Outfit of the day (OOTD)

This out fit was originally put together by me around Christmas last year but I was going through my archives and saw it again and I was like "this actually looks really nice" so I decided to just leave it here 😋 .details of the out fit would be mentioned below. There's something about hounds tooth prints that drive me crazy.
     These are not the clearest pictures but please bear with me.
About the outfit:
Dress: Select
Shoes: New look
Jacket: unknown source
    So I paired a hounds tooth print dress with simple black ankle boots   and threw a jacket on top and with a littlebit of jewellery the look came alive. This look was really effortless and I think it'll  be great for nights out with friends or a date. Tell me what you guys think about my look. Bye loves...


All I see here is beauty personified. I absolutely loved this collaboration with @  I just tried to create a really soft but still glam look. I loved how innocent she looked yet mature. This still remains one of my fave looks this year and yes photography by @ 😚. I hope you guys like it too, have a great day loves and anticipate new blog updates very soon ciao.

My skin care routine💯

Ok guys so I've been using a couple of products (mainly herbal) for my skin and the results have been awesome.

    1. ACV(apple cider vinegar) :- is a really good skin toner, it can be a bit harsh tho so i dilute mine with water and a little honey. I apply it only at night because i feel like thats when it works the most plus i put on make up in the morning and I'm not sure how my skin would react with much chemicals all at once.
    2. Shea butter:- shea butter has a really wide range of uses, it can be used to: 

  • repair dry skin
  • clear eczema
  • heal skin allergies, clear sunburns, wrinkles and blemishes to mention a few. So, with that said i guess its quite evident why i use shea butter on my skin 😁.  

  1. EXTRACT:- This soap is made from papaya and calamansi. I discovered this product in 2014 from my friend; i tried it for a while but i was too scared to continue because i thought it'd make me lighter in complexion. But this year i saw a lot of reviews on it online and i decided to try it and it works perfectly for fading dark spots I've used it for a short while now and the results are nice. Yes it is a lightening soap but so far i don't think it lightens dark skin or at least it didn't lighten mine or my friends' and other dark skin people who put out their reviews online.    
  2. Bio oil:- While using this product you must learn to be patient because it works gradually it can take a month before you see a result depending on your skin type but one thing is certain, it works 💯. It fades spots, scars and stretch marks.
  3. Cucumber:- this is not something i don't regularly make use of, but when i have the chance to i do. It revives the eyes, supplies lots of minerals that are good for the skin + its delicious and healthy too.
Well thats all about my skincare routine, Its really not difficult to follow and it works. I hope this post is the answer to someones skin problems. lots of love guys 💕... bye.

Work In Progress II


 To be complacent simply means to be self satisfied. Being self satisfied is not a bad thing i mean if you achieve all the goals you set out to achieve for the day you have the right to be satisfied with yourself but the aspect I'm referring to is when you become too complacent and then become stagnant      because you feel like you have arrived. the truth is nobody really arrives there is no point in life when one feels 'oo i am ok i don't want anything again' the reason being is that the human wants are insatiable. In as much as being paranoid is not always the best but in this case some level of paranoia is allowed NB: i am not saying that it is good to be paranoid I'm just saying that a little paranoia won't hurt.
  INDOLENCE:basically just being lazy; bottom line set your priorities straight and work hard if not, your life would be a mess😐

Work In Progress

     Okay so i decided to write about this because i got inspired  by someone. Anyway Let me start by listing out a few things i would be talking about.
  3. FAKEITUDE ie fake +attitude (i learnt it from a youtuber @Tobe Nneji). 
I was soo eager to write this post that i almost forgot to brush my teeth and yes i am aware that its 2:38pm but there are days like this when you just stay in bed all day. Anyway enough of the digression  so it is time (in Rafiki's voice from lion king).
   Starting with the term packaging;
          we all know that the way things are packaged make them more attractive and hence get more attention than the less attractive ones so also humans . Consciously or unconsciously we all tend to admire people that probably look good from afar and sometimes secretly long to be their friends but the question is this what happens when you get close to that person and discover that he/she is empty that it was really only the package, well naturally disappointment sets in and we now see through all the glitz and glam that once blinded us. LESSON: do not judge a book by its cover or rather do not judge people by the way they look period. But this doesn't mean that we should not look good and try to improve ourselves in various ways of course we must look good i mean (slaying is a necessity  😉) but then again you can't just look good and have nothing to offer you have to improve your self in all aspects so that everything is in equilibrium and people would have a good reason to stick around.which brings me to my next sub heading...

Project Loving You❤

Have you ever thought about what the World would be without you how your family would've been;well I have and I discovered that I really want to be a part of this whole experience,whether or not the world is crappy or full of it I wouldn't choose non existence and I'm sure that's the same for every body or at least majority. So my point is; less complaints and more appreciation less hatred and more love ❤.Talking about love I saw an ad or a post rather, it was some sort of invitation for a program titled"project loving you" the program is based mainly for young girls but I think it should be for everyone because alot of people don't love themselves enough and if you don't love your self you cant love others you cant give or even share what you don't have so today I propose that you should start your own personal project of loving your self .Good morning cuties' have a great day and don't forget to love your self today.

I got this from a book by John L Mason and it inspired me so here it goes.

                   Do more than exist.Live.
                   Do more than hear.Listen.
                   Do more than work.Excel.
                   Do more than share.Give.
                   Do more than coexist.Reconcile.
                   Do more than think.Plan.
                   Do more than help.Serve.
                   Do more than read.Apply.
                   Do more than see. Perceive.
                   Do more than choose.Focus.
                   Do more than sing.Worship.
                   Do more than ponder.Pray.
                   Do more than just live.Live for Jesus.
Ultimately doing a little bit more can go a very long way. Yours truly❤︎

Self Discovery; the Dawn Of every New Beginning

Good morning beautiful people.

This morning I woke up with a lot of things on my mind  like what to do next with my blog, what I would want to focus more on, how I want my life to be and so on. Amidst all these thoughts I got confused because as I was thinking I was also surfing the web looking for other bloggers and trying to get inspired. well I did see a lot of people (beautiful people ) but there was a problem; they all had their focus on things they enjoyed and I tried to think of what exactly it was that I wanted to be writing or blogging rather about but guess what? I couldn’t think of anything. Yes I was blank. That moment when you are trying to think about what it is that you love to do best. Well I didn’t come up with anything. Well as you all know by now I am proudly African (Nigerian to be precise) and I like to think of my self as multi-talented, kind of like a Jack of all trades and that(I would say) is a bit of a problem now because I feel like i'm too confused to focus on a particular thing but after a long time of thinking it hit me; it really doesn't matter if you are mono- talented or multi talented. You can achieve great heights either ways.

Chibogu Udeh
Author and Blogger (The West African Voice blog)

There is something about beginnings that lights me up ,maybe because of the excitement it brings or that feeling of looking forward to something; waiting for something to happen, hoping that things work out, wondering if anybody is even noticing  watching you.

Well i sure love beginnings but does any other person wonder why the whole story doesn't feel like the beginning part because i sure do. This is a story that i hope lasts, and that the end feels even better than the beginning. This is to new beginnings,new stories and surely beautiful endings. Before i forget my name is Chibogu & you are very welcome to my blog.
