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…

The smell of Jasmine

been noticing flowers everywhere lately, especially with the wedding around the corner. all i can think about are arrangements and what’s in season and blooms blooms blooms. i’ve started buying flowers whenever i’m in the supermarket, something i’ve never done before. perhaps it’s also because i know that spring is…

Floralia

Artsy is fast becoming one of my favourite daily internet check-ins. i’ve discovered so many artists that i probably would never have known about otherwise thanks to it. besides the clean & beautiful design, i’m also quite taken by the fact that you can log in and favourite pieces as…

Bread & Wine & Exotic plants

i went to bread & wine this past weekend, the beautiful restaurant at moreson wine farm in franschhoek. this place is heaven for me –  99% due to their homemade charcuterie. i am a sucker for some cured meat. but i’m not going to talk about the delicious mozzarella & tomato…
