GIVEAWAY WINNERS||HAPPY VALENTINE!!!

It’s funny how time flies! Like, I remember having my big chop at O’naturals this day last year, when all my mates were having lunch and dinner dates with their various boos, lol… I also put a post here a day before, for the single ladies. This year I’ll be spending the whole day in school not because BB is hours away, but because my bffs specifically warned me to face my studies and not follow man! 😦 #yimu

Anyhoo, Happy Valentine’s Day darlings! And congratulations to the winners!

1 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY/GIVEAWAY!!!

Heyyyyyyy! Happy new yearrrrr! 😀 I’m sure you can tell I am excitedddd! Okay i’ll stop now, lol! It’s a new year and I have so much to be thankful for. December 2015, I took up photography as a hobby/getaway from joblessness, and January last year, I started my photography blog. I must say, it’s been an amazing journey! I’ve done a lot of event shoots since then, met a lot of people and been to places!  And of course made money from doing what I love!

Also, the past couple of months have been filled with a mixture of anxiety, hope and fear. What a combination right? I mean, it was my birthday 2 months ago and I almost didn’t feel the need to celebrate, like I couldn’t be bothered because I had so much on my mind. Well, I would go into details but then that’s not why we’re here 😛 But I thank God for showing up for me! My instagram post here pretty much sums up my 2017!

Yes! We pulled another one off! This time, it’s a surprise birthday party. I think I should delve into part time event management, surprise parties to be precise because I’m becoming a pro!

I honestly don’t know where to start, lol… This was the same thing I told BB (Code name for Baby Boy :p) last night and he said “just do the usual, a story, i’m sure you’ll warm up”. That didn’t help at all because I still didn’t know how to start the story, but it was well appreciated 😀 (just in case he reads this)

Mabel, Mabel, Mabel…

SURPRISE!!! KEWE’S BRIDAL SHOWER

When Tonia called to tell me she had a paid job for me, I was so excited. Not just because I hadn’t gotten a paid photography job in weeks, but because it was another opportunity to capture beautiful moments and make memories. Tonia is one of my favourite flight attendant colleagues by the way. Yeah I used to be a flight attendant, and I blogged about it here.

Okay back to the matter (open and close 😛 ), her friend Kewe is getting married and she and her other friends planned a surprise bridal shower for her.

First, we were neighbours. She’ll scream my name from her balcony “Grace Ogunleye Grace!” and before i knew it, we were roommates. Only Tomi can move into your room and send you away from your bed!

SURPRISE!!! Tobi’s Bridal Shower

So, this is the third successful bridal shower I’ve been a part of in the last 2 years. I blogged about the second here

Last weekend, myself and some other friends gave our dear friend and coursemate Tobi Adekunle her second surprise bridal shower. The first was planned by her chidhood friends in Ibadan, where she grew up.

The intial plan was for us all to attend the one in Ibadan, but since the wedding will be in Ibadan too, we thought it would be too stressful for the Lagos based friends to travel twice in two weeks, so we decided to throw her another one.

CAG Bloggers Forum

Alice, (founder of Colours and Grey) is one of the first bloggers I met after I started blogging earlier this year, and from our first conversation, I knew I made the best decision attending 3 Bloggers I Night (which I blogged about here). I went with my friend Tomi, who happens to be a mutual friend, so she introduced us.

She has this passion and drive for what she does and it challenges me a lot. I was so happy to finally know someone in the blogosphere. She would always encourage me to attend events, meet people and make friends. The Digital Marketing training I attended was recommended by her and it helped me a lot.

I could go on and on, but let’s skip to the part where I attended her first bloggers forum.
