Hello Lovelies!!!! I love love the month of June!!! Yaaassss! Not just because it’s my birth month, but because I had such wonderful experiences this month!
I made new decisions this month, took definite steps to achieving them and seeing good results so far!
I’ll like to give great thanks to my Almighty Father, God for yet another year on earth , I promised Him that if He taries, I’ll live till a good old age and I’ll return to Him empty! So help me God…
I also want to thank my wonderful Parents Pastor and Pastor Mrs Emmanuel and Adaeze Ezeka for bringing me into this world and for nurturing me in all ways until my Darling Husband took over. Lol! He is a fantastic man and He is doing an amazing job taking care of me, teaching and guiding me in all I do. Zakari Atta I love youuuuu!!!! It might amaze you to know that my work ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ was his idea! *wink
So this June to remember began with my daughter’s birthday! Marvel Atta turned 4 on the 7th of June and by God, she is a marvel indeed. Mummy loves you mama!!!
In June also I got a call to come makeup Mrs FOLORUNSHO ALAKIJA, the richest Black woman in the world! Wow! What a milestone in my career as a makeup artist! It was a shoot put together by Aunty Eme of John 3vs3 hats has bee Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija personal Milliner for over 15 years and my friend and photographer of the day Anita Cruz, who I met last year in New York and we get to do stuff together whenever she is in Nigeria.
A great privilege it was as I had an opportunity to spend the whole day with this very inspiring woman. I watched her have fun and still have time to sign papers while doing so. Humble and God fearing, she had no airs at all. I was so comfortable and relaxed I knew it was going to end well. We had some sumptuous meatball like thingy to eat( plenty of it) with drinks and chocolates!!! And then mummy Alakija ended the day for me by dancing the traditional ‘etigi’ dance popular among the Calabar people , as she tried to imitate my mum whom she had seen dancing before. It was indeed a day I’ll never forget!!!! Here is to many more Ma!
Then on to the LMUF4 , The Lagos Makeup Fair 4 on the 21st of June. I still remember the first LMUF and hold it dear to my heart because I was an exhibitor, however Pops Concept and Omolola Falaye did an amazing job at putting a state of the art event together. Thanks to Lola our makeup fairs in Nigeria is up to standard as makeup fairs abroad. Well done Pops Concept! For the first time ever we had a makeup runway and I was privileged to be one of the features!!! It gave me a feeling of euphoria!!! I got to experience the walk down the run way like all them Georgio Armani’s and Ejiro Amis Tafiri’s!!! Heheeehee. So this is what they enjoy eh!!!??? Lol! What a feeling! Thanks to all the sponsors, Pops Concept, Gifty’s Daughter and Makeup Revolution- I’m still drooling over my goody bag and I hope to do a review soon.
