I get quite a few emails asking why I don’t feature beauty spots/stores located on the mainland or do I only feature places I like and the funniest of all, why is it that I only feature my friend’s businesses. First off, I WISH all the businesses I’ve featured so far were owned by my friends, can you imagine the perks? But on a serious note, I love to get feedback about posts and these emails got me thinking about 2 things:
  1. Perhaps these people are new to my blog 
  2. I definitely need to discover a lot more places

To address point number 1, For the sake of the possible newbies let me take you all a little ways down memory lane and the reason why I started this blog. I started Beauty In Lagos because I wanted to share all that Lagos had to offer in terms of beauty, I wanted to share the then budding beauty industry and all I discovered with as many people as possible. I have featured quite a few locations on the mainland since I started BiL, yes they may not be recent posts, but I have done so. Now I see the industry has grown and there are a LOT more businesses around than when I started so I need some help. Which brings me to address point number 2. I need you guys! I need you, my lovely readers, to start giving me some recommendations of spots that I could visit. Tweet me, send me an Instagram message, hit me up on Facebook, or simply Email me. If there is a makeup store you recently discovered in your area, or a salon that offers great service, whatever it may be, please let me know so I can share! There may be someone who lives in your area and has no idea about this great salon you go to. You can’t imagine the emails/comments I get from readers thanking me for sharing a store because they’d been searching for a particular product for ages, and had concluded they couldn’t find it in Nigeria until they read a certain ‘Out and About’ post. 
Also Business Owners, please don’t be shy I know how difficult it is to get the word out about your business, and I really want to do my bit by sharing it. If you would like me to come visit your space and be featured in the Out and About series, please send me an email. Being featured on ‘Out and About’ comes with a few added extras, so please get in touch to find out more.

Most people tend to think I only visit certain places to share on BiL, and they are indeed right! With the ‘Out and About‘ series my intention is to showcase the Lagos people don’t know about! I want people to go “Oooh, you mean this is available in Lagos!?”. I genuinely enjoy discovering new beauty spots and today’s location is literally a dream! Colors by RL isn’t any ordinary Nail Salon, I’d actually refer to it as a Nail Spa. All their pedicures start from the knee down….. SOLD! I was particularly intrigued by a super cool offering they’ve got, called ‘Pedi-In-A-Box’. Which is quite literally a pedicure in a box. Everything you need for a deluxe pedicure experience is provided in these little hand-size boxes. A 4-step treatment that includes: soak salts, scrubs, foot mask and lotion! They’ve also got a pedicure called ‘Coffee Delight’ which includes a coffee scrub, y’all know how I feel about coffee for the skin!

They’ve also got deluxe manicures which include a collagen mask for your hands. Honestly guys, if you love to indulge in your nails (like I do), this is the spot for you! I’ll be going back in for a deluxe manicure and pedicure soon and will be sure to share my experience! For now enjoy the pictures of this gorgeous space!

So this week I’m taking ‘BiL Out and About‘ to ABUJA! Yves Rocher No. 1 cosmetic brand in France just opened it’s first store in Nigeria, at Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja. If you are like me and are struggling with the pronunciation it’s ‘Eve-Roshay’. I’ve got pictures of the new store as well as some shots from their launch event, but first let me share a little information about the brand.

Yves Rocher’s philosophy is to work in harmony with the environment, as each tree and each plant does with nature. The botanical beauty brand offers a range of skincare and fragrances composed of natural and vegetal ingredients, for both men and women. The brand’s commitment to botanical beauty ensures that every ingredient and formula is guaranteed to be safe and effective. All active ingredients in Yves Rocher products are extracted from plants.

Have a look at the pictures below!
