Happy New Year

I probably still need a lot of practice on this Diana mini, but this is my latest attempt. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody!

Thursday, December 29, 2011


Merry Christmas to everybody who celebrates it! I have spent my Christmas holiday with my family in Umdhloti, near Durban. It's been too good having my sisters to laugh, chat & play board games with & it is such a treat to be with my parents after not seeing them for six months! The real treasure in it all is how you grow to truly appreciate your family for who they are & who you have become, because of them. I've been swimming in the sea everyday, which is a shocker to those who know me, as they know I am hardly one for the beach sand, never mind the wild sea. Nonetheless, this has been a marvelous vacation & I look forward to starting my new job in the new year. I am armed with new Moleskine diaries to plan my deadlines & to write many lists, also keeping in mind that I'd like to work for Teen Vogue within the next 5 years & I'm the only one who can make that happen for myself, SO tally ho 2012, I got this!

The folder in my brain and on my laptop named: Illustration is growing. Thanks to Pinterest and Miss Mallory of 'Where the Lovely Things Are', I am learning about people who make pretty pictures and developing a taste for what I like. I don't know much about art, I leave that up to The Flatmate, but how marvelous are these works?

No fixxing needed

So delighted in the Urban Outfitters blog for introducing me to Fixxed.   
Now you can be too!

Galiano in the garden

I do adore this Steven Meisel editorial for 2006 December Vogue, The Garden Party. The hair and make up - and those Galliano for Dior carnival gowns in shot 6? Absolutely flawless, right?

It just takes two

Altuzarra Spring 2012 | New York Fashion Week

How lovely is the yellow? 




I have been the fashion intern at Cleo for almost three and a half months now, which means I sort of don't feel like an intern any longer, but rather a part of the team. I pack my brown bag lunches each day, I enjoy laughs with the team; which is honestly a rarely amazing and brilliant bunch. I'm trying (at times with difficulty) to wake up smiling every morning (literally) they say how you begin the first few minutes is an indication of what you're in for. Although, if this is the case, perhaps I should be alternating between the grinning and tossing money in the air? But I do find it really works! I feel so blessed with the opportunities I've been given over the past few months and I'm learning to say Yes! to more. I work with Ayanda, the fashion assistant to put together the upfront fashion pages and this is one of our 'workshop' spreads. I have to brag with this one in your faces, because I put a lot of effort into it and even did a little over-eager-beaver (pre planning meeting) layout of the pages on photoshop. I am very proud of how we made it all come together so nicely and I think it looks really good. Do you? If you like this, you should buy this issue and then every issue of Cleo ever after that. (While you're at it, buy one for your gran too)
