Long time..

Dear readers,

Its been a while since my last post, this is due mainly to the fact that I no longer have a camera. I dropped my camera with the lens extended a while back, now the lens is stuck and will no longer extend fully.
If any of the blogs on Nikon and Canon cameras are anything to go by, after trying all the recommended "fixes" with no luck I should just throw the camera away.
I will get a new camera eventually, hopefully one that is a lot more sophisticated than my previous one which really was for taking holiday photos and certainly not for blogging.

Enough about my camera woes, what I wanted to talk about is Arts on Main in the the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg CBD.
I went to the living room, a lounge like cafe this past weekend for a late lunch, and never have I felt the pain of not having a camera more sharply than then. Arts on main is simple gorgeous with the old city feel of the buildings,cute coffee shops, art galleries and boutique stores like LoinClothandAshes all in one place, it is the perfect place for any art lover.

The living room is on the rooftop of one of  the city center buildings, whilst enjoying a Margarita you can also watch the sun setting in the city's sky line.

The only problem is that you have to drive in the cbd midst speeding taxis, possible smash and grabbers and one way streets to get to Arts on Main, but once you are there you realize it is worth it.

To see all the cool stuff that happen at Arts on Main at the Maboneng Precinct such as markets and events visit their website

My boyfriend took some photos with his Samsung phone, he was gracious enough to lend me some for this post.

I will be going back to Arts on Main for a valentines movie screening. If you have nothing to do on V day, see details of the movie screening of Paris Je Taime hosted by Arts on Main.

Thanks for the visit.

The sports jacket..

Hi lovely readers,

This look today is inspired by sports wear. Since I'm not a very sporty person I tried to bring a lady like feel to the look. I was trying to create a contrast between sports wear and my usual high heeled, girl looks. 

This baseball jacket is so comfortable and I really enjoyed wearing it. I paired the jacket with Jeans and pretty heels.

About the look:
- Jacket- Mr Price
- Jeans- Edgars
- Heels- Guess
- Sling bag- Aldo

Full skirt and Bra top

The weather has been uncomfortable hot these days. I wore this outfit on one of the hot days; its a bra top and a knee length full skirt from Selfi.
My best accessory for this look is my hair. This is air dried hair with rollers..I just love how poofy it is.

About the look:
Skirt- Selfi
Bra top- Mr Price
Sling bang- Aldo

This is one of my favorite skirts..its a pencil cut with a front slit and it fits perfectly on my body. It is made from very light cotton and a fun multi African print. I wore the skirt with a simple white vest and a gorgeous Swarovski necklace.

I added these multi -color heels that were a gift from fellow blogger and fashion designer Faeeza Khan. These heels are easy wearing and because they are not too high, they are perfect for daytime wear.

Thank you again Faeeza, I can't wait to have more fun with these shoes.

About the look:
- Skirt- Loin Cloth and Ashes
- Vest- Forever New
- Heels- Gift
- Bag- Sissy Boy

New year's day picnic

Happy New Year all. This is the year to make our dreams a reality. I hope you entered the the new year on a high note.
I had a low key new year's eve with my boyfriend..dinner, lots of wine nothing too hectic. I'll post pics later, I'm struggling with downloading them from the camera.

I wore this outfit on new years day for a picnic at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. It was a hot and lovely day until that all suddenly changed and we got seriously rained on. Before the rain it was a wonderful day of lazing around and sipping champagne.

I was so excited to wear this yellow blouse. Its a recent acquisition from my aunt's thrift store and I paid a ridiculous R20 for it. Its made from chiffon and its buttons go all the way up. Love love love at first site.
The blouse is probably too dressy for a picnic but I just couldn't wait to wear it ( : so I wore it.

I paired the blouse with an A line skirt from Forever New, a Princess Tam Tam scarf and my cute black pumps.

I'll post the new years eve outfit soon.

About the outfit:
- Skirt- Forever New
- Blouse- Thrift store
- Head Scarf- Princess Tam Tam
- Black Pumps- La Boutique
