Wearing Black in Spring

South-african-plus-size-blog, south-african-plus-size-blogger
It's ridiculous to me that on a weekend it could be bitey enuf for me to wear a poloneck and a few days later, it's 30+ degrees outside. Now it's raining (blessing!) and cold but I know the heat is out there. Lurking and licking its lips. I kind of hate winter now -- it was appealing when I believed I could get rich and spend my perpetually wintry life being luxurious and doing luxury bitch things but I'm not sure about this warm thing either, hey.

New Place Wish List

At the end of September, I packed up my life -- notebooks, piles of notebooks, magazines and books, piles of clothes and kid sister -- and moved house. It was exhausting. We haven't even finished unpacking but we are HERE!

Using Uber in Johannesburg

Why I mostly hate Uber and the (very easy) hack a driver taught me

uber, uber in south africa, uber jhb, using uber in johannesburg, does uber work in soweto, does uber go to soweto, uber africa, uber discount code, how to use uber, how much does uber cost in south africa,

I don't have a car. Not only that, but I also don't drive. These two things can be very disadvantageous when you are looking for work (as I learned from my 15 months of unemployment between 2014 and 2015) or you are a person trying to have a life filled with moments of going places. The Johannesburg geography and our poor public transport systems mean that night life can be hella exclusive

Bae Caught me Slippin'

how to style a slip dress, plus size styling advice, plus size dress, rihanna inspired plus siz,

I walk past a lot of "ngoja" shops on my way to my taxi each morning. Most of the times, unless I'm very preoccupied /overtly anxious, I think about how easy it is to dress like yourself, "be stylish" and dress like a thot when you're thin. Sometimes I tweet my feelings on the matter. My envy feelings have been on a lot of items, but none like the slip dress.
