Eyin Blog reader’s ati ore mi, (My blog readers and friends)
I have to confess, I have been under serious stress. I am tired all the time and I have not exercised in a month. (Covers face) to make matters worse, I am a stress eater and I’ve been making friends with some pretty unhealthy foods lately. I also have to confess to the occasional snicker bar.
This raises some questions
Why do I feel so tired and angry all the time? This is not even a joke! I am like 3 shades darker than I used to be. See, I wasn’t ever team light skin but something is trying to cover my glory but no! I will not agree! (Robosekekeke Fire!)
I have been toying with the idea of taking a day off, probably treat myself to a mini spa day or take a day trip somewhere. I am really thinking of going to Ibadan and Visiting IITA or Lekki conservatory. Either way, I shall decide!
With all the craziness, I had a few sweet spots last week, unplanned favours, gifts etc… I just looked up and smiled.
I hadn’t combed my hair for a couple of weeks so I decided to put in nice braids. Let me just tell you, my braids are so nice!
I will try to share pictures over the weekend. I am in love with the hair and I have been wondering where the hairdresser hid all my hair cos this my big head / hair has been braided up into these light twists very easy to maintain!
You think I’m done typing?
No, I am not! The worst for me was when I sent a picture of myself to a dear friend this morning and the compliment I received was “You look stressed” I almost cried! That hurt like a B word! As though that wasn’t enough, I got to the office and the receptionist after saying good morning (Thank Goodness) asked me, “did you use a foundation darker than your skin tone”?
That was the last straw that broke the camel’s back! I am going to bleach my face alone! I kid!
Oya, let’s talk, help a sister.
How do you stay on fleek even though the weather is hot as an oven and Lagos stress is unrelenting? How do you keep your complexion in check? What are your coping mechanisms for stress and what do you do to de-stress?
Please share your beauty regimen with me. What can I do to keep it together even when work, life and everything gets stressful?
P.S: You know, when I am down, I always do an encouraging post because in the process, I encourage myself and life becomes doable once again. This time I decided to let you in on my actual life. I have no interest in creating an illusion that everything is perfect all the time. I hope you can relate!
I will totally appreciate your comments and emails.
