being a bridesmaid

I know there is a saying “always the bridesmaid never the bride” but I have always wanted to be a bridesmaid, there is just something about seeing the bride happy and seeing the journey with the bridal party.

Yes I may be completely crazy and it makes no sense to you, I may be the only person that feels this way but it would be an honour to be in a wedding standing next to the bride supporting her day and not just a number to fill a list or seat.

You see nobody wants to fill a seat, be a number or even just be a shadow in a picture. I have been to a few weddings and to be honest they say “You mean so much to us and that why we wanted you here, We wanna see you in our lives, Grow with you all and Can’t wait to have you all be by our side till the end.” That’s good and all but what it comes down to is yours and their friendship.

I have always seen a bridesmaid as a BEST friend, someone you can count on and will be there through thick and thin, will be sitting with you saying wow we messed up but I really do love you. Someone you can forgive no matter the mess up or no matter the moments you haven’t seen each other but the moments you cherish. I may not have all these traits as I am such an out spoken and straight forward person and pretty much say it like it is, most people can’t deal with that and probably the reason I have never been a bridesmaid. I have been called a BEST friend so many times but I have seen that word thrown out so easily, yet people have never taken the time to actually be one.

So basically my point is I may want to be a bridesmaid and even though I might not get the chance to be one, a girl can always dream.

Ripped jeans is so in at the moment and if you have some old jeans you better get ripping he he. Of course I had matched my ripped jeans with my striped top and its a little bit of a crop top but not completely, if you know what I mean. My boyfriend bought me this stripe top at YDE and it was my first item from him at the store #inlove. I matched it with my nude heels he bought me for our first Christmas together and I love it because it had my two colour that I love (black and nude) with a pop of pink at the bottom. I am not really a pink fan but I have tried to wear some pink for the month of October to support those who have had breast cancer or are suffering with it now. We should always support where we can. My ripped jeans is my one of my favorite jeans to wear right now. I like that its not to loose like a wide cut jeans but also not to tight like a skinny jeans. It was bought ripped but I gave some extra ripped marks just for fun.  These sunnies are the best and I seriously couldn’t wait to but up a post with me wearing them. I went for coffee on Saturday with my boyfriend as we normally do (check out my post “coffee works”) and we had our normal stroll down long street and found ourselves in Kloof street at a surf shop just browsing. I saw this really cool Lion top and really wanted it (in the guys section) but it was just to pricey, so I carried on looking and my boyfriend knowing me all to well shows me where the sun glasses were and I wanted to try on all of them, I’m sure the people in the shop thought I was totally insane but I really didn’t care, like they say try it on and maybe you will fall in love with it!!! Okay I made that up but it’s really true. Very long story short, I really wanted a colour mirrored colour pair, after my beautiful friend Lynne had posted a sunnies post (click on her name and you can see her blog). I finally found the one that I loved and fit me and yes once again my boyfriend bought it for me. I really do love him so much #spoilt blessed with the best.

What was your favorite item given to you by your boyfriend or just a friend??

I am really seeing Stripes all over the places this season and love every second I do. I wanted to try my very old stripe boob tube body suit on and see if it still fits me and I am glad to say “YES” it does. It is something I bought just out of nowhere and really wasn’t sure where I would wear it to. I will wear it out one day, what you guys think?? When I bought my leather skirt, I wanted to wear it on that day and just look crazy with a hoody lol. I love my skirt and yes I do get hot in it but you know what they say “Suffer for Beauty”. My sister had bought this Peter Pan Collar necklace on Superbalist which is an online store,  has different designer items on it. She loved this one, blessed my mom with it and I totally took it. The designer is Gina Laura, have a look and see what you might like. Ohhhh these shoes, okay so I went to my amazing friend Andrea’s 21st (did a post on it a while back called “21 Again” have a look) She had worn these amazing shoes and of course I was like “girl those be looking all sexy, where did you buy them?” Okay it wasn’t exactly like that but I did ask and she told me at China town. I asked her if it was okay if I borrowed them for a day or two just to have a shoot to add to my blog and because she is like the best she said “sure”. I am not really a wedge person but I do think that they are growing on me. The detail on this shoe is so simple, just a pink strip at the back and black suede, gorgeous I tell you, they are so comfy to walk in and can make any look pop. I am not really into big necklaces but I wanted to make a statement. This is plain but yet very in your face. I am really obsessed with gold and black at the moment and just knew that anything gold was meant for this outfit. I’m sure you guys know how much I love my rings and forever21 has some amazing ones at the moment and that means shopping…

coffee works

Most Saturday’s when my boyfriend isn’t playing soccer, we have our coffee dates at Deluxe Coffeeworks in town.

The first time I had heard about this place I was not really into it because I’m not a coffee lover and my boyfriend is, so being the sweet girlfriend that I am he he, I said “sure we can try it out”. We went one day in the week and I had ordered a Flat white which wasn’t my favourite. I then bought myself a Latte and Instantly fall in love with a cup of heaven in my mouth. My boyfriend always has a Flat white and a Bongo or two. A bongo is like a Shot glass of very strong coffee and if you are tired in the morning a shot will wake you up in no time, It has more milk that an espresso though. I tried it and it is just way to much coffee for me, I drink my coffee with half a teaspoon of sugar trying to get to no sugar but a Bongo is just to strong for me.

Jeans – Mr Price   Top – Pink Store    Shoes – Vans    Bag – China Town    Glasses – Spitfire    Earrings – Mr Price    War band  – Hillsong Church

My ripped jeans has a really crazy story. In my family we share clothes or should I say I share my clothes with everyone, so my mom decided that she wanted to wear my jeans one day and she had picked up something of the floor and the jeans had ripped at the knee, I was a bit upset but just rocked it and then the other knee broke when I was jumping during praise and worship at church and now they are my favourite ripped pair of jeans. I do love to make my clothes different to others so thanks mom it worked in my favour. PINK top, wear do I start, last year I was an aupair in Long Island, New York for 7 months and went crazy at all the stores we don’t have. There were 2 stores I would always go into if I had money or not, I’m sure you can guess what they are, Victoria’s Secret and Pink store. I had won a discount voucher at the store and by me loving maroon I went straight to this amazing top which I didn’t pay for. I added some undies to my sale because a girl can never have enough undies (they ended up as gift for my friends and family). Vans, these were my first pair of vans I had gotten. My boyfriend had taken me to the shop one day and asked me to choose a pair of shoes and yes maroon it was. I tried it on, he paid for it and now whenever I wear it he will tell me he loves my shoes. I love him. Accessories that I  have on are simple, my everyday bag from china town, I really need a new one, the earrings I had seen in Mr Price and because I love photography a camera on my ears, I mean yes please. My glasses I love as you guys know summer is almost here. Make sure when you getting yourself a pair of glasses to check the sides, if your finger can go through it’s to big. WAR band, is an awareness our church is running it means WAR Against Rape. If you have heard South Africa’s rape has gone up and our kids are getting raped every day. Let’s stand together and protect our women and children, help those who have been through it and make everyone aware that it is not okay.

Follow the Hearts and you will find the place where coffee warms your heart!!
