Hey quirky humans,

If you follow me on facebook and Instagram which you probably should if you are not following me already,I have been sharing snippets from my events thus far and finally here are the details.

The first event I was invited for was the HEALTH,WELLNESS & GREEN LIVING MARKET which took place on the 8th of April.I was so keen on going because…..now this is just between us but I am probably the most unhealthy person I know,so did I get the boost I needed? lets find out.

First things first WHAT I WORE:

I was going for a sporty yet fashionable look,but my closet showed me that apart from my growing trainers/sneaker collection I had almost zero sporty items.It is at times like this that one has to improvise and so I went with my suphirio t shirt,paired with my favourite mom jeans and an Adidas cap (courtesy of the thrift gods).

For shoes I put on my red Adidas sneakers,was I team Adidas or nah ?Let me know what you think of my outfit in the comment section.

Oh yes back to the event………………

There were so many amazing people who had stalls filled with products centered around natural ingredients ranging from hair products to food.Here are a couple that I got to talk to:

What particularly caught my eye was the lay out of their stall it was very creative with the use of the wooden crates as shelves,the bowl of fruits however did make me hungry lol .No I am not about to leave out the sunflowers because they gave the stall such bohemian vibes.

All in all I learnt than I shan’t live on junk food alone,fine I knew that already but after this event I am really having less chicken :).I hope you enjoyed reading this post and a big shout out to Maricko for taking all my pictures on this day.
