Empowering Myself With Patience And Determination

I know this a very different and unusual post in comparison to what I originally write about, however, I thought the message behind this shoot was important to share. I recently did a shoot for a friend of mine who is a professional photographer, she had asked me to model for her in a very intimate shoot. At first I was nervous about the whole thing mainly because I’m not the sexy kind of girl at all! And I’m okay with, but now how am I suppose to pose in front of a camera and make people believe I’m sexy. But to my surprise the whole shoot was a great success and it helped me love myself more. We all have insecurities but we can work on those insecurities and turn them into our strengths.

The Internet has become a space filled with negativity and positivity depending on where you’re looking. When I was growing up there weren’t social media platforms which encouraged self-love or helped a person to learn to be comfortable in their skin, instead it showed me what was accepted by society and what wasn’t. However, as the future generation we can change that and remind young people behind us that they can be whoever they want to be and no matter what they look like, they will be loved, because beauty comes in “endless amount of forms and we need to recognise that.” – Alessia Cara.

Exploring The Vineyard of Paarl

Cape Town is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities in South Africa. The beautiful view of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head is one I will never get tired of looking at when driving into the city. While in Cape Town I had the time to explore some of the hot spots of the city and dine out at some of the cutest restaurants and cafes. A cafe that I really enjoyed was ‘The Big Box’ a place where you can play any board game imaginable while you wait for your food, you’ll even forget you ordered food with the board games keeping you so entertained.

However the best thing I did manage to do while I was in Cape Town was go wine tasting. Being an enthusiastic fan of wine it wouldn’t have been right for me to have left the Western Cape without quenching my thirst.

My Internship Experience & Tips For You

First of all I would like to apologise for my sudden absence from blogging. I was in Cape Town for a short while working and learning under the amazing team of Marie Claire South Africa, and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life, so far. Even though I was in the beautiful city for work related reasons I did manage to sneak in some fun and luxury time which I will share with you later this week.
