'You will always be too much for some people. Those are not your people!' Yesterday was my birthday & I am so so thankful for everyone who made it so special. I am so grateful for having each & every one of you in my life....Thank you! The past few weeks have been tough-physically & emotionally, but I am still here, standing strong & with a smile on my face. I don't know how I did it but I managed to achieve quite a few goals that I had set out for myself & for that, I am...

I should already be in bed by now but here I am, wide awake as I type this special Blogpost. It's not just any normal day for me because my baby boy is turning 5 years today. Typing it makes it feel even more real & maybe reading this a couple of times will help me get used to the idea that I have a 5 year old son! Going through the photos & videos that I've made of him through the years bring back such beautiful memories which in turn make me feel so grateful to have him in my...

I think that I am experiencing a 'Writer's Block' at the moment, not because I am at a loss of words or that I don't have anything to write about (knowing myself, that is almost impossible), but it's because my mind, emotions & feelings are completely in jumbles at the moment. So instead of writing something that makes absolutely no sense to you guys, I thought that it would be better for me to take a step back, re-examine myself & use the chance to re-introduce myself to you & also...

Am taking a well deserved trip to Leipzig for a few days & I thought that I should share with you a few photos & experiences that I make here. I prefer this instead of waiting until I get back home where I will be overwhelmed again with work & life that I won't even be able to compile a good blogpost, if any at all. This is my first time visiting Leipzig & am very excited to experience the city & all it's beauty. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me. I wiish you...

Do you sometimes go through your day running around trying to achieve your goals, eat healthier, exercise (or try to), spend time with loved ones that you even forget to take care of yourself.? That happens a lot to me but thank God for good friends who reach out to me & remind me to take a break, go out for a drink & a laugh, a lovely massage or just a telephone call or text to find out if I am doing fine. I guess that is where my 'glow' comes from & am grateful for each &...

How do you go about trying out new things, trends or adventures? Do you try them out cautiously or are you the type that goes all in at once? In my case it really depends on what it is, for example the 'Snake Print trend' that we have seen all over in the last couple of seasons. In my opinion this trend is not really a classic for me, so as with all such, I choose not to invest a lot on it. On the contrary , this is where I scour Ebay & thrift stores to find gently-worn pieces to add to my...

Just as the blog title hints, my love for grey dresses is clearly not going anywhere even with spring 'springing' on us. We had some really nice weather over the weekend & this dress was perfect, cosy enough to keep me warm but the fabric is also thin enough to keep me cool when the sun came up. Happy Spring (very late wishes) & wish you all a lovely (grey-less) week ahead :)

This is a story about love, an 'interracial love' to be precise, the fear of losing a new-found love, the fear for one's own life, a belief in the super-natural world, death threats, going against the 'oracle' to pursue a love that you believe in, a hope for a shared future, the start of a family in light of the unborn child....all this encompassed in a musical atmosphere. This enchanting story written by 'Micha Hamel', performed by some of the most beautiful voices that I have ever heard &...

What's the first assumption that you make when you see me (online or in person)?..... Many people are surprised that I am not as tall as I look in my photos. 'Objects may appear bigger/taller than they really are...' That probably has to do with the angle at which my photos are taken because I have never claimed to be tall at all. Or is it the outfits that I tend to wear, like this striped look, you know how vertical lines have a way of making you look like 'Naomi Campbell' :) Oh, & another...
