Hello everyone, I'm sure a lot of people are not happy the holidays are over and it's back to the good old grind. I had a sweet nice time this holiday and Manchester United's 3-2 defeat over Chelsea was the cherry on the already iced cake.
I decided spend the day with my friend Angela after days of cancelling and rescheduling the visit. She told me to pack a swimsuit and swimming cap as the plan was we were going to swim and lounge by the poolside drinking watered down margaritas. Well for people that don't really know me, Bex doesn't get into the pool for anyone. I'm very short-sighted and can't swim with my contact lenses or glasses on can I? I bet if I liked swimming I'd have gotten prescription swimming googles.. Aside from the annoying loss of vision thing there's also the hair thing, now black chicks know what I'm talking about, you don't want to get into that chlorinated water with your one-month-salary worth of extensions now do you?! Swimming caps don't look like they can cover everything IMO.
I decided to wear something in my wardrobe that I haven't worn in ages and I found this jumpsuit that I think I don't wear as often as I should. What I love about it is the fact that it's wide legged and the cream and white contrast is awesome. The bottom bit is black (to make the badonkadonk look smaller and perter) and the upper bit is cream with ruffles and a respectable V-neck which shows just enough cleavage.
I wanted to look casual and allow the jumpsuit be the focal point of the ensemble so I accessorised as minimally as possible with flat gold sandals, a cream chain strap bag and a brown and gold belt.
Angie and I spent the afternoon gisting, laughing and eating. Last week, I cooked a pot of Oha soup that was soooooo delicious that I felt Angie had to sample so I went to hers with a whole bowl of it. Being the foodies that we are, we polished off the whole bowl with two massive plates of Eba in no time (our excuse? We both love cooking and eating African food and cos we are both gluttons).
I left Angie's stuffed and happy. Maybe we'll have have an Okazi or Edikaikong date next weekend......
