Roadtrippin’ to a New Year..

I have been procrastinating a lot lately. I’ve been on a two week break and I have been the best sloth yet. No, really. I didn’t know what date it was until it was Christmas then again on New Year’s Eve. It was incredibly beautiful to just be with my family (my mother and sisters, […]

Aging is Not Lost Youth..

So, the dinner that I was a little too excited about blew me away. It was phenomenal and way beyond my expectations. For once, I had an outfit co-ordinated (by myself, of course) with Purity Ring and Oscar & the Wolf as my background music. I arrived 9 minutes late. Fashionably so. My best friend […]

Her Heart was a Secret Garden..

I decided to take a walk. Just before I could take an afternoon nap last Saturday, I stopped myself; I decided to go to the Durban Botanical Gardens. I was an hour late for a meeting that would have been held there and I thought it would be pointless to join the team that late. […]

End of the Affair..

This is quite over due. As I have been travelling about, it has made me even more observant, become a better judge of character and enjoy the company of those that are genuine. The next couple of months are yet to be exciting. Can this year get any better? Yea, I hope so. It’s about […]

Istanbul: View from the Galata Tower and Sultanahmet

As you may have gathered, this was my favourite spot. I stopped by around the vibrant galata tower or walked passed it every day! This time, I decided to give up that 25 TL and take a trip to the top of the tower to see the breathtaking panoramic view of the city. It was […]

Good Samaritan Saturday..

Well, my mother is. I tagged along to help her out. On the 16 May, my mother had her little tea garden stall at a local Flea Market. This was not just any flea market. She was taking part to raise funds for Ningizimu Special School. Ningizimu is a school for children, up to the […]
