Perspective

slideshowEveryone has read those sayings which try to make you feel bad for wanting, dare I say needing, rest. “Sleep when you’re dead” “You have as many hours in a day as Beyonce”… etc. Thank you instagram/tumblr/pinterest for trying to make me believe that starving myself of rest is a great route to success. Why are we so enthralled by the hustle – what enjoyment can we as able bodied humans gain from reducing our sleep for the sake of ‘success’. How successful are you truly when your health suffers.

Day Dreamer

28

I have this problem with day-dreaming. Even as a child I would sit alone making up my own fictional world – which for some reason has always been more appealing than this one. I tend to live in my head from time to time believing that my fantasies are more riveting than my everyday life. I spend hours in my day thinking up all kinds of scenarios – this may sound unproductive but it’s kind of soothing for me to dream. I am sure my fellow desk-job-day-dreamers out there can relate.  (more…)

Restless

11

I am really happy to only have 6 weeks left before my day job closes up for the summer holidays. My city is summer central with lush white beaches (freezing cold water but we don’t go to the beach to swim), fantastic roadside restaurants, palm tree’s and a south easterly breeze. Basically a piece of heaven on earth! I cannot wait to spend my summer in my incredible home town.  (more…)

Double Denim

 

29

I’m really excited about the Superdry summer 2014 collection available in South Africa at the moment.  A brand priding itself on quality fabrics with a high thread count as well as innovative designs which will last a few washes not just one. What I love most about their design is the simplicity and subtlety of their pieces. from their burn out printed tee’s to their raised prints – the key in their design is attention to detail and top quality fabric. I am truly obsessed with their t-shirt fits and outerwear. Light parka’s for summer are so great with shorts and flops or dressed up with heels of course. Superdry asked me to explore their summer collection and gifted me a few items from the range to play with on BTB.  (more…)
