All things glamorous

Friday, finally. It’s been a long week for me, what with the political parties holding their nominations, not forgetting that I have a job that nearly drives me insane. What is being an adult though? Anyway I am not not here to dull the sparkle that is Friday. I am here to brighten your mood and get you ready for that date that you have been counting days to, or that ladies night out that you can’t wait for.

A few weeks ago, I was in the Nairobi CBD, the initial plan was to have lunch with my best friend, Noir. She was obviously late, she's always late, not fashionably late but two hours late, late. I therefore decided to have my eyebrows done. I decided that I was not going to go through the trouble of walking to my eyebrow person (yes, I have an eyebrow person). I, instead decided to go to my nail person and ask her to do my eyebrows. Biggest mistake of my life.

Thirty minutes later, I am staring at myself in the mirror with tears rolling uncontrollably down my cheeks. I look horrible. If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting me, I am not the ugliest human to ever walk this planet, but neither am I particularly pretty. Now imagine me with shitty eyebrows. I looked like shrek, wait, that's an understatement. What I am trying to say is that I was terrified of my own image. I was so sure I was going to die alone with my horrible, horrible eyebrows. I cried for about thirty minutes until Noir got there. She laughed at me for another thirty and then introduced me to the place that would change my life, in all ways imaginable to the human brain, not exaggerating.

Now I love my things private, but just this once I will make an exception and tell you about NewXShop . Located at the heart of the CBD, the ICEA building to be exact, NewXShop is a shop that deals with making you look like class, sass and then some. Think eye make up, think face make up, think jewellery, they have you covered. Now I am still new to this world of glamour but when I visited them, I was impressed and that is a word I rarely use.

What do you do at 8 PM everyday? Instead of lazing around or watching that soap opera (c'mon we all know Alejandro and Camilla will end up together), what if I told you, you could win yourself make up goodies with NewXShop. All you have to do is follow them on Facebook, their handle being just that, NEWXShop, and participate in their daily challenges. You don't believe me, well I am a living proof, I played and I won. Three times actually, my favorite being this BNN matte lipstick. I also won something called an eyeshadow brush, I don't know what it does but it's mine. You too could join in on my excitement. Try it, thank me later.

So, before you go out with your shitty eyebrows or that shiny forehead, visit) their website or their social media pages. You won’t be disappointed. They deliver what they promise. Oh, had I forgotten to tell you, yes they also deliver. See this is every ladies dream. Guys too, how else to make your woman happy other than buy them their favorite concealer? Happy woman, happy home. Trust me on this one, looking fabulous and good food go hand in hand when it comes to us of the female species.

After they glam you up, you can go out and make Friday and I proud, minus the shitty eyebrows. Like I said, thank me later. Until next time love and love ❤❤.
