Breakfast, Casual Friday and Pinktober



This blogging thing is rather addictive, I think of so many things to “blog” about, prepare to do so, and end up reading all the interesting blogs that have been updated,  forgetting my own!

This week has been really crazy, I have been in and out of client meetings,  playing soccer mom and attending breakfasts, lunches and suppers in between.  I attended a very inspiring breakfast on Friday, where the guest speaker was Monique Strydom, the SA tourist who was held captive along with her husband in the Philippine jungle for 4 months. She is an amazing woman, who after 12 years can share this horrific experience with strangers using a touch of humour. I learnt many important lessons, the most important one is the ability to try to maintain a positive mental attitude (PMA) regardless of your external situations – as such having control over your reactions to circumstances. This is such a simple yet profound lesson, as it can be refer to anyone, children and adults alike. I will endeavor to keep this in mind when dealing with what life throws my way.

I also received my package from Asos UK arrived. Yay! I’m really happy with this online purchase: two maxi dresses on their sale. The only downfall of buying on this site is the high customs duty.  Pics of these put together in an outfit will follow as soon as the weather permits.


I am slowly putting together pics to upload to the blog, and its taking a lot longer than I anticipated.

As a start, here’s my casual Friday outfit from last week…

Pink breast cancer awareness arm band for a cause that’s close to my heart.  I’m supporting Pinktober in all earnestness this month, including the pink ribbon.

Ciao for now,
