my Love is for Disney

sigh..I still remember so fondly coming home, oh sorry, racing home after school to catch Disney's Cartoon Cafe (DCC) on yotv. That was one of the greatest times of my life. Waking up at 5a.m so that I don't miss a single show. I absolutely love Disney and all its magical characters ever since my first VHS (yes, VHS) of The Lion King. And since then I've been hooked! The Lion King 1 &  2 and then the Toy Story franchise and everything in between.

I even had the Disney bubble baths, shampoo and lotions! I still remember the theme songs to every Disney cartoon be it Herculese, 101 dalmations or Goof Troop. I even remember the countless letters I had written in to DCC with the famous tagline "DCC is the BOMB!!"..Lol good times good times..

Now at the youthful age of 21 I am proud to say that I am still a die hard fan of the Disney franchise, of all the past and present movies and all the characters especially my favourite, Mickey mouse (who I called my bf for a crazy number of years). I still enjoy Mickey Mouse Club House on DisneyJnr. There is something just so magical about it all. And I had the stickers, the sticker book collections.

I even used to save as much as I could (my parents never understood or funded my obsession -__-) to buy Disney products such as crayons and pastels and colouring books. And I still have them all till this day! So I might be the ultimate Disney fan..but what can I say, my love is for Disney <3...

S0o0oo Adorbs!

I absolutely absolutely adore cats and kittens. They are one of my most favourite things. Ever! I've had kittens and cats ever since I was little and I think my love for them just keeps on growing..Take a look at this adorable pic (courtesy of pinteresy <3) and see how quick you become a cat lover!

Beauty and a Beast

I have always believed that it is absolutely imperative for a woman to take care and look good. Not for others, but for herself. The goal isn't to be skinny or a size 0, but it is rather to look good, smell good and feel good. To feel better about yourself knowing you are the best you tried to be. And to smile and spread your happiness..So work like a beast ladies, that is how you gonna look like a beauty..

Whimsical wonderer

You may know (or not!) by now, that I'm a sparkly eyed, day dreaming, fairytale living, whimsical girl refusing to grow up. I like to think that I live in a world of fairies and secret gardens. Sadly, that is not the case..sigh..but that doesn't mean I have to stop dreaming.. All I gotta do is close my eyes and let my imagination take over so I can sleep in an open field, travel west and walk in the night...
in the beautiful words of Sylvia Plath..

intolerant bugger!

I know this is an ugly trait but I really do try to tolerate people but there are those people who are, well, just intolerable...

I.e: durban taxi drivers; slow nervous drivers; people who stop in the middle of the shopping mall to talk; people who hit your ankles from behind with their trolleys; service providers who don't know their job; parents who can't control their kids in public...oh the list goes on and on and on....

There are literally millions of ocean and marine images available but I came across this one and just had to share it. I have always been a lover of all things ocean and marine and it has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. There's just something so magical about it. I've always been a sort of whimsical fairytale kinda character and the ocean has always enchanted me.
I have the most beautiful memories growing up going to the beach every weekend if I had my way and just looking out to the sea and then getting lost in all it's glory. I loved swimming and being in the water. Always the first to go in and last to come out..
The salty scent of the water, the dreamy colours of the sea, the sound of waves crashing. This is beauty for me. That is my peace.

Whenever I am stressed, or things get too hectic, the beach has always been my go-to place. And as many people there may have been around, it was still my private retreat. Nothing and nobody mattered..

I absolutely love dolphins and waking up at 6 for a part time job at the flea market certainly had its perks. I was fortunate enough to witness beautiful bottle nosed dolphins every Sunday morning as they glistened in the gorgeous Durban sunrise. It's in moments like those that I knew everything's gonna be okay and that the world isn't all that bad..

One of my favourite things would definitely have to be walking the pier. Right to the end! Watching the waves crash through the little crevices of the concrete pier. Until I reach the very end, my happiness.. Night or day, there's nothing more magical to me..

So yeah, this picture isn't anything out of the ordinary except that to me its the path to my magical world where I swim with the dolphins and whales and where I can forget about all the troubles of the world..

My magical abode..

Be your Best Self

I think people need to remember and live by these words. We always competing with others, sizing them up, aiming to be better than them. But when all is said and done, there is no true contentment in that. When you constantly in the race of being better you will never feel victorious. Like an appetite that cannot be satiated. There will always seem to be somebody one step ahead of you and you will live a life of misery shackled by your own chains of perception. Be your best self, for that is all that matters..

Awesome Aunt!

I have been an aunt since the age of 6! With my brother's first daughter in 1998 and then his second daughter one year later. My eldest sister soon followed the trend adding three more girls to the family. I am now a very proud and very young aunt to 5 nieces and 2 nephews. My brother's girls are often mistaken as my siblings as the age gap is very small. I practically was a baby myself while changing their diapers! I literally grew up with my nieces and nephews, teaching them and at times learning from them. Today, they rarely refer to me as their aunt, but more as their friend, because that's what we have become. I am also proud to say that they turned out to be pretty cool kids. I've had a great time in helping to rear them and made absolutely awesome memories. So I think it's pretty safe to say I've done a good job with them and that I'm not so stressed about having my own kids some day. (if 15years of experience isn't enough then I don't what is!).. Oh oh, and by the way, they are all pretty awesome...;)

the way I are

Lol that is the truth! :p
