How To Be A Lekker Person

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:...

2017 Oscars Red Carpet Rant

Last night the stars looked absolutely incredible at the Academy Awards, so I really had to scratch deep to find dresses for this post. Kudos to all the celebrities for looking so incredible. And thanks to those who gave me content for this blog. Halle Berry (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic) This outfit is more deurmekaar than kots in a tumbledryer.

How to make the most of a Garden Route Holiday

A holiday, already? Wow, Anja. It's February. Calm down. But you guys, March and April are coming. And with all those public holidays - it's basically like a second December. And if you're like me and you had to be online over the Festive Season, now's the time to take a proper break! J-P and I absolutely love the East Coast, and last year we went to Jeffrey's Bay for Easter and in December we went to Port Elizabeth for a week. I find everything about the trip up charming, from stopping at little farm stalls in Robertson to finding a Wimpy in the most obscure little towns. (I love Wimpy. Don't judge me.) But what I love the most, is the Garden...
