Back in business!

Helloooooooo my lovelies!
I’m back from my vacation πŸ™‚ I’ve had such a great time!
I travelled to Sweden to surprise my stepmom for her 50th birthday! So I showed up at Arlanda airport in Stockholm and surprised her as the family was about to travel to Barcelona :):) So we spent 5 days in Barcelona, Spain. Loved it – beautiful city ❀

Jeffrey’s Bay

Hey guys :):) Hope you had a fantastic weekend! I had a really nice and relaxing one. On Sunday Ryan and I took Emilio with us to Jeffrey’s Bay. There we met Ryan’s Wolfpack buddy and they had a surf while Emilio and I sat on the beach and took photos πŸ™‚ At first it was freezing but as soon as the sun came out it was just lovely! As they went into the water I started setting up the tripod (hoping to film a bit) and then realized I had lost them. The thing about wetsuits is that they make you look like everybody else haha and when there are like 30 peeps out in the water it’s hard to know who’s who. So I took photos of all the surfers just in case hahaha πŸ˜€
Will def have to get a better lens for the camera so I can zoom in better from far away!

Anyway, just wanted to share some of he photos cause it looks really beautiful πŸ™‚

Black and White outfit

Good morning sweeties πŸ™‚ It is raining here in Port Elizabeth today! So no luck with trying to film Ryan surfing today… The weather just never seems to agree with me filming him. Maybe tomorrow. Got no real plans for today, just taking the day as it comes. Coffee and more coffee to slowly start the day πŸ˜‰ What are you guys up to this weekend?

Here are the black and white versions of the photos inΒ yesterday’s postΒ – what do you think? Do prefer them in black and white or in color?
I love black and white photos ❀ It makes the images more dramatic somehow. But for a proper outfit post I think color photos are better as you can see all the details and ‘get the fullΒ picture’ of the outfit πŸ˜‰

Outfit post

Morning guys πŸ™‚ It’s friday again! Yay :):)
HaveΒ you checked out yesterday’s blog postΒ with my feature in StyleGF mobimag? If you haven’t then please do πŸ˜‰

Here are some more photos from that ‘shoot’ in Central Port Elizabeth with my awesome boyfriend Ryan behind the camera. It was really cool to see some of the art in Central that I haven’t seen before. Its sad that it seems so dangerous to walk around in central PE cause it really is so beautiful. I’m sure there’s tons of exploring there I could do, but would def have to have someone with me just in case πŸ˜‰

The black faux leather shirt from Cotton On is a new favorite of mine! I love the cut and fit. And a black mini skirt is almost always awesome haha. The black top is an old fav from ZARA that I wear with pretty much anything. It’s one of those. The ones you wear until they tear, and then you wear it some more. The shoes are from Luella and I love them. My Chanel bag is one of my favorite things I own. The Electric sunglasses have been stolen from Ryan so many times haha I think I might actually be wearing them more then him πŸ™‚ I am still on the hunt for a great pair of sunglasses for myself though. So bored of all my old ones. Anyway this as a whole is one of my fav outfits! Hope you like it as well πŸ™‚

Late outfit post

Hey guys πŸ™‚

Don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post this outfit from last week haha but here it is!
So I went to Walmer Park to do a bit of shopping now that the sales are on! And as I have said before, I have to wear what ever I buy straight away haha. So the same day I threw on a bunch of my newly scored sales items and went to Stanley Street to have some sushi at Fushin with Taryn πŸ™‚ She’s the one who took all these photos.

The sweat pants are from ZARA – and I love them. I have kept my eye on them for a while but last time I tried them on the fit was really weird… maybe these ones are made differently? Anyway, they are great casual pants or to just rock as regular sweat pants at home πŸ˜‰ The kaftan/top/kimono type looking thing is from Cotton On. What do you call it anyway? The beanie is also from Cotton On, and the bag…The Bag, is from ZARA. I love it – only R499 on sale! It’s the perfect bag for everyday use.

Also wearing a top from YDE and shoes from Luella that I got like a couple of weeks ago, Electric sunglasses and a Michael Kors watch.

So it’s been a few busy days but now I’m back πŸ˜‰ Went to Greenacres today to sort some stuff out and found these lovely little candles at Mr.P. They are perfect for our coffee table. Ryan and I got a new camera yesterday it’s a Nikon D3100 and one of the things I had to sort out at the mall today was the battery – it didn’t work at all. So they have me a new one and I have been busy snapping photos of Emilio the whole afternoon haha. He is crazy photogenic πŸ˜‰

I’m still busy trying to get a hang of how to work the camera haha but I love it!! ❀️I’m gonna film Ryan when he’s surfing as well – pretty excited! πŸ™‚ Take Emilio with to the beach, film a bit, have a picnic..!
Today’s outfit is a lazy, running around kinda outfit.
