Berry Luxe Weekend

Hey everyone,

I didn't get up to much this weekend. Cakes and I have both been quite tired - him from work, and me from getting over a fluish coldish thingy. I was quite sick enough that I skipped working out for the better part of last week, but I should be back on track this week. Although the weekend was mostly quiet, we had a wedding to attend on Saturday. I'm normally not one of those people that goes to get my makeup professionally done before an event that's not mine. I like my makeup light and natural-looking. But, this weekend, I decided to pay Luxe Beauty Lounge a visit. They opened their store a couple of weeks ago, and I was going to post photos in a separate post - but I might as well do it now, since I don't have much to share anyways.


Remember Luxe Beauty Lounge hosted a giveaway last month - they make bath and beauty products. For now, their store and makeup services are open. They plan to expand and add hair and nail services as well. Right now, they're having a promo - Makeup and Lashes for just N5000! I don't know when it's ending but if you have anything coming up in the next couple of weeks, I would suggest you take advantage of this steal.






When you have a long dress, you MUST TWIRL!!!










FUN FACT: I wore my slippers to the wedding. See, my dress was long enough to cover and I was comfy! Allow me :D
After my makeup was done, we headed to the wedding ceremony and then reception. People liked the makeup. In fact, I got comments like "Ah, so you can be fine like this." Cakes even said I should sleep in the makeup, so I would have it on for his birthday on Sunday. Chai, DIARIS!






We had such a fun time! I danced a little bit :D. Somebody has video of me somewhere :p

    1. Thanks Anonymous. I want to try and learn good makeup techniques, but certainly not have a full face everyday - that's just not the kind of person I am. And as far as needing a stylist, please o, I'm nowhere near a celebrity. I'm just a simple girl who wears clothes. I may not have an eye for style, but I have other positive aspects to me. I enjoy fashion, yes, but if style is NOT my thing, I can't kill myself. I understand that looking great and perfectly put together ups the ante, and while I would have liked to be that person, sadly I'm just not. Like I said, I can't kill myself because I lack style.

      Thanks for your first time comment anyways.

    4. Chai@anonymous....only God knows if you actually wrote that comment while sleeping or on something.Maybe you really wrote the comment on Bellanaija sef.I will love to see how u look,if only I have witchcraft power.That was rude and you would have been better off not posting any comments at all.
      @Berry...,do your beautiful you as always,haters will always hate.And btw,I love your response.

    5. You have style. You are real and you are beautiful. Do you! What does it profit anyone to have whatever type of style @anonymous is mentioning and lack in personality anyway?

  2. Berry you look amazing! And the dress looked absolutely gorgeous. But I get you on the daily make up thing. We're all different, and not everyone can do the make up daily thing (me for instance). You like you, and your husband likes you (and to be honest you always look nice in your pictures!), so i don't see the problem here. Do you and be comfortable ( as you're already doing), and once in a while have luxe berry weekend.

    On that note, I wish you a great week!

  3. Hi Berry the make up is on point! I agree though that this is not an everyday face...it wont have the effect. Is it just me or are those beauty luxe soaps a bit too tempting esp the red velvet cake soap...looks delish. x

    @anonymous silent reader, your comment is kinda rude but maybe its just me. That Bella naija comment was so out of place and referencing it is not cool. #my2cents

  4. Let me drop my comment too! This make up was PERFECT ON YOU!!! You should tell them to do your face for every event and then practice how to do it yourself...You're a fine girl...beta pikin even without makeup.

  6. Berrryyyyy, my own opinion is that applying makeup just helps magnify the God-given features we have, I don't like when it's professionally done on me and people go "Oh wow! Is that u? So, you're this pretty? This pretty/fine/beautiful? ?????" Oh so I was ugly before eh??*mtchewww* Nonsensical!!!!...lol
    Nigerian peoples should learn to compliment one another without throwing the other off !
    Anyway Berry, you looked delish!!

  8. Berry darlin u looks guuud. Personally, I Won't change my style for anybody. I was nagged about everything clothes, makeup even hand bags self. When I was good and ready I started taking extra care. Moral lesson - Do u. I kent make myself into wat other people like. It has to be what I like. If u dnt like it, na u sabi.

  11. You looked very "takeaway " fantastic. Lmao @ the twirl comment. The n5k price for makeup and eyelashes is way beyond reasonable. I guess there are soo many Makeup artists these days.

  12. Berry,i like the fact that you are so comfortable with yourself,even without a make up face you are still comfortable,also the fact that you actually wore a slippers to a wedding means you r comfortable in whatever you r wearing.Ladies should learn to take a day off from makeup,makeup is good but it should not be every time make up.
    You r burriful with and without makeup.I do go to work without make up on my face sometimes and i still get compliments from people.Have a blessed week people

  14. It's good to look different once in a while and get lots of oohhs and aahs and get complimented. However that shouldn't be at the expense of your comfort jare.
    After all it's your body and your face.
    As for backhanded compliments,i cant just deal.
    Great reply by the way. I know it takes a lot not to reply scathingly but to do so gracefully and get your points across.

  15. Hey Berry sorry to drop this comment here but please how does one get in touch with Cakes for his services? You do look beautiful by the way :)

  16. Oh my, that make-up is life itself. You really looked good.
    Saw you on my blog.. Hurray!!!

  17. The wedding looked like a blast and you looked amazing!

  18. Berry you looked amazing plus two extra helpings! I love the dance pics; you have more personality in your little fingertip than the primped, "perfect" clones they want you to look like, have in their entire body (and their generations')
    By the way those soaps look so yummy. Talk about decadence
