Merry Christmas lovely people! I hope you’re having a great one despite the fuel scarcity situation in Nigeria. This is the time to be chummy with fuel station managers because connections in this country are key if you don’t want to suffer.
I tweeted recently that our coping mechanism in this country is top notch because I went to Ikeja City Mall for this shoot and the parking lot was filled up! I mean, where did they all get fuel? LOL. May God deliver us.
This is the second time I’m shooting at ICM and there was no disturbance although it took a while before I could get a store to use as a background, everyone wanted to charge for space even after I proposed a collaboration with free adverts on the blog. Nigerians still don’t know how to take advantage of Influencer marketing. The team at Mobos were divided but one of them took my card and just told me to add a picture with the name of the store. I really liked their motto- “Passion, Fashion, Addiction”. They also have really nice items so please check them out if you’re at the mall.
My baby girl Lade (who is now a mummy by the way) sent me this “Wumi” dress that we designed together some weeks back. I think I lost weight, (weight that I cannot even afford to lose if I don’t want to disappear) so the fitting of the dress is a bit off but I love it regardless.
This dress is originally a tube dress but due to past experiences, I realized that tube dresses do not suit my body type so when I got the dress I was at a loss as to what to do. Luckily for me, the beautiful people of Brief Essentials sent me a gift bag some weeks back and there was a red embellished bra strap amongst it. I attached it to my bra and voila! I got exactly what I wanted. Paired with my embellished red sandals and black clutch, I’m Christmas ready!
On the real though, I’m currently sitting home, eating pounded yam and vegetable soup and chilling with my family this Christmas Day.
How’s your day going? Sending lots of love to you and yours, Have a blessed celebration.
LoveandKisses from TANG
