A Weekend in Pictures #28


This past weekend went by way to fast. Knysna had to much to see but sadly I had to little time. Forests and beaches and white picket fences are so right up my alley. See you soon beautiful Knysna.

Models Smodels,

For a recent assignment in photography class, I had to photograph motion...

I would lie if I said that capturing movement in an esthetically pleasing way, wasn't a bit daunting at first...


..but with lovely smodels like these, it was a piece of cake!

I've been planning... what to pack. The next couple of months will be jam-packed with trips...and my adventurous heart couldn't be happier.

I've been eating....pickled onions, Pho Bo and Turkish apricots.

I've been dreaming about....another Asian adventure!

I've been splurging on.... make-up.I'm not to sure if it was the name, or the colour that got me but I am pretty sure M.A.C's Shanghai Spice lipstick was made for me.

I've been reading... "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini and cried like a baby. It's one of those really sad, beautiful books that you just cant put down. Do yourself a favor!

I've been looking forward to...this coming weekend's escape to the forest, winter vacation, a June filled with birthday celebrations and Skype calls from faraway lands.

I've been wearing.... high heels. This is quite surprising as I am usually a "flats" girl and, up until now, owned only one pair of heels that I kept for special occasions like weddings or formal affairs. A few months ago my mom gifted me with a pair of heeled leather ankle boots. They were just to beautiful not to be worn so I tried it out and gradually learned to love heels. I just bought my third pair and prancing around on heels non-stop.

I'm thankful for... hot cocoa on winter nights, trips away with friends and family,  Adobe Lightroom (what a blessing), mushroom dumplings with an old sweetheart and finally understanding aperture!

I'm in love with ... Leonardo Di Caprio. What a brilliant Gatsby he is!!! I've always had a little crush on this beautiful man and lost my heart to him way back with Titanic. Fifteen years later, he still has what it takes.

What have you been up to lately?

Recently winter beaches and a pretty party dress, a new potted beauty and lots of tea as well as a lovely book all the way from New York made my days prettier.

Happy Monday!

May your week be so blessed!

A weekend in Picures #27


This past weekend a couple of us escaped to to countryside, lived in the cutest little cottage, drank to much wine, ate too many cupcake,read in our pajamas till lunch time, explored, laughed and relaxed. It was glorious.
