African Audrey

Koiimasis | November 2019 | Namibia

For as long as I can remember Audrey Hepburn has inspired me. Her talent as an actress, her kindness and her self-sacrificing dedication to help others have always fascinated me.

“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” And I believe, miracles really do come true. I should know, because I am living a miracle that I never thought would be possible – the dream of living in Africa.

Here in the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, on the Koiimasis Farm, we found a most beautiful landscape of Quiver trees. One of the most iconic landmarks of Namibia, they look like magical giants of old as they silently grace us with their presence. I cannot help but be in awe of their unique beauty.

“Life is a party. Dress for it.” Audrey was right – life really is worth celebrating and dressing up for! Her fashion sense and the layers of meaning that she was able to incorporate into her style continually inspire me. I too love to dress up in my Namibian Boho-chic style.

“We all want to be loved. Don’t we? Everyone looks for a way of finding love. It’s a constant search for affection in every walk of life.”

I know today, that one of the most important things we can give to our fellow human beings and also to ourselves is love and appreciation. It motivates and inspires us. True love and appreciation strengthens us and allows us to grow beyond ourselves. We are all special and unique, and deserve to be treated as such.

One of Audrey’s favourite poems was Time Tested Beauty Tips by Sam Levenson in which he says that “…as you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”

This indeed is very true. As we get older, we start to realise that we not only have an obligation to help others, but that it is also a privilege to do so. I know that not everyone is born as privileged as I am, and for this reason I see it as my duty – and privilege – to extend my helping hand to others so that I may help to make their life a little bit richer and more valuable.

For this shoot, our MYEISHA Lioness Bag SANDRA accompanies me as we take advantage of the wonderful setting and lighting amongst these stunning quiver trees. We named this bag after me, because my idol is Audrey Hepburn and maybe I could be the African Audrey.

“I am not a one in a million kind of girl. I am a once in a lifetime kind of woman.”
All MYEISHA ladies are once in a lifetime kind of women. May we celebrate and adore them all.
