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.

That is my story of my first tattoo, can’t wait to tell you the next ❤

unbreakable smile

There is this song “Unbreakable smile by Tori Kelly” and I just love it. You see there are gonna be some people that want you to do this:

“You see me hanging with my fam, but that don’t mean I’m living in a bubble
You’ll find me at church, but that don’t mean I can’t cause trouble
Stir up a little scene ’cause isn’t that what you want?
For me to mess up, so you can dress up some story”

And then this is what I would say and probably laugh afterwards:

“You’ll say that I’m naïve, like I don’t have a past,
You’re the one being deceived, I see right behind the mask
Tryna to stir me up and get me mad
I smile because happiness is all I have”

This is what it basically comes down to, choose the friends that will put you in your place for your good and not theirs, those who actually want to see you succeed, strive to have a great laugh everyday and have a  silly fight but nothing a random “brain fart” can’t work out, a friend that will have you back even when they don’t have too and finally sometimes you have to be that friend for others or you could just be living for yourself or end up alone…

Truly find the ones who give you that Unbreakable smile 😀

I have come to love this South African brand  – DutchAfro. If you have not heard of them you are clearly missing out!!! Plain, printed, long or short Tees are a must have. My sister and I did a shoot with some of the Tees sold at markets and online, here are some of them.

Long Tees – this can be worn with anything. Leggings, ripped jeans and for those hot summer days slip on a tight shorts to show off those legs.

Crew necks in cream and yellow – we just added a little twist, tucking them in to create a different style of wearing a normal T. If the T is plain add some detail with a printed shorts or skirt to stand out.

Printed Vest – this is my favourite, not only do I love the print but the colour too, pair it with a daring white pants or shorts and you will be the talk of the town.

DutchAfro is not only an amazing company but the feel of the clothing is amazing, hugs your body and can be worn all day without a sweat. Great choices goes into the fabric and each item made.

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 ❤

There are so many fun places to take pictures in town and this day we kinda just went crazy. I would just sit or stand in the middle of nowhere and it just worked out. I really do miss modelling and if I had the opportunity to do it again I would do it in a heartbeat ❤

I know that I am not the skinniest girl on the planet but if I am not gonna think “God made me beautiful” then no-one else will, so I became just a touch brave and rocked a high-waisted jeans and crop top.

I have been looking for a High-waisted jeans for about a year now but not just any jeans. The perfect one. A jeans with no extra piece stuck onto the jeans or to many buttons, I can be fussy with clothes but no-one buys something they don’t like just because. When I walked into Mr price I wanted to buy all that was on the hanger but there was only one in my size #can’tdeal but I made sure no-one else was going to get that jeans that day. It has become my favourite jeans yet. I was very daring and tried it one with a crop top that I would never wear out but put on my brave face and said “tiff you are not naked at all, yes there is some skin showing but if this doesn’t workout then you don’t have to wear it again.” To be honest I felt like I needed to just come out of my shell and take a leap. It is different if I was wearing a short skirt with my tummy wide open, I will never be able to do that lol. There are some really cute crop tops that show no skin if you rock it with something high-waisted, so lets get brave together. My mom had bought this lace jacket and I have been trying to steal it from her cupboard and kinda never return it but I haven’t gotten it right. I asked if I could wear it and immediately she said ” you better return it.” I paired with this look to have a different texture to the look and it was pretty hot. I hate sweating and this was just perfect for the weather 🙂 I really can’t wait to wear it again, summer you may come now. My heels are the most comfy and can make any look more glam. I have always wanted some to look good but not be uncomfortable at the same time and there are so much wedges in stores that you can find exactly why you want and rock it “comfy” he he. I got these on sale at Cotton on and just knew I was going to love them. I have been looking for a suede black heel for a while and when these were R100, I jumped to the till. I’m sure you guys all know that feeling #blushing

Shop till you drop with the great sales, I will see you all there.
