11 Feb Get Ready for Valentine’s Day with Me
Valentine’s Day is almost here ladies! Not sure what Naeto and I are doing yet but there will probably be food involved (no champagne or wine sadly. Lent.). Most likely dinner. I’d actually like to have sushi. But I digress. Anyways, here’s a post on how I plan on getting ready for our date this Sunday.
Threading My Brows
I get my brows and other pesky facial hair (I’m Igbo okay?) threaded by my girl Stella of Stella’s Addiction in Lekki phase 1. She’s quick, efficient and hilarious! You’ll definitely leave with a smile on your face. Brows frame the face, so give them a quick tidy up- it’ll make a noticeable difference. I’ll do this the day before (Saturday) so any irritation or redness will definitely be gone by Sunday the 14th.
Up My Water and Green Tea Intake
I’m all about the SKINTIGHT dresses all the time #Ratchet so in order to love svelte and snatched, especially as I fell off the healthy bandwagon epically in Cape Town, I’ll need to up my green tea intake to help burn belly fat and prevent any bloating on the day. Water would also help in reducing bloat AND will make my skin smooth and healthy looking. Read more about how green tea and water are essential for beautiful skin HERE.
I plan on using the Luminous Scrubbie Bar by Bath Kandy on the day to remove any dead skin and leave my skin glowing and baby soft! I adore this product actually, and you can read more about it HERE.
Shave My Legs
My Bath Kandy Turmeric and Black Pepper Soap is perfect for shaving actually because it has a shea butter base which gives you a much smoother shave.
Quick Tip- If you don’t have this or shaving gel, try using hair conditioner on your legs before shaving! Crazy but true. It leaves your legs silky smooth.
Do a Turmeric and Bentonite Clay Mask
This will deeply purify my pores and hopefully keep my skin breakout free. I’ll probably do this today (Thursday) in case any purging occurs. Read more about this brightening, blemish fighting mask HERE.
Makeup and Hair
I only recently started wearing red lipstick after FINALLY finding my perfect shade which is Dubonnet by MAC (I used it in the picture above) but I will most likely skip this altogether and go with nude lips and super dark eyes which is my go-to look. Hair will be down and in loose waves.
And that’s it. Hope everyone has an amazing Valentine’s Day. And if you don’t have a partner that’s okay too. Take the day to treat yourself!
What are your Valentine Day Plans? How do YOU plan on getting ready?
