So often you find designers mimicing other designers one often finds yourself thinking you've seen something exactly similar before.This wasn't the case with AFI. African designers continue to surprise me. From adventurous accesories to bold statement shapes and cuts. I love the authenticity of the designs and the flattering silhouettes. Check the other designers out on www.afisa.co.za/

Its Womens Month. Think thats a valid reason for me to come out of my blogtirement.
I wish my reason was that I was simply busy but lets not make excuses.I am back and thanks to the followers. I want to fill you in on where I am right now- but first lets catch up like a long lost friend, I'll hope I can fill you in on what's been happening.
Here are some pictures from My Graduation Soiree. Many a stressed night of planning and it turned out beautiful, There were many friends + family that came through. I just chose a few pictures with my bff and my uncles. We had ballerina's come into Kanye West's runaway- I know I am quite theatrical and I invisioned the whole thing it turned out perfect.
Happy Women's Day to those in SA!

Quelqu’un M’a Dit

                                On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand-chose

                                Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses

                                    On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud

                                          Que de nos chagrins il s'en fait des manteaux

So, the song in the midst the pictures is by the French presidents wife, Carla Bruni. And excuse my french..but its a cute love song the title means " Someone told me". The few words basically say I am told that our liuves are not worth much. It  passes in an instant, like wilting roses. I was told that time that passes is like a bastard that cloaks himself in our sorrow/grief... Its a really sweet song.
I don't mean to make you take a notebook and look back and find a sense of solitude where you are alone with your thoughts and all that deep ish. Just to grab life by the horns and conquer the bull.

In the past few weeks, I went to Zambia for a wedding. I got the ELLE internship starting in June (yay). I had a huge graduation party thrown for me, I stopped and counted my blessings.

What has happened to make you look back and make you thankful for love/life/happiness?

Outfit : Black poofy skirt (yde), Black pumps (zoom), black net hat, black top (krush culture).
ps: I dyed my hair, yah, my actual hair... love the change. What do you think?

Hey lovelies!!!!!!!!It's been some time. For those,like me, who celebrate Easter...Hope it was blessed. For those of you that celebrate something else or don't celebrate it at all, I wish this time was relaxing and ur well rested :). I am a sucker for finding treasures that people will disregard. I love the compliment u get when u rock something that would have otherwise been considered 'ugly' or 'unfashionable'. You see, for me, I have re-established what beauty is, beauty is that moment, even if it was a split second, of connecting or  captivation that won't go away-it lasts in your memory for ever...lol. Ok, i'm exaggerating...but it makes an impact. If u know what I mean!!! I always read ur suggestions, comments that make me smile like a shy school girl with the biggest crush,and I really appreciate it A LOT!!!!! Keep 'em rolling. If u want me to chec out a blog or read something..pleasure..don't feel shy, we are friends....VIRTUALLY...lol.

Love u
