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.

unbreakable smile

DSC_6955

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 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…

coffee dreams

DSC_7044

I just wanted to share with you just how much I truly love coffee and my dreams that are yet to take place on coffee dates.

DSC_7048 DSC_7050

You know when you wake up and you crave something so badly? Now for me that craving would be coffee. I think I am a coffee addict, oh my word! The best situation for me would be, wearing an over sized shirt to chill outside and admire a beautiful view while sipping on a good cup of coffee just before work. My dream is to have a view just like this one. Be able to walk out of my house and enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the beauty that the day brings 🙂 (Notice, as long as coffee is in the picture, Im pretty much having a good day?). I am not much of a reader, but this view along with a “cup of joe” would definitely put me in a creative mood and inspire me to blog more.

Dreams are only dreams until you put the work in and make them a reality.

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 ❤

Every moment can be captured, don’t ever forget that. Like the saying  “a picture can say thousand words”. It really can hold so much to it so with that being said, capture every moment you can.

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
