Awkward & Awesome Wednesday

Skirt, Top & Sunglasses: Mr Price; Shoes: Melissa; Bag: ALDO
Neckpiece: Sass Diva (now Zuri); Watch: Gifted MK
   

Awkward:
A short skirt and a breeze. Story of my life.
Trying to save the pressed powder, that fell on the floor.
That matte lipstick crack.
Hair dye stains. Oops.
Making to-do lists around pay day. Adult problems.


Awesome:
The Henry Holland range for Mr Price. Must see.
Wash-and-wear hair.
Finding the pair of shoes you thought you gave away (and regretted).
Babies that have a full conversation with you. Isaiah was meant for my I-don't-want-to-be-alone syndrome.
December's next week.

Thankful Tuesday - Isaiah, 9 months old



I completely missed Motherhood Monday yesterday, the very day my boy turned 9 months old. But that's okay. I'll highlight the milestone today, on Thankful Tuesday - because he is a big reason for my thankful heart.





Here're 9 facts about Isaiah:

He wears size 6-12 months, or 9-12 months clothing, and a size 2 shoe.

He weighs 9kgs.

He loves noodles, and cheese curls.

He prefers eating out of my plate.

He often shouts, and loves to laugh - and even pretends to laugh now and then.

He doesn't crawl, but somehow manages to move from point A to B magically.

He pulls himself up to a standing position in the cot.

He has no teeth, but slightly swelled gums.

He loves music. See him dance:

I love him so :)

Floral Suit

Pants, Top, Jacket & Neckpiece: Mr Price; Shoes & Bag: Zara; Sunglasses: YDE


I loved this floral pair the minute I saw it, and I wouldn't want to wear the one without the other. They go together, and that's that. I like that the jacket's sporty, and super lightweight - and that the pants is the perfect ankle grazer, to show off a pretty shoe. Great Friday look, in my book.

Happy Weekend!

Fun

Pants & Top: Mr Price; Shoes: Topshop; Bag: Forever New
Watch: Gifted MK; Earrings: Fashion Express



I was so tempted to pair this over-sized tshirt with boyfriend jeans, but I'm glad I didn't. It worked out well with these fun pants. I like it. There's enough edginess, and a little bit of chic.

Awkward & Awesome Wednesday

Dress: Pure; Shoes & Neckpiece: Mr Price; Bag: Foschini; Sunglasses: ALDO


Awkward:
My body's position as I share a bed with a baby who sleeps like a grown man.
...because this baby does not want to stay in his cot.
Said baby's demand to sleep uncovered. Dare not tuck Isaiah in.
The bags under my eyes.
Heels, getting stuck in the ground.
A bruise without a source. Happens all the time.
Asking Lerato what awkward things have happened lately. My awkwardness is public knowledge.
"Oh, I haven't seen this outfit before, Nastassja." Every single day.

Awesome:
New house stuff.
Decorating dreams.
A new job on the horizon. More about that in the new year.
2013. This year has been one of dreams.
Coke. As in, coca cola. All summer long.
Isaiah.
Husband.
Folks.
December, around the corner.
Grace. Thank You Lord for grace.

Motherhood Monday

Dress: Xogo; Shoes: Sam Star; Neckpiece: Mr Price
Bag: Foschini; Sunglasses: YDE
  

I cannot believe Isaiah is nearly 9 months old. This growing up thing happens too fast. Here we are having conversations with our boy (him, in baby talk of course) when just the other day he was so fragile, we didn't really know how to hold him. I have to remind myself, every new day, to take in and savour every moment. While parenting has it's challenges, I still wouldn't wish a single second away. I love this.






Thanks to Lerato for these pictures.

Happy new week!
