Gidi Girl

Reporting live from Lagos!!

Been back for 3 days now and its been a BLAST. Honestly you'd think I'd been away for 10 years instead of a year judging by my level of excitement at being in Lagos.

I kicked off my wakajugbeness by attending a Christmas party for my old firm ACAS, the day after I got in, forgot my camera so couldn't take any pictures but I had a blast as I always do with my former colleagues. Awesome people.

The next day, Saturday I attended my friend Equi's traditional wedding. It was just like a massive reunion,  we're family friends and have known each other practically since we were born, lived in the same area, attended the same church and when I was little we were all part of this huge clique comprised of the children of our mum's friends. We did everything together. Now we're all old and shit, and everybody's doing their own thing so I haven't seen a lot of them since then but loads were at the wedding, couldn't get pictures of everyone but I had a great time.

Seeing as I got into Lagos barely 2 days before the wedding, I couldn't find a tailor to fix up my aso-ebi so I wore this blindingly pink abaya I got at some random store in Dubai.

I was a bit heavy handed with the smokey eye, especially for daytime but I forgot my Mac shadows and had to make do with some strange teenage brand my 14 year old sister plays around with. Needless to say I won't be trying that again.

I attended it with Mrs. U, her equally formidable sister Mrs. N and my friends Onyeka and Chika who were spending the weekend at mine.

Onyeka, Chika

Equi looked soooo beautiful, this picture didn't even do her justice, the child was a vision.

My boo Gina was there with her baby who I hadn't seen yet, she had on the cutest ankara dress. My baby hunger has been simmering under the surface for a while now but the minute I saw her it flared right back up.

Damn I want a a baby.

My legion of family friends were running riot, it brought back so many memories. All the parties we had, the overlapping crushes everybody had with everyone else, the fights, the setting p in church after Mass (St. Leo's church was the ultimate hook-up joint when I was young).......

*sigh* Nolstagia is a female dog

I thank God my mother was such a social butterfly because her circle gave me friends for life.

Jibby and Isoken

Nnamdi, Chuchu, Uche
