If you really knew me

If you really knew me...

You would know I don't find silence awkward at all.

You would know that I'm quite sensitive and I cry for all weird and wonderful reasons.  A touching story, a bunch of flowers, weddings,  extreme makeover home edition, Fox and the Hound,  weird I tell you.

You would know I'm utterly, completely, incurably obsessed with the world and this results in fascination with history and geography.  You'll lose me any place that has an atlas or globe and history books.  It's this reason that I'm utterly, completely, incurably obsessed with travel.  I want to know, to see, to understand and experience every part of this interest.

You would know I love to smile.  I love to laugh.  I love people who make me laugh.

You would know that I think long hair makes any girl a million times prettier.

Tribal print and sequins

Vintage sweater | Mr Price dress | Woolworths tights | Mr Price shoes | Sass diva necklace
This long weekend was spent doing some productive learning but I ventured out for a dinner with friends.  It's always so special to be in the company of my favourite people.  I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends, family and boyfriend.  They always put smiles on my face.  

What to wear when you are feeling so happy?  The answer is always a dress.  And maybe a bit of sparkle.  Since it's still so cold, I put on this warm sweater that was my Mom's and I loved the two together.  Paired with a statement necklace, I was ready to walk out the door.

Seeing Rose

Michael Kors watch | Sass Diva bracelet | Sass Diva ring

As you may have already gathered, I'm completely in love with all things rose coloured.  This is how I used the colour in accessories for dinner last night.  It's a lot but I love it.  What do you think?

Have a great weekend everyone!

In the winter time

It's cold in Johannesburg!!!  So cold that it snowed on Tuesday.  Can you believe it??  Snow in sunny South Africa!  The excitement could not be contained around here.  I stood outside in my pajamas believing that I was standing inside a snow globe.

Yesterday there was no snow but it was still so cold so here's my take on dressing in freezing weather.

Forever New coat, Woolworths tights, Woolworths dress, Zoom boots, Mr Price ear muffs, Woolworths gloves and a scarf from my Grandma.

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I spent it relaxing and watching DVDs.  Shore Shank Redemption is highly recommended if you haven't seen it already.  I hope this picture I found on Pinterest this morning lifts you out of any possible "blue Monday".

I have so much to be thankful for and I've been reflecting on this quite a bit this weekend.  I have such a wonderful family, fantastic friends, the gift of education, of the senses and of life.  The hard times definitely make the good times all that much sweeter.  If anyone of you is having a difficult time at the moment,  be brave, you will make it through.  There are plenty smiles waiting for you on the other end.  Have faith.
