Happy Tears y’all, happy tears!!!
34 years old – whaaaaaaaaat?!?!? Didn’t I just turn 30 a minute ago!?!?!
I must admit though, I love getting older – no really – I do!!! When I think of the shy, scared, ashamed-of-some-extra-weight-girl I was back then compared to who I am now – wow!!!! Growth!
Look, I’m not saying I’m on some Kanye West confidence level right now (ha ha) but I’m a hellavu lot more comfortable being me and that makes my heart happy!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!
Stay Sassy now xxx
Congratulations to my niece Kirsten & her now husband, Shannon, who tied the knot this past weekend!
What a memorable celebration – in fact, I’m still recovering, dancing all night left me rather sore and stiff (yes, I need to start working out, I know this!).
Everything was absolutely perfect, the venue, the décor, the food was amazing, the wedding entourage looked absolutely stunning, not to mention the blushing bride- wow – just perfect!
Thank you Kirsten & Shannon, for allowing us to celebrate this day with you.
I wish you a beautiful life together!
Thank you to Stacey @ MissBoss Couture for designing my beautiful dress.
I’d like to introduce you to an upcoming fashion designer who’ll be opening her store this weekend. So please pop in!!!
Notice I said “blasting” because honestly – I’m just tired of winter! Only a couple more days for Spring though! Yay!
It’s been quite warm recently, although there’s still a slight chill in the air with winter on its way out, especially in the early mornings but today I threw caution to the wind.
I thought I’d probably be a little cold in sandals and an off shoulder dress but the rebel in me just couldn’t!!! Luckily it turned out to be a rather fine day so no blue toes over here – ha ha!
How cute is this dress though?!?! Another one of Fablane Online’s gems. You can check out her merchandise here.

So…I chose the wrong day to wear a dress – it’s windy out here!!!
Also, please excuse the creases – I’ve been sitting at my desk waiting for an opportunity to take my pics…
Moving along swiftly…Hey, did I mention I’m wearing a belt around my neck – ha ha! Yes, it’s supposed to be on the dress but I kinda liked it more around my neck…feeling all daring LOL!
But on serious note – I like to experiment with accessories , a simple belt could be worn in many different ways, head, arm, neck, just play around and see what works best!

Hey Gorgeous Peeps!
Firstly, let me say that South-African weather is totally bipolar. Yesterday was extremely cold and wet and today, albeit a little windy, the sun’s shining and the weather’s fine – as if yesterday never happened at all!
I might have been more than a little excited when the weather turned cold and rainy yesterday, just so I could pull out this sleeveless Melton coat I purchased from Fablane Online – ha ha!
Thank you Michelle at Fablane Online – your service and the quality of your goods are superb – totally worth every cent!
Ladies, head on over to her Instagram profile here and check out all the trendy items she stocks!

Quote of the Day:
Wow!!!! All About That Bass turns 1 – that’s right – 1 year ago I hit the publish button on my very 1st post. I had no idea what to expect as I set off on this blogging adventure, all I knew was that I had a deep desire to reach out to those who thought that you had to look a certain way to look or feel beautiful.
It wasn’t (and still isn’t) about the likes or comments or the number of followers – NO – it’s never about something as superficial as that – this blog was birthed from a desire to uplift and inspire women just like me – who often measure their worth by the number on the scale.
Looking back on the past year – I have to admit – this blog has forced me to grow in ways I never imagined. It has been such an amazing journey of learning, sharing, friendship and most of all gratitude!
Every e- mail subscriber, Facebook “like”, share and comment!
Everyone who follows me on Instagram and Pinterest!
All of the likes, pins and comments on the posts I’ve shared!
The sweet bloggers who include me in their blogroll!
A huge and heart-warming THANK YOU!
To celebrate, I will be giving away these 3 Revlon products to 1 lucky reader, all you have to do to enter is comment on this post and tell me what you love most about this blog!
(Please note – only people in S.A)
Thank you for reading & remember to stay sassy
