A Day In My Office Wear! Post 1

Those that have been blogging for years can attest that sitting down and being the creative behind your blog posts is not easy. I have only been doing it for a couple of weeks, well just over 10 weeks and I can say that is has not been as a smooth ride as I thought it would be. Having thought provoking and engaging content comes with a lot of research, practice and time. You need to have a vested interest in your own work and then your readers will enjoy it as much as you do. You cannot produce mediocre work and expect everyone to love it. This is a lesson to me too. Even though I have been receiving support from all over the world, I still have a lot to learn and do.

What I Am Currently Loving For: Autumn

Autumn is fast approaching for those of us in Southern Africa; in fact it is a couple of weeks away if not days already.... The weather experts are already anticipating that this winter will be the coldest it has been in a couple of years. For the past couple of years we have been enjoying the beautiful seasons of the year because it felt like we had only 3 seasons namely Summer, Autumn and Spring and no winter. With that said, it does not mean that you don't have to look put together or at least cute and dressy for both Autumn and Winter. This is a beautiful time especially for those who easily get frustrated during the summer time. Autumn for me means that some of my favourite colours make a big statement in my wardrobe. This is the time I rock my burnt orange, dark green and the burgundy coloured clothes. Who cannot be happy with those colours honestly? Add a touch of navy blue, oatmeal and mustard and you are a winner. Believe you me, you will be walking on cloud nine literally :-)

Ironing The Wrinkles In My Life

I wanted to do a post about love again or why I love the colour blue so much but I thought why not address the elephant that has been keeping me sleepless at night. They say that if you are not happy about something or anything in your life you need to do something about it and possibly change it. I am reevaluating everything and jotting down what is working and not working; what's worth keeping and what is not.

My Valentine: Our Story

Portrait is from our holiday in Cape Town 2012
I was torn between writing about how my 2016 Valentine's day panned out to a reflection of the wonderful years I have shared with my with dear hubby; and the latter worn. This is going to be a series of stories as I cannot compress everything in one post.

Book Review : Half Of A Yellow Sun



I deem it fitting that I start my first book review series with a post of the critically acclaimed and winner of the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun. The reason I chose to review this book first even though I have read Purple Hibiscus and currently reading her latest offering Americanah; I wanted to read about the book that put her on the map and earned her the many respects around the world.

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas : For Him


This post is purely on gift ideas for him(A male companion). Every year around this time and on his birthday, I always buy my significant other things that I think he needs or likes. I have bought ties beautiful and manly ones if I have to say so, shoes, watches, shirts and gadgets from high end brands to ordinary brands; and believe you me that has never really worked in my favour. He will wear or use those things once and then they are forgotten or lost. This year I want to do things differently. I want to get him the things that he gravitates towards and I know he will get the most use out off. I have never gone wrong with Colognes, Books, Underwear, Duffle/Weekend bags and Golf-Shirts. 

Instead of me wasting my hard earned cash on things he will never use, I am getting him the things he will appreciate and actually put to good use. Fortunately for me, I know he does not play around on my blog hence I can write about potential gifts for Valentine's Day 2016.
