Welcome to the February, the Love Month.

We know that a lot of weddings will happen in the coming weeks, so we have a great offer for you:

Place an order for 6 or more fascinators THIS MONTH, and get a FREE ENGAGEMENT VEIL and a FREE FASCINATOR for your little bride! 

Fascinators ordered must be at least N2,000 each, to qualify for this deal.

My sister got married in December and I got to work on quite a number of accessories for her wedding. I'm not complaining though, I got paid, in more ways than one. #businessesgrowwhenfamilyandfriendspay. Can I get an 'Amen'?

This was very much a DIY wedding, we did a lot of things ourselves. I think one of the most thrilling was the wedding center pieces. My sister and I got some old wine bottles and employed the entire family; we scrubbed the labels off, sprayed them gold and handed them over to our wedding decorator (Rubies and Emerald - who used them beautifully.

Making this veil was so exciting, that I'm now going to offer it on my catalog. So, call me if you need a Cathedral veil like this one my sister wore. Available in many colors, and in various lengths, at cheaper prices than you will find at your favorite Bridal store.

I just had to throw this in there; I tied a lot of geles those two days.

We used the frame of a Chinese Hand Fan for her engagement fan; it was much larger than the regular ones you get elsewhere. Order one like this from me!

My sister is a #Naturalista, and she wanted to rock her natural hair for her wedding. We had found a Natural Hair stylist, but she gave my sister one of her workers who didn't know the first thing about handling Natural Hair. So, after a failed trial appointment, we decided that her hair would be done by 'Mide.

Her hair rocked!
 I made her bridesmaids fascinators of course. And the Ankara roses they held onto.

We found a tutorial for fabric roses on the internet and used it to make this bouquet from this beautiful red Ankara fabric.

Some other pieces I've worked on recently:

Let's all have a great week!
