Leather Jacket

MOP_8371

Obviously one cannot get through winter without at least one leather jacket. I’ll go as far as to say one can’t get through life without it. I had been looking around for a biker style jacket since the chill set in and when I saw this Only and Sons baby on Superbalist it was love at first sight. (I could have made a lame pun there about “love at first site” but I have changed.)

My Dream Coat This Winter

DSC_4853 DSC_4812

I am completely and utterly besotted with this coat! I wish I could where it everywhere I go like one of those toddlers that won’t let go of an item of clothing. I can’t tell you enough about why it’s so right for my life because I wouldn’t know where to start – the colour, the length the fact that it’s sleeveless. Sweet poodles, it’s perfect!

I love this colour!

At the moment it’s on my nails, my lips, my IG grid – everydamnwhere. I’m one of those favourite-colour-phase people. I don’t have a favourite colour that my friends could bank on in a gameshow, I have phases of colour obsession, you know?

IMG_9368

 

After watching this Ted Talk about 30 Day Challenges I decided what better way to kick off the year than to embark on my own challenge, fitness. When I say I decided I mean that Mukondi decided for us. We set off the very next day so as not to procrastinate or wait for Monday (which I’ve learnt is like the gateway drug of procrastination). The challenge was quite simply to run 5km every single day for 30 days. We would track our distance and pace using the Nike Plus app. Easy right? Nope. Here are a few things I learnt through this challenge:

Flowers At Work

Quick one. Last week I had a really hectic presentation at work and I wasn’t feeling myself so I turned to flowers to  pep myself up and own that day. Lately I’m on my •Vuka•Ugheze•Ubangene steez.

ComPleat


Summer is in full swing so for once I don’t have to defend my choice in girly colours. I’m in pink! (Or salmon to the colour snobs) This is my absolute favourite skirt mainly because when I’m in I feel like my mother – feminine and confident.

Naked Coffee: My New Fav Coffice

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

I suppose one could say that this is an incidental post. I definitely didn’t set out to visit a coffee shop today let alone write a blog post about one. But that’s the thing about blogging, once the itch kicks off, there is no stopping it.
