What are the essences of you? Mine are joy, love and hope, each is something I connect deeply with yet they are also what I’m striving for in life too. If I had to pick only one though, I’d pick hope. Hope is the sun rising, hope is a life being born, hope is everything.
Please excuse my haphazard efforts of updating the blog lately, but when there’s work, I work! The sad thing is this little baby gets a bit neglected, but fear not, I’m now geared at full force towards MBFWA Fashion Week! Can you believe it’s less than 2 weeks away?? Holy moly, I can’t bloody wait. I got exciting pre and post fashion week posts lined up, as well as full force street style coverage during the week, both right here and on my instagram, for some instant runway coverage, head to my vine, the latest addition to my social media addiction.
Fashion week excitement aside, autumn is slowly but surely making its way here, but that doesn’t mean I’m giving up wearing fresh whites just yet, if anything it’s the opposite, there’ll be lots of fresh whites this autumn and winter for me! Why not go against the grain, plus it sure turns heads. Head to toe white can look too bride like or too innocent, best solution, inject some sportiness into it. A sweater and a colourful watch should do the trick perfectly.
Lucky for you, I got one of these Lacoste GOA watch to give away! It’s a fun and easy beauty that’s casual, sporty yet makes a statement. To enter the giveaway, simply follow me on instagram, post the last photos and tag #xssat to win. Easy peasy!
