Dying to Self

Remember, remember, our previous September?  Well, I do. Even if I did not, “Google Photos Assistant” keeps on making these lovely Albums.  And you? I bet you do not either.  Since, Facebook “Memories” functionality 😉  And with all of these “throwbacks” one can not help but to remember and see how you have changed.  Whether…

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…

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…

Joy

Hi, Loves 💜 I’m sure that I have lost my sense of humor.  Really😐 at least for a good while… My 8-year old daughter came home the other day and said that one of her friends has a great sense of humor.  I asked her if she knows what that means and she replied very…

#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…

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…
