Wine and Dine

Hey Loves!


Last weekend while visiting South Florida, my friend Krystle and I went to Schnebly Redland's Winery in Homestead, FL.

We had a wonderful evening of wine tasting!  I often enjoy a nice, chilled glass of wine and I have my favorites, but I have to admit that the wine I tasted here was by far the best I've ever had!
Photobucket
Here's what I was wearing.  Yep, you've seen it before here

The winery was so nice and I am looking forward to going back when I visit Krystle again.  Speaking of Krystle, she is the friend I told you all about who made all of the fabulous food for Bernie's Bachelorette breakfast!  Click here to see that post.

We had a great time at the winery and decided to buy a bottle and go back to the house for dinner since she is such a fab cook!
Photobucket
The wine we purchased was called Category 3 Hurricane and it was a red wine with accents of guava and cherries and OMG I have never tasted a wine so delicious ever!!! LOL!

For dinner we indulged in some Beef Teriyaki, courtesy of Krystle's kitchen!

A great end to a great evening with a great friend!
Talk to you guys later!  Enjoy the weekend!

Bridal Shower Surprise

Hi Guys!


Over Spring Break I surprised one of my besties for her Bridal Shower.  She didn't think I was going to be able to make it so it was a great surprise.
Photobucket



Her shower was at the Grand Luxe Cafe in Boca Raton, FL.  I ate there in Vegas so I knew the food would be great.  Click here to see that post.

Photobucket

Here is what I was wearing:

Photobucket
It looks like a dress but it'ssssss nooottttttt!
Photobucket
I am so in love with jumpers this year!  They are so comfy and stylish! I bought this one from Forever 21.  The print and wide legs puts me in a retro state of mind.  It looks like an outfit that would've been around in the 70's.  What do you think?

Photobucket
Here is me and my girl, Renee! She really was surprised!

Photobucket
She is quite the fashionista herself!  Look at how gorgeous this dress is!!!!

Photobucket
So I would be remiss if I didn't show you the food.  I couldn't get a picture of everyone's food but I took pictures of my plate and 2 others.  Here goes:

LOADED QUESADILLAS
This was my dish and they were DELISH!!!

COBB SALAD

THAI LETTUCE WRAPS
My friend Rose had these lettuce wraps and I was NOT a fan!  I think it was the sauce they ruined it for me.
Photobucket

RED VELVET CHEESECAKE
I am not the hugest fan of cheesecake, but this red velvet cheesecake will make you wanna slap somebody! LOL!  It was so freggin' good!

I really enjoyed the shower and getting to see my girl Renee!  Her wedding is on my birthday so you know there will be lots of pictures to come!

It's Hump-Day so you know the weekend will be here before you know it! 
Talk to you all soon.

So did any of you have Spring Break last week too?  I went down to South Florida to visit friends and this is what gas cost in Boca Raton, Florida!!!!

CRAZY RIGHT!?!?!?!? I spent over $150 on gas alone! Oh if gas could only be $0.99 again.

Have a great week!  I'll be back tomorrow!

Work OOTD: Work Appropriate :)

Hey Lovelies and welcome to all of my new followers!!!

I pray that everyone has had a wonderful week thus far!  I'm back from Tampa and have to say that I fell in love with that city!  It is beautiful, there's so much to do, and my favorite stores are there.  Needless to say, it was tough having to come home.  While there I met Genelle from What's More Important than Fashion and she was an absolute doll!  We did a little shopping at H&M.  I wanted to do a lot more shopping but I'm really trying to stick to not spending too much on clothing until summer.  I used my H&M gift card (and a little more) but cheated and bought a pair of shoes at MJM..........well two pairs. :) We also chit chatted about being in Tallahassee at the same time during college.  She was at FAMU and I was at FSU!  Small world! I love meeting my fellow blogger buddies! 

Anywho, here is my work OOTD. 

Photobucket
I love wearing this dress during the spring and summer.  I had to add a shirt underneath and a sweater to make it work appropriate. 
Photobucket
I love the length of the dress and the detailing at the waist.

Photobucket 
I bought this dress two summers ago from Marshall's I believe and the sweater and flat sandals are from Ross.

Photobucket
The earrings are from Beall's Outlet.


Photobucket
 Tomorrow is Friday and the weekend begins!!!  Spring Break is next week for me and I am so excited for the week off from work!
Have a great day dolls!

European Street Cafe

Hey Dolls,

 European Street Cafe bring me back to my childhood when I lived in Germany!  This is a cute little cafe that some co-workers and I went to for lunch after a workshop last month.

This place is so cute, resembles a cottage!
They specialize in soups and salads but you can also find all sorts of pastries, cookies,  and other sugary treats!

 I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and gumbo.
Although, this isn't the traditional type of gumbo that I'm used to eating, it was very flavorful!
One of my co-workers had the Steak Dip sandwich with Au-jus.  It was loaded with meat and she said it was quite good.
 Another co-worker had a salad.  I forgot what type it was but hey it looked good. :)
One of my co-workers was very serious about sticking to her point system for WeightWatchers and got a turkey pita sandwich.  She said it lacked in flavor terribly! LOL!  If I had to guess on appearance alone, I'd say the same.
I've been to European Street several times and the food is always very good.  My favorite sandwich from there is The Princess which is a chicken breast, bacon, provolone, lettuce, and tomato on a croissant!  Delicious!  Though I have never tried it, I've heard great things about the Beer Cheese soup.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
XOXO

A Lesson On Kente Cloth

Hey Dolls,


Im so happy that I found a background that looks nicer that the inside walls of my school to take pictures!  It's definitely allowing me to be more consistent with my posts!  Here is my work OOTD!  I love the top because it reminds me of Kente Cloth.
Photobucket
Please note that this top is definitely NOT Kente Cloth.  It just reminds me of it.  For those of you wanting to know what authentic Kente Cloth looks like, here is a picture below

kentetwist.files.wordpress.com
Here's a little history behind this beautiful handwoven cloth that originates from Africa.  Though the cloth is accessible to many now due to the use of printing machines, it was originally reserved for  royalty and only worn during special events and sacred ceremonies.  As a matter of fact the authentic form of the cloth is still regarded as a symbol of social prestige and nobility.
Photobucket
I FELL IN LOVE with these AFRO EARRINGS the moment I first saw them.  Aren't they the cutest thing?  I bought them and the received the green bracelet as a gift, from Unique Boutique online.

Photobucket
The top and pants are from Ross and I rocked the outfit with Luichiny strappy sandals I bought via MJM Designer shoes.  Hope you like!

Talk to you all soon!
