16 Things To Do Before You Turn 40

16 things to do before you turn 40

I wrote a post 19 Things to do Before You Turn 25 and promised to write another for those past 25 and I very well kept to my promise. Today, we will be talking about "The things we are supposed to do before we turn the big 40".

We all know the saying that life begins at 40, at this age you are sure of what you want. Turning 40 is a time to reflect on some accomplishments, the family you have built, and the wonderful friends that stayed. This age is a relief, it is not scary at all, and if you think at this that age that you are old and can't achieve so much, then you are wrong because you still have a long way to go. Let's see the things to do before we turn 40: 
  1. First and foremost be the best parent, sister, friend, brother, child, aunt, or uncle.
  2. Learn a second language and be fluent in it.
  3. Call or write a letter to 5 people who shaped you into the wonderful being you are.
  4. Donate blood. (for those who have never donated one before).
  5. Conquer your fear.
  6. Write a short story.
  7. Swim with dolphins (this is a must for me)
  8. Buy a Porsche (it is good to dream) 
  9. Get a painting of yourself.
  10. Do something wonderful for your parents.
  11. Donate to charity.
  12. Treat yourself to expensive accessories like a Rolex or a Chanel bag. 
  13. Eat something you have never eaten before.
  14. Spend a night at the beach (not alone at least)
  15. Treat yourself to a glass of expensive wine and dinner (yes please)
  16. And lastly, make sure you led a good life, you were kind, respectful towards people's belief, faith, and lifestyle. 
Yeah, that's all about it, you can add to the list if you want to, so whether you turning 40 next year, a few years, or this year you are never too old to pull off anything, you can still be fabulous at 40.

Review: Virony Sanitary Pad

I used Virony for the first time yesterday and I ain't looking back. Few weeks ago, my friends told me about Virony pad which I was scared to get at first because of my fear of switching sanitary pads but the reviews and praises I got about it made me change my mind. Well, here I am too, dropping my praises about Virony.  Product Name: Virony Smart Lady Pad Company Promises Absorbs 60% faster Extended wings to prevent leak My Experiences  I love the feminine look and packaging, the fact that the pack can be reused as a makeup or storage bag makes me love it even more. Comes with 30 pieces in a pack (18 days, 7 nights and 5 pant liners) you will notice the difference in sizes.  It has a light and dry feel, no bulge or feels heavy when being worn and there is this minty feeling you experience down there ☻ It is perfect for heavy and light flows and does not leak or tear. My friends who experiences rashes with previous sanitary products swore that they did

How To Make Carrot Oil

Carrot oil can be used for the skin or hair and getting a good one can be nerve-racking sometimes, it’s either expensive or you fear getting a fake one. I learned how to make my own carrot oil and the transformation was so beautiful; the use of carrot oil brightened my skin and made it really soft, the key is to apply it when your skin is still wet before applying your lotion 🌚 I have never gone back to buying from a store ever since. Keep reading as I walk you through how to make your own carrot oil. Supplies • Hand Grater  • Pot • Mesh Strainer or Cheese Cloth • Jar Carrot Oil Ingredient • Carrots • Essential or Carrier Oils of your choice (In my case I use Vitamin E Oil and Johnson’s Baby Oil)  Preparation   1.

Review: L.A Girl Mattifying Liquid Foundation & Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation

I HAVE BEEN AWAY for soooo long and it was unintentional..... life happened but it's great to be writing again. So I'm going to do something different by reviewing 2 different foundations at a time; L.A. Girl mattifying foundation and maybelline new york fit me foundation. It has been a challenge for me to find a good foundation because of my super oily skin and most times I end up with either fake products or foundations that are not suitable for my skin type. I initially used a water based foundation which is actually not compatible with nigerian sun and in my desperate need to get another one and without research I bought the L.A Girl tube packaged foundation which the seller swore was matte and would be good on me 😩 Guys, after a month of usage, I did my research and finally got the maybelline fit me and I will be reviewing it too on this post. So leggo! L.A. Girl Mattifing Foundation  607 Company Promises 100% Natural Wear Waterproof Oil Control
