PRODUCT REVIEW- MY 5 FAVE PRODUCTS IN SEPTEMBER X MY VEE STORE EXPERIENCE

I always get questions from people asking me about brands or products that I use and if they work for me, especially Natural, Haircare, Beauty, Skincare, Fashion and Health care products. Every month, I will review 5 of such products. This review is a special one, because I had such a nice and wonderful experience getting most of the products online from an ecommerce site - VeeStore. My experience at VeeStore is one that I will keep singing and gushing about. I didnt have time to order online, so with a text message and via Instagram (benefits of social media marketing) I sent my order and the customer service at Vee Store, took it up from there, I was asked for my email, my mobile number and address, the order was placed for me, I transferred the money and within a working day, Jand2Gidi delivered my products from vee store, they followed up with calls and text messages, wow! I am speechless, I felt like a king.

Here are the products that worked for me in September till now -

So two weeks ago while I was multitasking ( watching the grand finale of project fame season 9 and ironing my turtle neck gown) it was the grand finale! I couldn't miss it and hey, I wasnt sure of power supply, so I make good use of light when it comes. To cut the long story short, I forgot to turn off the iron as I ran off to watch as Okiemute Ighorodje was being announced winner. Before I realized what was happening, the electric iron had taken a better part of my dress *Screams* sobs*

I was so pained, because I have won the dress HERE it fits well on me and I love turtleneck, I couldn't let go the outfit, because I loved the fitting on me. So I had to come up with something. Lucky enough,the dress got burnt at the lower part, so I decided to apply my new skill (sewing) yes! I am learning how to sew simple dresses. I cut the dress into two, discarded the part that was affected…
