I trust all of you reading this are fabulous! I know I’ve been scarce but I’m still around right.
This OOTD was a special one. Its the outfit I wore to Real Promotions Annual National Conference, where I was actually presented with an award for Rising Star! It was most definitely a blast.
So you guys know I have this obsession with River Island! This gorgeous simple yet elegant Off the shoulder dress was super comfortable yet stylish! And It was Black – so thats a bonus. I adore this dress!
I accesorised with a Rose Gold Choker and stud Earrings all from River Island As well. And the stunning brushed Rose Gold Block Heels are from YDE. They were super comfy!
I also used a Coral Clutch which was a gift from my best friend which is from ALDO – I used this just for a touch of colour.
This past month has been somewhat of a rollercoaster. I can’t say I’m complaining about it though. I’ve changed. I’ve not only changed my career, I’ve changed my mindset so basically I changed my whole life in a matter of 2 maybe 3 weeks!
It feels amazing to actually wake up excited, to open your eyes knowing you actually have a plan. You’re probably asking how… I have one word for you! CHANGE!!! Change is no where near easy, but no one has ever said it would be! It’s difficult for most people to change, because it means getting out of your comfort zone, leaving behind old habits and finding good habits, it simply means finally finding out where you are headed – this can be scary! It was scary for me too. It’s only scary because we spend our entire lives underestimating ourselves! We idolise celebs and rich folk for getting to the top, but do we ever try to get there ourselves. (I’m not only taking about riches, I’m talking about knowledge and growth!) Why do we do this?? Why do we make it ok to put ourselves on levels lower than others. What makes the next person better than myself!!?? — The answer to that : ‘NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING makes the next person better!‘
“Love yourself FIRST, so you know what you deserve!”
It’s starts with you as an individual! Maybe theres someone reading this who needs some guidance so I wanted to share with you all how I plan on overcoming these major changes in my life:
Firstly – Make a plan! Set up Goals (Short and long term goals) – If I understand where it is I want to be 3 Months from now or 2 years down the line, I can actually plan what it is I will be doing to achieve those goals!
Secondly – If I am not happy with my current situation , I will do whatever it takes to change this. Put in the time and effort to get to your end goal!
Thirdly! – I’m going to have the time of my life doing all of the above. Have fun doing whatever you planned to do – theres no point in doing something you’re not happy about doing.
Finally – BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! (most important!)
Make sure your goals are big enough to motivate you! Put in the work, get shit done and do whatever you have to! Remember to just be yourself whilst doing all of this!
Today marks one year since I have started my blog, I was able to explore many new avenues and I was able to express my self through this very blog ! Thank you all! I appreciate all the feedback and love I’ve received ! God bless you all! Stay tuned, I’ve got a whole lot more in store! 😘😘😘
Guess who’s back, back again?! Bini’s back! 😂😝 I hope everyone is fab. I hope it hasn’t been as rocky for you as it has been for me. It’s July. A new month, this means new attitude and new outlook.
I loved my outfit today, thought I would share. Although I adore an all black outfit. You can always add a pop of color to your outfits. I went with something very simple but cute.
This yellow knit is from H&M South Africa , the suede black flat pumps as well. I paired it with a brushed black jegging, it’s got a little zip detail on the bottoms – this one is from Woolworths SA. I was super comfy in this outfit, who doesn’t want to be comfy on a cold day.
It means you’re an adult now, it’s no longer time to sit around and just wait for things to happen, it’s time to get out there and get those things done. It means you can now get out into the world , make your own memories, travel the world, meet new people, try new food and just do you the way only you know best.
My wishes weren’t extravagant, I found myself wanting happiness more than anything, wanting memories with people I loved, wanting the great moments to last forever. I found myself wishing to be successful in whatever I put my mind to.
I want to be great, not for anybody else, but for myself, for my sister and for my parents. I want them to be proud. I want to be able to sit back and be proud of myself too.
So if you’re turning 21 this year as well. I wish you all the best. May it be great and everything you’re expecting, no matter what your wishes are, may they be fulfilled.
It hasn’t been an easy ride, the future doesn’t look easy either, but Here’s to turning 21.. 🍾🍾🍾
My birthday outfit was from River Island, it’s a two piece crocheted set, in Black. The crocheted detail was my favorite part of the outfit. I paired it with a frill suede tan peep toe heel. Those have to be my fave shoe right now. I through on some gold accessories and was ready to go! Hope you like. 😘
So, I think it’s safe to say I have officially become a binge blogger. In the next couple of days you all would understand why.
About 2 weeks ago , I visited KrispyKreme , they’re based at the The Zone, in Rosebank. P.S – at 20 something it’s okay to want to eat doughnuts. I got to see the famous Krispy Kreme glaze Curtain and of course The doughnuts were yummy. Definitely makes you feel like a kid again! I will see you soon Krispy Kreme SA (on my cheat days of course!😏). My fav was the Oreo Cookies and Kreme. 🍩Check out their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/krispykremesouthafrica/
If you’re trying to be healthy and you’re looking for something on the lighter side! Try Kauai’s Mexi Bowl. It’s got free range chicken, jalapeños, raw corn, sriracha, quinoa, tortilla chips, tomato salsa and avo. It’s yum and very filling. You could get the same thing in a wrap. Get the coco Mango to go with it and you’re sorted.
And then, in Northmead – Benoni. OnSixth is the name of the restaurant. The food is quite good. They have light and heavy meals to choose from. So this would be a good place to eat at during the day and in the evenings. And they also have a cute setup.
That’s all for now. Remember I am human so feel free to follow me Twitter and Instagram. Also check out my Facebook Page. You can find all the links in my contact page. Blessed weekend to all. I’ll be back soon. 🤗
We’re nearing the end of my 4 Part Summer Essentials Series.
My hair is bleached and sometimes taking care of it becomes unbearable , it’s imperative that you find hair care products that work for you. And that are actually good for your hair. Healthy hair is good looking hair.
So I use Davines, there’s 3 products I currently have, 2 of which are shampoo’s and the other a conditioner.
The MINU Shampoo, is an illuminating protective shampoo for colored hair. It smells lovely and leaves your hair feeling soft unlike other ordinary shampoo’s.
And then I have the NATURAL TECH NOURISHING SHAMPOO, this one is for dehydrated scalp and dry and brittle hair. I love this one because my hair tends to feel brittle now and then. I alternate between the 2 different shampoo’s.
Then this fab conditioner , it’s an ALCHEMIC CONDITIONER, for natural and colored hair. It’s purple in color, smells great, leaves your hair shining. I’d say this is more like a hair mask. But either way it’s works wonders.
All the products mentioned above have been bought at a hair salon, (Carlton Hair). It’s possible that other salons stock Davines products as well.
Hi my lovies! Sorry I’ve been so distant, No need to stress though.. I’m Back! And with a little OOTD for you. This was my Monday look. I know Alittle bright for a Monday, But what the Heck. Festive Season is here!
I did my usual all white . The white Jegging ( I Absolutely adore them, they’re way too comfy – I could practically live in mine), And I used my White Slouchy Tee. Then The Longer Length Sleeveless Blazer, I think this was just the highlight of my outfit.
I think By now its clear that I am a lover of all things white.
I used a tan Sandal. It’s got a little gold buckle detail. Thought it Adds a touch of flare.
Hope you all are great, I’ve missed you all oh so much..
This past Sunday – I made the bold and ballsy decision to chop my hair off.
With it being heavy and very time consuming to maintain I decided to cut
most of it. It’s much lighter, and way easier to take care of. I’ve had
reservations of making it this short but ‘go big or go home right ?’.. As
you know Blonde is not my natural colour and its safe to say that my hair
was not in the greatest of conditions. So It was a much needed hair cut at
the least. Even if I don’t adapt to my new hair cut , atleast my hair grows
I know most of you are reading this post with the idea ‘Ugh, she cut her
hair, whats the big deal …’ To be brutally honest My hair has been my
shield for the past few years, It hid the pain and sadness and all the bad
stuff people had said. It hid my flaws. It hid all that which I didn’t
want people to see.
Although these were ultimately the things that made me who I am today. I
wanted to keep it to myself. I wanted it to be private. And now, I couldn’t
care less what it is that people see in me. I don’t care if they see me for
the imperfect 20 year old I am. It’s okay. There comes a time in Everyone’s
life when you realise that it’s okay to be YOU. It’s okay to have flaws.
It’s all okay.
I have accepted myself for who I really am, And as soon as you start doing
that, everyone around will do the same (don’t get me wrong , you probably
don’t need anyone’s approval). – It’s just nice to be accepted some times.
It was high time that I made some changes in my life. And I’d say I’m off
to a good start.
If you’re somewhat like me and making big plans, good luck , be you and do
it with a smile.
Have a blessed week everyone.
