ETHNIC TRADITION

PA0_4471-2431090920-O

Hi guys! Hope your week has been a great one. Besides the unusual exhaustion, my week has been good. This trimester has been pretty interesting…some times, I feel energized and other times, all I want to do is sleep. That is exactly what happened yesterday. I was so exhausted and this prevented me from blogging as scheduled. I gazed at my laptop half asleep…smh! Pregnant Life!

On another note, I am excited for the weekend because I have my 3D/4D scan appointment. I have seen lots of pictures and videos on YouTube and I am so excited to see my munchkin…yayyy! πŸ™‚  Look out for my second ‘Pregnancy Chronicles’ video coming soon with my answers to some of your questions. In case you didn’t see the first video, check it out here.

I wore the top in this post to a Nigerian traditional wedding some weeks ago. I wanted something comfortable and stylish, so I came up with the style and my tailor customized it. She also made the pants from a stretchy material for comfort. It was a beautiful wedding and I danced in those heels all night. Nigerian/Yoruba Traditional weddings are always colorful and beautiful as seen here. It is always nice seeing everyone with different styles of the same fabric.

Have a wonderful day! Thank you so much for stopping by…
xoxo
