* This post is not in anyway meant to badger or lay blame onto anyone, it is just a true reflection of my feelings and a response to the many confused DMs and messages on social media. For as long as I can remember, my life has been an example of a perfect relationship, family, life and career. I would constantly be complimented on how great it was that I was able to stay in a committed relationship for so long and that I seem to have everything under control.
When I was approached by dove to share my hair story, I was quite skeptical. I never actually thought of myself as a hair influencer, the perfect candidate for this type of campaign could have been someone with healthy thick non bleached hair but yet they asked me. I slowly realized that the perfect hair influencer doesn’t exist and we all have our own insecurities about our hair and the way we wear it. My hair has always been a way for me to express myself, I’ve never worn my
As a child growing up in the 90’s and early 2000’s, I was into low rise jeans and bell bottoms that I thought were super cool and flattering to my body shape. Obviously as a know it all tween, I was completely opposed to my mom’s wardrobe, which consisted of 501 Levis jeans “or Mom Jeans” And cute block heels with lots of printed shirts. 15 somewhat years later, I find myself looking like a modern version of my mom, with a wardrobe that is of high resemblance to hers.
So if you follow me on social media you would know that about a week ago I was lucky enough to be wined and dined at one of Jozis best Restaurant’s by the amazing Salvatore Ferragamo Team, for their new fragrance launch. Not only was I spoilt with an amazing food and scent pairing experience, but I was also gifted with one of their new fragrances. I’m a perfume girl, I guess you could say a perfume connoisseur, just jokes, we can just say it’s my guilty pleasure. So when
Ten things that I learnt this week. Not everyone finds me likable and my personality may not be everyones cup of rooibos, but I am truly okay with that. People are shallow, Red lips and my blue hair are the perfect combo. “My succes is not predicated by my zip code ” Gary Vaynerchuk The smalls are what count. I cannot live without cake, my new diet forces me to cut it out just for a few weeks, but I feel myself dying inside #letthemeatcake Short hair is so much

When we look at different pants silhouettes sometimes they can be quite intimidating, I for one never wore palazzo pants. I didn’t think they could look good on me without making me look short. But, me being me, I was adamant that I was going to find a pair that looked good. I stumbled upon this pair a few months ago in Legit, I wanted to try out the silhouette, but I knew that was only going to make this purchase if it looked good on my body type. To
So even though for most of us January is our most broke month of the year ,it doesn’t have to be the least stylish month of the year. For me restyling clothes in my closet is the equivalent to buying a new item of clothing. You still feel good about your new look but you don’t feel as bad about spending money after a lavish festive season. With this look in particular I kind of splurged on this of the shoulder shirt, but my splurge was not without reason. Before
Is it just me or does this time of the year make you want to just shirk your responsibilities and eat each meal of the day in a different restaurant. Okay so maybe I’m a bit eccentric when it comes to good food, I mean who doesn’t want to have their cake and eat it. The reason I’m telling you this is because todays shoot was shot at one of my favorite hangouts in Joburg, because I wanted to some up my foodie mood for this summer. Now I am
I have been struggling with a problem lately, which is mostly the reason for my absence in the blogging realm. For a while now I seem to have complete disregard for the importance that this blog plays in my life. The Gilded hanger has taken a back seat to my real life events and also my life’s priorities. With me not being able to manage my life and all its challenges has seen The Gilded Hanger into a downward spiral. A career in fashion and and as a blogger is
