Up-cycling

Hello, June Initially, this was gonna be my first fashion blog post (teehehhehe) but life gave this read a whole other meaning (yet again)these past few months. I have always been fascinated with the mythology of the Phoenix.  The saying:  “…like a phoenix rising from the ashes…” – I could always identify with, as I am…

Skin Deep

Basic. The word to describe 2018 thus far, for me, at least.  In short, I wanted this year to be laid-back, predictable and intentional – FOCUSED.  I got most of what I WANTED, but life served me what I NEEDED, as usual. This blog was supposed to be all about my radiant skin, which I…

Coils to Curls

Today I will attempt to assist us in something that most girls want – Beautiful Curls.  The whole concept started when we were brainstorming Misfit’s  Latest Shoot with Jetaime’s Photography.  I have to admit that I have had many failed attempts at going “natural” 😉 .  Natural in our community means – embracing your natural…

SUPPORT SYSTEM

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a Christine Caine quote: “The only Love Language is: Die to self.”. It took me back to the book I read, about 9 years ago – Gary Chapman’s ; The 5 Love Languages.  This book taught me a great deal about how to love and to adjust my expectations thereof….

The Leather Skirt

This simple piece of garment became the symbol of my emancipation.  Previously, I would never have selected this piece for my wardrobe but when I fitted it on, something just clicked. This piece of clothing actually expressed how I felt. I felt: free, happy, grateful and not scared to live, anymore. I had a lot…

Press ON

People keep on asking me: how did you do it? Losing weight.  Being happy.  Sending out positive vibes.  The answer is quite easy: in the pursuit of a relationship with God, the latter fell in place. But…Let me try and give you a more worldly answer, as the elderly would put it. 😉 These steps…

#Summer17

“This Summer is almost on it’s back” (loosely translated from Afrikaans), as old folk would say. 🙂 And it saddens me a lot because I am not one for winters.  The Sun and I are really tight, you know. 🙂 We have this thing going on – where he gives me Vitamin D/Rays and I…

Geloof is Vertroue/Faith is Confidence

Loves, Liefies, Loves, ek kan nie my opgewondenheid inhou om 2017 saam met julle af te sluit nie. Ek het so baie van my lewe gedeel met julle die afgelope jaar en net met die groot hoop dat ek ten minste, een van julle laat lag en/of ietsie mee kon help… The Festive were filled…

Proudly African

The past two years I have been working on ticking off a few things on my Bucket list.  I have  consciously decided to get to know South Africa before I get acquainted  with the rest of Africa, and then obviously abroad. It all started when I had to teach a subject that covers a lot about the…

Black x White x Grey

Okay, Loves. So, today I might be going a bit deeper than usual, but as a Parent and Child I thought let’s do this.  My Mom will appreciate the fact that she has written proof that she’s right and some other parents might feel better about the their parenting, even if they feel like they…

Bucketlist Pt.3 – Moving to the Coast

When I were in Grade 7, my mom and I had “the talk” about the future.  It wasn’t the first time we had this one, but it was quit crucial for our well being.  It was a period in our lives that we needed to re adjust our life vision and goals, as we have…

Bucketlist ~ Part 2

Have any of you watched the series, Black Mirror? If you had, you would know of the episode in Season 2 where everyone had a device implanted, that records all that they view and it is saved as neatly filed and organized memories. They can re-view, rewind, delete these “parts of memory” and they could…

Bucket lists – Part 1

Bucket list – the list one supposedly make before you kick the proverbial bucket.  I never had the need for one, up until 3 years ago when I discovered that I was taking life way too seriously.  It started small, by just committing to incorporating more fun in my life. But never did it occur…
