i got unexpectedly caught up in a serious wedding frenzy when we got married, something i wasn’t anticipating. the excitement can turn even the most blasé and un-girly girl into a sudden pinterest addict. don’t get me wrong, it was fun. i look back fondly on my wedding induced madness.

Lucie de Moyencourt: Atlantic Seaboard

Atlantic Seaboard

last week we visited a newish deli that opened in my neighbourhood late last year. there is a large Jewish community in Sea Point, so i benefit from all sorts of great stuff in the supermarkets around here that you typically don’t get in other areas of Cape Town (like being able to choose from ten different types of hummus) as well as a deli culture that used to be serviced by the now-closed New York Bagel. so Kleinsky’s is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood, and not only do they do great food – and satisfy my cravings for bagels and schmear – but they also have a rad interior.

Hackwith Design House has just released their all-new swimwear collection. there are currently several different styles of bikini tops and bottoms, as well as two full piece suits, in either black or white that you can mix and match to your liking. but probably my favourite part is that you can see the pieces worn by two different models so that you can get a better idea of how the suit might fit your body type.

a few years ago my dad started painting. as an urban designer he’s always had a pencil in his hand, but he never had the time to flex his creative muscles outside of work. he began experimenting with various mediums, and quickly settled on watercolour painting. i warned him that it was a tough medium – it might look deceptively easy when you see the finished product but actually getting there is, well, an art. there’s no real room for error, unlike oil painting where you can layer and even remove paint if you’ve made a mistake.

Golden Year by Julia Kostreva

Golden Year

i have always been terrible at planning. i don’t plan my day or my week or make lists or any of that stuff – i know i should. and sometimes when i do manage to sort myself out it is almost always handwritten. i tried to use list apps and other techno things to help me out in that department once, but actually having a piece of paper with a list of things i need to do or remember – that is the most helpful to me.

i discovered the work of Mary Laube through Buy Some Damn Art (where you can currently buy some of her original paintings). Mary was born in South Korea but group up in the states, where she received her BFA at Illinois State University. i find her work so graphic and interesting, an artist i would definitely add to my own collection if i could.

Fortnight Lingerie SS15

looking through the SS15 collection from Canadian label Fortnight Lingerie was like visiting an old friend, as they were one of my first sponsors back in 2011! see the feature i did with the woman behind the label, Christina Remenyi, here and another great interview with her at Boots & Pine. it’s a killer lookbook too. if you’re interested in donning yourself in some fancy lady threads visit their website, they are stocked by a bunch of people online.

Mid Week Distraction No. 10

hey guys! man, i’ve hit the ground running since returning from holiday. it feels great, and surprisingly good to be busy after 3 weeks of basically just lying around and eating. i’ve been taking photos of some pretty rad local places for something i’m working on, and rediscovering Cape Town as a veritable tourist. FYI: people treat you really nicely when you have a camera and they think you’re from out of town. or maybe that’s just south africans? well, you guys should come visit. it’s beautiful here.
