How I feel about Halloween???

I'm indifferent.
I say so because I do not have any concrete evidence of real demonic activity during this season.I use Christian,because I am one and many Christians do not think this is from God.

Can I call everything that happens on Halloween as harmless-fun?no but it sure ain't all evil.
I do not believe in trick or treat;little kids coming round and getting up to mischief because that is the only day it is acceptable to be a pain by either knocking annoyingly and demanding sweets or throwing eggs and what-nots as punishment to those who have nothing to give.Err,I don't see my kids engaging in that while I'm aware.

Not to talk about the scary make up and gears people put together as well as the scary movies that seem to come out to "grace the occasion"-I sound like a cynic-I know
I do however love the discounts shops give as a fashion and beauty blogger- if I do say so myself and I plan to capitalise on those few hours of discount shopping.

I will add "insult to injury" at this point, by saying that I have always gladly and joyfully accepted sweets and other things during this season not in the spirit of the celebration wherever I find myself but simply because I love sweets and won't let that blessing pass me by-ps:I plan to do so tomorrow and I advice you enjoy too.
Happy Autumn guys:)

Emporia Armani for women review

Among many of the gifts I got for my birthday was the emporia Armani gift set.
Did I consider myself blessed among women when I received this-yes
I opened a gift only to find this gift set and bam!!!a prayer had been answered.
I had been contemplating prior to my birthday to get myself a perfum since I finished my previous one flower bomb by Vitoria Rolf which was beautiful(for lack of better words.Little did I know that a little bird somewhere somehow had whispered into the ears of a nice gentleman to get me this for my birthday and since that night-I have been using the heck out of this perfume.
It is described as a natural spray - Eau de parfum
It is not ideally what I will gravitate towards but it is interesting in an odd way.
I like fruity and woodsy smells-a bit of vanilla,tonka bean,sandal wood here and there but I think in all of this I am being prompted to try different things which I always avoid but aim loving this experience this time.
It has a very mild smell of vanilla and it almost smells clean 
It lasts long and wears gradually and nicely
I would think this is best worn in the evening on a date where you don't want to be overbearing but mysterious
It does grow on you
I think it can be used day time but night time will be best 
It's beautiful and sampling it will be the best way to determine whether it is your cup of tea or not.
Hope you give it a try esp if you are looking for a new perfume
It retails in all perfume shops and major counters like debenhams,house of Fraser  or online.

Most times we all have to come to terms with the fate which life has presented before us. The question that arises within me is why we have to allow life to choose our fate? What's the next step, where do we go from here? We are often misguided by our own limited understanding of things, that's why we need wisdom from the Lord God Almighty because it is written that "he who seeks understanding loves his life" 
We determine what our fate would be because the power of faith is in our hands. God wants us to have faith to shapen our fate. No wonder it is that in God all things are possible, and we play a vital role in that.
The power of will is very crucial and important in our lives and when the mist of fantasy is faded away reality is clear to us.  No matter how long you run away from the truth, sooner or later your gonna have to face the harsh reality of life. We might not always predict the future correctly at all times but sticking to God's word is a sure thing.
Not everything in life goes the way you want it, but that's not to say that things shall not get better. You never know how well your strength and willpower can carry you until they are the only options you've got. True words from a decent mind can move the hearts of a million souls and the right inspiration from a divine source can drive this compelling act in a gifted spirit.
For years, I've wondered what the PLAN is and for some reason I can't seem to get the answer for it, but one thing I know is that we decide what our destiny turns out to be by the product of what we attract with our thoughts.
I guess the most important thing is to believe in yourself in harsh conditions, as I write this, I'm faced with some difficulties but I believe within me that the next reader shall see me as a living testimony and the saying that experience is the best teacher really comes to play now.
Not letting your mind be entrapped in your current unhappy state believing that there is no light after the tunnel, but I'm here to reaffirm your faith. You have to ignore the things you think about that brings you unhappiness and think about, or rather do things that can change you current feeling of not being happy. This helps with the positive projections of what you want and how they would be manifested. So Re-create yourself!!!!

Jo Malone peony suede blush cologne review

I recently received a sample of this jo Malone perfume before it was sent to stores not because I am an insider but I did some research and I found that they were giving some samples away on their website.
I am very confused about the smell and the notes.It is so unfamiliar to me to the point that when I received it,I was immediately impressed-(not a lie)
It smells good and it definitely grows on you/me.I think I like the top and middle notes but there's something quite odd and sort of mature about it that makes me unsure of it.
The ingredients are rose,red apple,jasmine and gillyflower.
Now, before I proceed,I have to confess that I've no idea what a gillyflower is like but it definitely adds some sort of touch to this cologne that makes it subtle,powerful,rich and present.Its no surprise the cologne is described as charming,seductive and luxurious;it definitely communicates something that will make you curious about it.
Price ranges between  £39 for 30ml and £78 for 100ml.
I think it will be ideal for very confident sexy women between 25 and 35 to me.
I do not think it communicates the language of young women especially those who are finding themselves.If you are in that age bracket and this convinces you,check your nearest counter or alternatively on the website  HERE Jo Malone Website

Good luck!!!!

Ps:it lingers for quite a while...To me,it's interesting in a beautiful sense hence the fuss.

Avon Moroccan Argan Oil Leave in Treatment Review

recently orderered the product mentioned above from Avon and I have been impressed by it so I have decided to do blogpost on it for those of you who are not following my YouTube here(Matilda boe)
It's a leave in treatment for all hair types which means you don't have to wash it away after has the consistency of a serum and it's almost as thick as castor oil it almond oil.
I have been using a lot of oils in the past and castor oil was the closest to make a difference to my hair.This is not to suggest that the other oils are not good,my hair didn't just work well with it.
I have however used the Moroccan Argan leave in for a month now and it has worked wonderfullly on my hair.All the hair I lost on my edges a while back are growing now which means my hair is healthy and is able to retain all the nutrients and moisture I need to support my transitioning.
Below is picture evidence of progress
