Titch

TITCH-2

I came across this local label called Titch that is based in Cape Town. They make really nice leather bags and clutches and you can see just by looking at their photos that their products are soft and lush. I really like their stuff, so I thought I would share it with you guys, just in case you were looking for a new handbag, plus it’s all local and that’s the only way to go! How great is their Backpack Sling?

– All materials are locally and sustainably sourced and products are meticulously crafted by our small and intimate team in Cape Town. A great deal of care is put into each and every product at all stages of the process.

The other day I tried my hand at an Italian Cream Cake. For those of you who have no idea what an Italian Cream Cake is, not to worry I’ll explain…it’s a white cake that originates from the South that is flavoured with coconut and pecan nuts and covered in cream cheese icing. I know what you’re going to say, where does the Italian and cream fit into it? Well the cream is in the batter and as for the Italian, I’m as confused as you are on that one…

Yesterday we went on yet another PUMAgram Instawalk. A bunch of us gathered in Maboneng and ventured in around the area. There are such cool buildings and wide, empty (it was a Sunday) streets, so shooting was so much fun.

I have included some of the photos I took yesterday on the Instawalk walk, I have also included some new pics of my brand new Brooklyn We Go Hard PUMA, which I think I may or may not have a crush on (I do). I have been eyeing these puppies out for ages and I finally got a pair. Baby peach and white is the future.

Knead Sandton

Knead-Sandton-8-of-17

There is an artisan bakery located in The Michealangel Towers called Knead, which we visited the other day. It’s such a cool spot and not what you would expect to find in a mall. It’s a bright, well designed and a breath of fresh air that serves beautifully baked breads and cakes and serves one mean tasting Flat White.
