New Bikini

“I have too many black, white and grey clothes.” Said by me, NEVER.
I love my signature palette to death, and I didn’t hesitate to extend it to my beach/pool wardrobe! Haha! I loveeee the chevron details, and the bottoms are high waisted…giving some of that 50’s glamour, I’m so down with that!
But don’t worry, I also picked up some bright and beautiful colours too, which I’ll be sharing on the blog soon! I feel like I’ll have an excuse to step out of my usual, while i’m out here in LA!

Oh and for those of you who don’t know, I’m visiting LA for the first time! My friend Missy invited me to come, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m actually blogging from the comfort of her beautiful apartment!

I would like to organise some sort of a meet and greet while i’m out here, but I’m definitely going to be at the Generation Beauty Event, so if you can, come along and say hi! (More details to follow.)

I’m now going to finish off my breakfast, edit a Vlog and GRWM video (both will be up later today!),
then I’ll be off to catch some of this Cali sun. I’m one happy bunny! 🙂

    I love your bikini. High–wasit swim wear are perfect for highlighting curves and slimming the waist.

    Hi Shirley 🙂 I’m glad you arrived safely! I’m looking forward to updates about your stay in LA. I’ll be living vicariously through you: winter is settling in here in South Africa… 🙁

    Hi Shirley! I really love your style (I’ve been watching you on youtube for years lol)! I just wanted to ask you what advice you have for new bloggers/youtubers/lookbookers etc. It’s so easy to get discouraged when you post stuff, on your blog for instance, but you don’t really have a steady audience. When you started out on these various platforms what kept you going, and stopped you from giving up? How were you able to get your work out there and build an audience?
    I hope you are doing well, and have a lovely day/evening 🙂
