Yardbird in Hong Kong

Guided

city guides are one of my favourite things to discover online (i even created my own one for Cape Town, and also a guide of sorts to places i like in NYC). i bookmark them all the time, even though i probably have no intention to travel to some of…

Olend Backpacks

Ölend

spotted this lookbook for Barcelona based backpack makers Ölend on thisispaper, and i am particularly taken by the sweet styling of high-waist jeans and chunky knits. that’s exactly how i would imagine myself if i was travelling through the north of England on a cold day (or whatever). there would be…

Lynnie Zulu

Lynnie Zulu

browsing the vibrant work of London based illustrator Lynnie Zulu is the perfect antidote to a Monday. growing up in Scotland, drawing was a form of escapism from an early age and much of her work draws from her family’s Tanzanian heritage. also the cursor on her website is a…

French Kiss

if there is one movie that i have watched countless times, it is French Kiss. i first saw it back in 1995 when i was 12 years old, and i didn’t even know that Kevin Kline wasn’t really French (i would later discover him in A Fish Called Wanda and…

Miss Moss // Drama on the Streets

Drama on the Streets

i felt like these deserved a re-post! you see, i have been going through my archives and i rediscovered these Period Drama vs Street Style colour comparisons that I did way back in 2011 for Hila (you can see the original posts here and here). i never actually posted them…

Selfi SS14

Selfi SS14

if you’re a Capetonian (or just a South African girl, really) you’ll be more than familiar with the wonderful Selfi, whose clothing i just a-d-o-r-e. designer Celeste has done it again with her new SS14 range. how sweet is that peplum cut out dress? i also absolutely love the flap…

Double Tap: Adrian De Sa Garces

one of the cool things about Instagram is seeing what other South Africans are up to on their summer holidays – a lot of people go up the coast, or spend their days on the beach, or go on road trips. others travel further afield, visiting family and friends they…

MOMO
