First Vlog as a Married Woman - Thanksgiving Weekend Vlog #3

Hello world,

Have I formally introduced myself to you all as a married woman yet? Forgive me please, it skipped my mind while I was too busy being married. LOL..

Ok ok, I'm not crazy, I'm still the same old Lizzy but I thought that intro would amuse you guys.

Anyhooooooo, if you don't know by now, yes I (we) are married and it's been an interesting time to say the least! God truly showed up during our wedding and I'd love to thank all of our vendors listed IN THIS POST once again for delivering impeccably! Our families and loved ones, you are all so very much appreciated. I most certainly still have to blog about wedding stuff but I'm still soaking up in the joys of being a newlywed with the most amazing man ever!

Along with my husband came his family - all of whom I love so very much and I was glad to have celebrated our first thanksgiving as a married couple with some of them.

Since thanksgiving break was a 4 day weekend and we had quite a few things planned - from shopping for furniture to hanging out with my bestie, church and some other things - I challenged myself to making another vlog and it was a success!

I would like to use this moment to thank everyone of you out there who have congratulated me and said so many kind things about our surprisingly much publicized wedding. It is all still beyond me, but all the glory goes to God. Our Hashtag #Amizzy2016 will fill you in if you don't know what I'm talking about.

Thanks to everyone who celebrated along with us. May your reasons for celebration never end in Jesus name.

I have so much to say and plenty to share with you guys (yes, pictures too for those asking), but that will be another post entirely because this one is about my first vlog as a married woman! ;)...

Please do enjoy the youtube video below.

Don't forget to subscribe to my channel because I've realize that this vlogging thing isn't as hard as it used to seem... I hope to do better with updating you guys and hopefully answer some of the many questions that fill up my inbox every day.

P.S: Grab a cup of your favorite drink and popcorn cos this is quite long (as requested by my snapchat fam!). The majority voted for ONE LONG video as opposed to multiple short ones. Also, what would your preference be for future reference? Let me know in the comment section.

P.P.S: The necklace I wore with the map of Nigeria in my vlog is from: - They are a great store for an amazing cause and proceeds go towards charity! You should absolutely check them out. I got tons of remarks on the necklace.

Till later, God Bless.

My Bridal Shower: Vlog#2 and Pictures

Hello Lovers!

It was my bridal shower two Saturdays ago and it was literally one of the most exciting times I've had in a while! I'm doing my best to update you guys with a few things about this wedding season, and I hope you understand when I say it's been a busy season! Follow our hashtag #Amizzy2016 for more updates. 

I have few pictures to share with you all from the shower and I am also going to be chatting a bit in this post, so buckle up and enjoy! I also vlogged about this day, so watch the video at the end. 

My Maid Of Honor and Bridesmaids planned the event and it was everything I wanted and more. I am so happy and blessed by everyone that showed up with their smiles, love and gifts. 

Lots of you guys have seen pictures from the shower on instagram and snapchat and the most popular question has been: Was it a Surprise Bridal Shower Lizzy?

Well, the simple answer is Yes and No. 
Hahaha, see it was somewhat of a surprise shower. I didn't know the details and what to expect on the day of, but the week of the shower, I was officially told the date and time to show up, so that I could get ready for it in True Lizzy Fashion.  

And Boy was I ready??!!?! Hahaha

I arrived at the venue beaming from ear to ear! By the way, the venue (Grace Banquet Hall) was amazing! It was a fully wheelchair accessible hall in Dallas Texas!!! It was very spacious, had no rugs (pushing a wheelchair on rugs can be tedious), and I heard the owner is very hands on and provides everything one needs to have a great event there. I'm so glad that my MOH chose the place for the shower. 

My makeup was flawlessly done by @AmberFritzHair

My friend and one of my bridesmaids - Tope of Re-flect Photography - took amazing pictures and here are some details from the day that I loved so very much!
Customized balloons with my name on them!

Yummy deserts were made by @moes_desserts

Everything tasted so good, especially these coconut macaroons.

 My Bridesmaids all wore black, and friends were notified to wear all white. :)

I really thanks everyone that came to the bridal shower. Couldn't post every photo taken, but here are a few....

The Instagram picture frame was a BIG HIT! It was made by ME (Hello DIY)!! --- I will blog about it in detail after this whole wedding bruhaha is over! (Please hold me accountable).

I Loved my dress!!!!

And here is the Vlog Below!! Enjoy!!! 

That's it for now!
Thank you once again to everyone that made this day a great one for me. It has certainly made me all the more excited for our wedding day! 

Till later, God Bless

I Vlogged!! Roll With Me - Vlog#1

Hello Loves.

This past weekend I did something I've always wanted to do and it's also something that has been requested by a few people many times.

The logistics made no sense to me at first, but this past Sunday, I had an event to attend with a few friends, so I seized that opportunity to Vlog and dare I say.. it was challenging!

Vlogging, holding up a camera, and pushing a wheelchair.... do not entirely mix up together. LOL... But with determination and help from some friends, I have what we shall now refer to as my 1st Vlog EVER!
