AT THE FARMERS MARKET…

Hey guys! So today I will be sharing my experience at the farmers market, my first time there and it was awesome.


So location first, the farmers market I went to with two of my friends and fellow bloggers, Lala and Samu, is in Fourways right next to Monte Casino and its every Sunday from 10am to 4pm.


I was there to do some school work but I really wished I went there just to chill and relax because guys the vibe there was too good. With only R10 entrance, the market was filled with food stalls all over the place, people selling some beautiful handmade items and clothing and a live band (which apparently is always there every Sunday).


I spoke to two lovely girls at the market, Bassi and Didi, who told me about how they would prefer the farmers market over neighbourgoods in Braam and Arts on Main in Maboneng. Although they have a similar setting they said the market is better because it’s “more outdoorsy and more chilled” and relaxing than the other two. They then went on telling me about their favourite food stall, both being anything with Chinese food and how they won a “shot of tequila from guessing a song played by the live band there”.


A lot of great fashion was seen at the market even though you go there just to chill and relax. So it’s definitely a great place to come and show off some of the great pieces in your wardrobe.


So guys I’m definitely going there again, next time just to chill and enjoy the day. I suggest you guys check it out if you are looking for a place where you can put on your favourite outfit, get some good food and chilled vibes.

Until next time guys! 🙂

RUNWAY 2 REALITY…

Hey guys, so today I will be doing a little feature on a fellow blogger. Her name is Samu and you’ll find out the reasons why I’ve chosen to feature her on my blog.

Her blog is about sharing with her audience all the latest trends that are in the fashion and beauty world as well as advising them how to incorporate them in their own lives. I had a little interview with her where she shared her love of fashion and beauty as well as other things she has going on besides the blog.

During our interview – it was like a mini interview by the way – she spoke about a little difficulty balancing content from switching to beauty then fashion, saying that” the fashion industry might be popping with a lot more trends in one season” so she would have to focus more on that side but she does tries to keep the content balanced for her readers so they receive that full package she promised when launching her blog. The latest trend she talks about is the different denims that people are rocking at the moment, I say it’s a must read.

We moved on to her style where I asked about her style icon and her style inspirations. As she herself is an edgy girl and puts edge in her styling she told me that her style icon is India Love, her own words being, “she wears whatever she wants and always adds edge to her outfits”. Her style personally, is also styling with an edgy taste to it. Her style is mixed with dressing like a school girl -high waisted skirts, long socks – with a bit of grunge to it but she does also tell me that she can move from that to a totally different style meaning that she has no set style. Its fashion after all, a girl can change her mind and she says fashion was her first love so its allowed.

Besides her blog she told me about another project she has going on, she told us about interning for CollegeFashionista. I’ll just put what she told us about this in her exact words, “CollegeFashionista is basically a large community of college students who are fashion forward, and love to produce content about not only fashion, but beauty and lifestyle as well.” Her job is to write content for them about fashion she spots at our campus, LISOF, and in return she gets guidance on writing, photography and social media skills. I have to say it’s necessary and needed for the industry we are trying to venture in.

Her blog is amazing so far guys, I advise yall to go check it out, also check her out on the gram she also posts from time to time when she has written an article for CollegeFashionista!
