The beauty of dressing down

The day you take an hour to dress up, do your hair, manicure your nails, and wear the attitude — will be the day your life will be the most ordinary. ♥ A few years ago, I was all about the colours, the florals, the bright lip, the coral blush and the pink shadow. So, it’s […]

Right time

Better an oops than a what if – Beau Taplin For a long time now I have wanted to write this post – ever since I read this quote gracefully hand-lettered on a toilet seat cover by @stephankunz – ‘Create something today, even if it is shit’. I have spent weeks, sometimes months, ruminating over […]

The WAIT.

There was our time, when we learnt about beauty, boys, sex and everything else worth knowing from our parents, our peers, our books and our social interactions.

#bossbabe

What this post is about: Staying gorgeous on-the-go, whether it’s through traffic, long journeys or appointment hopping. Looking like a gorgeous mess doesn’t happen by accident. Looking perfectly imperfect, finding balance in the chaos and owning the #bossbabe attitude takes careful preparation. I am at my absolute worst when I have to keep up with […]

Humble, with a hint of cayenne

I turn 32 today. And, I’m proud to say that with every passing year I manage to focus on the more positive aspects of my life. The last 3 years have felt like a long gruesome decade (tough pregnancy, baby, moving 3 homes etc etc). But, last year I began this blog, and it brought […]
