The flames that burn in her heart dance in her eyes.
She is compassionate,
Arms outstretched she lends her help.
She is unapologetic,
Shrewd in business and sound in mind, she refuses to play it down.
She is strong,
She carries the future of the nation for 9 months inside her and for 3 years in her arms.
She is authentic,
Everything is done her way, her pace and her style.
She is a multitasker,
She joggles her kids, family, career and dreams and none of them fall.
She is beautiful,
Every inch, curve or bump is beautiful.

Earth
Fire
Music; drums beating -slow, fast, slow, fast
Bodies gyrating as if possessed by the spirit of whom they celebrate, their pants adding a new texture to the rhythm, they shine, their sweat gleaming on their skin as the light of the fire illuminates them.
From the earth through the fire she’s being formed – waxing and waning she’s moulded in the fire.
Kneeling around her are her ancestors, they clasp their hands, heads bowed, voices raised in unison with the drums, spirits high in anticipation -she’s almost here now.
The earth rumbles, the ante up, the haze of the excitement blinding.
She’s here now, her form is in the fire.
The torch is passed, Cleopatra to Rosa Parks, she passes to Amina of Zaria and with a smile on her face she gives it to Maya Angelou. Maya smiles, ecstatic as she passes it on to the most recent Maeyo Joie, and from a modern queen to another she hands the torch to me. From the embers of the fire another QUEEN is born.
My mark etched to my child bearing hips.
Hands lifted in appreciation.
Eyes lifted as I pray, and await his approval, and then he breathes.
His breath awakening my senses.
It is my era now. My reign, my rules.
From the fire, earth sealed with a breath -a QUEEN.

This is also a no make-up look, but this time no brows, no white powder, I started uni recently and since I’m not in the mood for all the make-up, I just don’t do anything. I think I look decent for no make-up

This 2 photos are also throwbacks, my sister(the one in the picture), my friend and I went to watch the wedding party, the movie is toooo cool! But, I went with other things in mind, I know nobody puts this much effort into going to the movies, but, I was going fishing and Β I needed to look extra tapping.

Foundations I Want!

IMG_20170103_223228_770.jpg

1. LANCOME TEINTE IDOLE ULTRA 24H FOUNDATION.

What a long name! So I was walking around the palms shopping mall, and I just saw a random beauty store, then the attendant basically bundles over to this foundation and he basically swore on his life that this is the best he has seen…. like ever! Believe me, he is not lying, he just put a tiny drop on the back of my hand and the coverage was almost unbelievable and do you know what I loved the most? It wasn’t thick, it as light weight as it gets and I felt like it won’t become a mask on my face. But, beware o, the price can shock you. In fact, when I asked the guy ‘what if it breaks? ‘ he started recounting a story of a lady that was in tears because it broke o.

I’ll still buy it sha, I just hope I don’t have a crisis if it breaks.

PRICE: ₦18,000( although in the store it’s 23k, buy it on Jumia.com it’s cheaper)

2. KAT VON D LOCK-IT FOUNDATION.

Sooooo, tbh I have never really tested this foundation, but most of the youtubers I watch swear by it, especially Omabelle, she says its amazing, and the coverage is amazing, since I don’t know much I got a review….. Β  Β https://habibadasilva.com/kvd-foundation-review/

  • This foundation is definitely one of the most pigmented/full coverage foundations I’ve ever used. would recommend this foundation for someone who has a lot of imperfections to cover on their face, who doesn’t want to use too many products; this foundation covers blemishes like aΒ dream!
  • It blends really well with aΒ damp sponge/beauty blender. I found it to be too cakey with a stippling/buffing brush.
  • It’s the perfect foundationΒ if you have an important event in a humid/hot atmosphere where you need your foundation to stay on all day with minimal touch ups.
  • Your blush/contour/bronzer/highlighter will adhere amazingly to the foundation and last all day!
  • You don’t need much of the foundation to cover your face because it’s so pigmented.
  • Could be used as a full coverage blemish concealer.

*However there are some cons, check them out on her blog, the only problems really were that she likes light weight foundation that she can wear day to day, it dries quickly and it’s not the best for dry skin.

This one’s price got me shook too, I know some Lagos big girls will say it’s not so bad, but me that I’ve been using ₦3,500 Mary Kay for the longest, this price shook me to my toes.

PRICE: ₦18000( I had to convert the dollar myself, I don’t know if the exchange rate will change and I don’t know charges for delivery/shipping.

XOXO.
