Stolen Pics

I'm sure you all know by now how I enjoy stalking you {evil laugh}. It just makes me happy when people understand the importance of looking good, when people take time to make themselves look presentable... sengisho ukugeza kubonakale lol. Here are some of my favourite looks that I feel deserve a spotlight lol: 

Simple is the new black! Here's why: 

I just love the simplicity of this look... guys, please take notes.

 I haven't really met Ntsako, we're just Facebook buddies. But I think I need to meet up with him and do a young style-one-on-one feature, he's fashion sense is just amazeballs!

Even though me and him are enemies, I still think this look deserves a bow. I'm crazy for Dashikis if you didn't know. 

Yall know how much I adore Squishy' style - I could never do a "Stolen Pics" post and not feature her. I'm not a tunics / white dresses kinda girl, but this one... I can rock any day!

Simple is the new black - if you're still complicating your life by trying to mix and match, colour blocking, following stupid trends etc. then I'm sorry for you my friend. Take notes from Lihle here, look at how he's making a simple white T and blue jeans work. But then again, Lihle can make a trashcan bag look like something from the David Tlale collection - the hotness! 

 Formal wear made fabulous! #ThatIsAll

I just love how the patterns on her blouse work so well together - I sometimes wish I was brave enough to rock vintage. But then again, Vintage wear is a lifestyle thing... I think.

Curvaceous and proud - Tumi wearing a lovely orange maxi. I feel like maxi dresses and skirts were made for curvaceous people, they just look godly in anything maxi.

I've been trying to sit this one down for a style-one-on-one feature... Teboho, if you're reading this, please reply to my emails/bbms/FB inbox/whatsapps I will not stop stalking you until you do this feature with me... pretty please.

I don't think I've said this enough, so I'm going to say it again – 'simplicity is the new black!' Let's stop trying too hard at this fashion thing and stop following trends that sometimes don't even work for us and our bodies. Be simple, and be you! 

I shall leave this here!

Which side of your family is #Shameless?

This has by far been my number 1 fave series of all time... pushing #Suits to number 2! I think I watched all seasons (1 - 4) in like one weekend and now I'm impatiently waiting for season 5... yoh Paul Abbott I need a fix man!. 

So, going back to the question at hand... I think my mother's side of the family is the most shameless, and I'm sure all my cousins will agree with me on this one. Let me break it down for you so you understand where I'm coming from lol. 

I'll start off with Fiona, the boss of the house. In my family, she'd be my mother's older sister. The first born of the family. She is the "never to be messed with" type, but yet so kind loving and sweet... her name is Margaret, but we call her "Dedo". I think the name came from one of the kids who couldn't pronounce Margaret, I'm not sure how it came about. She is a sober Fiona though - doesn't drink nor smoke, just on a natural high lol. 

Lip in the series reminds me more of mother, the "don't mess with me" and "fuck you" attitude that I like to think I possess, I got it from my momma beesh! Her siblings call her "Ziyashunqa" which means "don't play with fire"... she is a beast I tell you. She is a smart, business headed woman and street smart as well.

Liam, would then be my uncle Bebe, may his soul rest in peace. I say this, because I remember when they (siblings) had their squabbles my other uncles would tease him and say that he was adopted.We (me and my cousins) still don't know if this is true or if they were just saying it out of spite, and I sure damn ain't going to ask my mom or Dedo lol. 

Carl reminds me of my other uncle Gendi, the black sheep in the family, may his soul rest in peace. He spent most of his life in prison, and was proud of it. Like Carl, being unruly was a "thing" for him. He once got beaten up by the community (abo-vimbani vibes) and when we (the family) were begging them to stop, he just stood there, sort of like he was enjoying it. 

And then... saving the best for last lol, Mr Frank Gallagher. There's always that one uncle in the family, that's forver drunk and saying all those nasty things that "normal" people won't say out loud... that's my uncle Mandla, we (my cousins and I) call him "Bhut' Mandla". 

He is my hero, I think I become him every time when I get drunk lol. He drinks 24/7 and always has a story or two to tell. He once rented out his room (outside bedroom) to a foreigner and slept in an old wardrobe that was outside the house, just so he can have money to buy booze. He also stole a flock of chickens while working at a farm and kept them in his closet, fed them nicknacks that he also stole from the farm, just so he could sell them and buy booze.... but guess what happened to the chikcens? They all died lol. He does his laundry wearing sun-shades – claims his washing powder is too bright. I can go on and on and on and on about his madness lol. But I still love him, he is my special and fave uncle. 

I know I've left out Debby, Grammy and Sheils lol - but these are the the characters that came close when comparing with the characters in my family. If you haven't watched the series you won't get this post and I'm sorry for your my friend. 

Drop me a comment below and let me know what you think or what your favorite series of all time is.

I don't know how I feel about this

Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am a liker-of-things, and yes... it's true, I don't even deny it. I do like things, trying out new trends, following trends, testing things out to see how they would look/feel on me etc. But this... Kelly O's new tatt... I really am not sure how I feel about it. 

I am crazy about the haircut though... madly in love with it! 

I'd love to know how you feel about Kelly O's new tatt, drop me a comment on the box below!

#NowPlaying - Nina Simone

This woman though - Nina Simone!

Every time when I listen to her music I feel blessed, this one in particular is my "Thank Goodness It's Friday" song - gets me in the mood.

The hotness that is the world cup.

So, at work I've been tasked to work on a soccer campaign, can't say much about it yet as it's still hush-hush. Then I thought, "if I'm going to be working on a soccer campaign let me take advantage of the world cup and learn more about the sport". So, this past weekend I invited a couple of guy friends over, bought some booze and watched the world cup! 

Ladies, yall need to get on the world cup steez - I was drooling the entire time. I don't even know which teams were playing, all I know is that there's a lot of eye candy and how many times those hotties can get it lol #AllDayEveryDay and #3TimesOnSundays! 

I'm not saying you have to watch the world cup religiously but maybe once in a while you know, it might even score you some brownie points for "girlfriend of the year" lol. 

So here are my top favourite hunks (lawd, the things I would do to them...)

1. Neymar - Brazil 
No pressure gents ;) 

2. Sergio - Spain 
3. Ronaldo - Portugal 
Need I say more? 

4. Marcelo - Brazil 

5. Hernandez - Mexico 
6. Kevin Prince - Ghana
7. Benzema - France 

Ladies, if this is not motivating enough for you to watch the world cup then I don't know what is. 

Let me know who your favourite eye candy is on the box below.
