I used to listen LOVE Melktert Kommissie when I was younger and it made me so happy to see their new song on my @SpotifySA Release Radar this morning. Dankie, @DieMelkterte!…

City Nights

A while ago J-P and I decided to brainstorm places to go to for our December break. We decided on St Francis Bay, but by the time we made up our minds - there was literally no accommodation left. So, we decided to do something that confused the hell out of our fellow Capetonians: we went to Port Elizabeth for a week. On day one, we hit Bay West Mall which is their Canal Walk. A beautiful new shopping mall, with a plethora of shops - yet I couldn't find one single dress. Eventually J-P sauntered into a shop next to Edgars, and called me to come and look at their sale. I went up to the sale section, and I almost...

Truworths Summer 2016

I am a summer baby, and I have made it abundantly clear in all my blog posts. When Truworths sent me their summer lookbook; I was SO amped to go in store to check it out. I wasn't disappointed. From patterned skirts, gypsy-inspired prints; culotte pants; nauticals; white sneakers and distressed jeans – they've got the fashion scope covered for you this season. I chose the beautiful dress I am wearing in this post within the first 5 minutes of my shopping spree. It was in the doorway, and I fell in love with it immediately. Its material is incredible and it made me feel like a queen when I wore it. I can't tell you enough how nice it was to...

Truworths Winter 2016

Let me tell you a little story about how I deal with winter: I don't. I am ALWAYS cold. Always. It makes it very hard for me to go about my routine, and even harder to look cute when I go out. Truworths recently approached me to view their Winter 2016 catalogue and to go choose some items in store. I was so very pleased to discover that they have a variety of beautiful and WARM coats and cardigans. It was the first thing I noticed when I walked into the store. They have coats in every colour - from grey to bright yellow (in the Ginger Mary section). It was a tough decision, but I opted for a pullover polo-neck jersey,...

Even though I have been ranting about motorists, posting about my new MAC lipstick and giving career advice – I have been very quiet in terms of fashion posts. The reason for this is that I decided to do quality over quantity. I have never really classified myself as a fashion blogger, as my blog has too many themes to truly stick to one. But as my blog’s name states: I love a bit of glitz in my life. This year I decided to revamp my blog and relook the way I approach fashion posts. As a result I have teamed up with some talented photographers, such as Zel Archer and Grethe Rosseaux and now Vaughn Wright. Even though Vaughn and I work...

Most of the shoots I have done until now have been quite light and airy, so when photographer Grethe Rosseaux and I were brainstorming for this one, I told her I'd like to do something darker. We got make-up artist, Sam Ellenberger, on-board and headed to Paarl Mountain for our shoot. The light in the forest had other ideas, however. Beautiful sunbeams shot through the trees, bathing us in soft light. We decided to go with it, and Sam used more earthy make-up shades for the earlier shots. As the sun set and the woods got a bit darker, so did my make-up. I am beyond pleased with the result of this shoot, and I can't thank Grethe, Sam and her husband, Bruce, enough...
