Lip Service

Hey Chicas, today our favorite guest blogger Omozele, would be doing me a great favor by filling in for me. This Toronto based fashionista, will be giving us tips to achieving fabulous lips in the winter.Hope you enjoy it.

Omozele says:
I have decided to invade CT blog again with colors not that it has not already been invaded with colors but dont you just love more colors especially during winter time? I think I have found a way to add some color to my"monotonic" winter wardrobe ****drum roll ****** LIPSTICKS yes you read right LIPSTICKS 

Majority of the Lipsticks and lip liners used are drug store brands Revlon,Rimmel,Body shop, Iman and MAC.

Iman is very creamy, I dont need gloss over this. The color is rich and has a nice glossy finish.I dont need to reapply a lot towards the end of the day.

Rimmel colors are bright and fun and it last for quite a bit if you are not giving presentations, having lunches, snacks, doing a lot of talking you get my drift?
The Body shop Lip color I have does not have a lot of pigment for my skin tone, I find I have to vigorously apply the stick all over my lips to get the right amount of color for me. Filling my lips in with the lip liner still does not bring out enough color for me. I find I have to reapply more before the end of the day

There are a gabillion and one ways of applying lip sticks, lip colors, lip tars and liners please see YOUTUBE if you are not sure, I have my way, it is not special but it works for me. I line and fill in my lips with whatever liner I want to use then gently dab on the lipstick until I am satisfied :)

There you have it. Go forth and paint the world with all sorts of colors. Remember you can mix  up your lip colors.With the right brush and a creative mind, the options are limitless.

  5. great tips from a beautiful lady

  6. I really like that Pink Mauve lipstick! I'm sorry to say i don't do much in terms of makeup. I don't even line my lips before i put on lipstick- and most of the time, i just put on colored lip gloss. That's one thing i can't do without though- lip gloss.

  7. Thank you everyone :) **blush**
    @Adiya try a light lipstick, I wish I could get the Pink Mauve but it is not in stock. Start small , experiment a bit you will be surprised :). Iman has a good palette, if you are in Nigeria, Sleek makeup is not bad my mum uses their product and it works for her :)

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
