Some more photos from the weekend in Mossel Bay Stolen from friends.
Had an awesome long weekend in Mossel Bay On Thursday it was just me, Nikki, Zané and Niki staying at the River Shack. We had drinks played games, went to the beach, got creeped out by spiders and had fun.
On Friday morning after a 3 hour sleep me, Nikki and Zané went on a 3 hour horse riding excursion thingy. It was awesome to gallop in the sand dunes Unfortunately we had no place to put our phones so we couldn’t take any photos. Actually most of the weekend I didn’t have any batteries on my phone do I didn’t take a lot of photos at all. But lucky the other peeps did so I will steal photos from them later to post on my blog! After the horse riding we started prepping for the rest of the guys to arrive so we prepared the food for the braai and had a few drinks. When they all arrived we partied by the fire and had fun. The next day we drove to had lunch at some place packed with bikers and then partied again but had an early night.
Sunday we drove back to PE and crashed in front on the tv at home. The weekend was really heavy on my body and I have been feeling sick since yesterday But no time to chill haha tomorrow we are driving down to Cape Town for another long weekend packed with fun
As a bag lover (especially Chanel, as you already noticed) I couldn't stay quiet with
the new Cruise 2013 bag collection. So here I go!
Como uma amante de bolsas (especialmente Chanel, como vocês já perceberam)
eu não poderia ficar quieta sobre a nova coleção Cruise 2013. Então aqui vou eu!
Today I’m chilling with Smigies, Mignon’s little dog. He’s an american spaniel if I remember correctly. Matt dropped him off yesterday and we have been for walks and been playing fetch and snuggling. It’s been so nice Love dogs! Just wish I had one… a Doberman… I’ve mentioned it before… like a million times to my boyfriend… once to you guys. But like I said then the timing isn’t right, it sux!!! But at least I’ve had the pleasure of taking care of this little cutie for 2 days
I told you guys that I had something to do nine days ago that I couldn’t tell you about just then… remember? You can check the post here.
Anyway, that sunday I had a photo-shoot with my gorgeous friend Nikki. It was so much fun! We were in our ‘home studio’ fixing with makeup, hair and outfits. Drinking champagne and laughing, trying not to die from the heat! Have to do it again soon
So here are the results with me behind the camera and Nikki in front of it, please tell me what you think! I absolutely love the photos, she is so stunning it’s not even funny!
So I went to the doctor here in Port Elizabeth today and they took some tests so I will know by next what’s going on. Hate it when they have to take blood haha I always end up being so pale that they ask me if I need to lie down for a bit! Anyway, I’m going for dinner and drinks now at the Greek place (can’t remember the name haha) with Ryan, Robin, Nikki, Martin and Mignon. Will be lovely – just hope I don’t get food poisoning this time! I’m just looking forward to a nice and chilled night tonight. I’m wearing my new jacket paired with an old dress. All black and gold today.
Good morning! Not feeling amazing, or even back to normal yet. But I am going to do stuff today – see if it helps. Going to Greenacres to do some shopping now and will try to get a power walk in later. If I’m still feeling crap tomorrow I might have to go see a doctor. But anyway, to cheer myself up I’m posting a bit of inspiration before my shopping trip Hope you guys enjoy!
I love braids. My hair is getting to the point where I can do so many styles on it! Here are some of my favorite hair-do's from Pinterest.
Hey lovelies Wishing everyone an amazing weekend. I have plans for sunday that I won’t be able to tell you about just yet but I’m very very excited about it! Will hopefully tell you about it next week ;) I think this weekend is going to be a chilled one. I am jealous of Robin and Zané who are going to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in Cape Town..! If I’m lucky then my lovely boyfriend will take me long boarding tomorrow, and maybe a quick shopping trip to Greenacres. Right now I would give my Kingdom for
a horse nachos and a glass of red wine!
Excuse the hamster face haha Had breakfast with Ryan and Robin at Finnezz this morning. Lovely salmon and scrambled eggs. The place was quite empty but we are gonna have to go there some night for drinks cause it looks really nice since they moved. Now I’m watching a How I Met Your Mother marathon before its time to do some actual running haha. Going jogging with Nikki this afternoon – need to get back into exercising mode again. Been way too lazy for way too long.
Today was a busy one for me! I decided to make the study room my own closet. They guys haven’t seen it yet haha but they will in about 30 min when they get home from work. It took me seriously all day and I rearranged a lot of stuff and threw away old shoe boxes and other crap that was just taking up space. The tiny space I had in my wardrobe in the bedroom did not work for the amount of clothes I have and it always ended up in a HUGE mess…as you can see in the first photo – my ‘after the weekend’ mess. But now I am so happy and I can actually see every piece of clothing I have in there which is a very nice and welcomed change. The only thing is that I realized that some of my stuff is missing… very uncool. I had a fav top that is no gone and my Louis Vuitton shopping bag has disappeared, a whole bunch of stuff really. Time to go shopping soon? One day when I’m rich and famous (hahaha) I will build a house with a proper Sex and the City walk in closet
And as you can see my painting ended up in a corner in the bedroom haha
So this post is a bit late… It’s now almost the end of January, but I still want to share some of my december 2012 adventures with you guys
Like I told you in one of my previous posts (I think…) I spent december in Cape Town. My dad and his wife came down to visit for two weeks and we had a lovely but intense time haha. Trying to do as much as possible in two weeks and washing it down with drinks
Wine tasting tour haha was supposed to visit 5 different wine farms but only did 2… Fairview and Spice Route. Loved it!
Will post more photos once my dad and his wife stop being too busy in Thailand to send them to me
Haha I know it’s a bit late to say Happy New Year, it’s not THAT new anymore but since it’s my first post of the year it seemed perfect to mention. So a lot has happened since my post but I’m not gonna tell you about everything. December was amazing though and there will be a post about it later.
Now I’m back in Port Elizabeth planning 2013. Lots to think about and do.
Was supposed to be detoxing and stuff but seriously that’s just not fun haha so instead I’m just just gonna be making bit healthier choices. I don’t feel like giving up everything I like to be healthy. Healthy surely must mean being a bit unhealthy and happy? I love my reasoning. However, it is time to start working out again. Nikki and I are now going to start training for a half marathon. I’m very excited about it! : ) We are starting next week. Feels like 2013 is going to be amazing – so far it has been excellent. Wishing all you guys the best year ever : )
Peace Love and Happiness
Welcome to Bahamas!
Musha Cay is the most luxurious private resort in the world and in the opinion of many experienced travelers - the most beautiful one as well.
Obviously the world did not end today haha. Sorry peeps in bunkers all over the world that wasted your day. After going to Table Mountain I had a nice and chilled picnic lunch in the park with Ryan, my dad and Lena today. Baguettes, cheeses, potato salad, greek salad, crostinis and cashews = YUM. The weather was amazing, 36 degrees! We were supposed to go on a sunset cruise this evening but the weather changed into this:
Had a lovely day with my love Went to see The Hobbit at the movies with popcorn and everything. The movie was crazy good! I loved it and can’t wait for the next one to come out next year. And the next one after that in 2014. Got Ryan a small little surprise when he got back from work today:
Had a nice and chilled day. Waited for the maid but she never showed up haha. Went with Robin to Greenacres and got some stuff for him. I got a new cap the black and white one in the photo – loving it, and a tank top or whatever for guys but decided to give it to Ryan instead I suspect it will look better on him – but it looks super cool! Then we went for dinner at the normal place… Spur. I had a Greek salad and couldn’t even finish half of it cause it was so huge haha but I love my olives and feta ; )
Now we are just chilling at home, the guys are working tomorrow and I’m going shopping : ) excited!
On saturday the 1st of december we had a 70′s themed birthday party for Martin and me. Martin’s birthday was the 29th of november and mine the 3rd of december so we combined them. The party was super cool and I’m happy everyone made an effort to dress up I really wanted to dress up like a hippie and think I managed pretty well with it. Nikki and I transformed their living room into a disco room for the night with a disco light, disco ball, blinking lights, gold gold and more gold, lots of snacks, a beer cake, a birthday cake, champagne and a horribly strong White Russian mix in a punch bowl. All in all super amaze balls haha To finish the night off we all went out to Castro’s and partied in 70′s outfits. Somehow I ended up with with 4 wigs and a hat in my tiny little hippie bag while we were all dancing.
My outfit and the best accessory ever – Benjamin How cute is he??!!
The crew all dressed up in 70′s outfits!
Me and my hippie boyfriend He looked so cool.
My amazingly cute birthday cake – thank you Nikki and martin
Nikki and Martin – disco queen and Angus Young!
My lovely hippie and his brother…Björn Borg! hahah
Mignon and Matt all 70′s style with afro and headbands and all
Preller and Sam posing in their rocking 70s outfits
Some hippie love
Björn Borg (Robin) dancing around the disco lights
Peace Love and Party! You can see the bowl of White Russian mix in the background – so strong that we only finished half of it haha
So I haven’t posted anything since I got to Cape Town. Now we are back in Port Elizabeth again – have been for over a month. Cut back on the drinks (except for a few heavy weekends here) and the super unhealthy eating. But not quite back to normal yet. Mostly cause I can’t exercise – fell into a ravine and hurt my knee pretty bad so can’t run or jump around Well ok it wasn’t so much a ravine…more like I was struggling in the dark and fell 2 meters onto a nasty half concrete like surface. Anyway…! This weekend we are having a combined birthday party for me and Martin, his birthday is tomorrow and mine is on Monday. It’s all 70′s themed and disco decorated I’m so excited its not even funny!!!!
Here is me trying on my wig and hat that I will be wearing:
Lovely day today Had lunch, nachos what else haha, and yummy drinks at the Fat Cactus with Zané and Olivia and am now getting ready for Bitch Bingo today to celebrate Zané’s birthday Got a super nice package from my dad and his wife back in Sweden full of clothes and licorice! Love it!! :)
Hello again my lovelies! I have been very absent and non-blogging since we left Port Elizabeth. But for a very good reason – Beer. Haha It has been lots of fun this week, the last week before the Ryan and Robins surf trip to Indonesia. And after a heavy night last night I said good bye and off they went this morning. 32 days. Crazy!
We have been drinking beer every day this week because it was a holiday and all, also because every second word Robin said was ‘Beer’ haha. So now it’s time to calm down a bit, get back into healthier habits and explore this city! Not saying I won’t party, I just won’t party all the time, party all the time, party all the tiiiiiiiiime – like Eddie Murphy’s girl wants to. Haha lame I know but anyway….
Here are a few photos from yesterday’s drive with Ryan, Robin and their parents.
Big big thank you to Julia from Chatoyant Makeup for nominating me for the Liebster Award So sweet! I didn’t really get how worked the first time around when Alison and Laura from the blog Deux Chicago nominated me (check it out here) and I just answered the questions without realizing I had to nominate other blogs. Sorry girls, I hope I get it right this time
1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the ‘tagger’ has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There are no tag backs.
1. What’s your favourite book?
Not sure what the book is called in english but a direct translation would be ‘A German mans Story’. Just because of his (or the translator’s..) way of writing and playing with the words. The story is really sad.
2. Is there any beauty product (like coloured eyeshadow, red lipstick) that you’re afraid of?
I stay away from lipstick in general ’cause my lips are always so dry that it ends up looking flaky and weird on me. I love a nice lipgloss or just plain vaseline instead.
3. What is your favourite movie of all-time?
4. What’s your biggest pet peeve?
People who clear their throats in a disgusting way, making me wanna vomit having to listen to it. People texting ‘u’ instead of ‘you’ – it’s already a short word! Oh and people playing with styrofoam – just looking at it makes me all goose-bumpy. I’ll take a black board over styrofoam any day.
5. Favourite YouTuber or blogger? (beauty or other)
So many lovely blogs and bloggers out there that it’s to hard to actually pick a favorite.
6. Big city lady or a small town gal?
I’ve moved around so much that I don’t even know but I do feel way more like myself in a bigger city.
7. A place you would love to travel to and why?
Mexico! For all the mexican food, the coronas, margueritas, the sun and beaches. And to be able to say ‘Si Señor’ and not sound weird. And the sombrero wearing mustache guys. Yes that is what I’m expecting haha.
8. Did you start your blog for fun or as a way to make a career in the beauty industry?
I started my blog for fun and I’m so happy that people like it and are following. It’s just a way of sharing what’s going on in my life and in my head, things I do and things I like.
9. What is your dream job?
I’m not sure I have a dream job… Actually I am sure, I don’t have a dream job but I’m sure that when I find it I will know what it is. Haha.
10. Is there a fashion or beauty trend you can’t stand?
Those horrible platform shoes – like the ones Robyn is always seen wearing. I have no idea how they made a comeback but I know that I will never wear a pair. You know the ones, right? The Spice Girls looking Buffalo type ones.
11. If you could only pick one to wear for the rest of your life… mascara or foundation?
What a horrible choice to have to make! I would go with mascara. Normally only wear tinted moisturizer anyway so screw the foundation haha
And here are my 11 questions for You!
1. What is the most rewarding experience you have had and what made it so?
2. Who is your favourite super hero?
3. What really gives you the creeps?
4. What song always makes you happy when you hear it?
5. What did you wanna be when you were younger?
6. What celebrity do you think you look like?
7. What is your fav piece of clothing?
8. Do you have a favorite designer, and if so then who?
9. If you had to host a party for 5 ghosts of your choice, who would you invite?
10. Are you a dog or cat person?
11. Are you a morning person or a night person?
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring: all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” -Leo F. Buscaglia
I’m in love with this thing – found my equilibrium! Warning you though, it is addictive
Last night the guys (Ryan and Robin) and I went for dinner at Spur. Cheesy quesadilla – YUM! Had some time to kill so we had a couple of beers and chilled – seriously chilled, it was freezing. 7 degrees outside and in the mall it felt like 8 and in the restaurant like 9.
After stuffing ourselves at SPUR we went on to buy popcorn and sweets (and tickets) for the movie – Batman the Dark Knight Rises. I think we all agreed on giving it a 7 out of 10. Expected waaaay more from it. And whatever happened to his Batmobile?
Anyway, time to get ready to hit the mall again – shopping time. Wish me luck haha hopefully I will find something this time with all the new stock in all the shops
This one day in Durban I was bored… so I started by fluffing up my hair like a crazy person, added some extreme makeup with gold colored eyebrows and all and started taking photos of myself… and here is the result.
I love trying weird things with my makeup just for fun but I rarely take photos of it haha.
What a beautiful day today Makes my soul happy when the sun is shining. Still not warm enough to put on summer outfits but for the first time since we moved from Durban (more or less) I have been able to wear shorts today. Seriously can’t wait for summer! It is a bit strange how I’m always cold. Enjoyed a cup of coffee on the balcony with Ryan after our food shopping trip – got back with a million things. But the one of course is one my most fav things in the world – a box of Ferrero Rocher YUM!
Photo taken in the car on our way to Martin and Nikki’s house. Had a really cool night last night drinking margueritas, chatting and hanging out with everyone Ryan was DJ-ing as usual but it was easier now I guess with the iPad instead of the iPhone haha.
You never know what’s gonna happen – we started out thinking we would just be chilling at their house and have a few drinks and watch the rugby, but by the time the rugby was finished it was decided that we would all go out for more drinks. However by the time Nikki and I were finished getting ready to go out it had been decided that we weren’t going. Haha I think we made the right decision
Today has been a lazy one. Been under the duvet on the couch the whole day watching the Olympics.
Looking forward to sleeping for at least like 10 hours now! Beauty sleep is very much needed haha.
Read this blog post and it freaked me out so I am now taking down all photos that I don’t have permission to use. Being able to post a few photos of celebrities on my blog is not worth getting sued for. Really guys click the link and read the article.
Update: I have deleted 50% of my blog posts, and deleted all photos that I don’t have permission to use from the remaining posts. My blog is looking pretty boring at moment but I have decided to just start taking more photos myself and using them instead. If I stumble upon some to die for fashion inspiration somewhere on the internet I will simply post a link to it for you guys.
Monday morning breakfast at Primi’s with Ryan and Robin Discussing all things to do with their surf trip to Indonesia in september. Many things to think of – like malaria vaccination and other medications, where to check in and out the bags, when to buy new board shorts and board bags etc. The guys are EXCITED!! :)
Stopped by Dash on our way to book an appointment for the 3 of us tomorrow morning to get haircuts. I’m thinking heavy bangs…
