My very well spent sunday afternoon … So glad I was part of the initiative to make young girls understand that they can cover up properly and remain very fashionable. .

#baphotoandfaces and #styledbybie in conjunction with Lagoon Secondary Lekki organized The La Mode event aimed at educating young girls on fashion and style decency. .

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Bible said that, “They came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.” [1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad person, it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when people’s part in your story is over, so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead. You’ve got to know when it’s over.

Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have, He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat, I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay. Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn’t belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains LET IT GO!!!

If someone can’t treat you right, love you back, and see your worth LET IT GO!!!

If someone has angered you LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge LET IT GO!!!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better LET IT GO!!!

If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even try to help themselves LET IT GO!!!

If you’re feeling depressed and stressed LET IT GO!!!

If you’re feeling depressed and stressed LET IT GO!!!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself
and God is saying “take your hands off of it,” then you need to LET IT GO!!!

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.

GOD is doing a new thing for you!


Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then..LET IT GO!!!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying “take your hands off of it,” then you need to… LET IT GO!!!

Meet Tallas, a beautiful prom queen whose makeup I had the honor of doing for her prom trial session and the day of her prom! We couldn’t decide on which lip color to go with. I want to hear your take. Which color do you prefer?  Burnt red (top right), dark nude (bottom left), or baby pink (bottom right)?


Today, it was an absolute pleasure being honored at Dark is Lovely, Inc.'s 2 Year Anniversary Women's Expo Event! I made new, quality, business connections, reunited with old high school and college friends, did free beauty demos using AJCRIMSON's BB Creams (which were an absolute hit!!), and met with some of my super sweet YouTube subscribers from New York!! :) What a blessing. Thank you all for having me. God bless you.

Also, it was an honor doing photography work today for the funeral events of the former Prime Minister of the Republic of Sudan and South Sudan. May the soul of General Fabian Agamlong Guem Bol rest in perfect peace. Amen. Special thank you to Bona Malwal, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, who made me feel at home and collected a ton of my business cards. I’m forever grateful.  
Do you know how good it feels to work so hard, no sleep for DAYS, no time to think of food, just working, praying, brainstorming, researching, networking, fasting, online activity blasting, just to genuinely let the world know about your artistic craft, and then to have someone FINALLY notice and give you an opportunity? As in, to TRUST you with major events in their lives and believe you can execute it? My Lord. I’m not sure if you all know how it feels. But I’ll let you know right’s like nothing I’ve ever felt in my whole entire life. And all I can say at the end of the day, as always, is I thank you Father.   Thank you so much for reading. With great love,

As you saw yesterday in my post, I was very excited about providing photography services for the Ambassador of the Embassy of the Republic of South Sudan to The United States AND his entire team of Diplomats!! While shooting in the Ambassador’s office though, I kept looking up at a picture of him with U.S. President Barack Obama. I took a mental note of the picture to ingrain in my heart, mind, body, and soul the heights I wish to take B.A. Photo and Faces. To, one day, be fortunate enough to do recurrent photography and makeup work for our U.S. President and First Lady, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Gisele Knowles, and the list goes on. If I continue to believe in BIG, BIG will come to be!

Great news!

In honor of Women’s History Month, I’m EXCITED to announce that I’ve been selected as one of the Phenomenal Women who will be speaking at the 2nd Anniversary event of Dark IS Lovely Young Ladies and Women’s Mentoring Program. The organization’s mission is to develop confident, motivated, and career oriented ladies through mentorship, networking, and event planning. I am truly honored, and cannot wait until next weekend! :)

My God is SO good! Thanks so much for reading.

With love,
