On home…

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - FASHION MUST HAVE -

Home to me is where I feel most com­fort­able. Most ac­cepted. Most my­self. Where I feel like ev­ery­body ac­cepts me for who I am. My quirks, my wrin­kles, my good side and my bad side. That’s home to me.

I think we dis­count a lot of times how im­por­tant it is to feel

safe and com­fort­able at home. When I come home at night I just feel good be­cause [I am] fi­nally home. And ev­ery­body should feel that way. I think it’s very im­por­tant. It’s crit­i­cal; it’s your well­be­ing.

I have my grandma’s china, I have all her old quilts and I have my mother’s sil­ver­ware. There are lit­tle touch­stones ev­ery­where that re­mind you of your fam­ily.

I used to be re­ally in­tim­i­dated by din­ner par­ties. Then I re­alised any­body com­ing to my house loves me any­way. Now I put less em­pha­sis on per­fec­tion and more on joy and hap­pi­ness.
