Ziaja Light formula creams. 2 facial moisturizers you need for your skin this fall.

Talking about moisturizers I haven't really used a lot because I try to narrow the kinds of products I use to brands that are more trusted and contains the right contents in its correct proportion. I was Introduced to this facial moisturizer by a friend and it became a game-changer. I hardly pay attention to my skin but recently more efforts have been channelled into mild skin routines and the outcome his worth sharing. 

Routine: I wash my face with a mild baby soap or face wash. I allow my face to dry with natural air and after drying I apply the Ziaja moisturizing cream cocoa buttercream. Massage the cream in a delicate way.


Ziaja Light formula cream with Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E: (I recommend for dry skin). This happens to be my favourite product from the brand. This face cream is very useful and this brand has different products that I use. I might not be able to review or share them on my platform but you can find them online and at any cosmetic store near you. Cocoa butter is generally good for the skin as it nourishes the skin because it contains antioxidants. It provides the skin with beneficial nourishing elements that keeps the skin moist and bright all day.

Revitalization: After night wash, I apply it to my skin and in the morning my skin looks healthier and smoother, there is a general improvement on the appreciate of my skin. It reduces skin irritation but does not exactly remove spots. If you have spots in starts looking faded but after long use of this face cream. This product is also said to help prolong a natural tan.

This dress is a gift from my mum in 2016, I always wanted a dress like this. The dress has a playful design which made it look artistic. It is colourful, elastic and versatile. I will try to create more time to restyle and show off some piece my mum got for me. Sometimes I wonder how my mum knows what I want, even when i am away, she gets the best chic styles when it comes to clothing's, most of my Ankara outfits my mum picked the styles, her choice is always on point. Actually, I wrote this post on the 21st of April 2016. I felt I could do more with this dress and so I decided not to post these photos. Anyways I went through my draft and decided it caught my attention.

Avon Mark Magix Prep and Set Spray Review

Avon as a brand has products that really suits me. A lot of people tend to go for brands that sell for higher prices thinking it's much better but sometimes that is not the case. Before and After applying my makeup to get a clean flawless long time look I use the Avon Magix prep and set spray. It holds my makeup together for a very long time. I remember staying out all night. I had to attend an event with a friend and also travel the same night. We had so much fun and immediately after the event we boarded a travel cab to another city at midnight. We still had our makeup on from the previous day and when we arrived it was still intact, no shift or caking. We specifically kept an eye on the (Avon setting spray) not the Magix prep and setting spray but it also has the same effect. The mark prep and set spray were later released as a milder formula in my opinion.  

How to use
 Before applying your make up prep your face with the Avon Mark Magix prep and set spray and after (Blend in your foundation very well) your makeup application. People complained of a mask-like feeling after applying the Avon setting spray which is totally the same feeling you get when you apply makeup make up setting spray in large quantity than needed, tho Avon setting spray was a little more intense because it was made for both normal skin and especially those with oily skin to stay matte all day. The quantity you apply now depends on the intensity.

The Mark Magix spray is a milder formula but still holds for a long time. Spray from a distance (7-10 inches away from your face). Do not apply to your forehead area. The effect is very good. It is one of my must-have makeup product. I totally recommended you use it in moderation. 2-3 distant spray is totally fine to keep your face matte and intact all day.

WHAT ARE WE WITHOUT HIM?

If there are words for Him then I don't have them. My brain has not yet reached the point to form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God. My lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath to breathe out the greatness of his love. My voice is so inhabited restrained by human limits that it's hard to even sing the praise that he deserves. if there are words for Him then I don't have them. My God is grace is remarkable, merciful are innumerable, strength is impenetrable, he is honorable, accountable, faithful, he is unsearchable yet knowable, indefinable yet approachable, indescribable yet personal, beyond comprehension, further than imagination, King if every nation. If there are words for Him then I don't have them. Trying to capture the one true God using my vocabulary will never do. This is an expression of worship to a savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise. My heart will bless his name forever. He has defeated me in my rebellion, conquered me in my sin and welcomed me into his presence. Followed me with mercies in the morning and journeyed me grace in the night.

Tulip Bistro in Abuja, Nigeria. Cakes, Drinks, Tea, and Coffee.

  

Happy Sunday beautiful people. How is 1st of September treating you all?
Abuja has always been one of the best cities in Nigeria. This is my opinion and I will pick Abuja over Lagos anytime. I like visiting restaurants with beautiful interior. Show some effort and keep your environment neat and clean, then you totally won yourself a new customer. I got back and meeting my friends felt super nice and we decided to hang out at Tulip bistro to catch up. 





Tulip bistro design is super cute and has different sections, but the section where we sat down which has the flowery design looks bigger on Instagram but in reality, it is a small room. The design is cute, snacks are ok taste-wise, to me nothing so special just cakes, drinks, tea and coffee. Well, I think that was the aim to get something sweet and fast.



 Generally, this place is neat and relaxing. On like some places or restaurants in Abuja. Some places in Abuja you see water traces on the wall and that irritates me so badly, Tulip bistro is super neat and the interiors are also very clean using an eye to judge.


We had cakes which were nice I also I had muffins, which I think is a little on the high side for third-class citizens but I guess the aim of this place is to reach out to the middle class and upper. One muffin cost #1000, a thousand naira in Nigerian currency which is very ok in USD  (2.78) but in my currency it looks kinda a bit high.





We actually wanted to take some photos but they declined and stated that mornings are better for photos to prevent inconveniencing other customers with flashlights. Pretty fair, lol, anyway, I enjoyed sitting out with my friends. I had a good time.
