Because life is for LIVING...

by ZASHADU Bags


Now this is what I call friendship!

Abandoning husbands, partners, children and work, the beautiful and talented photographer, Aisha Augie Kuta and I spent the most wonderful 6 days in February totally relaxing, sleeping till afternoon, shopping, gisting, laughing, eating, getting massages and being pampered in all manners of ways, on an impromptu holiday in the UAE.It was a wonderful blessing to catch up with my friend away from work, have some time away from the normal hustle and bustle of Lagos living and the best thing of all was that it was unplanned! I came back refreshed, clear headed and very grateful for everything. Enjoy these images x
