I just like this picture 🙂
Found it on weheartit.com

I really love candy. I must have some form chocolate everyday. And after every meal (breakfast included) I have to fight the urge to get pudding. Let’s hope this love affair doesn’t end in diabetes.

Enjoy your lunch hour South Africa!


I’ve improved a bit since my first try, I like this picture a lot. It reminds me of Waking Life. I took it about 4 years ago… or more, I can’t remember. In any case, the quality was horrible, but I liked the idea. I’m so glad I kept it, the edited version turned out better than I ever expected.


For the past month I’ve interned at Hello World Agency in the Brand Strategy department. It’s been quite the experience and I’ve learned a lot.

I drew the above picture of the team at the Hello Purpose meeting where they discussed the company’s strategy.


I remember when I was a very little girl, our house caught on fire.
I’ll never forget the look on my father’s face as he gathered me up
in his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement.
I stood there shivering in my pajamas and watched the whole world go up in flames.
And when it was all over I said to myself, “Is that all there is to a fire?”

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

And when I was 12 years old, my father took me to the circus, the greatest show on earth.
There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads.
And as I sat there watching the marvelous spectacle
I had the feeling that something was missing.
I don’t know what, but when it was over,
I said to myself, “Is that all there is to a circus?”

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

Then I fell in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world.
We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes.
We were so very much in love.
Then one day, he went away. And I thought I’d die — but I didn’t.
And when I didn’t I said to myself, “Is that all there is to love?”

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing

I know what you must be saying to yourselves.
If that’s the way she feels about it why doesn’t she just end it all?
Oh, no. Not me. I’m in no hurry for that final disappointment.
For I know just as well as I’m standing here talking to you,
when that final moment comes and I’m breathing my lst breath, I’ll be saying to myself,

Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

I took this photo at Capitol Theatre, a grand condemned cinema in Pretoria city. It’s one of my very favorite places and very few people know of it. This small space is the old projection room, there is still film lying on the floor and all the old switches, power boxes and meters remain. I especially enjoy the peeling paint… There are rumours of a dressing room that still has costumes, but I haven’t found it yet. I’m not superstitious but the place is certainly spooky, in that very seductive kind of way.

It’s also the very first picture I edited in Photoshop. I’ve moved on from CorelDraw and Photopaint to Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Although I must admit I thought after all the hype I’d enjoy Adobe more, or that it would be easier… but honestly I think it’s over-complicated and I definitely prefer Corel. But maybe I still have a lot to learn, we’ll see how it progresses. I have to hand in my Adobe exam project next month, it’s my very last exam for this year. Yay for me!


Last night I was whisked away to my very own surprise Alice Tea Party where I feasted for hours, conversed with the best and laughed like mad. I took this photo with a heavy heart when we started clearing up this morning. I’m going to sincerely miss that space.

I am too pooped to go into details at the moment but I just had to say big love to all my friends and loved ones who contributed to the weird wonderland that took my breath away last night. Most of all, to my boyfriend and his family, for their hours of work in preparation, courage, creativity and soul, I will never forget my 24th birthday, it has been an adventure I could not have dreamed up myself! Thank you for everything! Then to those band of brothers, the three De Kock’s, you guys come from very special stock, thank you for being who you are and sharing that extraordinary-ness with the world!

I will post a full photo gallery very soon, but for now it’s off to bed so this Alice can prepare for another Monday. Good night 23, you gave me OppiKoppi, 2 jobs, night classes, an internship, an electro conversion, Lark, my good friends The B(l)and, my first dubstep event, and the Gautrain. I am very grateful.


A photo I took, it makes quite a pretty background. Click on image for full size version.
