The Great Escape

Now and then, life can get the better of you and you find yourself caught up in chasing deadlines and get all that you need to do done, that you neglect to take a moment to stop and simply take a breather. That’s pretty much how I feel like things have been for me for a bit and when I realized this, I thought it time to do something about it.

I went out in search of greener pastures, to enjoy some fresh air with a hike; and cause winter equals rainy season for those of us in the Cape, when those clouds clear up, it’s a chance to break out lol.

There’s nothing like hiking up a new route to get the blood flowing, one of my favourite ways to keep active and even better way to explore my surroundings. This time I went on a trail on the well-known Signal Hill with a friend and had to make sure I was well-dressed and covered up for this one with it being chilly out, but that didn’t stop us from having lots of laughs and enjoying the wonderful view of the sun setting on the other side of the ocean.

It made for a nice and relaxed afternoon spent catching up and taking a few pictures.

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!

    Funny, because usually the cold would make one want to become quite the hermit and stay reclusive all winter long. But it’s actually a good idea to enjoy the crisp air every now and then.
