B' n D makeover | 70's

Are the pictures below how they looked in the 70's?

I wonder too.....but this look had to have a name right? Loolz!

Hello dolls. So sorry for the break in transmission......i was under the weather for sometime, but don't worry, it's the good kind of sickness though *winks*

I did this look 2 days ago, and i'm only mustering the strength to post it today 'cos i couldn't bear to let a whole week go by without a post. Chukwu aju!

I read all the comments on the giveaway, and i promise to give u all what you mentioned that you want to see more of.....well.....so help me God. About the video tutorials, i'm still 'fearing' ooooo! Ok, you know what? once i get a good, easy-to-use video editor and of course a tripod for my DSLR cam, i will start working on it right away.

Video tutorials are much more easier than pictorials....i dey tell you! It's not easy to take pictures of every step of your makeup application, and then go ahead to type and explain step-by-step. Ko easy rara. So that's why i'm seriously giving the video tutorials thinghy a thought. Hey, if you know a good video editor, please let me know.

Meanwhile, here are pictures from the '70's' look.....


Yeah...tried out the Demi wispies......and i'm in looooove!

The foundation test

Gurifneen……
I think it’s time to talk about foundation and how to apply it. Overtime, i have noticed that quite a number of ladies do not know how to choose the correct foundation shade for their skin. Most ladies keep using the wrong shade thinking it’s their actual shade because some store-owner or cosmetics seller convinced them that it is their shade. A typical example would be the MaryKay bronze 507. You won’t believe how many ladies that insist bronze 507 is their shade…..even ladies darker than i am!



This is a crucial topic because many-a-times, i have seen ladies rocking faces that are either darker or lighter than their other parts (especially lighter). This should stop…..as in seriously! Your foundation should never be a shade lighter or darker than your skin complexion. Rather, it should be a perfect blend into your complexion. You gerrrit?

My ardell 'wispies' & 'fairies'

'Ello readers!
Hope you all are doing good. First of all…..i want to say a very big “THANK YOU!” To you all for all the birthday wishes and prayers. Y’all are the very best, and may God bless you one by one.
Did i have a party? Did i go out?
Errrrrrr…..no i didn’t. I was over-whelmed with the fact that i’m getting old, so i just stayed home….in bed. Dindu and Mish popped in once in a while to play though. By the way….that Mish ehn! She believes that only two people in the whole world are allowed to have birthdays…..Herself and her brother. When i announced to them a day before the 8th that it was mummy’s birthday tomorrow, Mish gave me a big wack at the back of my head and yelled “No it’s Dindu’s own birthday!”
#BlankStare
I can't come and be dragging birthday with a shild, so i meekly accepted that perhaps it was really Dindu’s ‘own’ birthday! #Sigh.
So, did i at least get a cake?......Hof kes!!! What’s a birthday without a cake? I got a yummy carrot cake from hubby who knew that i had been craving Chocolate Royale’s carrot cake for a while now.
So, yesterday, i got myself two ardell false lashes and an eyelash curler. I’ve always wanted to get myself a pair of ardell wispies lashes, but i decided to wait till my current pack of falsies (Believe me when i say they have no name….or rather, i have no idea what they are called…..it’s written in Chinese though….ok, so technically, it has a name but i don’t know what it is) finish before getting some ardell ones.
Those are the N100 MAC pencils i usually mention.....they are really nice!

B'n D makeover | Black smoke and a pop of lime

Some weekends are just .......'bleh!'

Infact, maybe it's not the weekend's fault. I think it's just me. My laziness these days ehn.......no comparisim....onweghi atu.

Well, in order not to let today go to waste, i tried out a new look christened 'Black smoke and a pop of lime'. Y'all know that i dont like my smokey looks overly smokey....so i stopped building up the black eyeshadow at a point and just blended out the smoke.

By the way, that is lime green in the inner corner.....for some reason, it wasnt vibrant enough in the pics.


'Henjoy'!

BETTER LIVING | Worship Him

Hello blog readers.

Today, i thought to share something with you which has been on my mind for sometime. If you know and love God, then this topic won't be strange to you......it's about worship.

You know that we were made to worship Him right?




There's this saying i came across somewhere....can't remember where exactly, but it says...

When you do for God what He can’t do for Himself, then He will do for you what you can’t do for yourself

I don't know if God can worship Himself or not, but i do know that it is what we are meant to do. It is our major life-purpose. Same way, we definately can't bless ourselves, that's why we ask God to do that for us. True worship comes from the heart.... a pure heart. You can't worship God from a filthy heart filled with bitterness and what else have you. Worship means reverent love and devotion.

Why do you worship Him? Is it because of what He has given to you or just because of whom He is? These questions brings us to two kinds of worship i have discovered

·        Worship because of what God has done
·        Worship because of whom He is

It is very easy to worship God because of what He has done for you. You can easily worsip Him for His many blessings and all He has given you....but what about the other kind of worship which is just worshipping and adoring Him just for the fact that He is God, the maker of the universe, the I am that I am, Jehovah Tsidkenu, yaweh, Jireh, Shammah, Shalom, Elshaddai, Nissi, Elohim, Adonai, Ebenezer (i could go on and on). To me, that is just the purest kind of worship


Now, how do you worship God?

Here are some ways.......

You can worship God in song....through singing to Him from your heart. You can devote a morning devotion session to worshipping God through songs from your heart. Here's what Psalm 95:1 says:


“Come let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation”

Another way to worship God is through prayer. God loves it when we worshsip Him in devoted, heart-felt prayers. If you start your day with a worship-filled prayer, you will feel so filled with God's spirit all day long. Psalm 27:8 says:

 “My heart says of you ‘seek His face!’ Your face Lord i will seek”

Did you know that giving is a form of worship? I mean giving offerings to God, and also giving to others in love. Hebrews 13:16 has this to say:


“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God”

If you genuinely love God, you will just want to worship him every chance you get. You would frequently feel that urge in your spirit to go to your maker in a state of worship (In your car, while working, any free time you get, etc. You don't have to light candles, wear a white robe and hum under your breath) and the joy you would feel while doing that is indescribable. No wonder the bible said..

In His presence is fullness of joy

Worship Him with all your heart and soul today....just worship Him because He's God.

B .n D makeover

Beautiful people......

It;s been a while....hope y'all are good?

I'm on a well-deserved break before my next batch of students start, but i managed to do a new look now that i have a lot of time on my hands. I woke up this morning and had this picture in my head, but unfortunately, i have no name for it.
