SATURDAYS: For Rest? Or Lagos Owaambes?

So guys, after screaming TGIF because Yaaaay its Friday (Friyay! πŸ˜€ ), After you’ve worked and worked from Monday and you just can’t wait for the weekend, after enduring all the crazy traffic on your way to work (and let’s not forget that even work itself can be oh so stressful)… At last… The weekend has come… Yesss! Finally… I can just lay in bed all Saturday and just…

…wait…

hold up…

I’m getting a text…

Omg that’s today!!!??? 😯

Not again πŸ™ …. Ohhh well …. Time to slay 😈

… Always always always, there is one Owambe or the other to attend. So you get up (again >.<), get dressed in your Aso-Ebi (or at least the colours of the day – My new personal favorite is Champagne Gold), apply your makeup or quickly dash into a beauty parlour for some professional makeup and Gele finishes (because yes, we must slay more than the bride herself πŸ˜† )… Aiit! All set? Time to step out! Oh yeah!

We know the drill… Taking pictures of the couple? Who has time for that when we can be taking picture ofΒ ourselves πŸ˜‰ , y’know now?… for instagram, facebook, twitter, gbogbo eh… and we ain’t taking it easy on the hashtags either (#melaninslaying, #hairandmakeuponpoint, #everythingsplufik, #hiseyesarenotworthy πŸ˜† ) … After all… That’s why we are here 😎

And can we talk about the souvenirs? Detergent, serving spoons, ladles, mugs, blenders, frying pans… in short… All the kitchen appliances, niiice! Its a good thing that we women empower each other this way sha, y’know? It’s great… Next time a friend is moving house, I’ll just tell her, “Ah, Funke don’t worry now, Kemi‘s wedding is coming up soon; You can get your blender there ” hehehe πŸ˜† .

So yeah, who needs rest on saturdays when you can dress up, make up, eat party rice or amala (let’s not forget that oh… Item seven… veeerry important πŸ˜† ), take lots of selfies and take gifts home even if you didn’t spray the couple or get them any gifts (shame! shame! shame! 😑 πŸ˜‰ )…

But seriously though, let’s try and revive that culture y’know? Getting gifts for the couple and just letting the day be about them… Would make a nice new year resolution for 2017 don’t you think? And hey, if you’re looking for the best place to get that perfect piece to slay effortlessly, just check out the shop. You’ll love it. Seasons greetings babes. Till next time… keep Queening…
