The House of Tara Beauty Bruncheon

17 Nov 2013

Hello lovelies,
Sometime last week, I was at the House of Tara Beauty Bruncheon. This was an event organised by HOTI for members of the Beauty & Lifestyle industry - beauty professionals and the media.

At the event, Tara made a speech with 2 words as the mainstay Conversation & Collaboration. She said that these are 2 things that makeup artists should learn to do as it will form the bedrock of a stronger and longer lasting industry in Nigeria.

2 of my favourite makeup bloggers Stella of Stella's Addiction and Yemisi Dada of Misykona have published posts on the event with pictures. I couldn't take any pictures of my own due to the fact that Samsung is yet to fix up my device. However, I got some really great pictures which are up everywhere (Bellanaija included)

Instead of putting up the same pictures, I will just share some pictures I showed up in
Miss Wendy (my teacher when I was at HOT. It was wonderful to see her after so many years and she looked really beautiful) and I with Bimpe Onakoya's bouquet which I was famzin
Theodora Mogo and I behind her. I wore a black structured chiffon top, a vintage skirt I got from Elsie Vintage (view another styling of the skirt here) and vintage brown brogues I go at a thrift store (which I have literally been rocking everywhere recently)
Bimpe Onakoya & Love Olaleye were recognised by HOT for their recent achievements and presented with bouquets. Omon and I were famzin with the bouquets
Lolade of FaceTalk & I
and we were eating...... Yemisi couldn't wait for us to be done. If I catch her eh
we all struck a pose with Banke and Tara

Only recently heard about Leslie and her skincare line - Cookie skin. I am right behind her and I must say that I do have a graceful neck *grin*
From the left - Omon of Beautycook, Gbemi of Hegai & Esther (owner of the gorgeous Asta Gel liners), Lolade Ogunjimi of Dainty Affairs (I was meeting her for the first time and she said I was as pretty as a doll *blush*), Bimpe Onakoya & I
Teni of Beauty by Nature, Lola Maja, Yemisi Dada Seriki, Stella Maris of Stella's Addiction & I
The goodie bag from the Bruncheon (will feature in a subsequent post)
It was a very fun event and I would have kicked myself if I had missed it for anything in the world. I loved seeing everyone again after so long and of course you bet we gisted till way after the event was over, lol.

Thanks HOT for a wonderful event.
