Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture

March 25, 2015

I know that is this going back quite a few years, but I don’t care. These dresses that formed part of the Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture collection are so damn beautiful that I wanted to post about them again here in 2015.

Every single gown looks like it would fit perfectly into a period piece drama about the worlds most beautiful vampires, do you know what I mean?

Vicky Cristina’s

A little while ago Anna-Belle and I went to Vicky Cristina’s in the The Colony Shopping Centre. It was my first time visiting this restaurant as I’m always popping into Pronto (one of my favourite places to eat) when I’m in that area, but I’m glad I tried it out.

Vicky Cristina’s feels more like a night time spot then a day time one, as the colour scheme is predominantly black and red, but their food is good and I can imagine that it tastes the same day or night. The menu boasts a large variety of tapas meals, but it does have some full meals on it to.

Mike Dargas was born in 1983 in Cologne and he responsible for these huge photo realistic oil paintings. They are so good, at first when I saw the photos of him painting on the canvases they confused me a bit, because I didn’t realise how big they actually were. I can’t believe how much detail and accuracy goes into each one. You would think on a bigger scale it would be more obvious that they were paintings and not photographs, but that is not the case. They are so well done they almost bring tears to my eyes.

Beautiful Swedish home

March 22, 2015

I’m forever posting about beautiful Swedish homes on my blog, I think that one day I may have to pack my bags, move there and into one of them. One day when I’m super rich (because they are always so expensive to buy), tall, blonde and can speak fluent Swedish.

How absolutely amazing is this turn of the century apartment that is located in a 1920’s building in Sweden. I love everything about it, the pops of colour, the vintage door frames, the furniture, the art choices, the green bath. Whoever owns it has some damn fine taste.

Adam-Carpenter

I haven’t posted one of these in a while, but when I watched this music video on booooooom by Adam Carpenter, who has been dubbed the Instagram Dance King, I felt like I had to share it with you guys. It’s one of the best and craziest dance themed music videos I have ever seen. Adam’s ideas are so much fun and clever and the whole thing makes you want to get up and dance like a nutcase on a rooftop whose had waaaay too much vodka.

Judging by his Instagram account which is called Daily Dance, he likes to have fun and he’s now officially a part of my feed, because I think every one needs a bit of silly in their lives at least once a day.

Shun De

I absolutely love oriental food, even before Shane and I opened The Good Luck Club I had a soft spot for this kind of cuisine, so when my friend Ying said that she would take me to one of her all time most favourite Chinese restaurants in Cyrildene called Shun De, my stomach instantly started doing somersaults.

Shun De is a bit of a hidden gem located on the ever bustling Derrick Avenue in Cyrildene. If any of you have ever been to this specific area which is affectionally called Joburg’s Chinatown, you will know that it is full of people, cars, cats and lots of different unassuming restaurants that often go unnoticed, unless someone has recommended them to you.
