Hello my beautiful readers

Do you believe in second chances? That people can change and that the universe conspires to let things work in your favor? Imagine living out your day dreams waking up to the realization that your life may not be perfect but the way you wake up feeling happy, the Hope you have for tomorrow make it all seem perfect.

Life is never a straight and narrow road, there are disappointments, heartbreaks, we love and at times we lose ourselves. You were the light at the end of the tunnel, you were my rock when times got tough, you encouraged me to push myself harder, when I felt like I was losing my mind you gripped me tighter and told me everything is going to be alright.

When i stumbled and fell, crawled through the mud you were right there at the end of the mess ready to pick me up and wipe me clean. I sit here day dreaming of how far you have taken me, we would talk about traveling the world together, sharing ideas over a fresh pot of green tea in India. Lazy days falling asleep on hammocks.

Through the brightest of days or the scariest of nights you made me laugh louder and shared in my pain as you watched me cry myself to sleep, I disappointed you several times and every time I would hurt you, but there you were waiting for me to run back.

You told me that I am enough, that I am a promise. When I would ask you what’s next you would laugh and tell me to lean on you and not on my own understanding. I’ve pushed you for answers and threatened to leave if you would not give me what I wanted. I’ve been selfish, scared and anxious. But there was never a time when I felt alone even through the pain you were there, a light, my hope.

My Lord, my Heavenly Father, my hope and my everlasting home, my favorite day dream

About the look:
My dress is from YDE I love how romantic, ethereal and the boho chic twist, I wanted to make it cool and casual and less like I’m wearing a wedding dress.  I paired the dress with sneakers and this cool rustic looking jacked from Forever 21.

Yours in love, peace and happiness

Hello Readers

This is how i feel about my new journey ahead

My season has ended, and so a new one begins. Winter’s old death, turning into spring’s new life. Sleeping flowers awaken, unleashing the beauty that lay dormant.
A bitter chill, to a warm breeze. A wailing howling wind, to the peaceful sounds of birds chirping. Frosts grip loosens and turns to morning dew. Embracing what was once taken for granted.

Life, love and liberty. Life once overlooked, now life looked over. Love once ignored, now love is explored. A prisoner once chained to mind,
Now liberated, my spirit roams free. The new season brings new rules.Not the rules of my old existence, But the rules of universal love. For my love to be true,
My life must be as well.

As it is love’s experience, That emerges from life’s journey.

About the look: The dress is a mix of sexy and sweet and it’s the perfect little floral dress to wear to a wedding or a formal spring occasion, i love dressing up and feeling girly. The dress is from Mr Price and my amazing platform brogues are from my new favorite store the FIX South Africa.

I hope you enjoyed this post

Yours in Peace, Love and Happiness

Hello my lovely readers

The warm African sun makes me think of all the wonderful, warm, tropical destinations in Africa, with my time spent chasing Government stories it leaves me no time to relinquish my itchy feet and seek after adventure.

Today’s blog post was inspired by my love for prints, textures and Africa. I’m sure by now you’re anticipating today’s content of the many adventurous stories so where do we begin?

As I lay here under the guava tree in my back yard, with the sun fading it dawns on me that there are many roads untraveled, so many places to discover, adventures to seek and stories to be told. I dream of destinations that give me the opportunity to travel far and wide using various modes of transport. I’ve dreamed of quad biking through the Namib Desert, driving through the Serengeti in Kenya and experiencing the best African wildlife has to offer. Riding a camel and learning about Egyptian history or prowling through the many spice filled markets and feasting on various Moroccan treats on offer.

Spying and watching the beauty of the Gorillas that can be found in the Congo’s Amazon Forrest’s, walking the many long, beautiful and clean coastal lines that can be found in Mozambique, Ghana, Mombasa, South Africa and many others. There’s no place I would much rather prefer to discover then all the beauty, secrets and stories Africa has to offer.

My outfit would be perfect for the many destinations I plan of traveling the clash of prints represent the diversity and cultures that Africa has to offer.

Do you have any interesting travel stories? I would love to hear from you.

Peace. Love. God

Hello Readers

Sorry for the silence when life gets hectically busy I tend to lose focus and neglect your passions which for me amongst other things is blogging. So my style crush for this week has to be Yaya DaCosta, I mean look at all that hair, the colourful pieces and the fierce poses ohhh girl. She got me snapping my finger as well. She’s posing like the rent is due tomorrow.

What iconic musician does she remind you off? My pick would be Diana Ross

I first caught sight of Yaya from that TV show called Americas Next Top Model (ANTM) after she left the show she blossomed and became a well know face in the natural hair community with various images of her and her afro all over social networks.

She also caused what the media would label as “controversy” when she posed pictures of herself breast feeding her new born baby. Now if you ask there’s nothing controversial about feeding your baby I mean she/he has got to eat right? My opinion.

Back to the editorial these are the kind of images that you can stick up in an art gallery, hotel, restaurant or my future walk in closet (a girl has got to dream right?) the eclectic and colorful background really being out the texture and print in the clothing. When I see these images I instantly thing of Solange Knowles and how she could literally pull off anyone of these looks.

I’m inspired to go bolder and bolder with my fabric and colour choices next time I go shopping or thrifting, I hate boring clothing and this editorial reminds how life is too short to wear beige head to toe (my opinion).

Peace. Love. Happiness

God Bless
