Event: October 1 Movie Premiere : Red Carpet Photos & Review

It’s finally here, the widely anticipated movie of the year will finally hit the screens on.. yes you guessed it.. October 1st! Many expected the film to be released last year but Kunle Afolayan’s work of art wasn’t going to be rushed and it’s well worth the wait.  A poignant story set against the backdrop of colonial Nigeria makes a beautiful masterpiece.  You don’t realize how long the film is, it takes you along a roller coaster of emotions. Laugher, Love, Anger and finally a sense of Victory and Pride. Kunle’s first triumph was in selecting an amazing line up of fresh new young actors and coupling them with some of the most respected veteran in the industry.   His second was working with Uncle Pat Nebo.  This man is a legend.  He was the Art Director on Araromire (The Figurine) as well as on Half of a Yellow Sun to name a few.  If you have a project that needs the best, then you have to hire the best!   The details that went …

New Campaign – #Destination L’Espace – Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle

Hey hey my lovelies! If you don’t know by now then you’d better get to know pretty quickly that L’espace is THE DESTINATION in Lagos.   If you don’t know what we’re talking about well let me break it down to you.. lol.. So.. two lovely hard working young ladies came up with the idea of starting up a monthly pop up shop 5 years ago.  It was called LPM (Le Petite Marche) and it grew from strength to strength.   But they weren’t content with that, they worked really hard and opened up their boutique store “L’Espace”.   It’s a Mecca for fashion, food and beauty lovers.   Not only do they stock a wide variety of Nigerian Designers aka #DestinationFashion – Homewares and the delectable Cam Cam Sweets, but they’ve also now opened a Cafe called Tash Bistro which serves the best salad i’ve eaten in Lagos and delicious healthy food through the day.  There’s also Elles Ice Box serving the most amazing frozen cocktails as well.  We call it #DestinationDecadence –  Now …

Event- My Makeup in Nigeria Conference Adventure

The morning of MINC began for me as an adventure. This was the first ever unique Pro-Makeup artist Conference in Nigeria -250 Years of Combined Experience & Expertise! 11 International Renowned Makeup Experts! 500 Fast Rising makeup artists! 1 Event! I couldn’t wait to experience it! Makeup artistry is certainly a field that has blossomed in Nigeria over the years, and on the 30th of April 2014, over 700 makeup entrepreneurs and beauty influencers were present under one roof at the Oriental Hotel to be part of the Makeup in Nigeria Conference. I got to the venue a little over 9am and I walked into a hall bubbling with activity. It was going to be a good day, and I could feel it already. I snagged myself a ticket and hurried through the attractive exhibition stands and into the hall which was already filled to capacity, wow. Apparently, some people woke up that morning feeling the need to be present at the event and came to make late registrations. (Well done! Lol!) Thankfully, the hall was large enough to accommodate squatters (lol), and what you couldn’t see …

Event: FOREO Launches in Nigeria at the Cosmex Trade Fair

Hello Beauty Lovers! The Cosmex Trade Fair  is on! It’s an international event/exhibition, with countries like the United Kingdom, United States of America, Dubai, Paris, Germany, etc, being represented. And… FOREO, got its first official introduction to Nigeria! The response we got from the attendees have been AMAZING! FOREOS’ stand remained busy, providing attendees with free facial massage treatment, allowing them experience first hand, the deep and gentle cleansing effect of this silicone facial brush. I could see them smile as they relaxed to its pampering effect! As official Partners/Distributors for Nigeria, Sacred made sure those visiting fell in love with the FOREO LUNA™ range and were aware of the opportunities to distribute and stock the brand at their salons & spas or retail outlets. I promise you, you can’t go wrong using LUNA. Check out our review of Luna here. Many international cosmetic brands came into Nigeria for the first time to advertise their products and hopefully, get Nigerian based distributors. If you think this is something you’d be interested in (or you know someone who might be interested in being representatives of these …

Event: The Holistic Beautyprenure Ibadan -Review

Hello Gods & Goddesses! It’s one more day to TGIF! Yay! I hope the week has been productive for you! Yesterday, I got the chance to listen to Lola share her 22 years worth of experience and knowledge with very passionate makeup and beauty lovers, at the Holistic Beautyprenuer Event which took place in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State. Now, something pretty interesting happened on our way there, perhaps you heard about it already, but I’m itching to share it with you, lol! I received quite a number of calls informing me and of a BBM broadcast message which had gone viral. Supposedly, boko haram was attacking on Lagos-Ibadan express road. It was a hoax! In fact, we experienced the most hitch-free road trip to Ibadan and (wait for it…) coming into Lagos! Yes! No traffic coming into Lagos! It was awesome. Thank God *gratitude*! I digress! Back to my post! At the Holistic event, we arrived as Love Olaleye (winner of the Makeup Show Chicago 2013) was teaching and demonstrating on how to achieve …
