Leandro Dominguez

at the moment my thoughts are often consumed with a single line… WINTER IS COMING. and not just because Game of Thrones starts on 1 april. oh no. it’s still pretty hot here in south africa, but soon the weather is going to turn and i’ll be planning fantasy weekend getaways in log cabins with cosy fireplaces. the winter 2012 collection from Argentinian designer Leandro Dominguez makes me even more excited for my favourite season.

Cardigan Giveaway

The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Emma!


Cardigan is one of my wonderful sponsors (check out yonder sidebar) and i’m really pleased to tell you that Lynne is offering one lucky reader the chance to win a beautiful piece from their Spring collection. some of these styles aren’t even available online yet – so not only are you getting a sneak peek, but you stand the chance to own one. i have my eye on the blue breton stripe, such a classic.

Feel It All Around

31 feel it all around

first of all i have to say a huge THANK YOU to my blogger pals who were so generous in helping out with their wonderful guest posts while i was moving. i know everyone enjoyed having them around (and it was nice having a different perspective around here for a little while).

Mac & Cheese

when i asked Jessica if she’d like to contribute a food related guest post I didn’t give her any direction because I knew that anything she made would be amazingly tasty. i had a good laugh when she sent me this. i was having a discussion with my brother just the other day about what our last meals on earth would be if we could choose, and of course i said mac and cheese. my mom’s mac and cheese, more specifically, but Jessica’s version looks it might be the winner (probably due to this line: “Aim to use as much cheese as possible!  More than you think is appropriate.”)
