COME WITH ME TO BALOGUN MARKET
The first thing I wanted was a wig, I just took out my fish-bone braids and I look like hakuna matata, well, mini hakuna matata and I need to wig out for the next one week so I went wig shopping, can I just say trying on wigs is the worst thing in the world especially when you’re all sweaty and everywhere is noisy. The first wig I picked was so pretty but as soon as I was told it was 35k I dropped it like hot dodo! Emi ke? Mba nu. I gently strolled to another shop where I bought one ombre wig for 3500 naira pere and I bought this burgundy wig for 1500. That’s more like it. How do I look?
On my way to the Ankara section I found this Tinubu Square, it’s still under construction but it was refreshing to see it in the middle of that rowdy hot market, I wished I could just drench myself in the waterfall! I hope that this Tinubu Square is maintained because that na our problem for naija, zero maintenance culture. Tsk Tsk Tsk. We can build, but to manage it? mba nu.
From there we left off to eat, my sister told me about this Buka she had lunch a while ago and we started looking for the place oh, we nor know name and we kept asking people “oga abeg you know that mama put where dem dey sell salad and queue?” and we were directed there. I was quite surprised because the food was so good and cheap, compared to all these fast food places. Buka food will not kiil you. They were organised and the food looked good, I could see why people would queue up for it. The name of the Buka is SALADO...just in case you're craving buka food, you know where to go...
Have you ever used these eye pencils? They last for months and months and they are not too shabby. In fact, I like them a lot. Instead of wasting money buying expensive eye pencil, just go and buy Davis brand, 50 naira pere. There's nothing you don't see in the market, that includes the red thongs my sister is holding up, 150 naira per pata. Cheap and still sexy. LOL Earring nko? we saw. Panda things but aren't all these jewelry we buy from New Look and co panda? just panda in dollars and pounds. Each pair of earring was 80 naira or so. We "priced" it.
Ankara shopping time: I bought about five Ankara materials, so each material was 6 yards, we split the bill and will share each material, 3 yards each. They’re such pretty colours and fabrics. Guess what? I bought one for you too. Yes, one lucky reader will win 3 yards of beautiful Ankara. Skip to the bottom of the page!
