So!!! My Work Got Mentioned In The April Edition of UK Vogue!!!!!!!


Imagine a grown woman standing in the middle of a room, screaming and laughing and turning round and round till she gets incredibly dizzy - then she sits, looks around in wonderment and once the dizzy wave wears off, she repeats the same process. Well that grown ass woman was me!!!!! And what I hear you ask, was responsible for this unbecoming behaviour?

Welllllll! I had just discovered that I had been given credit in the April edition of UK Vogue for the styling work I did for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

It's so incredibly amazing because I never even thought they'd do credits!!! Stella of Stella's addiction had called me to say she'd recommended me to Chimamanda to get her hair done for an interview she was doing for Vogue and would I be available?!! As if I wouldn't be! lol!!!!  I got the call, arrangements were made, and she came down to the salon  (she's an incredibly sweet and fun, person by the way) so we could do a treatment and discuss possible hair styles.

On the day of the interview, I got to hers after I'd tossed and turned almost all night trying to figure out in my head what we were going to do, how she would like it, and the million ways I could mess up this opportunity.

I finally got myself together and got to hers, and we commenced styling. She's a woman who definitely knows what she doesn't want and what exactly she wants but thankfully we were able to agree on the final look.   She's also an incredibly private individual so we had to respect that and not go all crazy taking selfies to post on instagram and all of social media (because you know you'd have seen a trillion pictures of me with her by now lol)



Anyway, as I said, I didn't think they'd do credits as I didn't get the call from Vogue but from Chimamanda so imagine my ecstatic surprise when I got sent the picture of the page from Vogue with my name written!!!!!


I was and am still soooo incredibly chuffed!!!! I mean, Me?? God has been so awesome and I am incredibly thankful for this which I pray and believe is the beginning of greater things to come.

So go out and grab  your copy!!!!!!

Till my next post
