I recently got invited to attend a Master Class food and wine pairing dinner with Cathedral Cellar – which is part of KWV wines held at the breathtakingly beautiful Livega. Presented by the chief wine maker himself – Wim Truter and Gilda Nujoma – the head chef at Livega.
There is something about being in your twenties that puts an immense pressure on you. It is as though you are fast walking in a race and no matter how much you try to run, you cannot seem to get yourself to do more than a minute worth of running. It leaves you feeling exhausted. You try to pace yourself and walk at a speed that allows you to still be in the race, but it feels like for every minute you walk, at least 15 people have passed you. You try to convince yourself – own race, own pace – but the truth is, for every person who surpasses you, you feel a great surge of angst and anxiety.
My answer is to prevent this situation from happening at all costs and when it does happen – make sure you don’t lose out too much.
When I was in university, I used to be consistent. Consistent in giving up. Now, stay with me. Every beginning of the year when the new year’s resolutions would roll around, I would promise myself that this would be the year of fitness.
2016 was the year of fitness. NOT.
2017 was the year of fitness. NOT.
2018 was the year of fitness. NOT.
Once upon a time (last year), I was having a conversation about my wardrobe’s colour palette with Sekai from The Red Shelf.
Why do I only wear blacks and greys, do I own any coloured clothing? Would I consider wearing colour? And and and…
She in the end challenged me to wear colour, at least for one week. I thought about doing it but couldn’t bring myself to it.
We met again this year and she said it again. This time I took up the challenge and decided on when I’d do it.
We always wonder what some of our faves are up to and stalking their social media isn’t enough anymore.
We caught up with Quin-Leigh Hammond, founder and creative director of our favourite fashion brand, HoneyCassie.
She lets us in on what she has been up to and all the in-between.
Can I just say; if you haven’t read the first letter – please do go back and read it babe…this one will make better sense if you do…
Back to it…
It’s finally *lekker chilly outside and as each day passes by, the colder it gets. My favourite time to be alive if you ask me.
Here’s how I style one of my over-sized blazers.
Wow, it felt like time has suddenly stopped. Everything was in slow motion, just like in the movies. Both of us staring at one another waiting to say something…
Miss FAY is back .
Continuing where she left off.
