So, last week Sunday was my birthday and I'm so grateful to God for everything. And once again, I want to thank everyone who sent messages, called and posted on their timelines and statuses ,y'all are amazing.
My photoshoot oh! my photoshoot, I do not know how it happened, but it did and it was amazing.
Initially, I had no plans at all, like I knew there was gon be a shoot, I just didn't know what to do yet. So I wanted something dramatic, with lots of costumes and stuff, then I wanted something up close you know, show a little skin....then I wanted something African.....and the last idea was something boss-ish.
And boom!! It was may, and I still hadn't decided what I wanted to do. But then I had this dinner dress my mom got me for no reason, and then I had this white jacket my roomie called medivial and said I looked like someone from England in the 60s. And I also had this cute and sexy nightie that I always feel good in....you know... *sob*. Ok so I got to work, started mixing and matching and got two outfit. Now the last one just hit me.
I love headwraps, and I've always wanted to do a shoot with one, so I got a clothe I took from my mom, tore a tiny line and sew it round my plain black dress, and his the hands, making it look like a breattube dress. And boom! #africanwoman.
So on the day of the shoot I was still very clueless, was going up and about searching for a makeup artist, I eventually found one, then I had to get a photographer, and I did...he said to call him in a few hours. After I was done with my makeup, I tried calling the dude but he wasn't picking up, while all this was going on, my makeup artist brought out her camera to take picture of her work, and the pictures came out really well, so I took a bold step and asked her if she could do the shoot instead and to my surprise she said es, and here we are with these amazing pictures I am so proud of.
So first off, my dinner dress. Like I said earlier, I have no clue why she got it for me, I've never been to any dinner, excluding prom. I planned to attend my departmental dinner tho' but I don't have a date and no one wants to ask me to be their date *sob* but anyways the occasion will come....i have that feeling.
Next up, my handiwork. #blackdontcrack #proudlyafrican (do people still use that tag....im lost)
And lastly....drum roll.....
SHE A BOSS OR WAH
