To anyone who may have followed this blog (unlikely) or visited it every now and then, I have started a new, more art orientated blog (this is because I am now a first year Graphic Design student at Stellenbosch University) which you can visit here if that kind of thing interests you. I have high hopes for this new blog since I am more passionate about art that I was about stuff I posted on here. There might even be a bit of music thrown in on this new blog every now and then, cause anyone who knows me will know that I really, really love music.....really. The point of this new blog, which is very simply called "P I P" (art by pip), is really just to give my art an audience of sorts so that I can get my name out there. I would really appreciate it if you checked it out - in fact, I would love you forever.

And so, as weird as this is....this is my last post on Kaleidoscope Eyes.
Bye world.

I think I want to change the look of this blog. And make it a bit more artsy. But I have to remember how to make up my own header first. And finish finals.

NYFW Favourites (Part 1).

Since I haven't posted anything in ages (matric has been a little crazy in terms of work and applying for varsities and stuff), this is a quick (or maybe not so quick) update on my main source of procrastination during mocks: New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. Starting off with NY as part 1.

Something to think about.

Please be warned that this is a rant. I have never ranted on here about anything before, but I think this is quite relevant. However, if you are not in the mood for reading someone's angry blogpost, leave now. Thank you kindly.

It's nothing unusual that school girls borrow clothes and other items from each other all the time; no one really bats an eyelid at that fact any more. Why shouldn't we? Borrowing saves us from having to buy a new dress every time we go to a dance, or new shoes every time we go to someone's birthday tea (especially on our limited budgets).
It has recently come to my attention though, that whenever one girl brings a bag of clothes or shoes to school to give to another, a Pick 'n Pay or Woolworths bag won't suffice; the goods have to come in a Country Road, La Senza or Zara shopping bag (etc, etc). And I have picked this up on multiple occasions; it is a pattern. It's as though friends try to subconsciously outdo or one-up each other every time they bring a new shopping bag of an even more prolific brand to school.
Why? Why is that necessary? I quite honestly could not care less about how fancy you think you are with your little bag. I'll compliment you on your clothes if I like them, but there is not a chance in hell that you bringing your fancy shopping bag to school will make me think more of you, make me envy you, or even make me think about complimenting you on your superior taste in brands. Clothes are clothes. If they're nice, they just are and it doesn't matter WHERE they come from...cause if there's one thing I hate, it has to be snobs.
There we go. You don't have to agree with me, just something to think about.

On a lighter note, here's some good old King Charles to hopefully put a smile on some faces in this awful exam-time weather.
