MARKET VIBES

HI SMEARS!!!


TOLD you I would be back soon! let me ask you something. do you know how it feels when you get the impression that the universe has heard your cries about your dire need of a break? the weight has been lifted and you can suddenly just relax and be in your element. its the kind of feeling you get after you have forgiven someone or after you choose to accept the way things are. its the same feeling you get when you walk into a store and the last pair of shoes is the perfect fit and then getting to the counter and finding out that they are on sale.

THE little things in life are worth so much more than all the things we hope for. and thats what today was about. relishing the little things. I went to the craft market at Grandpalm today with blogger friend Tumelo from Candid Fashion Lover. had a chilled day. lots of lively chatter and magnitudes of colour. I had no money to splurge, but I feel like I left with a million bags solely because my mission was accomplished.

I wore this vintage polka dot button down dress for the first time ever. originally I bought it for the dots, but had no idea what to do with it once I had it. then it was decided that I would wear it as a coat in the winter months of next year. I got bullied into wearing it today. got some odd looks and I occassionally felt odd myself, but idc, I love it.









THERE was something for everyone, from kids, jewellery collectors and avid tribalists like me. here are some of my favourite finds.






 IM KICKING myself for not getting this ladies contacts! -_- hers was just wow!





THE watch stall!



HOME made sweet treats from Nancy and her Mum. they have such an interesting background and equally interesting characters.

AND towards the end, the kids were serenaded with the sweet melodies of Christmas carols.


 
AS dusk set the pool was lit with candles, i would've loved to see what they looked like at night.



LAST MINUTE RANDOMNESS




THE SPRINKLERS CAME ON MID PHOTO SHOOT LOL!

AND these little guys made a special appearence just before we left!




I don't know if you can tell, but it was a day well spent. its great to just take time out with a friend(s) and take a random trip somewhere and have fun with it.




Thank you for all the mentions, emails, tweets,likes. I'm deeply humbled. till next time...


BYE SMEARS!!!
