hello! a These Things is long overdue – and i figured since a lot of you were on holiday it was time for a recap of sorts. i also had a mini-holiday this weekend, we were treated to a night at the amazing Clouds Estate for Anton’s birthday. it’s a bit of a luxury spot in the winelands just outside my home town of Stellenbosch. if you’re ever in this part of the world, and you want to treat yo self, then this is the place. and go eat at Tokara for dinner (have the baked alaska with salmon ice-cream. do it!)

this story stayed with me all week – artist Judy Millar built her house overlooking the black sands of Anawhata beach outside Aukland. thanks to FvF for covering such interesting people, as always:

  1. Such a great list – thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to make the cauliflower risotto, and I must have those nude sandals from & Other Stories!

  2. Anawhata beach is fantastic and I love going there! It’s one of Auckland’s stunning west coast volcanic black sand beaches. Like most beaches it’s public, but the steep and windy path from the carpark keeps visitors to a minimum.
