Ooh, Girl, You Can Do Whatever You Want

the maboneng precinct 420
Yesterday was not only the perfectly, beautifully tragic end to a great birthday weekend, it was also the day I committed myself to learning every dance routine from the BEYONCE music videos (especially Grown Woman which has become my anthem since my birthday) but more on that when I'm famous.
For the past four days my friends and I have been running around the city, shopping, taking shameless selfies and making new friends all by the gracious wheel of my dad's car. Usually I build my birthday celebrations up too much and I end up crying into a chocolate sponge cake from Woolworths but this year it was everything and more.
For the final birffdaayy weekend turn down, we headed to my favourite place in Joburg, the Maboneng Precinct for lunch at Pata Pata and to enjoy the city (and watch hipsters roll joints - of drugs you guys - because it was 4/20).

I wore my tired old crop top from Mr Price Sport, white mesh pencil skirt from Mr Price and the Pull & Bear running shoes I got from Turkey.

If you're ever in Maboneng, I suggest letting your wallet have a wee cry and visit Pata Pata. It's such a lovely place. When you're on Fox Street, you feel like you're in a different world. Pata Pata has this great artsy, Afrocentric, orange and red lights feel to it. The kind where you sway to Indie jazz and drink Ethiopian coffee. As well as enjoy really good food.

After a really filling lunch, we walked around town to look at clothing (even though almost everything was closed it being Easter Sunday) but serious party vibrations were running about and we couldn't stay because, unfortunately, the party had to end. We did go home to rehearse and film the dance routine in Grown Woman so ha-ha to everyone having a great 4/20.

LOOK! Look at this girl. Her hair, her facial expression, the boy's height, her shirt, her hair, her sunglasses - she's a Nubian goddess. I want to be her.
