ACTIVE

ACTIVE

Just because I’m working out, it doesn’t mean I want to feel worse about how I look. Moving your body is a great way to show yourself some love, so why would you kill your mood, your spirit and your motivation with ratty, tatty and just plain unflattering workout wear? Cute workout clothes are an investment and more than that, they are a absolute necessity! With so many stylish options out there, like the latest Forever New Activewear, you’ll not only be motivated to move more, but you’ll love doing it too!

Autumn Transitions

Autumn Transitions

Autumn is by far, my favourite season of the year! It’s not too hot, nor too cold so you basically get the best of both worlds. Sunshine all day and nights where you can cozy up under a warm and fluffy blankie and watch Netflix. It’s the best!

Angelic Engelsrufer

Angelic Engelsrufer

When I was younger, I wanted to have stuff. Lots and lots of stuff! Cupboards full of clothes, shoes and handbags -in every style and colour- and a jewellery collection that was overflowing like Ali Baba’s Cave. The older wiser I got, the more I realised it’s not about having more, but rather about collecting beautiful pieces slowly, so that I can surround myself with the things that I love! When it comes to my jewellery collection now, I have a smaller, but far more beautiful collection than ever, and each piece makes me feel special in its own way. I am by no means a dainty girl -or a dress girl for that matter- but my angelic Engelsrufer Ceramic Wing and Soundball Pendant has made me want to explore this side of my personality – and I do love it! It’s got that whole boho vibe going on, but more on the free spirited, dream catcher side than the pattern crazy bohemain. Like my ombre hair, the boho trend will never be over for me!

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Jacarandas in Cullinan

Going to see the Jacarandas in full bloom in Cullinan has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages. Last year, we attempted to go and see them, but I think we might have been a bit too late as they had already finished blooming in November. This year though, I wasn’t about to let them get away from me.

It’s So Fluffy!

It’s So Fluffy!

The trick with getting through the cold winter months, is having the right gear! I thought my winter wardrobe was pretty well curated, until I discovered that it was missing the ultimate winter must have – a fluffy, warm and totally gorgeous beanie!

Winter Classics

Winter Classics

My love for trenches continues! A trench is such a classic piece. It works all year round, no matter the season. I love the structured, almost military silhouette of this one I bought at ZARA recently. It always makes me feel polished and pulled together. My Perfect winter outfit! And what’s winter without a Starbucks Vanilla Bean Macchiato?! I swear, every time I’m at Mall of Africa, I just can’t resist my little Starbucks fix! I’m obsessed!

My Everything Little Black Sweater

My Everything Little Black Sweater

I love, love, love cozy sweaters. In winter, there’s nothing better than wrapping up in a soft, fluffy sweater that feels as comfortable as your favourite blanket and keeps you warm. But there are sweaters, and then there are sweaters! Earlier this year, I hit up the Country Road sale and scored some amazing knitted sweaters for winter. It was then that I realised how beautiful they were and now, I only want to buy my knitted sweaters from Country Road. Why you may ask?

Dream Team

Dream Team

I heart my bed! I really do! And I love my sleep! Back when we were dating, my hubby used to call me “the sleeping machine”. He just couldn’t understand how I could sleep so much. If sleeping was a sport (then), I’d have more than a few shiny medals to boast. Nowadays, sleep is a luxury! With so much on the go all the time, it’s difficult to get in my zzz’s, but now that the temps are dropping, all I want to do is cozy up at home and stay in my PJ’s all day long! Which is why weekends are reserved for cute PJ’s, cozy blankets, lots of tea and Nutella Hot Chocolate, watching movies and sleepy time.
