My Partner Dresses Me Challenge

Last month, whilst planning for the month of November, we decided it would be fun to do +mypartnerdressesmechallenge on Instagram. We put it out on the Gram and for a very small brand, Matilda and I were quite honoured and thrilled at the response. In the end, we were ten ladies participating.

Figuring it out

From the beginniing of our style journey Belinda and I wanted to be brand ambassadors. We just didn’t know how to do this. Every step of growing our social media has been about figuring things out. We have learned so much already and still we don’t know even half of it. We also didn’t want to be associated with a brand that didn’t have the same ethos as us. From the very start we decided to work hard at building a presence on social media, but also stay true to who we are.

Lessons from The White Shirt Challenge

White shirts are a great staple for the spring/summer seasons. They are light and airy and generally work for all skin tones. And of course, there are variants of white, so if a bright/stark white, doesn’t work for you, you could try off-white, stone, beige, cream or taupe. So many options.

A vintage thrift a(fair)

I never thought that I would be selling pre-loved clothing at an outdoor market. Never did I imagine that I would get up at an ungodly hour to drive to a location, help to set up a stall, unpack a lot of stuff and be a vendor for a day.

Almost fifty

I intend to stay alive until I am at least a hundred and sixteen years old. This statement may seem silly to you, but to me it means that I will be halfway through my life at fifty eight. In ten years time I will still have fifty eight years to live, really live.

“Wearing it Twice” Challenge

If you follow us on Instagram, you will know that Matilda and I are fond of doing challenges. We love to push ourselves where fashion is concerned. Neither one of us, has any kind of training or history of working in the fashion industry. We are just a couple of moms who got bored with life and decided to join Social Media, and share our journey with fashion very publicly! Scary!!! We know, but we’re anything but shy of a challenge, so the challenges we set out to do every month on IG, reflect how we feel on the inside – Doing it afraid!

Self-Compassion

Self-compassion isn’t a term that I was familiar with until it came up in my Instagram feed. I was intrigued immediately. I have practiced self-love and self- care , but self-compassion is new territory for me.
