Hello Guys!! I didn’t mean to neglect my dear blog. I really didn’t…I have been extremely busy. I hope you all had a good week. I wanted to give a few updates about what’s been going on with me. 

As I said in a previous post, I had the privilege of working on a photoshoot for Essence magazine back in November. I did the Makeup for a wonderful lady called Yvonne for the “Fit and Fab”article. I was impressed with her dedication and success with losing weight. It motivated me to start making some changes in my life as well.  

The article is now out in the March 2010 Issue (with First Lady, Michelle and President Barak Obama on the cover). Please pick up your copy and spread the word about PINK DIAMONDS by Tiwa Lawrence.  

March 2010 Essence Magazine

I also mentioned in a past entry that I would be discussing my skin care regime and my natural hair story, but I put a hold on those entries, because some things have since changed in my routine and I wanted to make sure the results are perfected (well perfected for me, lol) before I talked about it.  

I really do love each and every one of you. I appreciate everyone who continues to visit my blog. I would love to receive feedback on what you would like to see featured on future blog entries. 

And like always, I look forward to hearing from you.   



Essence Photoshoot

I did a photoshoot with Essence Magazine yesterday. This is a big deal for me because being published in Essence has been one of my goals for as long as I can remember. How many times have I flipped through the pages of Essence and imagined my work displayed (a million times to be exact, lol). I am so thankful for the opportunity and I can’t wait until the February 2010 issue hits the shelf. I will definitely keep you all posted and I will tell you more when the issue is out 🙂  

Below are some pictures from my camera at the photo shoot. I will say the lady I worked with was inspirational and the photographer was great. I AM EXCITED, about seeing the finished work. Adeola, thanks for your help. You were a great assistant.
