Allowing yourself to change

Heyyyyy guys so i have been MIA for a abit because i have had alot going on, those who don’t know i have two 9 months old twins who keep me busy but one has not been well so i had to concentrate on my baby.

So during this unplanned little break i started thinking about how i can make my vlogs and blog posts better because am all about change and providing good content.

So my vlog channel was started because i wanted to record my family life and share it with the world and i have done this for the last 3 years now but since the twins were born i don’t venture out much by myself because it’s not easy being out with two 9 months babies so i normally just drop my older children to school and get back home which doesn’t leave much to vlog.

My blog has always been about fashion, beauty and lifestyle which i loved and enjoyed doing but i wanted to focus on topics am really passionate about and i have decided to focus on fashion (specifically affordable fashion) as am a sucker for it lol and lifestyle which includes motivation posts because we all need a little push and motivational words sometimes.

I will be doing OOTD posts but they will not all be new garments but more of how i have put my day outfit together which will also be on my YouTube channel, am not sure about how often i will be uploading but i will work on it as i go.

I am excited about the new direction of my blog/vlog and i hope you don’t mind the new change and you will continue to enjoy the content.

“MAKEUP IS SELF- CONFIDENCE APPLIED DIRECTLY TO THE FACE”

(NOT SPONSORED)

Since I started wearing make up and taking care of my skin I have always been a minimal product usage kind of girl, I have never been the type to change my products or yoyo with different ones because the ones I used worked fine.

When I lived at home with my mum I always just used what she bought which was usually Vaseline lol. We use to use Vaseline for basically everything! from body to feet and of course on the lips. Since I got married I started testing out different beauty products because I wanted a change as I was grown and all lol and at one point I would have so many products which I would have used for only a couple times just sitting there collecting dust.

For the last few years I found the products that work for me and I have stuck to them and my skin has thanked me for that still working with minimal products.

The one product I have religiously used continuously over many years now is the Garnier body intensive 7 days lotion in Shea butter. I have tried many body lotions trying to find one that worked for my body and they all would either make my skin dry like the dessert, oily or just look dead. But since I started using the Garnier lotion for very dry skin (though my body is not that dry) my skin is so soft and the softness lasts till the next day when I have a bath. It is also fast absorbing so you wont be there getting  a work out putting lotion on your body. Looking at the ingredients it contains Shea butter of course, water which is always great for your body, olive fruit oil, palm oil, mineral oil and many other ingredients but my point is having all these oils in one bottle has to make ones body soft and smooth.

For moisturing my face I use three products at the moment one is Nivea moisturising cream. Their main ingredients are Jojoba oil which is very moisturing and Vitamin E which helps with to protect cells ( I know I have gone all scientific lol). I use this cream at night before I go bed which helps keep my skin soft through out the night even in winter time when I wake up my skin still feels soft and looks dewy. The other product is B Restored day cream now I have only just started using this product not too long ago but let me tell you something, it is very mosturising and quite thick which I think is needed because weather seasons like winter and summer can make your skin drier than usual so you need something thick to add extra moisture. Lastly for my face I use Superdrug Optimum instant anti-wrinkle eye cream for under my eyes. I use it in the morning and evening and I have found that once I start rubbing it into my eye area I can see the lines reduce! which am not gonna lie I was skeptical if it would do anything ( am always skeptical with such things) but it done something so I will see if it will reduce the appearance of the lines more over time.

For washing my face I have been using Nip Fab exfoliate which has Glycolic and B. Revealed Glycolic cleansing peel. Both these products have Glycolic Acid in them which helps treat uneven skin,acne,oily skin etc. It basically does what it says on the tin, after using any of these products I can see and feel my skin is clean and no residue of dirt or makeup.

So as you see I really do not use a lot of products for my face or body but I don’t really think you need to use a lot of stuff on your skin, you just have to find what works for you and stick to it and your skin will thank you for it.

So what product do you swear by? let me know.

NEW ADDITION

I would like to introduce our new bundles of joy, Mr Uriyah and Miss Bella born 7 weeks ago.

What a WOW!these last 7 weeks have been I still cant believe I carried twins and have twins! They are such a blessing. The delivery was full of heartache, happiness, sadness, tears….. I made a vlog about the delivery so go check it out as i will be here forever if I try to type it out lol. (Link 👉 https://youtu.be/U4I6uno8R5w) but that’s what I have been doing the last 7 weeks, taking care of these babas and trying to get in some kind of routine. I am also back to doing school runs which I was scared of doing as I was afraid the twins would end up both crying and I would not be able to soothe them (which they have done a couple of times lol) but l was able to handle it! 💪😏

Dont forget to check out the vlogs and follow us on our social medias to keep up to date with us.

I GRADUATED!!!!!!!

Hey loves hope you are all well. So last week Tuesday 11th I graduated from university with Honours!!!! like what???!!!, I never thought I would get there or that I could do it. I had to redo 3 assignments!! in about a month!. So when I found out I had to redo 3 assignments which included my dissertation, I honestly could not take it anymore, my energy levels were so low as well as my motivation levels. I cried then I got angry not at me but at the tutors because they checked the assignment prier to hand in date and they gave them the go ahead not to fail I was just gobsmacked. I gave and said I don’t care anymore I do not want to graduate…….. the usual reactions when you have given all you can and its still not good enough.

But after talking to my family and friends and sleeping on it I decided to push myself and get my degree because if I didn’t I would have wasted 3 years for what? and I had to show my babies that no matter the obstacles you can still do it. So I put my head down and got them done and handed in before my family holiday to Uganda. When we came back it was back to reality to find out the results of my resits. I passed all of them being that they are resits they are capped at 40%  but with my dissertation they gave me 42%! I could not believe it, after ll the changes they told me to make (which I made for the resit) they still gave me 42% which left me so scared and stressed because it had to go to moderation for the final marks. So I prayed and left it in Gods hands.

Thankfully they did not put my marks down ( if they did I would have failed again and had to redo a whole year!!) and I graduated with a third Honours!!!!

 

I am still processing it how I done it and got through it. Being a mother it was really difficult finding time to study and do the assignments but I was able to organise myself and with the help of my hubby we got there. Its been  crazy and manic but I am glad I did it and on the way I made some lovely friends who together helped each other through it all.

Moral of the story, if you work hard enough for something,you will almost certainly get there.
