Get some sleep or some ice

We all need our beauty sleep. I know I need about 7/8 hours sleep to feel human, but some nights I just can’t get the sleep I need, and my eyes start to sting in the morning. On those frustrating mornings, I get a bag of ice wrapped in a flannel for some relieve. This can also help with puffy swollen eyes; the ice helps to take the swelling down.


Eyelash extensions

Using eyelash extensions is an easy way to make your eyes pop instantly. They are quick and easy to use, and there are loads of options now in the market. You can go for a natural-looking eyelash enhancement for a natural look. If you are after full-on hollywood glamour, you will find full-on false eyelashes to go with the look.


Make your eyes pop with a concealer

Concealers are great for making our eyes appear brighter, getting rid of dark circles, and hiding blemishes. To make your eyes pop using a concealer,  go for a shade lighter than your skin tone.


Use a Mascara

Mascaras are great for opening up the eyes and making them pop. I have quite a few mascaras in my makeup bag, and they all come in handy in different ways.


Get the eyebrows done

I like to have my eyebrows threaded or waxed every month. I prefer threading as it is easier on the skin and better. Threaded eyebrows also last longer than waxed brows, which is good value for money. Well shaped eyebrows is a good place to start when it comes to eye make up.

Beauty Muse – Nathalie Emmanuel

The Game of Thrones star – Nathalie Emmanuel is a Beauty Muse, and she knows it. I love everything about this pretty woman’s features. Her afro hair is hair goals!

Nathalie Emmanuel known as Missandei in Game of Thrones is the real deal. Her natural beauty glows. I have always been curious to know more about this beauty muse. So I was happy to find an interview she granted a while ago, where she spoke about her life, career and hair.


On her Afro

 “I think my hair is the first thing people recognize me for,” she says of her goddess-like afro, “and I’m happy about that.

I think we’ve all gotten so used to women straightening and changing their natural hair.” 

“I think a lot of women with textured hair go through that same journey.

Where they want to chemically straighten their hair. 

And that’s fine if that’s what makes you happy, but I think many women feel trapped by it.”


I love the fact that Nathalie still rocks her natural hair. My hair is back to natural now, and I have fallen completely in love with. I am also learning to care for it. I wrote about my transition to natural hair, so you can play catch up if you like to know more about my journey. Going natural is the best thing I have ever done for my hair.

I can see why many prefer to have their hair texturised. Wearing your hair natural is a lot of work. Maintaining a natural hair takes commitment, time and money, and many can’t afford these. So I get it, but seeing a women rock her natural hair like Boss still makes me very excited. I am happy to know my daughter would grow up to see beautiful black women around her and on Television, rocking their natural afro hair.

How to Get Rid of Body Odour

Smelling good is good for business. We all aspire to smell nice. That is why perfumes, deodorants, body sprays, and products that smell nice would always be in demand. Sometimes, we use all of these products but we still catch ourselves smelling funky. So how do we get rid of body odour?


Body Odour Image


The NHS website defines body odours as the unpleasant smell produced by bacteria on the skin that break down the acids in your sweat.The medical term is bromhidrosis. On the website, it goes further to mention the possible causes of body odours and when to seek help. We should all know the possible causes of body odours,  and how to deal them. Having regular showers, shaving the armpits regularly, use of deodorants, perfumes, anti-perspirant, wearing clean clothes, are some of the ways to help get rid of body odours.

But what happens when we do all of these things, but yet still stink? Most women experience a lot of body changes after pregnancy, and sometimes dealing with a sudden body odour could be one of it. For some women, it is nothing to do with the personal hygiene, diet or pregnancy, the odour just springs up from and nothings seems to combat it.

Here are 2 tried and tested ways you could get rid of body odour today.


Use Lemon/Lemon Juice

A common spot for body odour is the underarms. Sometimes, we could take as many showers as possible, use all the effective deodorants, anti-perspirants and perfumes, and still smell funky. That is because, these products just mask the odours, they do not deal with the root cause. This is where lemons come in.

Lemons or lemon juice are great for getting rid of body odour. The acidic nature of lemon lowers the pH levels of the body which make it inhabitable for bacterial growth. The antibacterial and antifungal properties of lemon juice suppress the growth of microbes that live on our skin and feed our sweat. So lemons deal with the underlying causes of body odours.

I recommend soaking a cotton pad in the juice and rubbing it on your underarms and other odorous areas of the body. You could also squeeze the juice from lemons directly on your underarms. Let the juice dry on its own. You can repeat this process once or twice a week but make sure you don’t do this just after shaving as it stings.

I have used Lemons and Lemon juice as a deodorant for a while now and I highly recommend it. You want to (or need to) use anything else once you try this.

Get rid of Body Odour with Head and Shoulders Shampoo

Another way to get rid of body odour is to wash the underarms and public hair (if you have any) with Heads and Shoulders. This is another tried and tested tip and it works like magic!

All you need to do is to apply a tiny bit of Heads and Shoulders shampoo where needed and scrub. You wash off after a minute. You can get the same result from any type of Heads and Shoulders Shampoo.


I am no Dermatologist, and all what you read here is my personal opinion, as always. However, these tips are tried and tested, and they work. So do let me know if you try them. Also feel free to drop any body odour tip you have tried and tested.
