LANCOME - LA VIE EST BELLE

Posted on Tuesday, 17 May 2016


Hey guys!
How are you doing? So, I haven't done a perfume post in a while.... simply because I hadn't purchased/gotten any new fragrance in a while... but that's changed..obviously!


Right, on to the matter at hand.

Aesthetic
La vie est belle comes in a sleek glass bottle. Nothing fancy - it definitely won't add any extra glam or oomph to your vanity but, I think there is a "quiet" prettiness to this bottle.  Personally, I like the bottle and it fits nicely in my palm.

Fragrance 
La vie est belle opens with top notes of Blackcurrant and Pear, heart notes of Iris, Jasmine and orange blossom closing with base notes of Tonka bean, Vanilla, Praline and Patchouli. Basically, La Vie Est Belle is a sweet smelling fragrance with vanilla and floral notes.

Love or Loathe
I LOVE this fragrance... It is sexy, feminine goodness which is right up my alley and it mixes well with some other fragrances in my collection...yes I like to layer my fragrances.
Sillage on me is good...I enjoy catching whiffs of this as I go about my day. It is currently one of my favourite fragrances.
I really, like the name of this fragrance too La vie est belle translates to "life is beautiful" and despite all the wahala on ground i'm still holding on to faith that life is indeed beautiful regardless (I'm super cheesy I know)

How ya smellin? what fragrance have you been reaching for?

xo,
Genevieve

BEST WEDDING EVER?

Posted on Monday, 25 April 2016

Hey guys!
How was your weekend? Mine was a mix of extremes.... Saturday was super fun and Sunday was so meh! On Saturday was the grand finale in this wedding business I've been wrapped up in... I woke up bright and early and headed to Radisson Blu to meet the bride - Damola and get ready for the day.... Despite the disaster with my makeup on Thursday, I still decided to do my makeup myself... I think I'm a bit of a control freak sometimes but that's a story for another day.


(ALMOST) EVERYTHING WENT WRONG

Hey guys!
How's your week going? Yesterday was my friends traditional wedding and almost everything that could go wrong with me did....

A PINCH OF SPARKLE

Posted on Monday, 18 April 2016


Hey guys!
How are you doing? How have you been?! 
So, I went to a bridal shower on Sunday that was themed "glitz and sparkle" or something like that... basically, we were meant to be all shiny and stuff... I decided to add a "pinch" of sparkle to my outfit with this pewter sequinned skirt...

CURRENTLY & FAVOURITES #3

Posted on Thursday, 7 April 2016

Hey guys!
How are my fellow Nigerians doing? Good I presume seeing as our elastic limit seems infinite... We somehow take all that's thrown at us and carry on as normal. 
I'm back with my currently's and favourites of the moment.

Currently listening to: nothing comes to mind unless the radio station I listen to and from work counts? If it does then, The Beat fm

Current favourite skincare product: I haven't fallen in love with anything new lately so my favourite skincare items remain the same as last months 

Currently watching (Tv show): the usual, Greys anatomy and Scandal. I fell off track with Vampire diaries and Originals - you can say I lost interest but I've been meaning to get up to speed.

Currently reading: Under the udala trees... If you read my review on the concubine (which I recommend) you're probably wondering what happened to the books I said I'd be reading next... When the lovely lady that blogs over at beautyfrenzylagos sent me under the udala trees I couldn't resist.



THE CONCUBINE - ELECHI AMADI

Posted on Sunday, 3 April 2016

Hey guys!
How's your weekend going? 
If you're a long time blog reader (thank you!) you might remember a book haul post I did in 2014 *gasp*...
Growing up I loved reading books... It was my escape I seldom was without a novel. But unfortunately I had been in a funk and I had stopped reading like I used to... Until yesterday... You see I was home, slightly bored and without light - what else is new these days... Nepa how far? I digress lol and instead of spending my time complaining about the situation I was in, I went to my book stash and pulled out this novel...



TREND LOVING || PAINTED DENIM

Posted on Tuesday, 29 March 2016

Hey guys!
I'm back with another trend loving post.. This time I'm gaga for painted denim. I remember coming across a pair (in recent time) in the Mango store and after that it just seemed to pop up all around me like some sort of taunting game.


I admit this is probably not for everyone but I like fun, stand out pieces so it's right up my alley.
