My beautiful friend Amy has once again out done herself with her latest Jane Sews Summer Capsule Collection. She sent me her new look book and I pretty much drooled all over my computer going through it. There are so many cool pieces to choose from and they’re all so perfect for Summer, they’re flowly and light and so pretty. Love the dresses with the cutout mid-drift and the ivory top with the embroidery on the sleeves, hell I love them all.

Nice one Amy face, you’re a little star and once again you have created such amazing things with your amazing little hands.

Hello everyone and happy Monday, today I’m starting a new #lucky_wins giveaway with the lovely ladies from Mungo & Jemima, which I’m so excited to share with you guys.

Last week I got to go on a bit of a shop via their brand new, very cool online store. Their newly designed site has been beautifully curated and so there are lots of super pretty pieces to choose from. I had a look around and then settled on this sweet Selfi Horizon Dress, because I really loved the confetti-like print on top and the light pink bottom half, it reminded me of a glass of ice cold pink lemonade.

And so just like that I went shopping on their online store, and now so can you guys….

All you have to do to enter and win is:

Emily Jane Long – painter extraordinaire

Emily Jane Long10

2 days ago I posted about a piece of art that I had commissioned for Shane for our 6th wedding anniversary. What I didn’t know was that Shane had also secretly commissioned another brilliant local South African artist, Emily Jane Long to create a piece of art for me as a gift. It was so awesome when we both pulled out these 2 flat wrapped gifts and almost immediately we both realised what they were.

Cool spaces: The home of Remo Giuffré

November 20, 2014

Remo Giuffre-2

This is the very eclectic home of Remo Giuffré and his family. I came across this space on Design Files and loved every photo they took of it, wish there were more because there is just so much to look at – my favourite kind of space.

- There is something positively museum-like about this space… it is layered with nostalgic mementoes of family life, and love, and a lifetime of artefacts.  Every family should (and probably does?) have this stuff… but.. somehow, the way it has been lovingly collected and displayed here takes things to another level!
