SISI & BOBO : OUR WEDDING PHOTOS FROM PHOTOGENIC PHOTOTBOOTH !

As part of the package Bobo and I got at our wedding from WED Expo, Photogenic Photobooth came through and we had a lovely experience. We got the “Magical” Package, which came with unlimited photos souvenirs, iPad Social Media sharing stations and a customized guestbook album to enjoy later…the album is somewhere in our bedroom –fun memoir. Chei! I just remembered I have not uploaded our white wedding photos…oya next week…stay tuned…don’t touch that dial! 

Aside from all the extra perks like the Red Carpet Experience and PhotoGenic Fairies that came with the package, the amount of rave reviews and kudos that we received from friends and family made it priceless. Getting a photo booth was one of the fun parts of our wedding reception: I actually wish Bobo and I had more time for those pictures, distraction at the wedding was too much but looking at the album later on I got to see people that I didn't know were at the event and it was interesting to see their funny poses.

I TRIED BAHIYAH ORGANICS ON MY NATURAL HAIR !

I've really not been using a lot of products on my hair but I find that it is necessary to invest in some good ones especially as I've not been treating this hair kindly. I would go for days without applying any sort of moisturizer, water or anything, imagine how hard the hair would be after weeks (covers face) I've gone weeks doing this and the end result is always the iron sponge hair...shrunken, tangled and hard! 

Ameera of Bahiyah Organics contacted me just in time, it is a Nigerian brand and every ingredient is 100% natural. I was advised at a salon to try out deep conditioning to strengthen my hair and bring back moisture. OK. I just took out that kinky twist I did and so my hair was very dirty and very dry. Let's do this.

See ehn…This November has been a one-kind month abeg e should come and do and go. I was shocked to my bones when I heard on Saturday that ChazB was dead…seriously! How can he die? I mean, I heard him on the radio Friday evening but he sha complained that he had to leave early because he wasn't feeling too well…if you were listening to his show “Sharing Life Issues" on Rhythm FM” you will agree with me that you didn't really take it to heart much…When I heard he passed, I cried. I wonder how the drive home today will be…and tomorrow, and the days after.
