Makeup Shopping Expedition (Mostly MAC Haul)

OMG I can't believe i've been in Lagos for almost a year!!!! I left Atlanta, june 28th 2011, and arrived in Lagos june 29th. WOW time flies.  So before I moved back I bought a lot of stuff, hoping it would last me a really long time. I bought a bunch of makeup etc since we don't have MAC or Sephora or any of them. We have Sleek, mud, some other ones i've seen but have never tried.

Anyway as time went, so did my makeup. I had only one eyebrow pencil left (and then i lost it, and tried some ghetto horrible things). I've been out of mascara for several months. I have barely any false lashes. I lost my concealer brush.

Basically let's just say Ive been forced to the the "natural" look. So I decided to stock up!!! and stock up enough for another next year. So I wrote my list, bought it, and got my mum to bring it to Nigeria for me. My mum jokes I bought enough makeup to last not one but 2 years... maybe... we'll see :)


I forgot to add 2 more products to this picture

It doesn't look that much to me. I still need mascara!! and foundation, I'm almost out (well my foundation will last 4-5 months).

I bought sooooooo much powders. 2 different colors, cause sometimes I get tan, 2 different colors of concealers cause... I get tan. LOL anyways, this is my makeup haul. It's mostly MAC just out of habit. My sis bought me an affordable concealer brush from CVS i think or Target, and i got lashes from Forever 21 ( never tried it before i'm used to Shisem).

ps: Amanda if your reading this, I know my birthday was ages ago, But i'd like Mascara & that new foundation that MAC has :) thanks.

The Cargo (#40) is my FAVORITE powder out of all!!! I wish I didn't buy any thing else! It's amazing!!! prefer it to MAC. Wish I could trade it all for stacks of Cargo powder.
YES i bought about 4 of the same eye brow pencil (name: Spiked)!! I never want to run out again!
Decided to try two new shades of red & pinkAnd of course Eyeliners!!! I barely use eye shadow, but Im obsessed with dark eye liner.

WHOA, that's a truck load of makeup!!! Do you know you can get a mac pro card or something and u'd get 30% off.... hmmm #JustSaying like many makeup artists and shopaholics have it. I'm an Igbo girl sha, so best believe I found a great way to pay under that price of almost $500! Anyways didn't get 2 lipsticks so i got the Cargo instead AMEN!!! just the week I sent this list the only Cargo I had fell down in the office and cracked into a million pieces. In the future maybe as I use the products i'll take pics, and say what I used, but... this is now my makeup collection... though I feel i need more stuff.

Don't judge, guys... you never think that you have enough games, like girls never think we have enough clothes or shoes, and in this case... makeup. Ive started enjoying the natural look, and it's a mechanism to not get "hit on" when im moving from office to office (it's not a foolproof plan, but it's probably helped.) hahahaha not that I'm Beyonce or anything, i'd just rather avoid awkward situations.

READ: HOW TO WIN YOUR EX BACK (comment with your tips, agree or disagree)

So ladies & gent. There comes a time in your life when you are seeing someone: be it a few dates, a few months or a few years, then all of a sudden, the relationship comes to an end, BAM! It's Over!

Two feelings: Good Riddance, OR I want you back; you are such an asshole for ending it with me, but I secretly want you back even though I can't confess that to my friends.

I'll admit, Ive been on dates with some people as we all know (who remembers the 12 hr date, ugh), one even lasted 6 months, but let's not talk about it.  So there've been a few that when they ended I was filled with anger, and might have wished we didn't end so we could have a perfect future (And just incase any idiot ive ever been on a date with reads this, and thinks it's him: Get Over Yourself, I did!) lol don't mind me, I'm superficially cool with most. Back to where i was.

So.... I went to watch a movie at Palms Genesis Cinemas, and they messed up the time as usual, so I decided to go to the bookstore. WOW i havent been into a bookstore in almost a year! I'm ashamed!

AND THEN I SAW THIS!!!

*For example: Do Not Initiate Contact!!
*Yes Ladies you can't be keep hanging out with his boys while hoping to bump into him. 
*And GUESS WHAT! if you call him as usual: the goat can consider it stalking or clingy *_*

Rhema's Beach Birthday Party at Kamp Ikare

So May 5th, got invited to Rhema's beach party. It was at Kamp Ikare. Most private beach houses i've been to in Lagos have been at Ilashe, so to be honest, when I heard Kamp Ikare, I just assumed maybe that's what someone named their beach house at Illashe. Well I was wrong, it's a totally separate beach, a bit further, about 40 minutes by boat (might be shorter but it felt like ages!!).

Me in blue (lol saw the top in my mums closet & thought: this would go perfect at the beach! Thanks Mum!!) & Nini
 OMG do you remember Nini from this post older post?
(click image for the post)


well guess what she's now a Dr. Congrats luv!!










So we get there and I realize, omg this is the real shit!! It's so insanely pretty! It's beyond amazing. It might be resort, it might not, I could care less, I was just super happy cause it was soooo pretty. Cabana's everywhere, bed type seats, food, pool, amazing looking beach, several floors did you hear FOOD etc.



i LIKE this :)



nice! doesn't it look like a resort gallery pic?

more interesting
Ejeme wanted to go see the beach so I went with her & took pictures. I cut my sandals walking in the sand so I also had to walk bear feet. OMG the sand was sooooo hot, and the weather was crazy hot, I ran back into shelter. Luckily I begged this server there to help me buy super glue :) and fixed it.

I LOVE THIS PICTURE
