I Did my Eye Brows for the First Time! Here's a Quick Everyday Eye Brow Tutorial (for Thick Brows)

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to share this post with you because it means so much tome. Prior to September 27, 2016, I had NEVER tried doing my eyebrows. If you follow me on instagram you would have seen a preview of this post in the picture I posted the same day I carried out the experiment.   Even after watching tons of YouTube videos, I had this thing at the back of my mind that, if I carved or trimmed my eye brows, I'd end up looking like a creature of the deep. I know, crazy yeah?! When I was a little girl, I used a razor to secretly (because my mother would beat the hell out of me), trim the edge of my eye brows which pretty much didn't grow back (do not try that at home if you are a child reading this, totally dangerous ).  Well, I woke up with a zeal to learn how to do this eyebrow thing not because I felt pressured to, but because, I jut felt I was ready to give makeup a  go at this point in my life.

Three Things I have learnt from Kim Kardashian

Hello Everyone! Welcome to another segment of Lifestyle Friday :) Now, some of you already have a stereotype/biased view of this woman, I used to too. Over the years, I have taken note of Kim. Kimberly Noel Kardashian-West has a lot of flaws, and an atrocious past to some, a la sex tape. What can we say, she is shameless! However, Kimmy has some good things about her too… Well, she loves her family, and, stands up, protects, and spends on the ones she loves. Like standing up for her husband Kanye in this Taylor Swift saga . I have learnt to accept my body, and accept myself for who I am. Kim is an avid business woman. She has broken some boundaries as an entrepreneur. And, whether you like to accept it or not, her business mid is lit! She has turned virtually anything into a money dispensary. Thank you for visiting, Alexandra. This blog is founded on Proverbs 16:3 .


QU OTE OF THE DAY: Sometimes, I just look up, smile, and say, "I know that was Y ou God, thanks."-Unknown. Hi Everyone! It's another beautiful day, I hope you are enjoying yours. T oday I decided to do a hair regimen/routine post here on the blog for you , because I get asked a lot of time s what I do to maintain, and, grow my hair. Honestly, I give God all the credit for my hair texture, quality, and, length. I follow a lot of hair bloggers, and continuously do a lot of research.Have you read this pos t yet? At least, once a month(usually on the last Sunday of the Month), I wash my hair with a drying shampoo aka shampoo with sulfate. It helps strips off residue of oil and hair care products I apply. This helps to enable my hair to breathe. I also do this if I feel my hair seems choked up after a full assessment. Think of it as makeup. All the hair care products you apply are like make, and at the end of the day, you clean it off it with a wipe/cleanse
