Weekend Recap, World Health Day and a Sandwich

Hey Guys

How are ya? Hope you enjoyed the Long weekend! How did you spend it?

Mine was very busy, yesterday was my day of rest. I only went to Savvy and Chic to get some Shea Butter Cups. I grabbed a copy of their Magazine too as there was a picture and little feature of me from the garden party. You can also see the letter I sent to them which was the winning entry for the 25K Mac Products giveaway :)

I went to RCCG Camp on Friday and I'm so glad I went, I was slightly upset when my dad said I had to go with him but in retrospect I'm glad he did. It was a great night, was able to give my CDs to a number of people that I really respect and admire :)

Saturday was the Gidi Culture Fest, you can see some of the pictures I took on the Fayrouz Blog.
Don't you just love Berry Dakara's glasses? I finally met her hubby Cakes, Yayy :)

My Camera flash stopped working sometime in December and there were many times this weekend that I wished I had an external flash. Someone even suggested I upgrade my camera to a professional one as I use an entry level DSLR. If you've got a spare camera lying around somewhere in need of a new owner, I'm available ;) hehe

On Sunday, I went for 4 different events, my cousins wedding Thanksgiving Service, then the reception then my Grand Aunt's 80th and then a youth event at my church. Choi, I was tired when I got home at 9 but it was a very fulfilling day. Fela Durotoye was the guest speaker at the youth event, and I learnt A LOT. I need to start sharing these events with you so I won't be the only one benefiting.

Today is World Health Day and the theme is Food Safety. I'm not a calorie counter or team Fit Fam but I have been making Sandwiches for Breakfast these past few weeks. I'll share some pictures of the Tuna Sweetcorn Sandwich I ate on the day we were waiting for election results to be announced.

What's your go to sandwich combination?


  1. I have not yet perfected my sandwich making skills. No matter how hard I try, mine never ever turns out like those in the shops - I gave up a long time ago..... I'm off to Farouz blog to look at your pictures.....

    Happy Easter

  2. Everything you can think of (except Sardine), the more the merrier ... it's like that o, from feature in the magazine to Cover, Keep going!!

    1. Loool, I want to see a picture of the Sandwiches you make o!
      Amen o, step by step :)

  3. Lol at the subtle suggestion for a new camera, I think we would all love a new one. Count your blessings girl, I'm still trying to figure out how to get a DSLR. Of course, I've already begged daddy but he does not see the point so let the prayers commence lol. I checked out your pics from the Gidi Culture Fest, you did good, I wish there were more photos though. Hopefully, I'll get to attend one of these events some day. Your sandwich looks very healthy. I like to go for sausage and stir-fried onions on Italian bread for my sandwich, its so good but probably not the healthiest choice, oh well I workout though.

    1. Hehe, i just had to plug it in. Natural lighting has now become my best friend but I'm hinting at it for my next birthday present :)
      Oh, wow, so what camera do you use for your pictures?
      There are many more photos, the post has been split into 2 or 3, will let you guy's know when they put up the other ones.
      Hehe, it does, especially with all the colours :)
      hmmm, I like sausage sandwiches too but I've never had it with Italian Bread and I'm not a fan of fried onions.
      What kind of exercise do you do?

  4. I hope you get the new camera. I have been using a Canon Powershot SX50 HS, with a little natural lighting and editing, it does the trick. I look forward to seeing more of the pictures from the event. It's unfortunate that you don't like fried onions, my family loves it! I always have to make large portions. As for exercise, I try to do a mix of Jilllian Michaels and Keaira Lashae workouts at home three to four times a week,

    1. I hope so too. I pray my parents don't say I'm too old for presents anytime soon.
      Oh, wow, you're diligent with your exercise, keep it up!

  5. I love sandwiches! I miss tuna sandwiches, my mum makes them. I usually make mine with chicken chunks or sausages in bits, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, a little olive oil. Pita pockets and flat bread are bae.
    Off to check out your shots for Fayrouz

    1. Sounds yum, I haven't bought Pita Bread or Flatbread in Lagos before. When I was younger I used to Love Pita Bread and Hummus, might have to look for it :)

  6. Awww, Eyah, soon come :)
    Thank you :D

  7. Am so making this ! by the way let me book down the old camera while we await the new one
