Woodstock Graffiti Walk

On Sunday I tagged along with the cool kids of UCT as well as random igers to adventure through the awesomeness of Woodstock world. Well it is not that awesome, these people sure live in bad conditions and it is not comfortable to watch. The Graffiti is pretty spectular and I snapped a few shots. I kind of ran away from the group and ended up heading home, I cannot help it if I got tried and was no mood to stand around waiting. 

There was even a competition running with that of New Balance but I was not very interested. I was more intrigued by actually being in Woodstock and not getting rob. The other thing that was intriguing was the fact Woodstock was absolutely pack with people on a Sunday. I found out there was a food expo happening and another unhalaal event happening close by.

All in all the walk was fun and it was nice getting back into the photography buzz.

Tuesday 10's | 10 Music Videos I am obsessed with

I find myself being quite intrigued by the music videos on Youtube. I picked a few of my favourite and sure going to share it with these random Aliens.

be amazed by my randomness

in no particular order...

Wale ft Usher Matrimony

The lyrics are quite deep and made me wonder why people like to actually get married.

Skrillex and Diplo - "Where Are Ü Now" with Justin Bieber

This song is just addictive and I have been listening to it since it came out. Weird part is I am not even sick of it yet.

Pia Mia - Do It Again ft. Chris Brown, Tyga

There is something about this song that I cannot get out of my head. What is so addictive about this song? help me understand Aliens.

Jidenna - Classic Man (Remix) ft. Kendrick Lamar

This song just makes you move like a classic man. I love the style of clothing in the video and the car is to gorgeous for my liking.

Prince Royce - Back It Up (Official Video) ft. Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull

Just a funky song to shake to and enjoy the moment.

Nicki Minaj - The Night Is Still Young

Not much of her music but this song has something different. Maybe the colours of the music video is intriguing.


Martin Garrix feat. Usher - 'Don't Look Down' (Towel Boy)

This song is fantastic, there is a good moral to the lyrics and makes you realise that society is highly superficial.

Ariana Grande - One Last Time

I am not really a fan of her but this song is quite catchy and I am still not bored of it. 

Hilary Duff - Sparks

Say hello to the new Hilary Duff. She really changed a lot and I am sure loving the new style. The song is so much fun and girly. 

Jhené Aiko - Spotless Mind

I love the beat and the lyrics are on point. Sure shows how quickly people can change and they expect others to change with them as well.

Picture of the Week | The African Grey

I took this image when I did a Modern Islamic Style photo shoot. We were suppose to get an African Grey Parrot but due to our busy lives and looking after two crazy dogs, we just left it. This little guy just wanted to be part of the conversation while we were doing the photo shoot.

Behind the Scenes | Modern Islamic Style

A few weeks ago I had the honour of working with Xana and Ilhaam... These images below are behind the scenes of what happens in the world of a make up artist. It was really fun working with Xana and I sure hope our paths cross again in the future.

Tuesday 10's | 10 ways to get over an argument

Wow when last have I done one of these, hope my boss does not fire me for not doing my part. Sorry Leana. You should check out her blog. This week I decided to create ways of getting over pathetic arguments that tend to get the best of us. In no particular order...
  • walk away fast, do not stop just walk

  • go for a swim, it relaxes the mind and you get your daily exercise in

  • place the earphones in and escape with the music

  • talk to small people, they tend to be the best kind of doctors
  • watch the sunset or sunrise (depending on the time of the argument), it keeps the heart calm
  • speak to someone that will understand your problems or wait let them talk nonsense instead
  • drink a cup of tea
  • dance like a crazy person in public or in your room
  • paint a pretty picture
  • do a bit of people watching in the shopping mall, you find the best kind of people there.
