Long time ey?
If I stopped blogging today, everyone would move on and so it didn't make sense for me to keep compromising my mental health for it.
But that's by the way now!
So, I'm back with a weekend bits post. It has been forever since I had a weekend bits post up here and I blame it on med life and having a job that isn't just 9 - 5, but on most days 8am - 8am and also includes working weekends.
Fortunately for me, I've been riding on a streak of luck lately ( let's just say my work call roaster finally became fair) and I've had a few weekends free to baby girl around and events hop like before. Lol
The Andrea Iyamah event was last weekend but I decided to merge it with this weekend's bits.
The event was held at Temple Muse, one place that I've been meaning to visit just so I can take a picture with their plain white walls and I finally achieved that. Haha.
I went with my friend Banke and although we got there almost two hours late, the event still hadn't started and didn't start till almost 1hr 30 minutes after we got there.
Nigerians and never keeping to time right?
She showcased her SS17 swimwear collection and let me just say that when I finally decide to start wearing swim suits, I'm definitely making my first one an Andrea Iyamah piece.
This weekend however, I didn't plan to do much but ended up doing just that. Lol.I planned to re-rock one pants for the weekend so I left home on saturday with just an overnight bag packed with an extra shirt for church. I didn't leave home with my camera too because I didn't think I would need it, hence the not so stellar quality pictures.
On saturday, I attended a one year old birthday party of a family friend (which was actually my main itinerary for the weekend) and afterwards went to see the Movie "Dr Strange'.I think it is a must see and I'll recommend it to anyone. I didn't get bored for one second! My friend had reservations because of the "occultic/wizadry" theme to it but its not like I plan to start studying the dark world lol.
The workshop was put together by the blogger point - I blogged about their first event here.
I honestly didn't learn much as regards the makeup aspect and I'm beginning to feel like I'm just ineducable when it comes to makeup. *sigh* or maybe I just need a real practical session where I'm also practising at the same time as being taught.
It was a nice workshop though and I got to realize the amount of editing that goes into some of the instagram pictures we see. I was amazed! Lol. There are apps for just about everything - to increase and even reduce your forehead. Ah mehn.
Meeting Ronke was great too!
She is so down to earth and has such an amazing personality that made the workshop even more fun.
I'm glad I went though because I had a wonderful time there and was super super impressed by the whole event.
It was way more than just a fashion show, it was like a mini fashion festival. GTBank definitely did not come out to play at all! Everything was so perfect and there was no nigerian time at all (compared to LFDW), All the shows started and ended on time.
One notable thing though, was that the usual fashion crowd and segregation wasn't the same here and that was refreshing to see.
The event was also a free one and because of that, it was quite packed! I couldn't make it into the runway show proper because it was filled up *sigh*
The whole fashion week lately has been making me miss being a model and just maybe, next year I'll switch back to doing that again part time.
