PARADISE AT OUR DOORSTEP

February 6, 2018

We have paradise right on our doorstep, did you know? Were you even aware that a flight to the Seychelles was unnecessary if you just needed a tropical break for the weekend. Yip I found a slice of heaven, I’m pretty sure I’m late to the party but none the less excited to have discovered this beautiful spot right around the corner from Cape Town up the West Coast. Nestled between Churchhaven (a sanctuary) and Langebaan (a lively seaside town) is the delicate cove of Kraalbaai. Continue Reading…

IIKARAS

January 2, 2018

I should start with a general overview for the next couple posts going live on my blog. Luke & I will have a spent just short of a month traveling Namibia and Botswana with 4  friends from around the world.

In no particular order I am hoping to share with you some of my favorite places and stops along the way, this trip is about the journey – not the destination.

Driving along the curvature of the Tuscan hills has to be one of my ultimate highlights of our trip to Europe this year. The sheer amount of medieval fortified towns in this part of Italy is crazy. Imagine tiny little villages & an assortment of vineyards and olive groves in every direction your eye can see.

THE BRAVE KNIT

August 10, 2017

The white knit.. something I have managed to stay clear of until the “mature” age of 27. Finally I felt I was ready and grown up enough to maintain a day out wearing white. This may just be a metaphor; another way of understanding responsibility and growth. Somehow connected or simplified into fashion talk so my overactive brain could process whats happening around me. And what exactly is that? I guess a shift in career, a shift in mindset and of course a planetary shift – Jupiter squares Pluto at 17º Libra resulting in a death and subsequent rebirth regarding some of your world views and the things you have thought to be true up until this point (for those of you you don’t have an esoteric mother who shares every astrological movement via text or FB messenger).
