           HEY! HOLD UP!! 

     What Exactly  Are Lip Plumpers?
Lip plumpers are basically products that help you to achieve plump lips by increasing blood circulation in the lip area so that it looks puffier. Some lip plumpers also use reflective substances that bounce off the light to mimic a fuller lip. Collagen and hyaluronic are common ingredients in the lip plumpers that shapes, boosts and hydrate your lips, resulting in a perfect pucker.

Important Tips To Be Followed While Choosing And Using The Lip Plumpers

  • Different lip plumpers, with their wide variety of ingredients, react differently on every skin. What works for you and what does not is something that only you can figure out. Expect a few trial and errors.
  • Do not go overboard with plumping. Know the difference between a sensual pout and a duck-face. Overly plump lips look artificial and flatters no one.
  • Although a little burning or tingling sensation is common with most of the lip plumpers, depending on your pain threshold if the sensation gets unbearable wipe off the product immediately. The skin on our lips is sensitive, so know where to stop.
  • If you are using a suction device for lip plumping, make sure the material is non-toxic and refrain from using suction if you have fine cuts, bruises or extremely chapped lips.
  • For shiny or glossy plumpers, focus on the cupid bow a little more than the rest of the lips. It will create a highlighting effect.
     Remember with a juicy pout and an attitude to match, you can conquer the world.

My fitness routine #growth

Lol....this one time, I tried settling for less and lost so much weight (lesson: don't settle for less). Aren't some guys just cowards? Listen ladies, do not let anyone take your feelings for a joke and leave without giving any explanation, always remember that you deserve the best, do not give anyone the opportunity to play with your emotions and go free, like nun happened. Anyways, this is a topic for another time, cuz I'm bout to start spitting profanities.
     So, I went for. Sleepless nights and appetite loss for a total b.s nigga, to toothache. Pulled two teeth, couldn't eat a week, then I went to fever. By the time these were done, I went from 58kg to 54.3kg. Total deflation. DEFLATION!. It was so sad, I looked sick, my clothes didn't fit anymore. My butt and hips *pooof*. It was so surreal. That's some emotional sturv you know.
      But then I got back on my grind. My inspiration? My birthday. It was like three weeks to and I can't  afford…


So, last week Sunday was my birthday and I'm so grateful to God for everything. And once again, I want to thank everyone who sent messages, called and posted on their timelines and statuses ,y'all are amazing. 
        My photoshoot oh! my photoshoot, I do not know how it happened, but it did and it was amazing.          Initially, I had no plans at all, like I knew there was gon be a shoot, I just didn't know what to do yet. So I wanted something dramatic, with lots of costumes and stuff, then I wanted something up close you know, show a little skin....then I wanted something African.....and the last idea was something boss-ish.        And boom!! It was may, and I still hadn't decided what I wanted to do. But then I had this dinner dress my mom got me for no reason, and then I had this white jacket my roomie called medivial and said I looked like someone from England in the 60s. And I also had this cute and sexy nightie that I always feel good know... *sob*.…

A little fickle spice : #selfcare & #selflove + 10 affirmations.

Yes, it is a thing. And it's all about you!  You!! You!!! You!!!!. I mean if your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete. You've got to take care of your mind and body, it's the only place you have to live. It is very essential to take time to do what makes your soul happy and keeps you at peace.
        Two major things that affect how your day goes, regardless of being able to control the events that may take place are: Your state of mind and your self-esteem (confidence).
        Selflove is more about things that have to do with your state of mind, the way you think, anxiety, depression, irritability or even stress. So, showing yourself self love helps you relax and think better.
         Affirmations are also a critical part of this. It doesn't just involve saying it to fulfil all righteousness, you say it over and over until you believe it and it stays with you all day. You say it, you feel it and it becomes a part of you.
