HOW TO ROCK YELLOW THIS SUMMER.

If there is a colour for summer 2017 then the colour has to be yellow. Everyone has been wearing the colour in so many different shades that not only have I been jealous but I had to write a post about it. Generally, I’m not a huge fan of the colour but yellow radiates beautifully on all skin tones and is a MUST have. Here are different ways to style the colour.

Formally

Just because yellow is a bright, happy colour doesn’t mean it can’t walk into the office/formal place.Formal doesn’t have a specific colour so rock your formal outfits and make sure they are yellow. You can also spice things up by adding some cool accessories.

 

 

Casually

The easiest way to rock this colour will have to be the casual way. What I love about casual outfits is that they are relaxed and define you when you are chilled down. To rock the colour yellow casually you can basically put a shirt and some sweatpants on and you’re good to go. If you are feeling a little freaky you can even add some leggings!

 

The baddie way

No one Rocks it like a baddie! To style your yellow outfits the baddie way you can colour coordinate any yellow pieces together and add accessories here and there to give your outfit that glow.  The main ingredient to a baddie outfit is the confidence,  so add some confidence to the mix and you’re good to go!

 

The elegant way

This way is more for if you’d like to be dressy and classy and is great if you are going out somewhere with some special people. Styling the colour yellow elegantly is also great because the colour will enhance your skin tone and will also give you that summer glow. Elegant pieces you can use are dresses and skirts!

 

Accessorize with the colour yellow.

If you don’t want to go all in with the mix matching and wearing a lot of yellow then you can wear the colour by using a touch of it in your accessories.  Here are a few examples.

 

That’s how easy it is to style the colour yellow.! I hope that these tips will help you rock the summer 2017 trend with the most stylish looks. Happy Styling!

4 TRENDS TO ROCK THIS SUMMER.

Summer has got to be the season for fashion.!! With beautiful skin tones and being able to show off some skin, what is there not to love?! Today I will be sharing with you 4 trends to make sure you slay this summer.

1. Culottes 

Culottes have been my favourite type of pants since over-sized denim jeans were the ish. However, I did not like how oversized denim jeans looked on me so I chose the next best thing.  I feel like culottes can turn an outfit from a basic to an A without even trying! The more reason I like them is that they look good on every body type and they can be dressed up or down depending on what you pair them up with.

 

 

2. Over the shoulder dresses and shirts.

What is summer without skirts and dresses?  For this summer showing off your shoulders is the in thing! What I love about over the shoulder dresses and shirts is that they are very cool pieces to wear as they bring in some fresh air. An add-on to them being great is that you can move these pieces from a summery casual outfit to a formal evening outfit with just what you wear the pieces with.

 

3. Skaters

Skaters have been the in thing since I can remember and for them to be coming back is doing some of us a favour.  If you are in a workspace or you’d love to look put together then I do recommend skaters because they look amazing! You can pair them up with some cool jackets. bodysuits or even off the shoulder shirts.

 

4. Block heel sandals

Now, who doesn’t love to look sexy but at the same time comfortable?!  Block heels are the in thing at the moment as they make sure you look good but at the same time, your feet aren’t paining. You can get these literally anywhere in all colours and styles so get yourself a pair. What I love about block heel sandals is that you can pair them up with any outfit from casual to formal and you would still look great.

Those are the 4 trendy pieces you should rock this summer. If you do like this post please give it a like and don’t forget to follow if this is your first time visiting. Mwah xo

MAGALIESBURG WINE #ADVENTUREAWAITS

Hey guys what is good, welcome right back to JourneySpeaks!!! On the 7th of November, Magaliesburg Wine was kind enough to invite me and a couple of other influential people on an adventure with them to the Magaliesburg mountains. Magaliesburg Wine took us on a  Magaliesburg Canopy Tour where we went zip lining and flying about in the air. Here’s my take on it.

20171117_101946

When I got the email from Megan inviting me to #adventureawaits I was way over happiness. Especially when I saw the date because I knew that I could take the day off and actually attend. We were all told that there’d be transport for everyone from a central point and that we should all be there at a specific time -but you know your girl had to be late :/ *still apologizing*. However, the Magaliesburg Wine team was so understanding and actually so sweet to wait for me and take me with.

Then the adventure began! From being on the bus Ben who is a winemaker got me clued up about the wine and how they operated and actually told me a bit more about Magaliesburg wine. I would say the ride from Sandton, Johannesburg to the Sparkling Waters Hotel & Spa was about 2 hours long, -which was a bit too long for me but it gave us enough time to get acquainted with each other.

When we got to the Sparkling Waters Hotel & Spa my first reaction was “what the heck are we doing here” I was absolutely confused, nervous and at the same time very excited! But all the people at the canopy tours were so welcoming and so kind that we just laughed off everything and focused on having a great time. Mike who was our “tour guide”  informed us about what we were going to do, safety procedures and all that was going to happen while making jokes so that we didn’t get too technical and lose focus.\

To get to the actual zip lining venue we then went on a top class limo ride which was about 15 minutes and even though the ride was rocky we still enjoyed it. While not forgetting that Mike and Godfrey got our brains heated by questions that seemed easy but we knew nothing about!

Upon getting to the actual zip lining venue I was really nervous because it literally looked like we were going to be flying on some ropes over some mountains. However, this all changed when I went on my first slide and began to get comfortable with the feel of the ropes and actually realized that it wasn’t that bad. Let’s just say the more you do it, the more comfortable you get!

It did get quite tricky when we got to I think the 5th slide and they told us we had to break on our own because we could be coming too fast. My reaction was “excuse me?” I have terrible trust issues with myself so for them to be telling me to depend on myself was really concerning lol. However, we all got the hang of it and continued on the great adventure.

After doing all the slides we then went on a small little hike where I felt they were setting us to death! However, it was really short so I was thankful to God for keeping me alive 😀 What was also nice about the adventure was the educational part of it as well. While we were busy having fun Mike would also add in a couple of educational comments and facts that we didn’t know about the earth and South Africa.

After flying about in the air and then going on the small hike we then went on to some lunch which consisted of some burgers and fries and then Magaliesburg wine fixed us up with some cocktails to just help us relax and wind down. We all then just had a great time talking about the adventure and getting to know each other more. I can definitely tell you that no one was ready for the ride back home.

I honestly had a great time that I will most definitely do zip lining again and a huge thank you goes to the whole of the Magaliesburg wine team for organizing such a great adventure because I wouldn’t have thought that flying in the air was great fun. I also met some really great people while on this adventure that I can now call friends. If you’re interested in zip lining or would just like to try something new I’d definitely recommend going on the canopy tour, it’s just amazing. I will also leave some links for you guys if any of you decide you want to try it out.

I will also have a blog post up about the Magaliesburg wine that I got to take home and maybe try out a few recipes so if you’re looking forward to that then make sure you are following the blog.
