Auld Lang Syne…..


….and so the new year is upon us…. Some people, habits, things… will be on a pile in the past… new beginnings?... we make promises of exercise, healthy eating, more culture, no negativity… the world comes together on this date with one common interest…hope for a better place.….this new time to better ourselves and evolve more rounded…. Don’t make the same mistakes….A wiser, more conscience me and you……big promises…… however…. We know this all too well… we have been here before….30 days will pass and old habits will be anew again…. And so a promise is a comfort too a fool…. never sounds more poignant….this new year…. my personal ambitions will be things that will come easy….. no pressure….. I want to flow… will you join me?.... too meet more strangers, give hugs like it was my last, love harder than last year, embrace wonderful eye opening things of new, and relish that lessons of the past will be clear and learned..….and my hope is that everyone feels the same!...... Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!!!

Time of year...


.......and so the season is upon us…

I would like to wish every single one of you the most glorious xmas filled with lots of love and happiness….
Please spare a thought for anyone that you know that may be alone for the holidays…
Take the time to reach out and offer some love and support…. Young or old, regardless of how wonderful xmas can be for some… for others it can be the most loneliest time of year….We all have extra food and leftovers... whilst your going on your post xmas supper walk…. Pack a little hamper of food with you, I am sure you will past someone in need….. Or visit an elderly neighbor you may know that is alone or that young person that for whatever reason is away from their family.

I am sending loving vibes to each and everyone of you!

Happy Holidays!!!

This Is Me......



I strive everyday to express the love I encompass within me….. I am loving and kind…. I do not judge or envy and I truly do love thy neighbor…..I am always happy for the success of others and I live to encourage those who see my successes….. I have friends from all over the world sharing different cultures and creed……….. we celebrate each other and all our individual teachings… may they be ‘old wives tales’.. or anecdotes……we learn from each other, support each other and we love one another like we all came from the same womb….. I love hard and I am extremely loyal………... I am strong…. but equally sensitive… I have compassion and always feel the need to help….. This is me. I am not South African… but I am a global child of Nelson Mandela…. Every breath I take it will be too continue to embellish my heart with his teachings, too do onto others as I would like too be done too me….. when that is not reciprocated…. I will practice forgiveness…. For that is the legacy he left behind.
I dedicate this post too…the most gracious survivor I have ever known of…. And the greatest leader of my time… if not of all time..…. ‘Madiba’… will live on… forever in my heart.xx

Heroes....


For me, Alexander McQueen was to fashion what Dali was to art……both had the extreme ability of being able to bring their personal demons and nightmares to their craft…. artistic in a way where the piece tells a story…. Its dark and you see it……… but the horror is removed and replaced with a surreal beauty……Lusted after by many…. McQueen’s wearable art………. is timeless………..its the piece I go too when I want to add that extra….. je ne sais quoi’….. the savior from bland and ordinary  …………Some will call them statement pieces… I call them heroes…

Malibu


My spirit belongs to New York... and I have given my heart to Europe….. but Malibu has a rhythm that is working hard on seducing my mind….

Blue Haze....


My love for black and my desires for gray will always be there….. but I also have a ‘thing’ for….. blue…… not just any blue…. I like it to assault me with a depth of color… not  bright… but strong… and texture… how I love it…. A blue suede jacket….. amour…. But here’s the thing….. it just doesn’t suit me (a blue suede jacket).... I can’t rock it like it should be rocked…. I love it… but it doesn’t love me…. Just because its my size and I love the cut and texture and color…. Doesn’t mean its for me… there are other pieces I love.…. but it’s the same disagreeable relationship….and so I accept that…. Its not about a lack of creativity …. Its more about knowing what suits me and what I feel comfortable in....... If I wear something that is not really for me… I feel like it’s not mine…. You know, like its borrowed…. Someone else’s…. And it will hang off me like it belonged to my cool bff who can rock anything…. Funny thing is… she will disagree and she would say 'Q I love that on you, I could never rock that…… but If I am not ‘feeling’ it… it will hang off me like ‘shame’……  so what’s the compromise?....I stick to the angels I know and build from there… so I rock it in small dose’s…. ahhh, that’s better…… so not a blue suede jacket… …but maybe some shoes?.....
