Chrissie White

i have featured the work of talented young photographer Chrissie White before here and here, so i was catching up on her flickr stream when i noticed some amazing photos of her friend in various gorgeous landscapes. turns out they are part of a photo set called Deserted – a…

Valentina

today i discovered the music of London based Italian-English singer Valentina. i know literally nothing about her (google has failed me, i guess) but you can buy her EP Wolves, which is out now on iTunes, and also listen to snippets of it on her label’s soundcloud page. watch the videos…

Handmade in Moste

Klara and Klemen are students of architecture who live in an old house in Moste, Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. they regularly walked past the once grand villa hidden amongst the trees in this old neighborhood, and wondered about the abandoned looking apartment inside – which, it turned out, had…

These Things No.53

what’s this? posting on a saturday! well it’s raining outside, and i have been lying in bed catching up on the internet. in case you, like me, are somewhere out there having a lazy saturday and you want to look at some beautiful things over your morning coffee, or mid-afternoon…

Lost in the Light

i thought i’d offer a music mix in exchange for the fact that my posting has been patchy the past two days. it is a bit of a reflective, mid-year mix – mostly pretty down tempo, and featuring two of my favourite artists who are releasing new work. namely Goldfrapp…

Alicia Galer

i was sitting at my computer today, at work, after the usual 40 minute commute – and my back was hurting. my arms were stiff. all this sitting… is not helping my life. and i felt uninspired, and tired. i felt like i was having a bit of a moment…

Uniform

i discovered this old post and thought it deserved a revival of sorts. 6 outfits made up of 3 essential items. they are not all budget friendly though, i apologise. if i make fantasy outfits they really tend to be exactly that. row 1: A.P.C. Jenny Sweater // Weekend by…

Jane Sews S/S 2013

i’ve been waiting for the release of the new collection from Durban-based Jane Sews ever since spying some sneak peaks on their Instagram (especially those cute sandals). they just released this sweet lookbook, which features that iconic Loves Me, Loves Me Not side table from Cape Town based furniture designers Vogel. i own…

Floralia

Artsy is fast becoming one of my favourite daily internet check-ins. i’ve discovered so many artists that i probably would never have known about otherwise thanks to it. besides the clean & beautiful design, i’m also quite taken by the fact that you can log in and favourite pieces as…

WSAKE

here is a sweet new small summer collection from WSAKE, who i featured previously in my Jewels post. a father and daughter duo from Regensburg in Germany, WSAKE mainly makes beautiful jewellery – but they also create small editions of objects & postcards. i especially love their wreath & coral pendants and…

The Flowers

it is now just over 2 months till our wedding. 11 weeks to be exact. i have been thinking about it a lot this month, mostly because there are admin things that have to be sorted out – stuff i haven’t had to give any thought to because they weren’t…

South2 West8

thanks to Tomboy Style for introducing me to South2 West8, a Japanese line of classic outdoor sportswear and accessories. their bags are, interestingly enough, produced in the USA – and take influence from heavy duty outdoor bags, particularly those manufactured in the 70s & 80s (Filson came to mind). you can shop…

Warm Weather

it’s that time of year again where i do my annual post about summer psyching. this has mostly do with all the imagery i have seen on instagram and twitter and in my blog feed from people who live in, or are currently holidaying in, the northern hemisphere. i know…

Goodies No.17

hello! wow, you guys have been going pretty nuts on that Baggu giveaway. i don’t blame you – if i were to invoke the treat yo self policy right now, i would definitely splurge on one of those totes. but if you’re not a bag kinda person (or perhaps you…

Alexandra Höjer

if you’re a Capetonian you’ll be familiar with Swedish fashion designer Alexandra Höjer, and her beautiful clothing which she sells from her boutique in Kloof Street. i had heard that she had a new shop in the works, but had no idea how cool it was until i stumbled upon it…
