THE ART OF MAXIMISING ::: You Can Wear that Blouse Again for the Holiday Season.

 

Maximising your closet is an art. When you learn the art of maximising your closet, you do not only have what to wear all the time, you save yourself “tonnes” and “tonnes” of money. As we all know, there is nothing as such as too much savings – on “rainy days” (difficult time) in your life, your savings may be the only option you have to bank on. 

Finding what to wear is one, saving money is another BUT the utmost is saving yourself TIME because time is more precious than money. If you do not always have to shop, you always have time to do more important things…

Flawless Foundation Routine With NO Primer – Here’s Exactly What I Did

From time to time I love to try out something new and all the time when it works, I share my findings with you. You are very welcome :). As you know already, I do not wear foundation daily so as for my skin to have the chance to breath and also for me not to clog up my pores which can lead to skin dullness and breakouts. However, on days when I do not wear foundations, I wear some primer and then follow with my translucent powder or just my setting powder and then set it with my Mac’s fix plus and off I go for the day. So, I ran out of my foundation primer, the oil-free Lancome La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer Smoothing Effect on a day when I needed to wear foundation so I decided to try out something new and it worked. Let’s checked it out.

Follow Your Own Path (Motivation for Monday)

 

The past few weeks was quite busy for me but I wouldn’t change anything because it was all good. You all know I shared with you that my last wish on my old Vision Board was for my Mum to visit. Yep. this dream has now come true. Glory to God. Me, my husband and children spent quality time with Mum, we got the chance to take care of her, celebrated her birthday and enjoyed her company generally. Mum has now returned to Lagos-Nigeria and all is well with her. I must say I miss her and I am a little bit cranky that she is no more here with us. Don’t even dare call me Mummy’s girl 🙂 Sincerely, I just love seeing her in the morning before heading to work and seeing her when I return in the evening. I can’t wait for her to return again soon. Enough about me for now. So, if you are believing God for anything, don’t worry, it may seem delayed BUT TRUST me, it will eventually come to pass. Have you considered putting your wish on your Vision Board? Vision Boards are powerful and they work if you follow through and do your own part……

You Are Not What You’ve Been Through (Motivation for Monday)

When we go through challenges in life, a lot of us tend not to see ourselves beyond where we are. We blame ourselves, we belittle ourselves and a lot of times, a lot of us just stay down with no plan of getting up again from our setbacks. Staying down is easy because just anyone can stay down. However, it takes boldness, courage, determination and self-motivation to rise again after a set back. We have to understand that, the only way we can rise again after a setback is that we must do whatever it takes to rise again. Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you to see yourself beyond where you are now and what you may have gone through.

 

What Do You Want? (Motivation for Monday)

Many times, I come across so many people who ask me the very old age question, “What should I do”? Should I do this or that or go this way or that way? Others ask me if I can help them? When I get this question of “help me”, I still end up having to ask, “What do you want” because sincerely, if I do not know what you need help with, I can’t help you. That is the truth!  And nobody can help you if you do not know what you want. This is the honest truth. It is okay not to be sure or clear but you MUST have an idea of what is it you want.

Today on Motivation for Monday, I will be sharing TIPS on how to know what you want so you can live a meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful life.

How to Know If You Are Fulfilling Purpose (Motivation for Monday)

Nearly every week, I change the DP on my WhatsApp with snap shot of feedback(s) I get from different people who have come in contact with my work. A lot of times, it is some sort of testimonial or feedback saying, “how much what I do has helped them” or “how my book has helped them” or “how a course I created has helped them” or “how a post I wrote on Facebook or somewhere else has helped them” etc.  I personally do this to remind myself of how far I have come on my journey and how much impact I make daily with what I do but most importantly as a reminder to be thankful to God for giving me the gifts I use to make such an impact.

 

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on “How to Know If You Fulfilling Your Purpose”……….

 

DIY PEDICURE IN 5 MINUTES

I have been doing my pedicure for a long time now. I would say it became one of my DIY (do it yourself) beauty routines when I moved to Europe. Not only does getting my pedicure done myself save me time, it has saves me tonnes of money. Let’s face it, a round of pedicure costs anywhere between 40 to 60 euros, so if you get pedicure once a month, you would have spent a total of 480 /  720  euros a year. That in my humble opinion is a lot of money especially if you are saving for a specific need or project or simply, if you are on a budget.

Well, you don’t have to worry about paying that much anymore. Today, I have a step by step guide on how you can do your own pedicure by yourself at home. Let’s have a look………
