All this magic

Last week was a beautiful week full of great events that I wish I could have been there for but could not make it. It was a bit of a bummer but thankfully I was able to get great pictures to all these events and I thought I would share them all with you.

The Besty’s Birthday
My best friend since forever was having her birthday on the 23rd and we live oceans apart which always sucks on such big occasions but her other (less important) friends..lol..threw her a surprise party and she looked like she had a ball. Here are a few pics.

                        Cutting up her birthday cake..YUMMY!!

                         Mixing up her non-alcoholic cocktail
                                      Drink it up! CHEERS!!!

She is coming down to visit in December and I’m beside myself with excitement! You can follow her blog at http://hairrevolution-cheeqsteelo.blogspot.com/

Sparkle on Ice Fashion Show
One of my former Directors where I work set out to start her own company earlier this year and it has been such a huge success. She is extremely talented and will definitely go a long way. The 23rd November (again) was the Sparkle on Ice Fashion Show that featured her company “The House of Couture” as the main design house and it was such a successful event. I’m so proud of her and sad that I could not be there but we can all ogle at a few pics of the event together! These are just some of her amazing designs.

Zambia Art & Design Show

I am so proud of all the amazing talent that can be found in my country. Every year we have the Zambia Art & design Show and this year’s was fabulous. It was a Sunday and we found out a little too late for us to make arrangements for me to attend but as always, some great pics were provided. What do you think?

Colour Blocking Baybeh!!

Woke up feeling inspired to do some colour blocking. I wish I had taken these shots in the morning when I was all perky because I had a long day with a three hour photo shoot of children and I feel and look dead now! The children were adorable for the most part, I found a group of teenagers in the middle of a drama class and one of them pointed out to me and said "I'm tired of my slutty stepmother!" while reciting his lines, which sent everybody laughing. I calmly informed him that his slutty step mother would not be as hot as me. I hope you agree!

I mixed my yellow top with a blue skirt I got for less than a dollar last week. (We don't use dollars as our currency in Zambia but it always sounds very funny when I change the cost to dollars.) Green bangles and a pink purse completed my colour blocking for the day.

Stripped with envy, wouldn't you be too?

Hello lovelies,

I had a busy weekend and no time to take pictures so I thought I would share a post on something I have been dying to own for months now. THE STRIPPED BLAZER/JACKET!!!

I fell in love with the stripped jacket when I saw it in the Rhianna music video for "what's my name." She looked so hot in it, she is such a little trendsetter! Now I have been seeing it more and more on other celebrities but can't seem to find it anywhere in any of my favourite stores. Shipping to Zambia would mean paying twice the price so I will keep my fingers crossed that this trend gets here soon. Here are some pictures of celebrities who rocked the stripped jacket and looked awesome!

You have to start somewhere, even if you were born to be a star

Hello lovlies (always wanted to say that.lol.)

Starting this blog has been on my mind for a long while now and I think now is as good a time as any. I hope to share part of my everyday life with you all as much as I can but nothing too personal.

Alot has happened to me so far, I graduated this year, moved out of home to live on my own far from my family and started a new job. It has been lots of changes but with a good support team to see me settle. The most exciting part about my job has been learning photography which was a bit of a scare at first but has grown to be one of my loves, I hope to share some of it with you on here. I have also developed a love for fashion and will post a few of my outfits every now and then. I do not have anyone proffessional to take my pictures so I hope you won't mind if they get shabby as I just grab anyone on hand to do it for me.

Here are a few pictures of me in my new military style formal dress that I got in a sale rcently. I had a photography session for a client who owns a beautiful lodge today and could not help posing for a few pictures:)

I brought my new snake print bag along on this adventure! I got it while thrifting and absolutely love it!
