    Hey Ink and Team, congratulations on a wonderful event, not to sound like a broken record, but I wasn’t invited and that day was my birthday (still pining over it) anyway I’ve moved on *kinda* don’t mind me…..LOL
    So for a next event, I think you guys should organize a wonderland event for married women, say people that have been married from 0-10 years. Give them an opportunity to relive their wonderland(wedding day), discuss different things that affect women, as wives,mothers,career/business women etc. Give them a forum to ask different kinds of questions and share their experiences on life,love,sex,kids,finance,inlaws,friends etc
    A lot of women go through a lot of stress daily and have even forgotten what it is like to relax.(some have even forgotten why they got married) So a weekend getaway would be nice for them to relax, be pampered with gifts, spa sessions, make overs and all.
    The event can be called “TAKE ME BACK TO WONDERLAND”
    That’s my two kobo… Adios!!!!

      Nice Concept Somiii, Happy Belated Birthday, sorry you missed the event, but you know what the bible says, “in all things give thanks” So thank God for the gift of another year and move on and just maybe, BN would approve this your event and you would be invited to “Take me back to wonderland” *winks*

    Congratulations BN on turning 10 and hosting a wonderful event. @Somiii’s idea is really on point and as Nappynekxx said husbands would benefit too.

    I think some of your celebration should center around what you offer (i.e music /movies and tv/ style / beauty etc)

    For movies /tv. An idea would be to run a fun competition for singletons and the top 10 winners are treated to a private movie screening of a hugely anticipated movie (e.g. Star Wars – the force awakens is due in December ). It could be a girl sleep-over event or weekend where life issues are discussed (how to succeed and remain focused), exercise/ an areobic class and fun games too.

    Alternatively or in addition select 10 charities (orphans and widows) Treat the kids to the movie experience and the women to some spa downtime.
