At least that's how I feel tonight. The day started off looking sort of dreary but it turned out rather pleasantly. I got some unexpected gifts and who doesn't love unexpected gifts?
*Sam asked earlier for us to go out and I replied in the negative, I was really feeling down. But in spite of that he showed up at my place when I got home in the evening with my favourite food and my favourite things; perfumes! (Some people have shoe fetishes, some have bag fetishes, I have neither of those, perfumes are my opium and they're the fastest way to my heart.)
TBH I'm not the biggest fan of Bvlgari perfumes, but Jimmy Choo! Who doesn't love Jimmy Choo??? (Thank you boo).
Then I remembered I told my friend I'll come over this evening and since he stays close by I quickly rushed over. And I'm glad I did. Lagosians I just had the best Kilishi in town! I got a pack and was also given an extra package, as the good friend that I am. LOL.
Honestly this is the best kilishi I've had in a while, this was dinner, with a cold drink. (Hands down the most exciting dinner I've had in a minute). If you live in Lagos and you love kilishi then you have to try this, I'll be giving out a few packs on the blog soon (Mariam you should be the first recipient but unfortunately you're not in Lagos...).
And just as I was about leaving his place Henrietta alerted me that she was back home. So I rushed over. Now this isn't all smiles because Henri is leaving for the USA tomorrow where she will return from in some months with a bouncing baby! It's just a weird feeling that Henrietta/Chocolate won't be around. Henri is one of those friends; QC, UNEC and forever! Babe, I really do love you, I will miss you terribly. You have the most friends among anyone else I know and it's not by mistake, it's because of who you are. You're a truly lovable, witty, fun, kindhearted individual. Yeah we don't hang that often but babes I think you are freaking fantastic and that's why all your friends go out of their way, go above and beyond where you're concerned.
Last week Henrietta suggested she take me to the Spa; massages, mani-pedi, sauna and the whole works, all on her! I don't have any other girlfriend that would have suggested taking me out and spending good money on me on just a random day. Unfortunately I couldn't make it because I was busy but the thought itself meant so much to me. She's easily one of the most generous individuals I know (and God in his infinite mercies will continue to be generous to you babe. Amen) and tonight she once again showed me that generosity.
If I were to take a picture of the things this babe has given (me) it will be just too much, but tonight these are some of what I got.
The irony of this is that I spent thousands of naira on makeup including a brush set like this just a few days ago. And today Henrietta gave me this MAC set and a make up box with stuff I cannot afford to buy at the moment (that shimmery MAC powder, the Dior and Revlon lipsticks most especially), and I'm sincerely grateful.
I'll miss you my friend and neighbour. 'Can't wait till you get back. I just cannot wait to carry your offspring. LOL!
Ok, so that's that. No my life probably isn't as awesome as I made it sound in the post's Title but that's just how I feel tonight. Having friends that love, and express their love, makes my life feel so much richer. And with that thought I'm off to bed with a smile on my lips.
God, please let this mark the end of dry-spell season.
