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.

Shoe spotting

20130228-142013.jpg Spotted these shoes while
shopping. In the store they looked way weirder…but seeing them in
this photo I took they are kind of growing on me a bit. What do you
think? At first they just looked like the weirdest shoes, but although
they may be a bit unusual they really don’t look That weird. I
didn’t buy them, I bought another pair that I fell for straight
away not having to think about if they look weird or not haha. I’m
planning on wearing them this weekend so you will probably see them
in a post on Sunday or Monday :)

Early shopping and brunch.

Went shopping this morning with Ryan and Robin. We stood outside Moffet on Main before they even opened. The plan was to get a new coffee table. That plan failed. Big time. We went to like a million (yes I am exaggerating there aren’t that many places here in Port Elizabeth) furniture shops but found nothing. Moffet on Main, Walmer Park, some other shopping area and Greenacres. Like I said, huge fail. They don’t have anything, at all. Anyway, we had lunch at Kauai at Walmer Park. That’s always nice. Love the fresh and healthy food there. I had a vegetarian Mexican burrito – very yum! :)
Now we are just waiting for the rest of the peeps to show up so we can start partying ;)

Weylandts – Loving the Portuguese Tableware

Weylandts_lowres

ADD A FRESH LOOK TO YOUR KITCHEN WITH WEYLANDTS PORTUGUESE TABLEWARE
I am loving the fresh and unique, Weylandts’ selection of hand-crafted Portuguese tableware. They remind me of when I was about 13 years old and spent 2 weeks in Portugal with my mom, my brother and his dad. I bought a beautiful blue and white ceramic tray that holiday. The tableware embraces that timeless trend of blue and white.
Weylandts’ imported Portuguese terracotta is execeptional in every sense of the word. Available in classic white, strong stripes or traditional Portuguese patterns, every items is hand-shaped, hand-painterd and hand-glazed. Each piece also bears it’s own signs of the craftsman’s work – each imperfection a signature of the potter who created it. That just makes it even more special.
With prices starting at only R39, you can afford to indulge. You can make your kitchen look more Portuguese and  why not cook something Portuguese as well ;) They have amazing tasting dishes – my fav one being  Bacalhau.
I’m loving these ones the most:

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 ;)

IMG_3057 Photo on 2013-01-24 at 9.19 AM Photo on 2013-01-24 at 9.19 AM #3

 

Today’s summer style outfit : ) Striped dress from H&M, Borrowed (my boyfriend’s) hat from Hurley, Sunglasses ? and shoes that you can’t see in these photos haha from Lacoste. You are actually lucky not to see them haha the are so worn it’s not even funny but the most comfortable pair of shoes I have. On my way to buy some more paint now so I can continue with my Picasso project. Going for a drink later with a friend who’s moving to Cape Town tomorrow, so will have to look for a going away present as well…tricky!

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!’…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Jimmy Choo shoe post.

I love Jimmy Choo shoes, even though I don’t yet own a pair just looking at these ones from the autumn/winter 2012 collection makes me wish I could say I was the proud owner of all of them haha. I can’t even pick a fav pair! Def a ‘Wants it, Needs it’ post! Which ones would you pick?

New Nike darlings

Went shopping at Greenacres today and thanks to my lovely boyfriend I am now the proud owner of a lovely pair of black and neon yellow Nike running shoes. Getting them got my motivation up so much that I went for a jog straight away after I got back home :) Who knew my motivation was hiding in a pair of shoes haha. And it feels way easier to run in them compared to my other ones. Love love love them :) Made a deal with myself to go for a jog in the mornings from now on.

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?
