Today has been lovely. I woke up to a very rainy and stormy Cape Town but instead of staying in bed all day, I took off in the pouring rain and caught the train into town. I had coffee with Debbie & Ulanda at Bread, Milk & Honey while they were on lunch break. I then went for lunch with my lovely friend, Robyn, at Royale Eatery. Royale make the best sweet potato chips in the city. We then journeyed to Muizenberg beach for some Sinful ice-cream and sat outside whilst it wasn’t raining and then went to sit in the car when the downpour started. It was the best catching up with Robyn after not seeing her for a couple months – crazy because we live about 15 minutes away from each other but so it is after high school. Now I’m looking forward to a night-in watching movies with my sister. Love this weekend already.
These are two things that I have struggled with for a long time. I have a problem with staying balanced – I go from one extreme to the next. I’m either eating super healthy or eating whatever I want whilst feeling terribly guilty. Both of those eating habits aren’t good for me. I have realized that I need to become balanced in the way I eat because otherwise I find myself with an unhealthy obsession with food (What I’m going to eat and whether it’s a carb or a protein. Will this make me fat?). I find that I’ve placed way too much time and energy on food. It has become something that I want to forget about and yet think about all the time but enough is enough. I’m deciding today that food will not be my enemy or comfort. Food will be what it is – a way of fueling my body so that I can live a full life. I will not let what I eat determine my happiness or make me feel guilty. I will not wake up in the morning worrying about whether today will be a good food day or a bad one. I will not look at other people in magazines and on blogs who seem to have the perfect appearance and wish that I was more like them. I’m deciding that I’m not going to work myself into a frenzy worrying about my weight and how I look. It isn’t healthy and it isn’t the way God wants me to be. He has told me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that I am made in his image. By berating myself I am not glorifying God. Actually, I’m saying “Well God, I’m not happy with your creation – maybe you could have done a better job here.” and how stupid is that? I want to glorify Jesus with my life and doing this means being balanced and rooted in his word rather than believing the lies I’ve been told. It means being healthy but not putting food before my relationship with him. It means honouring God with all that I am.
I love buns: fun buns, sock buns, bow buns and top knots. I wear buns almost daily and they’re the easiest thing to do with my hair. I have thick, wavy hair and if I don’t have the time or energy to make it all pretty and straight then up it goes into a little knot at the top of my head.
I think buns are great but that doesn’t mean they haven’t gotten me into some awkward situations like not being able to sit up straight in the car because my bun is so high it keeps hitting the roof. The most embarrassing thing though was something I said. I have an affinity with taking pictures of my hair on Instagram and I commented once to my sister that “I really like taking photos of my buns” – cue awkward innuendos. It’s one of the funnier things I’ve said.
I have just recently tried the sock bun and although it’s not the quickest and easiest bun to put my hair into it is close becoming my favourite. The bow bun is another lovely one that really is just pretty. I learned how to do it on Elycia’s blog. The top knot is the easiest because all i have to do is twist my hair up at the top of my head. And as far as fun buns go, well, I think that they’re all pretty fun.

It’s the new year and it is time to do something I’ve always wanted to on the blog – outfit posts. It’s kind of funny that all the brands I’m wearing are from the UK seen as I’ve never been there and I live in South Africa. This is pretty much my daily colour pallet but I think I’mm going to try and add some colour to my wardrobe. Let’s see how that goes. I wore this outfit today when I went out with my sisters to Kalk Bay. Lovely.
moving out. dinner with friends. lots of coffee. pretty food. pretty nails. christmas market. pizza with my besties. lovely music. art exhibition at the senyol/southey/mckay studio. new black hair. christmas time with family. new years.
At the end of the year I am seriously considering dying my hair bright red (big risk). I’m not sure if I will but it is a big idea that I’m running with. I can’t do it now though because I’m still in high school and I would be told to dye my hair back immediately. So instead of wasting money by dying my hair now… I’m gonna wait till December. My biggest inspiration for red hair is Allison from A Fine Frenzy.
The other day I was looking through pretty blogs and weheartit pictures and I found so many beautiful blanket forts. I felt inspired and wanted to make my own. So my dad sees me walking through the house with a long piece of skirting board full of nails and asked me what in the world I was doing with it. I told him that I was gonna use it to make a blanket fort and he laughed and told me he would take me to buy some proper poles. I then asked my friend Robyn to come and help build it. After about an hour and a half the fort was complete and Robyn and I had the perfect place to watch movies and hang out in.
Beautiful pictures of inside my blanket fort
All in all Robyn and I had a lot of fun in the fort. We hired out to dvds; however, we didn’t finish watching them because they were both pointless and super dodgy but whatever. I took the fort down and now my room is the cleanest it has been in ages!
Ooh and the pretty photos were taken by Robyn and I :)
My sisters and I at my birthday party (I’m in the middle).
Here are a few the songs that I am really loving at the moment. Some of them are really happy and others are just really beautiful. They’re in no particular order:)
1. When You Find Me – Joshua Radin Feat. Maria Taylor
2. Catch My Disease – Ben Lee
3. I’m Not Yours – Angus & Julia Stone
4. U+Me= – Dan Black
5. Do You Want It All – Two Door Cinema Club
6. Eat That Up, It’s Good For You – Two Door Cinema Club
7. You Don’t Know Me – Ben Folds Feat. Regina Spektor
In other news, I finish Grade 11 tomorrow :) So then it is oonly one year and I am finished school for good… an exciting prospect. so tomorrow I’m getting my report and sitting through a long assembly (it isn’t as bad as it sounds,promise) and it is also sad because one of the best teachers I have ever had is leaving. Not cool.
Today was the school variety show and there were some average performances, some good ones, some really bad ones and well… some “About a Boy” moments (you know when at the end of the movie he sings “Killing Me Softly”). Altogether, watching the variety show is quite interesting and sometimes qute cringe worthy but much better than doing school work so that’s a plus.
I am really looking forward to the holidays. I am gonna be working super hard for most of the time but that’s okay. I’m sure it will be really fun, yay.
Oh and lastly, it was my 18th birthday party on Saturday and the theme was “Audrey Hepburn, Full Skirts and Dandy Boys” and it was a sorta 5os theme. It was so much fun and I we danced for ages.
Well anyway I will keep this little blog updated and I will take LOTS of pictures.
I am sorry that I haven’t posted in like a month! I have been super busy writing exams. I’ve already written 7 and i have 9 left! I have a history exam tomorrow which I should be studying for at this minute but I’m procrastinating for 10 minutes to write this little post to inspire you guys and to motivate me to study.
