The Latest

.

It's a new week, new expectations, new challenges and blessings. I wanted to put this post up yesterday, but I broke down and had to rest the whole of yesterday. I didn't sleep the whole weekend because we spent the whole time there at my family's house. For some reason they don't sleep in that house lol, I call my brother a  "Vampire" cos he was mostly up all night during the weekend. This was the look I went for  to the launch event of Style Me Africa, if you missed the post, check it out Here. I wore this hat to compliment the Kimono and most of all, I was having a bad hair day, I need to cover up some loose ends. 
I hope you all are having a good week so far, just keep you head up because there are 5 more days remaining this week and anything can happen. Enjoy!!

Happy Sallah!! to my Muslim readers, I hope you all are enjoying the holiday. I have had so much ram meat and lounging to the point that I'm a little confused and feel so weak. I't not going to bore you with so much talk, but all I would say is take advantage of the holiday and rest and lounge as much as you can.


The hubby and I were with a couple of friends yesterday, eating away, laughing and enjoying ourselves. I didn't take any picture of myself because I was the one with the camera and I wasn't looking my best after such a long day. So I'm using today to rest and to recover from yesterday.  


Anyone working today or going out to have fun, if so what are your plans?

Florals can never go out of style, I loved the fact that it was the dress code for the Garden Party I went for, Click here. I also love this skirt so much because it makes me feel like a princess "blush!!"  and for the fact that it's my favorite color Pink.  This look is just perfect for an outdoor events as long as it's not a Native Wedding, Enjoy!!

I would like to say Happy Independence Day Nigeria!! we are 54 Years old today and I pray for protection and Guidance in this Country. In other news, I was invited to a Garden Party that took place last Sunday, I was Sisiyemmie's plus 1. It was pretty cool she brought me along :). The dress code of the day was floral and I must say each lady that was present looked so beautiful. The event took place at the Social Place in Victoria Island at 3pm, but I got there at to 5 because I had to eat launch (I never attend events hungry, so that I can fully focus on the reason why I attend an event), also it's pretty tough for me to head out Sundays, its like my day of serious rest after church, is there anyone like that here? 



The people present at the party where bloggers sharing their experiences and a few readers who wanted to get to know a few things about blogging. Each person had their name on a plate and a flower hair accessory.


Almost all the ladies had natural hair, I kinda felt a little bad that I relaxed my hair a few months ago, but when I remembered my struggles, I just said "Whatever"!!






This rainy season is kinda getting a little annoying, I was not happy when it started to drizzle, we had to leave the beautiful setting to go indoors to avoid getting wet. I had to take a little shot from a distance before I went in. (They had already removed a couple of the decorations boo hoo :(  )


The fun still continued inside so it was pretty cool, but there is a confession I have to make. I really have a shy problem its actually annoying and sickening. I can only really talk loud and express myself If I am put on the spot, or I was told that I was going to say a speech or I have a couple of friends around me. I had a lot I wanted to say, but at the end of the day I only talked about a camera "WHO DOES THAT!!!" I really need to over come it, I can't continue this way. I admired the other bloggers who spoke freely. 




There were also pretty cupcakes made by Berry's husband, it's unfortunate I couldn't get a piece due to taking a group picture.


I really loved Barbara1923's dress (on the right), I kept telling her through out the event, it was so cute and pretty. Both ladies looked lovely. 


I and Sisiyemmie 


Locitude and Thosenaturalafricancurls looked lovely in their floral dress


Any plans for today? please to share, Happy Holiday!!

XOXO
