LISTEN TO: LAZY MINDS DIE – THE SOFT PROVINCE

spent the day chilling with dani dearest. played around with her polaroid. she snapped a photo of me holding her beautiful flowers…hehe! found some beautiful poppies on our stroll…makes me soo happy! stopped in at black star…excitement overload!! most amazing orange cake with persian figs on display (made from whole boiled oranges, garnished with cream cheese icing and seasonal preserved fruit, persian figs, pistachios and rose petals.)…drool!! nabbed ourselves a little pistachio olive oil cake with lemon glaze each and settled down with a coffee. on the way back passed the most stylish dog around town…hehe! saw some awesome window displays with native flora. so excited about my new fancy bracelets…eek! had one specially stamped with the words “DROOM” and “LEWE” which is afrikaans for dream + live…sums up my outlook on life…always follow your dreams and never give up living! off home now…but not before playing with lovely little rory (dani’s chocolate lab)…such a cutie!!

LISTEN TO: CHRYSTALISED (BENI REMIX) – OWL EYES

most AMAZING brunch with lien. corn fritter. avocado. sundried tomatoes. rocket. bacon + poached eggs. incredible! two coffees later off to newtown. lien has a vintage charity event. needs a vintage gown. this is going to be fun. hehe. managed to find a dress at the first vinnies we went to. gasp. cannot believe it was that easy. here i thought i’d be spending most of the day peeing my pants at lien dressed in various horrendous outfits. damn. haha. didn’t even get any snaps…oh well. browse through shops on king st. find some amazing platforms. must refrain from purchasing. gah! head to black star pastry…i am seriously obsessed! hehe. seems like most of newtown are too…line was so long. luckily managed to grab a seat. finally have our coffees. cutest sausage dog strolled by…i want! on the way home…spot a mannequin in a trash bin…soo random. cannot stop laughing. to quote lien…”get her while she’s depressed about being dumped!”…bahahaha!
