SA Fashion Week

  Every Fashion lover’s dream is to be front row and centre of Fashion week. I attended three shows, being Rubicon, Floyd Avenue and Palse. I had fun on both nights. A little over rated if your expectations are too high, which I think mine were. However it’s a great time to engage and network […]

Date Night

  Found this perfect little dress at H&M the other day, I love this colour. Just perfect for the upcoming Spring season. It’s also a perfect date night dress. You can even pair this dress with some nude/black pumps for your night out. In hindsight this dress was not my ideal length, a little racy […]

And so it begins… A N G A L I A

  Everyday has felt like women’s day to me lately. Woman’s day commemorates the strong woman who took matters into their own hands and marched to the union buildings to petition against the country’s pass laws, an incredible feat which we today celebrate only on one day. I say it has felt like woman day […]

Denim

I bit off a friends head off the other day when she said to me I take long gaps in between blog posts, She was right. However in my defence I have been really busy working on another project which required me to give it my 150% attention, I know its not a good enough […]

Looking through God’s window

It took me forever to post about our trip to Mpumalanga. Zethu and I traveled there a few weeks back. The drive to Mpumalanga took us four and a half hours from Jo’burg.  I hate long drives but this was not too bad considering the beautiful scenic views we saw on our way there. This […]

Military Base

A quick look of what I had the other day. I was feeling 100 when these pictures were taken. The MAC “Runway hit” matte lippie seemed to be a great idea at the time, until I saw these pictures. So I quickly dashed to the car to go change to one of my favourites “heroine” […]

Focus

In my very first post I quoted Zethu saying, “if you point the gun you must have an intention to shoot” and I’ve been reminding myself of this constantly, not only to shoot but to aim and hit the target. I will most likely miss a couple of times,  it will take time. However I […]

Imperfection

“You need to try not to vocalise the things that bother you because then you perpetuate them even further. Focus on the good, focus on what feels good. Concentrate on what is good to you, concentrate on what nourishes your soul” – Said a very good friend of mine. I have been told all I […]

Textures

On this Sunday, My boyfriend and I went around driving again looking for the perfect spot to take these pictures. We landed right in the heart of Brixton. As you will see by the pictures I chose, we took them at different locations in Brixton. I loved all the different textures this place had to […]

Maasai beauty

Owning a piece of African jewelry is more than just that. It’s possessing a world of culture and history in its own beautiful form. Even though there is history and meaning behind each piece, it’s the art in the jewelry that grabs the attention of most collectors just like myself. I got this beautifully crafted […]

African Crown

By now you’re probably thinking, “her head is always covered, my gully”. Well with time you’ll see that I love to cover my head. If it’s not a dramatic hat, it’ll be an African style head-wrap, just like a queen owning her throne. You’ll also see that my favourite colour is black. On this particular […]

Extraordinarily ordinary

  I am a dresses kinda girl. I like the easiness of throwing a one piece outfit on and a ready-to-go kinda look, I work in a corporate environment and since I’m not a morning person , putting on a dress in the morning is an easy, simple yet sophisticated outfit, but that’s a post […]
