One word – Stunning. Creative Director of one of Africa’s leading design labels Tiffany Amber, Folake Folarin-Coker is picture perfect for TW Magazine‘s April 2014 Issue.

      I wondered too! And you people talking as if marriage isnt a big deal, surely it is! If you are referred to as a mother we naturally assume you are a wife until otherwise stated. Again, marriage is a BIG DEAL! It is God’s idea, the only institution He uses to paint our relationship with His son (Christ and His bride), so yes it is a big deal. While not everyone will get married, it is a beautiful thing to do if you get the chance with the right person! May I end this by saying you will never get something you don’t place any value on. Go figure!

      Ps. Don’t waste your time insulting me I won’t come back here to read it LOOL
