Resolutions;

For 2013, I resolve to post more. GREs and grad school apps took the better of my time, but I'm glad to say it paid off: I've been accepted to London Met Uni for next year waiting to hear back from more. To celebrate, here are some pictures from my holiday trip to Belgium that ends next week when I visit London (and check out my possible new city?) woohoo!























Fun Fringe with Pretty Pink

SO after the week from hell, I thought I deserved a little bit of pampering. Tim's 4th year Pharmacy Ball was Saturday, and my hair needed a lot of work before then, so I went and got a moisturizing treatment and cut at Partner's Hair Salon at Canal Walk. 

As soon as my hair dresser touched my hair she asked if I wanted the treatment and I'm so glad I did. My hair is soft and silky after all the stress it's been through thanks to me (whoops).
I asked for some blended in fringe bangs like Alexa Chung and I adore them (Evan calls it my haircute)! So easy to wear whether I blow dry them out or just brush them. I just need to be a little bit more handy with my hair tools to keep up this look.

On the day of the ball, I definitely needed to use the hairdryer to show off my new fringe, and I pulled it up for the start with a tiny braid on the side (Linda called me a little Swedish Princess when I came out)! I loooooved my hair on Saturday, and of course it felt amazing. 

The theme was Coco Chanel but they decided that after I had already picked my dress and flown 7,000 miles 3 months ago so I stuck with what I brought and I'm very glad - I adore this dress. I wore it for graduation, my grandma's 100 birthday party and to a summer wedding - so versatile. 


I hope you all had a lovely weekend/week and have another wonderful one coming up. Linda and I are going to play tourist on Sunday in Cape Town and take the big red bus tour since neither of us have done it before. I can't wait!

Best. Hair. Ever.

Sorry everyone - I've been so busy this week and last, but finally the day of our big event is here!

After today my life will be far less stressed and I can get back to posting, but until then...

Meet this guy. He has the world's most perfect afro, looks like a young Michael Jackson, taught PJ and me the sign language alphabet and even moonwalked for us.


Needless to say, he made my Saturday night!

Hope you guys are having a far less busy week than I am!
Happy Thursday, and happy almost weekend!

Awards Night

Last Thursday, I got to go to an Awards Ceremony celebrating South Africa's top social entrepreneurs, and while it wasn't how I intended to spend my FNO, it was awesome seeing all of these amazing people get awards to keep funding their projects. 

It was still an amazing night out, with some delicious refreshments, and I even got a little dolled up ;)


I know the pic's a little blurry, but it was the best I could do without being late!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend

How sweet it is

It's been so cold and I've been working so hard recently, that I decided to treat myself to one of life's little delicacies this week. Considering I worked a 12 hour day on Monday and I'm getting paid in nothing more than experience (which can't even by clothes, let alone food...), I feel as though I kind of deserved it.



Yes, that is a real flower. And yes, it did have glitter sprinkled all over it. And even though I'm not getting paid, it was still so worth it.

Just a little climb

Wedneday was Women's Day in South Africa, so we took the day off to go to Silvermine Crags. Check out the view, what a gorgeous day to climb!


Have a great, sunshiney day!
