WITH A TOUCH OF PINK – ALISE CELEBRATION WEEKEND

It’s not every weekend where you drive around Cape Town in an old vintage convertible with flowers overflowing on the back seat. It does, however, happen when you have just picked up your best friend for her kitchen tea and are on your way to the Belmont Mount Nelson for high tea.

THE BIG CHOP

This weekend has been crazy (good). I have to go fetch this story on Friday where, after trying to grow my hair for ten years (and finally reached the length I wanted), I decided to chop it off.

AND NOW, MY SCHOOL SHIRT

Today I literally wore a school shirt. Yes, like those ones you swear you will never ever pull over your head again as soon as you finish your final exam paper. So, I (an adult) have decided to go buy some Toughees school shirts from Ackermans out of my own free will. Let’s be honest. The quality isn’t great. I…
