South African Youth Has Been Manipulated Into Supporting A Failed System

Today I am sad to say that I take all back of saying that I am a proud South African! However I am proud of the youth to taking a stand against a failed system! Finally someone is questioning, who are meant to be our leaders! But yet being ignored...

Sadly, we have been lied to, and the youth of South Africa has been manipulated into supporting a country that actually really does not support us!

All the marketing campaigns of government, and the various political parties stating that they have the youth's best interests at heart and are there to nurture, serve and protect the youth of this country have all been lies and it has all become clear in their actions against the youth, who have merely been protesting for the right to education! Ignorance is all they get back!

The time it is and has taken for any one in power to address the students is unacceptable, leaving matters in the hands of the South African Police service who acted out in violence, using stunt grenades and teargas against unarmed students! No students physically attacked anyone or used force against another human being in order to be heard, but yet force has been used against them!

Happy Days | Approaching Summer

Sometimes we get a little bit too caught up in our own lives, or at least that is how the saying goes. But, I believe that one should be caught up in your own life, but at the same time, you still care and love those around you.

With that said, life has been pretty beautiful, with a lot happening and keeping me busy. I do prefer to be kept busy, I mean, firstly keeping busy and knowing that I have things to do tends to motivate me and inspire more and then at the same time it also gives me the opportunity to cross paths with amazing people who I have amazing experiences with.

Living in Cape Town has for one, been the most amazing experience. I get to be close to my family, although I don’t get to see them often, at least I know that they are there. I love my mom, brother and sister to bits and would do anything for them.

Then, Cape Town has allowed me to go on a journey of self discovery. People do say that the place is clicky, but I tend to disagree. If you were to end up in any city in the world, it would be up to you to make the connections and meet new friends. Cape Town is one of the most friendliest cities that I have ever lived in, and I love it.
Every day brings new experiences, every day is a chapter in my journey of life, and it is exciting, never boring.

Work has been incredibly rewarding. I am finally doing something that I love and am devoted to. The fact that I get to mentor people and guide them in their own journey is special. And then being able to share my knowledge and experience with the world is rewarding in its own rite.
All I can say and what I would like to leave with you today is something that I have always known and live by, but every now and again it is good to be reminded of is that ‘YOUR’ life is yours and you should not live your life according to what anyone else says. People’s perception of you, is their perception, and in essence it should not matter. As long as you take responsibility for the choices you make, good and bad, stick by them and know that you are living and in control of your OWN life.

Happy Days!

Bucking Good Shoes | Goodwin Smith

Recently I was treated to three pairs of Goodwin Smith shoes. Their tagline "Bucking Good Shoes" is exactly what they are! And one thing I can say is that I have never worn a pair of shoes that makes me feel as good as these do!

They are stylish, sophisticated and elegant. Each one is unique in their own way, and without fail, every time I wear them I get asked what they are and where do I get them from.

My favourite pair has to be the Tunstead double monk-strap that delivers sophistication, handcrafted from premium Italian Parma Leather and produced in Navy, with a detailed tread sole to aid grip

Check out their website here for the rest of their collections and ranges: https://goodwinsmith.co.uk

Gosh | Life

This morning I woke up and thought: "What mood should I be in today?" It's pretty simple, we get to choose our attitude and outlook for the day. I chose to be happy and positive... This is not always the case though, to be honest. But for the most part, I am going to be making a concerted effort to choose a positive attitude and outlook.

So, besides going through another break up, and actually only being single for the first time in what? 4 or 5 years, so I am on a journey of self discovery! There are so many things to be grateful for, and really, we don't actually have THAT much time, so why waste it dwelling on the past and on negativity.

Other than that, I have some exciting things in the pipeline, my underwear brand should officially hit retailers in the next few months! So keep your eyes open, but you will be the first to know :0) The first range is going to be a limited range, so once it hits the stores, you better get cracking! Just saying ;) And as always, for those that do support, thank you! It is always appreciated!

I also recently landed a small gig on a new local television talk show called The Afternoon Express, its nothing too big, and am really just supporting cast for now, but the opportunity is great, and I am looking forward to seeing where that goes.

Work has also been amazing! I moved over to Platinumseed as senior digital strategist, and I am loving every moment of it! I went from feeling like I needed to change careers at my previous company, to knowing that this is what I love doing at this company! It just shows you how much a company has an effect on your personal life.

With all that said, I am looking forward to what the future holds! Life is great and is going to be great! We always have to deal with challenges and process things in order to learn from these challenges, but just always know that all it does is prep us for greater things in life!

Love Ty
