Snap Shot - Raga Muffin

Ragas Baby, before the rain...






Even though we left quite early, we stayed as long as we could to see Ice Cube. Ice Cube was a huge draw card for the patrons and as soon as I heard most of his greatest hits, we were making a B-line out. Beside Ice Cube, UB40 was another act I was excited to see, but the damp, cold and hungry state we were in, we had to thrown in the towel before the last act.

 It would have been one hundred times better if the weather wasn't so shit, unfortunately in my old age I know when I've had enough but I gotta give props to those who's toughed it out.
Those peeps are true Raga Muffins.

One Love, Rastafar.

Stripe Shirt, Jeans and Coral Lips

 Tried to do some Xmas shopping but found my self wanting to escape the mall and just hang outside in the sweet sweet sun. Its summer time yawl!
Hopefully this weather repeats its self next weekend for Raggamuffin and I'll sort the Xmas gifts later. I mean 2 weeks is plenty of time to think, browse, make, buy and wrap thoughtful gifts for loved ones, right?
Shit, maybe not!?!

Birthday Soul Fest


'If you don't celebrate yourself on your own birthday, how can you expect that from others?'
This quote isn't word for word (when I heard it many months ago it was put much more eloquently), but the message really resonated with me. Beyond the birthday high, its all about respecting and loving yourself first. In valuing who you are, reflects the standard for those in your life to know how they should treat you.
I am blessed that in my life, although not picture perfect, I am surrounded by people who make life's daily grime a little less grimy. The best experiences I've ever had, have been with my sister and best friends simply catching up and laughing. Sitting on the side of a road, at the park, at the beach, at a bus stop, at the mc dees, local take outs, in a car, on a hill, at the mall or at home, just chilling and laughing at full blast at our own experiences of life.   

My birthday was last week but, I delayed my celebration for the experience of Soul Fest. A gift to myself but also an experience to share with my lil sis Anne, who had never been to a real concert before.
Soul Fest debut to New Zealand last night, a music festival celebrating Neo-Soul, RnB and Hip Hop (fingers crossed it becomes an annual event). 

Soo many international acts, the ticket price we paid -although general- we got more than our moneys worth (but dont tell the promoters that!). It was a great line up and every one who sung, could sing live. Voices as smooth as silk and as powerful as a lions roar, the vocal talent was undeniable.

Not to forget that this is a fat-fashion blog, below is what I wore...
