Life | Summer of 2015 Snapshots

Summer incites a number of mixed emotions within me. On one hand, the weather is perfect for a dip in the ocean. On the other, you have to brave the heat and wipe your forehead multiple times to even reach the ocean. So with the sweltering season currently upon us; I'm making it a point to wander out only when push comes to shove and on other days, my mind does the wandering for me and takes me away to chilled cocktails, beach holidays and basically anything that takes my mind of the heat.
Not doubt it's a tough task but hey, I'm not complaining.

Summer picnic with a bouquet of african daisy flowers, a red velvet layered cake jar, Rayban sunglasses and Studio Pinwheel beige pebbled duffel handbag
Summer picnics with vibrant flowers, layered cake jars & my fantastic new Studio Pinwheel bag to carry it all in. The best part was being able to customize every aspect of the bags creation from inner lining to strap hardware to create a handbag for my needs, just the way I like it. Do check Studio Pinwheel out on Twitter , Instagram & Facebook to get your dream bag!
