#BACKTOSCHOOL - School Bag Essentials ft The Kate Spade Agenda

Hello guys, it's been a while. I've got a lot of hauls to share with you this September, but first I thought I'd share with you my schoolbag essentials. I don't go back to school until the last week in October, but since this is the #backtoschool season, this is the perfect time to upload this post. My bag is from H&M. I love how sturdy and spacious the bag is. It fits all my essentials perfectly.

Pre-Vacation Habits!

Hey guys! welcome back to my blog, I really appreciate it. Today I'm going to be sharing with you what I normally do before going on holiday. This post is quite apt since I'll be travelling very soon (finally!). I thought I'd make this post a bit funny by inserting meme pictures. The list is in no particular order, so let's get right into it.

Back To School - Dorm/Hostel Essentials #1

Hey guys!! Since this is the period when students move back to school or start a new school, I decided to share with you absolutely necessary items you will need in a dormitory. I'm also going to be starting in a new school later this year (Law School), and so I realised how essential this post is for you and for me. This is going to be in a series as there are a lot of items I want to share with you.

Fitness Friday - Meal Prep for Beginners

Whoop Whoop!! This is my 50th published post!! So what exactly is meal prepping?  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, essentially it is planning and prepping your meals in advance for the week.  This means cooking items in bulk and eating leftovers!  I used to hate left overs when I was younger, now I delight in their existence. Left overs are a wondrous time saver! The stress and time factor of having to cook every single meal can make adopting a healthy lifestyle ardous.  Meal prepping saves you time in the kitchen and helps keep you on track with healthy eating!

My Favourite beauty brand - NYX Wishlist

Hey guys! I wanted to blog about my favourite beauty brand, but then decided to as well make it a wishlist. I'll be travelling very soon and these items are the ones I'm hoping to stock up on from Nyx cosmetics. I see Nyx as a cheaper alternative to Mac, because like Mac, they have a variety of beauty products and thus one can create a whole look using just Nyx. Unlike Mac though, their shades do not run deeper and so I'm not going to be purchasing their foundations or powders anytime soon.

So before getting right into it, I'll like you guys to check out my sister's blog here. I featured on her blog, talking all about my everyday makeup routine and mini reviews.

Makeup of the Day - 1

Hello guys! I've missed doing beauty related posts. I decided to share with you how I achieved this look. I'm really happy with how it all came out. I actually didn't have a look in mind but when I put on this pretty floral gown, the colour pink striked me. I then decided to go for a pinky-like look!

Fitness Challenge-Week 2

Hey guys! Week two's meal plan is exactly the same as week one's. The only difference now is that an exercise routine will be incorporated. It's nothing too technical, simply do it immediately after waking up. The reason why exercise is included in this week is because, your body will be used to the diet and then will reach a plateau. The exercise will then help to boost your metabolism.

As a reminder this is the shopping list.

Two Weeks Fitness Challenge

Hello guys! As noted, on Monday, I'll be starting a fitness challenge which will run for two weeks. These past months, I've been researching thoroughly on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle without my purse suffering and after so many trials and errors, I finally found one that worked for me. Understandably, what works for a person, will not work for another, but I tried these with some friends and we all got roughly the same results.

High Street Beauty Brand 1 - Primark

Lately, I've been seeing more high street brands branching into makeup and not the generic nail polish, hand creams, pocket mirrors or makeup bags. This makes my heart sing as I love that there are now more affordable makeup with reasonable quality out there.

Giambattista Valli is an Italian  fashion designer. He is from Rome, Italy.It seems that Giambattista Valli has a thing for flowers because even his collection with M.A.C has a form of roses, fuchsia and cherry blossom. His designs usually have a flowery theme.

The European Comfort Shoe.

These shoes were a gift from my brother from Italy and they are absolutely perfect. Personally, I prefer wearing ballet flats kind of shoes as they are obviously very comfy.

Incredible Nude Lipstick for dark skinned girls // Inglot Slim-GelLipstick in Shade 49

Oooh get in here girls especially if you're dark skinned. I've found the perfect nude. For a very long time I've been on the look out for the "your lips but better" lip colour. This is the Inglot Slim-Gel Lipstick in Shade 49

Some nude colours appear quite shimmery or greyish and makes me look as if I kissed death on the

Makeup Revolution Now In Nigeria!!!

I'm sorry if this post seems a bit like I'm "fangirling", but omg MUR is in Nigeria!!!

This is one of my favourite drugstore brand in the UK. The first stand I visit when I pop into Superdrug is the MUR. They have such amazing products for the lowest prices and this past year they've really upped their game as seen in the British blogosphere.

Fitness Friday - How Can I Motivate Myself To Exercise?

These past one year, my diet has been up and down. In July 2013, I made a conscious effort to change my lifestyle and I was very successful. I went from a size 26 down to a size 14/16 in six months. From then onwards, things started going downhill. During that six months, I did not consult anyone and simply changed my diet and exercised almost everyday. You can read all about my transformation story here.

Why I don't own anything from M.A.C yet?!

I have known about M.A.C for a long time now, but I never saw the need to spend a certain amount of money for just a single product as a student especially when there were other amazing drugstore products for a quarter of the price. I would rather spend my money on products from Kiko, Maybelline, M.U.A and so on.

May Favourites

Wow! Another month gone by. I'm sure I'm the only one who's excited as the year's going by, I can't wait to be done with 2015.

On to my most loved products this past month. I experimented with a lot of products in May, and so it was quite difficult picking out my favorites. The products here are those that I particularly loved and went back for again and again.

Recent Makeup Haul

Woo ooh!! Another makeup haul. I got these bits over the past two weeks and decided to share it with you guys. I'll do reviews on each item later.

I was on a serious hunt for nude lipstick. I was wary about getting just any kind of nude lipstick, because what's nude for someone wouldn't be nude for me. I also didn't want a lipstick that was shimmery or will sit weirdly on my lips. One day , while scrolling through my Instagram page, I saw my friend sporting the perfect nude lips. It was the Inglot slim gel lipstick in shade #49.

I got this cream eyeliner in jazz black. It's the absolute best and the price is just amazing. I got mine for 1500 naira at a local zaron store in Nigeria. You can also get it at major online sites.

Diet Coke x L'oreal Paris

I was browsing through the Boots website, lusting over the new in products, when I saw this ad. I immediately scrolled over to my browser and searched for Diet Coke and L'oreal collaboration. Basically, if you buy a 50cl bottle of diet coke, you get 5 pounds off any l'oreal product.

How To Manage Oily Skin

How To Manage Oily Skin

Hello! I'm constantly on the Internet trying to find out how others control oily skin, so, I decided to write a post on how I manage my oily skin.. I personally have what is known as combination skin which means I have an oily T-zone, while my cheeks are dry. So, I'm torn between mattifying my skin and moisturizing it.

Jioney Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

Jioney Matte Liquid Lipstick
Hello guys! Liquid lipsticks are all the rave now, from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Lime Crime Velvetines, Kat Von D and so on. Liquid Lipsticks are quite popular because of their amazing coverage. Those brands I just mentioned are quite expensive, so I decided to get a cheaper version and if it works for me, I could save to splurge on the higher end ones.

Collective Makeup Haul

Hello! These past week, I've been shopping for makeup. I've just started to appreciate the art of contouring and so I decided to get a few things to add to my collection.
Collective Makeup Haul

It's been along time since I bought a bunch of makeup at once, and so I've forgotten how expensive makeup shopping can be. I've only just recovered from the dent I made in my account. I know these products are not high end or something, but as an intern, I'm not being paid and so I live on my allowance.

Outfit - Monochrome

In my last post here, I wrote about a recent haul. Well, I paired some of the outfit and decided to do a monochrome theme.

Clothing Haul - Mr Price

Hello, ever since I started working, I realized I had nothing suitable to wear to work since most of my suitable clothings are black and white. The reason behind this is that, in Nigeria, as a law student you're required to wear black and white as a form of uniform. Five years later, you can imagine the amount of black and white shirts I have acquired.

Shopping List - Makeup Edition

Hello! I recently drew up a shopping list, and so decided to share it with you guys

1. Elf Studio Makeup Mist and Set

It claims to be a radiance-boosting mist to keep make-up in place all day. I really need this, because the sun here in Nigeria is so hot, and so after a while my makeup tends to sweat off which can be so gross. This is my first time using a setting spray, so I thought I'd rather get this since it's dirt cheap.

Outfit - H&M Crop Shirt

Hello, so for work today I wore this monochrome crop shirt from H&M. I know the picture quality is terrible, I'm trying to save up to get a proper camera.

It wasn't easy styling this since my tummy is far from being toned, so I wore the shirt with an high-waist skirt from Mr Price (Africa).

What's In My Bag?

Let me use this medium to say how happy I am that I now have over 600 bloglovin followers!! That's absolutely incredible!
I love reading posts like this, as I love to see what others carry around daily and I'm also kind of nosy, so I decided to do mine. My bag's kinda big because I go to work and school everyday.

My bag is from Newlook. I got it over two years ago and I love that it still looks new. I don't think they have this particular bag in stock anymore, but you can get something similar from their store here.

5 Easy Ways To Sneak In A Workout

The most common excuse people give for not working out is "lack of time". It's true we all have priorities and responsibilities, but if you look closer, you'll discover that that you do have the time to work out, even if it's for just a few minutes- hence the purpose of this post!

Wishlist Wednesday - Shoes Edition

I personally find it very difficult to find shoes I like, because I'm a size 9 UK and a size 12 US. So, finding shoes in styles, colours and shape I like can be very difficult. But that does not stop me from lusting over shoes. I absolutely love shoes, what lady doesn't. Although I think the fact that I find it difficult to get my shoe size makes me love them more. As we all know, we always want what we cannot have.

This month, I'm loving wedges and so today's edition will be basically on wedges.

That's all for this edition. Let me know which is your favourite. x
