Sundowners and Steaks...

Hey Beautiful People,

Spent the past weekend with my best friend whom I won't see for another few months as she is going back to University today.
We went to my favourite restaurant, RJ's Steakhouse. I love this place! It's a family restaurant without the informalities and extreme casualness of Spur and the incredibly high prices of other restaurants and the portions are hearty and the food is really good.

Strawberry Dacquiri's and Gin Mojito's for the pain...

Me in DIY turban, moms shirt, thrift shorts.

Sikky in a Forever New shirt and earrings,

For starters I had the snails in Roquefort sauce

deep fried prawns on avo

T-bone steak with mash potatoes and creamed spinach and pepper sauce on the side

Sikky had a steak smothered in shrimp and mushroom sauce with mash potatoes, creamed spinach and butternut.

Dessert was cocktails because we were so full we were afraid to roll off our seats!

Traditional Wedding: Mod Style

Hi Hunnies,

Over the December break I was fortunate to be able to attend my friend's sisters traditional wedding. I havent been to one in years and I was pleasantly surprised to see how the Xhosa traditional garments have changed and become more westernised. I truly love and respect my culture and to see how local designers and seamstresses have manipulated the fabrics and designs to represent our culture today is beautiful.
 Everyone looked absolutely regal, not just the bride and groom and here are are a few photos I took to share with you :) 

Zintle Makalima was the Maid of Honour

My friend Ongi in a traditional Indian Sari.

Me and my dear, sweet friend Nunu <3
I thoroughly enjoyed these ladies outfits, especially the one in the middle, it is something I would definitely go for.
Lisa, my friend who's sister was getting married. She was one of the bridesmaids
A picture of the bride and her friends in traditional garments a month before the wedding. This picture was not taken by me but I do love their different takes on traditional attire and felt it fitting to include this :)

Cape Town: **Summer Bunnies Drive Them Crazy**

Hey Summer Bunnies (for my followers in the Southern Hemisphere)

Its been a wonderful summer holiday and although I have neglected you all, I promise it wasn't intentional.
Holidays are amazing when it comes to recharging your life battery. Even if you are not exactly sitting around doing nothing, the mere fact that you don't have to even gear your mind into thinking about work or school is rest in itself!
The pictures above were taken while I was holidaying in Cape Town with my boyfriend and friends. The weather in Cape Town was never below 30 degrees Celcius which gave us all the excuses we needed to jump in the pool :)

Hope you likey**
