THIRTY ONE in black


It’s my birthday today, yay! How quick time flies.  I am celebrating my  31st  birthday  today in black outfit,  so I  thought it would be perfect to share to you 31 blessings I am most thankful for.    I am blessed with a million and one reasons but I suppose it would be rather fit to share 31 as I celebrate my 31st

Before spilling out 31 of my most valuable blessings, I would like to talk about my birthday outfit first.  If you browse through the length of my blog and leaf through my old style posts, I have mentioned and flaunted a ton of monochromatic looks such as an all-black outfit, if not around 2 or 3 looks.  You see, I find it rather odd to say that identifying colours is one of my weaknesses, but it sure is.  And so, black is my favourite because it is such a versatile colour that pairing it with almost any sort would not be such a worry.
