How to Remove Makeup from Face | Before and After Makeup of a Nigerian Beauty Blogger

Quote of the day:  “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing  prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy  of the  Lord  is your strength.”- Nehemiah 8:10. Hi guys! If you're checking this post out from my home page click on it! Today, is all about how I remove my makeup . While the process of putting on makeup can sometimes be therapeutic for me, removing it can be a struggle at times. The last thing anyone needs is to be callous with makeup bu letting it sleep on your face (or body CC Kim Kardashian's body makeup ). Previously, I swore by Neutrogena wipes but with the amount of fake in the market, and taking into consideration how my skin is I resolved to using plain hypoallergenic baby wipes. Recently, while shopping for skincare products I discovered the Rosewater and glycerin I used in this video. I bought it for N500 (I know it's a good bargain for how great it is on my face).

Dear Law Student 4 || Life Tips for Law School Students by Chukwuemeka Ginikanwa

Hi everybody, welcome to this weeks post! You can check out last week's post if you missed it here . This week, one of my favorite writers (I promise I'm not fanning out) Chukwuemeka is contributing. I met him while I was a university student. Emeka reminds me of Chimamanda and Achebe . He writes with such finesse, and his talent is hard to miss. I hope you enjoy what school was like for him. Enjoy!  I basically slept and woke up and university was over. All of a sudden, the memories became very faint. Things I thought I had achieved became pale. Nothing. They tasted like ash in my mouth. Final year at the University of Nigeria came with rather too many struggles. Finance was very tight. There were classes that I hardly understood what they were for. There was a Project to write. The deadline was close by and I had no laptop and of course, no money to use a Business Centre. Then they released the exam time table with quizzes in between. It was a mad house in my he

Happy New Month! Dear Law Student 2: My Law School Experience

Hey guys! How are you doing? What'your week looking like? Personally, I can finally tick " Visit Ibadan " off my buck list. In last weeks post  here  my former roommate Chidera discussed some of her experiences as a student of the Nigerian Law school.  This week she shares her experience with her law school roommates, her study pattern, fellowship and so on. Continued from last week. ... it became very necessary. We had been pre-forwarded our task for the day. After the morning session of lectures, we went on a break and came back for the afternoon session to solve the task. This session was handled by Mr Kanu, a very brilliant lecturer who added humor to his teaching. Each group came out to present and answer questions. How this process went varied. If Mr Kanu was the one asking questions, then you had to be ready to give your 100 because his questions were brain twisting. This was basically the routine for the 17 weeks of lectures.  Tuesday was for civil litig
