The rays from the sun penetrated through my window curtains, and landed on my face, causing me put an abrupt end to my sweet, though un-comfortable sleep (NEPA did not feature in the nights crashing LOL). After plenty turning, rolling and stretching, I finally got out of bed, said my thank you – good morning prayers and as I looked at my phone, I saw it was 6.54 am, APRIL 16th!.............APRIL 16th was finally here...The day I have dreamt of almost all my life.....The day I have been looking forward to since the beginning of this year......The day Moby Impressionz Make-up Studio is opened officially......YAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!................thanks be to God.
I fully got up and out of the room by 7.am, which meant I had exactly 6 hours to the official launch time. It was like someone just pressed fast forward somewhere... I started moving like Flash, trying to get things done. I had to Iron shirts for Moby Impressionz crew members ( Nepa had received brain...LOL), then arrange and re-arrange my make-up box, then clean the house a bit, then did my make-up...PHEW!....ee no easy.
Tito had gone out very early to look for fuel so we had to wait for him a while (This fuel wahala sef can like to want to cause yawa). At about 10.30 –ish, he was back...and yes he got fuel *big grin*.
My parents were the first to arrive, and Iya Dayo brought chicken and Moi-moi, and Daddy brought some more drinks. The launch was already looking very perfect and for like the first time in my life, I wasn’t worrying at a major event. I was calm, happy and confident in God that all would be well.
Soon after, people started arriving and lending helping hands so less stress for me. My decorator and bestie, Bimbo, arrived and she worked her magic.
Did I mention, my god daughter came too, Leah... she is so adorable. Her mum took these lovely pictures. Yes she is talented. She is the CEO of Black-Grey-White Studios. Super mom.

My Pastor got there late.. Why? FUEL... What's up with this fuel situation na. Oga Buhari, abeg give us light and fuel ASAP or else we all will go Bruce lee on your Hausa a$$...hehe.
Anyway, not too long after, he arrived with his lovely wife and immediately, the event started. Was I nervous? Honestly I don’t know. I was just there sha...LOL.
After the plenty prayer and blessings, it was time for Donation... you know na,..as a Lagos babe (*clears throat*...if you haven't made your donations yet, it is not late ooo...Ehen). *YAAY*!!!!!...We have money now (if I am owing you money, ping me now lemme pay my debt...hehe..just joking o).

My sister is the bombest. She made this very lovely cake for me...she is good. I know it looks good but it tasted even better..hehe. It felt like my birthday + My wedding reception + my graduation +.......LOL.
|cake plus iced tea = 8888|
Why do I think some of y'all are angry with me?
Okay truthfully I was going to invite everyone... I swear but I didn't think it was a big deal. I just wanted my pastor to come over, pray and everyone goes home until Tito suggested having a small party and my mum was drawing up programme for the event and my sister suggested cake and everyone was suggesting.... and I didn't have enough cash...
Truthfully. I had a budget of 40 people but people were just turning up. I am so sorry guys...please forgive me. We will have a big party soon...don't worry. When we move to our permanent site na. I promise.
