Late Lunch and Champagne Brunch

I was cordially invited to a champagne brunch hosted by The Wedding Guru, an events planner in Abuja. Not knowing what to the expect of the event, I was looking forward to it especially because on the stylish invitation cards sealed in a canary yellow envelope with gold embossed writing. Shame I didn't take a photo of it. But here's what the invite looked like:

It was on a Friday during work hours so I chose to have a late lunch, of course. I had to put my best fashionable foot forward and still be work compliant given the dress code restrictions at my work place.
Blouse - Next
Skirt - Mango
Shoes and Necklace - Zara
Bag - Cromia

Random: Fitness

I figure a public declaration of my need to get fit or cry trying will serve as the additional motivation I need to stay on track. I am what you call a 'weight loss' junkie, trying everything and sticking to nothing. I'm not sure what, how and when I will get to my goal size (a perfect 10!) but I know these things:
  • I enjoy running but get lazy
  • I am competitive
  • I love sugar/junk food, all that labelled bad but tastes so damn good
  • I am willing to try
  • I start off great and lose steam along to way
  • I am currently on a Dukan diet. A friend agreed to do this with me, so hey!
  • I have been on a juice fast, done the master cleanse, stayed of sugar for a month and still..... the flabs persist.
  • I love sugar... (I bet I already mentioned this)
  • I am still willing to try

Brown and Glowing for the Kids

My friend and I attended a charity event celebrating Children's day (May 27th) with some orphanages in Abuja.
It was all smiles and laughter with the kids and this cute doggie I met (Coco), even when the rain came pouring down. I now know two cute doggie fur balls named Coco! Taiwo took some amazing photos and I thought I should show them off! She failed to send any photos of herself, for reasons best known to her *shrug*

Brighter Than The Sun

Hello there! I know it has been forever but I'm sure y'all been doing fabulously well in my absence. Here's what I've been up to in the past month and a half, in pictures. I will try to make my blogging as regular as possible. I already have a post ready for next week!

Mina Stones: My dear friend Lotanna Amina Egwuatu, takes her jewellery designing very seriously and yes business is booming for her and her label, Mina Stones! And guess who's the face of the brand.... *drum roll*.... ME!!! Well, if wishes were horses, I'd be riding gallantly but I'm sure Lotanna can take a hint. From a lazy shoot on a hot Abuja afternoon, I give you Mina Stones:
