Currently Loving || Mon Guerlain Perfume Review

Friday, 31 March 2017
I hardly do perfume reviews but I'm making an exception with this Mon guerlain perfume review and hopefully more to come because if there's one other thing you should know about me (that I didn't share in my 15 random facts about me post), it is that I LOVE perfumes! I love receiving them, love sniffing them, love everything about them! Who wouldn't anyways? Smelling good is such a morale booster, quote me anywhere.
I plan to share my top five favourite perfumes in another post soon but for this post I'll be talking about and doing a quick review of my current scent and new love - Guerlain's new women's perfume : Mon Guerlain.

Just a quick fun fact because I was mind blown when I realized this : Guerlain is one of the oldest perfume, skincare and cosmetic house in the world. It is a parisian brand and has been in business since 1828 (If that ain't goals, I really don't know what is!)

I was super excited to receive a complimentary bottle of the Mon Guerlain perfume- their latest women's fragrance. I honestly wasn't going to do a full review on it because when I first got it, I took a quick whiff and wasn't so sure how I felt about the scent but after using it for a day, I fell in love! So much that I tweeted about how good I smell the other day. Lol
Now, I'm not a huge fan of women's perfume. Whenever I think of female perfumes, I immediately think of something floral-fruity that wouldn't last the day. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mon Guerlain isn't fruity or overly sweet which I guess is because of the base of sandal wood in it. It has this clean, fresh Powdery scent that I really like and makes me feel sexy (Yes I said it!) 
The longevity of this scent was another pleasant surprise that makes it get into my good books. It lasts through the day, clings to my clothes, and I like that I can still catch whiffs of it through the air whenever I move. 

Finding the right word to describe it wasn't easy but I'll just say that if you're a fan of feminine perfumes that aren't your typical sweet smelling fragrance but instead has that clean sophisticated yet feminine scent and lasts all day long, then Mon guerlain will be just right for you.
The only thing I'm not so crazy about is the packaging because frankly, I've seen more exciting perfume bottle designs. I love to collect perfume bottles so I'm really sold by unique looking ones but one thing this particular bottle has that others don't have is my name engraved on it - Super cool stuff!!! I'm kind of obsessed with my name and a sucker for personalized gifts and I think it was so thoughtful of them to have it customized for me.

This is the very first perfume from Guerlain that I've used and I find it hard to believe that I am only just discovering the awesomeness that is this brand. I will definitely be giving them a try from now on and Mon Guerlain gets a fat green tick from me! You can purchase it at any Ess
enza store in Lagos and all perfume stores nationwide

Ever used any Guerlain Perfume/Product before? What type of perfumes are you into - Feminine, Masculine?  And what perfume makes you feel flirty? if you've used Mon Guerlain, let me know what your thoughts are!

Review || Hello Food NG.

Thursday, 30 April 2015
I bet you guys don't know this but if there's anything I love more than you all that steady visit my blog, its food!
I actually sit in class sometimes daydreaming of what I'll like to eat when I get home.
Some days, I really want to get something (mostly KFC and shawarma tbh) but because my laziness kind of overrules my love for food, I just stay there thinking of a way to get it without moving an inch and finally end up not getting anything. So when I heard of hello food, an online food hub that saves you the stress by acting as a middle man between you and your favorite restaurants, I had to check it out!
I was so happy to see my favorite shawarma joint (Southern Delicacies) around my area listed in their restaurants so I ordered shawarma.

Here are a few things I like about Hello Food.

- The site is really easy to navigate. All you have to do is enter your location, select what you want and follow the instructions. I made my order within minutes.

- They have a variety of food options and restaurants - both for local food, chinese and fast food lovers.

- Their customer service is quite good. Once I placed my order, I got a text, call and an email immediately to confirm and a promise that they have told Southern Delicacies in no uncertain terms that I'm a busy, hungry, VIP customer and I'll get my food really quick (The exact words they used.lol).
Let me tell you why that's important to me. I have a hate-love relationship with southern delicacy because even though their shawarma is goood, they take tooo long to deliver and I have to keep calling to ask how far.
Guess what? They delivered within the thirty minutes hello food promised me! Lool. Smh

- They don't add any extra costs to the food. i.e you'll get it for the same price you would if you had gone to the place yourself.

I'm sure I'll be using them again. I just pray I don't finish my money on fast food because tbh my laziness to go get food saved me a lot of money. Lol
Have you ever tried Hello food?

Oh and just for fun plus since we're talking about food, what's your favourite food?

House Of Tara - Jemila

Saturday, 6 September 2014
Sometime early this year, I won some House of Tara products from a giveaway ( there is nothing like free stuff to be honest #dontjudgeme). I got a lipstick, silver eyeshadow, blush, lipstain and lip pencil (which isn't in the picture because it suddenly developed legs and dissapeared) .
I'm not really a make up person so the blush is still untouched, I use the eye shadow once in a while to line my inner eye but the lipstick is all I'm about in this post! I listed this lipstick as one of my current favourite things
Its one of the House Of Tara matte range lipsticks and this one is called 'Jemila'. It is a gorgeous red lipstick and people keep asking me if its ruby woo.lol.
You know what they say : "You're never fully dressed without a red lipstick" . Okay nobody says that but you get my point.
APPLICATION : This lipstick is easy to apply, goes on smoothly and lasts for a long time.
PRICE : 1400 - 1500 Naira
WHERE TO BUY : House of Tara outlets (there is one in the surulere mall), Jumia.

I saw a couple of others in the matte lip range on Dinma's blog and the Tejuosho is another lipstick that is giving me so much life! I definitely need to get it.

Have you tried any of the House of Tara matte lipsticks? Which was your favourite?

T.I Nathan || The Aesthetic Man

Sunday, 22 December 2013
I'm always going on about my friend Tayo and for this fact i expect you guys to be slightly if not fully acquainted with him by now. If you aren't, he's the dude in this "post" and this one too.
Remember when I told you he has a menswear line? No? Okay, you might have to re read some of those posts. ;)
He does and I can proudly call him " a rising star". Soon, he'll be a big deal and all. Just watch and see. He released his first collection sometime early this year which I'm pleased to report was well received by the fashion community here in gidi Lagos as he has dressed IK Osakioduwa, Sarz, Skales, Wole Ojo et al and you can check it out here.
He just released his second collection themed "The Aesthetic Man" and even though I'm still lusting over some of the print shirts in his previous collection *side eye*, i think I've found new stuffs to lust over!


I really like the playful and casual nature of the collection and i'm not just saying this because he's my friend. Nope.

If you like what you are seeing, you can get at him at Tayo_nat@yahoo.com

Whatchyu feel?

P.S - I have another give away coming up soon! :D :D

FASHPA

Wednesday, 11 December 2013
I would have loved to tell you all about the amazing birthday weekend I had and put up a picture of my equally amazing cake. But no! Today's post is about something entirely different 
My package from Fashpa arrived just yesterday and I've been beyond excited. Mostly because I don't really have many dressy dresses in my closet but i'm working on changing that and the dress i got from them is a perfect start. I got this sinful dress which now that I think about it would have been perfect as a birthday outfit (but then I never do all that birthday senrenre stuff)
   

What's Fashpa?
Fashpa is a recently established online fashion store here in Nigeria which stocks the latest trends in clothing items, shoes, accessories and beauty products, all for different occasions. Their items range from international brands such as Zara, Topshop and Asos to local designers and boutiques.

Every month, they create a lookbook to update customers on the latest trends and for the month of December they have created a lookbook called 'LUSH GAL' which is themed with bold prints of leopard skin, Aztec prints and polka dots, bold colours and statement jewelry that can help you transition from great day to night looks

Check out the lookbook below and start shopping!! (Trust me, their stuffs are pretty affordable. I would know, i can be ijebu when it comes to shopping :| )

No! I'm not showing you the dress i got from them just yet. Not even a sneak peak, but i really can't wait to rock it (I'll be looking like one hotstuff in it B-))

Oh and their delivery was fassttttttt! Like I literally had to jump out of bed, use a mouth wash, throw on a gown and rush down so I wouldn't keep the dude waiting. I mean I just confirmed my order barely an hour before the package arrived.  I was super impressed and the packaging was really nice plus i got a complimentary sunshades.
                                           
Check them out.

Fashion Shortlisted Review || OOTD

Friday, 11 October 2013
I'm a sucker for turbans and head wraps, and that means i'm always buying and acquiring new scarves. So when I got contacted by the good people from fashion shortlisted to do a scarf review, of course I accepted.
  

Fashion Shortlisted is an online web-store that exclusively sells custom-made digitally printed designer silk scarves. I got to choose the design I wanted and also how I wanted it customized . There were so many amazing prints to pick from that my brain froze (that's what happens when I have a variety of equally awesome things to pick from) so i had my friend make the choice for me.
My scarf came some days later (which was quite impressive) in this really cute package, I would have taken a picture of it if my mum didn't decide to tear it open.
I was really satisfied with the scarf design and material quality. Oh and it had my name customized on it ^_^

My only problem is that the scarf was really big, so i was a bit confused on how i was going to use it at first but i finally got some ideas..
Shalla  Shout out to my muslim sisters, isnt this just perfect? :D
Of course i just had to use it as a turban too, what were you expecting?
This was my outfit for today to school. Well, i later took off the turban and changed to brown sandals and my brown bag

I'm totally in love with my scarf , isn't it just so pretty?
You can check out the other amazing designs and get yours from www.fashionshortlisted.com and don't forget you can also have it customized with whatever name you want :))
