Mid Week Distraction No.7

Mid Week Distraction No. 7

i don’t know why i thought about this scene from You’ve Got Mail while i was compiling this week’s Mid Week Distraction, maybe because i feel like i’m sending a list of cool stuff to a faraway pen pal. did your parents ever clip interesting things out of the newspaper and post (or fax!) them to friends & family? that’s what this feels like.

Mid Week Distraction No. 6

jees guys i’ve gotta tell you, Mid Week Distraction has pushed my internet combing to another level. i have a whole new respect for people who work for BuzzFeed and other mega online publications – where do they find the TIME to compile so many juicy lists? i mean, obviously they get…

Miss Moss: Nice Things No.22

Goodies No. 22

if you check in around here on your browser you might have noticed a Shop link in the top menu. since i can’t do a million Nice Things posts i thought i would occasionally update my virtual wishlist, making it easy for you to browse and shop – if you like!…

Mid Week Distraction No. 5

some days, nay, weeks are hard to get through – and i feel like this one is a particular slog. i think it might be because it dawned on me this morning that it’s basically a month till Christmas. so if you are in the same boat then perhaps some of these distractions will help.

Mid Week Distraction No.4

guys. this feels weird to admit, but, i’ve been listening to 1989 a LOT. this coming from someone who never really knew what Taylor Swift was all about until this year – when i started seeing her pop up all over MY internets. of course she has been a mega star forever,…

Miss Moss // Lately

Lately

so if you’re checking into the site itself and not reading via bloglovin or rss (or some other fancy way i don’t know about!) then you’ll notice things look a bit different around here! i have been wanting to change the look of the blog for a long time, as i…

Mid Week Distraction No.3

QUESTION * how do you guys consume your online content these days? i’m still a faithful RSS subscriber, even after Google Reader crashed and burned into the internet blackhole last year (i’ve been using Feedly ever since). i was having this conversation with a friend last night, who visits individual…

Mid Week Distraction No.2

now that we’re at issue 2 of Mid Week Distractions it already feels like a regular thing! i enjoyed bookmarking all the interesting things i came across in the last week, and it was also pretty nice for me to go through them again. enjoy.

Mid Week Distraction No.1

i come across a lot of things during my week that don’t necessarily fit into the category of These Things or Nice Things, but that i usually tweet about or just email to my friends. that’s one of the main ways that i, too, discover interesting and/or enjoyably distracting things online – especially from…

Beauty by Emoji // Miss Moss

Beauty by Emoji

i’ve done a beauty type post before, but never really delved into what i actually use in my daily routine. confession: i am a beauty product hoarder. the other day i discovered a box of half empty beauty products from years ago and for a moment i thought – maybe i…

Miss Moss // These Things No.62

These Things No.62

this is a home edition of These Things – a Home Things, if you will. at the moment my mind is quite preoccupied with making our place look nice. we live in a one bedroom flat in Sea Point, a suburb of Cape Town on the Atlantic seaboard – literally…

Clouds

yesterday we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and as a serious treat we spent a night at Clouds Estate outside Stellenbosch. we stayed here just after our wedding, so it was special for us to return, and of course just amazing to get to spend time at this exquisite location. if you…

These Things No.61

excuse my pudgy toes. hey guys! it’s my birthday today. i woke up to beautiful flowers, and white chocolate cheese cake in bed and a new kindle (thank you, kind generous husband). i’m 31 today, which feels weird to say because sometimes i still have this sentiment about my age.

i recently shared some personal stuff like our weekend at Die Laaitjie and some of my trip to Johannesburg, but here’s the rest of what’s been happening lately.

Golly Magazine

Golly

sadly the only time i ever buy a magazine these days is when i am about to get on a flight and i know i’m going to be without wi-fi for the next few hours (also, i recently dropped & broke my trusty kindle so now that option has flown out…
