Nina and I

May 9, 2017

Nina and I

Becoming a mom is probably one of the best things I have ever done with my life and when I think about the connection that I share with my kids I get so emotional because it’s so real and special and I feel like nothing or no one could ever take it away from me.

So when Nina James and I were invited by the lovely folk at L’Occitane to be a part of their Mother’s Day campaign, which celebrates the connection that every mother has with her child, I jumped at the opportunity. We got to try out some of their amazing products while playing around in my bedroom and the result is this little video, which is such a true reflection of our relationship, because we do pretty much everything together when I’m at home and I know that 20 years from now I’m going to watch it again with her and probably cry!

Last week I started my 5- day long Lucky Pony Bonanza Giveaway on my Instagram account where I gave away one awesome local product a day for 5 days. The response to the giveaway was amazing! I was blown away by everyone’s support and I’d just like to say thanks so much to everyone who entered and well done to those who won. For those who didn’t win, I have some good news – I’m giving away ALL the products that I featured last week in ONE package to ONE lucky person!

Yip, all five products which come from local labels that I love and support are going to be shipped off to one winner to either enjoy by themselves or share with a friend or two.

GIVEAWAY: Hello new guest room

November 4, 2016


Just recently we moved Nina James out of her first ever bedroom into one of the bigger rooms in our flat so that she could have a bunk bed and more space to play and run around. Her old bedroom has been sitting empty or let me rephrase that, has been used as a place for us to store all the stuff  that gets in the way for over a month now. A real refresh of that space was needed and so I tried to think of clever and cost effective ways to turn it from a glorified storeroom into a cool, clean guest bedroom that hopefully our guests would be happy to sleep in.

Churche, GIVEAWAYS, photography


October 25, 2016


I have a new lookbook that I have just shot under Churche that I have been dying to share with you guys. It’s for a local label called Mungo that was founded in 1998 by Master Weaver Stuart Holding. It’s based in the seaside town of Plettenberg Bay where they design, weave and make a wide range of homeware products including table linens, bedding, throws, apparel and more.

-Mungo is a unique textile company with the rare ability to create fabrics from the inception of design to the final product. Ensuring all our products are from an ethical and quality beginning.

All I know is they make some of the nicest things I have ever seen and after the shoot, I just wanted to keep everything for myself! Their designs are so beautiful and clean, I love their colour combos and all their pieces not only look but feel amazing. I really had fun shooting this lookbook and I really hope you guys like it.
