Last post from South Africa!

Hello beauties!

The day has dawned. Tomorrow, I'll be here :

Get ready for me Amsterdam, 'coz I'll be seeing you soon enough. Because I've been too excited to sleep, I took a sleeping pill last night. It hit me so hard, I still can't seem to wake up completely. Note to self; take only half a pill tonight, on the plane.

I'll try my best to post something tomorrow. But you should know that I'll probably do my posts (if I have the chance to) in the evenings now, instead of in the mornings, showing you what I got up to during the day.

I'm sitting here with the biggest grin ever on my face as I type this to you. I've never been out of South Africa and the last time I was on a flight, it was to Durban (which was all of half an hour) and I was six years old. Which is why I'm so incredibly excited.

To all of my family and friends, I love you to bits! We'll bring back a lot of stuff and pictures and stories for you, I promise. Liani, thanks for the post yesterday, I miss you already (even if I'll see you tonight.).

Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,

The countdown begins and crazy shoes

Hello beauties!

So, it's almost d-day here in my house. Today is an all over cleaning day, making sure everything is spotless before we leave. Tomorrow is a laundry day extravaganza, and on Wednesday I'm leaving in a jet plane. My stomach is a bundle of butterflies...

You can expect some short posts because of this jumble my life's been plunged into. I'll try to blog as often as possible, loading the pics of my holiday. I'll also try to keep you updated on twitter (that is, if I remember), so if you want updates there, subscribe and like my Facebook page (where the runt of the pics will be uploaded to.)

Crazy shoes. CRAZY SHOES. As in, really, really crazy. And what's worse is that I'd wear some of them. I'm crazy myself, if you haven't gathered as much yet. (:

Whatcha think? Let me know!

Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,

Lady Florence

Hello beauties!

Ever heard of Florence and the Machine? The name might nit ring true to you, but I bet you, you've heard some of her stuff.

Florence Welsh is a work of art, moving, living and breathing. As a singer, she's incredible. As a songwriter, she's a genius. If you like epic sounding music, the kind they use for movie trailers, that leaves you feeling inspired or awed, this is for you. Grand orchestras, resounding drums and Florence's extraordinary vocals makes for some WOW music.

Now, I said you've probably heard some of her music. Cosmic love is viral. Never let me go featured in The Vampire Diaries. Breath of life is the soundtrack for Snow white and the huntsman.

I'm adding the music video's for my favourites, so you can rock into the weekend with me. For the love of music, subscribe to her!!

The last one happens to be the soundtrack of Dragon Age 2, Varric's theme. Love it!!!

Stay beautiful, have an awesome weekend and be kind to animals!

Street art

Hello beauties!

Went to see Step up Revolution last night with Jan, Liani, Franco and Bryce. It was pretty awesome, though not as good as the other three in my opinion. But, I mean, it was still Step up, so it was still amazing.

Street art. This is something you either love or loathe. A lot of people see it as vandalism, and in a sense, they would be right. I would probably be unhappy if someone spray painted the side of my shop as well... That is, if it's not good! :) I personally see this as art, an expression of self. It brings colour, beauty, life and sometimes, something whimsical to the concrete jungle we live in. If anything can make us smile while on our way to work, or make us think, wow, isn't it worthwhile?

Some of these are so good, it would be a crime to remove them. It's obvious that some were commissioned as well. Or at least, I hope someone commissioned artworks from these talented artists. What's your opinion on this? Please, let me know!

If you're out in the Netherlands, please help me out. What's the weather like this time of year? I'll be seeing you next Thursday! :)

Stay beautiful folks and be kind to animals,

What Asian women have taught me about hair and makeup

Hello beauties!

Have you ever noticed how amazing Asian women are when it comes to beauty secrets (and everything else)? They have the ability to completely change their look with a few simple things. They come up with most of the trends we use in the rest of the world. Their hair is always amazing and creative.

These women know something we don't. Maybe it's in the water. :)
