I had the strangest day! I got to work and about 3 minutes later the fire alarm went off and it was not a drill. Yep, the roof of our building was on fire! Luckily the fire is out now and I don’t think the damage is very bad. That is life, the one moment you are ready to get into a day’s work and the next you are on a field looking at smoke coming out of your office building. Expect the unexpected? I suppose we never know what is around the corner.
On another note, I am happy to be blogging regularly now. I hope to keep it up. Thanks for sticking with me Ok, how many smiley faces can one have in one blog post?
About the outfit…
This shirt is another one of those items I have had for a while. Can you say fashion hoarder? Rueben bought it for me and I was hoping to wear it to one of our afternoon dates but then I forgot. lol. I adore novelty prints so this flamingo print shirt is right up my alley. I think I will make a concerted effort to try and wear what I own from now on. Dare I say, I will go on a shopping ban? Um, I’ll think about it.
Shirt and Jeans: Zara; Shoes: Cotton On; Earrings: Chatuchak Market in Bangkok; Spectacles: Ray Ban;

Hey! I thought I’d go back to my roots and review a market. The Kirstenbosch Craft Market is a lovely market located at the Stone Cottages in Kirstenbosch diagonally opposite the entrance to Kirstenbosch Garden. The market happens every last Sunday of the month except for Winter. It is truly a craft market. There is a rule that all the goods must be made by the sellers so you won’t be finding any Chinatown wares here. As you can see in the pics below there is some cute stuff to buy. This is definitely not the place to go looking for fashion though but that’s ok. The thing I love most about this market is the location. Kirstenbosch is just so beautiful! There are some food stalls but not too many since the focus of this market is crafts. They always have live music as well which is a plus. You can buy something to eat, sit on the grass and listen to the live music. Do pay a visit if you are looking for a charming way to spend a Sunday.
