Wedding Tales


One of my high school bffs got married a while back and I was the maid of honor. The planning process was an interesting one because the bride had no idea what color she wanted neither did she care for a wedding theme.No doubt she wanted a beautiful wedding, but she was more focused on having an organized and seamless event.I finally chose her wedding colors (yellow and gold)and she pretty much let the bridesmaids choose their own outfits.

I had originally ordered a yellow chiffon dress to match the bridesmaids' but when my dress came in, it was 3 sizes big and my tailor thought it'd be easier to sew a new dress than alter the over sized dress.Luckily, I got 75% of my money back from the original retailer and my tailor worked her magic and produced the gold dress I wore in 5 days. The dress was a bit tight but we were in crunch time and I couldn't have it taken out. 

The prep for the wedding was fun except that the night before the big day, the horrors of all horrors happened...I burnt the bride's veil!!!I was ironing it and right before my eyes, the stupid iron (yes, it was the iron's fault) scorched and took a big chunk of the veil. I think I died, went to heaven and came back to earth when I saw the large scorch hole holes made by the iron.The burns were huge and were positioned right in front of the veil.The bride found it hilarious and laughed till tears rolled down her eyes.I on the other hand, was freaking out and partially hyperventilating. She was a good sport and we somehow found a way to patch the veil.We also had to make sure that her bouquet was constantly covering the patch during the ceremony. It was such a relief when the groom finally unveiled her. 
And oh, I did the bride's make up.After burning her veil, she was definitely brave to trust me with her face.

Here are some of the pictures...enjoy!


 






I also caught the bouquet.I think I am going to give this catching bouquet thing a break.This is my 3rd bouquet!!*hides face in shame*

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?


Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
