Some of you might have seen some bloggers post about this on instagram and twitter and for those that have no idea, there was an event on Sunday, 11th January 2015. I was so excited when I realized I could attend at least school didn't spoil my plans this time.
It was a picnic/hangout for young creatives and was held at a park. The dress code was eclectic retro.everyone brought something for the table which was really cool, there was too much food(cakes, cookies, fruits, sandwiches etc.) and drinks for everyone, we sat and talked about different topics from fashion, to blogging and the different challenges we are facing currently relating to the different things we do.
Later, the organizers grouped us into 4 and each group was to create an outfit using the items given to each group. the items: cellophane, pins, net material, scissors, lipstick and eye shadow (not for the outfit lol) . my group created a crop fringe top and an asymmetric cut and we came 3rd place :( lol. each group was really creative though especially the group that won.

It was really fun, everyone was free, friendly and ready to share their ideas. I finally got to see some bloggers which was really cool. I love the fact that we are trying to create events for creatives to come together and share really useful ideas especially in Nigeria because blogger meet ups rarely happen here and hopefully there would be more events :)
