Breath Of Blue

At the beginning of this year I vowed to go back to doing all the things I love, and one of them is working with fellow creatives to make life more colourful. So I called up two of my favourite people in the industry for a photoshoot, and spoke to up-and-coming designer Janu Steyn about wearing one of his gowns. He gave me the most breathtaking royal blue gown with intricate detail across the chest and a line of buttons down the back. Zel Archer came onboard as photographer, and Cat Terblanche as hair-and-makeup artist. I’ve worked with them a lot in the past and I absolutely love their dynamic. They’re some of the kindest people I know, and together their presence is...

An Open Letter To Period Anja

Dear Period Anja,   I know it's hard to focus on anything except chocolate right now, but thank you for trying.   I just wanted to reach out to find out how you're doing? I know you used that Period Calculator app to find out when your next period will be, and that it let you down again. When will you learn to always have tampons on you? Yes, yes. I'm aware your handbag is always full. But is it really necessary to carry 10 lipsticks, a nail file, an extra pair of shoes, perfume, plasters, half eaten wine gums, 3 pairs of sunglasses, a banana, your hopes and dreams, a dog and 300 issues in your bag?   Okay, put that sharp object down. I'm only...

Gym Thoughts

At the beginning of this year I made a promise to myself to go to gym at least three times a week, and I am proud to say that I have stuck to this. But even though I have been serious about going, I still can't be serious when I'm there. These are just some of the thoughts I've had at gym. Oh wow, look at me. I'm at the gym. I'm such a great adult. I really have my life together. Let me just quickly check Twitter before I go in. I HAVE BEEN SITTING IN MY CAR FOR 20 MINUTES It's cool, I'm cool, everything is cool.  Ah no, now I'll have to make small talk with the super happy person at the check in counter. "Have a...

How To Be A Lekker Person

I know my posts are usually a bit more Buzzfeed than Elite Daily, but I've been thinking about this post for ages and I really wanted to set it free. I'm working on some of these things myself; particularly the "be grateful" part. I think it's too easy to focus on the things that are kak in your life, and to lose sight of all the positive parts. I hope this post inspires you in some small way.   Compliment more   I don't think we compliment each other nearly enough. And we seem to think that we should always go big with our compliments. You have no idea what a simple compliment can do for someone's self-esteem, or how much it can brighten up their day. So compliment...

Retro Bloom

Last year every website I love crashed on Black Friday, and I was unable to buy any discounted clothes. Or so I thought. A few days after Black Friday, I somehow landed on Sassy Chic – a local online shop I’d never visited before. I was so impressed with the variety of fashion on their website, and even more impressed when I discovered that their Black Friday sale was still on. I bought this wrap dress for an absolute steal and it’s one of those timeless pieces I will be able to wear for years to come. Shoutout to Andy Pearce for shooting yet another beautiful post for me. If you would like to work with the talented Mr Pearce, contact him here:[email protected] Dress: Sassy Chic Shoes:...
