The Girly Girl Experiment!


Hello everyone and just in case I haven’t done so already (I have) Merry Christmas and I hope all your champagne wishes and caviar dreams came true.

On to the crux of the matter. Now, I will never be able to post advice on tried and tested hair or make-up routines; I still don’t know what those weird shaped sponges are used for nor can I say for sure if JBCO is helping my edges :(.

I am not a beauty or ‘fashiony’ person and this was recently the topic of discussion since I decided to give myself a little ‘treat yo self’ makeover. I tried the whole makeup thing and when I went shopping for the products I felt like I’d just landed in a non-english speaking country and holy shit, even the cheap make-up is expensive AF!

I am very comfortable in my skin, imperfections and all. Recently though almost everyday actually, the people I hang around has been telling me just how much of a ‘girly girl’ I’m not.

First off, what the fuck is a girly girl? Any hoot, I was able to transform myself into a swanย ‘girl’ -apparently all this time I was a boy- for the company’s dinner and everyone was floored. “Wow, you look so girly and pretty and unrecognisable -_-.”

Long story short, I am launching an experiment which I will be hosting on my fresh off the mint Instagram, yeah I went and got an Instagram account ‘yoll’.

I still feel like a fossil navigating this manner of evil called social media, but I have been managing with the help of my girl Tomiwa over there at Naija Girl On a Budget who is absolutely adorable. If you haven’t already go and check her out, Now!

Okay, I’m rambling again! Back to the experiment. First off, you’ll meet KedawithanI in the flesh (virtually of course) and essentially, I will be exploring exactly what it is to be a ‘girly girl’.ย 

Does this sound interesting? What are your thoughts on the whole idea of a ‘girly girl’? Let me know in the comments below. Do you wear make up? Are you for style or comfort? Do you think farting in front of your man/woman is gross? Can you belch the alphabet (I can’t). Do you wear heels?

All of this and much more will be explored. Let’s get the conversation going below and follow me on Instagram for ย the official launch of ‘The Girly Girl Experiment.’ Next Year (hahah)ย

  1. Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ to you too keda. Just seeing that you published this article today makes me feel lazy except if it was a scheduled post.

    I promised my blog readers ab end of the year article… As a matter of fact, I sent them mails to tell me what they want me to blog about… They all replied me and I’m yet to pick a topic talk less of start writing about it and we’ve got just 5 days left to leave 2017.

    Nice blog Keda… Mind checking out my blog? Here’s the URL

  2. Aww Keda๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

    Someone called me a girly girl๐Ÿ˜ซ
    To be honest, I love make-up but it can be a little, okay more than a little, pricey. And foundation breaks me out. So I just stick with basic eyeliner, mascara and lipstick.

    I actually had to challenge myself to learn how to draw proper brows on my face before the year runs out and I think I succeeded. Yay me!

    As for heels, as lovely as they can be, they are a pain in the behind! Whenever I wear heels, I make sure to have slippers in my bag. I can’t come and die.

      1. lol… I tell you, I can never achieve those flawless BASIC makeup looks let alone the advanced looks., try as I might… haha… most times I don’t even try… *facepalm*


  3. I would deny being a girly girl but will never leave the house without lipstick on and a tube in my coat pocket, I wear eye makeup 90% of the time and have a love affair with high heels (shoes, sandals, boots, flip flops). I can’t resist a scarf decorated with skulls. AND…I can work a drill, a skill saw, a chop saw, a chain saw etc… Today I believe that girls/women/chicks/birds/all women can be anything and do anything – just remember your lipstick. Good luck with your Instagram.

  4. I say, screw those people. Lmao!! I am DEFINITELY not a girly girl… I don’t even have female friends.. And I’m ok with that. Nothing wrong with not wearing makeup and heels. We should all just be whoever makes us comfortable and enjoy the ride! My male friends all tell me that I’m more of a man then they are. Ha ha!
