Spending time together as a family is important for building strong family ties, making lifelong memories and creating an environment that builds self-esteem and character in children.
When asked, children say the number one thing they want most from their parents is time. Unfortunately, due to the busy schedules of most parents in their bid to provide financially for the home, this doesn’t happen very often. This is what we sought out to change on the Make Me Fabulous Show!
Mr Oreniyi works in a telecommunication company and his job often takes him away on long trips away from home. As a result of this, his family hardly gets to spend quality time with him and they were in desperate need of a fabulous treat. He reached out to me when we called for entries for the Family Edition of the show and we were so glad to host them.
They had a fabulous time at the Federal Palace Hotel & Casino where they were lodged. They got to swim, play golf and tennis and have a lovely outdoor dinner. Shopping for the entire family was done at the Maxx Store, while Mrs Oreniyi got herself a fab makeover from a stellar team: Hair by Nancy of Davnans Hair Salon, Makeover by Bimpe Onakoya and Styling by Yummie.
Check out some photos of their fabulous treat:
First, we got to meet Mr & Mrs Orekoya at their home.
… and their beautiful kids. This was our first time having an entire family on the show, so we were prepared for some fun!
Of course, we had to ride in style again… in a Porsche!
The kids look real cozy inside the car, don’t they?
With smiles and high expectations, the Oreniyi’s arrive at the Federal Palace Hotel and Casino, VI, Lagos.

After settling into their double family suite, their smiles are already much wider! But their day is just beginning…
… but before stepping out, they have a sumptuous lunch at the hotel. Hmmm… yummy!
The Oreniyi’s meet up with Celebrity Stylist Yummie at the Maxx store to pick up some clothes for the day.
Time for some shopping!!!
With the shopping done, we whisk Mrs Oreniyi away go get her hair done…
…while the rest of the family returns to the hotel for some more fun.
starting with some video games.
After getting her hair done, Mrs Oreniyi joins the family again for some swimming. I love how happy they look together and the matching colours of their swimming gear!
For the kids, this was their first time in a swimming pool and they were super excited!
What an interesting day that was! But the fun isn’t over yet. Time for a family dinner.
For this lovely family, we wanted to give them the complete holiday package with a Hawaiian-themed outdoor dinner and the lovely grounds of the hotel provided the perfect ambience for that.
See the magic Celebrity Hair Stylist Nancy and Professional Makeup Artist Bimpe Onakoya have done on Mrs Oreniyi. Can’t wait till her hubby sees her!!
Aww… so sweet. See their happy smiles.
The Oreniyi’s settle down for a special dinner…
…but they have no idea we have more surprises for them.
A mosquito repellent Air Conditioner from LG, a N50,000 gift card from Maxx and some gifts for the kids!
I loved putting smiles on the faces of the Oreniyi’s with a fabulous treat that helped make their marriage even stronger.
And the kids were so full of energy, I loved having them on the show!
