These Things No. 65

here are ten THINGS! one of my favourite voyeuristic things at the moment is seeing life through Jamie Beck’s eyes since she moved from NYC  to Provence. (do you guys remember her blog way back when it was hosted on Tumblr?). she visits old chateaus and shops at the local market and…

Goodies No. 30

how do you guys keep up with cool things to peruse (or even buy when you are flush) on the internet? i feel like much of my online time is dedicated to instagram / twitter, which aren’t highly shoppable. since i don’t go to the shops much anymore – and…

The Last Time I Was In Paris

i remember this trip to Paris fondly because i had just kind of met Anton, and i was thinking about him the entire time i was there (we only started dating the following year). i haven’t been back since, and i am dying to go again. i know some people who are…

Crescioni Spring 17

oh my gosh i LOOOOOOOVE this lookbook! the location, the styling, the model – and of course the products. showcasing LA based Crescioni’s Spring 2017 collection, including a capsule collection of woven palm and brass jewellery, made in collaboration with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. The six styles are staples from Crescioni’s…

A Compendium of Radness

i want to preface this post by talking about the blog a little bit. way back in 2009 when i first started blogging i was just sharing (often random) things i loved; and i still do, of course. but at some point the blogging world because serious business, and then we had to compete…

Mid Week Distraction No. 36

i actually have a secret Pinterest board called Mid Week Distractions that i save all of these into, FYI. and man has that board been collecting dust. if you want to see fun, weird internet things more regularly i would highly recommend the Reddit app – it’s my most scrolled resource…

Goodies No. 29

time for some GOODIES! first of all, the new Mara Hoffman swimwear is DELICIOUS. the above high-waisted bikini is my fave, also all of these… well, everything! if i needed a shower curtain i would definitely get this one by Quiet Town: these vessels by Sophie Eveleigh are gorgeous: my favourite emoji…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Yellow Gold

i finished wrapping all our presents yesterday, and we had an early Christmas dinner with Anton’s family to swap gifts before everyone split up for the holidays. i made a truly eighties style gammon, everyone brought a side dish, and we had red velvet cake for dessert. i also listened to Christmas…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Blue

have you finished shopping? no? really? i’m at the stage now where i just want Christmas to be over. it’s making me BLUE, you guys! see the rest of the gift guides here.

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Brown

maybe BROWN is a weird colour to pick for a gift guide. uuuum, amber? tan? caramel? coffee? cocoa? let’s not try to be fancy – it’s all brown in my books. but this is good stuff, you guys! have you done all your Christmas shopping yet? i am about halfway.…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Red

oh my, i never thought i’d say this… but RED might be my favourite gift guide so far! i would happily wear this tee and this cap while sipping coffee out of this flask and skimming this book by the glow of this light – all with a tomato sheet mask on…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: White

the only thing that’s white about our Christmases are our beaches. i was just recently musing how i would love to someday house swap with someone up north during the festive season, just to experience a cold Christmas for once. but there is also something comforting about eating cold meats, salads…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Green

it’s surprisingly tough to find green themed gifts, perhaps it’s just not a fashionable colour right now? but i, for one, love all these things – especially the marbled pieces. that octopus hook is super cute too (i have another awesome hook that i’ll be featuring in my Gold gifts guide…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Black

i actually didn’t intentionally PLAN to post my black 2016 Holiday Gift Guide post on Black Friday, but there you go. a strange thing has happened in South Africa – and i’m sure everywhere else in the world – Black Friday has become a thing here. which i find amazing because…

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Pink

i actually haven’t done gift guides in a couple of years, so i thought it was about time to revive these! and as is tradition, i am sorting them by colour. truth be told i don’t really want anything for Christmas this year. i would love just to hang out…
