This weeks look came out to play on a sunny day in my beautiful home town (CPT Baby!). The weather is heating up slowly but surely and I am getting increasingly excited for the summer sizzle. Im wearing a turquoise maxi dress from Dubai & hat from Topshop. My shoes are the usual combat booties from Paris and my super cute neon yellow bag is from Woolworths SA, with some jewels on my arm from various accessory stores. What I really want to talk about though is my new favorite lip color from Inglot.
Busy Busy B
I am currently doing five different tasks at once (working for three companies, studying, blogging) it's so overwhelming. Not being able to eat lunch today, purely because I have been so busy, nearly drove me to tears but I kept pushing and managed to prep for my Expresso Show Interview (on air this morning and probably right now so switch over to SABC 3 and check it out!) and attend my meetings, although I may have missed a class or three. My busy day got me thinking about time management and success. We all strive for it but what does it really mean? Where does success and passion meet and why do I have to work so hard without any tangible result? I am such a little socialite with no time for romance or anything remotely close to it, is it really worth giving up on love and choosing my career? Is this what women go through all the time? I guess ambition is a fire igniting within me so the questions facing women all over are starting to make more sense to me now.
After speaking to my best friend about it "all being worth it" it got me thinking that it probably is worth it and I am much happier being a busy B (B as in Baker... get it?) than a lazy louse. This lead me to a discussion with my supervisor (yes I have a job now I am as shocked as you are) about the importance of mentoring. He told me that he wished he had known how important it is to have a mentor in your life to teach you about success and how to get there. In selecting my future mentor, I am looking for a strong, successful and ambitious African woman who can guide me through my own puzzling reality and lead me to the water so I can drink. Maybe after some guidance I'll have some time to hunt down the ever elusive prince charming.
These are my ramblings for today
