Early 2000s was the era of tracksuits with celeb stars like Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons seen rocking the fashion trend. The style has officially made a comeback as athleisure-wear with fashionistas wearing sweatpants and tracksuits at many occasions making it the new streetwear chic. Personally if I could, I would totally be wearing a pair joggers or tracksuit pants everyday! They are the ultimate answer to comfortability.
My current favourite tracksuit that I’ll probably be seen in this entire winter season is from Mr. Price. I was particularly drawn to this tracksuit by its colour and wide arm design on the tracksuit top. The tracksuit is from the Project collection that was recently launched by Mr. Price and it features a collection of fun, sporty and casual items.

So I’m sure we’ve all once in lives been tempted to go shopping in PJs to buy some milk for our coffee or sugar for our cup of tea. But it’s always only been thought until now, celebrities are rocking their sleepwear as casual wear on the streets and on the red carpet meaning it is officially the norm for everybody else as well.
This sleepwear trend has been around for quite a while now, but it is soon making its way back as trend favourite. People like Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Ciara have been made rocking PJs in public an effortless and sexy look. And can I just say I’m so in support of this fashion trend all the way.
I know this a very different and unusual post in comparison to what I originally write about, however, I thought the message behind this shoot was important to share. I recently did a shoot for a friend of mine who is a professional photographer, she had asked me to model for her in a very intimate shoot. At first I was nervous about the whole thing mainly because I’m not the sexy kind of girl at all! And I’m okay with, but now how am I suppose to pose in front of a camera and make people believe I’m sexy. But to my surprise the whole shoot was a great success and it helped me love myself more. We all have insecurities but we can work on those insecurities and turn them into our strengths.
The Internet has become a space filled with negativity and positivity depending on where you’re looking. When I was growing up there weren’t social media platforms which encouraged self-love or helped a person to learn to be comfortable in their skin, instead it showed me what was accepted by society and what wasn’t. However, as the future generation we can change that and remind young people behind us that they can be whoever they want to be and no matter what they look like, they will be loved, because beauty comes in “endless amount of forms and we need to recognise that.” – Alessia Cara.
First of all I would like to apologise for my sudden absence from blogging. I was in Cape Town for a short while working and learning under the amazing team of Marie Claire South Africa, and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life, so far. Even though I was in the beautiful city for work related reasons I did manage to sneak in some fun and luxury time which I will share with you later this week.
My hair and I have been through a rollercoaster of a relationship. I have dyed it, cut it, relaxed it – resulting it to become brittle and weak in some cases. This has helped me learn and understand what’s good and bad for my hair. First of all I have stopped using any processed hair products and stuck to purely natural products.
