A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Blues and Yellows

I have been busy.  Did I hear you say welcome to the world we live in?  Yes, who else hasn't been busy?  These days we are all busy keeping busy. 

In this very competitive world that we live in today, one has to aim for the skies and if one is lucky enough one will fall on the mountain.  Gone are the days when experience took one somewhere.  To get anywhere one has the option of striving hard, working diligently and being the best person that you can be or one can choose to scratch faces and trample on others to get to the top.  

Let's talk about the outfit now which I wore to evening service today.  Can you believe I use to think my favorite color was red? If that is the case how come most of my outfits end up with a touch of blue in them?  Obviously this outfit has more than a touch of blue but blogging has opened my eyes to the fact that I have a thing for the color blue and I wasn't even aware of it.  

Thank you for coming over and reading my blog.  If you like what you've seen, follow me for more and don't be a stranger, leave a comment because I love reading them.  

Outfit Details:

The wind is up to something today
