Here are some pics I took on my cellphone over the festive season. I have not been carrying my regular camera. I will try and get a new layout for the blog for the new year. I will be back in full swing soon- I promise!
Talk about the find of the day, check out this African mask/head brooch by Cartier. It is a vintage piece from the 1950’s era.
The details fuse together intricately to create a very complimenting finished product. I especially love the earrings and the neck rings, not to mention the construction in the back.
I love me some Badu! For more on miss Badu for Givenchy, click here.
Rainbow Nation is a term coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu to describe post-apartheid South Africa, after South Africa’s first fully democratic election in 1994. The phrase was elaborated upon by President Nelson Mandela in his first month of office

I have been into Tom Daley for a while now ever since he burst onto the scene at a diving event some few Olympics ago.
And I have to say that it is not for the obvious reasons that you might think. Lets face it, Olympic athletes usually have those idealized Adonis type bodies…so Tom Daley is no exception, quite frankly, he has a hot body by everyday standards but I have seen better at the Olympics.
What I am trying to say is that I have been into him but mostly because of his underdog success story of beating the odds. I am a champion for underdogs.
The cute Olympic medalist and diver from Great Britain with a huge gay following and who is constantly hounded by gay rumors has something to say. He spoke from the heart in a very eloquent video statement about his sexuality and the person he is dating. I have to say I was touched by his courage.
We all desire and want to love and be loved.
Leona Lewis is truly one of my favorite singers and it baffles me how underrated her mega voice is in the charts. ANYWAY, I have been listening to her holiday album and I have a few favorites like this one and this one.
One More Sleep is her latest single off the album and the video just got released a few hours ago. Enjoy!
