Looks over character

Ladies? Do you feel the same? Fella’s am I maybe missing something?

Yesterday I posted a couple of selfies of a friend and I after a beautiful day spent together.

Every other time I post up pics, I often get DM’s which start out as general convoz. Now I’m always down for a convo coz I firmly believe that not all guys will chat you up just to get something out. I believe, just like myself, that there are guys and girls who just love speaking to and meeting new folk.

What was disturbing was that most of the guys asked me for a picture of myself after not even 10 lines into the convo….

For me, that is a HUGE put off! Here’s why:

  • You chatting to me on a social network platform, my profile is open…what pic could you possibly want?
  • What are you going to determine by receiving a pic a full length pic of me?
  • I hardly ever post up full length pics because I’m a selfie queen and those who matter and know me, know that I’m a plus size one too.
  • What ever happend to knowing people for who they are rather than what they look like or how many curves they have?
  • It’s degrading and superficial and I don’t associate myself with such folk ( you are who you hang around with) 
  •  I could just be melodramatic but oh well.

The one  asked: ” do you have cute toes”…is this the norm and am I maybe living in the stone ages…where character takes presidence over everything.

It makes no sense. Are these the guys that we really have outya? The ones that want trophey gfs to show off to their homie’s?  Or  ones that would only initiate a convo if you match their physical criteria?

Fella’s?  I would love to get you’lls take on this one. Why is it so important? Are looks gonna help you pay the bills or comfort you when you down and out? Or,  are you only on social media to chat to perfectly – figured pretty girls? OR…am I just totally not getting it? 

I’ve never been one to pretend or to befriend superficial folk. I keep it 100 all the time and maybe I just expect folk to be the same. 

The moral of the story is: Ask me for a pic of myself before meeting me and chances are you will be deleted. Is this harsh of me and do maybe I have issues?

So Ladies, let’s hear? Do you feel the same? Fella’s, am I just being daft and melodramaric? Share your thoughts or comments below.

Ready …set…naturally brighter skin.


Over exposure to the sun causing uneven skin tone? Acne scars? Or simply just want to look a tone lighter…why not do it the natural way.

Ps: The golden rule of patients and consistency applies….what you put in is what you get out.

All the natural remedies can be made and stored for ONE week.

Natural face mask that can be used daily, Preferably in the evenings.


1 tsp tumeric powder
1 tsp plain yoghurt
1 tsp honey

Mix in a small container you can multiply by 3 to keep for the week ahead.

Apply to your skin, leave till dry and rinse with warm water.

As a brightening toner…


The juice of a half a lemon.
Half a glass of water.

Because lemon juice is very acidic…it can cause skin irritation for people with sensitive skin… to prevent this you can mic equal parts of lemon juice to water and this can also be stored for the week. Once you rinse off your tumeric face mask, take cotton swobs and dab mixture onto ur face.

As a natural moisturiser


Coconut milk.

Because lemon juice can leave your skin feeling dry, rub some coconut oil onto your face and allow to penetrate for about 20 minutes before lying down.

In order to maintain clean ,bright skin, it’s important to exfoliate at least once a week… one very easy yet effective mask to use is an oats mask.


soak your oats in milk overnight, next morning, add honey to make a thick paste… apply to your face and allow to dry.

Once dry, gently with your finger, work the oats off to make rinsing with your water easier …

And those are all the natural lightening tips for now.

Use consistently for 4-6 weeks before visible results appear.

Hope you folk are having an awesome weekend…after our win against Liverpool… my weekend has gone from 0 to 100! #ManchesterUnited

Well done to Anthony Martial on his debut goal😘

Loads of Breezy Love

How to get perfect lashes ALL the time

If your “perfect” is dramatic….then this post is just FOR YOU.

Ever looked at those chicks who have naturally long, thick and full lashes and then be silently grunting and rolling your eyes???

For a very long time i did because just like my eyebrows….my lashes are very fine and I’d say medium in length.

Anywho…back to how to get those dramatic lashes! These are the things you will need:


● Mascara – I use clarins – wonder perfect mascara or lancome- Hypnose Star… works perfectly . It’s volumizes and lengthens however, if you’d like, you could use one for length and one for volume…Il get back to the application in a bit.


● Eye lash clamper – if ever you doubted it’s ability to make a difference …I suggest you try it and reassess.

● translucent powder….I know, I was like WTFUDGE at first until I tried it. Awesome to put in between your coats to dramatise your lashes…u can even use some baby powder.

● Time – what you put in is what you get out… I will leave it at that.

So! First things first. Clamp your lashes, for a more permanent effect,add some heat to your clamper first and then clamp each side for about 10 seconds.

》》apply your Base coat of mascara… always begin from the bottom and almost wriggle your brush from bottom to top as you go along, ensuring all lashes are covered… allow to dry,but not completely and then apply, with an eye shadow brush, some powder over that coat.

》》Apply your second coat and repeat however many coats you desire. Be as quick as you can as you don’t want to end up with clumpy lashes…

Ps: Don’t forget about the bottom lashes…they totes make a difference…

viola! Perfectly dramatised lashes…even for us thats “skidding”


Happy tenacified Tuesday ya’ll
