Last week I attended the Mr Price Winter preview launch with Lisa. I always look forward to pretty much anything by Mr Price, because they always go all out, leaving their guests super happy and talking about the event for long after. At their summer party it took me two hours to leave even after my friends had all gone home. This event included coffee by the fantastic folks at Origin, a marshmellow roasting stand where you could customise your marshies with an array of toppings or turn them into s’mores, a selfie photo booth, great food and shopping vouchers for the guests.
Their new range features a mix of effortlessly cool items like kimonos, joggers, biker jackets and bold, printed tees. Lisa and I both purchased the dark grey joggers with a black leatherette trim, and I’ve worn them three times in the last week alone (#sorrynotsorry). We also made sure we had our latest threads packed in their new range of reusable shopping bags, the proceeds of which go to the Red Cap Foundation.
Otherwise I know I’ve been pretty quiet this week. It’s been a super busy time and I just needed a little break, because maintaining this site takes way longer than it will ever seem! I’m really looking forward to this long weekend, what are you guys going to be doing?

Shot in the colourful little part of Cape Town affectionately known as Bo Kaap, this area always brings me warm and nostalgic feelings. I associate it with houses in hues of happiness, my Islamic heritage and all its mosques, memories of watching the coons, where Aisha and I really got to know one another during a shoot, and the area where I went for my flight attendant interviews at the Hilton.

I finally got this vintage pleat dress back from Yasmina recently and I couldn’t wait to get back into it. I wore this outfit to a wedding a while ago, all of it except for the heels. These heels hold sentimental value as they were the first thing I bought when I moved to Doha, because I needed to numb the homesick feelings that had begun to surface fast. Continue reading..
