6 months and 1 week…08. May 2014
So I’m 6 months and 1 week into my pregnancy, yesterday I went to see my doctor for another scan and he was happy with everything that he saw. Our little Shangie weighs 887 grams and she was busy scratching her ear when we were checking her out for the first time. I know it’s only a blurred black and white figure on the screen, but to me she is just so damn cute. If I see a hand or a foot or her scratch her ear I feel like I’m looking at the most amazing thing in the world.
We are going to start on the babies room soon, so I thought I would use this post to show you a picture of baby Shangie, a few snaps of my ever-growing belly, wowzers this thing just gets bigger and bigger by the day in my eyes. Im getting to the stage now where Shane has to help me tie my shoelaces or buckles if I’m wearing jeans and I sleep with a mountain of pillows around me and tucked under my belly. Again, this stage is all so new to me, so everyday is different and the same, if you know what I mean? I’m still having good days and a couple of bad ones, yip I’m still suffering from morning sickness every few days, which I’ve heard is not uncommon, it’s just not cool. But Shangie kind of makes up for it with all the company she keeps me, she moves like a crazy person in my stomach sometimes, I feel her moving quite a bit and it makes me happy that we’re connecting in that way, I always imagine that she’s so bored in there, with nothing to do and so she just Footloose dances up and down my stomach a few times a day to keep herself entertained.
Anyway, soon enough she will be here and all the nausea, the backache, the swelling, the not fitting into any of my clothes ( I miss my clothes), the sudden love of all thing elasticated and loose, the constant craving for super rare biltong (this one has been a favourite of mine my whole life, so I don’t see it going anywhere, it’s just that I can’t have it now, so the craving is bigger) will fade and we will be on a new crazy adventure. Looking forward to seeing if she’s going to be as feisty in real life.
This is where I’m at now – 6 months and a week
Shane and I were thinking about going black, white and light wood in the babies room, with pops of colour here and there through toys, art, wallpaper, bedding etc. Shane is actually going to build the babies crib, which I’m super excited about – I didn’t realise that he was so damn handy with power tools, he’s nearly done (just has to paint) with the spare room/office/bed device he has built us, which I will definitely do a post on when complete.
Below are some references of the kind of thing we are thinking of doing….

Food, Wine, Design and Presents for meeee.11. November 2013
I went to the Sanlam Food Wine Design Fair in Hyde Park on Thursday night and I treated my eyes and my stomach to some very nice things. This years fair was bigger and and even better than last years and all I can say is that I’m sad that it only happens once a year, would be cool if it was ever few months.
The usual beautiful suspects were there, like Dear Rae and Missibaba, but this year there were also quite a few new design studios (homeware) that had their stuff out on display and some of it was damn nice- love the TWG tea and the Larry King plate below.
I’m hoping a lot of you got to experience the fair firsthand, but for those of you who didn’t, here are a few snapshots I took on the night.
Thanks again Sanlam for having me, I had a great evening and I came home with two very cute things, one for my house and one for meeeee.
I bought this very cool plate for my plate wall, which is coming together so nicely – I will post pictures of it soon.
I also bought myself this very dainty Dear Rae necklace, which I have worn every day since Thursday, her stuff will have that effect of you.

Anatomy Design05. December 2012
A new interiors shop called Anatomy Design has just opened up in 44 Stanley and I went to go check it out. It’s a cozy space that is full of very sweet things to buy from ceramic pieces to art to designer furniture to cushions to some super cool lamps, amongst other things. I definitely think it’s worth a visit if you are looking for some nice stuff for your house or a gift for someone for Christmas, I mean who wouldn’t want a plate with a pigeon on it?! Love those.
