so, this week did not go as planned. went to the office on Monday, worked, came home… and then, started feeling a bit weird. four days later and i could finally get out of bed this morning, after enduring the stomach flu of death. i feel like maybe everything is heightened when you’re pregnant? i’m just thankful to have crested the worst of it, but unfortunately that means this week was without posts (i could not even browse the internet, that’s how bad it was guys)
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 feel like it’s been stuck in the same layout / rut for a good few years. mostly i was concerned with readability and page loads, as the blog is so incredibly image heavy it can be quite a strain on your browser.
it’s funny that i have never done any kind of house tour, but the truth is our place is not pinterest worthy. not that it has to be. i could show you pics of the dishes in the sink and the weird basket i keep under the bathroom cabinet that’s filled with toiletries that are probably 5 years old (but i can’t seem to bring myself to throw away? what’s with that). but, you know, it’s not that cool. we don’t live in a magazine house and we probably never will.
hello my friends. sorry, that sounds like the beginning of a spam email – but i assure you it’s not. i haven’t posted since launching that amazing Rennes Giveaway earlier this week because i have unfortunately been sick. perhaps that is why this post sounds a bit barmy (it’s the painkillers, you see). anyway i wanted to assure you i am still here, and that posting shall be resuming with new vim and vigour. in the meantime, here’s what has been up… lately.
as much as i protest against summer (it’s the heat! the heat) it does make for gorgeous photo opportunities, especially if you live in a very snap-worthy place like Cape Town. i’m quite amazed by what i can capture, just wandering along on a daily walk or whatever, with my iPhone. here’s the evidence of that. you can follow all my snaps over at Instagram.
hello! i am still away on holiday, but i thought i’d let you know (if you don’t follow me on twitter or instagram) that Anton and i got engaged yesterday! we got up at 5am to go watch the sun rise over the sea from the cliffs at Kei. i jumped out of the car as soon as we got there to snap some pics on my iPhone, like a true instagram nerd, and when i turned around to look at him he asked… and I said yes. oh, what a feeling.
