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 connection in this country is key if you don’t want to suffer.
I tweeted recently that our coping mechanism in this country is top notch. When I went to Ikeja City Mall for this shoot, 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. At Mobos there was little resistance but one of them took my card and asked me to go ahead. I really liked their motto- “Passion, Fashion, Addiction”. They stock really nice items so 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 lost a little weight so the fitting of the dress is a bit off but I love it regardless.
The Wumi dress is originally a tube dress but I have realized that tube dresses do not suit my body type. When I got the dress I was at a loss for what to do. I remembered that the beautiful people of Brief Essentials sent me a gift bag some weeks back and there was a red embellished bra strap included. I attached it to my bra and I got the exact look I wanted. Paired with my embellished red sandals and black clutch, I am 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
