Those Sweet Moments...

I have been in Cape Town now since November 2013 and the main reason for my move from Johannesburg was for change, obviously but also to be in a more happier place. I did not know what Cape Town would bring when I did move and it was a risk that I took, I did not know if it would bring me happiness or not.

One thing that I am good at is ruffling things up and moving to places that I have never lived before and where I know just about no one. And don't get me wrong, I always have a little bit of fear when making these decisions, but I think the strength in doing so comes from a childhood of moving around the country a lot.

Having attended 2 primary schools and 4 different high schools, I had to learn how to adapt and make new friends quickly. Well, this is something I never mastered at school, but eventually did in my adulthood.

So with that said, my move to Cape Town has brought me many moments of smiles and one thing is for certain, I am more happy here than I have ever been. Its not just the mountain, or being close to the ocean or closer to family but also because of myself! I chose to make things work, and I guess this is something that just comes naturally.

Many of my friends would probably vouch for the fact that I always make big decisions on the spur of the moment, after all I am a firm believer in grabbing the bull by the horns!

Anyway, there have been many sweet moments in Cape Town and the one sweet moment that is never ending is love. Now that might sound cheesy, but so what!

This love that I have come across is one that I treasure and am so grateful for. Someone that I never knew literally just walked into my life and made things seem or not even seem, they just made things better. This guy is like my brother, not in an insest way! Just saying! Wait, let me rather say he is like my best friend, or better yet, he is like my brother, my best friend and partner all in one.

Together we have had many adventures, he has shown me how to live a little with keeping your head screwed on and even though he is a little younger than me he has taught me a lot about life.

All I want to say is thank you, and that I love you and that I am happy with you :0) You make me smile every day and you pick me up and show me the way when I get lost. You are an amazing soul that is loved by so many others. You care, you are kind and you love back. That is all I have ever wanted. I am proud to call you my boyfriend. x

Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Cape Town | July 2014

This week Cape Town will be bustling and hustling with designers, models and fashionistas as the latest trends are showcased at Africa Fashion International's Mercedez Benz Fashion Week.

The one thing I really dig about Fashion Week, besides having to take to the ramp for local designers is that everyone gets dressed up and there is always a feeling of excitement, class and glamour that hangs in the air. What I also like is that for some reason, all the judging and critiquing gets put aside, yeah you check out and rate whatever someone is wearing, it is fashion week after all, but as the fashionistas come out in their masses wearing just about what ever they want there really is not room to judge. Everyone can just really be themselves.

Anyway, this year's theme is Creative Freedom to celebrate the World Design Capital 2014. Shows will run from the 24th to the 26th of July 2014 at the Cape Town Convention Centre. Shows will feature local designers such as Gavin Rajah, KLK CDGT, Stefania Morland, Fabiani and Craig Port as well as some really cool newcomers.
