My top winter must haves.

Uncategorized

So in South-Africa it is speedy turning into winter and I think most of us are not really ready for the new season to begin. Winter is my favourite season of the year and I love it so much. Being able to cuddle up under a blanket and having an excuse to drink lots of steamy hot chocolate is always a bonus. So here are my top winter must haves.

Jean jackets

A jean jacket is definitely a staple item in my closet throughout the year but is especially great in the winter times. It is a great item for layering and goes with almost everything and every style. It can be dressed up and dressed down and it is just really worth investing in one.

Ankle booties

Ankle faux stade tan booties has been a “wear everyday item” for me since last winter and is still one of my favourites. It makes every average outfit look 10 times cuter and makes you look like you actually thought about what you are going to wear.

Ugs 

Yes I know a lot of you won’t agree with me on this one and yes I know its not a fashion statement anymore , but that NOT why its one of my top winter must haves. Since 2010 those fluffy “slipper like” shoes have been one of my favourite heat givers in my closet. I am one of those people who are always freezing and my Ugs have gotten me through a lot of cold winter. They are not something that I would normally wear out in public but is definitely a great cozy winters afternoon chill and cuddle item.

Hoody

This is such an obvious one and I think everyone knows it and wears it , but I’m not talking about an average hoody. Im talking about stylish hoodies. A hoody is actually quite easy to dress up if you just know how to. There are a lot of inspiration ideas on how to style up your hoodies on Pinterest and We heart it . If I were you I would go and invest some money into some nice quality hoodies since they are cozy and can be styled up when needed.

I hope you guys enjoyed this weeks posts.

My top 3 favourite places in the world.

Uncategorized

I live in South-Africa which yes is a beautiful country with all its vibrant and colourful aspects. Our country has one of the seven wonders of the world ( Table mountain-CapeTown) and has our beloved Kruger National Park which is one of our tourism attraction and yes of course one of my favourite places in the world is in my beautiful country but there are a few other ones that I’m also completely involve with.

Cape Town

Cape town would definitely be my first words when someone asks me where my favourite place in the world is. It is absolutely gorgeous with all the colors and unique aspects such as Robin Island where one of our nations best leader Nelson Mandela was in the jail for 27 years. Cape town just has this amazing vibe to it. My favourite coffee shop in Cape town would have to be  Truth Coffee . The student life in Cape Town is mind-blowing and the poeple is always so kind.

Budapest

I visited Budapest in 2013 and I can honestly say that Budapest has completely won my heart. All the old building has walls that tells so many stories. The architectural designs in Budapest is breathtaking. The food is incredible with all the sorts of stews you can imagine . When I was in Budapest we visited a lot of their museums and as a person who loves history I can definitely say that they are one of the countries who should be mentioned and visited more often.

Lesotho

Since I visited Lesotho for the first time in 2009 I was absolutely hooked. It is a small country in the middle of South Africa but it is indeed its own country. This place is just one of my favourite places to go on holiday. We usually go in winter time when it is snowing there and since it doesn’t snow in South-Africa it is an amazing experience to have. We always stay at the cutest little farm called Wyndford Holiday Farm. That place just gives you such a cozy and warm feeling and serves the most wonderful foods. When we go to Lesotho we usually go to Afriski (one of the best known ski resorts) to go skiing which is so much fun.

 

There are definitely a billion places that I still want to go visit. These are just my top 3 favourite places that I have visited so far and that has made a great impression on me.

Hope you enjoyed

Love Carmen
