Recently, I have been involved in lots of photoshoots *wink* I am praying for an endorsement deal soon! They love my skin, my side open teeth, my face, my Fit figure Lol! *Bragging rights* Thanks to God. So I was involved in a photoshoot for the relaunch of Sleek Studio Nigeria website, watch this space and my IG handle @divauju , I will keep you all informed, share details of the shoot and pictures from the shoot here on the blog, so Anticipate it!

Over the weekend, I attended a makeup runway event and everyone seemed to like my Natural hair, the glow on my skin and my simple outfit, so Sunkanmi Onagoruwa of Sumi Photography who was also one of the official photographers at the event asked that I be his muse. He said Hi Uju Can I take pictures of you here today? you look good, I like the hair! 
I am so in love with my low strap gladiator sandals

No bragging people, but I get lots of questions from people on my exercise routine, my skincare routine and what I use for my natural hair. Most people who know what my hair looked like before my natural hair journey, I use to have very scanty soft hair, they are so impressed with my current hair state, hence the question. I am not a routine person, but I definitely will share all of this with you all in another post, you can checkout my workout session HERE.

If you are wondering how I got the curls at the tip of my hair, I  threaded my hair two days to the event, then loosened it in the morning, with the help of my palm and a hair brush I packed the hair to the side and made it stay in place with a hair band, then smoothened my edges with Ecostyler gel. Threading helps Stretch my hair gives me curls and I don't need to comb or water spray to style it.
This Pouting thing has never been my thing! As I was trying to pout, cha! goes the sound of the camera, and there is this Eye Bag I inherited from my grand father which will not let a young girl like me be! It just keeps giving me away. What can I do? its my Flawed beauty, I love me, you should love you too.

I am starting a one week dinner diet of fruits and Veggies, let me know if you will like me to share my dinner time table here, so we can go on this one week journey together.
