Make-Up Sponges

MAKE-UP SPONGES :  why we need to change them after each application.

         Ever wondered why the blemishes and acne on your face are still difficult to get rid off even after you have used so many products to clear your skin? Well, the answer may not be far off. Make up sponges used by make up artist for powder/foundation application could just be the answer.

 Most make up artist often change these sponges after using them on their clients , then why cant we do the same at home.Every powder or foundation i have bought has come with its own sponge application , but what i tend to do is to get more sponges , even though i do not use make-up on a daily basis, i always toss out the used one i find in my make up bag and use a new one for the next application.

 These sponges were meant to be disposable and this is why.
For every application ,the sponges are kept in the same compartment in your make up bag /dressing table or right in the powder enclosure, and these sponges accumulate ger…

Bread & Groom

The Mini Home Bakery



            For some reason which i really find hard to understand , there has been  a mad rush over the years for the Bread made at the Deli and Pastry section in SHOPRITE stores in Lagos.One could only imagine that this could be because the bakery is right there and the endless queue and fights over at the pastry section is because the bread made there is sold fresh from the Oven.
         I've always loved to embrace nature by making my own meals fresh at home, and eating fresh baked pastries is no exception .So why would i go through the  hustle of driving all the way down to the Deli at Shoprite,then join the long queue (while avoiding being stepped on or pushed around when the battle for this Bread ensues)  for a loaf of bread that is going to be  packed in a plastic/paper bag and eventually get cold by the time i'm ready to eat it.

       So lets talk about this ''special'' bread and what actually makes it so irresistible you want to …

I just want some ice cream this summer.

Moisture For Your Hair

How to make your own Moisturizer.

Having realised my hair was consuming a bottle of Africa's Best detangling Moisturiser cream in less than 3 (three)weeks,i needed to supplement this with something i could make at home, so i came up with this water based solution for keeping your hair moisturised.

Rose Water

Many people will agree that Rose water has been used by many for skin benefits, but did you know that it also nourishes the hair and help prevent dandruff on scalp,a lot of the Rose water sold in stores also come with glycerin ,this is because it works well when usaned together .

So with  a bottle of Rose water and Glycerin, mixed in equal part with water you can have a healthy mositurised hair.

Mix 
One bottle of Boots Rose Water & the same Quantity of  Water (50- 50) in a spray bottle and  shake thoroughly before spraying on to your hair and scalp.
Massage scalp and leave in for about 20 to 30 mins before you wash off,and comb through with a wide tooth comb.
You may decide…

Hair Regimen

Hair Treatment.


Many years ago,As a teenager,i didn't really have issues with my hair ,it was very full ,dark and way past my shoulder length,i didn't do much  to it except the usual relaxing and braiding every now and then , but i realised that i could get more length if  relaxed every three months or more . Well my friends said it was just in my genes and probably i was getting more nutrients/vitamins from my diet that helped with my hair growth. i didn't think so , because later on even though my diet didn't change  i started having hair loss, and severe breakage ,dryness, itchy scalp and i was finding it difficult to get the length to wrap my hair in a bun as i used to, but the colour was still the same ( black) .
 So last year , i then decided to deal with the problem , i resorted to my good ol' organic remedies which i prepared in my kitchen .


This is a protein treatment i use once a week , and then Co wash  with the ORGANIC ROOT STIMULATOR replenishing condi…
