hippy love

Outfit post!
Just look at the silly look on my face!
It's clear I can't do sexy - in fact I look like a deer in the head lights, eeeeeep!
I wore this to dinner with my mom the other night.
The most gorgeous and comfy blouse from Charter Club - it's like wearing pyjama's out in public, I swear.
Sheer, loose, long and flowy!
Not a whole bunch of detail going on here, but hopefully you all get the picture.
Enjoy the final bit of your Sunday everyone - sob!
But hey, I go on holiday this week YAAAY.
So flippen excited.

Hot Damn!

Pics from the weekend:
What a scorcher!
It was absolutely boiling here this weekend, but what beautiful weather indeed!
Took a little trip to Sun City (in the North West of South Africa for those international readers out there) for the day yesterday - had some lunch, completed by a couple of refreshing beers of course! Also tried my hand at some gambling, which I was horrible at, but I think that's partly due to the fact that the Sun City casino hasn't had a makeover in some 20 years so I felt like I had taken a time capsule back to the 80's!
Bright, patterned carpets and gold walls, giant casino chip ornaments and fake jungles all ensured a sensory overload of note!
But it was good fun, and a nice pleasant change from my daily weekend practices of eating at local restaurants and shopping for unnecessary items (Hello Kitty cat collar charm for Frankie comes to mind... hrmmm.)

Happy happy yay yay

It's Friday!
Weekend time is upon us!
I'm going up to Sun City tomorrow for the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
And by that I mean that I will most probably find a restaurant to eat in, perhaps some shops to peruse around, and maybe a spa to occupy an hour or so of my Saturday.
Have a happy weekend everybody.

Thursday Inspiration

Home alone, watching The Office and inspiring myself and all of you's out there with these pretties.

If you scroll down one or two posts you will find a little Movember "thingy" (for lack of a better word to be completely honest! Terrible, I know! I mean, it's only 21:10 so I can't blame the wee hours of the morning or anything...)
Anyway, I decided to edit that post and exclude the part where I express my disappointment at not being able to grow my own lady-tache.
So I pretended I had one - et voila!
Horrendous snap, and even more horrendous face fuzz!
So silly, but at least I don't feel left out now.

Marc Jacobs Beaut

Absolutely, 100% in love with the Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 embroidered dress worn by Kate Hudson on the cover of Elle South Africa - December 2010.
Too gorgeous for words!
It's really quite perfect.
What do you guys think?
Isn't it just the sweetest little dress ever?

November is nearing an end, and with it we shall bid farewell to Movember - the facial hair challenge that does it's bit for charity, whilst allowing men to look both retro, and a little bit Hillbilly.

Enjoy my Movember Madness inspired artwork found at weheartit - the last one is my personal fav.

Mince Pies & Smoky Eyes

It seems as if my blog has become a one weekly post phenomenon.

Perhaps I should change the name to The Weekly Smile, or something of the likes? I promise to return to more regular posting as from now. I've just been a bit swamped with work and studying (which are a very unfortunate match I might add. No one wants to nestle into a big pile of Psychology textbooks after a day in the office dammit.)

Anyway - onto the specifics of this post! I thought, what with Xmas nearing (YAY!), I would conjur up my ideal party outfit. Ideal for posh festive dinners and also the famous end of year office party.

And we all know that nothing says Christmas quite like some sparkly sequins!

Full Cream Cafe

The birthday girl.

Yesterday we went to Pretoria to a gorgeous little place called Full Cream Cafe for my friend's birthday.
What a beautiful spot, which was superbly decorated by mama birthday girl.
We ate sublime food and sipped yummy champagne, and had a wonderful afternoon.

Outfit post!
This is what I wore to dinner last night with my mama which was sublime - beef fillet with red wine jus and summer veg, and a perfect little Tiramisu to end it off, all swallowed down with a bottle of bubbly to share... yum!
*High waisted trousers - Woolworths
*Belt - Primark
*Tan platforms - John Rocha
*Peach vest with lace and pearl detail - Mr P
*Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple'
The weekend is almost over - sob!
Have a happy week everybody.


Last weekend I went to Benoni for lunch at a place called Grapes.
It was lovely!
My best friend, Giselle, and her boyfriend invited us for some lunch and beverages and a sweet afternoon was had by all!
Us girls guzzled sparkling wine like it was juice, and had lots of funsies.
Benoni is so sweet and old-school, and I must admit I missed out on many photo opps when dodgy old cars drove past and crusty old men sang R&B tunes from their dated BMW's.

planet rock

Hi guys!
Hope you've all had a fabulous weekend. I did!
And now it's Sunday, but before I retire to bed and prepare for a wonderful week of work (yeah right!), I wanted to show you all my new favourite necklace!
Studio W from Woolworths - I love it!
It's lovely with plain white and black vests, and it doesn't look that bad with my new chiffon vest with the beading detail (also from Woolies - I went a bit mad there last weekend).
It reminds me of a piece of some amazing space rock.
Yup, like I'm carrying a fragment of some meteor around my neck, how cool?
You lovely amethyst you.

I'm a girl of my word, and as promised here are some of my favourites rings!
Those babies with the brown, blue and bright green stones were my Nana's rings which I just absolutely adore.
And the gold belt ring was my mom's, which she so kindly gave to me since we both knew I would appreciate it a bit more than her these days!
And then there's the hundreds of other beauts from all over the place, which are all lovely in there own special, sparkly way.
