I know I'm a bit late with this post and I'm sorry about that but hey! better late than never right?
After lots of back and forth between Tuke, Berry and I, our meet and greet event tagged #TBCConnect finally became a reality on the 14th of this month.
I've always loved the idea of putting together events and for the better part of this year, I've had a couple in the works so I was really excited to finally see this one through! ( I blogged about the inspiration behind the event here)
P.S - Slight picture overload !
SIP. SNACK. SHARE
The event was for 2pm and although we had some early guests show up some minutes after the stated time (Shout out to Nedoux, Uju and David!), we still had to make allowance for other guests arriving at Nigerian time and
from then it was a go go!
It was just the perfect intimate setting I had visualized and we had an awesome time getting to know each other, while sipping on wilsons lemonade, complimentary zobo, munching on cupcakes from K's factory and of course some small chops for the soul!
After the initial introductions from everyone, Tuke, Berry and I shared our blogging story and experience so far as well as some other random but inspiring talks on self esteem/confidence and finding your purpose from Berry and her husband Cakes with contributions from everyone.
I was honestly not the most talkative host as I'm more of an introvert but as always, it blows my mind when I get to meet blog readers and I did have a lot of fun chatting with and getting to know all the dope people that showed up!
A LIL EXTRA FUN.
We had Illustrator Precious Adebisi (@stylish_artist) on ground doing live illustrations for those that wanted to leave with a sketch to mark the day and we wrapped up the day with a series of really fun giveaway sponsored by our awesome sponsors ( -
Shay's Treats, Vane Polish, Ajali naturals, Nuella Michaels, Luxe Beauty Lounge,
Gbemisoke Heels from Kaymu, African Naturalistas, and The Kink & I) after which we all went out to have a photo session with our insta- board.
It was the most fun part of the day as we made people indicate what they wanted to win and defend why they should have it. Lol.
Almost everyone left with an item and I was lowkey envying them because who no like better thing?. I think the Eve and Tribe team read my mind though, because they showed up with a surprise package for Tuke, Berry and I. Weneverexperredit!!
A big shout out to some of the bloggers we had in the house, thank you all so much for coming out!

I'm feeling super proud of myself right now, I ticked off "put together catwalk classes for aspiring models (read about the lessons I learnt from that experience here) recently and now I'm ticking off "host a meet and greet event off my 2015 to do list"
I hope you're moving forward and doing some of the things you planned for this year also?
Love and Light,
