Let's all just thank God that I'm actually putting this post up today. Yes, it's late but at least it's still Monday. If I tell you how tired I am enh! As in, I've been dizzy for the past how many hours but managing it. I just want to put up this post and crash. I wish I could take a day off work - I really need to sleep.
I had the busiest weekend ever!!! Friday, Saturday, Sunday - full of activities. I think I slept at 2am or so on both Friday and Saturday nights. And no, I wasn't clubbing. I just got home really late - past midnight - and it took me a little bit to finally fall asleep. Anyway, let's get started on the weekend gist, aye? It's long o. Just balance well in your chair or bed or wherever.
On Friday, after work, I went to Lagos Fashion and Design Week at Federal Palace. I met up with one of my Power Puff Girls for Day 3 of LFDW. I really wanted to go because I'd never been and I thought it would be a fun experience. Before I got there though, my car got into a minor accident - Booooooo!!! After talking to the other party and deciding it was definitely her fault, I headed off again. It was a really fun experience - I even got to shoot some "Street Style" of my own.
|Veronica Odeka had a Style Clinic. Remember when I went to her very first one?|
Unfortunately, the event started late. It was supposed to start at 5:30pm but apparently 7:30pm was the earliest it started on most days. That isn't great because the shows take about 3.5 hours. Fash and I kept looking at the time because we were both tired and yawning. We made it to the end though - and I have to say, we really enjoyed it. Some of the collections were awesome and others were bleh. But I have to commend fashion designers - it's not easy at all.
On Saturday, I went to my friend's house where I chilled and spent the rest of the weekend. I even filmed a hair tutorial with my Nazuri Curls (btw - the 10% off discount ends on the 18th of this month!!!). I can do this hairstyle without looking in the mirror.
The paint party was fun. I drank a glass of champagne a little too fast and got a bit tipsy *hides face.* If you follow me on Snapchat, then you saw all the craziness that went down - we were singing, dancing, and just being loud women :p I love girl time!
See the painting we were supposed to recreate...
And here's my recreation
On Sunday, I went to The Waterbrook Church (where Cakes and I met). They've finally moved to their own place, and I just had to be there to celebrate with them.
Afterwards, I went to the Ajali Shop and Spa Launch party. It's such a pretty little space and I had a nice time. Ifeyinwa who owns Ajali, and is a partner at Nazuri Curls, is also a blogger at Love Ifeyinwa and works at TW Magazine - talk about mogul! Her Ajali products are great skincare products, and I'm glad that Nigerians are doing big things in the beauty industry.
|Yasmin (R) and Ifeyinwa (L) are behind the Nazuri Curls brand. And they're both wearing Nazuri Curls.|
Ifeyinwa/Ajali won an award last year.
They have this pretty nifty sales thingy. As soon as I paid, I got a receipt in my email!

I finally met Tosin, who blogs at Africanism Cosmopolitan. She blogged about the event here.
There was a lot of food and drinks - which I didn't have. But I certainly took advantage of the free massage, which was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You may now refer to me as Berry the Blogger and Cake Designer :)
Oh, and add Fire Fighter too, because I went for Fire Warden Training last week.
Going to sleep now. Have a lovely weekend!
