WEEKEND DOWNLOAD: OWANBEFUL

What!.......what’s the time???.....


*Rushes in* *....Puts hands on head* What happened?.....why so many straight faces??...haaa!!!!.... *kneels down* I am so sorry I left for too long... Mama had to work and mama was tired...I’ve got to make money baybay!.. Thank you for understanding.  

Before I start any gist, I have an advice for everyone. If you are ever travelling out of Lagos, please do a research on the place you are going. I was having faith that there was going to be good network in Ondo State but my faith let me down big time. Immediately I got there, I put on my swift and there was a big NO NETWORK on it....like there’s no Ondo plan for swift yet...I was totally “internetless”...LOL... Even my phone sef, it was only when I stepped out of my hotel room, I'll have small network and so I can post comments....before I say scoobi doobi doo its gone again. But all the same it was a good experience. I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that said happy birthday to my bestie. That babe was crying like a baby. She was so overwhelmed ehn....I'm sure if she ever see’s anyone of you she would cry again. Thank you so much. God bless us all.

Also guess who visited last week.... the biggest man I know on blogsville...Mr. Mannie and my blog role model....Berry Dakara. I love this woman ehn #nohomo o... I saw their comments and I just started doing my special moonwalk.  Mannie thank you so much for stopping by. Berry thank you big. God bless you.  I hope you are here to stay o. Hehehe.

Also, we got an email from a website. They said they would love to share some of our articles on their website and I was like WHAT!!!!..... really??... mehn we are going PLC o. So I want to open this blog to everyone. If you are a writer... whether as a passion, as a job, or something you pass time with, you can send some of your articles here. You never know who would be reading and who would be interested in your work. Never say never.

I also want to use this opportunity to tender an apology to Onyeziri Maureen. I have been angry with my cousin for not giving me the proper information. She sent me an article like it was written by her and I gave her all the credit. Maureen I am so sorry. You are a great writer I must say. Thank you for not pressing charges...*big grin*. God bless you.

All protocols have been duly observed!...or is there something I’m missing out ....naah!...we good...


Oya now to the main gist abeg *gbeborun mode activated.....drops tray from my head and pulls out a stool...LOL*...where do I start from ooo.. Ok let me start from the beginning...First the journey was 8 hours long....like seriously 8 gaddamn bloddy, nerve wrenching, butt numbing, mind fumbling, brain torching hours. I am never travelling by road... ever again. If the mode of transportation doesn't fly or glide,or disappears and re-appears, ayam not going. Ki lo de? How do people do it? I can never go through what I went through on Thursday and Sunday o. It was a terrible experience sitting for that long.  My bum bum was just paining me, in fact sef, it has reduced in size due to the tension and excess pressure.

How did it go? Mehn it wasn't easy o. I was hired to do the makeover for the bridal train. The girls were 7 in number so the bride hired three makeup artists. The plan was that I was going to do makeup for 4 people, another babe would do for the remaining 3, then the third makeup artist (the fabulous Ronke who is also the bride's cousin) would do the make up for the bride. The agreement was for both engagement and white wedding (Friday and Saturday). 


On the engagement day, the bride fired the other makeup artist (definitely not Ronke). So I was given an offer... do the makeup for 7 people and there would be more money. In my mind I'm like 'no way.....this is not happening' but the money was looking very attractive and besides, there was practically no other option.  So I decided to do it *wink*. I made up for 5 girls on the engagement day and was to take on 7 girls the next day...*Phew*.  I had to wake up at 4am on Saturday to start everyone's makeup cos they had to get to church by 9am. It wasn't funny but it was worth it.


Let me divert a little here...someone asked me this question before and someone still asked me over the weekend. They asked what the secret to a good makeup is? Is it good foundation or blending or the set spray? My own secret is.....wait for  it.........................................................................GOD!....*smiles*. He puts a finishing touch to all my work. I am not bragging but I have never been fired on a job before or told 'I don't like what you did on my face'. There are times I do a job and I'm looking at my work and I know it’s not a good job.....for example there was this time I was called to a music video shoot set to do the makeup for one musician babe. This babe is not the ugliest woman I've seen and she is not the finest I've seen also. By the time I was done with her face, I didn't like what I was seeing. Everything was just looking wrong. She looked at herself in the mirror and she was almost licking my feet. She was just blushing....and was saying thank you all the time. Even the producer said his camera loves my job and I just turned to le boo and gave him the 'what's going on here' look. What I usually do before I start any job is I look at my palm and I pray for them. I say to them 'make me proud' and when I start working I always pray. I don't chat with my clients all the time. I say something and I shut up and I keep praying. When I'm done, I ask God to put the finishing touches and he does. I am not perfect but I have a perfect God. No matter the job you are doing, you can try it. It always works. I just shared a secret....oya pay me now now!. Hehehe


I wasn't able to take so many pictures. I had limited time to work and so I couldn't take all the pictures but I took some. The photographer promised to send me some more pictures. ...when he does I promise to show everyone here but the few ones I have, I would share.




I love her facial features




I also got a goodie bag and this was what was inside my goodie bag.
Air freshner, Hamana roll on, Hamana lip balm, Hamana body mist and the air freshner sticks (don't know what they are called o)

Finally to every bride to be in the house, I have an advice for you.... Please get an event planner and let the person carry the entire burden of the event. You really don't need to stress yourself at all on or before your wedding. This bride was all over the place and it wasn't a funny sight at all.... She almost even started serving food to the attendees because she wanted everything to be perfect...I felt so sorry for her...I felt like I should just help her with all the wahala...but mhen...Omolade Akogun (nee Aruna) is one strong woman! Both physically and mentally.... And then the worst happened.... her cake fell down flat on the floor. She had a very elegant tall cake and it was a beauty to behold. The way the thing fell down like the wall of jericho was shocking....I was amazed too....You can only imagine how upset she was... I was just praying  she enjoyed her wedding...anyway the Mc (Mr. Le boo) was fantastic and it was only when the reception started I saw the bride smile...so I’m sure she had fun.... I took a picture of the only surviving cake. Here it is.


And the decoration was fine. I loved it.
I didn't take a picture of myself because I was looking very tired. I'm sorry *sad face* but y'all know I still looked fine.  Hehehe...I might be able to get a picture of me from the photographer though...then you’ll see what I looked at


All in all, I had fun.  I met some pretty amazing people and they've been checking my blog since. I actually called myself a blogger....like I introduced myself as a blogger....hahaha. Welcome to the family everyone. I'm sure you would have fun here. Oya chop first timer kiss abeg *mwahhhhhh*


I must give it to Ondo people.... Ondo people know how to party jare. No wonder my mum likes party...she is an Ondo woman. There was food and drinks and loads of alcohol. The rice was very sweet ehn.... y'all know I like party rice na and this tasted so nice.


 P.S : Happy birthday to the sexiest (like seriously.... I am not lying o) blogger I know. You think I'm lying? Oya go and see for yourself. She blogs at www.realcilverly.blogspot.com then come back and tell me that I'm lying. She looks like Beyoncé's younger sister....hehehe. Also, Happy birthday to my friend and client, Sarah Joseph - Tiamiyu. I wish you both long life and prosperity..... good health and all the good things of life. Have a lovely birthday today. Oya make una chop kiss o jare *mwaaahhh*.

Who missed me? I missed me too and I missed everyone.  So how was your weekend....gimme beta gist abeg.
Have a fabulous week ahead. I love you all like kilode mehn...hehehehe
Cheers...
