Accordion Statement

Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday/Tuesday everyone! How was your weekend?

Hope you all had a fun filled weekend. My weekend was one of the most memorable time in my life. Yes, I am officially a Masters Degree holder. If you follow me on twitter or Facebook, you will know that I was so excited and nervous on Saturday that I was awake at 5am even though I didn’t have to be ready for my graduation ceremony until 8am.


My weekend was definitely a fun filled one. After my graduation ceremony and lunch with my family, I attended a friend’s wedding reception, which was fun. On Sunday, I had also attended a friend’s graduation dinner. There is nothing like being in the company of great friends & food. I am so excited for all my friends that graduated.

The fun weekend continues next weekend. I have another wedding again to attend. In addition, I will be celebrating my birthday plus graduation with a party on Sunday. I am so ready to dress up and dance surrounded by wonderful friends & great music.

PS: Over the weekend, I met two lovely readers. On Saturday, I met a beautiful/sexy mother of four Oyin. My mouth dropped when she told me that she has four kids–I hope to have such fab body like her after having kids. Then on Sunday, I also met Abitoye–soft spoken & sweet. Thank you to both ladies for your support and love. It was a pleasure meeting you two.

    The color of sunset and rose petals – fantastic! Well done, that the pink color diluted by other, neutral colors, including multi-colored necklace, including a shade of red! Ideal silhouette!
