Beaching with my bests

Since I'm the only fool 'I know' who has to work this festive season, the past weekend I did a much needed beaching session with my bests,   Besides rapping to 'Wu Tang Clan' in a traffic jam, stuffing our faces with calamari, soaking up the scorching sun and then dipping in the ocean for the ultimate cool, these images are actually what I want to share.  they were taken by my friend Qud-doo-siyyah, with her canon but you would swear they're taken with a lomo camera.
I love the editing techniques used.

Bonang Matheba | Queen B

From Radio DJ to executive producer at her own entertainment company, Bonang Matheba, better known as "Queen B" is definitely blooming on the South African "It" list this year.  She recently added Top Billing to her success list when she appeared on the lifestyle and travel show as the newest member of the top billing family.  Being the most followed female in South Africa, with a huge following of 316290 twitter followers, already says a bit about her hustle in media and the style icon she has become to many.

Since this is a fashion blog, I wanna get straight into her style choices and who inspires her the most .  According to an interview I've seen recently, Her biggest style icon at the moment is Olivia Palermo who's also a huge NYC fashion socialite who dresses to kill.  A part from being dressed by talented SA designer 'Gert Johan Coetzee' for Red Carpet Events, Bonang herself has some serious killer day to day style as she was awarded for 'Most stylish media personality not to long ago.  Being so well known in the twitterverse, she's often tweeting pictures of what she wore, almost daily.  I love that she uses accessories as a main key in her look almost over powering the look itself, But keeping it casual and raw at the same time

Below are the looks she posted on her official pages

really dig this GJC number

Love this neck party

Chanel is chanel...is chanel

Keep it fresh

MilQ & Honey | Collection

Last week Thursday I attended, exciting brand MilQ and Honey 's fashion launch at their beautiful health and beauty spa out in Rondebosch.  The MilQ and Honey Health, beauty and now fashion house is owned by Sisters Gabriella and Kelly Davids, Whose new clothing range was designed and created in honour of their late mother Tamara Davids.  The line includes pieces with bold colour, a mixture of funky 'on-trend' prints, various types of textures and basically taps into their cool personalities as well.  From sophisticated chic to sexy evening glam, Milq and honey has a little something for all the ladies.  The mission of this label is to inspire all woman to feel beautiful, confident as well as comfortable in their own skin. 

The event was attended by some really cool people such as Boutique owners, Fashion buyers ,Cape Town bloggers and great media sources all in all.  On a sad and disappointing note please forgive my poor photographic skills as my camera pulled a complete 180 on me, leaving me 'focusless'.  I do however, plan on getting my 'Canon' on soon enough.

In other news about the launch,  Cape Town International model 'Sydney Terry bailey' walked in the show along with all other beauties, who did an amazing job on the runway by the way.  Sydney recently walked for International designers such as 'Jeremy Scott' and 'Chadwick Bell' in New York and Paris Fashion Week last season.  Not going to lie, this might have given guest's the slightest idea of what NYFW felt like from the front row wink wink.

All images are my own.
