Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies - Liane MoriartyWelcome again to a new book-review for the Twisted Book Club! Last time, I reviewed One of Us is Lyingthis time I’m reviewing Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. YES! You read that right, another Mortiarty book (as promised!). I read the plot actually a long time ago, so I just started reading without actually knowing/remembering what it was about. I only remembered it being about a town where a few women seem to carry secrets about themselves whereas nobody actually knows what they deal with behind closed doors. By far, this is the best book I have read from Moriarty. No lies. I read it within a few days, and I was so excited when I read the ending. I will not leave you hanging, let’s go!  (more…)

Summer look tutorial w/ Lyvv cosmetics

In my previous post, you got to see Lyvv cosmetics lip swatches. Today, I’m raising the bar, I’m going to share with you something I haven’t done yet… Can I get a drum roll? *insert drum roll* I’m going to share with you a Summer look with my favorite Lyvv cosmetic product! It is so hot in Dakar these days, so I wanted to share a light and easy summer look. I don’t wear make up that often, especially in this heat. However, I thought that it was a nice, casual look that would be light enough to endure this heat. Let’s get into the Summer look tutorial I created for you guys! (more…)

Lyvv cosmetics lip swatch with Senegalese Twisted & friends

In my last post, you got an introduction to Lyvv cosmetics and their views on beauty. The second video I made for Lyvv is a Lyvv cosmetics lip swatch. So, I decided to not only test three Lyvv lip colors on myself, but also on people in my surrounding with different skin shades. How exciting right? Yes, for me it was. Especially since it was the first time I got to see how Lyvv looked on others. Do you want to find out how I did it? Keep on reading and check out the video :). (more…)

An introduction to Lyvv cosmetics & beauty values w/ Senegalese Twisted

Today, I want to share with you something cool: an introduction to Lyvv cosmetics + their values on beauty. Last time, I told you how I became a Brand Ambassador for Lyvv cosmetics. I shot my shot, got into their DM’s and suggested that they’d work with bloggers like me. To my luck, they were as enthousiast about it as I was. Now, I have created some content for them and today, I’ll share more about Lyvv! (more…)

How I became a Brand Ambassador

Brand AmbassadorWould you believe me if I told you that I’m a Brand Ambassador? Neither would I, especially if you would have told me that it would be for a cosmetics brand! Today, I want to share with you an amazing experience I’ve had here in Dakar. I mean, who would ever think to become a Brand Ambassador when all you did was take on the chance to be the face and model for a brand? Also, who would not want to know more about that story? I will tell you all about how I became a Brand ambassador for this cool cosmetics brand here in Senegal. (more…)

Expo: Icônes by Vincent Bloch

Today, I want to share with you something really cool I did! I went to see Icônes by Vincent Bloch. He had his expo at Goethe Institut here in Dakar, and asked me to come. Of course, I was excited to go and wanted to bring you along. Icônes is all about futuristic female African icones. He looks at the women of tomorrow whom he has redrawn by using edited digital images. I definitely loved seeing it, and use Vincent’s creations to make something of my own.  Let’s go through Icônes by Vincent Bloch!

One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

Welcome to another book-review for the Twisted Book Club! You can read the previously discussed book The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. This time I will review One of Us is Lying written by Karen McManus. It is the first book I’ve read written by her. I read the summary, and was pretty excited to read the book. Also, I was very curious as to what could have possible happened during detention. Of course, I was also curious to why someone would want to kill this student. Are you curious too? Read further or start reading the book! Enjoy this review.
