My parents-in-law have an amazing garden. Every time we visit Johannesburg, I am always marveling at the beauty of their backyard bliss.
Since this is the first time that I've been back at their home since taking up self-portraiture, I knew that I couldn't pass up the chance to feature my in-laws' beautiful South African garden.
So, on the first day of 2010, I decided to do a Style Studio shoot featuring their garden --- and a couple of my Christmas presents. Plus, my Diana Mini!
Anyway, here's my very first Style Notes of the year here at the Studio:
Hmmm... I think that's it. My only other accessory here is my Mini Diana. Honestly, I don't know what possessed me to model one of my favourite new gadgets. Such a geeky/dorky thing to do, eh? But, I thought it was fun anyway!
Where To: a New Year's Day braai with the family at my sis-in-law's house in Jo'brg
Side Note: Uhm... I know I missed a couple of months' worth of Style Studio installments. Sorry about that. Hopefully, this post makes up for it somehow. And, I look forward to sharing more with you this 2010.
