I woke up to the news of adored actor Robin Williams’ passing away this morning and I had to wear something bright to pick up my mood. As a young child I loved him as the genie in Disney’s Aladdin. I had the movie on video (yes, video haha) and every time someone was mean to me at school I would come home and watch it and genie’s hilarious dialogue and shenanigans would lift my spirits right up. As I grew older I began to appreciate him more as an actor. I loved Mrs Doubtfire! My Mom introduced me to Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society when I was older and more recently I really appreciated his work in The Crazy Ones.

It’s so upsetting to think that someone that added so much laughter and happiness to so many lives could have been so depressed. Depression is an illness not a weakness and I hope that we can all learn from this. Even the strongest, funniest person can be battling the ugliest demons. Be kind and peaceful and do all things with a pure heart.

I love this sweater from the lot. It’s gigantic and warm and also very 90s chic. These Lucky Brand jeans literally feel like pyjamas. If you haven’t tried on a pair you really have been missing out. I added these crazy, quirky sunnies that my Dad bought me years ago when we went to visit Galleria mall which just opened. He probably thought I was nuts or that I wanted them as a joke but I have worn and loved them everywhere from Cape Town to Mauritius to Dubai! Some Girl About Town lipstick and a pair of yellow heels finished off the look. The yellow accents reminded me of buttered popcorn. Perhaps I’ll make some now 😉

Until next time

“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world” – Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society)
