Turning 24.

Turning 24.

I turned 24 two weeks ago! For the first time in a while, I wasn’t overcome with a creeping, lingering sense of dread about getting older. I’ve got neutral feelings about my age, about my life thus far, and that feels great. It feels great not to be so hyper-focused on a number. I look forward to arriving at a place in my life where I’m content and at peace with everything.

Cape St Francis is a lovely little place I’d describe as the more rugged version of St Francis Bay. A quick Google search will tell you that it’s a seaside village famous for its waves.

Vulnerability & Visual Storytelling: A Conversation with Nicole Honeywill.

I remember first discovering Nicole Honeywill’s page on Instagram and being completely floored by how beautiful, and how well curated her page was. I was even more surprised when I found out that she wasn’t even an influencer from somewhere far away like the UK or the USA, but a South African girl living right here in the Eastern Cape.  Continue reading “Vulnerability & Visual Storytelling: A Conversation with Nicole Honeywill.”
