Being Female: 3 Things I Love

Listening to: Beat de Chez Beat (Coupe Decale) by Iboyi Pepe Ndeye I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with myself, especially considering that I am part of the female species.

The Mystery Blogger Award

I’ve always seen this mystery blogger post on so many blogs, I didn’t know I would actually get nominated! It was a bright and sunny day (no actually it wasn’t, we’re in the rainy season people) when I opened Uzzy Mami‘s latest post which piqued my interest. I read through it, smiled, and then saw […]

My Makeup Story: The Queen of Grey

I never used to wear makeup. Frankly, the reasons were not unreasonable. I was still young, and though I didn’t exactly like my face, I still found no appeal in makeup.
