A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Navy Orange and White Viscose Skirt and Top

Well helloooooooo TCW readers, how are we all doing?  Look who's back from her blogging hiatus! Guys, sorry for being away for so long but I had to turn my focus on other things that needed more of my time and you guys know blogging can be so needy and clingy it's not even funny.

Anywho, while I was away, I started a new job, yay and spent some quality time with the boys (kids will always need their mama, no matter how old they are)  and trained myself to switch off social media.  Still can't believe it's been two months since my last post and apart from a few sporadic posts on Insta, that was it and it felt good.  Now that I am back, I will make sure I come over to your blogs for a visit to cheer you on as you kick goals.  

Okay, so this outfit that I am rocking today is a gift from my sister chosen by my nephew.  My sister said they were out shopping for him and he thought this skirt and top would look nice on me so he asked his mum to get it for me for Christmas.  What a nice gentleman he has grown up into. Really proud of the boy.  Who wouldn't be?  After all he is advocating for me.  He sure is in my corner. Doing my favorite aunt dance as I type 💃💃.  I have style it with white flatforms , white purse and orange drop earrings. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, let me know you were here by leaving a message in the comments box and I will return your visit.  Enjoy the rest of your week and see you soon. xo
