Update By Me. Cape Town. New Year

I have not done a blog post in a while, and the reason for that is just life. Things have been insane, as always.

The good news is that everything is well, and I am super happy. So much has happened, and one thing is for sure, 2016 is going to be an amazing year! First of all, and probably the most important thing to have happened is that I have met someone special. Life has been and is great, and being able to share my life's experiences with someone special is all I could ever want out of life... I met my partner about 6 years ago in actual fact, it was during the Pink Loerie in Knysna, South Africa. We became friends and stayed in touch with each other the last few years, but we never really hit it off. 

There were a few times that we spent time together, but that was about it. And now, all these years later, we hit it off. He is a great guy, and everything is so easy with him. He makes me smile and laugh and makes me feel amazing!

Then, on top of that, I decided to resign from my job last year so that I could focus on the development and launch of my underwear brand. This has been something that I have been working on and looking forward to for over a year now. With that said, it was not an easy decision, and it has been extremely hard work. The launch is around the corner, and soon all that hard work will pay off. I am looking forward to you guys seeing it!

Every year, Cape Town plays host to models from all over the world for what they call season. Season starts in Summer here and runs from October through to March the following year. It is when all the production companies come and film major commercials here because the weather is so good and it is more affordable for them. Anyways, I have been focusing on season as well, and so far so good.

I am also working on launching an e-commerce site, but that is all still hush hush... Just know that it is going to be exciting, fresh and that you will love it.

Till next time, cheerios!

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
