All of my festive seasons have been far from snow-covered and fairy-light-embellished. Here in South Africa, we leave the city and flock to the beach for relief from the heat. Our Christmases are more flip flops and cocktails than mulled wine and thigh-high boots. And while Christmas is not about all of the silly things […]
Should you find yourself in Paris with adventure (and time and money of course) to spare, a trip on a train down to Annecy with grazing sheep and green grass as a prelude is in fact a must. Time seems to slow down and you’ll begin to understand why the French see their Parisian countrymen […]
On our last day in Paris, leaving Café de Flore, I felt utterly overwhelmed and more in love than ever. I’d just sat where my literary soul mate spent his Saturday afternoons with his best friend, talking over his most immense creations – the likes of Dick Diver and Jay Gatsby. And I realised in that […]
Weather is finally heating up and spring will soon be in the air. In the interim, my postcards from Cape Town in shades of azure and dreamy turquoise should make the dreary winter blues feel a little less chilly.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings- these are a few of my favourite things.

The Northern hemisphere summer envy is over and while things cool down, here in the South (Africa that is) we get to soak up the sun in some of this year’s best trends- gorgeous silky prints, interesting and textured denim, and stripes stripes stripes for days.
We pulled up to a tent and I think I almost started to cry. If there were a list of ideal places to stay, I probably wouldn’t put dust and walls made of nylon too high up on that list. But you know what? I actually really loved it. It was a definite lesson in […]
My city light and sky-scraper height tendencies aside, every now and then I suppose some clean air and (mostly) empty street vibes can be particularly good for you. A good pair of heels in hand of course, I took to the little town of Parys for corn fields and antique shops galore. There are floors […]
Happy 2017! I’m so glad to finally say that. The last year was a tough one in so many ways for so many people. As I have found myself saying a number of times in the past while, seasons of life come and go and I wish you all strength and compassion for the year […]
Behold my fancy gold lip kits! Let me get right into the thick of the shallowness and tell you all about these babies. So traditionally Kylie’s Lip Kits come with a liner and a matt lipstick, but the birthday edition like the one’s above, albeit gold and ever so shiny, come with only the […]
