with myself that there is a certain feeling that comes upon me once it’s spring. I’m not sure if it’s the change in temperature or the longer days, but my moods are certainly lifted in the springtime. Being myself, I decided to list my favourite things about this season.
Look at me coming on here to make jokes, when I really should have my tail between my legs. After my self motivating, high energy start to the year, I feel like my #Goals and grand ambitions for this blog left me a bit weak in the knees. You know the scenario when you’re talking smack to someone and they say the dreaded “Let’s take this outside”, the HOT BLOOD that gushes through your body (I talk like i’ve been in that situation before, I’m too chicken to fight guys!).
“What on earth?” is the question I kept asking myself during my masters year. I thought I had been through the eye of the needle in terms of academic feats; having passed through a grueling 6 month foundation course in science and engineering (i.e. a-levels in 6 months) and a three year hell ride in Electronic Engineering, I thought “What could be tougher than that?”. Boy, was I in for a treat.
I studied for a masters degree after a painful 3 years of engineering and I did this for two reasons:
1. I wanted to pursue that line of work
2. I’m Nigerian, I had no choice (I joke)….but do I?
Another year is upon us and I’m so grateful we are all here in one piece. I also mourn those that did not make it into the year and I pray for eternal rest for those who passed away recently.
On a lighter note, this time of year sees many lists being made and habits being dropped or picked up. I feel like there is something about the start of the year that provides a new energy and motivation, I love it. Even though the reality is we simply went from Thursday to Friday (but let’s not talk about that), it’s all about the new!
If you’ve already set your goals and are doing well by today Jan 8th, well done. If you’ve already fallen off, get back on. And if you haven’t set any at all, get to setting!
Here’s a guide to help set yourself up for success on your 2016 goals.
