  • Meet the Browns: How to Lightly Layer

    We are officially in ‘winter’ season, which basically means layering is in for the next few weeks.
    If you’re like me, you probably don’t have winter-friendly clothes and you have to find interesting ways to dress up your summer clothes. It can get a little crazy at times, especially when it’s early in the morning and […]

  • MILITARY GREEN

    What’s in a colour?
    Now, what’s in your favourite colour?
    If you were to ask me, I would say without thinking that green is my favourite colour. I don’t know how and when I came to love this colour. All I know is it’s got me real bad.
    Green to me is like that boy you have a […]

  • How I Come up With My Blog Titles

    I’ve been asked this question before.
    How do you come up with your blog titles?
    To be honest, I don’t have a set formula.
    My blog title is always inspired by the outfit, current mood/mindset, and what is happening around me.
    Most times I look at the outfit I’m about to post and from there I’m able to come […]

  • The Woman I’m Becoming

    The woman I was yesterday, introduced me to the woman I am today; which makes me very excited meeting the woman I’ll become tomorrow.

    Cheers to the woman I’m becoming.
    The woman who has learnt that it is okay to be flawed. It is okay to have imperfections, for therein lies the beauty.

    This woman has realised that […]

  • Broken Telephone

    This statement has been going round, “Without saying your age, name one thing from your childhood.”
    The answers have been eliciting a nostalgic feeling. Memories of days of old, when you had no cares in the world & all you could think of is which team you will be in in a game of ‘bladder’ ‘kati’ […]

  • How Not to Look Boring at Work

    If you’re like most women, dressing to the office can be quite the task. It’s one thing when you need to look sharp a few days of the week and another when it’s on a daily basis, and in a controlled environment.
    Most women tend to opt for the easy way out by investing in dark […]

  • Like We Never Left

    Well, hallo people!
    We are finally back *insert South African accent.*
    It’s been almost a year without blogging but we are now back on track.
    Back like we never left at all.
    Sometimes it’s good and necessary to take some time back, reflect, strategise, rejuvenate, and come back bigger and better.
    This year I want to take you through a […]

  • Hit by The Bug!

    The bug hit again.
    Yea, I know. I’ve become more of a passer-by here. Like I told you in an earlier post, I may disappear but won’t leave. This will always be that home I know I can come back to.
    The break has been necessary, and driven by the fact that I needed to focus on […]

  • Bloom Boldly

    I’m a big proponent of bloom where you’re planted. I feel so many of us are caught up in some sick comparison game where we spend most of our lives looking over our shoulders to see what our peers are doing, at the expense of what we ought to be doing. We have failed to […]
