Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
The first day I tried the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, it was around 8pm meaning I had a full day of makeup, lipstick and eyeshadow. I took my rolled cotton wool sheets and dapped some product on it. At first I thought this mineral water was going to dry my skin out (but then again what would I have to lose from trying?). I gently started to r...

My Foundations

My Foundations

Wow African Hair

Wow African Hair
Wow, my first official hair review. If you know me, you know I like versatility when it comes to hair – not just any hair but good quality hair. Now I've been doing weaves for the longest time, I would walk into a salon, plait my hair and have the weave sewed in. Funny enough those weaves would only last as good as 2 to 3 months. This ...
