It’s time to talk about my long overdue visit to Tiffany Amber Boutique.
Folake Coker set up Tiffany Amber in 1998, as Nigeria’s foremost Ready-to-wear line, paving a way, for the fashion  industry we know and love today.

Her designs range from plunging necklines to maxi dresses, jumpsuits with intricate details,Kaftans, wrap dresses and more. I noticed that she uses a lot of light and flowing fabric, making her dresses very easy to throw on for every occasion.

The store is simple and very roomy. It can accommodate loads of shoppers at the same time.

Vintage Funiture

I love the vintage funiture, and the fact that the interior decor, doesn’t distract you from the clothes.

​Nura Afia; First Hijab-wearing Cover girl
Nura Afia is the latest cover girl, and also the very first Hijab-wearing Cover girl.

The 24 year old American based beauty blogger, noted for her online success on YouTube, has over 215,000 subscribers. Her tutorials, geared towards teaching her fellow Muslim women, how to be creative with makeup, gets as much as 13 million  views.
Expressing her delight about working with Covergirl, Nura said “Frankly, I feel proud to be part of a movement that is showing the hijab in a positive light for once. The more of us who can wear them as representatives of these big household names on TV or billboards the better,” she said. “It is a reminder that the hijab can take us to amazing places, and not hold us back from achieving our wildest dreams like some people say it will.

“These brands aren’t exploiting us. It’s more about including us and making us feel like we matter. It’s about them finally showing us that they know we are beautiful, too.”
​Nura Afia; First Hijab-wearing Cover girl

Nura Afia’s has made history as the first Hijab-wearing Cover girl, and Covergirl cosmetics keeps breaking boundaries, as they’ve  also recently featured 17 year old James Charles, a talented young makeup guru, as the first male CoverGirl.

I love how the CoverGirl brand promotes diversity, with a strong message; that there is beauty in every size, colour, gender, race and religion.

 MAC and Samfine Master Class in Lagos Nigeria
​So this really happened in Lagos Nigeria,  the MAC and Samfine Master Class???…Still can’t believe it!!!

Tuesday the 15th of November 2016, was a memorable day for me and a few other beauty lovers who had the opportunity to be invited to a private session with celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine.
It was a magical evening, with so much fun. From mingling, to the yummy food and champagne conversations, Jamjam  and I had a blast (Yeolz, hubby was my photographer for the night ) .The venue was lit, the ambience was perfect, the people were beautiful, and the class was very informative. The Venue was Rele’s Gallery and I just love this place. Typical scenario of ‘Beauty meets Art”.

Sam Fine is not a only a great influence on the beauty industry, he is really sweet and very down to earth. There was no dull moment in the class and Sam definitely schooled us on next level skin prep. (See how i just call him Sam…we are now besties in my head o ).  Seriously, the guy is really cool, will share a few tips from the master class later.

We also got to take personal pictures and selfies with him. Yes, each person had a moment with him where he asked us about the class, as he autographed our Sam Fine DVDs. Let me not forget to add that we also got the cutest goodie bag from MAC Cosmetics.

​I got one of these Guerlain Goodies bags weeks ago, as one of the winners of the ‘La Petite Robe Noire Dream Contest’ on Instagram, and I’m still very excited. 

I love perfumes and La petite robe noire (It means ‘The Little Black Dress in French) by Guerlain is no exception.

There is something about this fragrance that’s very sophisticated, feminine and chic. Okay, please permit me to add expensive to list.

Another thing I love about my present is the pink and black purse it came in. The leather is soft, lush and really cute. I’m not sure if it’s a makeup purse or just a bag for the perfume, but I am rocking it as a party purse sha.Guerlain Goodies Bag - lights camera and cheeks
