Wearing: Shirt - Forever New / Jeans - H&M / Boots - Woolworths

I recently bought this shirt from Forever New because I fell in love with the periwinkle colour. I am fairly pale due to the winter season here in Cape Town but somehow this shirt makes me look slightly tanned. I paired this shirt with my H&M high waisted skinny jeans which are honestly two sizes too big  for me but I made then into a pair of "boyfriend" jeans. I thought that the acid wash jeans would play with the cool tone of the outfit. The break the cool tone of the outfit I threw on my trusty suede boots from Woolworths. This pair has been my go to shoes for winter. I feel like it matches everything in my closet and they are super comfy. Best buy of the month. Since it is still very cold outside I can not simply walk around without some sort of jacket. As I went out that night to my friends place for a braai (or as many people called it a "BBQ") I wore my amazing black leather jacket.

I would love it if you guys could follow me on Bloglovin'.

My Birthday Wish List

My Birthday Wish List

This is just an idea of what I would like for my birthday this year. I know it is only in a few months time but I would LOVE to get these amazing items. Hopefully once I have finished saving up my money for my overseas trip I'll be able to spoil myself a little and splurge on a few things I've been wanting for a quite a while. Unfortunately majority of these items I can not purchase in South Africa and by the time I go overseas it will be gone.

Farm House

Wearing: Shirt - Forever New / Jumper - Old Khaki / Jeans - Sissy Boy / Shoes - Woolworths

Finally exams are finished but the stress still continues with orals and projects due this week. The only thing keeping me going is that I am on holiday in two weeks time. Hopefully, you shall be seeing more of me in the next few weeks.

This weekend my family all came to my aunts farm house to celebrate my dad, my uncle and my cousin's birthday, which all happened in the space of 3 days. Woah. The farmhouse is actually our family farm house that my gran grew up in as a child but moved out as a teenager. Out of pure coincidence my Aunt and Uncle, who are artists, were looking for a house to buy and bought this farm house. Once taking my gran to see the farm house, my gran realised it was the same house she grew up in. Her childhood toys were even still in the attic. For me this is hard to wrap my head around.

This house is the meeting place of our family on all special days such as birthdays, Christmas, Easter and family gatherings. This place holds some of my fondest childhood memories. I love the authenticity of the farm house and the African theme my aunt and uncle tried to maintain. I hope to have many more returns to this farm house.

New In: Winter Essentials

Recently I have been sorting out my closet and I realised I was missing some serious winter essentials. Now not wanting to bore you with the usual long sleeve tops and leggings I decided to show you the exciting new winter pieces I was lucky to obtain. 

1) The Winter Boot 

If you are looking for a classic winter boot, go check out Woolworths! I always seem to find myself buying my most comfortable shoes from Woolworths. This boot in particular doesn't have a super high heel so I find I am able to walk around in it for a very long time. This boots is also very versatile as I am able to style if with many items from my closet.

2) Candles

Now I guess this is quite a strange winter essential but these gardenia scented candles from Mr Price Home spell magnificent when burning in my room. I know for sure that they will be burning constantly in my room this winter. Giving the room a relaxing romantic feeling.

3) Avon Lipstick 

I recently tried out this lipstick from Avon and fell instantly in love! I am normally not the type for lipsticks as I can never find a shade that suits me. But once trying this lipstick I knew this was the one for me. It is a nude colour with a slight shimmer of lilac in it, hence the name Lilac Shimmer. If any of you read my 25 facts about me you would know lilac is my favourite colour therefore this lipstick has killed two birds with one stone! 

4) Avon Cream to Powder Foundation 

I have always been looking for the perfect foundation and this one by Avon has certainly reached that category. One of my friends commented that my skin looked airbrushed when wearing it. I told her where I got it from and she instantly ordered one in her shade. I highly recommend you to try it out and I would love to hear your responses about it!

5) Old Khaki Jersey

I absolutely love this jersey and wish they made these in different colours. This jersey suits everything especially collared shirts due to its high neck line.

6) Woolworths Tartan Leggings 

These leggings from afar looking like they have tartan pattern on them. They made a seemingly average outfit suddenly pop and stand out due to its unique pattern. They are just like normal leggings and are super comfortable. They look great tucked into a pair of Chelsea Boots or winter boots.

Hopefully this has given you some ideas towards your winter closet. I shall try style these pieces for you soon. So stay tuned!

I would love it if you could follow me on Bloglovin'!

Tips to Stay Positive

There comes a time in everybody's life where things do not go their way. Either it be your parents getting divorce, bad break up, friendship problems etc. Sometimes we let sadness consume our every thought. I believe that "everything happens for a reason" and try to look on the brighter side of things. But there are those times when we can't always be happy and stay positive. Though somehow I have found certain things that can make me happy instantly and help me deal with my issues.

Here are my ways to help me though a tough time:

1) Surround yourself with positive and happy people - these people will lift your mood by making you laugh and creating a happy atmosphere. DO NOT hang out with people that will belittle you or make you feel worse about yourself as that will make the problem worse.

2) Watch a comedy movie - laughing and smiling is one step closer to happiness. Comedies make you laugh and you start to see the happier things about life. DO NOT watch a soppy sad chick flick that you will end up crying because that won't help the situation.

3) Sleep it off - sometimes when I have had a hard and miserable day I decide to take a nap and sleep it off. Then when I wake up I feel revitalised and fresh and everything doesn't seem as before.

4) Distract yourself - I have a made a playlist on iTunes which contains all the songs that make me happy and I stay away from the deep meaningful songs that can draw out other sad emotions.

5) Drink something warm - hot chocolate, coffee, tea etc. are good examples of beverages I drink that warm me up inside and ironically warm my personality and attitude up as well.

6) Eat comfort food - eating the food (e.g. chocolate for me) that you love can instantly make you happy but DO NOT over indulge because that can make you feel sickly and that can cause the complete opposite of feeling better about yourself.

7) Talk to somebody - sometimes speaking to somebody can help you understand the situation more and clear things up. The closer you are to moving on the closer you are to being happy. DO NOT over analyse and over think because that can make things worse.

8) Exercise - letting out your stress or sadness through a physical way can be a great way of clearing the head and feeling better about yourself, emotionally and physically.

9) Doing things you love - reading, surfing, writing, shopping, drawing are just a few examples. Everybody has a hobby or some form of activity that they enjoy to do. This can take you into other world filled with happiness.

10) Think positively - positive thoughts equals positive mind and body.

I hope some of these tips will be able to help you. These are my ways of staying happy and positive therefore it can vary from person to person.

Winter Trend: The "Men's" Coat

Winter in nearly here in South Africa, the air is getting colder, more rain and the North West is starting to howl. Us girls need to dust off our winter coats and jackets and start to put on those layers. Why not better do it in style with over sized tops coat that looks like it can be taken out of your boyfriends closet. Designers such as Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang have incorporated this looks in their designs. Who would want to look like a model wearing the latest trends? This style is not only extremely warm but it brings the boyish feel and look out in the outfit. To bring back that bit of feminine you can add a colourful scarf or a pair of classy high heels to finish the outfit. Though many fashion bloggers keep to the classic neutral and dark colours paired with leather booths to keep warm.

These European trends will definitely find its way to South Africa this winter.

I always finding myself browsing through tumblr's fashion blogs and being so inspired that I want to take my debit card out of its pouch it and spend it on all the beautiful clothes out there. But no I must RESIST. Saving has become so hard lately. I am wearing thin. I have not swiped my debit card in 5 months. Soon I will burst and just spend all the money I have been saving up. Even though I can't spend, I would love to share my inspiration and love of fashion to you all. 

Lately I have been falling head of heels for the classic black and white with a hint of pastel. Though winter is coming up soon and the pastel colours will  not be able to make it into my everyday wardrobe.   I am one of those girls who live for the classic items in her closet. But a little bit of edge won't hurt me with a stud or two. I have been taught as a little girl that "Fashion comes and goes but style is here to stay". I have been quite naive in the past with my fashion sense with following what everybody else wears but now I have realised that I have my own fashion and creativity that makes me and what I wear. I have not yet defined my style but I do know that it will grow and mature in the years to come.

A Dream Come True

Last year my best friend, Jenna, and I decided that at the end of our matric year we are going to England for a holiday. And on Wednesday Jenna and I booked our tickets to England for 4 weeks. So in the December holidays Jenna and I will be jet setting off on an adventure. I cannot control my excitement. My hands are shaking and there is a constant cheesy smirk on my face. I am so grateful to share this experience with Jenna and I know we will have an amazing time exploring the vibrant, historical and fashionable city of London.

One and a half years ago I went off to Europe on a family holiday and London was one of the many cities we visited. London made a massive impression on me and was one of my favourite cities we visited. I do not know what captivated me more. Maybe it was the historical buildings? The cute cafes? The vibrant English bars? The overflowing feel of fashion? The helpful and funny citizens? The great food? Or was it all of it combined to form a surreal atmosphere of the famous city of London? London captured my heart and returning to it will be a dream come true.
