Can We Try Again?

Woolworths thermal vest, black Identity dress and Miss Signature Plum lipstick

Identity leopard print and black bow heels and Nike black ankle socks

Identity ring, Diva watch, Mr Price metallic bracelets and Guess clutch purse
I was trying to think of a new way to wear some of my old clothes, seeing as that I'm not getting any money soon for shopping, and the November issue of Glamour magazine gave me the idea to wear one of my thermals under that Identity LBD.
It's always been one of my favourite dresses but having had worn it to the first 012 Hall of Fame Awards last year it had to collect dust in the far end of my wardrobe. I hate being seen in the same thing more than once.

Yours truly,

I Hope You Get Your Just Desserts

If life only came down to great shoes and rich pastries, I think I would be what you'd call "consistently going after the dream" and "eternally hungry." Which is to say nothing excites me more than wonderfully, creatively and mind-bogging made desserts. I'm sure we've all been around We Heart It and seen the millions of Tumblr blogs (check out mine: Glitter Daiquiri) and ooh'd at the rainbow cupcakes with swirling icing, the cakes in the shapes of shoes, lip-glosses and Sesame Street characters, we've aah'd at the colourful macaroons, chocolate waterfalls and Oreo creme-somethings.
No wonder obesity is on the rise. I get a tooth ache every time I log onto my computer.
But for me, it's not even about what's going to dance on my taste buds and make me die a little inside when I step onto the scale -OK, it's a little bit a lot about that- it's also about the work that goes into getting these desserts perfect and fluffy and rich. It's about the creativeness and ingenuity and backwards thinking that goes behind  princess carriages and race track cakes. I think bakers and pastry chefs are one of the most practical left-side brained people out there, even if making people fat isn't too practical.

But for now, just hand me another slice of that tart.
Yours truly,

They Say They Buy on eBay, Baby, Why is They Frontin'?

OK, I don't know any girl in South Africa who doesn't own a thing from Mr. Price. I do, however, know that a large percent of the under twenty-five female population's wardrobe consists mostly of Mr. Price merchandise. Which makes shopping there really hard. Any Mr. Price in a very frequented mall is often flooded everyday with girls trying to buy the hottest skirts, heels and shorts before anyone else which can make finding new things in your size (there are a lot of Smalls, size 5's and pants size 28's for heaven's sake) really hard.
That's why Mr. Price Online is a gift from the great heavens. Gone are the days of going rack, through rack, through rack, praying to find something that half the school won't own. With a couple of clicks and a R 35,00 shipping cost, great clothes in a snap.
I just bought a multipack of stud earrings, false eyelashes that I just couldn't scroll away from, a spike bangle pack in gold and pinks, a zebra print purse with a cute pink bow, a magenta skater skirt, a black lace bandeau, blue sequined bodycon mini, a black peplum skirt and that teal blue shirt is from Mr. Price Sport (also another great place to shop for trainers, yoga pants and gym shorts at great prices).

Nothing is more fulfilling than online shopping. Trust me.
