HE saves mightily| My testimony

Good evening ladies…
I type this in tears. Today, i confirmed once again that God loves me soooooooo much! Yes He does.
Today, i want to testify about the saving power of God our father. The incident i’m about to recount occurred this evening.
If not for God, today i would have lost my husband *God forbid in Jesus name!*.



We just got back from Victoria Island, and my hubby drove out to return the DSTV decoder he bought just yesterday because it developed issues. While he was out, i decided to go do some washing.

B 'n D Makeover | Flame

Howdy babes!
How you doing this fine Thursday morning?
These okada riders will not ‘laputa’ someone in this Lagos. This morning on my way back from school runs, one hit my car from the back and fell ‘yakata’ on the road….hian!  Yesterday, one lad riding some yards ahead of my car made a sudden U-turn in the middle of the road. I had to brake suddenly to avoid hitting him….thank heavens there was no car behind me or even another mumu-ish okada rider.
Anyway……….
When i was thinking about what look to do, ‘Red’ came to mind. I wanted fiery eyes with some sort of glint, and nude/almost bare lips.
I didn’t have a red eyeshadow in the shade i wanted, so i grabbed my Sleek ‘Scandalous’ blush and packed it on my eyelids…..yeah, you heard me right! I used blush on my eyelids *Looooool!*. I’m sure that lots of makeup artists improvise like that. Sometimes, i use face powder as an eyeshadow sef! *If i’m going for a matte skin-tone shade on the eyes*

PRODUCT REVIEW | L.A Girl PRO.conceal

Dearly beloved
How are you doing? Good morning to you.
Today, i’m going to talk about a concealer i had heard soooo much about, so i finally bought two shades from Beauty.kink at the Beauty Africa Exhibition.


It is the L.A Girl PRO conceal HD concealer *by the way, HD means high definition*. Prior to my purchase, i was using Marykay concealers in ‘Bronze 1 & 2’, and they served me quite well. So when the beauty world went agog with raves about the L.A Girl PRO concealers, i decided to purchase one or two and share my findings with you so you’ll get to know if it’s worth the buy or not.

99.3 Nigeria Info giveaway training session in pictures.

Hello babes!

So this morning, i woke up and checked my blog, only for me to discover that my blog pageviews have reached 700,000 in my absence. OMG!!! Infact, it was 702,220, and i couldn’t hold back my whoop of joy! Only a blogger would know what a big deal page views are, and i owe it all to you my amazing readers. You ladies *and guys* are the best * i must find a way to give back to you all*. Without you, there would be no ‘Blushes ‘n Dimples’ blog……..God bless you all immensely.

Remember when i was interviewed on 99.3 Nigeria Info fm ? 3 listeners won 2 weeks training sessions. The training ended yesterday, and it was a wonderful experience. Folake and Adetoun came with their models, and they did so well. However, the last person never showed up.
I’m always blessed with students that learn really fast…..or maybe i’m just a good teacher *sticks out tongue*.

Here are pictures from the sessions….

Laserderm Skin care Clinic

Hey beauties…….
Have you heard of the skincare outfit called ‘Laserderm Clinics Ltd’?
Laserderm clinics is a skincare clinic which offers a variety of therapeutic and cosmetic procedures to treat and care for your skin right here in Nigeria.
Here’s what they have to say about acne……

“Acne is one of the most common skin disorders which occurs in adolescence and unfortunately never seem to go away, while some occur at a later age, say late 20s and early 30s. This condition has multifactorial pathogenesis.
When oil or sebum and bacteria are clogged in the skin with dead skin cells, a pimple or acne surfaces.
That pimple is an inflammatory response that attempts to heal the skin, and when there is excessive inflammation, the resulting infection can become more difficult to manage and can result into acne scars.
Laserderm Clinics offer new, safe, effective and clinically proven treatment options for acne.”



For more information or for further discussion, you can contact them at:
Tel:  08126777778 08052777778
Address: Laserderm Clinics Ltd
                  Plot 1059 Agbagbon Close, Off Ologun Agbaje Street,
                  Off Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Or

So if you are battling with a skin disorder, book an appointment with them and let them treat you. Thank goodness they are right here in Nigeria.

Besos!

PRODUCT REVIEW | Cover Girl 'Lash blast length' mascara

Hello lovelies…..
I’ve been soooo busy lately. As in my days are packed with so much activity, and at night, when i’m supposed to blog, i just snuggle under my covers and snore away *hubby says i snore sometimes. I dunno if its true…..maybe i do when preggers sha*. Even right now as i type this post, i feel soooooooo exhausted and sleepy, and i can't count how many times my eyes have closed all by themselves. I'm sha warning you 'cos there might be 'gbagauns' (typos) in this post, if you find any, graciously ignore. Thanks you.



So i purchased this Cover Girl ‘Lash blast length’ mascara from the ‘Beauty Kink’ stand at the exhibition *shebi i said i would review my mini-haul one-by-one?*. While i was scanning the display with my eyes, what got me was the packaging *yellow is such a cheery colour*.

B 'n D Makeover | Purple 'n Green Fusion

Dearly beloved, I’ve been sooooo busy lately! But you see this money? We musto make it!

The day i did this look, Omawunmi’s song titled ‘Megbele’ was playing non-stop. I know i’m late to the parry and it’s an old song, but like my igbo people would say “Mgbe onye jiri teta n’ura bu ututu ya” (Whenever one wakes up, that’s his/her morning). I have no idea what was being said in the song but ‘Megbele’ is a jam! The bass guitar in the song was just dope! Infact ehn……….
Anyway, when i lugged up my makeup box, i had no particular look in mind, so i decided to go with the flow. All i knew was that i wanted to use my ‘Duke’ lipstain, and that i wanted an unconventional look. So, this is what i came up with…
A purple and green look…

There's no law that states that we must wear matching earings....is there?

PRODUCT REVIEW | NYKE pressed powder

Hello beauties….
One of the exhibitors at the Beauty Africa Exhibition & Conference was ‘The Beautiful Paradise’ a cosmetics, boutique and skin care store.
At their stand, i was given a pressed powder to use and review. It’s called ‘NYKE’, and it’s distributed by The Beautiful Paradise.


NYKE is an oil blotting pressed powder, and i like it because it applies smoothly over my foundation. I was given the ‘Toffee’ shade.
