Trust you’re great.
Happy New Month!
If I told you tomorrow will make it exactly 2 years I’ve being in this country and I can’t boast of attending at least 5 events you wouldn’t believe it; but that’s the stone cold truth. To think there’s one event or the other happening in this country every single day. Its 2 things (me trying to defend my anti-social self) – I hate to go out alone: apart from awesome events I have missed out on, I also haven’t made a friends, friends willing to go out with me. 2, I’ll admit that I’m not really the social person: you practically have to drag me out of the comfort of my bed and laptop. I’m that one friend that will agree to go for an event with you but pull out at the last minute.
No, I ain’t proud! But…you know…
I’m just caught up in my own world, I’ve mastered the art of entertaining myself so I’m almost never get bored. My mother will say “you don’t know you’re a young girl…you need to go out and socialise…” in other words, people don’t get married by sitting down at home…I mean the husband wouldn’t miraculously find his way to your house.
Hello, we’re in the internet age!
People are getting married through Instagram and Facebook.
(sadly with all the men sliding into my DM I’m yet to find me a bf )
Then again, this internet craze generation will rather snap chat, Instagram and what not rather than socialise almost through out an event – even you at home watching their snaps will feel as though you’re live at the event. To be honest, I’m also a culprit. #snapchataddict
But, I promise you and myself that things are about to change! Tega is turning a new leaf…still a work in progress. I’m going to attend as many events as possible and I’ll share photos from the events here. My life’s about to get interesting. I hate to admit but Its been boring!.
Anyways, I wrote a post (Here) about Art Night Fusion (AFN) last week.
“Art Fusion Night is a social event platform that was created to give the undiscovered and upcoming creative community of the UAE, a legitimate chance to showcase their artistic talents and network with like-minds”.
The event was held on friday at 7pm prompt: no African time for a change. I enjoyed every bit of this event to the point that I had to ask myself if this is all I’ve been missing. #sigh
The event showcased talented artist from across the UAE as well as upcoming artiste. People are indeed talented, almost had me questioning God what my talent is again. . My highlight of the event was the poetry; did I mention I love poetry?? The ladies killed it. unadulterated talent. And of course there was music, the Dj threw in some Naija jams. Kudos to the organisers, they did a great job and to all those who showed up. It was a great turn out. I’m so looking forward to next year edition.
For my outfit, I wanted to go for a dress, but being an artistic event, I wanted drama; not necessarily but the mustard palazzo was just perfect. Plus I had just gotten the gorgeous chokers and I really wanted to wear it for the event – I consulted my friend Timi (Hey babe…check out her blog here) and she suggested I accessorise by adding a belt and a broach. I dont know about you but I totally loved the outfit.
What do you think?? nailed it or nah! And what will you wear to such event?
