The Look On Sunday


Hello and welcome to my blog. This is the look I took to church last Sunday. Before that let me give you some of the spiritual food I received.

Today's sermon was very relevant to everyone; believer or not. The title of the sermon was "Making the most of life in a fallen world (under the sun)".

The point was to be prepared for the unexpected in life. The reality of everything is, we will all die one day but the believers faith in Christ Jesus will mean that they will not suffer the second death. It's a fact that believer and unbeliever alike die one either from illness, unexpected accident or old age. So everyone must be prepared. Every decision has to be made while you are alive because once you die it will be too late.

The look

For my foundation, I used my Revlon colorstay foundation in mocha. This foundation is for oil and combination skin and also for those with a cooler skin tone. I am more of warm so there was a slight difference between my chest and face. I bought two of these from feel unique website a little over a year ago.  It was very light and my skin was not oil through out the time I wore it. 




I used Barry M storm meteor and MUA cosmetics to achieve the eye shadow look. The dazzling navy blue in the middle of my lid is from mac cosmestics. I have been using mac cosmetic concealer for a long time and just to brighten up my under eye a bit I use L. A girl pro in toffee. I was using Iamn eyebrow pencil however I lost it so I have replaced it with Rimmel London's dark brown eyebrow pencil until I amass enough money to buy a new one. 



I had my hair in high bun as it needs washing. I took out my braids last FridayI was late for church so I had to rush my eye shadow makeup so it didn't turn out exactly how I wanted. I will try and recreate again. 



I have created a similar look before using the Barry M metor storm pallette and this above picture was the result. 

I hope you can get some inspiration from this look. 

Until next time, it's bye from me

I Made My First Wig With Lace Closure

Hello and welcome to my blog. In this post I will be writing about some of the things I have been up to, particularly things to do with hair.
I had this routine where I braided my hair and kept it for about a maximum of 3 months, took it down, treated my scalp and then follow the cycle again.
To be honest I was a bit tired of this process as it took a little over 10 hours to braid the hair and the thought of taking it down was a bit daunting too.

The initial plan was to have a friend construct a wig for me however because she lives a bit too far from me I gather this courage and awoke the wild side of me to fantasize about the idea of making my own wig.


And I did 😁. I purchased the equipment from aliexpress.com together with two set of hair:  1) Two 14 inches bundles and a 12inches  closure; 2) Three 10 inches bundles and 8 inches closure. I bought both of these from aliexpress. 


To be able to do this I watched a few videos from peakmill, estelive and Ashley Bedeck on YouTube. I made what I…

Thrifted Transformation Project: Process

Hello and welcome. It has been a while since I made a post. I promise to keep the post coming.

In this post I am introducing you to an outfit I put together. The top part of the outfit is made with Kente cloth which is a traditional Ghanaian print. This was a piece of cloth that came with a dress my grandad made for me a few years back. I am having to thrift that dress and will reveal it soon.


I watched YouTube to replicate a pattern however after putting it together I didn't like it as I felt it was too revealing and was thinking of throwing it away or taking it apart and using it for something else until I had an epiphany 😂. (I've been wanting to use this word for some time now so here goes). I wanted to wear it as a top with various skirts. 

I also had a few scuba fabrics I bought from ebay I wanted to make some skirt out of it to wear with the top. I bought lining for the scuba skirt however it didn't arrive so my scuba project has been delayed and I'm not sure i…

The Natural Hair Journey Continues: Box Braiding My Own Hair

Hello and welcome. This is a hair post. I remember in secondary school, my friends would corn row my hair when my hair is not in braids. I wore braids most of the time and due to this my hair grew really long. My mum would usually braid my hair and so I rarely went to the hairstylist to plait my hair.



In recent years I have been braiding my own hair. Partly due to the fact that I cannot be bothered to go and get it done. The thought of sitting for so long just haunts me and hurts my ever growing butt * sweeps hair to side. Also I notice that 
In addition to this, although it does not look uber professional its cheap because I only have to buy the hair. I usually keep it in for about 2 months and I prefer not to over manipulate the hair. 







When I first went natural I went to a lady to cornrow my hair and she put a hot comb through my precious natural hair like the world was at her mercy. From then I decided to do my own hair because it seemed like many hairdressers didn't know how …
