A Quick Tutorial

If there is one thing I love, it’s having hair that makes me look like I know everyone’s secrets. I don’t always have the time to curl my hair, however. So I’ve had to come up with a way to get my curl on quickly. How do I cut time? I wash my hair before bed, plait it while it’s still damp and take it out of the plait the next morning. This gives my hair volume and light curls to work with as a base. If I don’t do this; my hair is too straight and it takes me x3 times longer to curl. What curler to use? I used the Glampalm Magic Wand Curler. I’ve had VERY heat damaged hair...

Whimsical

Look at me keeping my promise to blog more! This look was shot ages ago with photographer, Zel Archer, and make-up artist, Cat Terblanche. I meant to upload it sooner, but then life happened. BUT HERE IT IS! YAY! I’m wearing a whimsical tulle skirt by local designer, Olga-Maré. This skirt made me feel like I was 6 and 26 at the same time. It’s so gorgeous. I teamed it with a crisp white shirt from the Woolworths David Jones collection, which I have fallen in love with. I bought a few David Jones pieces at the beginning of winter and I’m so happy with the quality and aesthetic of it. I finished the look off with jewellery from Black Betty and...

Coffee Date

I can't believe that I went through 22 years without coffee. At school I used to pull my nose up at it - only drinking a cup every now and then in winter. During my varsity years I started buying coffee at the cafeteria to fuel me after late nights working on projects, or partying. But even then it wasn't really because I liked the taste - just because I needed the kick.   Then I started working in the CBD, and House of Machines was just across the road from my office. And with that the coffee addiction started.   My mom and I recently went to Pretoria to visit my family, and I made her stop at coffee shops every morning so...

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...

Feeling Fresh

I realised a while ago that a lot of my readers don't know what I do for a living. As open as I am on my blog, I like to keep my worklife private. But I can tell you that I work in the digital industry. Working in this industry means that you are online 24/7, and it's super difficult to plan a holiday/break when you are always accessible. But at the beginning of 2017 I promised myself that I would try. This year is all about taking care of my physical and mental health, and a big part of that is learning when to take some time to myself. And so that's what I did this past week. I went...
