Food and Style with an African Twist

Black, White and a Dash of Colour

This weekend has been quite a busy one.  We were up late on Saturday, because we had a few friends over, and the time flew by so quickly, yes we had a great time, fantastic company, lots of food obviously ( I don't drink alcohol so I compensate with the food). I woke up early on Sunday as we had been invited to a double baby dedication and after service refreshments. (Say food, and am in, head first, haha).

Oh by the way, this is actually an outfit post, so let's talk about the outfit, which I wore to the baby dedication.  Well, they say if you find something that works for you, stick to it, that is why I buy a lot of my things from Jacqui-e.(This is by no means an advert for Jacqui-e) but I just feel comfortable in their clothes.

This week I am linking up to Visible Monday, and Trend Spin Linkup so spare a minute of your time and go over, you will be amazed and inspired.

Thank you for visiting and reading my blog, your effort is much appreciated.
