A new year seems to be dawning upon us yet again, creating a excitement for what lies beyond January 1st 2015. for me and most of you, the new year brings new challenges, new beginnings and new doors waiting to be opened. The prospect of something new has always enticed my imagination yet made my stomach sink at the thought of it really being part of my life, I guess the fear of the unknown is something we all battle with. I know that it is okay to be scared,


Its no secret that the festive season is the best time of the year. Whether you celebrate or not, there is just something about Christmas time. Because I live in the beautiful southern most part of Africa, our Christmas’s are always warm and sunny, which means we don’t get to build snowmen during Christmas, we get to wear shorts , party and embrace every bit of summer time. My look today is really centralized around this netted skirt which I purchased at 32 Clothing, a new budget friendly off-price retailer.


And its finally December, can you actually believe that 2014 is almost at its end. 2014 has been kind of a whirlwind blur for me and for once I don’t really know what to expect in the new year. I know that with a new year comes new challenges and maybe my blur year was what I needed in order to gain some clarity in the new year . I have become a stronger person this year, my priorities are different to what they were a year and a half

An Inner City Force

With this being the last post in “The City Girl Diaries” series for a while, my team and I wanted to showcase one of our favourite spots in Johannesburg city that would be perfect for you to visit in the upcoming festive season… Braamfontien. This series has shown only a few of our cities treasures, there are many many others which I personally have not tried yet. For now though the previous post and this one show the places I have explored and loved. I guess to find out about

Twenty Three

You don’t need to know me well to know that I love birthdays. Everything about a birthday just makes me smile, so naturally when its time for my birthday I’m extra happy and goofy. Waking up this morning was oh so surreal , aging is something you cannot escape and truthfully I think its beautiful to see your transformation over the years , I’m 23 today and I cannot believe how much has changed,  high school and teenage hood has been left so far behind me yet I feel as though it

Vintage in the City

Johannesburg city is just one of those cities that you either love or hate. Being a city girl all my life I have all the love in the world for this place. The city offers endless opportunity, adventure and pure concrete beauty. The location of this post is tucked away just on the outskirts of the city. Like many of the new real estate efforts in the city, 44 on Stanley is a true South African inspired vintage spot, oozing with good food and amazing antiques. I loved shooting here

New Horizons

Lately my blog has been victim to a great deal of neglect, as a blogger I’m supposed to be consistent and for the past few months, consistency wasn’t something high up on my to do list. I know as readers you are in  need of new content on a regular basis, I cant have you loosing interest in something you love to read on account of my neglect. Which brings me to the good news… The Gilded Hanger has teamed up with a company called Psynosure Photography in order to

River Island is officially here Stemming from their British roots, River Island opened doors for the first time in SA this past Friday at the newly renovated Rosebank Mall. It’s refreshing international style is a great compliment to the new mall and as River Island is a market leader in the UK and worldwide the flagship store couldn’t have been launched in a better location. The UK is always about 5 steps ahead of the trend train so, having River Island out in our backyard is great for those of


  What is it about boots that seem to be so daunting to us. Maybe its the fact that you never know which style will work best, so you end up buying a 100 pairs that sit in you closet while you only use one out of them all for the entire winter. Boots are like any other pair of shoes there are different types, some which can be worn only in the winter seasons and others which can be worn all year round. So let me break it down

Frozen Comfort

If you’re not a winter person, like me, you would know all to well the effects of the cold on you and your body. During the colder months my social life consists of mainly hibernation in front of the tele or snuggling up with a large cup of Honey Rooibos and a good read so that I don’t have to face the outdoors. Bad news though, we have no choice but to face the cold and what better way to do it than to embrace it. I know it’s not
