I'm willing myself to have energy this morning, but truthfully I'd rather be in bed, sleeping this migraine away. But I'm here at work, willing 4pm to come quickly so I can get my holiday started!
How was your weekend? What'd you do? Who'd you see? What'd you eat? What'd you wear? What'd your drink?
My weekend was FOINE n DANDY! Let me give you a quick breakdown, innit?!
FROIDAY(I spelled it Froiday on purpose, because that's my fake Bri-ish accent, innit?!)
I didn't do much on Froiday. Why? Because erm, I was tired. I think. I can't remember Friday. Moving on.
I woke up early and got some exercise in. Can I just say that while skipping (jump rope) is fun, my feet aren't exactly thrilled. They've been hurting like a broken heart since Friday night (ENH HEH, I finally remember Friday. I was skipping while watching a movie). Anyways, I worked out and got my hair care routine on. Cakes and I were invited to a wedding that morning. The couple were in our Premarital Counseling classes from church, and we were thrilled to see them tie the knot. We think it'd be fun to have a hang out with them, and meet at various date milestones (1 year, 5 years, 10 years, etc).

After the wedding ceremony, I had to ditch Cakes for the natural hair event I mentioned in my last post. Felicia Leatherwood is an American hair stylist, and she's widely known as a natural hair guru. She shared lots of knowledge about natural hair care, did a styling demonstration, and was just awesome. Meanwhile, I have to say this - NIGERIAN NATURALS are becoming a FORCE to reckon with! Gawsh, there were so many women with lovely, healthy hair and lots of creative styles! Oooooooh and I met a reader, Adetoun whose twist out was gorgeous! I wish I wasn't a lazy natural. Ah well. I also met another blogger, Naija Hair Can Grow! I had a lot of fun at the event, but looked forward to my next outing, which was the highlight of my weekend.
*Note* At the hair event, there was champagne... I had just one glass, but let's just say that by the time I rolled up at my next stop, the girls were like "Uh oh, Berry needs food and water IMMEDIATELY."
|Naija Hair Can Grow - it's all hers!|
|Adetoun. LOVE her hurr, makeup, and outfit!!!|
My next stop and most fun part of my weekend was the first of our BLOGGIRLS DAY OUT!!! Stylefash, Bex (who has a new food blog as well) and I over the last 2 weeks, planned to have a meet-up. I'd actually met Stylefash randomly at a supermarket and we screamed excitedly, making mental notes to definitely meet again. Bex talked about her love of Indian food on her food blog, and since Stylefash and I love it too, we decided to meet at Spice Route in VI.
We had such a fun time just gisting about EVERYTHING! I was supposed to meet up with Cakes later that evening, and had told him we'd be done with lunner/dinch at 6pm. How about at 8:30pm, Cakes was still calling me to ask if I was sure I was coming? Yup, we gisted for 4 hours straight! What didn't we talk about?! From our time together, I anticipate a lifelong friendship! Next hang out will be something REALLY girly, or... (it's a secret)
|L-R: Berry, Fash, Bex. LOL, someone said we sound like Power Puff Girls :p|
|This table has different spices! Cool, innit?|
Well, I woke up with a swollen eye (thanks but no thanks to allergies), so I stayed home. The only activity was more family + wedding visits. I honestly can't wait for the wedding to just come and go, so I can rest. Except that after the wedding, the pressure comes to have babies, and then more babies, and even more babies!
I need a vacay :(
