I’m lovin Bloglovin

Hi guys! If you have a Bloglovin account then you can skip over this post and read about the boots in the post below. If you don’t have an account and don’t mind listening to my rambling then please keep on reading.

If you’ve read the About section then you’ll know that I’m passionate about technology. More specifically, I am passionate about technology that makes your life easier or improves it any way. One piece of technology that did this for me was BlogLovin.

I read lots and lots and blogs and I absolutely love doing so. I used to bookmark my favourites and then check each and every blog on a daily basis. We all know that bloggers update their blogs at different times with different frequencies. So, from time to time I’d be checking blogs that were not updated or I’d checked just before a blog was updated and then on the next day I’d read a post that was a day old.

I realised that I had to abandon my bookmarking ways and I decided to try Bloglovin out. Now I love it to bits!

I have all my favourite blogs saved and when I log in I get to see how many new posts there are. I love knowing how many new posts I have to read.

Some more benefits:

  • You have your favourite blog list everywhere you go. Not just on one PC or cellphone.
  • Bloglovin can help you find great new blogs by browsing the “Popular” and “Blogs” pages. I have found many of my new favourite blogs through Bloglovin.
  • The user interface is very clean and easy to use. So, no time wasted on trying to figure out how it works.

OK, that enough of me gushing over Bloglovin. Hope you guys have an awesome weekend!

Lace me-up

So, I’m a shoe person. I’ve loved shoes for as long as I can remember. I even love looking at pictures of shoes. So, I decided to take a few of my new boots.

They are a pair of Aldo combat lace-up boots brought over from USA. I have been searching high and low for combat lace-ups in Cape Town shops and could only find them for men. When I heard that my friend was visiting for the World Cup I decided to take advantage and got him to bring these over.

I was so obssessed with combact lace-ups that I made this Polyvore set back in February:

Lace-ups

I’m glad I finally have a pair and please forgive me if I wear them with all of my outfits. For those in South Africa looking for lace-ups, I have seen worker style lace-up boots at Foschini and Mr Price. We’ll be needing lots of pairs of boots to keep warm this Winter.

I was there

I’ve never really been into soccer, but the world cup is being hosted in my country and it is impossible to get swept into the excitement of it all. I was lucky enough to go and see the Portugual vs Korea DPR game yesterday. All I can say is that was an amazing experience. Being one of 60 000 people in a stadium where a worldwide event is being televised to millions is really something special.

The atmosphere in the stadium was awesome. Everybody looked so happy blowing their vuvuzelas, taking many pictures and screaming for Christiano Ronaldo. The score ended up being 7 Portugual – Korea DPR 0. I’m really glad I got to see that! It’s not everyday that 7 goals are scored by one team in one game.

I brought my point-and-shoot camera along so we could snap some quick pics.

We had tequillas to warm up before we walked to the stadium.

I’m always looking around for awesome fashion and I spotted this woman wearing these killer boots on the way back from the stadium. Wow! I admire for wearing those to a world cup match. There’s lots of walking involved. Fierce!

Hope all this talk of soccer didn’t bore you.

Sunday Drive

Wow! What a day! I hope your Monday went well. I went to a World Cup game today. It was quite an experience. I plan to write a post about it even though it is a bit off topic. An event like that definitely needs to be documented.

Now, back to the reason I’m writing this post. I discovered recently that taking drives to beautiful locations is one of my favourite things to do. I like the way that picturesque surroundings makes me feel. It’s very relaxing. It’s nice to take a time-out from the chaos of life.

On Sunday my boyfriend and I decided to take a drive to Kalk Bay to look at some of the vintage odds and ends. I enjoy going to Kalk Bay every now and then. They have great shops and there is such a relaxed vibe. It got very cold in Kalk Bay so we left. On the way home we noticed that weather was much warmer in Muizenberg and decided to stop at a bridge over a lake to snap some pics. I just loved the location.

I wore a dress, tights and flats. Definitely a comfy outfit to match a relaxed day. I was happy that the sun was shining as it allowed me to actually wear a dress. It has been extremely cold in Cape Town as of late!

What do you like to do on Sundays?
