Short hair, don't care

BARDOT pants
RUBI shoes

Real talk, cutting my hair pixie short after years of putting up with split ends, and a frizzy afro was one of the best decisions i had ever made. I have had elbow length hair for practically all my life, it was becoming my little comfort zone, blanketing me during the winter seasons and it got to a point where I was more terrified of my hair dresser than I was of the dentist. Giving out a little yelp every time a pair of scissors came in sight. But just a secret between us two, I love it it to bits. It feels like a little flouncy skirt around my head bobbing up and down each time i turn my head. Not to mention how insanely healthy it has gone, you know that feeling when you can't stop touching your hair when you leave the hair dressers, thats pretty much the feels you get everyday. So if there s a daring thought thats going through your mind to get it all chopped off, then JUST DO IT!

Lots of love

"My mission in life is not to merely survive, but to thrive and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style" 
- Maya Angelou

Hahah so i may fracture my neck and have it sitting in this same position I have in these photos, because I realised whenever someone tells me to take a photo, my body automatically shifts to this. I am getting a little bit too excited about my optometry courses and anything eye related in general, like a little worm squealing inside me, this is what I wore to a conference for children's and women's eye care. Although the conference was for a lot more mature aged people, I just had to attend it and plus we were given a free 3 course meal so how could I really say no, right? It actually made the perfect excuse to indulge in my field

Lots of love

SHEIKE pants and top; worn as a jumpsuit

"You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breach of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind."

My wardrobe has recently turned in to a sea of black, building up one detail at a time. What I saw once as chic and easy to wear has become so dull, so I made myself a new mission to buy something coloured and patterned every time I am out shopping. It was the greatest mission at first and now its all I buy, and I am so glad I did this. Like this jumpsuit for example; brings back summer in this chilly weather; I adore it to bits.
