September.

Hey hey!

HAPPY SPRING DAY, lovers! Well, if you're in the Southern hemisphere lol. I didn't really think that title through....

But it's back to work today and I don't know about you but I've been getting into a bit of a slump lately..could be the South African winter or the wierd time of year in between having steam left from the start and being excited for the end-year holidays. People kinda just feel...limp, you know?

Well, I had one of those weeks and surprise surprise, all around me was a ridiculous cold front from goodness knows where.
 
(stolen from a friend's Facebook page LOL!)

But I found a solution! Some visual inspiration from tumblr, pinterest and my favourite blogs. You could call it a little window-shopping. 
Because it's online. 
From the windows on my computer screen.

HA! :D

First up, World of Glamour SA

An online clothing and shoe store, website with fun interviews and beauty advice and a few Port Elizabeth-based events on the way. World of Glamour is back from hiatus and ready for action! Check out some of my fave pieces:

Point of Impact dress- got my eye on this one!!


'Forgive You Never' bikini in Green and Orange


Got me ready for summer!! Check them out here:

Next, They All Hate Us

All I can say about this site is; greatest mood-board there has ever been!! From street-style to fashion editorials and a little sparky humour, They All Hate Us makes me smile every day. I can barely keep up with the posts, I might just take a night soon to take it in with some vino in hand!



Literally so much yum I could hardly choose ones to show you! PLUS they've got a fashion and beauty shop on the website.


Also, as part of my other life..research for a Sophiatown-themed ball I'm helping plan for a uni society.

The swing capital of 1940's South Africa, this Johannesburg suburb was host to Mzansi's own Harlem Renaissance- music, dance, parties, tweed, hats, just general fabulous. If you can't find me at any point during this month look in vintage stores around Port Elizabeth, I'll be looking for my Miriam Makeba swag!


Miriam Makeba. Baaaabe!




Last but not least, I've decided to jump on the Gratitude Challenge bandwagon.

Perhaps a little late, but anyway. Every day as soon as I wake up, I plan on writing down one thing I'm generally grateful for and/or one thing I love about living in South Africa for the coming month. I feel good vibrations following me already ;)

One thing I'm most certainly grateful for is the long list of you all who have supported me and voted in the Fresh Faces modelling contest. THANK YOU so much!
There's still about a month to go so please vote every day and share the link as much as you can.


Seriously thank you a hundred times over. One love and if I can do anything to help make one of your dreams come true like you're helping me, tell me.

Bisoux,

J.
