JACKET SEASON

Jacket season is just around the corner! And I am excited! There are so many good styles and trends that we have seen from all the mystical-fashion-countries of the Northern Hemisphere and I am sure Mr. Zara and his friends all made sure that we will be getting all those beauties this side of the world. I have actually not gone coat shopping yet (I am really hanging onto the last bit of summer as tightly as I can), but with what I have seen in store… I am really proud of my self control that I have not spent…

WINTER CAME EARLY

What’s up with this weather Cape Town? The current Netflix-and-chill weather is a pleasant change to over-heating summer days, but I am just crossing my fingers that it’s not here for good. If so, it’s going to be a long winter… and I suck at wintering. I need heat and sunshine to survive. I’m not gonna lie, though. I liked dusting off some winter clothes and am really excited about the jackets that I have spotted in the shops’ windows! Give me a bulky jacket and you can be sure that I’m hooked. Even though I dread the Cape winter…

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…
