Hi my friends,
Its winter and I’m trying everything not to get the flu because who can afford to be sick right? I try and get as much defense from my diet as possible and I find that smoothies/juices are the easiest way to pack all that nutrition into one compact meal. Here is a recipe for a vitamin C packed immune system boosting one that I love. What I love most about this mean medley is the acai berry action that I snuck in. Read more about the benefits of acai berries here. See recipe below. 🙂
Looking around for affordable ways to keep warm this season. Is it just me or is this year colder? Maybe I’m just older…I digress. My goal is to have enough other wear to pair with a few items that I already own so as not to break the little bank.
The look I’m featuring today is a feline twist on the classic white shirt. The cat collar shirt I’m wearing is from Choies. I love it wholeheartedly and the best part is that I got this on sale. The benefit of being a season behind the rest of the fashion world is that we get the winter clearance goodies from abroad in time for our chilly season. I’ve paired this with a long cardi from H&M. They have a decent range of warm goodies at a good price. Full outfit details below:
This is a quick in and out post, my friends. I just wanted to share this nifty find I copped at H&M that I am currently living in. I love this green camper jacket for autumn and winter this year. I love the versatility of it, it’s like an instant “I have this under control” cover. I’ll try a share a few more of the outerwear pieces I picked up recently…winter is coming!
I’m fortunate enough to be the annual fashion week plus one of my friend and business partner, Mukondi. Every season we go out to see the dazzling designs of none other than Rubicon! I have to tell you dressing to go and look at fashion is a really intimidating thing. Where does one start with an outfit for an evening of looking at outfits?
The theme is also pretty confusing if you’re me because I always have a million possible interpretations of something at any given time (blame it on the right brain). This year the theme was No Colour…you see how never-ending the possibilities are? Is it black, white, “nude”, brown, something sheer, or no colour limitations? Anyway, I wore pink. 🙂 Let’s chat about that rationale in person over a large bottle of wine.
I’m sitting by a window at my grandparents’ place listening to the rain and I can only think of three words when I decide to write this post. Those three words are “what a year”. I have cooked, made the last of the Christmas decorations with my siblings and this is a moment for me to introspect. Oh no! It’s my birthday and after all the laughing, cake eating and teary speeches I now have a moment to myself. This is a terrible thing because this solitary moment happens every year and the same old water works come rushing in as a result. Perhaps it’ll help if I give you some background.
Here’s a really nifty trick I learned from my sister. Using our very own South African Rooibos Tea to calm my skin. Last week I had a crazy rash all over my face practically out of the blue. I looked the one moment and there it was, all over me like a… well like a bad rash as they say. I audited my diet for the days leading up to this and came up with nothing new so I still have no clue what caused it but luckily I now know how to get rid of it.
Pictured in the above image is a woman simultaneously in a moment of sheer bliss and ferocious attack. I can’t really explain why but me and bun bao are the greatest of friends. I’m no food aficionado but I can testify having had a taste-gasm during my recent visit to Momo Baohaus.
True to the title of this post, I’d like to be short and sweet. This look is my favourite summer ensemble, the playful neckpiece from Lovisa being the hero piece. I bought these denim shorts from MRP about four years ago after seeing Beyonce in a similar pair looking godly. (Not embarrassing at all, we must all do as the queen does). What I love most about denim is that it lives forever.
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?
