My Take on Debonair Pizza Ikoyi: A Review

How are you doing today? What do you think of that new Coca Cola advert that leaves you wondering who's thirstier, the cashier or the young man.


Sometime ago, I stopped by the new Debonair's Pizza shop at Mobil Filing station on Awolowo Road Ikoyi just before Falomo. I was pretty much impressed by it's neatness. And,just in case you were wondering what the interiors look like,I have pictures,yaay :)

Prior to their launch last year, my friends and I had waited days without end. Until a week or so after the Bar results were released; and by then we had ended our internship programme,so no group pizza :(

 
The staff there are bubbly fellows and while I wish  Debonair's will place chairs for their waiting customers so they don't keep us(customers) standing like stranded tourists or in your car inhaling the strong odour of petrol/fuel before the order arrives.

At Debonair's they serve wings, drinks, water, a variety of pizza which includes their signature triple decker pizza of course, ice cream that hasn't manifested since they opened their doors the first time,mind you the machine is there alongside promises of it the next time you come.

 
I honestly enjoyed their customer service a lot, and the pizza was worth the wait. If you live in Ikoyi they deliver,and if it's on Awolowo Road it's free and super fast.

Throw Back Post to my Day with Clinique

Hi Loves! I hope you are having an amazing weekend. Sometime ago, I went to the Nail Studio Victoria Island to pick up some Clinique products, and I eneded up having the time of my life there. Clinique is a high end brand I liked to admire from a distance. It's no secret that their products can be a little bit pricey(I pray one day soon I am able to afford as much Clinique products without batting an eye). However, Clinique products are usually synonymous to quality. 

Kelechi, the makeup artist on duty had a field day checking out new products with me. 
I loved the Black High Impact Mascara (which you can see here)a whole lot! You can check out other Mascara's here 
We got to play around with some concealers, the Clinique Universal Face primer(which until that day I had never tried), and some these lip colours which I selected. I didn't have so much time on my hands that day, so we didn't go through some products. I will definitely be going back to that studio whenever I go back to Lagos.
If you are a girl of colour like me, check out this clinique website that caters to women like us if you live outside Lagos or in South Africa.

Tip: Instead of going to the market to buy fake overly pricey Clinique, you should visit the Nail studio and purchase your products from them. They sell authentic Clinique products at very affordable prices. Nuff said, and back to today's post.

I did my eyebrows myself :) Kelechi tried out my shade of concealer and powder.



 I liked the combination of the Clinique Pop™ Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Peace Pop shade with the Sugar/petal pop.


                                             The Masacara I told you guys about earlier.

            To be honest, I wasn't a fan of this second look using the peace pop, and the nude pop shade.


I love this Clinique Pop™ Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Sweetheart Pop shade A LOT!


I took pictures of some of the Clinique products they had.

           Summary of some of the products we had fun with.





         More pictures.





You should visit the Nail studio Victoria Island if you are around that axis and need to spoil yourself a little. Say hi to Kelechi for me, tell her Alexandra sent you.

I Did my Eye Brows for the First Time! Here's a Quick Everyday Eye Brow Tutorial (for Thick Brows)

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to share this post with you because it means so much tome. Prior to September 27, 2016, I had NEVER tried doing my eyebrows. If you follow me on instagram you would have seen a preview of this post in the picture I posted the same day I carried out the experiment. 
Even after watching tons of YouTube videos, I had this thing at the back of my mind that, if I carved or trimmed my eye brows, I'd end up looking like a creature of the deep. I know, crazy yeah?! When I was a little girl, I used a razor to secretly(because my mother would beat the hell out of me), trim the edge of my eye brows which pretty much didn't grow back (do not try that at home if you are a child reading this, totally dangerous). 



Well, I woke up with a zeal to learn how to do this eyebrow thing not because I felt pressured to, but because, I jut felt I was ready to give makeup a  go at this point in my life.

Here are the results...

I started by brushing my eyebrow with a spoolie (a specialized eye brow brush very similar to a mascara wand). You can use your dried up mascara wand if you want to, this is what I used for this post(and I intend to continue until I get a good spoolie). 

Then, carefully use a razor to trim the excess hair outside the shape you intend for it.

In the picture below, I haven't done anything to my right eyebrow, can say it's in it's original form after I have partially trimmed it.

The next step is to draw a thin line with your eye pencil over and under the eye brow, giving them the shape you intend for them to take as seen in this picture(I used these fuchsia pink arrow pointers as a guide for you).


Then, the next step is to start filling in the eyebrow. This stage is quite tricky, you don't want to end up like a wildebeest(that was my main fear after trimming my brows). You might have figured, I love slightly thick eyebrows similar to my natural brows(I didn't trim off much of my brows), and those of Cara Delevegne.
My Discovery: The more you fill, and more pressure you apply to the eye pencil the thicker the outcome.

After filling, you need to brush your eyebrows again, and, put them in the shape you desire, if they have scattered. And, use a thin brush to line a lighter shade of foundation on the top and bottom of the eyebrow. The brush is seen in the first picture of this post, in this instance, I used one of my brow brushes from my Bobbi Brown set and can be purchased here. I used the Sleek Oil Free Creme to Powder two shades lighter than my skin tone for this.



The final look. 
Now, while this might not be the best brows you have ever seen, this is my first attempt, and I am very, much excited :)
What eyebrow tips do you suggest I should incorporate next time?

Before I forget, this is not a sponsored post or an advert. To collaborate with me in the future, check out my contact Page and shoot me an Email.



Your comments mean a lot to me, what do you think of the final look? 
Thank you visiting today, I hope you come back soon. And, please share this post so that others get to see it as well, once again, thank you.

Alexandra.
