SitPretty Beauty of the Day!!!

Hey Pretties,

Today's beauty of the day is none other than Patricia Ozegbe who many know as 'Sparkle Fashion'( a fashion accessory business based in New Jersey, United States with a branch in Ikeja, Lagos). 

We struck a friendship a few years back when i was seeking how to improve on my craft & source for products from the United States. She offered to help & that was how the journey began.

She was in Lagos for her cousin's wedding & you can be sure i was the mua of choice *wide grin*

A May to Remember!!!!

Hey Pretties,

If you don't follow me already, my instagram handle @sitprettymakeupmaverick hosts a lot of more recent updates as my owning a studio in lagos has taken so much time from me.  Having to shuutle between Ajah & Lekki has had me on the road for close to 5 hours daily , that the time to blog has become very precious.

So what happened in May? Yes, Nigeria's President & Vice-president Elect were sworn into office. But what is most memorable to me is that i spent the weekend of the Inauguration, dolling up the Wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria ( Glory to God ).

This wasn't like what i had experienced before, i was rubbing shoulders with people of repute & good status. It wasn't bridal makeup that i had over the years carved a niche in. This was makeup for a high-profile individual who is very modest in everything she does ( i couldn't work on her brows for instance, the change to her face would have being too dramatic & oh no, the script didn't involve drama ).

Thankfully, i had met her once through the referral of a very wonderful client of mine, Mrs F. It was for a gala event before the elections took place & it was just a 20-minute encounter. But i never expected to get a message that read ' I have been asked to bring you to Abuja for some days '.

Whether i like it or not, SitPretty made history & will be in any pictures you see of the beautiful wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, you can be sure of that.

I give God praise for his faithfulness & support. Indeed a diligent (wo) man , will stand before Kings & not common people.

From Kaduna with Love!!!

Hey Pretties,

so last month, work took me to the town of Barnawa in Kaduna State all for Oyindamola Adebosin.

Referred by my dearest family friend, Nkem, i didn't meet Oyinda till i got to Kaduna even though she resides in Lagos. Kaduna, was the location of her Traditional Wedding as respect had to be paid to her parents who are based in Kaduna State.

As usual, Aero Contractors moved our 3:50pm flight to 5:15pm which seemed like the longest wait of my life. But, trust the capable Oyinda to have sorted the flight, airport transportation & hotel accomodation of all her vendors flying in from Lagos.

On the flight, i met her trusted Videographer Tolu ( Instagram - @tolusholanke ), her Photographer Jide ( Instagram - @jideakinyemi ) & 2nd photographer Kunle ( @elnukawo ). So, riding 45minutes to Barnawa was a bit interesting.

On getting to the bride's house to get acquainted, we met a welcome party. Suya, lots of food & drinks & an amazing DJ who worked his magic, made the long trip worth it.

Fast forward to the next day, the trad ceremony wasn't to begin till 3pm, so imagine how my morning was. Absolutely restful!

For her dress change, she changed from her Blue Monotone Ensemble to a Pink Monotone ensemble. At the end of the day, i had a completely satisfied bride.

Here's to more visits to Kaduna in the nearest future.
