VLOG UPDATE - The "married woman" syndrome, 5 GUIDELINES FOR SINGLE LADIES....

WEDNESDAYS ARE FUN


Toke Makinwa

Ever wondered why some friends changed so much after they got married? I got an email from a lady asking me why it seems that marriage changes people, most especially the women.

I do not claim to know it all but watch what my thoughts are on the "married woman" syndrome and nudge yourself if this applies to you. Don't worry, we wont judge you as long as you promise to change.

TM - FROM ME TO YOU

SHORTS FOR FRIDAY NIGHT


Last night I was out with my bestie Arese. It was her birthday in the week so we had a post birthday dinner and drinks and I had so much fun. I only attend work functions of late but I have decided to socialise more and yesterday was pretty interesting

Arese and I

Showing my legs has always been way out of my comfort zone, we all have those problem areas in our bodies that gets us all uptight. For me, my legs are too skinny and I have some spots that I am so conscious of. 

Whenever someone asks me why I don't expose my legs, I get really uncomfortable. Yesterday, I threw caution in the wind and wore shorts to a bar.

Why is this news? I hope my little act of boldness will encourage anyone out there who has hangups about certain parts of their body. God made you so beautiful and sometimes, all you have to do is confront those little hiccups and LIVE.

There are some things we can change about ourselves, and for those things like dieting, exercise, eating habits etc, I am all for it, but the things we have no control over should not control us.

Have a blessed Saturday,

TM - BEAUTY TIPS; MY SECRET SKIN RECIPE

YOU'VE GOT MAIL...


Hey guys, I am so sure some of you have been refreshing this space, I apologise for being away for a minute. Abeg o, please don't be angry with me, I am working at moving things around and effective time management. *Fingers - crossed*

Some people want to know the secret of my great skin huh? Coughs,  I received all your emails and I know this time around, there is no getting away from this one so let's do this.

First, you have to know your skin type and know what works for you. By that, I mean do you have a dry or oily skin type? Living in Nigeria can be tough, we know how hot this country is and even naturally light skinned people need to maintain their skin colour and texture so that the skin can look and feel healthy. The fear of sunburn, is the beginning of taking safety measures. So before you say I am encouraging you to lighten your skin (bleach), read these lines properly.

Know your skin type


Smoking and excessive drinking is not only harmful to your body, it is also detrimental to having a great skin. There is no cutting corners here, if you must drink, drink a lot of water, fresh juice and try to reduce the alcohol intake. Smoking should not even be reduced, it should be stopped totally! It makes your skin dry, scaly and it makes you age as well.

Stop smoking and drinking

Now to the skin products, you need to stick to one brand. People complain of getting darker as a result of some creams not working for them and I still insist that  sticking to one brand and one brand alone is the key. 

You can't use a different brand of soap, toner, creams, etc too much of everything will eventually become a mess! Let it be a minimum of 2 brands to make up your skin/beauty regime. If you still don't get my drift, let me explain further. If you use clear essence, let all you use be clear essence. From the Soap, Toner, Serum etc. If you do this, you will notice a difference. Loyalty is key.

The last tip guys, make out the time to visit the spa. It is essential to get your body scrubbed at least two times in a month. they have whitening body scrubs that peel off the dead skin and makes your skin feel rejuvenated


Whitening Body Scrub

I hope all the tips I have shared above you comes in handy
