Colourful Vicorian Facades

Although it wasn't a Victorian colonial tradition to paint buildings in bright/acidic colours. I think it gives these beautiful colonial buildings a South African identity. Colour looks fantastic in our sunlight.

Vintage carrier & book cover

My mom and I paid a visit to an antique shop, that recently opened, and I found these there.

Tribute to the colour black

I feel that I don't wear enough black anymore. It's my favourite colour. I can wear black from head to toe. Black Military boots, black skinny jeans, black t-shirt, black double breasted coat, huge black scarf and black bowler hat. Ah... want to wear it tomorrow.

90's = ♥

These looks, look like something my dad and teacher would've worn respectively, in the 90's! And I really like them.


Tribal print = cool

I would wear this exact look

This makes me want a leather biker jacket so bad. It's on my "list".


I appreciate this trend when it's not too literal. These looks have a military feel without plastering camo all over them.

I really (really, really!) dig the style of the guys from "Hurts"!

This is a look from lookbook, seemingly isnpired by Hurts I gather, with a title taken from a track of theirs (A great track with an equally great video) called - "Wonderful Life"


Up until quite recently, I had just longer than shoulder length hair, it was getting a bit scraggly and I hardly ever brushed it. This is bad practice if you have longer hair. So I decided to have it cut shorter in the popular pompadour style, well, my version of it. A longer version. So I went in to the hairdresser/salon with photographic aids in hand and it all went downhill, fast. I left with a terrible haircut which two weeks later is looking bowl-ish. Needless to say I told the stylist I didn't like it and it wasn't what I wanted. It's a non style. I'd have felt better if I could actually work it. Can't wait for the end of year hols when it will have grown out to a decent length! And I will look after it right from here on out so that I am never tempted to destroy it! Haircut every 2 months etc...

Lesson learned: don't go for a popular style that looks awesome when pulled off by the right person and done by the right stylists in Pop culture magazines etc. When it's probably not going to suit you all that well and is a mission to style everday.
