The weekend is here! What did you do with your election holiday? If you’re like me, you’re in bed (mentally) preparing to go out. If it’s your birthday, Happy Birthday! If you’re getting married, Happy Married Life! If you’re just being you and celebrating how special you are, Happy Being You Day!
Oftentimes, I get enquiries about where I “shop online” and to be honest, I’ve cut down on my shopping in the past few months. However, there are some stores that break through my Alaroro barrier once in a while (read: almost everyday) and it takes strength to not buy from these stores.
Their things are quality and affordable! How can I say no? Well, here’s my current list of affordable and alaroro friendly Instagram stores:
Halloooo Alaroros and Shopaholics alike,
To those of you who have a desire to be both, come do that at the NFB Yard Sale!
You get to shop the wardrobes of Fashion and Style bloggers with a diverse collection of styles, sizes, and price points, whether new or pre-loved. You’ll probably find me at the Budget Booth, which offers items at N3500 and below, and if I am feeling my pocket a bit – the Bargain Booth will be a good place to stop.
Follow the official NFB yard sale IG account here! More details after the image. There will be an Auction during the yard sale, which was conceptualized as a fundraising strategy for the Iroto School of Catering in Illoti community, Ogun State. The Yard Sale team is currently in correspondence with a representative of the Women’s Board Educational Cooperation Society, a not-for-profit NGO set up to contribute to the development of the Nigerian woman through various educational activities. The mission of the school is to continuously equip young women from impoverished backgrounds with skills and a better chance of sustaining themselves and their families.
The auction, hosted by the fashion and lifestyle blogger, Cassandra Ikegbune of cassiedaves.com, will feature gorgeous and rare/valued wardrobe pieces donated by style-savvy influencers, and entrepreneurs such as Bidemi Zakariyau of LSF PR, Sharon Ojong, Sika Osei, Bola Balogun, and Temi Dollface.
Date: July 24th, 2016 Booths Open: 12pm. Auction starts: 3pm
Venue: 35A Ethnic Heritage Center, Raymond Njoku. Ikoyi, Lagos

Who knows? Maybe I’ll sell at the next one. My wardrobe sure needs a major overhaul.
