Conscious Style // South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa is one of those cities that has everything. Amazing food, a great fashion scene, stunning scenery, gorgeous wineries , the ocean and the mountains- everything I need in life! And it just happens to have my best friend too (well, she lives a bit outside of Cape Town). Vanessa and I grew up together in California and then were roommates until we were in our mid-twenties, when she met the man of her dreams and moved to South Africa. I miss having her so close, but thankfully I get to see her a couple times a year, and we skype a lot. We did a girls trip slash work trip in Cape Town last month with just the two of us and it was soooo fun!! I can't wait to go back.
