I remember vividly saying to Tana “Come and visit me at Zinkata..I will treat you to a mini make-over”..I made the promise rather flippantly, without putting much thought to it..Tana is my dearest friend, Nnenna Ukadike’s 9 year old daughter..Seeing Tana’s eye’s light up in excitement sort of made me realise I would be held accountable..and really soon…

and Saturday it was.. My phone rang and it was Nnenna.. “Tana and I are coming over”! “Excellent! Lets get this show on”..In true treating the youg’uns form.. I wore a red frilly skirt by Tiffany Amber and a cropped top from Dahlia, all from my wardrobe..handmade sandals by Karelle finished  off my look and off I rushed quite excitedly to Zinkata..The red of my outfit also kind of put me back in Christmas spirits..

I was in such an awesome place in my head.. so awesome that I actually stopped by the Lekki-Ikoyi toll bridge and took a few photos.. The thought of Tana being super excited and happy put an extra spring in my step..

Tana’s make-over was really just about making her happy .. Zinkata is located inside Bmpro (Make-up studio).. so I booked Tana in for a  mini ” introuction to make-up session” as well as a manicure and pedicure. In all this Tana’s shy smile never wavered..

and so it went.. with laughter.. joy and of course “drama” from Momma (Nnenna)..when Tana boldly asked for coloured nail polish! (Lol)..What a fun day it was!!

May Joy and Grace surround you today.. Put a smile on someone’s face over the weekend .. The pleasant process would put a smile on yours as well.. Joy begets joy!!

May your days be blessed …
