Dancing Twirlzonto!!!




Sawry, it's been a million and one years since I posted. At least, it seems like that in my world. I miss you oh-so-very much! Well let's catch up, shall we?

Erm, last week I worked late every single day of the week! Hmm, I bet you're going, "O....k... is that the gist?"

Let's try again.

I went to the Naturals in the City meetup in Lagos, the other week! Me and my hurrs made were captured in the photos (see below), and I was one of the many who were interviewed by a TV program. I'd like to see the footage, but at the same time, I cringe whenever I see myself onscreen, so what's the point? :-|

Mmm, what else? AH, the reason why I'm twirlzontoing (I really should make a video and post it, shouldn't I?). Wait for it, wait for it...

I WAS SELECTED as one of 10 lucky brides for BRIDES DAY OUT by The Wedding Guru Nigeria!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY ME!!! Imagine this. They'd posted on Bella Naija about the event in May/June, and I liked their Facebook page and silently began stalking them. One week passed, 2, then three, and at a point, I completely forgot all about it. They announced the Abuja winners eventually, and said to keep an eye out for Lagos winners. Well, let's just say another few weeks later, the thought popped into my head, "Wait o! Did they announce Lagos winners yet?" I went to their page again, and NOTHING (apart from the Abuja winning brides, having fun on their day out).

And then this past Monday comes around. I wasn't feeling well, and went straight to bed when I got home (6pm). At 12:38am, I stir in my bed and decide to go on Facebook. What do I see? "Announcing our Lagos winners..." The stalking restarts. For the next hour, I refresh and fresh my window, hoping to see my name. I got tired after seeing that they stopped at the 7th winner and would announce the remaining 3 on Tuesday. On Tuesday morning, I get to work, and continue stalking their Facebook page, wishing and hoping and thinking and praying for my name to be announced as a winner. In the afternoon, Cakes calls and says "Berry, some lady just called me now, saying that you won something and they've been trying to call you and emailed you on Monday. Here's her number."

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! Am I a dummy or what? I hadn't checked my email since the previous week. I'd seen the missed calls, but have become like Nigerians that don't call unknown numbers back. So for 24 hours, while I'd been stalking The Wedding Guru, they'd been looking for moi!

Anyways, I spoke to them, sent in my picture and they finally announced me as a winner! We get to go around to different vendors, sipping champagne, riding pretty in a limo, and it might even be televised! *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeals!*

I have butterflies in my tummy now, because I can't go there looking raggedy. Nehls, eyebronx and hurrs need to be did! Hopefully I'm allowed to take pics and share afterwards.

Dance with me! *twirl  zonto, twirl zonto, twirl zonto, now join me and twirl zonto, twirl zonto....*
