I’m channeling my inner Janelle Monae this week…I should let you know that although this look is Janelle Monae inspired it was really Tapi’s vision…He spotted those pants in H&M and insisted that I get them…I wasn’t sure to be honest. I generally shy away from embellished ankle grazer pants because I’ve got short legs ...

The Friend Zone

She is my first real memory of a real friend. She noticed me…she liked me , just as I was…with my month old braided hair, un- moisturised limbs and oversized uniform…She didn’t mind the fact that my nose made up 85% of my face…it was simple. We laughed till we cried, then our tummies would ...

Ninety : Ten

I thought I’d put together a final winter look to bid farewell to 7 months of this Melbourne winter. My favourite part about winter is seeing all the different coats that people bring out out of their closets. This wool coat was the only new edition to my winter coat family this year. I actually ...

  I am writing to you in the midst of my storm, wondering if you are with me, or if you can hear me. Well I know you can hear me, but I guess I sometimes wonder if you get tired of listening to me. I suppose I would understand if you did. You have ...

I am thankful that I have a family. A big family. That’s cares about me and loves me. Brothers who will go to the ends of the world for me. Parents who have such an unconditional love for me. In-laws that adore me. A beautiful nephew who makes my heart sing. I am thankful that ...

“What do you want to do with your life?” Is it me, or is that one of the worst questions someone can ask, I mean it’s almost worse than my Dad’s “What are your short-term and long-term goals?” Growing up I used to cringe every time he asked me that because I knew what he ...

Investment Analysis

Whilst chatting to a friend about the vision I had for this blog, I mentioned that I would possibly share on some of my experiences as a young “modern day” Zimbabwean wife. Naturally, she questioned whether it was a good idea. I did too, my marriage is sacred and I want to protect it, but ...
