Forever New (Thanks Melissa)

I was lucky enough to win this giveaway over at Melissa's blog. I rushed down to the Waterfront to see what they had "in store" for me ;) There is a fabulous sale on at the moment, where all sale items are reduced and the second sale item you buy is less 50%!

Beautiful packaging

These are my new earrings:

Luckily I've got pretty big earlobes...

I also got skinny black pants with rocking zip detail (a good staple to have in your closet) and skinny cargo pants. I must note that both pairs of pants will make anyone's butt look fabulous.
The sizing at FN is a little different to what we're used to down here, so don't be shocked if you only fit a size up from what you are normally.

Wild Jasmine Hosiery

I just want to share with you the awesomeness of this hosiery. AND you can buy them in SA!

Shopping with the BF can be fun!

I just had this cool idea and mentioned it to my boyfriend who obviously agreed to do it He hates shopping with me (which guys really do anyway?) I thought it would be fun to go into a shop and let him pick out outfits he likes (and no, not only lingerie and bikini's). I'm not necessarily going to buy the clothes, but I would like to see what he chooses for me. I'm lucky that my guy actually appreciates the clothes I wear, and also tells me I look great even in my PJ's. I hope your boyfriends tell you that :)

Yes, my boyfriend is a nerd. And he is studying Engineering :)

City Bowl Fashion Market

Save the date! The next fashion market is 24 September, 9-2pm. Unfortunately the market is always packed and I wasn't able to get a stall. I'll go check it out though, as I can't wait to meet Leila from Bow Peep, Heather from Blackrose Bouquet, Janece from Vintage Lover, Nicci from Vamp.

I feel horrible for thinking this, but hopefully someone will cancel for the next one on 22 October... fingers crossed!

Babette Clothing

Barbara from Babette Clothing makes some of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen. I want to buy them all! She gets hold of fabulous vintage dresses and alters them. Check out her website OR visit her Birthday Sale on Thursday :)

Awesome People Hanging Out Together

Found this the other day via Happy Duck. One of my all time favourite blogs. Gives you a warm & fuzzy feeling inside.

Yoko Ono, John Lennon, Salvador Dali

Brandon Flowers (The Killers) and Lou Reed

Elijah Wood and Macaulay Culkin

Dustin Hoffman and Sir Laurence Olivier (that guy who always played the lead role in Shakespeare plays!)

Prince & Prince Charles (getting a little hot under the collar there eh?)

Please don't bail on us KOL...

When I started listening to Kings of Leon's album, Only by The Night, in 2008, I fell in love with it. Caleb's voice is so sexy and mesmerising, and the effects on the tracks are amazing. They really are a bunch of talented guys. I did a bit of research and found that they have actually been around for a while, and it was due to "Sex on Fire" that they started reaching us down here. When I heard that they were coming to SA, I almost did cartwheels around the room. I unfortunately stupidly overslept on the morning of the 5 December and the Golden Circle tickets were sold out in minutes. At least I got General Standing! I was super bummed when they announced that they had to postpone their tour because of Nathan's injured arm. I'm really really looking forward to their concert on 26 October. It will also be my first visit to the stadium ;)

Do you have tickets to KOL or Coldplay?

Cape Town Bloggers Get Together!

Claire from Darling Claire tweeted me about the next blogger meet-up for Mother City dwellers. I really can't wait as this will be the first time I'll get to meet all the people I communicate with on Twitter! There is sure to be lots of lovely drinks, eats and prizes.

Gotan Project

I was watching a bit of the movie Knight and Day and recognised a song by Gotan Project in one of the scenes. I must just express my love for their music! If you love Spanish Tango-esque/electronic music you will love them. Have a look at their website and you can listen to a few of their tracks from their albums. My favourite is Epoca. It's been used in quite a few advertisements and movies.

Isn't the cover for this album beautiful?

You Me and Everyone We Know Night Market

I really can't wait to attend this fashion market at the Labia. It's on 30 September at 5pm and the theme is neon/brights/clashing florals.

Maybe I can get a stall there... ;)

Check out the Facebook event for more info.

Hello Again

Hello Again is a shop in Long Street which I've been meaning to visit for some time. I follow their blog which is run by its lovely owner, Lynne. I am in love with their funky, colourful tees and hoodies. Also, some of Bow Peep's products are now sold in the shop too!

Lynne did a small post about my shop a while back, you can check it out here.

Oh yes, they are  having a spring launch on 22 September which I'm planning to attend. I can't wait to see what other goodies they sell :)

New Beginnings

It's been a while since I posted anything on my blog! I feel terrible, but I really had so much to deal with this year. I moved to Gardens on Wednesday and am now in the centre of everything in Cape Town. I still have to explore this beautiful city a lot more and I'm waiting for a beautiful afternoon to do it!

I have so many awesome clothes I want to upload on my page. I really can't wait to give all the items new homes. Keep tabs on my page for more stuff.
