  • This whole story brought tears to my eyes. No, It isn't pathetic! It is Inspiring.
    All I can see in this story is
    GraceHustle & Beauty You know that grace that turns an Agege bread seller (Street Hawker) to a Model? When the heavenly endorses you, other brands will recognize you. 

  • Here is the compelling Story of Olajumoke Orisaguna by Ty Bello the Genius Photographer, the story is popular, but I want to celebrate it in my own way, because it inspired me and I felt it differently!  

  • Tinie Tempa the African American music artist, was in Lagos Nigeria, and TY Bello happened to be taking street photo shoots of him, when God the divine director, directed Jumoke to the Scene of the shoot. The 27 years old uneducated mother of 2 who can't express herself in English and wife to a sliding door installer husband in Osun state, came to Lagos with one of her children to Hawk bread on the street, just to make a living, since her hair dressing business in Osun state wasn't paying. She accidentally but divinely appeared in one of the photo shoots with bread on her head. When the photos were released, people wondered if she was really a model, that was when TY decided to look for the young lady who added meaning to her shoot, so she can help add a meaning to her life. The rest is Endorsement or history as they call it.

    It wasn't an accident or coincidence, it was divine incidence called Grace. When God the master craft, sculpts your story, you will come out looking like a masterpiece. 
    Jumoke was noticed while she
    Hustled>>> The struggle may not pay now, but don't stop working, do not fold your hands, when God wants to bless you, he needs to use your handwork, no matter how little or irrelevant it may be, God isn't looking for the qualified, he qualifies the called. Your grammar, background, CV & title may be a criteria to man, but not God, Only him gives Beauty for ashes .
    @tybello @bimpeonakoya @thisdaystyle@tinetempa and all who God used as an instrument thanks for this beautiful and Inspiring story.
    The Story in this #Photography is Powerful! May that Grace locate Us as we Hustle and may it make our lives a Beautiful story #ITapIntoThisBlessing#Amen #WomenHelpingWomen#GodBlessOurHustle Only the Grace Of God makes all things Beautiful, Brews you into the finest of wine and takes you places. 
    As we celebrate this, we shall all be celebrated soon🙏🙆

Hi lovelies, it feels good to be back. I have been away for a little too long in the east, Anambra State Nigeria precisely for my late grandma's burial. I was so busy that i couldn't blog, but am back, so watch this SPACE  for sights and sounds from the east

@ my late grandma's burial


Happy New Month! Welcome to the "ember" quarter of the year. So I am starting a Fashion DIY channel, I will always find a way to link it here on the blog, so watch out! Today, I will be showing a practical demonstration on how I transformed my bronze hoop earring, using African print "Ankara" I have had this bronze earring for 5 years now, it started wearing off, then I tot to myself why discard it? Just transform it! So I got some pieces left from the Ankara material I made a dress from, and Viola a new earring was born! THINGS YOU NEED:
Ankara fabric (Quite Small to go round your earring or pieces from your tailors shop) make sure to select the pieces with lovely, regular pattern.A hoop earringUhu gum (a garment friendly adhesive)Scissors 

Cut through the fabric vertically, long enough to go round the earring, Cut the tip of the already cutout vertical fabric into an inverted triangle shape, this is to make it tip smaller and easier to start wrapping at the beg…
