Birthday Photo Shoot

It was my birthday yesterday!

No Red Velvet this year

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know because I posted a couple of pictures from a birthday photo shoot I had. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, what are you waiting for? I’m @thejenniferabah.
Now, here’s the backstory for the photo shoot. I’m in a Whatsapp group with a number of my colleagues turned friends where we have random chats about random things. So a few weeks ago, a friend of mine (thank you Yejide!) mentioned in the group chat that there was a giveaway on Instagram for a free birthday photo shoot for anyone born in February. All you had to do was follow the studio on Instagram and leave a comment with your birthday. I did it just for fun and I won!

I did not think I would win guys! I’m not good at getting my pictures taken and I’m very awkward with posing and I can be quite uncomfortable with being the center of attention so when I found out I won I was like “Ewo! Who sent me!”.

Anyways, I’m really glad I won because the pictures are so good!

If you’ve seen a couple on Instagram, here’s more!

Instapicks Backlogs #2

Hey beautiful people,

Did your week go well? Mine was just so-so.

I hope you’ve entered for the giveaway that Nafisah and Oge of Coily Head of Hair and I are having.

It’s my birthday tomorrow by the way! I will probably have a post up tomorrow but in the event that I don’t, I just thought to let you know. I will be a quarter of a century old and I sure do feel old! 😦

You know how you have so many things you wish you would have achieved by a certain age and then that age comes around and you’ve basically achieved nada on your list of goals? You don’t? *cough* Me neither! *nose grows Pinocchio style*

Anyways, here’s the rest of my Instapicks Backlogs and they are sort of a lot.

Enjoy!

Instapicks Backlogs #1

Hi guys,

Instapicks of the Week is back *confetti*

I will be starting with some of my picks from the time I was away before we go back to normal.

They should be done in about 2 or 3 posts and will be called Instapicks Backlogs.

For Instapicks Backlogs, I will be using my old posting method where you can’t see the handles and captions not the method I used in this post. Sorry 😦

Enjoy

Instapicks of the week #09

Hey!

If you missed Instapicks last week, please accept my sincere apologies for not posting.

You see, what had happened was… I don’t even remember what happened.

Let’s all hold hands and sing the theme song of Frozen as we forgive and let it go.

I’ll more than make up for it with this post because you are in for a picture overload. Brace yourself!

Thanks to ‘Denike, I found a new way to post the Instagram pictures and videos here in such a way that you can see each person’s handle, caption (which on some occasions is even doper than the picture) etc!

I’m so excited!

So enjoy!

Instapicks of the week #08

Bonsoir,

This week, I wasn’t so present on Instagram and I hope this doesn’t tell in the pictures.

How are you guys doing?

I’ve been slightly overwhelmed with work but I feel a bit refreshed now, thanks to the weekend. Hopefully this refreshed feeling doesn’t vanish by Tuesday!

Anywho, here are my picks for the week:

So enjoy!

Instapicks of the week #06

Bonjour,
I hope you had a good week? Yes? Whoop whoop!

This week, I had 68 Instagram posts shortlisted for my Instapicks Of The Week! 68!

There were just so many good posts and I really wish I could include all but I can’t. I managed to cut it down to 19 which is still a lot but that was the best I could do so…
Warning: Picture overload ahead! Enjoy!

Instapicks of the week #04

Hey people, 

Who else had a rough week? I know I did. Hopefully this new week will be better. 

Lately, I’ve been struggling to get through some days. I’m usually tired, sometimes physically but most times mentally. Most days just seem so tiringly repetitive. I try to stay positive by encouraging myself that things will get better and this too shall pass. How do you overcome negativity? 

I know I’ve been slacking in the blog post department and hopefully that changes soon. I always plan to post but life gets in the way.

I have a few long overdue product reviews that I will be doing pretty soon so watch this space.

Oh and NITC is this weekend (Saturday, 26th September), show of hands in the comment section if you’ll be there!

So, I bring you my Instagram roundup for the week; enjoy!

I saw this picture but didn’t plan to include it. Some minutes later I saw a very silly, chauvinistic comment on another picture and wanted to reply the fellow when this picture above came to my mind. I quickly backspaced, ignored and moved on with my life. Afterwards, I had to include this picture in this post.

Hi guys, I hope you’re having a restful weekend even though it ends shortly (not to burst your bubble but *pop*).

This week was a bit slow in the social media department (or maybe I missed the fun stuff) but I managed to get a couple of posts I liked.
