We change bit by bit, day by day, habit by habit. We are continually undergoing micro evolutions of the self. Each habit is like a suggestion: ‘Hey, maybe this is who I am.’ If you finish a book, then perhaps you are the type of person who likes reading. If you go to the gym, then perhaps you are the type of person who likes to exercise. If you practice playing the guitar, perhaps you are the type of person who likes music. If you dress up, then perhaps you are the type of person who loves fashion. Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity. 👣

Weddings that make our hearts pitter-patter and leave an indelible mark by their sheer top notch beauty are always our favourites! We are, quite frankly, downright obsessed.🙈 Oh wait….A little PSA for anyone out there planning a small wedding...a small wedding doesn't have to mean small details! In fact, we think just the opposite - the smaller the wedding, the bigger the details. This wedding is just too eye-candy and brimming with champagne moments from the prep time in the morning right up to the end. Takunda & Nyasha stylishly tied the knot in front of their family and friends against a picturesque backdrop. Here is to the sneak peek…….

I never wished for big surprises, long love letters and dancing in the rain. I never wished for midnight fun, Saturday get-aways and romantic dates. I never wished for grand days, too-good-to-be-true encounters, and perfect moments.
I just wish for my little gestures to be appreciated. I just wish for my stories to be heard. I just wish that someone out there is happy with everything that I am, with what I can give, and with who I am becoming.

It’s okay to grow, to change, to evolve. To be a different version of who you were a year ago or even a day ago. To let relationships that no longer serve you fade away so that new ones can blossom and take shape. To immerse yourself in different, more life-giving environments. To leave old ambitions at the door in order to pursue what your soul is currently calling you towards.

Tear down the box that you have put yourself in. Discard any thoughts that tell you it’s safer and better to just remain the same. Some parts of life – our career, friendships, hobbies, ways of coping, defence mechanisms – are meant to simply serve as a chapter, not the whole story. And that is okay. That is beautiful. That is a gift.

Release. Shift. And welcome in what’s speaking to your heart at this present chapter of your life.

Have you ever been so mad? An anger that is not directed at anyone specific? A rage so big that it wants to burst out of you?
You feel it deep inside you like a boiling volcano, an all-consuming storm that takes you down, leaving you destroyed. A quake that shakes your body through until you no longer know who you are, and why you feel what you feel. Shortly before the flood, a moment before you collapse, you remember.
To your father who was never there when you needed him, who never loved you for who you are, and who kept evading reality with alcohol.
And realization slaps you in the face like a slap.
You feel that childlike anger on your father. The powerlessness of the little girl to be able to do absolutely nothing. Your birthright to love is playful. And you don't even know why or what you did wrong.
Then comes the sadness. She was hiding behind the rage. And you cry like never in your whole life. The water runs out of your eyes, but also from your heart, and from your soul. You're just a huge burn, an unending pain. And yet it cleanses you. It heals all your feelings. It makes you aware of who you were then and who you are now.
You are now an adult, in charge, and powerful. You don't need your father anymore, even anyone to save you. You have become an amazing woman who loves herself and is loved back. You carry your happiness in your heart, and the world is just waiting for you to give away your love.
You may embrace your anger, your powerlessness, your grief.
You must realize that you are worthy, that you are enough, that no one can take away your love.
You are love

❤️

You don't fall in love.

You discover it.

Then it's built.

Yes, you can meet someone and have that lightning in a bottle feeling (note: That chemistry doesn't always come from a healthy place). You can be swept away by someone's mind, body, passion for life, humor and the way they make you feel. You can see someone walk through the door and lose your words. But love is not about losing words or being swept away. Thats connection, chemistry the strong glue thats produced by two attracted beings. But that is not love!

I'm sorry.

Because you don't fall in love. You fall in lust. You fall in infatuation. You fall in amazing chemistry and connection. You fall in hot s*x. But you don't fall in love.

LOVE IS DISCOVERED

There are many parts to us. We are complicated beings. We don't always make sense. We have feelings. Thoughts. Phases. We are confusing. Unpredictable. Love is discovered and that takes time. They are layers to be peeled. And trust must be formed for someone to truly show themselves and we can all agree that trust is earned and takes time, correct?
You get to know all the parts of someone. The good, the bad, the ugly, the real. Most of us are usually sold out to the highlight reel, the movie trailer, the commercial when everyone's on their best behaviour and mistake it for falling in love. Im writing this because people think that when the fantasy feeling fades, they are no longer in love. The truth is when the fantasy feeling fades, thats just the beginning. You start to see the other sides to them and the relationship. But it doesn't mean its not magical anymore. Magic comes in different forms. You start to discover other things about that person. Some you love. Some will challenge you. Some will downright p**s you off. But its all part of the discovery process. As you peel layers and see more and more sides of someone, and these sides appear as you experience the person in different situations, settings, and spaces, in all different moods, around different people, going through different challenges etc..., you get to really know them. YOU SEE THE WHOLE INSTEAD OF THE MOVIE POSTER.
Now, discovery is ongoing. It never stops. Because people are always changing and growing and evolving.

THEN LOVE IS BUILT

And you build love love by making a daily choice.
Minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day.
There is you.
There is him/her.
And there is what you guys are building together (the relationship)

We must see that love -what is being built is its own living breathing separate piece.
It allows people to not always make it about them. Now there is something greater. Something outside of self. And thats how you make love sustainable and lasting. Two people building something greater than them. Then love goes from a to-me mindset to a through-me mindset and a through-me mindset is always the highest, most power filled state.

Whats my point?

Stop looking at love as something you fall in. As romantic as that sounds, it also sounds like a trap. Instead, see love as a discovery process. You are exploring, not only the other person but yourself. Notice how you feel around someone, especially how you feel about yourself. Notice the differences. The similarities. Notice everything. And discover. Discover. Discover. Its a process that requires you to look inward first. Its not about getting. Its about giving. Its not about you, its about with you.

DISCOVER.

BUILD.

AND LOVE SO HARD.

It was a beautiful Saturday. We were at a cafe, and enjoying our coffee.

Looking intently at me, she asked " What catches your interest when you meet someone for the first time?"

I took a sip of my coffee, and replied "Eyes! Eyes reveal. Eyes speak the unsaid words."

She smiled and whispered "What do my eyes reveal? What do they tell you in unsaid words?”

How to Find the Perfect Wedding-Day Shoe.

Decisions, decisions, decisions! Planning a wedding is all about them and on the long list of bridal accessories to shop for to complete your wedding day ensemble, determining the best type of bridal shoe to go with your gorgeous gown—and finding the perfect pair—is a top priority. For some brides, it's the ultimate fashion quest—almost perhaps even rivaling that of the search for the dress—while for other brides, scoring a solid wedding shoe is as simple as considering comfort (which is key no matter how much you value style).

Whatever your priorities might be, at the end of the day, your wedding day shoes have a major role to fulfill. You have to like them, yes, but you also have to want to wear them—often for long periods of time over a solid, 8-plus hour day (think about that for a moment). So how do you figure out what type of bridal shoe is best for you?

Find your dress first.

Even if you’ve stumbled upon the wedding shoes of your dreams, hold off from purchasing them if you haven't yet found the wedding dress to match. (Although, if you really love them, you could buy them “just in case.”) You want your bridal footwear to complement your dress in every aspect—style, color, down to every last detail and embellishment—and the length of your dress matters, too. If you're going with a shorter dress, your shoes can be a major statement accessory, adding color, glitz, glam, whimsy, romance—or simply a dose of modern elegance—to your ensemble. Whereas, if your dress is a full-length gown, they're not going to be nearly as visible.

Prioritize comfort.

Most brides always focus on style, but if your feet are in so much pain that you need to take your shoes off in order to enjoy yourself... well, what's the point of having them? Your first consideration should be heel height: The higher the heel, the more pressure on the ball of your foot. A low-to-mid-height heel and even a chunkier heel will keep you standing and dancing comfortably that much longer, and there are plenty of gorgeous bridal flats out there, too. The bottom line: On a day and night when you’ll likely be on your feet twice as long as you normally would be—if not three or four times—you need comfortable shoes.

Consider your venue

Just as you check the weather to make sure you’re wearing the appropriate footwear before venturing outside each day, brides should not forget to consider their venue when selecting their shoes especially if they are having an outdoor ceremony, on a grass lawn. Your wedding venue will influence how much heel you should wear. Trying to look graceful walking through grass lawn after it has rained is much more difficult in heels than strolling down an aisle in a church.

Pick your colour.

Like every other style decision you make for your big day, what colour of shoes you'll ultimately wear will depend on what kind of bride you are. Classic and traditional brides will likely be drawn to clean white, champagne, ivory, and n**e tones, but if a little footwear flair intrigues you, don't be afraid go outside the box in the colour department. You also have to pick a colour which will complement the wedding theme colours and that of your dress.

Don't wait until the last minute.

While it’s best to find your dress before deciding on your bridal shoe, you should be shopping for them and honing in on a few key styles around the same time—not just because you need to figure out how to match your shoes to your dress, but because you will need to purchase them in advance of your dress fittings and alterations. Your dressmaker or tailor needs the exact height of your wedding shoes [before they can get started]. That way they can adjust the length of your dress based on your wedding shoe height for the perfectly polished look!
