MONOCHROME LOOK

MOOD: I´ll Try - December Streets 


 Monochrome looks are powerful and very chic. 
I personally love wearing a look in one color and add a dash of contrast with a garment or accessory in other color. For this season,I invite to try this type of look, dare to 
pick a shirt, trousers and heels in black and accessorize it with a contrast color like  cream or white or red or even pink!. 


Don´t you love this look? I do! 
I will be posting more monochrome ideas during this season ;) 

I am wearing:

Jacket: Pick and Pay 
Shirt: Forever 21
Jeans: H&M
Heels: Tennis (Colombia)

BACKSTAGE SHOOT FOR UNITED CHARTER SERVICES

MOOD: Fade Out Lines - The Avener 



 May has been a very hectic month which I love! This week, I was part of the shoot for United Charter Services, a local company of luxury private jets.
 We shot all day from sunrise to sunset at Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg. The production team were only women and I loved it. When women get together it can either be a nightmare or can be absolutely lovely - which was the case. 
This day was totally amazing :) I worked with very interesting and talented women who made me feel really inspired. 

Here some pictures of backstage. I can't wait to see the final result which will be released in 3 weeks time. 
7:00 am in the morning, the temperature was really cold, but loving the light and the view. I have always said that there is something special about the light in South Africa. Probably because we are in the south of the South Hemisphere. 

 Love my white dress which made me feel like wearing a wedding dress again :) 

Thanks for reading.

MI FIRST VIDEO AS YOUTUBER COOKING A VERY HEALTHTY RECIPE

Cooking is one of my passions.
I started with my series of cooking recipes that I love and my friends have been asking me to share. 

My first video is about how to cook a very yummy Beetroot Hummus, perfect as starter, main course or for your kiddies lunch boxes. Beetroot is an excellent source of iron, vitamin A, C, folic acid and chickpeas are rich in protein and magnesium.

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE SON AFRICAN FASHION: THE OUTFIT I DESIGNED FOR MY SON AND ME


Mother's Day is around the corner and I wanted to share these pictures that I took last year with my son when he was smaller. As some of you know, I have a clothing label called My Latina. I had to put this on stand by as I focused my energy and time on my son, and also building up my blog. I designed this african "Like Mother, Like Son" outfit which I totally love. 
The special thing about this outfit is that I sewed my son's shirt with my own hands!  
My son was born in Africa thats why I love dressing him up with African fabrics. 
Aren't both these looks lovely? 

I am wearing:

Shirt: Gap 
Skirt: My Latina Fashion
Heels: H&M

Luka is wearing:

NO HEELS ON SUNDAYS: DENIM DRESS WITH CONVERS

Denim is always timeless. Garments made with this fabric are versatile, you can wear them with sneakers to have a laid back look, or with high heels to look smart. 
I am carrying on with my campaign about not wearing heels on Sundays and giving you some ideas about how to look good wearing flat shoes or sneakers. 
I love this look, the hat give it the formal touch. 
A denim dress is always a must have garment as it comes back between seasons. 

I am wearing:

Dress: Jet
Sneakers: Convers
Hat: Cotton On
