Meowing Beds

WINTER IS slowing creeping in. Please excuse me one moment... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Okay, I'm done. On that note, my cat has begun sleeping under our duvets. But great was my surprise when I sat on my bed and it meow'ed back. This of course set me off in hysterical laughter. And of course onto Google for more lol catz. Thiz iz what I find.

IT'S MY birthday month, don't judge the birthday lolz. Don't. 

Great Kate

I DON'T think I have ever loved a dress like I do the teal wonder Kate Middleton wore to the Olympic concert, the final countdown to the London Olympic Games 2012.

THE JENNY Packham creation is mind-blowing. Out of this world. Exquisite. The best dress I have ever laid eyes on. I cannot fault this dress.

DUCHESS KATE isn't exactly the worst person to wear your designs either. She's a beautiful girl who knows how to stay in shape. Her only fault is marrying a man who's practically bald but we'll let that one slide... For now.

FROM HER french braid bun to her Jimmy Choo sandals, I am in awe.

My Hair is BLUE

"My hair is BLUE! It's BLUE!" is what I've always wanted to say after watching Bride Wars. Yes, I'm 'special' like that. But how could I not want blue hair after Kate Hudson pulled it off so bloody well?!?

SO NATURALLY I died my hair blue. Well technically I had to go blond (Read: Completely kill my hair) first in order for the blue to show in my dark hair. Being blond was... different. When I walked out the house with two different shoes on, I knew I had to change for the sake of my intelligence. So I went blue and black. Ta-Da!

THE FRINGE was the only part that worked... Oops! It's been fun though. I feel like a giant Smurf or a tiny Avatar. It's been a bit of a mission with the upkeep so I'm actually looking forward to going back to one colour... and hopefully restoring my hair to normal condition.

Tres cool!
Would love to do this, stunning
Would totes do this if my hair ever recovered

Katastrophe in the Media

THIS SHOULD have been done a long time ago but I'm not here to go on about my procrastination skills (I have many). I have pics of my magazine articles, ta-da! I unfortunately do not have the pdfs so photos will have to do. Apologies in advance...

MY FIRST article, ever published, featured in one of my favourite mags and the place where I did a month internship, Glamour.

September 2011

I HAVE yet to frame it (yes that baby is going on my wall) as I have yet to find a decent enough frame to fit it all in (recommendations are welcome).

 YES IT was an article on oral hygiene but hey, it's MY article on oral hygiene. How many people can say that?!

NEXT CAME what would be my dream job... Traveling and writing. Ok more like reviewing and writing but I can't be picky. 

December 2011
CLEO MAGAZINE needed reviews of places that were "off the beaten path". So my boyf and I got to review a B&B in Winterton. You probably haven't heard of it cuz there's really not much to say about it. It's about an hour's drive from the Drakensberg and I'm not exaggerating when I say it's a one-road-town. 

That's me! Top left

HOPEFULLY THESE will not be the last articles of mine to feature in magazines.
