I "USED TO" LOVE TRAVELLING


Hello FAB people,

A few things about being FAB is that you tend to work a lot and harder than most; your sleep time is punctuated by beeps on your phone indicating urgent emails and sometimes calls from colleagues who can hardly relate to the time zone you are in; you hardly find time to eat properly; you go to loads of meetings and if you spend seven hours or more travelling, you end up having to respond to over a hundred emails! In all of this you are expected to turn-up at meetings and events looking well-rested, sharp and in control. Permit to shout this out...PERSON GO DIE O!

I refuse to lament about this though as the path of FABness wasn't thrust upon me, she only presented herself and I fell in love. FABness peeped through an opening in my door, I saw half of her face and boy was she pretty! I leapt from my bed, opened the door to let her in and as we lay in bed together, I made a promise to her..."I will never let you go as long as I live!" Sometimes I wonder whether or not I should have done a proper courtship with her before saying, "I do!"

I would usually tell people that I love travelling but about a week ago, I finally admitted to myself that I really didn't like travelling after all. I will tell you my reasons shortly.

I am sure you read about my travel to Sri Lanka, if you didn't search within the blog archives and try to find it. I managed to come into Lagos for 3 nights after my Asian travels with the intent of registering to vote in the elections coming up in April, and yes, I did. I immediately left for Dubai and subsequently New York right after where I attended the New York Fashion Week with our amazing Fashion Editor, Pepper  where we saw over a dozen shows and attended a couple of fashion parties, most memorable was the Patricia Fields after-party (Look at the images and you will understand why).

I spent 10 days in New York and permit to mention that FAB Magazine is now distributed in NewYork and across other states in the US - store details coming soon.

Moved on to Chicago, then Atlanta, then Dallas, then Houston, then Chicago, then Minnesota, then Chicago, then back to New York, then Dubai and finally Lagos! I am positive a lot of you are immediately envious, and yes, I usually spend 5% of my time ensuring I take pictures that will keep you envious for a long time. However, I do not envy myself much! In 3 weeks I have been on 14 different flights! Who the hell does that?! I have taken a total of 18 flights in 6 weeks. I now officially hate travelling as I got airsick on one of my trips and got feverish, with a headache and nausea on a particular flight! I sincerely dread the next flight I will be on  shortly but then it is a price to pay for FABness! Till I update you next, I hope my fun pictures inspire you to envy! Lol!

Have an amazingly FAB week!
