To celebrate our 1 year blogger-versary and the launch of our online store, we gathered together our dearly beloved for an afternoon of food, fashion and good vibes. It's been an amazing year so far so we had much to celebrate- not that we need much of an excuse to party. Pulling it together wasn't easy, and the week before felt a bit like an episode of a reality show when everything looks crazy, everyone is breaking down, and you're not sure if they'll make it even though deep down you know they will because its TV. But this wasn't TV.

Panic!

Panic!

But it all came together beautifully. The TAMU cupcakes and Zoe's Ghana Kitchen arrived to feed the hungry looking masses who came to join in the fun. 

Cupcakes from Tamu- the best you'll ever have!

The fabulous Nailwraps:Influence were in the house doing free nail art of some inspirational African women which went down so well they ran out before we could get some!

We also put together a fashion exhibition of some of the designers we are selling through our online boutique. South African designer Sindisio Khumalo's graphic laden SS13 collection was on show, as well as Choolips and Chichia London's AW13 collections, all of which are produced on the continent, proving that African fashion isn't all about ankara. Head over to the boutique to see for yourself!
