Zainab's editorial look

Hullo ladies…….
So who bathed with warm water and salt this early morning? (I laugh in Spanish). I woke up this early mor-mor to a barrage of blackberry broadcast messages, advising and urging me to bathe with warm water and salt before 6am as doing so would shield me from getting that sickness which should not be named. On getting them, the first thought that came to my mind was ‘Nigerians are a peculiar people…so gullible too!’. Some of the messages said that Adeboye instructed us to do it, some insisted that it was TB Joshua, while others guessed that it was Fr. Mbaka.
So did i do it? Igasikwa! The inconsistency of the messages made me dismiss it as a hoax. It still beats me how someone will just lie on his/her bed, type up some gibberish and start up a rumor.

But that’s not why we are here……

Zainab is currently a ‘Blushes ‘n Dimples’ makeup school student….she’s been training for almost 3 weeks now, and she has about 4 weeks left. Why is this news? Soon, thou shall know why.
Today, i showed her how to do an editorial look for the first time, and i asked her to ‘conjour’ up her own creative look, and this was what she came up with .......
She's learning to pay attention to details, and she's doing a great job at it.

Are you as impressed as i still am? I’m blessed with wonderful students! They are either extremely smart or i'm a really great teacher *chuckles*.

Taking pics of her work

I was actually supposed to show you pictures of her training at the end of her program like i always do, but i was soooo excited about this look that i just had to share it with immediate effect. I’m always so happy when they get it right.

Good night dears….see you tomorrow (by HIS grace). And if you happen to get a broadcast message asking you to off ya pant, wear it on ya head and run round your room chanting ‘Ebola shall not defeat me!!!’, DON’T DO IT!
