In Namibia those born after Independence are often called the "born frees". This picture just inspires me to celebrate my individual independence and take every day as it comes![I was born free after all] It brings back memories of the poem Dream of This by Marianne Williamson
"You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people do not feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.It is not just in some of us, it is in all of us."

Proudly African

While getting my monthly dose of Glamour, I came across loin cloth and ashes, a dynamic South African design label that once again makes me PROUD to be African.

Doing it myself

It has been a semi eventful weekend. I got inspired by Takeoffyourclothes to do this t-shirt dress and i spent Friday trying to make my own [amateur-ish] version. Because I'm very petite, I had to find reasonably small men's shirts, which is not as easy as it may seem.
The dress did turn out better than i expected and I took pics of it to post on the blog but unfortunately the camera had a major malfunction and ALL my pictures were erased. I haven't fixed the problem yet so I had to take these pictures with a phone. [Made a second one just for practice!]

I've just recently jumped onto the DIY bandwagon and for a first project, I'm really proud of myself.
What do you think?

 Image from Post secret

I just got a phone call from a really dear friend and she reminded me that life is what you make of it. I was feeling a little down and out earlier, about nothing in particular, but it was just one of those days.

I am generally scared of large open spaces BECAUSE they make me feel insignificant but i love being out on rooftops or on empty roads early in the mornings or late at night just because they do make my problems seem tiny. I love the general idea of  posting random secrets to be published for the world to see. I find many of the secrets inspirational and wonder about the people who wrote and sent them. I would post a secret myself but I fear that I don't have any secrets worthwhile?
I'll give it a try.One day soon
Anyone hearing Secrets by One republic in the background?

Maximum height

This is one of my favourite pics ever. This is one of my best friends V showing that a little attitude goes a long way. Given we were a little drunk, it was a memorable night. I miss her.
