I recently came across an Instagram account that I wish I'd created called Black Girls Love Pink. That's so right up my alley, not because I'm a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated but because I truly love the color pink. It's pretty, it's preppy, and it's simply perfect in every shade! The best thing about pink is that it totally compliments brown skin in clothes and in make up. As long as you find the good tones & undertones for your complexion. Ladies...I don't want to hear any of that, "you can wear pink cause you're lighter complected." That's just not true.

We had the pleasure of attending the baptism of my husband's Godson this day and blush pink was the perfect pairing.
I live in the country but I'm a city girl through and through. And the great thing about DC is that it's clean and very much a manageable city. In the summertime especially, I make dates with the city. I like to combine the joy of eating with my interest for exploring the city. On this day, my family and I hung out at The Yards and had brunch at Due South.
Where we live in Anne Arundel County Maryland is right near the water. So on this day we decided to venture into the city and spend the day on the water. There were festivals, food samplings, miniature golf, fun giveaways, etc.
We opted for a savory southern & gulf coast inspired brunch at Due South.
I chose shrimp & grits topped with sunny side up eggs and refreshing blueberry lemonade with blueberry vodka as the main attraction. Can I just say it was all delicious!! I loved every bite of my food and the drink was cool, yummy, and struck just the right balance.
If you're in DC I highly recommend dazzling your tastebuds with Due South's culinary delights.
