Outfit of the Day: Darkness

A forgotten simple outfit – its visuals lost to the back-end of my phones archives. I love this straight, ombre hair from Aretha Bauwens Hair. It makes it easy to just dress and go when I’m travelling. I’m also rocking black tassel earrings by H&M, a vest and pleather jacket (that is falling apart, after…

Cape Town Foodie Escapades: Mischu Coffee Review

The first visit was a calm ebb…a lethargic moment in an enclave wreaking of freshly ground coffee beans and simple cafe finery.
