The Big Apple and Me

I had always wanted to visit New york since like ummm FOREVER. So when my girls asked me sometime in April about a trip to NYC, I was definitely excited. We finally settled on a date that worked for everybody and later found out the Nigerian Reunion was on the same weekend. We decided to do our own thing as well as attend some NRC events. I needed some time to clear my head, meet new people, network, and just be FREE!!! I had A LOT of fun with my girls, met some new people, defiantly networked and visited one of the greatest cities in the world!!!

This weekend I met too many Nigerian Celebs:Basket mouth, Comedy Jedi, Wale Gates, Ramsey Nouah, Nnenna, Mrs Omokorode M.I Abaga and last but not least Banky W.

I also met a lot of my tweetfam, which was VERY EXCITING. They include @kidkonnect, @tommypearldee @kuitkatt @oluwasparkle @amebor @solitudechossen @mdemuren @temiwelli @naijadiva @chinnyn and many many more that I dont rememeber

I also met one blogger Miss Enigma aka Undercover007!!! She is sooooo pretty! and a very nice person. I wish we had more time to hangout. there is always a next time!! I am already planning my trip back.

In regards to the NRC, they put on a great event although it lacked proper organization in some parts, I do think they still need to be appreciated for putting the event together. The advice I have for the NRC executives is that they need to become more organized in general and let go of generic Nigerian attitudes towards things like poor time management. In general I had an AMAZING TIME, with my friends, tweetfam, blogfam and everyone else I met there. Here are some pictures!! Taking by me!!

PICTURES REMOVED AFTER TWO MONTHS!!!!!

Ok I'm tired..these are enough pics ya???? If you want to see more, be nice to me, buy me shoes and I would give you my facebook link..LOL!

Theme song for the weekend- "party hard'and "empire state of mind"

sidenote...after not wearing anything longer than my knees this weekend, I am punishing myself to only long dresses for the rest of the summer. The Ashewo in me shall not be seen again.

Peace, love and red velvet cake(yes i just made that up)
P.S Can you see that I am now FAT!, dont worry, working on it!

Hugs and Kisses.

Ms.O
