skirt length

every time i see a woman wearing a skirt that falls to her knees or longer i get a little thrill. high-waisted and mid-calf is pretty much my favourite look, and i’m always appreciative of a maxi skirt (if done right, not matthew williamson boho)

père lachaise

i had been to père lachaise cemetery once before on a previous trip to paris, but had literally run in and out in a frenzy of sightseeing just to look at jim morrison’s grave (one of those shameless things you just have to do, like visiting the eiffel tower.) this time round i had plenty of time to walk all through the huge grounds. i honestly think it is one of the most beautiful places in paris – mostly because of the tree lined avenues and the feeling of escaping the city as soon as you’re within its walls.

you might get sick of my paris bla bla bla paris posts in the following days (i apologise in advance, just let me get it out of my system). i still have to sort through my photos, so in the meantime i thought i’d share excerpts from one of the magazines that air france gives out free of charge to their passengers at the airports and in their planes. not anything like south african airways’ little sawubona mag, mind you…

toodeloo!

i’ll be gone for ten days, so it’s going to be a bit quiet around here. regular posting to resume soon.

hit-the-road

september music mix is here! this is not really a ‘road trip’ mix, per se (no tracy chapman / fast car …) – but certainly tunes i love playing in my car. load up your ipod and go for a drive… sing along, too.

old stellenbosch

i was lucky enough to get my paws on a box of original vintage photos of stellenbosch, taken by photographer christo s. botha, who started taking photos of the town as a student in 1938.  the photos are from a book called discover historic stellenbosch. if you’re a stellenbosch resident (or frequent visitor) you’ll recognise all these spots…

all day day light

you might have noticed the lack of new posts here today – due to the usual reasons (busy busy busy real life bla bla bla). well, i’ll leave you with at least a little something on this lovely friday, in honour of the noticeable change of season around here. here’s the music video for the morning benders song all day day light:
