So in November 2012 sometime I got a call:
Hi Renée it’s Debbie. I’m planning a wedding for a lady called Ebony and she wants noone but you to make her up. She’s been trying to reach you but I’ve told her you’re my good friend so she shouldn’t worry, she’s such a lovely person… and that’s it, Ebony was booked for the 29th of December!
Sometime last week, I had a consultation with a bride who was running late. I got a little bored waiting so took pictures of little things I like in my office.
I just love pretty things

I love this quote and Chanel is one of my favourite designers. I quickly grabbed this notepad when I saw it…

Following the huge success of the iconic ten chapter movie series ‘Adams Apples’, Sparrow Productions has embarked on another eventful journey with the feisty Adams girls and their equally vivacious counterparts.
We meet the girls, a year later… on the bright note of forgiveness, renewed vows and honey mooning in London. But an unsuspecting kidnapping and a ransom note for ten million cedis throws the family into instant chaos and starts them on what will become the most ferocious chapters of their lives yet…
We caught a few of the many beautiful celebs, couples & friends who attended the premiere on

I am SO in love with Pearls and think there’s no piece of jewellery as classic.
Even though I still adore the classic Audrey Hepburn/Elizabeth Taylor look, I love to be different and so have designed and stock modern & ultra unique pieces.
Every lady must have pearls as they are known to exude wealth, sophistication & class, femininity, elegance and chicness.
… could be a little stud, a brooch, single strand necklace or a head-turning RenéeQ piece…
On Thursday October 18th from 6pm was another evening of blingy fun….
Shopping, Networking, Cocktails & Canapes
at Bubbles & Pearls.
A few pictures from the event.
Watch out for the next one.
Question - “Renée I really need you to make me beautiful on my wedding day. Can you please help me?”
Answer: “I can’t make you beautiful. Your beauty is within.
I can only use make up to enhance this beauty God has promised each and everyone of us”
I love the prayer on www.365promises.com today…
”My prayer is that each and every one of us would know that we are all a one of a kind masterpiece that can never be replaced in the sight of our Father. May faith rise up in our hearts today as we join in the declaration of King David in Psalm 139:14 where he said… I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (NIV)”
You are beautiful.
You are unique.
RenéeQ – Accentuating your inner beauty with an outer glow.
That’s what we do.
PS – Fuschia is one of my favourite colours. I love this picture!
