Naturals in the City was last Saturday, 17th September 2016. If you were in Lagos and you could have made it but you didn’t, you really missed o. Sorry, not sorry! 😛 But, to make sure you do not miss NITC updates, just stay subscribed to the blog, or sign up for direct updates on our official Naturals in the City website, nitcnigeria.com 🙂
