What I Did This Weekend


How was your weekend? I hope it was pretty! Mine was unpretty, then pretty, then unpretty again, and ended up just there.

I'll only show you the pretty part, of course :D

There was an event - Women Celebrating Women - in Lagos on Saturday night. One of my best girls was one of the performing artists, and she graciously invited a few of us to come. So I wondered and pondered on what to wear. At such events, there are bunches of celebs, businesswomen, leaders, socialites and more. And of course, the RED CARPET.

I was all giddy and wanted to look hawt! I thought about wearing a long evening dress (one of my grandma's) but thought better of it. After all, I wasn't performing. It's not like I'm a celebrity or anything, so what would be the point of a glam gown? So I ended up with a very simple dress, paired it with black sandals and a necklace I made a few years ago.


Oh, and Cakes and I stopped over at a friend's birthday get-together and shot some pool. FYI, Cakes won I ALLOWED Cakes to win both times - no matter what he says. I purposely put in the 8-ball in both games :p

The event started late - what else is new in Nigeria? And there was an hour and a half of speeches!!! Yes, women have accomplished a lot, but I was really hungry and couldn't wait to leave. As soon as my girl sang, Cakes and I were outta there and went looking for SHAWARMA!!!

And that was my pretty day for the weekend.

Have a gorgeous week ahead!
