I love, love Mr Price not only are their clothes affordable but they are stylish as well. They are always up to date when it comes to the latest trends. I don't always shop there because I like to mix and match clothing from different places, but most of my clothes to come from Mr Price. Here is their January Fashion Trend Alert!

Tea is a cup of life

I enjoy drinking tea and coffee but mostly tea. The aroma and the taste really tickles my taste buds...It is Truly Amazing! Teamed up with a warm blanket or a movie this is:

Heaven in a cup!

When I am not enjoying my cup of peppermint, I am having a secret affair with Five Roses Green Tea Lemon and Lime.

 Stopped these mugs at @home and I had to have them. They are absolutely adorable, the more the merrier the Tea and Coffee!

This reminds me of...


A Bear Called Paddington (Paddington Bear)

by Michael Bond, Peggy Fortnum (Illustrator)

Mr. and Mrs. Brown first met Paddington—a most endearing bear from Darkest Peru—on a railway platform in London. A sign hanging around his neck said, "Please look after this bear. Thank you" So that is just what they did.
From the very first night when he attempted his first bath and ended up nearly flooding the house, Paddington was seldom far from imminent disaster. Jonathan and Judy were delighted with this havoc and even Mr. and Mrs. Brown had to admit that life seemed to be more filled with adventure when there was a bear in the house.



I also got these mugs, its a pity they don't remind me of a book or a childhood character. What they do remind me of is that I am a I a free spirit, a woman, a fashionista and a lover.

Happy tea drinking friends!

Fashion Friday

I was ready to put down my white canvas Mr price shoe on shopping! I had promised myself that this week I would step foot into a clothing store. I was going to fight temptation, but who am I kidding no one can resist this: 

It was love at first sight.
I have always wanted a pocket skirt and what I love about this one is the dark shade and the buttons PRETTY.
I want one in navy blue.
Lovely lace back.
I know the perfect event to wear this out lace lace lace.
A girl can never have enough black pumps, I want more!!! No I need MORE!!!
One word comes to mind:Summer!
I got all of these lovely outfits from Mr Price, happy shopping friends!

You might be wondering what happened to the colour? well the reason is because in a few weeks time I will be attending a friends 21st and the theme is black and white so taa daa!

When Words Are Not Enough

Took this picture on a night out, the place we went to has an area outside where people and dance under the night sky while enjoying drinks with friends, looks like there is more than one moon. It’s so simple yet so beautiful.
My friend Catherine ( took this picture during a trip to the Eastern Cape I think it is so stunning. SPEECHLESS!!!

Happi Happi

The aftermath of the weekend past is still visible on everyone faces. Their faces are glowing with hope and determination to make this year the year of change and growth, however my glow is flickering and about to go from this glow to this blinding light (smiling ear to ear). New years eve was great! I went to a friend of a friends house the company, food and the wine was an excellent way to spend the final hours of 2010.

Ten seconds before the count down everyone was scrunching around for the remote and their watches... too funny. Ten seconds away from 2011 I started reflecting on what a great year it has been. I made new friends and lost some who I thought were dear to me. I found myself and grew to like myself from my curves, my hair down to my chocolate skin. I opened up about certain things and learnt that I will always have people that I can trust and share my feelings and struggles with. I re-discover my love for poetry ,art, photography, music and the simplicity of life... I was happy.

I was then snap back into reality when everyone started dancing and cheering, then out of no where someone suggested that it would be a great idea to walk from Parkhurst to Greenside and continue the partying at Mama Thembos Shebeen. We all said YES to that... WHY? I really don't know so we set off and went partying some of us ran while others jogged, I decided to walk because I couldn't run after a couple of wine glasses...Hahaha I really need to go back to the gym and get fit again...bleh!!!

All in all it was a well spent new years, I enjoyed myself and love every moment of it.

Hello 2011, its a pleasure to meet you!
