Fashion trends that annoy Part 2

It’s good to know I’m not all alone with my neurosis and that other people suffer from the same intolerance to fads and just pure people craziness. This list is from a new reader – welcome aboard Sam.

Gold teeth – not entirely sure when this became attractive.

Army boots (to be honest these I kind like but the reality is we’re not in the army)

 Boyfriend jeans (It’s not really your boyfriend’s jeans and you know it)

Short shorts, high-waisted shorts and the peek-a-boo pockets – a big no

Ke$ha and her star make up

Tattoos on fingers – as if wrists and ankles weren’t bad enough

And last but not least the CHINA TOWN floral pants with the non-removable tan belt (yes Sam they do appear to be everywhere I look)



Like sands through the hourglass…

…so are the days of our lives.

This year is flying by and not due to copious amounts of fun being had, well maybe a little I guess. In order to make this year fly by I decided to keep busy, too busy in fact. Some days I feel like I am going to burn out. There’s the bike lessons, Italian classes, swimming 5 days a week, volunteering at the children’s home and I took on a lot of subjects this semester for the degree I am now trying to complete and let’s not forget my actual 9 to 5 job that I have. I’m exhausted.

I remember a time in my life where I felt as if I was waiting for life to happen to me. I was waiting for so long that life was passing me by. That’s when I decided to do things. New things, things that I’ve always wanted to but put off because I was waiting for this so-called life of mine to begin. So I went from one extreme to the other because half measures are just so boring. I don’t regret anything though but I have learnt to take things a bit more slowly after all what is the rush?  However I have also learnt that the only way to discover your passions and what you love is to try new things.

So after my exams in May I’m going to focus on doing less and instead enjoy the last 6 months I will be spending in Cape Town. Soon I will venture into the great unknown of travelling the world and I’m not sure how things will turn out but that is a risk I am willing to take.

Fashion trends that are annoying me right now – Part 1

I know we all have our own style and we should do as we please and not care what anyone says about us but seriously some things should be banned.

Nerdy specs – there is nothing wrong with owning a pair if you actually need it! Everyone and their mother seems to have oversized specs. Some don’t even bother to have proper lenses cut for it as the designers name is still on the dummy lens.

Harem pants – why wear a pants that gives you a saggy flat ass? This look only works for an elite few. Sadly you’re not one of them. Take it off now and burn it.

Couples who wear matching clothes – track suits in particular. I don’t even think I need to say anymore on this below is a lovely example of a major fashion faux pas.

White pointy boots – I just don’t get this. It does not look comfortable. Looks even worse when it’s in white. What possesses people to do crazy things?


10 Things I have learnt this week

  1. I am a terrible patient – just leave me the hell alone!
  2. There is such a thing as too much studying.
  3. Too many public holidays confuse me. Is it Tuesday? Saturday? Thursday? Someone please tell me what day it is!
  4. A R99 (£8/€10/$12) phone is not so bad. I can make calls and send messages – isn’t that what phones are supposed to do?
  5. I finally know how to load film into an analogue camera. And some cameras can work without batteries.
  6. After some practise shopping is something one can become good at.
  7. Sometimes the least expensive thing holds the most value.
  8. It’s amazing how you can find someone with common interests even if they live on a different continent and even if you have never met.
  9. All a girl really needs is a bag with enough space to carry her phone, keys, money and lip gloss.
  10. Socks are over rated.
