My Naturals in the City 16 Recap!


Hey, sistren!

Any brothers in the house today? Raise your hands in the comments! 🙂

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, 🙂

Even though I could not indulge in the yoga sessions, or the makeup class, or listen to all the super interesting talks- see the event lineup here– (perks of being an organiser haha) I had a great time being in the midst of all the colour, positive vibes, beautiful faces and black girl magic!

I also got to do some shopping, and trust me, I have been thinking about the yummy coconut and cassava salad from our caterer Kitchen Butterfly! Mmm mmm.

The official photos from our official photographer will be up on soon enough (I’m really looking forward to them!) but for now, here are my amateur photos from the day. I finally got a DSLR after wanting one for  3 years,whoop whoop! Her name is Lolia. So, sit back, relax and let me take you through just a little bit of Naturals in the City through Lolia’s eyes 🙂

Twinning in denim! I originally had plans for a twist-out, but woke up feeling very minimalist that morning, so the twists stayed pinned up.

It was a beautiful day. Special thanks to our speakers and workshop facilitators, our vendors, our caterer Kitchen Butterfly, Cafe Neo, Ebun, every single person who came out to hang with us at NITC 16, everyone who helped us spread the word! Thank you. Special shout out to the best organizers: Natural Nigerian, Carib Health and Ms Isioma! ^_^

Naturals in the City is Lagos’ quarterly natural lifestyle meet-up so we’ll definitely be back again this December! Tentatively, on December 17. This date is subject to change, but pencil it into your calendar now, so you don’t forget!
