CARGO (FT. THE MEETING PLACE)

This past Friday Pierre and I were invited to the opening of the coolest, vibey-est place in Stellenbosch. It’s called The Meeting Place and is situated in Dorp Street, Stellenbosch. The Meeting Place is exactly what Stellenbosch needs at the moment – it is relaxed enough for a good meal (the food is amazing and they do brekkie, lunch, dinner and everything in between) and vibey enough for a lekker kuier with ice cold beer and good wine. Just to give you an idea: They have a DJ booth for the evenings and then for breakfast serve anything from gourmet…

MUSE | XENIA ADONTS

Xenia Adonts is the reason I cut my hair short. I have been following Xenia for a couple of years and always thought she was cool and had good style, but since she cut her hair I am pretty much watching her every move. I know that Xenia cutting her hair wasn’t the reason she caught my attention, it just happens that she SERIOUSLY upped her style (from already being top notch to something that leaves me in awe) at the same time…and now I associate her coolness factor with her short hair. I sometimes just scroll through her feed…

MONOTONE

When in doubt. I wear all black. Haven’t done that in a while though, I guess my brain just gives me these red lights when I think of putting on black clothes when it’s boiling outside. But sometimes I really shouldn’t listen to my brain. A lot of the time, actually. I felt kind of cool in my 10 years old ripped jeans, Pierre’s tee shirt and my worn-out Converse All Stars.  I also like to keep it simple with my hair and accessories. With my clothes being monotone, I feel that literally having no accessories makes just as much of…

TIME FLIES

Every year I am broke by the 15thof February. Because it’s after hell-week. Let me explain to you what I mean by “hell-week”: on the 8this my and Pierre’s anniversary (this year was 5 years), then on the 11this Pierre’s birthday and then we’ve obviously got Valentines day on the 14th. So, it really isn’t hell-week, we just like to call it that because it sounds cooler than like “love-week” or something.  We went to Hermanus for the anniversary part of hell-week. We actually really needed the break from the apartment as we work and live and everything there, so…

BIG CITY LIGHTS

Why is it that it can simultaneously feel like January has been the longest month in the history of time and also like it was Christmas like 2 days ago? This year started with a bang and have been like one constant bang for a month (not sure how my metaphor is, but it will do). Pierre and I had our first ultimate lazy Sunday and I forgot how good it feels starting a Monday actually quite rested. Okay, so I say it was a lazy Sunday, which it was, besides my 16km morning run. I decided on this run…

NEON FLASH

There’s only one thing sweeter than seeing “your order has been shipped” and that is to find something in store that you LOVE and then seeing that it’s on sale. I have to be honest, normally, in-store sales aren’t really my thing. I never really find anything because I tend to get there when all the good stuff has been sold and all that’s left are these masses of clothes, nothing is organized anymore and if I happen to find something I really like, they never have my size! But, last week the stars aligned and I had two luck…

SMALL THINGS THAT MOVED ME THE PAST WHILE

I haven’t done this in a while. I am not even sure if you guys like to see/read it. But, some things I just have to share. Many pretty photos of people wearing pretty things, But, mostly images that made me feel something: Be it inspired, motivated, nostalgic, moved or left in awe. Sometimes words that I find relatable or funny. I just feel that more people should see them. Here they are. I hope you find them as beautiful as I do. This is Kirsty Godso. I have her in each and every of these similar posts. Damn, this…
