In today’s episode of parking lot fashion… Ok Aunties & Uncles, I am really sorry for the car background but I gotta work with what I got! Haha… Trust me, it’ll get better 🙂 I took George (my mummy) to the mall and swindled her to some shooting time. Loving this mint cropped knit from Zara that I scored for $17!!! My necklace was on sale for $20 and it was buy one get on free! The jeans are oldies but I remixed it by creating some knee rips with scissors. And these pastel pumps are a new fave from Aldo! Love to All!

      Thank you! Sooo… I don’t actually have any biological neices and nephews BUT I’ve always wanted to be an Aunty as a young child. When my cousin gave birth to my “neice,” I told her to call me Aunty Christina lol…and as other cousins (which are like brothers and sisters in my culture) continued to have children, I continued to gain more neices and nephews. Also, in my culture, calling one Aunty/Uncle is a sign of respect for anyone significantly older than you and close to your parents. I wanted to carry that respect to my blog. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with calling me by my first name, Christina, adding Aunty before it illustrates the respect I have for myself and want others to have for me.

      And the last lil spiel,Ghanaians love to nickname people. So although my name is Christina, I’ve been jokingly called Auntie Christie… you have to just hear it aloud to laugh… lol

      All in all… you can call me Christina, hahaha

        Hahaha oh wow, that’s a lot! I always chuckle whenever I see someone call you that and I’m just like huh?! So I had to ask! Thanks for the detailed description! In my culture, calling some significantly older than you “Aunty” (Tati or Matante) or Uncle (Tonton) shows signs of respect, too! I love how you brought it out into your blog. The reasoning is deep!
