A Language I Want To Understand: L.O.V.E

The honesty of it all is that I would love to hear someone say these words to me or even about me. Everyone wants LOVE to be their favourite colour.
In the words of my best friend Motheo, Love is lovely and War is ugly. Spread LOVE.

Tomorrow We Dine, Drink & Dance

So, tomorrow I'm having dinner with my friends. Some of them were scattered around the country last week when I cut my cake withhe other crazies. Fun times! Fun times!
All my friends will congregate under one roof. My Pretoria childhood friends and the ones I made this side. Good thing they're both wild and crazy.
We are going to have too much fun

So, I'm 25 Right...

My friends are the sweetest...
Okay, so Saturday night I decided fcuk it I'm going to sleep, I need to be up and ready first thing in the morning anyway. I was supposed to meet a friend for breakfast. Well, let's just say those plans took a quick turn when Simone called saying that she's coming to pick me up we need to be out there ushering in my new year, somewhere, somehow but it has to happen. So me being the comrade that I am, I didn't decline, also, I spent the entire day indoors watching movies in bed so I had enough gees. Sims came and we drove around town looking for a spot that wasn't infiltrated by newborns trying to look like video vixens to grab the eyes of boys who think they're in a Hip Hop video so we ended up heading to Kitcheners. Gosh, that place never dissapoints. I love it.
Well, midnight struck and Simone gave a warm tight hug and wished all the chocolates in the world. Okay, maybe not chocolates but all the sweet things ever. She can get sweet sometimes that one :). We danced the night away to some cool tunes, as always with Kitcheners. There was a photographer just walking around snapping people away as music moved us all. I swear Kitcheners is like the UN of music, well to me at least.
Morning came and I was woken up by calls from all the people wishing me a Happy Birthday. My mom called and started giving me a lecture on life and how I am now a big girla nd that I should always give thanks for all the little things in my life. Mom! Mom! Mom, I love her to bits. She's my hero. Yes HERO!
I eventually got out of bed and started cleaning the house. Even on my birthday I do still clean. I love cleaning, its very therapeutic for me, especially when I'm all alone. Of course with music jamming in te background. I was shaking my ass and checking myself out on the - Yep, still got it alright!
My sister dropped by with her boyfriend to wish me Happy Birthday. SHe brought me flowers and a beautiful gift. Kea leboga.
O.C. was heading to my spot so we could go pick up my cake and buy all the other necessary stuff like alcohol, meat and whatever else. She came with Gontse and we journied on to Weltevreden to pick up the cak my dear sister Ingrid had ordered for me. It was sooo delicious and beautiful. I stuffed my friend's faces with it. Hell they did half the job. So we got back and O.C. started hooking up some meat and the drinking started flowing. Music kicked in and so did all my friends. All my dera friends started rolling in and my heart just grew bigger and bigger (don't u dare sing that JR song hmkay).
Everyone having fun while Dawn and Kate were clowns of the day, hahaha! They couldn't put the bowl of chips down. I seriously wonder why. Those two!
We were on the balcony watching the sun set. It was really the best day of my Life. All about me and everyone just happy. Could it have been the vodka? hhmmm...
The sun set and I started realising that these people have to go back to their 'holes'. I had a thought of perhaps holding them all hostage and not letting even one of them leave. (MWAHAHAHAHA) *clears throat*

Okay, so O.C. decided she wants to sing me Happy Birthday...yeah she has the voice alright. Everyone sang and said their thoughts on me as a friend. I loved it. They bring all the good they said about me out of me. Real talk. Jermaine also bought me beautiful sunflowers :)
I made all of them take as much cake as possible because I know how I can get with it, plus it was too big to fit in our fridge. Did I mention the 2 was a chocolate and the 5 a vanilla?!? Yep, that's my sis for you.
Okay, my hands are getting tired from typing, so to wrap it up. Thank you to all my beloved angels we call friends, I love and respect each and everyone of you, even to those that weren't there. Its all LOVE with me.
Here's to many more years to come. We'll party until the walking-stick can't take it no more. As I always say, Life is for the living.

Day & Night: Let's Go Boogy By The Water: RJD2

How awesome?
This is where RJD2 was performing in 2007. Its in Europe somewhere. Can you imagine partying to such a view?!? I would feel safe merely because I'd be far away from the DJ deck...just in case something happened.
Yes! Yes! Yes! you figured it out, I can't swim okay. Its a long story ;)
So yeah, I think its only fair for one to party at such a venue before our lives touch down.
Go on shake ur booty booty!

Phuck Me: Balenciaga U Devil

Plastic aquamarine, mahogany crocodile, stacks of colorful marbley prints, orthopedic looking platform attachment & foam pads...its a shoe of the future! Beautiful.

Honestly, what's there to be said? Huh? Exactly, nothing!

Yeah, well these are Balenciaga's, there you go.

I feel a heart attack coming my way!

Spent The Day With My Boys: Hendrix, Kuti & Def

I've decided to stop saying that I love Music because that's played out in my world. I've BEEN loving Music and what I have with Music now, words don't carry enough weight to express it all.
Anywho! I spent my entire day listening to these legends and stumbled across a track Mos Def did with Femi Kuti, titled Do Your Best and it is the best, well fo rme instead.
I hopped around different tracks and not just listening to one album or artist at a go. I could pick up similar sounds her and there but then again, it could just be me ye!
I have a huge crush on a dead man, Jimi Hendrix.

When Opportunity Strikes - Stay Ready

George is a friend I met through another friend, so yeah, George is my friend...

Anywho, GG (Gorgeous George) approached me last week asking where I am with my passion for fashion and I started beating about the bush until he put the offer on the table laying down exactly what it is I can assist him and his team with. I was happy with what we spoke about and my heart immediately filled with happiness. I decided this was my time to shine and use each and every opportunity I can get to make sure my duties are met and that I grow from this platform.

clmagazine: contributor

I doubt George understands the meaning of this opportunity and it'll never slip my mind. I'm trully grateful, especially considering the fact that I do not have any form experience but the burning passion.

So, as I alwasy say, Luck bestows itself on ready minds, STAY READY!

I'm lucky!

Snap: Did You See What Lee-Roy Did To Me

Lee-Roy, one of the young talents in our country took these shots for his 100th album and I was honoured to be a part of this historical experience. It was cool. He hired out club INC in Braamfontein and had props for us to try on. All I took from the props was the hat and the rest I came geared up in.
The attitude I had the minute I stepped on that stage was too much for me to try hide or rather for Lee-Roy to not capture on his lenses. I got on stage and 3 seconds later he had his shot and I had to step off. I wanted to do so much more but time wasn't on our side.

Have You Seen My New Hair?
