Life is what happens to you well your busy making other plans

Today I quote the words of the legendary Mr John Lennon. This phrase has stuck with me for quite sometime as I believe it to be very true. Life has taken an unexpected turn of events this past couple of months. I have finally come to terms with my true hopes and dreams. I feel it is final time to shut that little voice in my head telling my I may not succeed or I'm to scared to try. I will no longer let fear stand in my way no more! I am changing my ways. I'm going to try more things and live a little more. I'm looking forward to new beginning and learning new things. 

By bringing forward my dreams to you guys. I feel it as a form of encouragement, since now I've put them out there I have more of a chance of following them. 

They are the following:

  • Join a dance class
  • Go back and study
  • Learn French
  • Make time for creativity 
  • Travel 
  • Design again 
  • Learn how to play an instrument 
  • Blog more!!!! 
I'm sure there are many many other things to add to the list, but for now this list will be my aim to begin with. I am really excited to start this adventure!!!  

Once again I apologise for my absents in the blogging world. I do miss writing on here/ blogging pictures and am going to make a better effort to blog more. There are so many moments that I haven't had a chance to blog about this year, which I was sad about. Fear not though, I have come up with a way to catch you all up! I will be creating a throw back thursday page on a weekly to fortnightly basest to catch every one up and just show you all my adventures as I love to share and take pictures.

I look forward to blogging again

Farewell, my pretties

Time after time

So to me it feels like a century has gone by since my last post. I apologise for my absence, things have been pretty crazy, quiet a lot has happened. I thought I would dedicate this post to the past month or so and fill you in what you guys have missed. I will, however, do a more in depth piece on a few events from this month such as my label Anna & Freud, Supanova and Discount Universe!!!!


 As per usual I have received my monthly vogue. This Prada spread always gets my juices following. I'm such a huge fan on this collection.


 I visited yet another music festival by the name of Golden plains.


 As of a month ago, I have officially launched my own label; Anna & Freud. It is a ladies street wear label that offers one off originals designs with quirky colourful fabrics. I shall fill you in more on another post, feel free to check us out and like us on Facebook. You can find on the link below.


My love for classic movies grows and grows, as per usual. I aim to watch more day by day and fill my brain from amazing classics of the past like the beauty Sinbad and the eye of the tiger.


The final of The Walking Dead has also come. I am quiet sad about this because it doesn't return to our screens until October, and its one of my favourite shows!!! It had quite a phenomenal cliff hanger. Can't wait to see how the gang get themselves out of this one!!!


 I've discovered another crazy and very amazing label who shares the love for colours and Avant Garde design as I do, "Mary Me Jimmy Paul." They're destined for greatness.


 I'm officially 22!!! My birthday was quite a joyous occasion filled with Marilyn Monroe presents and the viewing of Captain America's latest film, The Winter Solider.



I had been dying to wear this amazing embroidered dress from Ishka. Was so excited when the occasion finally arose!

MY GIRLS!!!!! <3

My gal pals and I ready for a night on the town.


I also got a very cool vintage style bike, Star Wars figurines, a mesh bag and an amazing       patchwork/beaded/embroidered pillow from Ishka. I was quite spoilt. 


 Oh man Chris Evans, what a hunk! <3


Discount universe brought out a new collection which shocked the world! It is truly amazing. So much creativity, love, colour and just plain awesomeness went into this collection.


 I attended Supanova once again. It was amazing as per usual. Here is a photo of me and my Precious.


I finally read the book of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as I have always wanted too!


I discovered yet another amazing label, Nympha sin city their latest collection and boy it really is a Sin to not share it to the world!!!


I was a good enough girl this year for the easter bunny to visit as you can see from the picture. I had a lovely day with the family and played checkers for the first time versing myself. Who knew you could lose to yourself. 



And last but not least, my yearly tradition on holding a Charmed marathon starting season 1 all the way to season 8.

That my pretties, is what you've missed out on the past month. I hope you enjoy the catch up. I look forward to writing more through on the pieces I've talked about above and showing you all the amazing imagery. I aim to try and stay up to date now, finger crossed. 
But for now, remember,

"Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life".

On the catwalk

"Everyday is a fashion show and the world is the runway"
This years fashion week was hosted by
Virgin Airline. 
Which made it known as VAMFF.
Runway 7 was the show to be at presented by the magazine Shop and graced by the presents of  Shakuhaci, Secret South, Alice McCall, Macgraw, Limedrop and Nevenka.
The night started with a turn of events since my friend and I's tickets were brought last minute, our seats were at least 10 rows from the front. Just before the show started a nice lady who worked at the event took us to some spare seats second row from the front. This was a spectacular view my friend and I were very grateful!! The show was filled with amazing looks. From what I gathered from the assortment of each label's collection, patterned fabrics and flashes of bright colours mixed with shades of black and white seemed to be the style for the seasons to come. 

Shakuhaci embraced us with its floral jungle girl vibe with sheer sophistication. Lime drops brought us an assortment of pastel infushion trend which sported a chic business women do. The floral red number  little number from Secret South sure was one to impress.Those crisp wind brim hats and we can forget the plastic visors. I adored mostly the purple lilac chiffon dress. The fabric; how it draped, the way the model walked was stunning. Alice McCall never ceases to let me down. This season they brought us a collection inspired by none other than NEW YORK NEW YORK. My most favourite piece of the night was the New York city top and skirt. I just loved the bright vibrant primary colours and the artwork. The rest of her collection supported bright and fun reds, yellows mixed with white and black to brake up the looks. "I see red, I see red, I see red," said Macgraw. I love the red coat and patterned blazers of leaves. Was a fresh fun look built for that office girl by day or party girl by night. Nevenka's use of crochet with a light weighted fabric was very bohemian and gave a very earth child like vibes. I like the idea of maxi dresses for the colder months. Who said you can't wear dresses this autumn winter any way?!!!

The fashion show proved to be quite excellent as per usual. There's quite a few things that a screaming to get in my wardrobe. Until next march.

For now
