A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist


Hello beautiful people.  Last month I attended a memorial service for a friend's mum and this is what I wore.  After the service, we all went to his house for lunch and watched a DVD of tributes put together by her children and friends.

Beautiful stories of her achievements and generosity were told. They also spoke of her witty sense of humor.   All what I heard led me to believe that she lived a good life, which is worth celebrating.

Thank so much for visiting and reading my blog. Hope you like the outfit and don't be a stranger, leave a comment.  Have a lovely week!!!
