My 23rd Birthday I

Hey Guys,

How are you doing?

I apologise for the reduction in post frequency, I'm going through some lifestyle changes so I'm trying to adjust accordingly. Remember my Birthday Wishlist, Well, I've gotten 5 of the items so far and many other things I didn't ask for :)

My parents gave me money for my birthday and I used it to get number 1 on my list. I needed that external flash because I'm about to start doing beauty posts :) and I hate the fact that my camera becomes useless once it gets dark or when the lighting is bad.


I've realised I don't need Number 2 just yet but I will have to get a Sax Mic very very soon. I don't need Number 3 yet too, I just have to transfer my pictures to my laptop. I used my Birthday Money to get Number 4 but I didn't get any of the brands I mentioned in the wishlist. The BM Pro Ones cost N4,000 while Kat Von D and Lime Crime cost N6,000 so I got a cheaper alternative, LA Girls Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss. They cost N1,600 and I got them from the Beauty Kink Stall at the Salon Day Out on Sunday. I'm going to do a review of them, do you want pictures or a video?


Number 5 will be gotten today and tomorrow. Number 6 will be gotten in the future when I run out of the Elf primer and Revlon/Black up Foundation I have. The Black up is too light and the Revlon is too dark so I mix them to get the perfect shade. Number 7 isn't urgent so that one is on hold.

My Amazing Best Friend got me number 8, 9 and 10 plus some additional presents that weren't mentioned on the list, Jewellery, a Dress and just ensured I had a Great Birthday Week :)



Kampke.com sent me a Black Maxi Dress which is available in Pink too! How sweet are they, grab a Dress from their site ASAP, they are on sale, from 38-73% off, Don't Dull!


My friend, Diwura, got me this Funky Ankara Bag :)



My Parents got me the "Nuts About Detuke" cake :)

Ify got me this lovely vanilla cake

Ore handmade this pretty marble cake and Chidinma (the blog reader that asked for the wishlist) got me a pack of my Favourite Drink, Hollandia Strawberry :)

  5. Happy Belated birthday Tuke, I was just thinking it's been a while since I've seen your posts. I hope you figure things out and get back to your posting schedule. I love the Ankara purse and it's awesome that you got so many cakes. In my lifetime I've only ever had one cake and it was for my farewell party.

      Yes o, it was very awesome getting sooo many cakes, I got 2 last year and they finished soooo quickly. These ones lasted and everyone that stopped by to get some cake got a huge chunk. Oh wow, that's shocking, so you never had cakes on your birthday's?
