Small Town Girl

i was lucky to discover Elize Strydom just as she was about to embark on the South African chapter of her ongoing photography project Small Town Girl – thanks to Jessica for tagging me in her first post. Elize is Australian, but has roots in SA (as you can probably tell by her name 😉) so i was really…

Pampa

i have been receiving Pampa’s newsletter for the better part of a year, but am yet to blog about them – time to remedy that! Pampa was co-founded by photographers Victoria Aguirre from Argentina and Carl Wilson from Australia, who source handwoven products directly from the hands of indigenous Argentinian weavers. Every year we explore some of Argentina’s most remote indigenous…

Mouni Feddag

i love UK illustrator Mouni Feddag’s work soooooooooooooo much. maybe you think i’m exaggerating, but i actually just said that out loud. soooooooooo. much. you know when you like something so much you’re actually like “ugh! i love it SO much!” yeah, that’s how i feel. you can read an interview with her here. “My name’s Mouni…

A cool LA home tour from Homepolish

i remember the first time i discovered Homepolish. i ended up browsing all their home tours, pinning away like some kind of madwoman. Homepolish offers affordable interior design by the hour. basically you sign up, tell them about your project, and they connect you with one of their talented interior designers. you can buy a single day session or…

Covers, etc: Vol 2

way back in the day i did a post called Covers, etc all about an awesome collection of vintage book covers curated by a gentleman named Richard. there are now almost 1500 book covers in his collection, so it’s well worth a second look. i was just thinking this past weekend how grateful i was to…

Crescioni Spring 2016

Californian jewellery line Crescioni has a new Spring collection on the block, and i gotta say i love the big chunky pieces – especially all the brass earrings. women need to wear more jewellery at the beach, huh? i feel like this is a very cool department we’re not tapping. swimwear by Nu Swim, clothes from…

Krogh Studio: News

oooh boy, do i love me a good lookbook you guys. it’s one thing bringing out a new collection, but showcasing your goods in an interesting way is always a challenge. and i feel like Kristina Krogh hit the nail on the head here with her latest print collection News. it was styled by Sofie Brünner…

Zemer Peled

remember when you were a kid at the beach, and you wandered around the rock pools searching for treasure – and then you found a sea anemone… and you wanted to, needed to, stick your finger in it? you didn’t know what’s going to happen! but you, like, really really needed to find out. that’s the first thought i had when…

Pins, Pins, Pins

ABOVE: Life Lessons pins have you guys noticed that enamel pins have become a thing? recently i’ve seen so many rad ones popping up all around the place, and people rocking them in my Instagram feed. and because they’re mostly being made by talented illustrators and designers they’re all super rad. here are some nice ones i found…

September

September is the best! it’s my birthday month, and the weather is always mild and wonderful, and it’s my birthday month! it always feels like a time of new beginnings for me, as if there’s been a palpable shift that we are gearing up toward the end of the year. it’s just my favourite month and so…

Fairfield Porter

the funny thing about growing up watching American TV & movies, but not being from that country, is that you are intimately familiar with things that play no part in your actual life. for example, stereotypical things that make up an American high school: cheerleaders, football players, cafeterias, having a locker – we had none of…

Noémiah FW15

today is “Spring Day” in South Africa – even though our spring equinox is actually on 23 September (my birthday! coincidence? maybe.) i suppose people around here are just too excited to push winter right out of the way. and conversely people on the other side of the world people are quite ready to usher in…

Elizabeth Suzann FW15

so, Elizabeth Suzann has turned into a bit of a cult label since i first blogged about her way back in 2013. that’s because Elizabeth is a bit of a genius. her collections just get better and better – i think she might have reached peak awesomeness with FW15. i truly envy those of…

20 Great places to stay in Cape Town on Airbnb

we have been toying with the idea of possibly renting our place on Airbnb over the summer holidays, as we’ll be out of town for 2 weeks. so i’ve been cruising around checking out other listings to see what people are offering in this beautiful town of ours, and damn if there isn’t a veritable smorgasbord of amazing places…
