Man! I’m so excited to share these pictures with you all!
Background: Prom was Saturday night, so Sunday afternoon, after celebrating Mothers Day with our moms, the girls and I were on the road to our two night vacation.
Wildwood was an experience, one that I want to relive over and over again lol. It was definitely a WILD experience (see what I did there?) to say the least, but it was also a bonding experience! I’ve never felt so liberated from responsibilities and reality! It’s been a week since we were there, and I still feel like I left a piece of my mind at the beach house. Fortunately for me, I also brought back a piece of the experience through the pictures I captured, each embellished with a hint of magic and a story. Basically, my friend Steysi and I are lovers of aesthetic and capturing the moment, so after a Rite Aid run with the rest of the girls, she and I wandered off for a photography adventure.. Here are the results!
So May has been full of back to back events! I started off this lovely month with AP exams, three to be exact. May 3rd was my AP Lit exam, followed by APUSH on May 5th, then AP Calc on May 9th. To add an icing on the cake, I took two finals for my Psychology course following the AP Calc exam.. Saying my brain was fried is an understatement lol. But I survived, as I knew I would, and could finally channel my energy to something more positive: PROM! My mom came home from Nigeria the week before, and thankfully, I fell in love with my dress! (I was extremely picky with the fabric that I wanted, and had a nightmare a few nights before my mom returned home of my dress being a disaster lol. (I know.. I’m dramatic!) To continue, I bought my shoes and got my hair done (Deamah slayed my hair y’all!) the night before prom. All in all, ya girl went to bed at 3am, to wake up at 8am.
Now for prom, the weather was the opposite of what I would ever wish on anyone for their prom day! The weather was gloomy and rainy— it could have easily been a buzzkill if I let it! But thankfully I have a positive boyfriend who said, “It’s alright babe, a little rain never killed nobody!” With that said, I couldn’t let the rain kill my shine. As 6pm approached, I realized that we would be late for prom which started at 7pm. Long story short, we arrived fashionably late, and made the night our own! So here, I share with you snippets from an eventful and memorable night!
