Finding Natural face masks that actually work is like looking for a pin in a hay stack. Personally, I have tried and tested so many clay face masks for an even skin tone, acne, wrinkles and anti aging (even though I’m young forever) my face almost ran away from me
Natural face masks come highly recommended if you are looking for instant brighter skin. Face masks reduce pore size, restore skin moisture, clears and brightens complexion, gets rid of blackheads, acne, wrinkles etc

Social media is a tool and like most tools, if used carelessly can do your business more harm than good. You wouldn’t want to chase your existing customers away and repel potential ones would you?
I think not.
Treasures by ISURA is a jewelry outfit created by Efe Fagbeja who has always been intrigued by jewelry and the way they work.Efe is a bubbly creative who likes to DIY a lot. She is tenacious and perseveres (I guess you have to be when working with precious stones and fragile strings)
It is important to state that as a kid, Efe would pick shells on the beach and try to string the ones with holes in them. It is safe to say that there was absolutely no way she was going to live a life outside of making and designing accessories.

Before I highlight a number of ways women can make money from home, I will tell you this for free, being a career woman is not a walk in the park which is why when a husband and a baby or two join the mix, women most often times resign from their day jobs to take on the role of being full time housewives….
This post goes out to my fellow perfectionists. So for a while now, after procrastination, the second thing on my negative list to consciously get rid of this year is ‘Over Perfectionism’. I thought it was a good/okay thing, but I now realise there is a very bad side of this trait I have acquired.
The thought of this led to this quote over the weekend, and I’m sure you can relate to it, “Over Perfectionism Can Certainly Kill/Drown Your Beautiful idea”. It’s time to get it behind you, and cast the negative spirit out fast.
