The truth is that I have been devoided of my creativity to make digital content and write. I somehow have lost the spark that I had all these years. Things took a turn for the worst just after the Fashion Industry Insiders event I curated in September. Up until a few days ago, I felt stuck as everything I did couldn’t get me out of that zone.
There are many reasons to look forward to the weekend. In most cases, people just want to rest after the working week. It sometimes feels like we are stuck in a perpetual cycle were we become ecstatic on a Friday and then somehow get into a downward spiral of emotions the minute its Sunday evening. For your regular nine-to-fivers, the weekend is the best thing that was ever invented. As a full-time content creator and blogger, there is really no true concept of a weekend.

To help push back day zero, local authorities have encouraged citizens to use no more than 50 liters a day per person. To think that one of my favorite cities in the world will go without water come Day Zero was enough reason to inspire this shoot.
I stand in solidarity with the people of Cape Town during this difficult period.
By now, everyone should have heard about Black Panther the movie. The most eagerly awaited movie in years. In fact, this post is super late. I actually prepared it over two weeks ago and for reasons I would rather not get into, I am only now sharing it.
