The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.

It's that time of the year again, Colour Conference 2014 Cape Town time… I guess some explanation is needed, well here it goes. The Colour Conference is an annual woman's conference that is hosted by the incredible Bobbie Houston and she is always accompanied by wonderful speakers and this year it was holy Wagner and Lisa Bevere who spoke powerful life changing messages that just give you that push you need to pursue your God given purpose.

I am still on the Colour Conference high and I was soo super excited for the conference that I decided I would make myself two dresses that I could wear to both nights of the event but unfortunately I was only able to make one dress because I broke my sewing needle and shockingly I didn't have a spare soo I had to hand stitch the zip and the lace detail but I think it came out pretty awesome, what do you think? I wore the dress with my black jacket and black stocking and my black leather boots…. I was going for that tough but tender look lol hopefully I pulled it off.

Day 2 of the conference to me was all about comfort because we were literally there all day from 9am till 9pm soo I had to whip out my trusted 'ol vans sneakers and paired them with a my super skinny pants and my neon green top which I love and a denim jacket with a spikey necklace just to add some detail.

One of the sub themes within the conference was "Be the Change" which just so happens to be one of my favourite quotes ever from the great Mahatma Gandhi and even though I agree with it completely I always feel like how much change can one person really do to change the WORLD but I learnt at the conference that when one person decides to join a movement of people, they can impact lives and change generations and the world needs more people to step up to the plate.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is thing that ever has" – Margaret Mead.

At the conference they showed us a video of young girls who are being trafficked all over the world, and I know this is really heavy stuff for a blog but sometimes you need to raise awareness about the stuff that really matters because what these people are doing is NOT RIGHT. We are not objects to be sold, used and then thrown away when they think we have lost our worth. We can never lose our worth, we were all created in the image of the all-mighty, and we have the right to live, to love and to be free. As the free ones we therefore have the responsibility to release the captive and be the loud voices for those who have had their voices taken away.
