all i can say is that my life is pretty plain

hi hello beautiful people!

next africa post (i have about 2 or 3 more i think)!
the title of this is a line from this song:

blind melon have been one of my favourite bands for like four year now, shannon wrote the most amazing lyrics and had such a beautiful voice!

the photos were taken in sodwana bay, we stayed there for a weekend and i loved it! such an amazing place with lots of cool people and all. i didn't go surfing or diving though because it was pretty cold and i'm more of a lazy person anyway so i just lay on the beach and read a book, haha. we had actually planned on doing a whale watching tour but the sea was too rough to go out which was a pity. i saw some whales from the beach though, pretty far away obviously.

as always, if you like it, hype it! :)

sunnies - ray ban
plaid shirt - h&m (men's section)
the black crowes shirt - second hand (was a present)
flower belt - second hand (got it from mum)
suede skirt - pimkie
sandals - vagabond

till i lose my sense of gravity


here's another one of my africa looks, named after an absolutely awesome song by one of my favourite artists/musicians

i adore patti smith's music, her style and her amazing lyrics and poems. she's such a beautiful woman and a great rolemodel!
let alone her autobiography just kids which i have read 4 times and will never get tired of!

when i found this shirt in h&m i was happy and kinda annoyed at the same time. it think it's really cool but i've told you about my attitude towards h&m band shirts before.. soon half of your school will be wearing them without even knowing/listening to the band. but still i thought if ANYONE at my school should be wearing this it's me, haha. i have two other patti smith shirts (both bought at her show in berlin in 2010) and i hate admitting it but i think i like the h&m one the best!

patti smith shirt - h&m
leather belt - my mum's
jeans shorts - levi's + diy
sandals - vagabond

out of africa

hallo everybody! (i was going to write something in afrikaans and apparently this happens to be the word for hello, funnily afrikaans is very much like german)

here's the second one of my africa outfits, it's pretty simple but i like it. the title's not a song but a movie this time, if you don't know it yet you should really watch it, i think it's lovely!


oh and if you want to listen to some good music then listen to this! love this song at the moment, i saw frank turner at the hurricane festival and he was amazing! 

whatever. here's the photos! i've had that dress for ages and i still love it! wearing it i feel like a real lady, haha! anyway i always dress it down with vans shoes or boots because i don't want to look too girly. i got these shoes from my little sister jackie because she's is taller than me (yes, life's a bitch) and so i can wear lots of the clothes and shoes that don't fit her anymore which is actually pretty cool.
i've featured the first photo before, haven't i? whatever, i think it fits and it's SO CUTE isn't it!? it's rachel and her daughter jambulani (which is the afrikaans word for happiness)!

don't forget to HYPE if you like it!

dress - h&m 
faux snake skin belt - thrifted 
shoes - vans 

totsiens (maybe i should actually learn afrikaans, hehe)!
