Heart of Africa | Fashion Inspiration

Hello lovelies! Sorry for the long absence – I have been overlanding through Africa (Namibia, Botswana & Vic Falls in Zimbabwe) for 2 weeks – an unforgettable, amazing and utterly special experience. Bush camping inthe wild, seeing elephants on the side of the road, marvelling at sky-scraper rock formations, being enthralled by magical sunsets and falling asleep to the sound of birds, bush-babies and the night…

And now in light of that FANTASTIC experience (by Africa Travel Co. in case you were wondering), I’m inspired to share some African-esque fashion ideas. Live the WILD girls!

Christmas DIY Decor Ideas

I love the fun around Christmastime… the pretty decorations always inspire me to ‘do my own house’…but so many times it never happens – it’s just some tinsel, a play-play tree, and a disco ball strung up! I love seeing the home stores showoff their stunning Christmas decor and settings, makes me want my own huge dining room so I can decorate the table…one day!

Anyway, for those like me who simply cannot spent fortunes on Christmas decor, I’ve hunted around for some cool DIY ideas to get inspired this Christmas – check out these cool tips on creating your own budget-conscious decorations 🙂
