Timing…

So I have come to learn that timing is not only such an ass but if not right can really make something beautiful into something completely ugly or just let it slide when it really shouldn’t…

Like for example you wanna buy an apartment/flat, you have all the information and a housemate to live with, funds is not a problem and you just can’t find a place what so ever. Nothing is affordable or you can’t find something of value in the places you have seen, TIMING…

Easy example a guy and girl fall for each other and it would be perfect,When you with each other nothing matters yet work gets in the way, friends and family, responsibilities, work opportunities or even just a simple I don’t think I can see you today is to hectic, TIMING…

You really want to buy a really expensive pair of sneakers but all you can afford at the time is simple pair of flats but if you just waited a few days you would have the money but they only have your size right now and it the last one, TIMING…

You have been trying so hard to get that job at work, you work hard, you do everything that is asked you, go above and beyond, stay extra hours, heals whenever it is needed yet the job just never has a position available, TIMING…

I’m sure I could type up every senorio when timing just isn’t right but that won’t solve anything. It will just get more people anxious and it would be way to much to read! 

Timing is so crazy these days honestly I have learnt so much about being patient (I’m still learning) however sometimes you just have to appreciate the now because in all honesty when the moment is 100% correct you will truly be grateful for the TIME…

I have heard and seen this saying for so many weeks now “No – one can make you happier than yourself” I have sat and thought about it for a while. I mean is has basically been in my face everyday… I have always wanted someone to put a smile on my face but once the smile fades, I’m back to where I started. Instead of just making myself happy.

IMG_1804 IMG_1796

I have always made other people smile and put my issues aside. I have come to learn that if I continue to do that I will basically fade away or just bottle things up way to much and blow up sooner than later. Lately I wake up in the morning and look into the mirror and say “hey beautiful, don’t forget to smile”. It really has helped me a lot. When you smile it makes you feel and look so much more welcoming to others and to yourself at times. Remember your attitude will filter out to people, it can make or break relationships and friendships.

This photo shoot really helped me find me again, be crazy and get away from all the craziness and just believe in myself. Believe that yes my blog might be small but it’s totally for me to be me and I am going to do just that.

Believe in yourself and you will get further than you expect…

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

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

About two months ago, I had quit my job and felt like my season had come to an end with the company. I have had so much free time that I would go shopping on a tight budget. I would get so excited when I could see a  sale sign in store and know I could walk in. YDE has had a sale recently and I had gotten this amazing top with the cutest string detail and not to mention the slit in the back. I tried it on and was like “Yip this is so going in my shopping cart as well as many others”. When I walked out the shop with my new purchase, I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it with. Of course a simple jeans so I could show off the detail on the top and a pair of gorgeous heels to give it a bit of edge. These shoes are not mine but my crazy cousin Miche’s. It really is crazy that basically everyone in my Family wears a 5-6 size shoe. I asked her is I could use it for a shoot just to finish off my look. She said yes 🙂 I loved that the bottom on my shoes were Cork because it matched the colour of my hair, pretty random I know #blush. The flowers on the shoes makes me think of a bunch of flowers wrapped around my feet and super girly. Got to be a little feminine at times. The jeans are plain and just about reach my ankles. It is so easy to wear them with heels or sneakers and not have to roll them up. A statement yet comfy blue jeans is always needed in your closet. A little bun on my head to finish the look and I am ready to go to a wedding, night out with the friends or just a random day in town.

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.
