I cannot believe it!
My baby has turned 3!
I so often refer to my blog as my ‘baby’, as like a baby it requires nurturing, feeding, attention and a love for it to grow..
..and like a baby, my blog is maturing and developing a character of its own! It is so much fun being the author of this evolution!
An excerpt of my very first post states my intent for BPL and this is still the essence of its existence.
Black. British. Beautiful. Proud.
Once again, I want to thank all of my subbies and followers on Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram!
I want to also thank the many bloggers and publications that have featured my blog or have given me the opportunity to speak/write. You have been instrumental to my success.
I am truly grateful and humbled by your continued support!
Reaching this milestone after recently celebrating Keziah CONNECTIONS’ 2nd Anniversary is just awesome and I hope that you are encouraged to take a step of faith, leverage your strengths and move towards the goals and dreams that you have! If I can do it, you can too!
The anniversary celebration was an amazing evening, the love and synergy in the room was palpable and the feedback has been phenomenal!
@KeziahCONNECTS was EPIC last night. Amazing turn out and great vibe. Met so many new and old faces. #progress #sisterhood #support

I would once again like to thank Fashion Fair UK, Spell Magazine and Sensationnel UK for their support! The event was a true testament to what can be achieved through collaboration and relationship!
A massive shout out must be given to Chika Umenyiora of Style Me Up Network, who kitted me out in the most spectacular silk iro and buba!
If you were unable to make the event, Folakemi (editor of Naijalivinguk.com) has written a superb summary here!
So what does the future hold?
Well, the Bible states in Proverbs 16:9 that…
… so as I look ahead to the latter end of the year and onto 2015, I plan to see BPL and Keziah CONNECTIONS continue to grow and be a positive influence by the grace and with the help of God.
Look out for extensions to the BPL offering such as branding masterclasses and exciting developments with the Keziah CONNECTIONS offering, bringing you closer to the power brokers in the Beauty industry!
Once again, thank you so much for your support from the bottom of my heart.
Love and light,
