Good Bye 2014



This has been a big year for my family. A lot has happened, and we've experienced His grace in abundance. I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I do set a new vision each year. When I look at

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick: Latte Matte



I love a good nude lip, so when I first discovered this matte lipstick by Smashbox I fell in love. Now, nude is very subjective as what works as a nude for me may not be the case with you - but I think this

This is basically my formula for feeling feminine, and the A-line skirt works well for my body type. I

Easy Day



These locally-made leather flats from Mr P have me in holiday mode and they've been in rotation since I got them. They can be paired with everything, from dressy maxi dressers to off-duty denim.

Pastel



I felt like such a lady in this outfit. It must be the lady-like silhouette combined with pastels.

Keeping things casual in this dungaree from Mr P. I've paired it with these block heels from Zara and

28th Birthday



I'm 28 today!

Birthdays are a big deal for me, and we've sort of made a tradition of dedicating an entire month to celebrate birthdays in my household. Being the ultimate spoiler, my Husband got me loads of

Until recently, I lived without the perfect denim jacket - but let me tell you, I don't know how I did it.

I love these sunglasses from Zuri - it's so fun and makes the perfect statement. I'll be wearing it all Summer long!

Jumpsuit



The jumpsuit is all the rage this season, but if you choose well it's a piece that will serve you long after it's trending.

Print Maxi + Giveaway



I was immediately drawn to this dress by Lavand at 32 Clothing recently. It's so feminine. When I tried it on I was thrilled that it's not floor length but instead shows off the ankle and a pretty shoe!

Geometric



This is one of my favourite dresses. It's incredibly easy to wear, and can be dressed up or down.

Friday Night Casual



This is the date night version of this outfit. Adding heels is the quickest way to spruce up a casual day time look. I threw on a blazer too, and we're good to go.

Grey Tones



I'm drawn to simple outfits these days, and I'm loving plain loose tshirts because it's so easy to wear.

32 Clothing



We discovered a fashion treasure trove when we checked out 32 Clothing on Rissik Steet recently. The store offers branded clothing at discounted prices like no other, so it's only right that I share it with you.

I was overwhelmed when we first walked in, as the entire floor is covered with stacked rails of clothing, organised by type and size. It's a treasure hunt and a thrilling experience, especially with all the bargains to be found. Husband found a great Banana Republic blazer for R150. Insane.

My camera's battery died while we were taking these pictures, but I wanted to share the ones we managed to take anyway because I really liked this outfit.

Thankful Tuesday



[Things I'm thankful for.]
Being able to work from home, and never miss a moment with Isaiah.
Christmas approaching. I love the festive season.
Being able to sleep in every morning.

Jogger



When I bought these shoes I didn't think it would be as easy to wear as this.

Letter Skirt



I love this skirt from Anisa's 2013 Project range at Mr Price. It's a gorgeous dropped waist in a stretchy scuba fabric. I love scuba because it's so flattering - even in bodycon cuts.

Coffee Table Styling



It's easy to let the coffee table catch keys, remote controls and other odd items - but this piece is a focal point in any room so it's worth styling just as you would every other part of the house. One of the easiest ways to switch up a room is to rework the coffee table - it's an affordable way to bring something fresh into a space. Here is how I've styled the coffee table in our lounge.

Make-up faves: Lips



I often get asked about my make-up faves so I thought I'd do more posts that focus on that. I'm a basic-face kind of girl, but I hardly go out without lipstick. It's the one make-up item I switch up regularly, and the one thing I buy often too. This post is dedicated to my favourite lipsticks.

HENRY HOLLAND x MRP



 I'm so excited about Henry Holland's latest range for MRP. After two successful collabs, you wouldn't think they'd manage to get any cooler, but paired with the fun Chloe Norgaard, this range is chart topping.

I love stripes so I was immediately drawn to this tank dress from Mr Price. It's very easy to wear and I would definitely pair it will my converse all-stars for an errand run.

Pink + Orange + Red. All over.



Colour overload today. It started with this neck piece from Zuri, and it just so happened that I have a dress and shoes with these exact colours. And so, I decided to wear it all together because it's Summer (Spring?) - and that's a good enough reason for me.

Skip Fashion Exchange - Love Your Clothes

Last week my fabulous friend Verna and I attended this year's final Skip Fashion Exchange at Turbine Hall, Johannesburg. The event was packed, and the swap was well stocked! Both Verna and I walked away with great pieces.









Aside from a great three course meal, and in between some entertainment,  we had a short talk on trends - and a few lucky ladies actually walked away with the outfits that were showcased!





Head over to Skip's website and show some love for your clothes with the 3-word-wardrobe. I love this concept, because there is definitely a relation between what you're wearing and the mood you're in. Share your 3-word-wardrobe and stand a chance to win shopping vouchers from Spree!

Around the house, lately.

I'm yet to do proper decor posts, now that most of the renovations around the home are done. We redid the flooring in the bedrooms, did a complete kitchen overhaul and built a walk-in closet (which is my favourite place in the house, of course). I'm constantly redecorating, and it's a work in progress (which it will forever be, I'm sure) - here're a few pictures of some of my favourite things around the home.

Dots + Check

 
 
I went outside of my comfort zone and mixed prints of more than two colours. I figured, white is still a common colour in the mix - and so it's still pretty safe. Besides, a print in black and white should be a neutral by now - it's such a classic, and an easy-to-mix print.
