What I WORE: Black Out

Last night our university ACS held an event night 'Take Me Out', which was definitely a laugh and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Considering I never go out in Uni, this was actually my first time stepping out, and wasn't half bad! So that being said "well done to the ACS for putting on a good show".
   It was a very casual affair and seeing as my color of the season is BLACK, I reached for my pieces of black clothing.
   Teaming my leather jacket, with my cardigan from Zara to add layer and dimension. My black leather leggings which I live in and my wedged boots.

What I WORE:

Jacket- Bershka
Cardigan- Zara
t-shirt- Zara
Bag- Celine
Boots- Shoe shop in Bluewater

Just a brief post for you guys

What I WORE: The Lounge

Hey guys, I was so busy with school work this past week, that I'm only getting round to putting up this post! But last weekend my cousin celebrated her birthday at 'The Lounge' which for any of you that don't know, its basically a luxury cinema experience from Odeon. They offer you lovely food and drinks while you watch your film. The cinema itself has no more than 50 seats so is really intimate and is so chilled and comfortable with you being able to recline your seat at the touch of a button. I hadn't been before and didn't know what to expect, but it was a lovely experience and I'm so glad she broke the generic birthday celebration people do with 'dinners'. We watched flight with Denzel Washington, which I loved because I'm a hard core Denzel fan having watched basically all his films.
   It was lovley being able to catch up with my cousins'and Melissa: which if you haven't checked out her blog already, make sure to (link here)

Beyonce for me nailed it in Osman Yousefzada! A monochrome look which is very intrend right now, was just so clean, sharp and very straight to the point much like her! I loved everything down to her hair ....just awesome!

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder- REVIEW

So I picked up the Guerlain bronzing powder a while ago, as I was on the hunt for a product that I could contour with as well as use to give me a seamless bronzed glow look. I had heard about the Guerlain Terracotta powders but didn't really think it was worth the purchase, as their quite on the expensive side. However the beauty junkie that I am, I decided to treat myself and splurge on the product having read and watched a couple reviews on it.

MAC Cosmetics Opens First Store In Lagos Nigeria

I thought this was a really important update, beauty wise for all those MAC makeup girls and women in Africa especially Nigeria. 
   On Saturday 2nd of February, MAC who is owned by Estee Lauder, opened their first store in WEST AFRICA. Yes out of all the countries in West Africa, Mac decided to open their store in Lagos Nigeria. They also plan to open stores in Botswana and Zambia before the ending of the year.
   I'm so pleased and excited with this step from Mac. Even though I don't currently live in Nigeria, whenever I'm there for the long duration of my summer, I tend to loose a couple products or just simply want to buy some products from a large range of selection. Which is now possible with this opening of the store.
    The store is located in Ikeja City Mall, while the second store will be opened in the Palms Mall later on this year. You'll also be happy to know that Mac have really big plans to open as many as 5 store in Nigeria over the next three years.

  Abuja the capital of Nigeria will also be next followed by Nairobi, both within the first three years Mac is in Nigeria, noted Karen Buglisi, Global Brand President For Mac Cosmetics. 
    According to their release, Part of their strategy also includes hiring a resident trainer and senior make-up artist in each location which guarantees impeccable service and five star ratings amongst customers.

“We want customers to be able to go to any market in the world and have a seamless service experience, and we will provide top-notch education to make this happen. We want to go in to Africa boldly and say, ‘We’re here.’,” Buglisi added. (PRESS RELEASE)
     Since Mac cater for a large range of darker skin tones I really do think their stores in Africa will flourish. The product that I can already see being their best seller is the Studio Fix Foundation as the formula is good for hot countries, as well as it being available in 50 different shades. I think Mac opening their store in Nigeria was a very smart move for them, even though it may effect some beauty sellers who currently stock Mac products as they now have competition with the actual store and their pricing. But it will also eradicate the unknown purchasing of fake Mac products from these sellers and the customer will only be happier in the end.

Good Move!

If any of you have visited the store, let me know your thoughts on it?

L I P S T I C K S: Drugstore Favorites

Jenny here again!.... Today I'm sharing my current favorite drugstore lipsticks (I know drugstore is an American term but there are no other words for Super Drug and Boots sooo Drugstore it is lol). I have with me F O U R lipsticks, which I readily reach for, and wanted to share them with you guys.
   I absolutely love high end lipsticks like Mac, YSL, Chanel (guilty pleasures) etc... However we all have to agree that a majority of the time they are over priced and sometimes just not worth the purchase. So I'm sharing with you guys my UTMOST favorite lipsticks I currently use at the moment from drugstores ( eg Boots or Superdrug) and would highly recommend them, if looking for pretty natural nudey pinks. I generally find that the drugstore brands don't usually do nudes for all skin tones (some just make darker ladies lips look white and dry but on a fairer person would look totally fine) so  the four that I have to show you, in my opinion can be worn by all skin types.
