Back in May, the 37th State team for Haute TV came out for some fun hard work in the unmerciful sun to capture on film the FAB team at work producing the ‘La Isla Lagos’ beach editorial. Though we did not have time to basque in the sun or go for a dip, the shoot was a lot of fun with with a lot of tasty chops courtesy of  Ribs and Sauces. We also go to work against the backdrop of some local folk music and were treated nicely by the Takwa Bay residence, except when some individuals tried to obtain from us. Without falling off any cliffs or having our boat capside on route to and from the beach, thanks to a brilliant team and all the amazing designers our gorgeous model Nwando Ebeledike rocked who is now Miss La Casera, the shoot was nothing short of FABulous.
