Hello lovelies! Another week of intense high temperature here in Melbourne. As I'm writing this right now, it's 40 degrees Celsius outside. Seeing the pictures of the snow in New York on instagram doesn't help this boiling situation at all. Anyways, yesterday I caught up with my beautiful friends which I haven't seen for quite a while. Of course, we had heaps to talk about and got up to speed with everyone's lives. What better way to do that than over a nice, delicious dinner at our favourite Thai restaurant. Thai has to be one of my favourite cuisines. Us girls always get a bowl of coconut rice each and the waiter was quite surprise. Carbs?? Pffft!
After a very satisfying dinner, we went to watch the 'Mandela Long Walk to Freedom' movie. We were originally going to watch '12 Years a Slave' but the reviews said that it's a difficult film to sit through and watch people getting tortured... What a legend Mandela was. I learnt a lot from movie about Mandela's life. It was super sad to see how people were treated back in the day of segregation. The movie pretty much showcased Nelson's Mandela extraordinary journey to freedom and becoming President. Sad movie with a happy ending.
Maxi Dress- Cotton on
You really cannot go wrong with a maxi dress. Put one on and you're good to go. I absolutely love this dress. It's so comfortable and flattering to wear. I love the two slits on the sides which provide more movement and give a cheeky peek to the legs. Because of the bold colours and prints of the dress, I kept the jewelry very minimal. I love how well the gold feathers necklace go with the dress, which also matched my sandals. Perfect outfit for a summery day or night.
On that note, I'm going to leave you with a couple of my favourite Mandela's quotes:
"It always seem impossible until its done."
"Do not judge me by my successes, judge my by how many times I fell down and got back up again."
- Nelson Mandela
