Through a series of scary, heartbreaking and triumphant life experiences, I have watched myself transform into a stronger, happier and more peaceful person. Changes on the inside have given way to amazing changes on the outside. I am now completely obsessed with myself! If I am vain, then VANITY is my CULTURE.

Love, Tshwanelo


I am a 30-year-old South African woman on a mission to pursue some long overdue goals. I hold a BSc (Civil Engineering) from UCT and a GDE (Civil Engineering) from Wits. I have always considered myself a creative being and have recently begun to explore my artistic side more deliberately.

My  posts will cover hair, beauty, weight loss, life lessons and creative writing. More detailed descriptions can be found under the respective headings in the Main Menu. Be sure to read these for context and how each area is a key part of my life.

Welcome to Vanity Culture – my journey of self-love.


I would love to hear from you! If you have any comments, suggestions or queries, you can contact me via email or connect with me on social media using the links below.
