What A Time To Be Alive!

If August 2019 is anything to go by, what a time to be alive! This month has been a beautiful indication how representation matters and when it shows up, it’s celebrated because it brings confidence. This is a feel good post, I hope it melts your heart as much it did mine.

 Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi

A lot of people had lost hope when it comes to beauty pageants, Miss South Africa included. For the longest time beauty pageants seemed to represent a certain perception of beauty and nothing beyond that. This year, the organizers of Miss SA finally heard us and had …

What I Learned From the #90DaysOfGratitude Challenge

I spent the last three months on a #90DaysOfGratitude challenge and WOW! it has been a roller coaster and a half. I had a strong nudge to take on this challenge for spiritual reasons and I knew it wouldn’t be easy but I wasn’t ready for how challenging it would be.

Day 1 – 30; Surrender

When the journey began in May, I took a huge leap of faith and resigned from my job, without a plan. The two month notice was the longest two months because my grandma and spiritual teacher practically begged me to heal from the issues leading to my …

Ocean Dune – Sibaya KZN

The original plan was to take another road trip to Durban with the same gang from this trip. But a crowd of eight turned into six, then four, then three and finally two. The costs of the trip went up but myself and a friend needed the break away from normal life so we were set on going no matter what.

The 14th of February finally came and I don’t think I can ever get used to the fine greenery right after Heidelberg. Everything changes; the air, the atmosphere, the …

Masego Live In SA

After the last minute disappointment from the Flying Fish  #FlavourOdyssey event last year, he finally made it to the South African shores. I got my ticket about 2 months before the event and it came to me as a surprise. I had forgotten about this event and made peace with seeing Masego later on in life. But I was also excited when I saw the invitation.

1 May 2019, we made our way to Sandton, Fourways for what seemed like a private event. I was so impressed that the event was a day event. The proposed time to start and end was 11am – …

I Saw Ed Sheeran – Live

I wasn’t planning to write about this one but that would be selfish of me right…

Firstly, seeing the most popular and cutest Ginger in the world was a pipe dream because the Johannesburg tickets sold out within hours of going on sale. I made peace with not seeing him but the big boss at work ran a competition; asked a few questions and then offered a booster entry if you recorded a video of yourself doing something with Ed Sheeran’s songs. I choose to sing and well, I won! The video is on my Insta stories here.

The 23rd …

Loxion Kulca 20th Anniversary – SAFW

I made it to SAFW after a 2-year hiatus. I was super excited about attending the show; excited to see what had changed, how SAFW made use of their sponsors, the setup  [another blog for another day]…

Nonetheless, I was there for the Loxion Kulca 20 year anniversary show. A while back I wrote I blog post on the Come Back Kids to look out for, brands that I spotted making numerous appearances on social media, well… That blog was no lie. Loxion Kulca has such a rich history and it was a joy to watch how they celebrated their …

My Short Trip to Limpopo

So there I was on a Saturday afternoon with tons to do on my to-do list. I was actually on my way out; dressed and ready to leave the house when my dad suggested we go to Limpopo. I surprisingly said yes and we were off. The plan was to leave on Saturday and come back on Sunday but looking at my luggage bag, you could’ve sworn I was leaving for the week. I pack 4 outfits; just in case it’s cold, just in case it’s hot, just in case it’s very hot and just in case it’s very, very hot.

The Global Citizen Festival – Seeing Beyoncé

The day finally came… The day my sister and I dreamt of for a very long time. Big sis, Beyoncé came to us, but first…

IMG_9347

Getting to the stadium was seamless and easy, we didn’t experience that many road blocks and we easily found a parking spot by the gate. The walk from where we parked to the entrance was the longest ever, but it was worth it was filled with a buzz of excitement and lots of fashion statements. The first …

Flying Fish #FlavourOdyssey

I finally got to see Masego live… Just kidding! I wish.

But how I got tickets to The Flying Fish #FlavourOdyssey Festival was pretty damn cool.

As soon as they dropped the news about Masego coming to SA again, my friend Tebo tagged me on their Tweet and I was obviously beyond myself. I responded directly on Flying Fish’s tweet asking them not to make us “work” for our tickets. They said nothing so I moved on with life.

The Comeback Kids

During my hiatus, I’ve been looking and observing fashion trends. I am in awe.  We live in exciting times. Every trend I’ve ever wanted to explore as a kid but didn’t get the chance to (because mom had the last word with her money), is coming back. From fanny packs, to track suit 2 pieces, and those “Spice Girl” sneakers. Brands are looking at old skool albums and bringing back everything as it is. In fact, when it comes to sneakers, the “uglier” looking, the more in trendier you are. The most exciting part for me is seeing that label I used to wear …
