Sometimes you just want to get in the car and drive, drive to someplace that’s just beautiful.

That’s how I felt not so long ago, after realising how I got so caught up in work, gym, blogging, staying in touch with friends and life in general. So I just got in the car and drove.

I’m one that really enjoys a beautiful view, and it’s usually something I get to enjoy as a reward at the end of a hike. You know, there’s nothing like reaching the peak of a summit, be it Lion’s Head or Table Mountain, and being met by stunning views of the city or ocean, but this time is different.

This time I took the easy way up, this time I drove right up to one of the most popular viewing points in the city, Signal Hill, and though it didn’t take hard work to get there (traffic aside lol), I still enjoy it, eachieving and every time. Marvelling at the beauty of this amazing City that’s become my home and appreciating it for all that it is, good and bad, it’s just what I needed.



It won’t always be this easy, my own from here on is to try find the silver lining in everything, enjoy where I’m at and continue to aim to be bold and do something different.

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!

    I am absolutely in awe of that view as well! So very therapeutic and just puts things (whatever it is i’m dealing with at the time)into perspective for me! With or without champagne lol. So happy to be following you and getting to know more about your style and what captivates and inspires you! Keep shining:)
