Thursday Thunder: Morgan Reid

Morgan Reid interview

We met a couple of years ago in New York and had the best time. She let me sleep in her bed -I mean, that’s love… And showed me around Brooklyn and other cool parts of New York. I even did a shoot on her rooftop (hello dream!). Later on she visited me in Amsterdam and I returned the favor of taking her around my city. Morgan Reid is a special kinda person. She’s a model, but to me she’s a free spirited artist. Her drawings and paintings are so dope. She lives big and bold. Like selling all your stuff and buying a plane ticket to travel through Europe. Morgan Reid, a girl you just have to meet -mic drop. So here you go…

body love self-care

A couple of years ago I finally found my balance body wise. After almost two decades of dieting and emotional binge eating I made healthy choices –and ate chocolate on a regular basis-, worked out two to three times a week, walked around the city every other day… I lost quite some weight and stabilised. Body love one hundred! For about two years I managed to keep my balance without even really trying. And then something changed…

It’s been forever (over a year!) since I posted an outfit on this blog… but better late than never. I’ve shot some looks recently and will continue to do this on a regular basis. I’m not really into just sharing outfits so I’ll always add some fashion tips or a short personal story. In this case it’s a story about my emotional baggage…

Thursday Thunder: Siphokazi Veti

Siphokazi Veti - Unscensored feminist

“It was the happiest day of my life when I realized I was allowed to love my body”

 

Instagram makes me crush a lot. On girls that is. A while ago I bumped into the gorgeous Siphokazi Veti (22) from Johannesburg. She doesn’t just share beautiful pictures but she shares her beautiful mind as well. She is an accounting student and was greatly influenced by arts, that’s why she loves to write. I just had to feature Siphokazi Veti as Thursday Thunder on my blog. Get to know this lovely lady a bit better!
