3 weeks ago, I turned 23🎉🎂🎊. I know I’m getting older because it was the first time, I was so busy that I wasn’t thinking of my birthday weeks ahead of time, even though certain people kept asking me what I was doing for it😞. I ended up taking the week off work and going to a beautiful and vibrant tropical island, Lagos, lol.
I think it’s safe to say this is going to be a year of first’s for me. For the first time ever, I spent my birthday at someone else’s party. Yes, you read that right. I was at a wedding and in true lagos wedding spirit, the afterparty was LIT 🍾.
There were plans for an intimate lunch with the S/O but by the time I woke up, replied half of my messages and put on my full face of makeup🙃, there was only enough time to go to the wedding. I didn't mind because as I get older, unless I’m also celebrating a wonderful achievement, I’m not pressed to be in the spotlight. So, my goal for this new age is to achieve a lot more than I have, that way I'll have something to celebrate in addition to being born next year.
Here are some pictures I took on the day, in this bespoke dress which was adjusted like million times. I'm so happy it was perfect in the end 🤗.
