The week in pics

I’m gonna try this out. If it doesn’t work then we’re just gonna act like it was a once off kinda-thing. Okay? Good. I won’t do this every week because… D.I.Y life.

Monday

After a super long Monday I had coffee at Vida. All I was thinking about was how much water I still had to drink. I’m trying to drink more water. It’s getting easier.

Tuesday

Went to dinner and a movie. No I didn't go see Khumba. It was Thor and OMG I LOVED it. Took a pic of the box because I thought it was cute.

Had my first magazine shoot &b received awesome news about music things in 2014. *scream* I wanna share but the manager lady will murderise me. Also was reunited with my favourite makeup artist (Malinette Newman)

 

Went for burgers (and cheese fries) at Clarke’s. Lovely place :) Manager lady took me there to celebrate my first magazine shoot and super awesome 2014 things.

Thursday

Thursday was another super long day. Missed a deadline (writing things). So I decided a pre-bedtime selfie would be a good way to cheer myself up.

Friday

Work function. I didn't feel like talking to anybody because I am only at the 'office' for 3.5hrs a day. They don't know me and I didn't feel like making 'fake office party conversation'.

Sunday

It stopped raining and I took a walk around the hood. Also I had a million DVDs to drop off. Let us never talk about my 'late fines'.

2014 Travels (option 1)

I thought I wanted to go to Brazil for the World Cup next year. After much thought I realised that I’m just not passionate enough and my FOMO is non existent. So… We’ve decided that we’re going to…

Madrid. Looking pretty & lit up

This seems much better than being in a place where everyone is there to ‘have fun’ and ‘enjoy the soccer fever’.

Get some sun in Barcelona

I better start learning some Spanish.Image

VALENCIA!!!

Need to learn how to say ‘this drink is awesome! I love this song… now kiss me.’ Kidding… Kinda… Not really… Maybe.

Have you been to Spain? Did you like it? What didn’t you like about it? Where should I ABSOLUTELY go and what should I miss? Let me know.

The Blues

I came back to Cape Town and thought everything would just fall back into place. Losing someone is major. The emotions are unbelievably complicated and heavy. Didn’t feel much like posting here or doing anything else. BUT…. I’m back!! Sorta. Not 100% yet but ready to keep things moving.

Oh it is getting COLD in Cape Town. My apartment is cold even in Summer so you can imagine what kind of madness I’m experiencing right now.

Delays, Distractions and Tears

posted in: Ramblings, The Music | 0

So… As you may or may not know. Today was supposed to be the last day of pre-orders. But a week or 2 ago, we had a bit of production drama (completely out of my control). We were supposed to go to print tomorrow, but alas.

I cried big hot salty tears and threw a couple of things. I had a tall tantrum! But my sweet Marcee reminded me that I am hurting myself by getting mad at things that I cannot control. Wise. So I sent out emails, texts (allow) & WhatsApp messages to all my pre-order folks telling them about the delay.

Because we are now printing we have decided to extend the pre-order process till the end of this year. I’m mad that I won;t be able to slow dance with a copy of my album as we count down to 2013. I really wanted it to be the first to touch these lips. Bleh!

So, if you haven’t pre-ordered the album. Go ahead and do it!

I’m a runner

I'm a runner

I’m a runner. When a place or people get ‘toxic’, I run. Seemingly, I have been in the same place for a long time. It’s time to run. I am so unbelievably attracted to the Eiffel Tower. It is ridiculous.

I’ve been telling my friend @beanbagboy that he should move to New York. He’s wanted to live in New York for AGES. So, I’m gonna take my own advice.

I don’t think I’ll go live in Paris, but I will make it my yearly thing. 3/4 weeks a year should be enough to keep me going. I’m definitely putting my running shoes on. Its time to run away.

Friday night was spent drinking LOTS of wine at a friends house, sitting around a fire.

Didn’t feel like making breakfast, so we walked to our favourite breakfast spot in our hood (Hout Bay). Pretty neh?
Marcee… She says she was still drunk lol. She DID have too much tequila ha ha ha.
In last night’s clothes. Go ahead and judge me :(
Went to go an pick up a book that I ordered 2 weeks ago. This is my December book :)

Once I got home, I got back into bed and DIED. The only reason I got out of bed, showered and wore ‘fresh’ clothes is because we had to go to the launch of wine whiskers. We won prizes (wine he he he). Had lotsa fun with friends. I didn’t take any pics at the event because I feel weird asking people to stop telling awesome stories and pose for the camera. Nobody wants to be that person. Don’t be that person :(

This was actually on my bucket list: taking one of those mirror pics. It was our first time, so we didn’t do a very good job ha ha ha.

Rainy Day

posted in: Ramblings | 0

I’m sitting in my car in the middle of town and its raining outside. I tried to take a picture, but it just didn’t capture how beautiful this morning is. Today didn’t get off to such a lekker (nice) start, but I’m grateful that I got up early and decided to work from my car. Rainy days are best experienced from inside your car or bed :)

This is PERFECT weather for a studio session. A glass of red wine to get things going and then put down some vocals. Awwww man! *Kicks rocks*. For the next album, I’m going to schedule studio sessions on days where its rainy.

Peace
