Haven't been done in a while - Voluptuous Vixen of the week

The poet, performer, actress, presenter and producer Lebogang Mashile, the daughter of exiled South Africans was born in the U.S. in 1979. At the age of sixteen she and her parents returned to their home country, it was while she was studying law and international relations at Wits University in Johannesburg South Africa, that the desire to work as an artist took hold of her.

In her work as a life skills facilitator for adolescents - focusing on topics like gender issues, teamwork and sexuality - poetry has been her preferred medium. Mashile won the 2006 Noma Award for her poetry collection. In a Ribbon of Rhythm. She is a visual verbalist, and an icon of modern South African poetry.

I admire her because she's bold and unapologetic for her weight. She refuses to hate her body, or to sell herself and her work short in order to gain fame. She is known for her afro-centric dress sense, always sporting her afro or her colorful turbans.

She's a great performer

Random outfit running around town

I wore this outfit around town, while doing some errands for the house. I really wanted to wear a dress and I love how it turned with my boots and these tights. I'm in love with anything that is animal printed and this belt is one of my fav's. My collection of animal print is really thin, but give me sometime, I'll change that.

Weekend Recap

I went to the theatre with my sister this weekend, to see a play called plastics, it was directed by my cousin so we went to support her. The play is about a group of women who are living out of their means and are concerned with keeping up appearences. I think everyone invloved in the play did a good job.
Two tickets for plasitcs please!

 This past weeked was another long weekend, but it went by so quickly! it is back to the drudgery and realities of the 9-5. I had a hair crisis this whole weekend, I undid my braids, which I'd have for a month and a half, after undoing them I wanted to kick myself because I realised, I'm broke at the moment so I can't get a decent hairdo. I decided to get a nice natural hairdo (cornrows), which I think I look good in, but the only problem with cornrows is that they do not last for long. So, in 2 weeks or so I'll have to get my hair done again, I do not know if my financail situation would have changed by then.  I just hope and pray that I'll have more money in 2 weeks time, God delivers so I'll keep the hope.
This is my angry face, my hair is driving me mad
