Marisa Howard of Seaworthy has just added some sterling silver pieces to her latest collection, Gravity. i looooove those large hoop earrings. Sterling silver has a rich history, dating back to the 12th century. I’ve…

Tony Chestnut Summer 2016 17

Tony Chestnut Summer 2016

the one thing i’m pretty excited about right now, besides actually meeting our baby, is the prospect of wearing “normal” clothes again. i have been rotating the same 5 pieces for what feels like, well, 9 months – and i’m ready to dip into my usual wardrobe. so when designer Jill…

Letterclub

hey! feel like i haven’t spoken to you guys in ages. that’s because our life has been turned upside down – we moved into our new house (where there is still no internet connection…) and i am officially nearing the end of my pregnancy. as in, our boy could come any day…

Baby Blanket

Baby Things

above: kaleidoscope cloud blanket. forgive me, for i am not in my right mind. i am a broody, anxiously waiting mom-to-be. i can’t stop thinking about babies. our baby. we are only a month away from welcoming the little dude, so i’m awake at 2am googling “do i REALLY need a changing table?”…

Signet rings by LHN Jewelry

Badass Rings

lately i’ve been noticing some seriously cool badass rings around. the trend in the past few years has been towards fine, dainty jewellery – especially stacking rings (which i still and will always love). but recently i’ve been really drawn to the more chunky variety, maybe it’s because my fingers are so…

Mama Bird

Mama Bird

Marilyn

Thank you

it’s the blog’s 7th birthday today! i already did a post about all that jazz last week, here it is. the one reason this dear old bunch of code and jpgs is still in existence is because of my cool sponsors, without which i would not be able to keep running it. so…

Polder

Polder + April Showers

polder is a boutique in Paris that also has a girls line called april showers. originally i was just going to share the new polder spring 2016 collection, but was totally seduced by the kids line, too. The Parisian brand polder was created in 2000 by two sisters of Dutch origin, Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel.…

OneDuo diaper backpack

Diaper Backpacks (that aren’t ugly)

Above: diaper backpack by One Duo. fun fact, we don’t call them diapers – we call them nappies. so really, it’s a nappy bag. but for the sake of the internet i’m going to switch to the American version here. soooooooo, diaper bags! yeeeesh. that’s basically my reaction whenever i even…

We believe that business is a means to support social change, so with every purchase, a portion of proceeds is donated to local organizations dedicated to rebuilding the lives…

Tinker

Tinker

Tinker is a sort of a choose your own adventure watch brand. you pick the size, strap colour and finish you want – and that’s the watch you get. it’s fun building your own watch… i think i would pick the smallest face, in gold, with a blush pink strap. or black! or…

Club Petanque

Club Petanque

oh what i would give to wear a cosy sweatshirt right now. this week in Cape Town it would be more of a SWEAT shirt, know what i’m saying? Club Petanque is, as you may already have guessed, very French – selling cool sweats and tees for men and women,…

Pajamas, Pyjamas (Potatoes, Potahtoes)

Jim Jams

i decided to title this post Jim Jams because that’s what i call pyjamas. no, i’m not five. but it’s easier than trying to decide if i should go with the British spelling of pyjamas or the wholly more sensible American spelling of pajamas. PJs, jim jams, pyjamas, pajamas, sleepwear – whatever…
