elle oh elle

the september Elle magazine has been out since mid-august, and i was determined to wait till september to actually post about this – but i am far too impatient for my own good….

kim, lana, lauren and i were lucky enough to be featured in their spring issue for ‘the scoop on spring’. in case you read the article and were wondering what on earth i was talking about – here’s my post about atonement & morris and here is the old mac daddy trailer park. i also mentioned silk blouses, this is what i had in mind:

if you discovered my blog through the Elle, welcome! and thanks Elle mag, what an honour.

things i like right now by lauren of glossary

Hello Miss Moss Readers! Thanks for having me Di!

I love scribbling up wishlists. Here are ten things I’d love to get my paws on now!

  1. A return ticket to New York: Cliche’d perhaps but I want to experience all the movie-moments from hailing yellow cabs to eating giant pretzels in Central Park.
  2. Stamps from Nothing Elegant: I’m in love with this sweet range on Etsy.
  3. Diana Camera: I know every girl and her blog has one but I really want one too.
  4. Boater Hat: Pleeeease let me know if you see one in the shops!
  5. Mint Nailpolish: I keep seeing peppermint nails on the bloggers abroad and I’m utterly smitten with it too.
  6. A curling iron: I want to start experimenting with my hair more and this gizmo is just the ticket.
  7. Espadrilles: I hope they arrive in SA soon!
  8. 99 cones all round!
  9. Black Oxfords: I saw a pair like these a few months ago and totally regret not buying ’em.
  10. Picnic set for parties out of a basket!

I hope you enjoyed my wish-list and I’d love to hear what you’re wishing for too!

natali: things i like right now

introducing a new guest post feature where i ask south african bloggers & friends what they like, right now…

things i like right now* by natali of narrylikes

  1. leggins. current fav: grey / black zebra print.
  2. l’oreal true match foundation. perfect color match, super fast application and blends very easily. good coverage, but at the same time your skin feels like it can breathe.
  3. oversized pocket cardigans. any color will do and most stores have them. they’re very comfortable and you can wear it with just about anything and everything.
  4. mac blot powder. must-have. best. thing. ever. tip: use a big fluffy powder brush for the best application.
  5. cake pops. basically it’s cake mixed with frosting, dipped in chocolate – on a stick! yum. try the red velvet version (mixed with cream cheese frosting). dee-licious!
  6. wallpaper* city guides (phaidon). love these little books and you can make a rainbow if you stack em. nice for a little escape and visiting a different city each time. plus, i love opening the first page and comparing skylines. things dorks do.
  7. the prophet by kahlil gibran. there are no words truer than these.
  8. sally hansen insta dri. discovered these at a k-mart. it has a flat brush that gives you a lot of control and insta dri means exactly that – it literally dries instantly.
  9. american apparel tri-blend light weight raglan pullovers. ah-ma-zing! bought my first one a few years ago and they are still my favorite of all favorites. you can stretch them as much as you like – works great for an off-the-shoulder look – and they make very comfy pajamas too :)

* and in some cases – always

we really need those sally hansen insta dri polishes here, hey? i’m on board with everything else on this list, too. what kind of person wouldn’t like cake on a stick.

aah, that new blog smell

perhaps you’ve noticed things look a bit different  around here, that’s because i’ve implemented a brand spanking sparkly shiny new look .  the layout is a bit simpler – with all the categories and archives far easier to navigate. this mini-makeover left me with precious little time to do an…
