Monday, October 13, 2014

Hey lovelies!!!
So I know that it seemed like I bailed but I promise I didn't, just had a busy few weeks and a whole lot going on. This would be my first real post since the last post was me basically declaring my decision to join the artful life of blogging *insert evil smile here* so this should be interesting.

I'm currently doing my 1 year NYSC program in Lagos (can't wait for it to end though) and so far things are looking up.I'm hoping for a situation where I get back from work each day and I'm super excited to write for you guys anything and everything. I'm not sure it's always gonna be a love song but I promise it will be close ;) so pleassssssse- stick with me guys and be patient with me too.I'm not a pro at this,I learn each day so I'm not always going to be a 100 percent.

That said, last week was eventful, what with all the festivities of the week but most importantly because of the Beauty Africa Exhibition and Conference that took place at
the Eko Hotel International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Lagos on the 7th-9th. It was a three-day event dedicated to beauty and wellness that recorded a tremendous turnout from young talents all around Lagos.

The event was a huge success with lots of exhibitors showcasing their products at their respective stands as well as live demonstrations  being done on models during the event.It was fun and totally awesome with attendees leaving the event well-informed and with renewed confidence in their art.

I met some amazing individuals and was happy i didnt miss it considering i had initially changed my mind at the last minute not to attend. I took some pictures but not as many as I would have loved so I'm gonna stop talking now and leave you to it *hugs*
