Hi everyone. We have got some great news for our ever-so-beautiful BN Beauty Belles. This Friday, 21st February 2014, yours truly (I am talking about me, Jennifer Obiuwevbi) will be sitting down with some of Lagos’ fab beauty vloggers, bloggers and beauty influencers at the Social Media Week 2014 Lagos: Beauty UnMasked event.
We will be discussing various facets of beauty especially misconceptions about beauty and how social media has re-defined beauty and self-acceptance. It is going to be fresh, interactive and above all informative.
You can register to attend and I can’t wait to meet you all there. Check out details on the event below.
