A few months ago I had won a giveaway held by Rachael from Talk2TheTrees
It was a lucky draw and the prize a voucher from Love, Erica jewelry.
You have no idea how exited I was when I heard that I had won.
So my prize arrived after a few hiccups with the South African post office.
But thankfully Erica was patient and kind and even sent me an extra gift even though the situation was completely out of her control and not her fault.
When I opened the parcel I was greeted by 2 thoughtful letters and a pretty bag.
Inside the bag I got:
These lovely gifts.
I want to thank Erica for making me feel so special and having so much patience.
Rachael thank you for the giveaway and unknowingly introducing me to Erica who I see as a friend even though we have never met.
Love and hugs

My favorite outfit from Forever New
The best company and love of my life (wearing his new Mingo Lamberti T-shirt)
What do all these 3 things have in common?
An awesome holiday!
This is the coolest lamp ever!!
I will own you one day…
It is fittingly named: REVITALIZER
“The Revitalizer is a wax-lamp that re-creates itself over time, allowing its owner to re-use it and observe the growing-old,dying and rebirth cycle of the lamp. The high voltage bulb inside the lamp melts the wax slowly and after all the wax melts down into the cup, the heat resistance inside the core helps the wax to create a new mould. Once the wax cools down and take its shape, the user can take it out and replace it into the top part of the lamp. The soft lamp shade that revitalizer gives out and various shapes it forms while melting, creates surprise and feeling of relaxation.” Merve Kahraman
My second favourite is
Hybrid no 2
“HYBRID collection was inspired by the mythologies of parahumans. This anthro chair unions with its owner, merging into one. It is entirely handmade and available in different leathers.”
Last but not least:
L’ART DE LA SEDUCTION
“The “Seduction Series” is a new experience emphasizing the aromas distinctive to Remy Martin. These unique items of glassware and serving accessories are intended to sensitize people to the expectation of complex olfactory experiences by using specific gestures. The service will be exclusive to private events and parties and it brings a youthful way to celebrate the exceptional aromatic profiles of Remy Martin.” Merve Kahraman

I just scanned through 315 blog posts and 20 emails.
I am 2 weeks into Varsity and already I have no time for my own blog, reading my fav blogs or replying on mails.
I am not complaining, I am actually extremely grateful and exited about this opportunity. With that said I do miss the relaxed life of working from home and waking up at 8 am everyday.
In conclusion I would just like to say that I have been craving an endless amount of candy today and feel the need to make you crave as well.
No, I am not a sour puss! I just prefer to love and adore my hubby 375 days a year and not just on one.
But at least I am posting a cute pic.
Since orientation has started at university I have had no time to blog or read blogs.
I set up I think 2? So apologies, but I have to admit I am having a lot of fun and can not wait for classes to start.
Just for fun, here is a few things I realized this week:
Comfy shoes are key
Always have a bottle of water with you
Take something to nibble on, classes are long and you get hungry.
Students are mostly friendly and helpful
Always thank people who help you (specially lecturers and admin)
Always apologize when you were in the wrong
Don’t be shy
Keep on smiling, it does wonders
Greet people even if you don’t know them
Work hard and pay attention
These are only a few things I want to mention, there are lost more but I actually have a job as well so got to get to that.
