Dear Smile-keepers,

Spring has sprung on this side of the world and as much as I’m excited about warm weather, rain, wearing less clothes and more time outdoors with my wine, I’m already missing my favourite season, autumn.

Love At First Mic

Lydia's Life, Uncategorized

If you’d asked me in high school what I wanted to do after I finished, my list of possible career paths would’ve included fashion design, forensic sciences or media… the very last resort being running off into the sunset with a really wealthy Italian man for a career as a housewife. My love for storytelling has never died down, even when my dreams of what I wanted to become changed.

Dear Smile-keepers,

I really felt ready to come back the last time I spoke to you all after my little blogging break.  I was certain everything was back on track and I’d really love to blame Mercury going retrograde but, July was my toughest month of an otherwise beautiful 2019. I had mental breakdown after mental breakdown, I strayed from my spirituality as a result, choosing to wallow in my negative emotions and close myself off to actually facing my internal struggles… I was a mess.

Dear Smile-keepers,

We’ve made it to yet another month and I’m honestly very thrilled to be free of my college stress for at least a few weeks to get back into the swing of blogging and focusing my energy on my other passions.

The Weekly Thanks

The Weekly Thanks

This past week was nothing short of amazing! It was probably my best week of the year thus far because it was packed with alignment and a whole bunch of moments that made me smile and it all began with me setting the intention at the start of the week that the Universe would surprise me throughout the week.

Valentino Ready-To-Wear Fall/ Winter 2019/ 2020

Fashion

Valentino strikes again with yet another breath taking collection and this time, my inner amateur aesthete was swooning. From the comfort of my bed, popcorn made, tea cup cooling off slightly from my night stand while the thunder hummed outside, promising Johannesburg some much needed rainfall, I watched this beautiful fashion show on YouTube (in my imagination, I was actually front row so…) to bring you this blog post about my first impression of this collection.
