Summer Afternoon, Photo diary.

Monday, 1 August 2011


A beautiful summer's afternoon, with a cloudless sky and the sun shining as bright as ever, spent with amazing people..

My sister Kezia, my friend Titi and I spent the afternoon at Hyde Park yesterday, just soaking up the sun and having a jolly good time. Titi brought along her awesome home made cocktail and we enjoyed it with snacks, while jamming to Kezia's impressive music playlist. Each song brought with it memories and we talked for ages about them. It was lovely. Hope you had a good weekend too! xo

WOw, you guys give me something to aspire to for back-to-school shopping. Your friend, Titi, looks like a cross between Naomi Campbell and Keke Palmer. You, Shirley kind of resemble Jennifer Hudson, and your sister looks like Nia Long especially in the fifth picture.All beautiful though. I hope I didn't sound like a mad scientist there hehe. But if you have any advice for finding cheap back to school clothes let on please!

The Queen of Hearts said...

I remember reading your old post about how you were teased as a child and I honestly think that's ridiculous. You are clearly a stunning girl, both then and before. Every time I view one of your posts, I am completely blown away. Completely. And you have a stunning sister and best friend as well.
