So the year 2016 is wrapping up in a few hours, and everyone is chanting the New year resolution mantra, giving notes, quotes and epilogues, with the popular one on Instagram #2016BestNine . These notes with artistic pictures from Asiko, a London based, Nigerian photographer took the words out of my mouth, it is practically some of what I learnt in 2016. *You know I love me some deep, artistic, beautiful, storytelling work of arts* So I had to share.

@Asiko_artist What I learnt in 2016
1. Be patient and job st keep creating
2. You are responsible for your happiness
3. Working projects is a more fulfilling way to build a portfolio and a lasting legacy, random one off shoots are out.
4. Collaboration with the right people, are beautiful things to be treasured.
5. The work you put out are like messages in a bottle, you never know how they will come back to you, but they will in ways you never expect.
Releasing 2016 and opening my heart and arms to 2017, it is going to be an amazing one.
My nine of the best from 2016 (well at least as Instagram says anyway) #love #art #photography #portrait #asiko #potd #portraitphotographer #2016bestnine - by  Asiko

Happy New Month dearies, it is the month of February already! I use to think January is the slowest month in the year, but January just went by so fast. I can say this is the fastest January I have seen so far.

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…
