Let's Chat

Happy Spring Day everyone!

I thought it was time to dive into an open field with the flowers blossoming and the birds chirping in the background and add a new section to my blog called, “Let’s chat with coffee”.

Why you might ask? First and foremost, I’m a caffeine addict. I cannot start my day without not having at least three cups for the morning. Yes, three cups. Not that small mugs but a standard size cup. And secondly, I initially started this platform as an opinion piece and I would like to tap into that side again because my fingers are itching to write more on issues that are dear to my heart.

So, with a cup of coffee in my hand, I’ll be speaking or merely writing about whatever comes to mind. And let me tell you, I am not shy to talk about my experiences or touch on topics someone from my circle spoke about. If there is anything you all would like me to research, I’ll do it with pleasure or let me rather say with coffee :). But please, do not mention anything with politics, race or stereotypes because those are three subjects I want to run away from.

Since the beginning of this blogging journey I wrote about ‘My love-hate relationship with my boobs’ , ‘Marriage? But, I’m only 22‘ and, ‘I’m not a behind the stove kind of woman‘. So, have a read through what I’ve done in the past and, let’s see if this segment will interest you all.

Next week, I’ll be talking about my experience with blogging – Yeah, yeah I know. Boring topic but, I’ll be reviewing my understanding of this cyber-sphere over the last few months of being an aspiring blogger in South Africa.

Until next time.

TouristThe last time I was at Hout Bay Harbour, I was about 16. Fast forward seven years and, it looks like a completely different place but with the same name. I felt like a tourist in my own city, exploring a new place.

I always dreamt of travelling abroad and I’m sure most of us have our wish list of which places to visit. But, I realized while driving to Hout Bay that I haven’t even explored most of Cape Town let alone South Africa. So, before I make any plans to visit Copenhagen or Prague, I need to explore South Africa first.

Spring doesn’t really make its appearance on the first but generally only after the 21st of the month or even later like it did last year. But in the meantime, because I’m so excited to get out of this cold winter weather we experienced over the last few months, I started stocking up on pretty sandals and dresses. I found this black and white pattern dress at Edgars.

Now due to this bulge I have by my stomach and my thick thighs, I can’t wear mini or tight skirts or dresses. I have to wear what makes my body comfortable like opting for elastic dresses worn above the stomach to create a flow over it which makes your waist look smaller. I will also be starting to wear dresses above the knee or over it during the summery season because nobody likes to see my cellulite, right?

With this attire, I wore my beige and black sandals from two years back paired with my white handbag and of course, a pair of sunglasses. I loved this location which created a sense of culture, a culture I belong too. Did you know that Hout Bay Harbour is often called the Heart of the Cape? According to the Hout Bay Organised page, it is the 9th most visited tourist attraction which includes a yacht and boat marina, a working fishing fleet, a craft market and, has a couple of fish and chips outlets such as the infamous Mariners Whalf.

For those of you who have been following me on my social media platforms, I’ve announced my collaboration with Lifestyle Blogger, Courtney Davids from Courtney’s Culture, where every Wednesday during the month of August we’ll be combining our post with various topics and posts. Last week, we spoke about our Top 10 Spring items. So, if you haven’t had a chance to read it, here you go.

This week we are speaking about Prints. Prints are there if you a daring person who loves to make a bold statement whether it’s a pair of shoes, a handbag or pants; that item helps you build the rest of your ensemble around that item.

I’ve chosen to wear a printed colourful kimono I purchased the beginning of this year. I added accents around the various colours but still making it the focal point of the outfit.

All about PrintsI’ve gone for a more casual look with a bit of edginess hence the Chelsea boots. Seeing that it’s still relatively cold whether the sun is out or not, I wore a long black top underneath my kimono and tied it with a vintage belt and added a vintage clutch bag with a lighter shade.

All about Prints

Courtney on the other hand had a different interpretation of prints. She opted for a more neutral kind of look by wearing a black and white printed blouse/top which changed her overall appearance from causal to smart casual.

All about Prints

Her philosophy is that plain prints stands out more instead of looking to chaotic with a mixture of colourful prints as it can be dressed up with gorgeous accessories.

All about Prints

In her opinion, prints tend to make your look less complicated because you don’t need more than just that one item. She paired her outfit with a pair of jeans and navy blue peep-toe squared heels. Courtney adds that you need to make sure that the print you are opting to wear agrees with your personality and that it’s comfortable because, confidence is key.

Until next time.

BlackandWhite

Since I was a little girl, I loved black and white photographs. My father is a camera technician therefore, he always had his camera on hand. So, if you trace back to my baby years, you’ll find that most of my photographs were taken in black and white.

What I admire about monotonous images is that it illustrates the real detail of the image and truly makes a photograph stand out. I agree, a colourful image does make the design or outfit catchy and interesting but, it’s nothing compared to a beautiful monochrome appearance.

When it comes to telling a story, black and white imagery portrays your genuine emotion. The compositions turn out perfect and gives off a sharp contrast. That’s why I opted to wear a black and white attire this week. I came across this mid-length cotton dress and realized that I had a pair of white block heels still gathering dust in my closet.

I love how it depicts that extraordinary perspective of the realism throughout the shots taken by my sister. I wore these versatile chunky heels mostly known as block heels to stay trendy but comfy too.

There comes a time in ones life when you hit a speed bump or two. Peter Guber once said that, “Every journey that is successful has culs-de-sac and speed bumps. I carry a wisdom gene through my life through the good, the bad and, the ugly”.
