Hey everyone. It’s so good to be blogging again. I told you all I was going to be away for a short while because I had an ongoing project that needed my full attention. I hate that I’ve had to keep this a secret from you all… So the gist is, I started a clothing factory in Abuja, where we make clothes and school uniforms in bulk. Those of you that own small businesses know how challenging and time consuming it can be in the beginning. We haven’t officially launched, but we’ve started a few productions. Full gist on that later.

I’ve been here for a week and then I’d return to Florida for the rest of my vacation. For me, I love to visit London only for the shopping experience… and to catch up with my cousins and old friends. Unlike previous trips, I didn’t get to hang out with friends and I also did very little shopping. This was a true family vacation, with everyone spending time together and participating in only family-friendly activities (my mama made sure of that). Thankfully the weather wasn’t too bad, and so a lot of fun places like the Theme park at Chessington were open, we also went on the Cable car, Boat ride, Big bus tour and other activities.
…I managed to squeeze out time for a little shopping.

Even while in the US I still order things online from the UK. Only problem I have with them is their sizing.
My sister in law who traveled with us had a particular hard time finding a single dress that fit properly. She is South African……. If you think the average Nigerian woman is curvy you should travel down south lol. Whenever I buy skirts and jeans from London I ALWAYS have to adjust the waist. I am sure you curvy sisters can relate with our smaller waist to hip ratio. I don’t even bother buying jeans from here anymore thanks to shopping sites like Fashion Nova that cater to curvy women.

On the Big Bus tour
We had way too much fun on this trip, I leave tomorrow, and I’m so excited to continue the rest of my vacation. For my birthday week, I’d be visiting, Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami. It’s going to be WILD!!! You’d get to hear all about it and see photos too. To my friends here in London that I wasn’t able to see on this trip, I promise to see you on my next trip by God’s grace. You guys know I love you and I’m sooooo sorry to Tolu, Deolu, Kelvin, Khairat and Timi…. (Yes I had to list your names… Lmho)
