A Glam Wedding in London

Late last year my love, Mobyz, got married in London and I had the pleasure of being her makeup artist. She wanted a natural glam look and I think we achieved just that. Check out some of the images from her super fun wedding. I wish I could relive this trip…but oh well, memories are also priceless 🙂

I pray for marriage blessings for she and Charles. And here is to wishing them many, many, many wonderful years of love and happiness together!

Below are some great images from Litehouse Photography

Where have you been?? Okay, Okay…Let’s RECAP!!

Hello Guys,

Happy July 4th!!!

I am not sure if I should just act like nothing happened **covers face in shame** or address my absence? For the sake of transparency, I have decided to share. I have been gone for a minute due to a hectic work schedule, personal commitments and a lack of inspiration, but now I am back and I am excited to share about my passion. It is ironic, because I thought about this blog a lot while I was gone and the direction I want to take the blog. I started this blog almost four years ago, and I have changed so much…for one, I am older and I have also matured as an artist. I will still use this space to express myself and share on the topic of makeup, but I want to make sure I am posting what I am truly passionate about and what you guys want to see.

So, let me update you…and let’s start from the last time I was here:

2012 was both amazing and busy. I want to take a moment to reflect on all the great things that happened last year with my Makeup Artistry. I continued to hone my skills. I partook in photoshoots, worked with many fabulous women, was part of a successful makeup seminar in Lagos, attended the makeup show in NYC, trained with Temptu (and I am now an Airbrush Certified Makeup Artist) and I met many amazing makeup artists in my travels. Last but not least, I was able to provide makeup services for many of my lovely brides’ on their special day.

One such bride, was Dale, who got married last year. She is one of my favorite brides to date. I was referred to her by lovely sister who owns Kenjah Bath and Body. The moment I met her, I knew we would be a perfect match. I have to say, she has such an amazing spirit. Her wedding was Chic!!! The ambiance of the location and the feeling in the air was what I like to call “Grown and Sexy”. I loved her dress as it was unique and simple. Her whole bridal party was so much fun to work with. I am blessed be able to work with wonderful people like them.

On to 2013…so far this year has been super busy and interesting. 2013 started out on a great note…We won the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2013 and it was such a great feeling. This prestigious award recognizes the top five percent of Wedding Professionals nationwide. Thanks to all my beautiful brides…thanks for choosing me to be part of your special day!


I look forward to sharing about what I have been up to so far this year and also posting about requested topics and more.

What have you been up to since we last spoke? Is there anything in particular you would like to see on this blog? I have missed you all.


New Year Update…

Happy, Happy, Happy New year!!!

I feel blessed to have made it to 2012.  Saying I have missed blogging is an understatement, but I have been soo busy with work, that I have not been able to find a balance with work, life and blogging.

That brings me to my blogging goals for 2012. I started off this year evaluating what direction I wanted to take this blog. When I first started this blog, I really wanted the blog to be the perfect venue to let my ideas run free, share information and to meet like-minded people.  Through out the past 2 years, I have been able to do that, but I think I could have done a better job with meeting my initial goals.

So, this year I am on a mission to interact more with the blogging community, work on posting more of my work and sharing  even more ideas and information. It might take me a little while to get back running, but please bear with me.

I have some L.I.F.T posts, bridal posts from weddings I did in 2011 and Jan 2012 and some beauty tips coming up.

And because a blog post is useless without an image 😛

Below is a sneak peak at one of my “most favoritest” brides in the whole wide world, Temi at her traditional engagement 🙂

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.

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.
