How's your week going?
Mine has been alright so far.
The other day, I was wondering when I stopped doing full events report posts like I did back then ( check out this one and this too) and switched to this weekend bits format. Then it hit me that it was when I got too lazy to walk up and down taking pictures instead of enjoying the event. This laziness of a thing ehn.
Anyways, I thought to find out if you guys actually like this weekend bits format. Please let me know , thank you!
Okay let's get into today's post.In my head I'm saying "Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of weekend bits". Feels funny typing it out though. lol
here. After all my rants on being frugal after the budding wings event, I still ended up spending more than I planned to on cabs this past weekend.
I had to attend the TBP bloggers brunch event though (Rember the dee mako blogger's brunch?) because I was one of the "vip guests" and that's the thought that made me put in extra effort to be there.
The dress code for the event was "floral and that made picking an outfit a bit hard because "hard guy no dey wear floral" lol! Jokes though. My mum added to the stress by ruining the dress I picked out that morning and I had to look for last minute fix ups.
I finally made it to the really lovely venue, although I got there late and missed Noble's speech which I heard was really inspiring. Bummer. The decor was nice, everyone was looking all floraly and beautiful. It was really lovely!
I got to meet with lots of my online blogger boos (Hey Sogie, Beth, Grace etc ) and finally meet the face behind the blogger point - Maryam. Great job!
I didn't sit through the award though because I knew I wasn't winning nothing, so I can't say for sure who won what.
The only thing I didn't like about the event was how limited food was but I guess I can't complain much seeing as I didn't even have to pay an entrance fee. I left the event very hungry though and this fueled the decision to hop into Deola's car and follow them to Ajali's third anniversary party. No Shame!
I must have embarrassed myself because I took a permanent position beside the small chops table. Smh
I also finally got to meet the owner - Ify , who was so nice and soft spoken. She talked us through some of her products and I definitely have my eyes on the konjac sponge and their scrubs.
I really like what the Ajali brand is doing and how much they've grown since they launched. I still remember when sisi yemmie did an introductory post for them and now they are already celebrating three years. Congratulations Ify!

Anyways, my friend made me go for this one but I was a bit dissapointed when I got there to find all the nice things gone. My friend who got there really early to be able to get the good things first told me that it seemed like they had people that prebooked items. I hope its not true though because that would be a shame.
I didn't see much that I wanted, so I bought just a pencil skirt my friend picked out for me from Liz Awoliyi's closet and called it a day.
I know the week is almost over but permit me to still ask - how did your weekend go?
And how is this week treating you?
Were you at the bloggers brunch or any of these other events? How did you find it?
