misfit – my first tattoo

On the 8th April this year, I decided to take the plunge and got a tattoo… After much deliberation on what to get, how it should look, where it can be placed, the size and of course, if it’s a picture or script. I had finally found EXACTLY what I wanted. This had not taking a few months but a few years!!!

I had finally decided on the word MISFIT and a paw print as I am obsessed with lions of cause.

What the word MISFIT means to me and why I chose it : Do you possibly have a lifetime for me to truly show you what this word could describe and shape who I truly I am?

Probably not so I will try my best to explain how much I love being a MISFIT lol.

All my life I have found myself NOT fitting in with anyone, yes I had my group of friends, yet I always stood out or had some weird way of being noticed. I have had my fair share of trying to fit in, yet found myself losing who I truly I am and I didn’t like that. I don’t think that I fit in with my family, sometimes my friends, my work place or even just when I walk in a crowd. YET that is me, a misfit never wanting to be like everyone else, being who I was truly put on this earth to be. Being able to spot me a mile away cos I’m different in a good way.

With that being said I got the word MISFIT and a paw print on my rib cage as it is the worst place to get a tattoo! As the word has so much meaning and I wanted to show it off. So when you see it you will ask and I get to express a side of myself to you that you may not know as if yet.

What’s funny is that people who know me basically tell me when they see it “YEAH that explains you to the T” I just laugh as I know exactly what they mean.

I think one thing every has asked me is, “oh my word you have a tattoo and then flip was it not sore???” To be honest it is a weird feeling but I think I handled it really well. The closer the lines got to my chest the more pain I felt. The final line I honestly felt like the tattoo artist was about to kill me boobs but it went by so quickly I just bit down and took the pain.

It did take a bit of convincing for my tattoo artist to do my ribs as my first tattoo. They advised most people die half way through as it is one of the worst places to get a tattoo, so I was very proud of myself for going though with it.

I think I have some obsessing with High waisted jeans and I love how it pulls everything together in this look. This jeans just has the right amount of rips and the colour stands out. I paired it with a simple grey crop top and a black kimono I bought at Cotton on. I just love it when you have nothing to wear but yet something to simple looks so good. I added a black wedge to dress up the look, still keeping it simple with a kick. Simple Gold jewellery to spice it up and look more elegant. I think I got right.

Never be scared if can rock a high-waisted short or jeans just do it…

Keep it simple yet elegant and you will have got a great look ❤

I had spent the day in town with my amazing photographer friend Gidion and we just had a walk through the gardens admiring the weather in the Cape Town Gardens. Capturing the moment on camera of course.

I wore my favourite colour at the moment which is “black”. I have always liked the colour black but I feel at the moment its a bit of an obsession he he. I got this jacket from china town and I’m currently on the look out for a new leather jacket, any leather jacket is a go to jacket. It works anytime of the day. I paired it with a jersey from Jay jay’s and was very surprised at how much I have liked so many clothing items at Jay jays. If you haven’t gone to have a look, I promise you, you will leave with at least one item. Of course I wore my skin-tight jeans I can’t live without, hugs me in all the right places and you know when you find the perfect jeans you always wanna wear it??? This is that jeans ❤ if you follow me on Instagram you would know I have been looking for a pair of black boots for a while and I finally found the perfect pair at Cotton on. I walked in, tried them on and wanted to walk out the shop wearing them. I recommend you have a look at Cotton on if you looking for a pair and they having a sale at the moment, which is definitely an added bonus.

My lips just had to make a statement with the amazing “diva” lip colour from MAC cosmetics which I love so much. I can’t wait to get some more lip colours, there are some amazing colours out in store now.

With all these amazing sales I will see you all in the shops pretty soon xxxo God bless

If you haven’t noticed that the weather is getting wet then you are probably in a different part of the world enjoying the sunshine. I kinda like the cold weather gives me a reason to stay in bed all day and nobody can say anything or basically layer my clothes and it will look and feel great.

Basically what you see in these pics is a simple way of layering. The one thing I love about winter in mens wear is the best warm and no1 really wants to buy it, well from the females side. I love this jacket I got from Factorie in the mens section last year and I one of my favourite item to wear in winter. I love the colour because it’s as close to maroon that I could find and afford. I paired it with a simple white shirt buttoned to the top. I feel more comfortable that way and it keeps me warm when I don’t wear a scarf. The jacket is pretty dark so the white would just make my outfit stand out. I pair it with skinny jeans to keep my legs warm and the rest of my look was pretty loose. Some people say “whats the point of rolling up your pants if you are going to freeze” to be honest I really don’t get that cold and I wouldn’t b doing that if it was running #gumboots ha ha. I wore my Vans that are getting so dirty but I can never keep anything white clean. Come to think of it I love wearing white so I need to start. Of course my shoes also add some sense of brightness to this look.

I added some simple accessories to this look, a grey beanie to just keep my head warm but also to protect my fresh hair from the wet air #curlyhairproblems. A silver love necklace that I haven’t worn in ages that I found in a bag I haven’t worn in forever, it pays to spring clean every now and again. This necklace is the cutest little reminder that I am LOVED. I had my nails done by me when I got bored at work one day during load shedding and was behind happy that I had something to do. White really looks great on any colour skin and I would say get a good brand and have some fun with your nail colour. Of course I can’t really go anywhere without a thousand pair of rings on and Cotton on has some really good rings in store. If you looking for some really good silver jewellery at a great price try Ask me to shops website below, supporting local is always best.

For my birthday night I couldn’t wait to wear my Roshe Runners my boyfriend got me. I have become so obsessed with these shoes that I can’t wait to get my next pair. I have loved wearing black since we are going into winter and the colours are getting much darker and of cos it is so sliming. I have always wanted to have a slimming jeans and this one I got from egads hug me in all the right places and I had gotten them on sale. I love when a jeans hold everything in place. I recently got this to at Factorie on sale (also in white). I love that it flows but had a Jt one feel on the back. Only problem this top and having bigger boobs has is finding the right bra. I vote boob tube works best or even the ones you can buy at Cotton on and Factorie. Of cos my birthday is not in summer, so I added a demin jacket to the look. I rolled up the sleeves and to show off my watch and rings. I was bold and wanted to add some gold jewellery of the night. My big chunky rings were a must. I always think if i have to get into a fight, someone might get hurt. I really don’t think I would really get physical. Sticking to the gold look, a simple necklace with black and gold detail just to finish it off. I never really carry a lot of things with me when I got out lately, so my brown detailed bag was perfect for the night. Just added a touch of colour to all the black I was wearing.

I hope you all have fun with your darker colours this winter.

God bless
