The New Year kicked off with a bang and if this week is anything to go by, 2015 is going to be great! I wanted to ‘take it easy’ the first week back at work, but alas – that plan …

Looking back

It’s that time of the year where everyone is getting ready to celebrate the year that was and the new year ahead of us. 2014 has been good – even with all of its ups and downs. I believe these …

Holiday living

Holiday living

I love summer…especially now that we’re on leave and the days are our own to do whatever we want to do. No early morning alarm that needs to be set, no sitting in traffic to get to the office (Pieter, …

Counting down

Counting down

One more day…just one more day then it’s officially holiday! Well, for some of us. I’m ‘closing’ Twenty3Media tomorrow (Friday) for a couple of weeks over the festive season – but if you work for yourself, you’re never really off …

Time is flying by

Time is flying by

I don’t know about you, but to me it feels like the last few weeks of 2014 is literally flying by. That being said, I’m definitely looking forward to the December holiday and long lazy days filled with reading, naps …

The little black dress

The little black dress

This is one of my favourite dresses, especially over the last few months. I’ve picked up weight, but this dress is very forgiving. I bought it at Stuttafords a year or so ago for an event and I love the …

Everything is not black and white

Everything is not black and white

It’s been a rough couple of days. Work-wise I’m very busy as I’m trying to prepare for an upcoming trip – I want to work as little as possible while away and that means getting things done now. Besides a …

Edgy summer perfection

Edgy summer perfection

This is not an outfit I would normally wear but I have to say, the crop top trend is growing on me. BUT – it’s not a very forgiving trend…time to start doing those sit-ups and crunches! Cape Town teased …

Soft and floaty

Soft and floaty

The photo session for this specific look post is definitely one of my favourites that I’ve done with Bianca so far. I bought this skirt from Mr Price a while ago but never had the chance to wear it. A …

New York glam

New York glam

It’s Monday morning and I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself. Not just because the weekend is over (that too) but because I’m sick in bed today. Only a few days ago I was saying how I *rarely* get sick and …

Time to take it up a notch

Time to take it up a notch

I don’t know if it’s only me that feels this way, but this year is LITERALLY flying by. I haven’t been blogging as much as I’d like but I’m planning on changing that. I partnered with Bianca Asher (who is …

Memories of Milan | #ShareTheLove

Whenever I wear this skirt I think of Milan, lots of walking, endless exploring and tiramisu…such great memories! A couple of years ago when my Mom, sister and I visited Italy I bought this skirt at Zara in Milan. This …

Brightening up winter | #ShareTheLove

Brightening up winter | #ShareTheLove

My winter wardrobe is filled with loads of dark colours – in other words, it’s pretty dull in general. When I spotted this bright neon yellow jersey at Edgars I knew I had to have it. It adds that pop …

I have been very quiet on the blogging front lately but I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. We arrived back in Cape Town last week after a fun holiday in Namibia. Catching up with work …
