Hey pumpkins, how are you all doing. I hope your week was as good as mine or even better. Today’s topic is all about my first official blog collaboration with Praise Abu of my mystyelookbookseries. I am beginning to expand my horizon which is a good thing to be grateful for, the bad thing is that I am doing it at a later time when all my blogger friends have done all these. *sad*
The struggle to have a blog collaboration was real.. From who to collaborate with ( because everyone is actually very busy or too far) to location to finding a photographer of which we finally settled for our phone cameras.
At some point I thought all my plans with this whole collaboration would result into futility. All of this changed when my path came crossing with Praise Abu ( drum rolls).
Praise Abu took on with this collaboration like it was her life when in actual fact I reached out to her first. It felt like God sent me a helper. There was so much enthusiasm and dedication on her part, I literally had to catch up with her and be at same pace with her.
After so much going back and forth on the location, we finally gave in to meeting at cafe neo in E Centre, Yaba.
The outfit of the day was actually denim inspired. Praise kept it simple by wearing a black spaghetti top of chiffon quality and a jean with a choker and a scarf tied to her bag while I decided to play a little by wearing a denim shirt on a maxi skirt and sneakers as you would see in the pictures below.
It was my first time at the cafe neo but it wasn’t Praises’first. Their reception and service delivery was not a bad one. I particularly enjoyed their Iced cafe mocha, that drink was my Little piece of heaven and guess who gave me that treat, Praise of course.
I thought I was going to see the end of Praise’s good and cheerful side but she beat me to it by proving that there’s a lot of goodness still in her. My comfort was her utmost priority.
We talked about blogging ( obviously) and a host of blogging events which I sadly missed out. She also gisted me about her first blogger tale at cafe neo. There’s no dull moment with Praise Abu. Her funny facial expressions and what not still remain fresh in memory even as I write this post.
Now to the part that I love most (because I am becoming too obsessed with taking pictures.) Gosh, I was too happy when it got to the aspect of taking pictures. I had to tell myself that it was just a phone camera, what if I was really taking professional blogging pictures, Would I roll on the floor all in excitement??(shy)
There was yet another struggle in the search for someone who would take us pictures and anywhere at all that had nice background. And so when we finally saw one passerby we ran to get him. It almost looked like we just found our lost coin.

I couldn’t get enough of Praises’ signature poses, she taught me some though. It was fun doing this with my blogger colleague turned buddy, friend, sister, love…
Baby girl, cheers to the blogging life. Many more goodies await us. Thank you for doing this with me.
