UnlockHope Uganda

I've teamed up with the people over at UnlockHope to raise awareness about this cause that aims to break the poverty cycle in Uganda by bringing education to girls. Girls in Uganda tend to marry at a young age and end up having large families due to the lack of family planning. Also, they work in poorly paid jobs that require a lot of labour from them. To overcome this, UnlockHope has partnered with Think Humanity to provide the girls in Uganda with healthcare, food, a home and education. 

When you make a purchase at UnlockHope, you contribute to helping the organisation pay for the necessary expenses - healthcare, food, housing, utilities, education, clothing, toiletries, etc. You've also heard about Emma Watson's HeForShe campaign that is trying to change the lives of females all over the world. If you support her campaign, then why not start changing a life by visiting UnlockHope to make a purchase so that the girls in Uganda can continue receiving education.

I am very impressed by the product range over at UnlockHope. Apparels are well designed, keeping up with the latest trends. The graphics are incredible and the captions are well thought of. I am proud to display my UnlockHope products to you in this post and I hope you will visit the site to get your own tee or accessory!
The first one over here is from the unisex section in size XS. It is a baseball tee with a caption "Not all who wander are lost". You've probably seen this caption elsewhere and being a wunderlust, you definitely need such a shirt. This one has a cute compass print on it and the material of the shirt is super soft and comfy to wear. I paired it with a plaid shirt and denim shorts for a laid back look. It is a great outfit to wear to school and show off your UnlockHope pride!
Just a different layout. I paired it with cut out booties but it will go great with sneakers as well!
The next shirt is a maroon crew neck shirt from the women's section in size S. The caption reads "Lions don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep". I think this is a rather empowering message and tells you to be confident of who you are. It reminds me of Deuteronomy 28:13 - "The Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will only be above, and you will not be underneath". So yeah, I think the message of this shirt is really good for everyone. This one comes in an equally soft and comfy tee that gives a slightly loose fit. The print looks great on the baseball tee as well. I was totally considering between this and that! 
Wear your shirts together with your bff because they look so cute together! Look stylish, stay comfy and support a good cause over at UnlockHope! Remember to use the code "megoosta" to get $10 off!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…
