“It was the flashing lights, and the noise of the machines, and the loud, loud music, all seeming to refract and contract around her, her eyes widening, her hair swooshing, her slow smile shining. She seemed an actual part of the place – all fun, all joy, all shimmery skittering energy.”
A few weekends ago Carters Steam Fair pulled into town. A unique attraction consisting entering of rare vintage equipment and rides and is believed to be the largest vintage traveling funfair in the world.
We decided to make a day of it and cycled over to the funfair to try out all the rides and stuff our faces with candy floss and hotdogs. I felt like a kid again and it was truly marvellous!
Styling was kept bright, colourful and playful to match our surroundings and Justin opted for a candid approach snapping pics of me when I least expected it.
Colour is a big trend this season and I am loving all the yellows and reds. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your prints and colours – be bold and have fun!

Well that was a lazy weekend.
I got in from Ireland pretty late on Friday night and found myself sleeping in till 12pm on Saturday! That has not happened to me in months, I’m a complete morning person. So with Saturday pretty much being a total write off I lazed in bed all day devouring a new novel, Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. A kind of Girl on the Train meets Devil Wears Prada.
Lazy weekend’s call for “lazy” styling and by lazy styling I mean comfort. Thus the inspo behind today’s look post. Lounging around the house doesn’t have to mean recycling your boyfriends oversized tees or hanging out in your pj’s all weekend.
If I’m staying in for the weekend I always wake up and take a shower, even if I am just going to get straight into bed, helps focus the mind, and I always change into a clean comfortable twin set. This way if someone has to pop over last minute or I need to run down to the store for extra milk and eggs I don’t feel like a complete sloth.
Also my number one “lazy” trick when I don’t feel like wearing make-up is to throw on a pair spectacles. Trust me, works like a charm.

Recently I’ve been staying in the most unbelievable house in Cape Town that I never want to leave. Every morning , as the sun rises, I am greeted with an unobstructed view of the full length of Table Mountain (One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World) and feel, excuse the hashtag, utterly #blessed.
Lately I’ve been feeling uninspired by work and life in general but I think this house may just have ignited my ambition, perseverance and creative juices. Fingers crossed it’s a permanent thing…
When it comes to ease, nothing beats a twinset. Your outfit is already paired together for you and all you got to do is add a pair of shoes and an accessory or two and you good to go because we all know that taking over the World requires our full attention.
Today’s post is a little of a through back and all. I was approached by LOOK Magazine in the UK to style a fashion week look and had to hold onto the images until they had been published in the magazine.
I’m loving the Seventies comeback and my monochrome 70’s rocker outfit encapsulates my personality to a tee. It’s simple with a fashionable “flare”.
These flared, suede pants from SLY010 definitely steal the show so I decided to pair items that complemented the pants rather then overpowering them. The patent boots & thin scarf add a bohemian rock n roll attitude to the overall look.
You can never go wrong with a little black and white.
