I had the pleasure of attending the first ever collaboration of New York and South African designers. What a glamorous showcase!

My fashion friend Craig Mentor, and the owner of Camen menswear joined me at the event.

My dress was a tulle lace and viscose dress from a little store in Harajuku Japan.

I wrote a full fashion report for Bizcommunity. Please find the link below, for more details:

Over the last few months, I coached the Mr and Miss Parow High school finalists.

What an incredible journey its been, to witness them transform from teens to young men and women.

There were no more deserving winners than Natasha and Jordan. They wowed the judges with their dedication, character, poise and personality.

It was an honour to coach and be ‘judge’ these remarkleable men and woman.

A huge congratulations to Miss Kelly Mckenzie and Mr Rickus Swanepoel for creating this ‘showcase’. It was a pageant of note!

Next year promises to be even more spectacular! Watch the space ladies and gentlemen!

It is always an honour to be featured in any media, be it print or any other platforms. There are so many phenonimal women, who do amazing work, and I am humbled being celebrated in this manner. Mika Williams wrote a story based on my career, achievements and community and charity.

We often rank our self worth based on unrealistic standards, which we will never be able to achieve. If we can just love ourselves, remind ourselves that our scars are proof that we survived, and focus on our strengths, we will be stronger, healthier women, who impact the next generation.

Thank you for such an amazing story Mika!

I love a beautiful vintage look. And how gorgeous are the veil hats? Just delicately revealing part of the female frame.

I shot recently with ‘Shutterstevie’ and we played with a light and retro decor at the iconic Anotoli restuarant in Cape Town.

It created the most beautiful backdrop for our moody shot.

This, teamed with my chandelier choker, of – shoulder top, pleated skirt, fishnets and pointies, were enough of a recipe for a very captivating shoot.

I love moody shots! Thank you photo fundi Stephen!

I love dance. To be able to glorify God with my gift is just an absolute honour.

I was a guest at the Parousia mid year production also had the pleasure of choreographing a latin warfare song called ‘Mountain’

Ci senoritas!

This is one question that is undeniably one of the most concerning questions that affect every woman. How do I know which colour suits me? Well hun – you can pull of any colour as long as you keep the colour that does not work for you, away from the face…..Excuse me? Away from the face?

Yes – if you are blonde and struggle with dull greys and melanges, why not wear it as a ponti jacket, and wear a colour that compliments your skin in a shirt, scarf or top? Yes – it works!!! Have a look at the colours that compliment you below 🙂 And please take risks too!!

Milky – Vanillas

You have natural blonde or caramel hair colour, with blue, hazel or green eyes, and
quite fair. You look great in pastel or sorbet hues, including pinks, soft blues, mint, etc.
Dare to wear deep pinks, aquas, and brights as well!!!

Dark chocolate –

You have deep beautiful dark skin and can wear most colours! Even if you may not feel confident, you can look it!! Go for bright bold colour!!!

Don’t be afraid of golds and bronzes, this is so gorgeous on you. Make sure you do not wear
extremely deep chocs without a pop of bright lipcolour.

Fiery

You are a natural red head, with freckles (in most instances)

You pull off autumn colours beautifully – Deep shades of reds, purples, browns, etc.
However, you can look pretty fiery in brights as seen above

I love how Emma Stone experiments with bold colour – yellows and oranges. You should too!

Toffees

You are olive skinned and mostly brunette. You can tan beautifully and probably one of the most desired skin colours, because of your versatility.

Much like dark skins, you break rules of colour, but ensure that if you wear nude, that you add some sort of pop in colour, be it in an accessory or bold lip!

Be adventurous with your colours! Take risks, and if you are still a bit uncomfortable with bold colour, introduce it in bite sizes in your accessories. 🙂

Viva Le Diva!!
