2.What inspired you to start your blog
I have long been inspired by other high profile beauty blogs, however found it difficult to find information on where to purchase authentic makeup in Zambia and information of how to wear it. I practice& posted selfies on Facebook,I received questions from many ladies asking me how I achieve the look and what I used.with my first purchase of authentic makeup on bh cosmetics website, it seemed the perfect time to launch my blog to inform other ladies who are in a situation I was in ”not finding authentic makeup

6.What tips would you give on purchasing the best wig?
With the right considerations in mind, buying your first wig doesn’t have to be nerve-wracking. Choose one that makes you feel confident and is comfortable for your scalp and type of hair loss. I hope these tips will help you.
1.Learn about wig terms and features;What exactly do the terms lace front, wefted, synthetic, Remy, feather-light, and silk cap mean?
2.Learn the difference between synthetic and real hair wigs; Human hair wigs can be cut and heat-styled, they can be parted in different ways, and most often have lace-fronts, making for a natural hairline. Synthetic wigs have less natural hairlines and often can’t be parted or re-styled. They also tend to be cheaper than real hair wigs.
3.Style do you want;Do you want something very different from what you are used to, or a wig that resembles your natural hair as much as possible? Long or short? Bangs? Layers? Straight, wavy, or curly? Thick or thin? Keeping in mind that the wig you choose will be customized to fit you perfectly. If you can’t find something you love in the store, look through magazines, browse the internet, and try on your friends’ and relatives’ wigs to get more ideas.
4. Know your head size or go for a fitting; Especially if you plan to wear your wig on a daily basis, it is essential to choose something that sits comfortably on your head and fits you right
Just like getting a haircut, remember that it will take some time for you to feel totally comfortable with your new wig. At the end of the day, it is your confidence that makes you shine – not your hair.
7.What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
the first thing I do when I wake up is probably check and reply to my phone messages..
8.Favorite online shopping site?
Well i am an online person and i literally buy most of my things online site such as ebay,amazon,colourpop website,morphe brushes site,edgars southafrica just to mention a few.But my favourite shopping site would definitely be colourpop because i am in love with there products.
9. What do you use for your skin care??
i am definitely doing a skin care post soon but what i basically use is Romeo soap indulgence “shea butter and mangnolia body butter by Bramley. And if my skin breaks out with a rush or pimples i use an indian soap called Asante.
10.How do you find time to blog with your school schedule
Timing is everything, and. maintaining a blog is no exception to the rule. well it’s kinda difficult but I’ve found strategies that help me make and maximize my time for blogging;
•Set My Schedule, I act on the responsibility by setting my schedule. I cordon off time in my week to work on my blog.
•Write more than four blog post on a weekend and schedule my blog posts
•Keep a Notebook,I have a notebook that’s on my phone where I keep research, quotes, post ideas, anything that will keep me present to the work. I never have to work from scratch because I can always pick up an idea and get started.
