Bella Naija Feature| 6 beauty uses of Turmeric No One Told You About

This article was originally published here on Bella Naija as one of the articles I contributed to their Beauty section. 

You may or may not have heard of the plant called Turmeric that grows wildly in South & South East Asia. It has been used for thousands of years in Asia as a cooking spice and even for medicinal purposes. If you are a fan of Indian food like I am, you will have eaten many a turmeric-laced curries.
We are not focusing on curry today though, I’m sharing some of the powerful beauty powers of Turmeric and how you can incorporate it into your beauty regime.

Review | Bvlgari Goldea Perfume

.A few posts ago (here)  I mentioned my aversion for variety when it comes to perfumes. This is slowly changing though as I have started to discover one or two new scents that I really like. So imagine my delight when I was recently gifted the new Bvlgari Goldea perfume! Like I promised on Instagram (@shelovesthefinerthings) here are my thoughts...

What In The World is Texlaxing?

This is the PG-13 version of the response I get from people every time I tell them that my hair is texlaxed! I didn't realize that save for those of us in the Healthy Hair Journey (HHJ) crazed cult, not many people have even heard about the term texlaxing so I decided to do a post on it.

Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2015: Recap, Favourites and OOTDs

This year was the first time I participated fully in the Lagos Fashion and Design Week which has been running for 5 years now. I attended all four shows and I had an absolutely amazing time. I shared a lot on Snapchat (yewandesoba) and Instagram (shelovesthefinerthings) but I decided to do a recap of my favourite designers from the week so I don't bore you guys with thousands of pictures…

Day 1

Tifanny Amber came to conquer on Day 1…All of her pieces were fabulous but these are my top 3 picks. 

Day 2

Day 2 was the best day of fashion week for me. Many of the designers really brought their A-Game with their collections and the show…Hard to pick but these were my favs...

Ejiro Amos Tafiri

Wanger Ayu

Maki Oh
Orente Ayaba
Akpos Okudu

Akpos Okudu was in first place on day 2! Her pieces were so breathtakingly beautiful, girly and whimsical. The show literally transported everyone to LaLa Land. 5 stars for Akpos! 

Day 3

The fabulous fashion continued on Day 3 with my absolute favourite of the night being Andrea Iyamah's swimwear collection! Every single item was fireeee *insert fire emoji*

Toju Foyeh 
Andrea Iyamah

Day 4

I couldn't watch all the shows on Day 4 because I got there really late but my two favs for the night were I Am Isigo (Colourful and Creative) and Sisiano (Clean and Minimalistic). 

I Am Isigo

What I Wore

Day 1: Blouse and Pants from Eve & Tribe

Day 2: Blouse and Skirt from Eve & Tribe
Day 3: Top and Pants from Maju
Day 4: Top from H & M, Skirt from Dos Clothing Store

#LFDW2015 was an all round amazing time and I must say that the Nigerian fashion industry has come a very long way. Makes me feel really really proud! . I hope you guys enjoyed my recap! :-) 

Which of my four outfit looks is your favourite? 

Peace and Love, 


P.S Shout out to a great photographer, Richy Anazia for these outfit shots!

YSL Beauty Haul & Review

I shared on my Instagram that YSL Beauty was now in Nigeria and a few people got really excited ti hear that! I promised to share a review of products I got and I started by reviewing the YSL Black Opium Perfume. Read here if you missed it.

Today I'm reviewing four makeup products from the brand- the Couture Palette 5 Couleurs, Couture Kajal Eye Pencil, Rouge Pur Lipstick and the Volupte Tint-In-Oil.  The products in general speak LUXURY…The gold and silver packaging makes them them look like top quality products but are they really?

10 Beauty Products I'm Currently Loving

Today's post is just a short and sweet round up of my current beauty favourites.

1) LimeCrime Liquid Lipstick in Salem is my absolute favourite lip product at the moment. The chocolate brown shade is my vibe now and it's perfect for both day and nightie! If I was stuck on an island and could only take one lip product, Salem would be it!

Introducing Sure Gifts and a Giveaway!

Have you guys ever heard of The Five Love Languages? If you haven't you should totally do the test here and find out what your love languages are. It is so important to understand yours and your significant other's, it puts a lot of things into perspective in the relationship. 

I brought this up because one of my love languages is "Receiving Gifts" but before you nail me to the cross and crucify me for being "materialistic", hear me out. Gifts (both giving and receiving) for me is not so much the value of the item but the thought process behind them. I love to see that my partner thought about me and put in the work to find me something that makes me happy. Nothing says "love" more than that to me.
