Mini letters

Dear 2016, where are you going so quickly? Slow down. Please.

Dear Cape Town, I love you so much. I just don’t love the 4 seasons in a day… which takes me to…

Dear Summer, please could you just set in now. I see you have settled in quite well in Johannesburg (thanks to all the fab Instagram posts my friends post of their days by the pool.) I’m a little jealous that we have fewer Summer months than Joburg. clifton
Dear Angels, thank you for keeping Sox safe after his car accident on Saturday night, while I happened to be 2 hours out of Cape Town – my stress levels!!

Dear weekend, you were quite the balance of celebrating life and love (friends wedding) and a big reminder of how short life can be in a blink of an eye. We need to appreciate everyone in our lives, daily. Sox and Bailey.jpg

Dear ladies, I wish we didn’t have to wash our faces at night. There. I said it.

Dear feet, you used to be so great in heels. I used to be able to run in heels. Since moving to Cape Town, I rarely wear them and when I do, my feet burn. Thank you for being so good on Saturday night – it’s the first time I actually danced until 1am and they didn’t hurt. Dear heels – thank you for being so gorgeous and comfortable. It’s rare to find that combination these days.Bailey's Heels Lilikoi.jpgDear birds, my car is not your personal litter box. For the love of…

Dear car wash, I can actually see my poor little car again, yay! I always wanted a black car -so smart and sophisticated. Never again. It shows up every speck of dust and dirt.

Dear Orchid, thank you for making me feel so proud! I feel like a real adult now. Not only did I not kill it, but it has re flowered and it’s brought me such joy. bailey-schneiders-orchid

Dear Essentials Magazine, thank you for the lovely article. It’s in the October issue and I’d love you to buy a copy and read. I even shared my embarrassing moment about knickers. bailey-schneider-in-essentials-magazine-2016

Dear FoxBox, I really do heart you for always keeping my hands and feet in great condition. I usually mix and match the colours of my manis and pedis, but I really loved the pale pinkish colour in Gelish. It’s called Bashful.bailey-schneider-manicure-and-pedicure-fox-box

Dear lemon water, I feel like we need to reconnect. In fact, I feel like I need to increase my daily water intake full stop.

Dear Pilates, will I ever master you? You kick my ass (and core.)

Dear husband, thank you for my beautiful roses. What a treat to come and find just because flowers.Roses.jpg
