It was just kinda... I dunno... You get me? I think it was like that because of all the rain. I had a couple of things on my To-Do radar on Saturday, but the rain! Mehn, it poured! I was actually thisclose to simply canceling my plans and just staying home to cuddle with Cakes, but I had a wig to deliver! So I got dressed in my new ankara tunic/mini dress thingy - Cakes' friend bought the material for me after I GRACIOUSLY agreed to follow him to Daviva to buy fabric for his girlfriend and her mother. I'm like "Nna, I hope you know I'm not leaving here empty-handed." So he got me 2 yards of fabric - just like N1,100 or so. Mehn, I'm about to go and spend N5000 buying different 2-yds so I can make cute little outfits.
Anyway, I headed out and the first stop was Naturals In The City, put together by Natural Nigerian and The Kink and I. It was held at The Social Place (which seems like the go-to event space on the island). I got there just in time for some of the talks. There were speakers on hair (obviously), fitness/nutrition, and a sex discussion. Sawry, I'm sworn to secrecy so I shall not be divulging information from the final speaker. She sha runs MyIntimatePleasureShop.com. That's all I'm saying.
There were quite a number of guests, and with pretty hair too!
|Check out Nicole's curls!!! She's my youngest sister's friend :)|
And of course, the vendors. Yay, I got a henna tattoo from The Henna Place! I really like henna tattoos. I got this one on my leg just to be different, and to surprise somebody but all he said was, "Oh okay." *rolls eyes*
I must say this. I'm very happy that there are lots of Nigerian-owned-and-based beauty companies. You can find everything from hair care to skin care to makeup to whatever! Check out the Irresistible Woman soap in the bottom middle picture. I wish I could try everything all at once, but I'm not a product junkie and I like to finish products before buying new ones.
I was supposed to check out the board games at Stranger Lagos, organized by Living in Lekki blog, but I got there after it was over and just went on home. On Sunday before church, there was a cake delivery...
|See these two crazies and me. Of course I'm the only sane one :)|
|Erm, I know it's a weird photo. Omoye's in the play and was rushing off, but I had food in my mouth and wanted a photo by force!!!|
|Meanwhile, Kemi Lewis styled her hair over a week ago.|
|Girls gisting about the woes of being a single girl in Lagos|
|Omoye getting ready for the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge run where singles go to scope other singles :p|
|OMG, this scene was hilarious - PROPOSAL GONE WRONG!!!! Check out a clip below.|
Bez was in the audience, as his sister is the producer of the play. She made him serenade us a lil bit :)
|And I ran into Tuke as well :)|
By the time we got home yesterday, I was just really tired and wanted to relax and put my stuff for work together. One of these days, I'll put up a post on my typical work outfits for the week. *Erm, if you blog and think this is a good idea that you want to do and you put up your post before me, give me a mention o!!!*
This week, I want to get back to my fitness routine properly. My face is looking full again, and I've been eating very crappily. Wish me luck! I pray for a very pretty week for you and yours. God bless!
