So, the Lagos Home Show and Foodie in Lagos Fair was on Sunday (Whoop!). I’d silently been awaiting it and couldn’t wait to go. I wasn’t exactly sure I was going to make it because of some stuff going on with me professionally, but Sunday rolled around and I was like “YAAAAAAAASSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!”. Nothing was going to keep me away from the rooftop of Mega Plaza’s parking garage-lot-thingy, and it was so very worth it.
You already know I’m a foodie, but did you know I’m a sucker for interior decor? I love seeing a beautifully decorated space. Even more, I love the things used to make the space beautiful. Walking around the Lagos Home Show was bliss to me. So many vendors came out with a lot of great items. There were storage baskets, picture frames, clocks, notebooks, mirrors, lamps and a whole tonne of stuff. The greatest thing about it all was that all this stuff was predominantly made in Nigeria.
“But Coco, how did you manage to walk around and take in all this stuff?”. That’s simple – I had libations and supplements from the Foodie in Lagos Fair! The last time I saw so much food in one place was at last year’s Eat.Drink.Festival. The Foodie in Lagos Fair was beyond brilliant. Besides being right next to the Lagos Home Show, the vendor turn out was impeccable. I say this because there wasn’t a concentration of one particular type of food or snack at the venue. There was italian cuisine, waffles, stir fry (by my favorite couple, btw), small chops, and pastry. This is, of course, not mentioning the drinks.
Mhen, it was truly an awesome day! Thanks so much to everyone who put it together and to everyone who came out. You all made the fair as lit as it was. People were actually dancing because the DJ was MADT! I know it’s a yearly thing, but I honestly can’t wait for the next one.
Meanwhile, did you notice the blog got a facelift? What do you think? It’s still under construction and I’m a bit worried because it’s not looking so cutesy anymore.
