"Society says, 'Look out for yourself', but God says, 'Look out for others'"

This is true. So for the 22 years that I have been alive, I have never felt violated or victimised in South Africa. But for the first time, I understood what it means when someone violates your space or puts you in a position that you never signed up for. It been a tough two weeks and for the third time in London, I experienced crime but last week was the most heart-breaking crime I've experienced. Someone broke into our place in London and stole many personal things! I know - you never think that these things will ever happen to you. Everyone likes to say how dangerous our country is but my answer is, no matter where you are in the world, it's possible to experience crime, right? 

The day I saw the quote above, I thought that no matter what you go through God will always have your back. All your faith, strength and hope should be in The One who created you. This is the only way that I have got myself through the weeks, through God and I thank Him for that.

So, I'm going to keep this short and sweet and say... that with every bad thing that happens in your life, do a ton of good. You can overcome your fear, all by surrounding yourself within a positive environment. No one should EVER say, 'I don't need anyone in this world'. That's not true, you will always need someone when you least expect it, even if it's someone you barely know. Don't take people for granted! All it takes, is appreciation and love because you have no idea what that person is going through. I believe to survive in this world we need to help other's. So I leave you with this... we were all created for a specific reason and purpose, never underestimate how much someone can do for you. 

#STYLE TIP:  Look casual-chic. Wear simple and comfortable garments with some bold statement heels and accessory. Fur is always a great Fall/Winter buy.

Casual-chic is a great dress code for work (on a Friday) or any sort of meeting or day out for lunch. This look is super comfortable yet the coat, heels and fur adds just enough of a bold feminine statement. I think its important to feel warm in Fall, so a neutral coat is always best buy.
