Life Lately


We're trying to squeeze in some family time - later than I'd like to admit. Isaiah woke up from his sleep, excited that daddy's home, and recalls a dozen stories from today while Zachary sleeps on my shoulder. I've put him to bed twice tonight, and he chooses me over sleep every time. We've survived a few weeks of sick over here. Coughs and snotty noses. Fevers and midnight cries. And now I think we have the result of all the spoiling we did, especially the cuddles. 

We're breaking our own rules. Schedules are out the door this week and recently in general, as husband works longer days than usual so family life is a little topsy turby. And boy, it's hard work.

Play time. Bath time. Supper time. Night time. Times Two.

Two.

That's what life has been lately. Two kids. Crazy days. Exhilarating days. Toddler jokes and baby giggles. Learning what works for us, and what the priority is. It's been our little family.  

Zachary is nearly 7 months old, and Isaiah is now 3. Three. With a mouth full of where-did-he-learn-that kinda stories. 
There are so many moments in a day where my heart could burst with joy. So many where my mouth bursts with laughter. I'm having the time of my life. Truly. Kids may be hard work, but it's also the most accomplished I have ever felt. They're the best part of me.

Ugh. My shoulder hurts from this big boy. Let me tuck him in again. Three's a charm.

p.s. Thanks for sticking around. Less babble next time. xxx

Style Yourself



I've been ridiculously quiet; we're finding our feet with the new baby, while trying to juggle a thousand other things.

One of those, our next Style Seminar coming up! I'm so so excited about this one as it's set to be the best one yet. It's themed Style Yourself because that is my ultimate goal as an Image Consultant - to equip women of all shapes and sizes, colours and ages, to be their own stylist. I help women learn who they are, and what their personal style is - and so they know what works for them, and really, what they feel most confident in. This seminar is about finding your personal style, a style that no trend can compete with.

I'm teaming up with great women to really bring you a jam-packed day.

My good friend Verna Samson joins as with a great talk on Body Confidence. Verna is an inspiring blogger over at www.vpsinspire.com, and a motivator. Then on Turban Styling we have Designer, Stylist, Makeup Artist & Director of Hse of Bespoke by WH - Waseefa Hutton Adams. So many of you write to me often, requesting a turban styling tutorial and I'm mostly winging it, but Waseefa's a pro and you will learn some fabulous tricks!

We will also have a popup shop, of all things girly and fabulous - for a great time of spoils.

Today is the last day for early bird tickets, at R250pp. Tickets are available on Computicket, or you may book by writing to me here.

I hope to have you there!

10 Pieces 30 Outfits: Summer of Fun



After the popular first post from this series, there is finally another. Lwazi shot these images ages ago (I was about two months pregnant!) and I wanted to get it out before Summer ends (or in time for Summer/Spring if it's still Winter on your end). Hopefully you'll find some inspiration with this playful mix.
