I love you unconditionally.

Being with him, for, numerically what could be seen as a brief time, taught me how to love myself, and others, unconditionally. He was the catalyst, and after our time together came the realization that I had been going about love (of myself and others) all wrong. Before him, there were always conditions attached to how I …

Okay.. now vibrate higher.

Despite advocating for self love and finding joy from within I must acknowledge that things are still going to evoke an emotion out of you sometimes. People are still going to hurt you, and make you cry. You will still get angry. You will still spew cuss words in your head, or maybe even out …

Cape Town + Robben Island – Final pics

What I liked the most about Cape Town was the African art, the Congolese live music, being by the water; as well as, the cool African people I met in Obz. What I disliked was the predominant European influences that had me really confused as to where I was sometimes. If I were to try …

At this point in my trip i was beginning to adjust to my surroundings but yet seeing things that were agitating my mind. In regards to South Africa's history I think it's very important to come and see for yourself versus going based on what we've been sold in the media about the struggle. The …

Day 2, I ventured out on my own, downtown Joburg, to visit two galleries. One gallery turned out to be closed without notice. Nonetheless, I was glad to have at least been able to visit one. I also met up with my cousin for lunch and then he took me around to his old neighbourhood …

I loved everything about this outfit! It is the third, and last, I did for my recent collaboration with @chic_leatherstudio. The white peplum top is a thrift find I got here for 2,500 KRW. You know when you spot an item at the clothing store and already have the entire outfit, including accessories, planned in …

Thrift Finds — Silk

For this outfit, and my upcoming one, I had the pleasure of collaborating with a fellow Torontonian here who creates handmade leather goods, with love. Check her out on instagram @chic_leatherstudio and see if you can resist the urge to order one of everything, (it ain't easy lol), she ships internationally! The handbag went perfectly …
