Have I said thank you to you guys lately? Thank you so much for all the love on my birthday and the support in my last post. I appreciate you!
P.S - Picture overload in this post.
I got back to Lagos last weekend and I was really not ready to face real life after the great weekend I had at the Dunes center in Abuja. Why do all good things have to come to an end? *sigh*
Here's a break down of all we got up to during the three days we spent exploring the dunes center and my highlights.
We arrived in Abuja in the afternoon, got loaded up into the bus and headed to the Dunes Center. That journey was my first glimpse of Abuja and I was really amazed at how free the roads were! We got to the Dunes centre in record time and I was so happy to see that it met and exceeded all my expectations! I mean, I had high expectations already but somehow they managed to exceed it. The building itself was quite massive (I got lost a few times lol) and the apartments were real ly impressive.
I wore an Ejiro Amost Tafiri skirt with a lace crop top for the ball and it was such a fun night watching everyone let loose was particularly interesting. Lol. Trust someone over here didn't exactly let loose. Haha
I also got surprised! I remember saying I wouldn't mind being surprised for my birthday in this post even if I didn't think it would ever happen. I was so sure that it was never going to happen and even kept disagreeing with people in my comments that it would never happen. Little did I know that the crew had a surprise planned for me. I was so shocked when the song suddenly changed to a birthday song, a cake appeared and everyone started singing along! Best birthday yet!
Day two was the D - Day. The actual day of the fashion show and launch of the nigerian floor (stocking Nigerian fashion brands) which was the main thing we went there to witness. But before the actual event, we were taken on a tour of their luxury floor. I wish I had taken more pictures from that tour because I need to share all the beautiful shoes and bags! It was just so much beauty in one place.
Day two was my day to switch back to my comfort zone and I wore a polka dot crop top and black highwaisted pants. Full style post coming soon!
The show was one of the most organized and creative one I've been too in a long while. The set up and sitting arrangements were done in a different and out of the box way to help us engage more with the crafts and products on display.
On day three, we had a treasure hunt and said our goodbyes to the dunes center and Abuja. The treasure hunt was fun but I was sad because I didn't win anything lool! Even with all the expo I got with the riddle on twitter. *sigh*Akin won a Roberto Cavalli gold wallpaper that I was seriously lusting over!
Christmas definitely came early for me this year. It was a memorable experience as I got to make good connections and I also had a wonderful time while at it.
Another thing I've been going on about is how I want to visit Abuja and I'm glad I can tick that off my bucket list finally. Although, I didn't do much exploring so I have plans to visit again.
