New necklace and hair cuff :)

IMG_4583 IMG_4585Untitled..

Hey everyone :) Monday again – even though I don’t exactly work mondays are still kinda boring. Even the weather is boring today. So to cheer myself up I stopped by Woolworths and bought myself a new necklace and a hair cuff. I love the hair cuff – it’s rose gold (obviously not real gold haha) and matches my MK watch ;) Also got a whole bunch of fruits and healthy stuff. Been craving fruit and chocolates lately. Feels like I eat chocolate every day haha and I pretty much do. Dark 75% Lindt is my favorite.. and the mint crisp one. Got a few other things as well like a new mascara, lipgloss, and nail polish – nothing too exciting tho. Now I’m just ‘keeping up with the Kardashians‘ and keeping on looking for a place to live. Relaxing today – have a million things to do tomorrow before it’s time to go back to home affairs and hand in my visa papers. Can’t wait to get it over with! It’s always a mission.
Another cool thing is that my ‘brother’ Christian and his sister (very complicated family haha) might be coming to South Africa next month! Yay :) Nothing booked yet or anything but I’m hoping they will come down to visit.

Zebra print cushions

What a crazy hot day today here in PE! 32 degrees. But where is it always cool? Inside malls. So I went to Greenacres and chilled out for an hour checking out Mr. Price Home and Sheet Street. That’s about it. 2 shops. With all the sales everywhere all the nice stuff is already gone from the clothing shops so why bother even going in haha. Anyway – at Sheet Street I found these cute Zebra print cushions. I bought 3 of them and they seem to be doing fine in their new home hehe :)

Do you like them? I did maybe look a bit safari-like stepping outside this morning. You might get why when you check my lame elevator photo haha:

20130218-144545.jpg I could have used some binoculars to go with the outfit! Even tho it was pretty much just the shorts that made it look safari-ish. Actually the super wrinkled t-shirt has a bit of a ‘I slept in a tent last night wearing this’ feeling to it.

Unexpected shopping results..

The shopping trip to Greenacres ended like it usually does haha I came home with nothing of what I planned to buy. The reason for that is that Greeanacres doesn’t have any of the stuff I want and am looking for. But like most time I came home with a bunch of unplanned buys. Like small surprises to myself haha. I am in love with my new summer shoes from Woolworths, only reason I knew to buy them was because a friend has the same ones but with blue stripes. Also bought 2 pairs of shorts (my wardrobe was lacking in the shorts department) which I very happy about. Both pairs from Abercrombie & Fitch. My star scarf and aviator sunglasses I got at Jay Jay’s, and my chiffon-y type black see-through jacket was the biggest surprise of all considering how much I have been complaining Mr. Price and that’s exactly where I found it haha. I spotted a lot of nice shoes in there as well as workout clothes. Now what I still need is to find more tops. I can sit all day on Pinterest and Fancy and Tumblr and whatnot and think that I will be able to find all that stuff but the truth is that as long as I’m living in Port Elizabeth chances of me actually finding any of those things are very slim. I might have to start doing some online shopping again. Did a lot of that in Sweden ;)

Today’s shopping was ok : ) got there in time to beat the cray cray lines! I’m not really a fan of Mr Price, especially not of their shop in Greenacres, cause they are always so disorganized and packed with people and only have like 2 peeps working. Not a very nice combo – I always feel like running away as soon as I step inside the door. Not saying all their shops are crap, it might be that the ones I’ve been to have been the worst ones. Anyway, I went in and grabbed the stuff, stood in line for 15 minutes, paid and left. But how cute are my new leopard shoes?? : )

I also got a new pair of workout pants from Nike that I love, some new underwear, fluffy slippers, workout t-shirt and a pair of basic black ballerinas. Decided to try a couple of new things as well – Garnier B.B. Cream Miracle Skin Perfector and L’Oréal Collagen Filler for fuller lips. Hard to see any real difference with collagen filler but the B.B. cream made my skin look amazing : )

I guess that’s also hard to see in the photo haha. And yes – I am wearing my new hoodie today again haha. No makeup photo – excuse the psycho look!  But seriously – try the B.B. cream I really recommend it.

Now it’s time to keep up with the Kardashians ; ) and wait for Ryan to get home. I’m gonna force him to do a face mask with me haha we need to look cute tomorrow – it’s our 4 year anniversary. I got a few surprises for him that I will share with you guys tomorrow. Later peeps!

Tuesday shopping and chilling

Hey everyone :) Hope you all had a nice day! I went shopping at Greenacres this morning – got a another lovely birthday present from Robin so I could shop shop shop :):)
Found a few things, but will go back tomorrow. I realized that it is waaaay to close to Christmas haha everyone is in the mall doing their Christmas shopping and it gets insanely busy. I hate busy malls with a passion! Could only manage 2 hours before I desperately had to get out. Tomorrow I’m gonna try to be there just as they open – be one of the first people in so I can avoid the crazy long lines. Anyway, here’s what I got:

20121211-183051.jpg
A new Nike dri-fit cap for when I’m out jogging. And a peach colored hoodie from Pineapple.

20121211-183226.jpg
Lovely new sandals.

20121211-183313.jpg
A tank top to work out in.

20121211-183404.jpg
A pair of wedges.

I also got Ryan a pair of Adidas shoes. Super cool ones : ) They look way better than in this photo – took it in the shop haha.

So we will see if I can find something else cool tomorrow. I also need to do some Christmas shopping… guess I’m just as bad as all the other peeps running around the mall haha sure they would also love for it to be less busy.

New shoes and nachos.

Feeling way better today :) my arms are a bit sore but no fever or anything! Yay! Went shopping with Ryan at Walmer Park, a nice change from Greenacres. So much more organized and clean than Greenacres – loved it. We were trying to find a pair of sweat pants for Ryan but that seems pretty impossible – will just have to wait until saturday when we get to Jeffreys Bay, at least there we know that RVCA will have some. Anyway, I found a pair of shoes at Rage that I fell in love with! :) I have been looking for a cool pair of nude colored heels since like forever and finally I got a pair. They only got them at Rage 2 days ago.

 

 

 

After the short shopping trip we went to eat lunch at Tarantino’s. Nachos :) Because nachos rock. Love mexican food. Maybe I used to be mexican in a previous life or something. That would explain why I keep saying things like ‘Sí Señor!’…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shopping in Jeffreys Bay.

Got ready this morning for a trip to Jeffreys Bay with Ryan. It didn’t really feel that cold so I wore a skirt and a t-shirt with boots and my lovely leather jacket. By the time we got there it started to rain a bit, and for some weird reason some of the shops decided it was a good idea to have their air con on making it colder (think freeze-box) inside than it was outside. After about 2 hours of shopping it started Raining. Heavy rain. Raining sideways with raindrops the size of marbles. Lovely, not so much. Luckily I bought a RVCA hoodie at the last place (the RVCA store) before we headed out into the rain and back into the car. So I just put it on like a second after it was paid for. RVCA by the way has the coolest stuff for guys – love them!

Didn’t really need the sunglasses…

Life by Sofie

Got most of the guys (Ryan & Robin’s) Indo trip shopping done which was great.

RVCA t-shirts

Three RVCA t-shirts. The grey one was actually for me but silly little me forgot to check the size before buying it haha. A medium is waaay too big, should have gotten a XS, so I gave it to Ryan. :(

Surf wax, sunscreen, ding repair kit (?) and a million (5) board socks.

RVCA shorts! Love them. For Ryan, not me. I got a pair of leather shorts :) love them even more.

Board short and rash vests (? correct me if I’m wrong – I’m not a surfer).

Two coffin bags so that they can pack 3 boards in each one.

t

Would have loved to stay and shop a bit longer but the weather just made it impossible. Most of the stuff there is really surf fashion and surf stuff but it’s not impossible find cute things anyway.

Another day of shopping

Went shopping again today, and yet again couldn’t find anything. Booooring! Well… not saying I didn’t buy anything ;) I actually got myself 2 pairs of sunglasses, 3 basic tops, 2 pairs of earrings, a pocket mirror thingy, a pair of sweatpants and managed to get 3 ear piercings! But I just can’t find anything cool to wear so I am still checking online and have found a few lovelies that I wanna order. I had so much hope for YDE (Young Designers Emporium – http://www.yde.co.za ) with their new stock but the prices were ridiculous. And once again I realized today that just because something looks good on someone else does not mean it will look good on me, I’m just gonna go with what I know works for me from now on.

 

2 new piercings in my right ear and one new in my left :)

Oh and I fell in love with a pair or heels that I’m gonna go back and buy tomorrow! Pink neon peep toe. Amazing! The photos don’t do them justice at all.

 

 

What happened to the shopping?

Went shopping today and had a few things in mind that I needed to buy, like underwear, jogging pants, sweatpants, a white shirt, leather pants, tops and stuff. But turns out there is nothing in the whole mall (Greenacres) to buy…well that’s what it felt like at least. I got back home with a new MAC mascara (LOVE). So today I have been checking like a crazy person for a good online shop that ships to South Africa. So far I’ve come up with ASOS… Cannot believe Nelly.com only ships their stuff within the EU. That used to be my fav place o shop :( Do you guys have any good suggestions for where to shop online?
