A Visit To Beauty and Brushes Studio

Beauty and Brushes has been a lady I have been following for a while on snapchat ,from that moment she took over a Beauty platform on snapchat called naijabestmua I knew she was talented .I have been looking to do my makeup and take picture for my blog ,with all the MUA i know something told me to trust my inner guts and work with her and I was right because everyone  commented on how good my makeup looked and I felt great.  
Beauty and Brushes which is her business name but this lovely lady goes by the name SIMI ,She was fantastic, I would recommend Beauty and Brushes to anyone.  Not only is Beauty and Brushes a lovely person, she takes great pride in her work and the outcome was amazing.

From my first inquiry I knew she was going to be awesome! She was very responsive and even asked for me to be in white preferably off the shoulder for my photos and she was right because my outfit did make my pictures stand out.
At my time at the  studio , she gave me a look that was flawless and timeless! She was very caring kept asking me if I was comfortable,if I wanted something to drink she was so concern about my watery eyes and never borthered so much about the makeup ,such a caring Lady .
The morning of my makeup /photoshoot  Beauty and Brushes  was prepared and was  on time even though I was there a little early. 
Everyone kept saying I looked amazing and they couldn’t believe how natural and  airbrushed I  looked! I was so calm all morning because I knew I was in such great hands.
My  makeup looked great all night long with hardly a touchup. I can’t recommend her enough, she is so talented at her craft and you can tell she really loves what she does. If you’re thinking of booking Beauty and Brushes , act quick before she gets fully booked as she is always fully booked .
She made me feel at ease and instilled confidence in me, which in turn made me so much more relaxed on such an important day and the results were amazing!  I can’t recommend her highly enough.  

Before I left the studio on Saturday  she told me my pictures will be ready on Monday ,I was very surprise the pictures were ready the next day 
Book Beauty and Brushes for your wedding ,graduation ,photoshoot and many more and you wouldn’t regret ,this was the best decision I made 
Her Instagram handle is  beautyandbrushes 
Snapchat is ladybakerr
Contact her by email
Thank you so much Beauty and Brushes for the amazing Job

  Thank you so much for reading

7 Top Tips To Keep You Organised

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and had a great week.

Let's talk organisation! Now, no where means am I saying that I have the whole organisation thing now...I mean, I wish I did but at the end of the day we are only human and we learn and pick up tips and tricks as we go. I have been blogging for around 10 months now and with lots of beauty and fashion tips I see around I just had to learn some basic tips and tricks of being organised 
1. Stay Healthy

this is such an obvious yet incredible important tip! I know when I was going through a little rough patch last year where I was feeling incredibly stressed out, not eating properly, and not drinking enough fluids my body was literally screaming for help. Two things that really helped me get back on form was keeping track of my fluid intake and making sure I got enough sleep every night. Firstly, hydration! What I like to do now is start my day with a jar of water and sometimes I'll add some lemon and mint for an extra kick. Staying hydrated is incredibly important as it boosts brainpower, it boosts your mood and it helps to prevent headaches. 

2. Take Some Time Out

At the beginning of each week I like to set aside some time for me to gather my thoughts and jot down a list of all the important things that I know I need to focus on that week. Throughout the week I know things will be added and removed from this but it's a great starting point to get you on track. I know if I don't do this then I don't get the most out of the time that I have. I also set aside time for Nathen for all his homework’s and just play with him 

3. Take A Break 

So, we know that taking some time out at the beginning of the week is great to kick start the week ahead...but what about breaks throughout the day? Taking a break is so important! Whether you need some time out from a hobby, your blog, your phone or even walking away from your desk at home or at work for a few minutes - it's curtail that you take care of yourself. Don't ever feel like you should't take some timeout. At the end of the day know one knows yourself better than you do and if you feel like you need it then do it. Everything will be waiting for you when you are back - whether it's 5 minutes, 5 days or 5 weeks you do you.

4. Make A List 

I write lists like it is nobodies business! I feel so much better when I can visually see everything that I need to do write down all in one place. Also, lets get real, how satisfying is it checking things off your to do list? I always feel so much more motivated. If you would like to hear about all the different apps and tools I use then please let me know! However, taking it back a little bit there is nothing I love more than  cute notebook and planner.

5. Slow & Steady Wins The Race

Once you have your list it can be so difficult to jump into a few things at once and start to feel all over the place. Been there, done that...sometimes still do that BUT you will feel so much better working down your list one by one and checking completed tasks off as you go. Don't feel like you have to complete a million things in one day - slow and steady wins the race!

6. Take 5 At The End Of The Day 

Before you stop for the day; take five minutes to review what you achieved that day and what you will need to add to your list for the next day. When you start again in the morning, you will be ready to cross off the first thing off your list even before you have started!

7. Tidy Desk = A Tidy Mind

I have sworn by this quote ever since I started my full time Job2 years ago. I am not saying that your desk needs to be spotless but simply organised. I can sometimes horde a lot of paperwork when it's not needed which means my desk and drawers can become cluttered. Having a sort through and keeping on top of this can help eliminate the chaos and keep you on track. My Vanity at home is very different to my desk at work but if you would like to see how I keep them organised please let me know.

There we have it...7 top tips for staying organised! I really hope you enjoyed this post and you walked away feeling a little more inspired. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me via my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to ready every single comment...they really make my day!

Don't forget to leave any other organisation tips below!

Lots of Love

10 Tricks To Make You Look Flawless Without Makeup

Do you spend hours every day in front of the mirror to look beautiful? While makeup is a fun way of expressing yourself and enhancing your features, you don’t need to rely on it as a crutch to define your beauty. A bare, natural look not only allows your authenticity to shine through but it’s also the best thing you can carry around. Well, is it possible to ditch your morning routine some days and still end up looking drop-dead gorgeous?
The answer is a straight out yes! I have a few simple tips for you to let your beauty shine through while you go natural ..

How To Look Beautiful Without Makeup?

Frankly speaking, it’s all about your insides and how well you look after yourself. Yes! You need to be mindful of essential aspects of your diet, your habits, your lifestyle and your skincare routine. If you have even one of these elements messed up, the effects will inevitably reflect on your health and your overall appearance. Let’s look at the tips!

  • Drink plenty of water ,I always try to finish a litre of water in the morning and a litre at night 
  • Stick to a consistent skincare routine ,I have a skincare routine on my blog 
  • Exfoliating is Key ,some of my best tools is  using my vanity planet spinning brush 2-3 a week or my Mario Badescu honey and kiwi scrub .
  • Drink Green Tea ,Squeeze out most of the water and rub the bag over your face for a few minutes for an instant glow. Yes, a green tea rinse is good for your mane as well and gives your hair a great shine. Put a few green teabags in boiling water and let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Leave it overnight
  • Give your Face a Massage once a month 
  • Deal with those stubborn pimples the right way 
  • Cut down of junk food 
  • Invest in a good night cream 
  • Embrace yourself to some DIY Face mask ,some of my favs are milk and fresh tomatoes and also applying lemon and honey as a face mask on your face 
  • Embrace your face flaws
