It’s been 11months since I last posted…. I am shocked and a little impressed as well. I am living to the fullest where previously I was not. So I considered deleting this blog, but as I opened it today I realized that I should rather use it as inspiration. So I might not post often and it will probably not be about fashion, food and parties but I will use it to tell stories and ground myself after a day or week of giving pieces of myself to the world. This is a new chapter for my blog, let’s call the previous chapter “Searching” and this chapter “Singing all the way on the golden highway”
Always believe in you
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

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 decided to spoil myself a bit the other day, I bought a ring.
I saw it on Citimob and fell in love.
The designer is Famke Koene.
As plain as this ring looks you will not believe how flattering and elegant it looks when worn.
I adore my ring!
Thanks Kim Grey & Citimob for making it possible to purchase this beauty.
