Good morning good people!!!!!  I am sure you had a GREAT weekend!  I did...even attended a wedding yesterday despite being a bit under the weather.  Y'all know how we Lagos people like to par-ty!!! Will share some pictures at the end of the post :-D

Anywayz, I am starting this week on a good note!  Realised I had not posted my last BN Article up here so I decided to do this first thing this morning before my day gets all hectic on me!  But seeing I like to kill 2 birds with one stone, we have some great Courses coming up soon:

-  The Pattern-Making & Grading with Computer-Aided Design;
-  Design & Fashion Illustration with Computer-Aided Design;
-  Basic Fashion Course for Juniors (ages 9-16); and
-  Short Course in Childrenswear.

Details about these courses will come up soon.

Great!  And now for the article...

How Do I Start My Fashion Business?

Hello good people!!!!!  I'm sure you all had a GREAT holiday!  I know I did!  I am already looking forward to the next one... (who knows when the next one is coming up?!)  Anywayz!  I had a pretty restful one - totally thankful!  And it's back to the hustle and bustle again!  

Haha.... I thought this was hilarious!  I just could not resist!

Ok!  So here is my BN post!  I have actually had this question thrown at me so many times, I knew writing about it was only a matter of time.  Seeing I managed not to lift a finger over the holiday, here is the article which was actually posted on Bella Naija on Thursday.  I made minimal changes to it since I realised it was edited and some portions of my thought process (re: punctuations and brackets) were lost in the editing AND I also added more pictures...

The "Prince of Peace" - The Real Significance of Easter...

"Prince of Peace", The Image of Jesus as painted by Akiane Kramarik;

Ever since I saw this image of Jesus in the movie, Heaven Is For Real, I have been extremely drawn to it.  I remember my sister telling me about a documentary she watched where the producers were trying to recreate his image based on some assertions and that conversation came back to me when I saw this picture.

Wishing ALL LADIES a Happy Mothers Day!

This picture says it all!  And that is why my wishes go to not just mothers but every single lady out there who is a mother or potential mother, regardless of age.

You also need to be celebrated because you do contribute and play a role in people's lives- the same way a mother would.

Have an EXCELLENT Mother's Day!
